Topics I've Started

Intense Indoors Recon.

13 February 2009 - 06:28 PM

This is my recon for which I use downstairs, or as a last resort for in the summer when outdoors. Out of 1 clip of six plus 1 dart, the lowest range was 37 and the highest was 41. Ranges are using converted streamlines.


Now, onto the overview.

Let's start with a photo, shall we?

Basically, the things that let the clip work broke. So I singled it with a CRAYOLA barrel. These mods don't use much other than tape, and a keyring, glue, and a pen. However, it does require extensive use of a dremel or some other sort of cutting/sanding tools.

Basically, there were 4 things that I did to this gun to make it what it is.
- I singled it. Simple enough. I intend to do the pen mod to it when I next open it
- Made the clip remain useable
- Made it cock it similar to a nightfinder without removing the ability to cock it with the cocking slide.
- Drilled a hole in the stock to accomodate the new cocking method.
The first one was easy enough. I just took my crayola, dremeled it out, hot glued it to the original barrel. To finish it, I wrapped a layer of etape around the crayola, and a small part of the original barrel. When I next take it apart, Iím pen-modding it. Hereís a picture.

Next thing on the list is the clip. When the pieces to make the clip broke, I was sorely disappointed. So I thought up a way to make it useable on a singled recon. I basically dremeled out some grooves to match the large pieces of the clip. Now it can only come out a millimeter at most. However, it was difficult to get this to work right, because I had to keep testing the fit, so as to not be overzealous in my widening of the reciever pieces. Some pictures.

Now to explain how I made it cock differently. First, I unscrewed the back of the cocking rod. Then, I got a larger screw. Make sure it sticks out at least 2-3mm. Get your keyring and wrap the tape in a way so it wonít fall off. Wrap the tape around the rod where the screw goes through. When youíre done with that, just put the screw in and tighten it up. Make sure the screw goes all the way in. It should look something like this when done.

Now all you have to do is drill a hole in the stock with a Hole Saw Bit ( I believe thatís what itís called.)

It looks like this when the gun is cocked. Goes right into the stock.

Thanks for looking. If I get enough requests, I guess I will try to make an actual write-up. Though no promises. I opened and closed this thing enough times to last me a lifetime.
Questions? Comments? Flames?

P.S. Sorry for the pictures. They were taken with my webcam.

EDIT>> Sorry, boltsled didn't break. Other pieces did.

Crayola Barrel Coupler

04 April 2008 - 05:32 PM

Earlier today, I decided it was time I put something up for the NERF community to see, so here it is.


You will need:
a marker and the cap
a screwdriver
a knife or a dremel
tape


Okay, so you start with your marker.

Posted Image

Take off the cap and save it for later. You may want to mark the end that attaches to the marker.

Posted Image

Make your crayola barrel with the exception of cutting off the front piece.

Posted Image

Make sure it's smooth on the inside, you may want to grind out a bit with a knife or a dremel.

Posted Image

See the tip of the cap... That has to go.

Posted Image

Take ether a screwdriver of a knife to it and make it nice and smooth on the inside. DO NOT GET RID OF THE PART THAT ATTACHES TO THE MARKER!

Posted Image

Posted Image

Take you tape and wrap it around the part of the marker that will be at the front of the barrel. Be sure to leave a couple millimeters's or 1cm. NOTE>>> I didn't, and it makes a very messy barrel tip. Insert the Crayola CAP into the barrel. Now you can clip in any Crayola barrel with the tip on it.

Please don't post while I put up some pictures of before and after the Crayola coupler was added.

Sorry for the larger pictures.

Here's before the coupler inserted.

And here's a few after pictures, some with me displaying the barrel capabilities.

It can use darts.

But, it can still use arrows, too.

Thanks for reading and I hop you all like it.

Grinding?

04 April 2008 - 03:23 PM

Well, I recently bought a BBB at my Canadian Tire and did a basic AR removal/drilling, and my creation, I think ,the Crayola Coupler. I intend to make a write-up for the Crayola Coupler unless anyone else has heard of or done it before. I have noticed that, even after the relatively small number of times that I have fired my gun, the "pull back mechanism" (what it's called on the box) is being wore down. I have searched and searched for reinforcements but can't find any. Is this ecause it is only happening to me? Thanks in advance.

Crayola Barrels

03 April 2008 - 09:49 AM

I have no other barrel material available, so I have turned to crayola markers. I use the washable kind so does that matter, because I am only getting about half an inch of usable barrel. I can't find any writeups using the search function and I'm really troubled. How do you guys get your crayola's so long? In the pictures they look like a whole marker. Do you take them or what?
