    Does anyone know where i can get clear PVC pipe, i found some clear acrylic on ebay but my guess is that it will crack over time.

    It should be available as it's used in the food industry but i cant seem to find anywhere to buy it

    Could someone please explain the concept of Vacuum loading? I assume it has something to do with a perfect seal and air being drawn into the plunger tube, but what exactly is it, and what effects does it have on the gun?

    it is the effect of darts being sucked down the barrel, and sometimes into the plunger tube.

    Just an addition, vacuum loading can be good or bad, depending on the blaster it occurs in. As a general rule, the dart should never enter the plunger tube, though. On reverse plundered blasters, it is not good, as it will lead to the dart being inside the plunger and getting squished, while at the same time jamming and rendering the said blaster useless and unable to prime. This will only happen in modded blasters. Sometimes it is employed deliberately on blaster that are single shot with a good air seal to stop barrel dead space when a dart is loaded form the front. If you do this, there must be a dart stop to stop the dart entering the plunger. It is still far better to use a breach or and RSCB, Hopper or Chopper clip to remedy the problem entirely.

    Thank you both. We need a thanks button on this forum so I don't have to post off-topic with my thanks.

    Just a quick question, when someones says that they used a 'skirt seal' in their mod/homemade, what is it that they are referring to and where can they be purchased?

    I did too until I watched a video by TheBradl3s on Youtube explaining the assembly of the AusBow. He said that he used a bath plug, and if you used a skirt seal it would probably be better.

    It's basically a rubber seal shaped like a skirt.

    They are purchased from mcmaster-carr, I don't know the part number, did a quick search on NH and couldn't find it however there are some pictures of it in this thread: http://nerfhaven.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=20435

    A bathplug will do a similar job for us.

    How does vegetable oil go as a temporary lube? How long until it buggers the O-ring, or fails as lube?

    I've been lubing everything but my plunger with canola, it works great. If you have upgraded your oring to an industrial neoprene one, ie you bought a real one to replace the shit that hasbrO use, you shouldn't have an issue. Seals great and helps speed your plunger up.

    I used peanut oil in my mav before I had an alternative, and yes it made the stock oring swell, but god damn it shot well for the first week, lol.

    I don't have a clue to as when the vegetable oil will start to behave negatively; but let it be known that it will eventually oxidise and become rancid, leading to becoming a gummy substance.

    How do you remove the locks on the stampede? do you just cut it off then attach the two wires together or what do you do?

    I suggest you not to remove the locks (if you are referring the the pressure switches) for safety reasons. You may get a dart jam there one day and you put your finger down to get the dart out and accidentally pull the trigger because you weren't being precautious. Let's just say. You're finger won't be very happy.

    If you want to use it in a semi auto fashion you will need a valve between the bladder and the tank. If you want to use the bladder as an air tank expansion you don't need anything.

    Best catch spring for a Nitefinder.

    Post  AbyssHD on Thu Mar 01, 2012 7:03 am

    What is the best catch spring for a nitefinder?, that can be bought at either Mitre 10 or Bunnings.

    I use the c-580 available from Bunnings. its about $5 for a pack of 3, each spring can be cut into 3, so you will have enough to do 9 nitefinders.

    The spring is slightly too narrow so you will have to shave a little bit off the catch spring post thing, I do this with a dremel.

    I don't think a hack-saw would do the very best of that job. I'd advise using a small file or some sandpaper, these are both really cheap tools, and I think best suit the job.

    Cutting

    Post  AbyssHD on Sun Mar 04, 2012 5:23 am

    The best option for cutting a c-580?
    (Without a cutting bit on a rotary tool. And a hacksaw is to fiddly.)


    Thanks...
