#359196 Armageddon XVIII: SoCal's Largest NIC War (6/24/17) NOW RECAPPING

Posted by mysterio on 13 April 2017 - 01:09 AM

My internship ended up being in LA, so put me down as attending. 


I was just wondering if you do or could do prizes/awards for some of the rounds or certain events or even just for fun type stuff like craziest maneuvers or whatever. I am curious because I would like to contribute in that regard ( at least for this war lol ) since I've acquired a lot of blasters of all varieties. And hey a free blaster is a free blaster lol. If so plz let me know and I'll start getting a few things together.


I say whoever gets the most unfortunate dart welt should get something.

#356795 [CA] K.o.R.n.E.d. - SoCal Nerf War (11/25/16)

Garfield Park
815 Mission Street,
South Pasadena, California 91030
Friday, November 25th
All darts, excluding 'super domes' are allowed. Regarding blaster bans - basically, don't be a dick. If it's too powerful, we'll ask you to stop using it, and if you have any concerns, feel free to PM me. Singled 4Bs are not allowed unless they have a hopper and OPRV. Titans must have an absolver. Homemade airguns are allowed if they aren't stupidly powerful. It is not recommended that anyone under 13 shows up, and if you are under 13 and you show up without a parent that stays the whole time, you'll be kindly asked to leave.
You are allowed to block anything 5/8" in diameter and under with your blaster. Large ammo (arrows, balls) counts as a shield breaker.
Glue domes are alright as long as they're not crazy. Send a pic if you think that applies

#348747 The C.L.E.A.R

To begin, a picture of the final blaster.


It uses no glue, screws, or adhesive, and all parts can be bought from a hardware store for under 20 dollars, with the exception of tools.
2.75" of draw, but at whatever spring strength you want. I can put a fully compressed Hillman/Everbilt #69 spring in it, without any issues.
Ranges are about the same as any other primary out there, ESLT, SNAP, +bow, etc.
Easiest thing I've ever built, which includes building a slingshot.

Tools needed:
Pipe cutter

1 3/4 in. x 3/4 in. x 1/2 in. PVC Sch. 40 S x S x S Reducing Tee
1 1/4 in. x 3/8 in. x 1/2 in. Bronze Flange Bearing
1 4.625 in. x 1.25 in. x 0.12 in. Zinc Compression Spring [Or other suitable compression spring]
2 1-3/8 in. x 1-1/8 in. x 1/8 in. Buna Rubber O-Ring
1 1/2 in. CPVC CTS 90-Degree Slip x Slip Elbow
1 3/4 in. Schedule 40 PVC Plug
1 60:25 Caulk Gun [Or other ~3 dollar caulk gun. I've found these at Big Lots, so lots of options here]
1 1-1/4 in. x 2 ft. PVC Sch. 40 Pipe
1 1/2 in. x 2 ft. PVC Sch. 40 Pipe
1 1/2 in. x 260 in. PTFE White Thread-Seal Tape
1 3/4 in. x 1/2 in. Schedule 40 PVC Reducer Bushing
1 1/2 in. x 2 ft. White PEX Pipe

Total price:

Cut 7.25" of 1-1/4" PVC off of the 2' stick


Cut off the ends of the 3/4"x3/4"x1/2" reducing tee so there is 1" of pipe from the center line to the 3/4" ends



Cut the smaller end off of the 3/4 in. x 1/2 in. Reducer Bushing, so that it is only .75" long

Place an o-ring on the bushing, and push the bushing into one end of the tee. Take off the o-ring, and wrap the gap with teflon tape, 7 wraps should suffice.


Cut off a .5" ring of 1/2" PVC, and place it inside the other end of the bushing. Take .5" of 1/2" PEX, and push it inside of the 1/2" PVC.

Wrap the flange bearing in teflon tape, or in my case, surgical tubing, and push that inside of the PEX

Take this nested piping and push it into the other end of the tee



Take one of the rings of 3/4" PVC coupling from the tee, and place it on the 3/4" PVC plug


Place an o-ring on the 3/4" PVC plug, and wrap teflon tape in front of it to keep it in place


Place the spring inside the 1-1/4" PVC

Place the plunger head in front of the spring, with the larger side facing the spring, inside of the 1-1/4" PVC

Place the tee inside of the 1-1/4" PVC, facing the plunger head

Unscrew the nut from the caulk gun, and remove the metal washer. Pull the rod out of the caulk gun, without squeezing the handle


Place the plunger assembly into the caulk gun, and replace the metal rod.

Thread the nut back onto the rod, using your fingers, or if necessary, pliers.


Wrap the 1/2" CPVC elbow with teflon tape, then push into the 1/2" hole of the tee



Cut a 1' section of PEX, and place it into the end of the elbow



Some extra assembly photos
