    Magstrike modding - Quick little post about a mistake I made

    Post  Winterstrike on Thu Jul 01, 2010 2:59 pm

    Many of you will probably be modding your new magstrikes like I just did. I pretty much followed the instructions on this...

    http://modworks.blogspot.com/2009/08/nerf-magstrike-mod-enhanced-air.html

    and I can vouch for it. I punched out my air restrictors and filed down the broken air restrictor bits instead and I used my dremel in the air tank bit a bit more to give room for the air bladder to expand. Now on to the big thing that made this mod take 1 hr rather than 20 minutes for me.

    Normally, when I finish modding, I try to test-fire the unit before I put in all the screws, just to make sure I don't screw up somewhere along the way, then I have to undo all the screws again if I did. I did the same thing with my RF20 when I was modding it. YOU CANNOT DO THIS WITH EITHER GUN. Don't be a lazy ass, and instead put in every single screw before you test fire it. The internals, like the RF20, need to be packed in tight before everything works.

    Learn from my mistakes please.

    Oh, the rf20 wasn't broken. It's fine, you just can't be lazy and have to put in all the screws before you fire it.

    Oh ok I was just saying I tried shooting it before it was all shelled up and the plunger tube thingo flew off, it was crazy.
    Anyway hope everyone has pictures to post of there magstrikes, but if its just been modded on the internals than there is not much point posting a picture of a normal yellow magstrike lol.

    You have to pry it off with a flat head screw driver or something similar, it took me about 2 minutes to get mine off but it took pois0n ages lol I think he ended up dremeling a bit out to get under it lol.

    I learn't a simple trick for getting off the pump cap. Get a flat head screw driver and put it at the top of the pump head. Use the front part of the gun (the orange part where you can put your hand) to leaver out the pump cap, it should be nice and clean.

    My pump cap was glued on, I had to do AJ's trick where he heats up a hobby knife and slices through the plastic. A dremel works fine too.

    Yeah, my pump cap was glued on really well. I ended up having to dremel it off. But yeah, hot water and a flathead screwdriver will usually do the trick.

    All of you have opened up a Magstrike?

    Do any of you have thoughts on how to add an air compressor now that there is not tubing? I am guessing in the pump tube.

    Yeah, you could pull out the plunger tube, and glue in a tire valve or something. If you used hot glue, you could even "undo" the mod, to revert to manual pumping, but I'm not sure if hot glue would be able to hold up the strain.
