    I think this has been addressed a number of times. If you remove the o-ring from the blaster, and either measure it or take it to somewhere that sells o-rings (hardware, plumbing etc) and compare it, I'm sure you'll work out a replacement.

    Plus, you'll have the added benefit of actually working out something for yourself.

    Cheers,

    Thanks for the help, just figured out one that fits.

    What does increasing the seal on an air blaster do? Would it just be the same ie just adding teflon tape?

    The "seal" on an air blaster is the turret to valve/outlet. Having a good seal enables more of the potential air to get behind the dart, therefore giving more power/range.

    This is only aplicable to turreted and breeched air blasters, a singled non breeched blaster would not have this issue.

    Like gooni said about air blaster seals, it's all about directing as much of the air as possible behind the dart, without any being wasted.

    Not usually a common problem, but you can have an air leak "per se" with a singled air blaster. For example, if you had nested PETG in 20mm conduit, the air releasing from the coupler may travel up the gap between the inside wall of the conduit, and the outside wall of the PETG. To combat this, you genrally use e-tape to secure the PETG inside the conduit, and I also tend to seal the small gap with hot glue or a similar adhesive.

    It could be that your o-ring is too beg and causes way too much friction to allow the plunger to travel fast. A solution to this problem is to use lube to cause less friction or remove the o-ring altogether and get a new one.

    Clunk is correct in that trail and error s the best way to go but I'll give you some advice.

    A good air seal is too much for the stock spring, slap a C-836 in there and you'll see a huge increase.

    A little lube never hurts either.

    Absolutely not, with a C-836, padding is your best friend.

    Why would you remove it?

    You know LostBoy, your lack of initiative to approach your mod yourself through empirical testing and searching was really starting to bug me. I was about to teach you a thing or two about using the search fuction. However, I stumbled problem with our current search engine which makes me think that we have been leading the herd of sheep into brick walls all along.

    I typed in the search bar "C-836" with the quote "No topics or posts met your search criteria". Is there something wrong and retarded with our search bar?

    Go ahead and tell me if you had any problems with our search function.

    Hey Silent, I've found that you need to have the exact phrase/title of the thread typed in the search box. Which pretty much defeats the purpose...

    Perhaps there's a minimum length for the search function to work? E.g. I searched for "Nitefinder mod" and it came up with a stack of threads, but searching for just "mod" gave me nothing.

    Searching for "recon" gives me stuff, so I'd expect that it's taking "C-836" as two separate terms, the first being "C" and the second being "836". With both of those being 3 letters or less, it gave back nothing.

    Search does work.. but not the one on the left.. that has never worked.. you gotta click the search button on the top of the page and then go to advanced search and then make sure that "Search for any terms or use query as entered" is selected. and THEN type in your search query and you shall find it.

    Here is a list of results for C-836's

    I suppose I should note at this point that there are two searches in the "Advanced Search" page, one using Google (which Brad suggested) with the button titled "Search Google", or the one built into the forum titled "Search" down at the bottom of the same page under the search options. Using the latter will return no hits if you search for "C-836". Typing in a keyword and then just hitting enter will use the latter.

    I think the Google custom search template can be modified or simply removed.

    Having the retarded search function there is just going to confuse the beginners, and subsequently annoying the veterans.

    16mm conduit. But be careful since some of them aren't perfect fits, i.e. you have to twist the darts to fit them, so not exactly the best method of reloading darts.

    I put 20mm on mine and use whistlers, cause I'm a safe mofo.

    EDIT:

    Oh right.. I had a question.

    Has anyone else experienced foam "fracturing" after being shot from a air pump blaster? I'm assuming it's from too much pressure.. but just thought I'd ask just to be sure

    Too many factors, you'll have to experiment.

    On mine I have a home made plunger head, extended draw, LS, stock and recon spring. With this set-up I use a 12" Petg barrel.

    From that you should be able to estimate a good length for yours.

    Since the conduit comes in cheap long lengths, IMO the best thing to do is get 50cm on each barrel and cut off a couple centimetres each time and use trial and error untill you reach the best range.
