    Certainly is, just takes a little messing around. Best to try it and see, man.

    Magstrikes suck ass, the pump takes about four million to fill anything. I don't really give a crap about them, no offense.

    So has there been any Aussie modders that have used a PVC Wye for their hopper?

    Out of curiosity, I did a bit of googling and found that there are Australian sites that sell wye, but not at 15mm. And I'm not too sure about the American measurements.

    I've done a similar search too, I'm guessing that because of the unavailability of the 15mm, even if it was used and fitted onto a blaster, it might not function as you would intend it. Unless of course you opt to use different darts or something.

    Hoppers?
    You're going to have to make your own wyes.
    I'm not aware of any ready straight off the shelf wyes that will do the job right.

    Misfiring Stampede

    Post  redcricket077 on Sat Jun 18, 2011 4:23 am

    Hey I've modded my stampede but it's misfiring. AR removed, new spring. Running on 4 lithium batteries. I thought pics would be unnecessary because it looks exactly like the internals of any other stampede. The darts always get jammed. What can I try?

    Yeh, I wasn't saying you couldn't do a pump replacement without keeping an opv, you could even buy your own and install it, if you were that way inclined. Was more so just letting people know, save them turning up to a war, and not being able to use their pride and joy blaster.

    @Redcricket - there's a pretty big thread at NerfSG covering Stampede modded issues. I've done 4, and only had a problem with the catch being around the wrong way, never had darts jammed, so I'm not much use to you.. haha

    Has anyone had any troubles with the BT Nite Finder V2 spring? Especially catching? Firstly, it's nearly impossible to prime (I hope it's not just because I'm weak), and then I can feel it catch, but it doesn't stay catched, and it pushes forward again.

    Just sounds like you need to upgrade the catch spring.

    Catch spring is upgraded, came with the BT spring. (Sorry should have mentioned that )

    As Vavoom said, it's probably just the catch spring needing an upgrade. If not then you'll probably need to get yourself a new catch, as the plastic might have been broken away by the force, but that's very unlikely.

    EDIT: Sorry, just read above. I'm not sure then.

    I would guess it's something to do with the little notch in the plunger rod then. Just gotta wait for a more informed response I suppose, I don't have a BT NF spring but I do have a C-386 spring inside one of my NFs and I haven't had any problems with it premature firing, though my friend has when he borrowed it in our recent war.

    my question:
    From your experiences, what's the optimum length for the PETG barrels of small sized air blasters such as an Air Tech 2000?

    @SydneyNerfer - it's probably because you're weak or not doing the 'proper' technique. I generally pull the priming handle with one hand, and pushing the blaster forward with my other hand so there's two opposite forces helping me prime my blaster.

    I'm probably going to try out the v2 nitefinder in the stampede and see what happens lol.

    @2120 - I hear 20cm-25cm is optimal for an AT2K. Although you always want the barrel to be at least 1.5x longer than the dart (for PETG) for it to be efficient.

    Maybe the catch spring has slipped slightly as well? I had that problem with the longshot catch spring that wasn't completely straight because there were no plastic guide things. I remedied it with a bit of duct tape stuck doubled over so that the spring had something to "grip" onto.

    I'd start with 30, 25 and 20cm barrels, and test them out for maximum range/accuracy. As long as you've got the spare petg, it should be fairly simple, and give you really good test data.

    Thanks clunk and LB - I tried it out.. 23cm PETG barrels, and my main concern, darts ripping up keeps occurring and that's with 3 pumps. So a bit confused and disappointed at the same time.

    Hey mate,

    It could be the way you're making darts. Stefans? Snap cap darts? If you're using silicone tips, it's probably the glue. I've had a bunch of darts come apart, actually a dozen or more, just the tip fires, which is pretty dangerous, lol. If you're making stefans, try using a low temp glue gun and squeezing some glue down the hole in your foam, instead of just a drizzle across the hole. That way, there's more for the tip to hold onto. Same idea with snap caps.

    @2120 - are you referring to the darts splitting up the length of the tube?

    I've had this happen with high-powered air tanks before - predominantly back-pressure hornet tanks.

    Can't tell you how to fix it/what the cause is, apart from too much air pressure. Someone on here will have a better explanation though.

    Hmm.. alright well actually I bought them pre-made from informer. But actually it was yesterday only yesterday that I first encountered the problem of only the snap caps shooting and not the dart. Though off the top of my head this issue of splitting up and snap caps falling off has not happened to my silicone tips.

    I think he means the Plunger tube. It could be that your catch is not positioned correctly and therefore isn't locking onto the PT. Check your catch and try again.

    Also check the alignment of the PT - it'll only catch in a certain way.

    To be a bit more accurate, if you're using the PETG Informer sells, it has an ID of 0.528" or 13.41 mm. 9/16" brass has an ID of 17/32", or 13.49 mm.

    Petg seems to have a more snug fit for blue foam..

    @2120 - I think it's something to do with small volume, and higher air pressure. I've had minimal incidents with my Titan (nearly all were due to old darts/poor dart-making), yet the smaller hornet tanks, and even my shotblast at one stage, we're tearing up the darts, and sometimes the tips would come off as well.

    Not sure how you can fix it mate, other than decreasing the psi.

    Yellow Magstrike issue

    Post  Pronga on Tue Jun 21, 2011 11:37 am

    I've been doing some googling but can't seem to find anyone with the same issue.

    Short version is:
    When I fire my Magstrike, only one dart fires out and the mag doesn't rise out any higher. Just sits there going Clack Clack Clack Clack Clack. If I pull the clip up to the second notch thing it works for the rest of the clip. Worked fine until recently, nothing changed that I know of...

    Any thoughts?
