Cutting Down A Sm3k Tank?

31 March 2010 - 11:31 AM

Hi, I was wondering if you could cut the pieces in red so it would be smaller and easier to integrate.

If you cut it would it puncture the tank making it useless?
Thank you for your help. If I can get it to work I will post a writeup for my mod.
Thanks again!

You May Not Want To Re-barrell Your 4b Just Yet...

17 February 2010 - 07:09 PM

Hello! This is my first post, and I would like thank you guys for validating me! I hope to have a good time on the forums! Now lets get on to the modding...

What you will need:

1. Wall-Mart rocket thing that didn't even have a name. $3 and my dad found it in a checkout isle
2. Electrical tape

Sounds simple? Well it is!

First, here is a picture of the gun...

It really comes with three rockets, but I lost one already. And it doesn't come with the electrical tape added :D

Well, by now I assume you know what to do so grab some e-tape and a rocket.

Then grab some e-tape and wrap it around the front end until you are satisfied. There's a reason why I'm not listing a certain amount. There is no set amount of tape that you can add. For all three rockets I used the same amount of e-tape on the first try, and it worked for only one. You will need to test different amounts for every rocket. So you will need a little of trial and error to get it right. When you get it right it should fly straight. But that's part of modding!

Here's my finished product:

Now on to the good part that you guys want to know...RANGES.

For the ranges I used a Berserker with only the little orange tab on the missile launcher cut off.

To load:

The first time you will put it on it will be pretty tight. You will probably have to screw it on. After a few shots
the foam adjusts and it fits perfect.

Here is a shot of it loaded (sorry for the sunny pic)

All ranges were taken with a laser range finder. I tried to shoot it as level as possible, because our level just cracked thanks to our little sister.

Here is a picture showing a shot through the range finder. I was a pain to align it up so I only did it the first time. You can see the dart inbetween the 1.5 on this pic, so I did not aim where it landed, I saw where it hit so I'm not measuring dart skip.

I took three shots:

1. 31.5yd = 94.5 feet
2. 29.4yd = 88.2 feet
3. 30.7yd = 92.1 feet

I was very pleased with this mod and the arrows look like it was made for it.

Thanks for reading and any comments, questions, concerns? Any criticism is appreciated!
