    32mm is the ID of the PVC, so 32mm PVC I guess?

    32mm bath plugs fit 32mm PVC and 40mm PVC. One of them is pressure rated or something. 32mm is more useful in the TS since the wall thickness is less than the 40mm.

    Oh, and the ID is not 32mm but closer to 36.

    Are you referring to a Triple Shot? If so excellent, i was planning on buying a couple tomorrow on my blaster hunting adventure.

    Is the TS capable of 100ft? I did some lite googling but didnt find any solid info on spring replacements. Has one one done a clipped TS?

    I believe he is referring to the triple shot, yes. Also, the TS is definitely capable of 100 feet with the right mods. I haven't personally seen any clipped TSs, although thats not to say it hasn't been attempted somewhere.

    I'm using lithium grease with my bath plugs but it leaves a red residue within the plunger tube. Good thing? Bad thing?

    Hmmmm. Damn. I thought lithium was good, maybe just o-rings. Then what's a suitable lube for plugs, don't have enough fix a tap at this point.

    Edit: I'm using this, it's yellow but multi-purpose. http://www.kincrome.com.au/web/catalogue/search/product_display.php?partnumber=K17101

    Multi purpose can and will swell natural rubber. I was using a food grade multipurpose grease that ended up doing horrible things to a few of my o'rings and a bath plug in a matter of days.

    No it will not fit over the plunger tube (too small).



    Top: Stock Raider Spring (one ring end was cut off it though)
    Bottom: Stock Nite Finder Spring

    Fix-a-tap. Best multipurpose lube I've used. I've had no issues with my bathplug, and its getting a great seal.

    What type of filler do people use on their modified blasters? I'm sure car bog will work but is there something easier/cheaper?

    Due to the large plunger tube size a LS or alpha trooper spring etc can be used. Potentially the triple shot spring can be used in conjunction of the stock spring. Ensure that the internals are reinforced and the catch spring is improved.

    Cheers,

    Hotglue and foam in one big mess in key areas. if more foam is used, a muffling effect can be had, more hotglue and a slight reinforcing effect.

    It does seem like good value if you are looking to upgrade a NF and don't have the parts on hand.
    Considering a 17/32 brass tube 1ft long (12 inches) can be priced around $8-9 from a hobby shop.

    And no sorry this is the first i have see the kit.

    It's made by Venom on NerfHaven, so you can bet it'll be of good quality. The spring isn't as good as our C-836 but it'll do pretty good. The best part is you get a catch spring and upgraded screw.
