In Topic: Buzz Bee Big Blast 3-D Printed 8-Shot Turret

+1 on the caution for THF, I use it daily at work and without PPE and handling the fumes alone will fuck you up hardcore.

I may be looking at it wrong, but does it use the opposite barrel as the indexing/locking point? If so that's pretty rad since I've always hated the gear/clutch that regular turrets use(especially the maverick). The painted rearloading slot is slick, really blends in well. 
 


In Topic: Homemade Titan Rockets- How would YOU go about them?

IIRC, people have used pool noodle and pipe insulation with craft foam fins in the past. I think Draconis (or maybe someone else?) made some pretty sweet titan rocket alternatives as well.


In Topic: Town and PD sanctioning nerf wars, etc.

If you are on private property that isn't yours and you don't have explicit permission to be on it, don't expect anything good to happen.

If there's a park office, ask if having a nerf war is ok. It really helps if you show to officials that its pretty harmless, family friendly game. If they say no, then find another place. If you aren't able to find some sort of park official, look up their regulations. 

 

Leave your realistic looking blasters at home, they might look cool, but its really not worth the potential for being mistaken as a real firearm.  If a police officer comes, put your blaster on the ground, and keep your hands away from your pockets. They don't know you're having a harmless game with toys, and probably received a call saying there are people running around with guns. Just be courteous and respectful, and explain the game.   If they tell you to leave, ask them where a more appropriate place would be. 
 


In Topic: What to do about Broken Images. Also, Fuck Imageshack

 I emailed imageshack about all of my old pictures from write ups way back from 2008-2011 and they told me they were gone forever, is it possible that those images might still be cached somewhere?
I'd love to help if that's even slightly possible. 


In Topic: 18 Dart Magazine Spring

22 September 2015 - 08:57 PM

Hello! I'm brand new to this wonderful world of Nerf and I just finished modding my first Stryfe to take out all of he locks and upgrade the junk wire. At first, all was well, but I noticed after a short time that my gun was jamming... a lot. It seems that the springs in the 18 dart N-Strike Elite magazines are a known issue and I seem to have some really bad ones. Even just a few hours loaded and they're not springing back to lift the next dart into place. I was using fresh darts and they had been loaded maybe an hour or two in advance of the game. Most of my jamming started in the early afternoon/evening when they had been loaded for about 6-8 hours.

My question is in two parts:

1. Is there a way to modify this spring to be more "springy" to stop this from happening again?

or

2. Is there a better brand of knock-off magazines that doesn't have this issue? I've been looking at the Taobao or Blasterparts banana magazines. Is one of these more reliable? I don't really want to run stock Nerf 12's, but if that's the best answer - let me know.

Thank you!


Since you can typically squeeze 19-20 darts in an 18 round mag, try moving the bottom of the spring up with a small spacer to add some pre-compression.
