    Yeah I had this problem with a Magstrike. Wasn't a big problem, just unscrewed the blaster, checked everything was in place and put it back together.

    I have that exact issue. I don't know how to fix it permanently but there's a simple solution which doesn't even require much effort - hold it sideways or upside down. Alternatively, on the first shot flick the MS up so that the clip is pulled upwards by inertia (I think).

    Pull it apart, clean it, then put it back together. My standard way of fixing stuff but didn't work

    Seams to work, gravity working for not against and all. Bit of a pain though

    My new mags worked for a few times, but now none of them work without holding the MS sideways or upside down, or flicking the mag up. I'm thinking it's a unit issue, not a global MS issue as SG Nerf's appear to be fine.

    That could be your culprit. While i am deeply intrigued by the workings of magstrikes, I'm not hugely into modding so I'll leave it to someone with more experience to offer a solution.

    Yes it is very good and effective for suppressing fire.

    It's actually very intimidating, being spammed with 5 darts per second, with a 20m+ shooting stampede.

    Grab a NF fist up then head over to the next war and look at what they're using.

    The best way to figure out what guns suits you is by using them.

    Generally though stampedes are pretty good.

    Yeah, I didn't want the extended clips so I sold them and used the cash to make the Stampede awesome. Not very hard to modify, so a pretty good choice for a war for someone getting into Nerf. There are "Kits" which include everything you need to mod a stampede. Not too expensive either.

    With out seeing your magstrike I cant be 100%, But from what you have said above it sounds like this problem. See images below.

    When I got this magstrike it was sold as not working. It was displaying the issue you describe e.g it only firing the first dart and then failing to advance the clip. Upon opening it I noticed that the piston was not mounted in the correct place.

    In this pic, the piston is not sitting in the right place.



    After moving it back into the correct place it fired just like it was intended. Cheep dart tag magstrike FTW.



    Hope that fixes your troubled magstrike.

    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'?

    Extremely late reply. You may drop your shield to reload or to go a fast flag run. But "setting" up the shield as cover for others to use without you holding it would be a no go and called fail h4x0r by many.

    Okay, this is a really specific question about the Nerf Titan as it pertains to the Unity system. I'm doing a modification that, if I can pull it, would separate off two parts of the Titan, as shown in the picture below.

    http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif

    If I can, I'd like to cut through the vertical wire in the handle in order to remove the hornet attachment site and relocate it. Obviously I don't expect the Hornet to fire with the secondary trigger anymore, as I'm removing that too.

    Can I saw through the vertical wire without sacrificing function to the Titan? Would I have to seal it off or something? Is it impossible?

    Thanks in advance!

    Sadavi5; Going by you pictures and what you've written there, then you can cut off the vertical piece safely.

    That 'wire' is actually tubing from the pump to the hornet, to allow the use of the titan's pump to charge up the six hornet tanks. As long as you plug up that piping and divert the airflow to the titan tank, you shouldn't find any difficulties in pumping the titan up.
    If you don't plug the tubing you might find that you'll be pumping the titan much more than you would, as the air will be diverted.

    What are the specifications of your barrel?

    Now I don't own an RSCB, but from wide reading double feed happens when the barrel is a bit too loose. It should just fit the tip of a dart and not let it slide all the way in.

    The nearest thing I own to an RSCB is an inline clip, with 15mm conduit going into 15mm PVC. I used a bit of tape to get a tight fit on the conduit to the PVC, then sanded the inside edges of the conduit so that the darts could slide in a bit easier to the dart when I'm shaking it down.

    okay thanks yeah im pretty sure my barrel is too loose darts can slide out of it if i shake the blaster. do you think nesting a small piece (say 2 inches) of tighter brass in the back of the barrel as a sort of tightening ring?

    I'd say yes - but that's not conclusive. The best way to find out is to try it out yourself. But the barrel should just be tight enough for the dart to "close off" the barrel hole when you shake it down.

    In my opinion, the only good thing about a STOCK stampede is the clips. Although they can tend to be bulky and ugly, they have a lot of ammo in them, great for longshots.

    Very much agreed, although not so much the part about the Longshots. My (stock) Stampede sucks - I'd prefer an AT anyday. I like using the 18 clips in my AT - they just feel right somehow.

    Plenty of modding potential with the Stampede, just depends on your style of play. For around $50, you can get all the parts required to do a full upgrade, capable of hitting 65 feet or more, at flat angle with ROF of 5 rounds per second.

    ie: 9 or 13kg spring, beefier return spring, improved o-ring, plunger head buffer pad, 4 x li-ion rechargeable batteries, charger, 9v snap wiring, 4 x AA battery holder. You can perform all these mods with just a soldering iron and screw-driver's.

    This is the set-up I use, and there are other alternatives (ie: SLA battery etc). Also, you could probably find the parts a bit cheaper, but I doubt you could do it for under $40. Either way, it's a pretty good investment, as the batt's can be used in Swarmfire/barricade's as well.

    With the upcoming sale price of $49, it's probably not a bad addition to your arsenal.

    Does barrel length play a role in either springer or air guns ? It's an area I'm not that familiar in, so I'm hoping someone else's expertise will help me out.

    Yes, both. If the barrel is too short the dart will not gain enogh power before leaving the barrel and lower you ranges. But if its too long friction will slow the dart before it leaves the barrel and lower your ranges.

    Really you need to test different length barrels and see what works best.

    If I'm wrong I'm sure someone will correct me.
