    Lefty has painted a few 18 shot clips with great results, I've seen them in many wars and they still look great.

    I've heard he uses car touch up paint? I'm not sure though, you might want to PM him.

    I painted one of my 6 clips to kill some time the other night.
    No prep, cold night and Export brand machinery grey. Just used very light coats at 30 minute intervals. Had no bubbling or peeling so far

    Hey Dietzie - I've tried that, but not in the cold weather (same brand and colour too.. haha). Maybe the lower temperature might help.

    It didn't bubble or peel, but the bond wasn't really effective, and the paint scratched off too easily, even with 5 coats + 2 coats of clear.

    Cheers,

    If its scratching off where the clip rubs the blaster it may be just that the paint is too thick. I only used enough to JUST cover the orange and no clear.

    Pretty much scratching off everywhere, and I didn't paint the clip where it inserts in to the magwell. It's not a major issue, one of my customer's just wanted his clips painted is all. I've still got a couple of ideas to try, so hopefully one of them will work.

    Yeah couldn't you just stick a piece of plastic or whatever to the thing that's meant to go back and push that lock down? I was contemplating it because it seems that as long as you can push that triangular lock down, the gun will still work fine.

    Yes that would work. Anything that will compensate for the padding. Plastic, hot glue or epoxy putty would work

    I hate to be a ass but why do you need to repeat what I just said?

    It was 2 minutes later as well not like a 'post at same time' moment.

    It happens a lot, if you have something else to add, go ahead but if your just repeating what someone's said don't bother.

    Sorry about that but I just find it really annoying when people try to increase their post count by posting useless stuff.

    Personally I use reinforced one for everything because they don't shatter making them safer to use however normal ones will do.

    When cutting Petg use a heated knife not a dremel, you'll get a cleaner cut.

    You can get a specific wheel for plastic, but I think it's only available in ezi-lock. You're be much better off using pipe cutters for conduit if you have a pair big enough, and a hacksaw for the petg.

    @Unknown, be careful buddy, the reinforced ones will fly apart same as the standard ones, they just take a bit more punishment before it happens. Don't be lulled in to a false sense of security mate.

    hi everyone, i searched but i dont think my words were big enough so sorry if this has been discussed earlier..

    i was just wondering if air powered (pump) guns are banned in brisbane wars, and if so why? because ive noticed its been said a bit here and there, perhaps not by queenslanders, but i do see people saying on the forums that they are in fact banned. just wanted to clear things up because im in the process of modding a couple.

    thanks

    From my knowledge, I know that air powered guns which are plugged are banned from all wars. But I'm not quite sure whether they're banned in QLD (if they are, I'm not too sure.)

    As a war host (Or soon to be in my case) our biggest concern is bystanders, safety and cops.

    We don't want people getting nailed by plugged titans just for safety reasons, if you know what I mean.

    Air guns are not banned only plugged titans are 4B's.

    Depending on the host rules may differ but this is generally how it's run.

    okay so it is more so the power of the gun not the type? so would it be fair to bring my gun to a war and show people that it is not overpowered and dangerous and maybe be able to use it?

    It's just plugged guns as they have the potential power to seriously hurt someone when used irresponsibly.

    You really don't need to prove your gun's not overpowered but just in case, what gun are you referring too?

    its not actually a gun its the drain cleaner from bunnings, it is quite powerful but i reckon with an RSCB or an inline clip it would be toned down and useful enough for war use.

    That sounds quite interesting, definitely bring it along sometime.

    I don't know about the other organisers but I'd let you use it as long as you were very careful with the 10m rule.

    I'm hosting a war this Sunday, I don't know how far it is from you but you might want to have a look here.

    Is a Triple shot spring combined with a stock longshot spring a good combo for a longshot?
    Yes I have reinforced the boltsled.

    Yes. By my guestimation this will be similar in power to a V2 spring.

    I highly doubt that as the stock spring is 2.6kg, tripleshot spring is arround 4-5kg and the V2 is 14Kg.
    But it isn't too bad for a spring combo.

    Yeah, because the over pressure valve is in the pump. If you put a different pump on it, the over pressure valve is gone.

    It is possible to do a pump replacement without loosing the over pressure valve. Simply use a section of the original pump body with the new pump attached through the side and the cut off end plugged with the original pump head

    I suggest doing a pump relocation as in you use the stock pump but cut it and connect it by a tube and place it in another area on your gun.
