So I've recently purchased a Double Shot and modified it as shown on one of the topics over here on the Haven. I forget who wrote the mod, but it's the 1/2" CPVC inside 1/2" thinwall PVC modification.
After completing this mod, I've noticed that my darts don't fire every time. I think that there might be a seal issue between the the front and back of the gun when they close together. I cut my PVC to the best length I could; not too big so that the gun doesn't close, but not so short that there is a visible gap between the front and back of the gun. I also put a single later of duct tape over the PVC, hoping that the fraction of an inch that the duct tape adds will provide for a better seal (I made slits in the tape where it covers the barrels, to allow for dart-insertion.)
Have any of you had problems similar to this? I am wondering if there is a seal issue, or perhaps the darts I am using are just too thick for the CPVC (I cut the suction cups off of the darts that came with the gun and hot glued a weight to the front of them.)
Thanks in advance to any insight you guys have on this troubling issue.
I just created an internet radio station! Right now I'm broadcasting live, and you can listen if you have Winamp (It's free, www.winamp.com ).
To listen: 1. Launch Winamp 2. Go to www.shoutcast.com 3. In the search box on the left, type in SHOCKERradio 4. Click "tune in" and follow the directions here http://www.shoutcast.../listener.phtml 5. ENJOY!
In the future, I may broadcast Nerf radio, but I don't know.
Also, someone using Dell Musicmatch can listen!
Oh and if you'd like to make your own station, follow directions on shoutcast.com It's not too hard if you know what you're doing with computers.
On NerfHQ, we were talking about how nice it would be if the Open::Nerf project was ever finished. Well, I decided to make an Open::Nerf forum myself, in hopes of advancing our developments in Nerf technology. That's what the site if for: Nerf modding and homemades.
I suggest that if you want to work together (emphasis on together) on a project, check out that site. If not, then stick around here, because this site has everything else a Nerfer needs.
