Epoxy Putty

        Hi guys, sorry for the third wordy post in a row. You are probably wondering what happened to my nitemav. I have had all of the parts completely ready for the nitemav for about a month now. The only reason why it isn't finished yet is because I dont have epoxy putty. I went to Lowes expecting to buy some epoxy putty but they didn't have any. That made me disappointed because I thought that I would finally have a nitemav. It will be finished the day I get some epoxy putty though.
        Well, you probably stopped reading this post by now. If you haven't, thank you. If I get some epoxy putty I will also be making some sort of snap. This snap will probably be a snap pistol or snap bow. I have all of the parts for either of these except the putty (the ramp). Well, I guess that is it for the worlds most boring post. I should be getting some kind of mods up soon.

My Update: December 29, 2012

Hey Guys I just wanted to tell you that I have been working on a project that will be released when I finish painting it. The weather right now is not good for painting so I will wait till it gets a little warmer. I don't want to give to much away but the paint job will be Black and Gold with White accents. Another project I had in mind was maybe converting a Bow and Mallow marshmallow bow into a nerf gun. Give me your feedback on the bow I want to see if i should try it or not. Happy New Year everyone I will be looking to make some posts in my freetime in 2013.

Aabow

I just made my aabow and it is really awesome. It isn't quite finished though because I still need it to be painted. I ended up switching it from a CPVC tee at the end to a PVC tee that I screwed in. Other than that, the picture are the same.
These are just some different views of it.
It is shooting really well now. I can't test the ranges yet because there is snow outside. I can only use slugs in an rscb for now because they get suction loaded in the plunger tube. I will fix that later but I am very happy with this bow.

Very Simple Stryfe Mod

This is a very simple mod for your Nerf Stryfe. It is so you don't have to wait 1 second between each dart before you fire.
Take your Stryfe and place it down with the screw ports up of course. 
After removing the screws, take it apart and the internals should look like this. You are going to want to remove the piece that iss circled in the picture above.
The piece looks like this.
Once you remove the piece, The internals should look like this. With this mod your Stryfe will now jam less and it will have a better rate of fire.

[UPDATE] Almost Finished Max D 2000



Hi guys, this is definitely my favorite mod yet. As you know, I modified my Super Soaker to shoot
Nerf darts. I replaced the pump with a ball pump so It takes a lot less pumps. I replaced the original pump handle with CPVC and I had to alter the shell a bit because of that. I am mainly using CPVC barrels now instead of PVC.
I used Duct Tape on it so I can still take it apart if I want to.
Here is a front view.
Here it is with a speed loader. I also tried it with an RSCB clip and it works very well. With this speedloader I got 130 feet flat with a streamline. This is no lie. Eight pumps got 130'! I am very happy about this mod and it was definitely the most difficult one I have done. I hope you like it. Unfortunately, I was not able to replicate those ranges with a streamline again. I could hit that range almost every time with an elite dart though. I used a longer barrel and it works much better too.

Max D 2000 Nerf Conversion

I just got around to doing some quick modding and I decided to convert my Max D 2000 into a Nerf gun. It was a pretty easy mod and I just attached some pvc to it. I don't have the ranges yet but i'm guessing that with 20 pumps it gets about 50 feet, 30 pumps 75 feet, and 50 pumps 100+ feet. It takes that many pumps because the pump is about the size of the secret strike pump. That isn't good. I will upgrade the pump or make a homemade pump later. If you have any pump super soaker you should definitely do this. (Note: The barrel is slightly angled but not as much as it looks.)

Update

This is just an update for the coming month or two. I wont be able to do as many mods or make many posts coming up because I have a lot of papers and projects due before winter break. Also, my nitemav is almost finished but I wont be getting epoxy putty until after Christmas. I might post an update picture on it but I don't want to finish it until I get the putty. Hot glue just doesn't work well when it comes to stuff like that. I am also running very low on supplies and I wont be getting any more until after Christmas. After my break is over I will go back to school and will have one week before finals and midterms. I will have about a one week window where I will probably have a lot of posts, but other than that this blog might be pretty slow for a while. I am very sorry for all of the boring posts recently but I have nothing else to post.

Xploders

Hi, I was just watching TV and I saw a commercial for Xploders. I am not a fan of Xploders for many reasons. In this commercial Xploders blasters are being compared to Nerf blasters. You can see the video here. I really don't think that Xploders should be compared with Nerf because Xploders are horrible:
-No triggers
-It takes a long time to prepare the ammunition
-No reusable ammunition
-Frequently jams
-Not accurate
-Many, many other things.
What are your opinions on this commercial?

Nerf News

Hi guy, quick one here. Nerf just announced the rough cut and diatron on their Facebook page. I think that Nerf should start trying to announce their blasters before releasing them.

Nitemav Update

Hi guys, I guess what I said was "Dracs" way of making a Nitemav is the best way. It is too hard to get the catch to work in only the maverick shell. I'm going to try to get it to work a little bit longer but if not I will be putting some of the Nitefinder shell on it. The only problem with this is that the Nitefinder shell is painted black. It will look really weird but it should work. I will probably give the Nitemav to Aukman to paint after it is finished. Well, that is it and it should be finished by Wednesday.

My Magstrike

Hi, I had my magstrike opened up and it was just on the floor so I decided to mod it before I make my nitemav. It can shoot 2 full magstrike clips as you can see in the video below. It takes 40 pumps and doesn't let any more air go in after 40. Enjoy!

Nitemav on the way!

Hi guys, I just wanted to make a post about how i'm going to make a nitemav. I decided this because I have 4 mavericks and the screw ports broke off on one of my nitefinders. I admit that when I first got into modding I watched Drac. He was the main person I found. Later, I found much better modders and I als found NerfHaven. My point is that no one should ever try Drac's nitemav. It is really hard and there are much easier ways to do it without cutting your maverick. I know that you shouldn't do it because Aukman tried it once. Well that's it.
