    Um, it really depends on the condition, if there are any modifications, who your buyer is. There isn't really a definitive answer to that question, but the Stampede would go for more than the Longstrike.

    Its to do with the internals. The longstrike uses a reverse plunger system, which does not put out the same amount of air that a direct plunger can.

    If you don't mod, however, there is no problem with it, unless you get one of the dodgy ones.

    Prices depend on the seller. Stampedes without clips, etc normally go for around $30ish, no clue about longstrikes.

    Any recommendations on brass barrel lubricants? Searching has found plenty on stuff for the plunger and o-ring safe lubes but haven't found much for the barrel. I've a can of Inox spray, is it safe?

    Wait, do you want to lube the inside of the brass barrel? As far as I know, brass barrels only need to be polished to be effective. Lubing the inside would only get it onto your darts, which wouldn't yield any benefit.

    Yep. This allows for reduced friction and keeps your darts clean.

    The maverick, pictures would help a lot. There is a small slot where the mouth of the plunger tube sits. That's the small cylinder-like thing. Stampede is worth $25 and each extended clip is worth around $14-16

    I'm a new owner of a (second hand) Barricade, paradoxically enough.

    Anyway - is it a common thing for it to experience some sort of jamming issues when you click the trigger a bit too fast? I'm just wondering whether I need to fix it up a bit more or if that's just me being a bit too trigger happy.

    FFP Shield

    Post  Pronga on Tue Jun 14, 2011 8:54 am

    Two part question:

    I'm in the process of designing and building a FFP/FFL shield, so was wondering what, if any, restrictions there are?

    The plan so far is to make it aprox. my hight and width, but when deployed twice as wide (to hide 2 people) I also am considering putting a window(?) made of fly-wire or perspex in it so I can see where I'm running.

    Would this be within the rules? Or would that count as "perforations"?

    Is having "deployed" acceptable, so effectively mobile cover?

    This generally happens if your dart happens to be just a few millimetres short (old or slight manufacturing variation).

    If you pull the trigger hard and fast, there's a bit of momentum to kick the dart into the flywheels and launched.
    Or that the pusher rod is fully extended to do so.
    I've noticed that if I just pull the trigger slowly into position, there's just maybe a millimeter or so that could go further forward.

    However, if you tap the trigger too fast, the slightly short dart may not be able to connect with the flywheels, so it stays halfway out the cylinder and resulting in a jam.

    Happens to all of them.

    If you don't pull the trigger all the way, it will jam.

    The idea of the shield is to shield you, and isn't something that would be deployed but carried with you at all times. People can cover behind you but you "the tank" must be holding the shield.

    There is no size limit on the shield so making it as tall and as wide as yourself is fine, and even a bit wider if you like.

    I wouldn't suggest using flyscreen as a sharpie with great aim would out a hole right through it. polycarb would be the best thing to use for the window.

    So to confirm, The shield is effectively part of me, hence holding it all the time.

    Is that a firm rule? (As in I can't put it down to reload) Or a 'spirit of the game, don't be a douche, guideline'?

    3rd Alpha Trooper that I have screwed up. Hopefully I can learn something this time..

    So, my problem is that I can NOT prime the AT back. It's hitting a lock or some crap.

    It was firing great before (AR out, Re-lubed) and i opened it up to reinforced and pad it.

    I've checked that its aligned properly, and by my view, it is..

    Help is VERY MUCH appreciated, Thanks!

    I had the same problem. Its the lock above the magwell lock, with the washer and screw. Resetting the internals fixed mine quite nicely.

    Post  Echoes on Tue Jun 14, 2011 10:07 am

    I had a similar problem.

    There are two silver screw/washerscrew things. The left-most one is holding a lock in place. Notice how that lock gets in the way of your boltsled. What's happening is that one of the nubs on your plunger tube isn't reaching that lock to push it down so that your boltsled can move.

    In short: Your padding is too thick. Squish it down or remove it alltogether.

    Edit: An alternative fix is to manually push your Plungertube down after your shots until that problem goes away. This would require you to remove/cut off part of the black plungertube cover. You would only have to do this a couple of times before the padding gets squashed down enough.

    Edit edit: It also looks like you've tried to preload your spring. I personally add more tape so that it becomes another surface for the spring to push against. If you've done it right (or at least my way), the spring is actually compressed a bit before you close the blaster up. Up to you what you do about this though...

    As Echoes has pointed out, if your padding is thin enough then the plunger tube will be further forward, pushing that lock down so you can prime it. Note that it's the same lock that prevents you from pulling the handle back after you've already primed it.

    With the AT the padding will affect plunger travel to trip the locks to allow re-priming. I just built up the space with hotglue and have had no trouble since

    For a stock only HvZ event, is the longstrike a decent primary?

    My full loadout is longstrike, raider for when things get hairy, and barricade as backup.

    IMO, it isn't too bad for stock but you will have to make a choice between the longstrike and the raider and you can make the barricade a sidearm. IMO i'd choose the raider because of slam fire.

    If you think about it - that law's put in place to stop counterfeiting, not modifying nerf guns.

    Littering is technically illegal - I suppose we should all go to jail and get fines. I've been fined for parking on a spot that wasn't allowed to be parked on for another 30 minutes, yet I've driven past that place a few times now where people have been parking earlier than I did, and I don't see ticket stubs on their windshield wipers.

    Anyway Xoenz, remove the lock with the black screw and make sure the bar connecting the trigger with the "bolt sled" thing is placed like so in this photo (I'll just link you - http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs943.snc4/73651_1660424717836_1453710405_1654357_432482_n.jpg)

    I had this constant problem with my AT where yeah it wouldn't work at all after I modded it, turns out I wasn't completely meticulous with the arrangement of the bits and pieces

    It's probably best you don't carry so much. Your best weapons against zombies are your legs, for running away or dodging them :P. The more gear you carry, the more awkward it'll be to move (especially a longstrike). Honestly your best bet is to just go with the Raider and the Barricade. Every situation is going to get hairy if the zombies are organised enough

    For HvZ, unless you are really quick and control your shots, I'd go Raider over a longstrike. Don't weigh yourself down with more than one primary unless you are tanking. Definitely keep the barricade as a sidearm though, but keep it switched off (for obvious reasons).

    Whoa,

    Thanks allot to everyone who helped me!

    Problem has been fixed, i just removed the padding. I left the 5c coin on, to act as a reinforcement, but i think it's weight is slowing the plunger down. (Less range)

    I have added 1-2cm wide worth of teflon tape to compress the spring for more range, but its still fallen 4-5m short of its original ranges, any suggestions?

    Whoa indeed

    Uhh well you're probably going to want to seal the air release hole and improve the O-ring seal.

    How much tape did you stick on the tube? If you didn't change it from the pictures you posted, you might want to take the spring off, add more tape so it builds up a tad higher (but not so much that it doesn't catch) and then put the spring back on.

    If you do it correctly, your spring would be pushing against a wall of tape instead of the plastic "rim" of the plunger tube. At the moment it looks like the tape is just fouling up the spring's compression rather than helping it.

    Like Echoes said, the e-tape needs to increase the pre-load on the spring, not the actually diameter of the plunger tube. Also, you may want to consider removing the 5c coin, and replacing it with a similar sized washer. You need to focus on reinforcing the outside of the plunger tube end, more so than the middle. Also, the washer allows you to add more epoxy.



    Barricade's jam when you pull the trigger too fast. There's been some good explanations as to why, so I'll leave it at that. With the flywheel activation mod I've done to both of mine, I still pull the trigger slowly, and the pause between shots allows the flywheels to increase up to full rpm again.

    In a sense I will be tanking. There's going to be 3 of us sticking together. One of them is going to be our scout, cause he's actually in shape, armed with an alpha trooper and a maverick. The other is going to be our ammo bitch, reloading out empty clips for us and scavenging bullets when possible. We might be giving him my unity (titan, hornet, and scout) or just a maverick and the scout.

    Has anyone successfully painted n-strike clips before? I've tried a few methods, only to fail miserably. Yet, I got a Raider drum from Singapore, which was painted perfectly. Unfortunately, I can't contact the previous owner.

    I've tried sanding, washing etc, and have used vinyl dye, acrylic and enamel primer on separate occasions, but to no avail...

    Cheers,
