    Used in Mint Condition.

    Please use correct terminology.

    Shaun, no one(virtually) on these forums has a NIB xbow or SM5000.

    If you want to waste your money on these stupidly overpriced toys as some sort of investment, try eBay. They come up rarely.

    If you want to buy a gun to actually Nerf with, neither of those are really that good and obviously terrible bang-for-buck.

    Hey guys.

    Im debating to either intergrate a Titan Tank/Internals or BBUMB Tank/Internals into a Longstrike. Now I am purely going for Range/Velocity. IDC about RoF, which will be the best way to go?

    Definitely the Titan tank although it is substantially bigger and will have to protrude out the side of the gun.

    You'll really struggle putting a Titan tank in to a LStrk, as the shell is so skinny. Better option would be a umb tank. A lot smaller and cheaper. Yeh, you won't get phenomenal 70 metre ranges, but you will get a respectable ranged air blaster, that doesn't look like crap. My $0.02 anyway.

    So you've been unsuccessful at getting 200ft out of a plugged Titan tank, using 2ft barrel and custom-weighted darts? Strange, because a few other WA guys have done it...

    Not that my word means much here but yeah 200ft is not a problem from a plugged titan. 300ft is not a problem from a plugged titan. Anyways going back to the first question from Zeus, If you can find/afford a 4B its fits very very nicely in a Longstrike. Only requires maybe 20-30 minutes of work to have it sit nice and secure in the shell.

    If you do find one and want some help PM or email me and I'll get some pics for you.

    Fayt - that's a very interesting point about the 4B tank. Really wished I hadn't just sold my last LAHB... Is there enough room for it still to be clip-fed, or does the tank take up too much lineal shell?

    Cheers,

    Unfortunately to get it to fit nicely with minimal work you lose the clip function, however I have been throwing some plans together to be able to attach a Raider mag well on the side so you can still clip feed it.

    Other then that to keep the clip feed you would have to remove to stock pump from the tank and do a lot more dremeling. I'll see what I can do about some pictures for you guys.

    Somewhat unusual question, but whatever.
    Are there any differences between the new and old SM1500 tanks and pumps?
    By direct size comparison I think the new SM1500 pump is larger, but I don't have an old SM1500 to compare accurately with.

    By differences all I'm looking for are pump size differences and tank volumes.

    EDIT: Another question.
    Is there any tank difference between the SM1500 and AT2K?

    The 2K and SM1500 tanks are almost exactly the same. I believe the SM1500 has a wider air outlet which explains why an overhauled SM1500 out shoots most 2K's.

    I'm not sure about the pumps. You might want to look elsewhere (Nerf Modders Welcome FB page) as I doubt there many members here with both models.

    Quick questions about Longstrikes.
    Has anyone experience any bolt sled issues after upgrading the spring?
    My AT is using said spring but there have been no bad effects yet, but the situation might be different with the Longstrike's bolt action nature.

    Another question about Longstrike internals:
    Is there enough space to reinforce the boltsled with aluminium sheet (Longshot style)?
    If not, what alternatives are there to preventing boltsled warping?

    Best option is to come up with some kind of priming mechnism that pulls both sides of the bolt sled with equal force. Most problems here stem from the fact that you're only pulling one side, causing weird torqueing on the bolt sled.

    Question: I'm currently in the middle of doing a Vulcan mod (spring, voltage, etc etc) which is all going well...

    But one thing has been bugging me even when Vulcans are stock; Is there any way to fix / reduce the chance of darts not firing out of the belt?

    Currently for me, for every 25-dart belt I shoot around 2-6 darts won't budge. I have tested with and without the dart pegs in the belts, and used different kinds of darts - same problem. Plus the locations of where the darts stay in varies.

    I can understand if it's just in the Vulcan's nature and nothing can be done about it ... but I see so many other vids of Vulcan mods where they all seem to shoot quite reliably by comparison. Any and all help / suggestions appreciated

    @Zandor: I too have this same problem, i dont know what causes it, i just take it that its the nature of the beast. A few darts left still means you have virtually showered your target in foam.

    Hello

    I'm looking to do a bike pump replacement on a Titan and just wanted to confirm/ask for advice on a few things.

    From what I've found, a Summit Dual Action Pump will be sufficient, and these can be found at K-mart and Big W.
    A tubeless tire valve is recommended for connecting the replacement to the air line, which vinyl tubing is used for, correct?

    If you can give me any other information regarding this it would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    You can connect a tire valve, which is essentially a check valve with fittings so the pump can grip on to it to vinyl tubing. From memory, the titan uses 6mm with could be obtained from bunnings.
    Also depending on where you war, you might need to put in an opv.
    The pump could be placed, either in the back where the stock pump went, or you can join it to the titan where the hornet would connect up.

    Well it seems that the 16mm conduit I've bought for barreling is too tight on a 'perfect' stock dart. Are blue foam darts smaller in diameter? Did I pick up a tight batch as well?

    Define 'too tight'? You shouldn't be able to blow a stock dart through it.

    I thought it was meant to be a loose fit. I have to jam the dart into the barrel, and have difficulties even doing this.

    Sounds like 16mm conduit to me.

    The idea is that it's rather tight so as not to lose any air around the dart. Only works if you've got a decent amount of power behind it, but a good option if you do.

    Does anyone know how to put tightening rings in brass without using pipe cutters?
    I've been searching around but as far as I can tell the only non-pipe cutter tightening rings are for PETG, and I'm certain that a hairdryer isn't anywhere near hot enough to get the same effect with brass (ie heating it into an easily malleable state)

    Ordinarily a person in this situation would probably go out and buy a pipe cutter, but I'm not one for getting tools which are rarely used, and in any case if my BBLS functions fine I don't forsee any need for a pipe cutter in the near future.

    If you're wondering (and if it makes any difference) I'm trying to put tightening rings in my WIP BBLS's 9/16" barrel so I can use Streamlines and Elite darts, as well as Lite and Heavy Silis when they come back into sale.

    I haven't put tightening rings in to a bbls for over 12 months... but, honestly, $10 for a cheap set of pipe cutters isn't too bad really. The easiest way to cut conduit is with pipe cutters, and that's the most common material used to reinforce a buttstock on a bbls. So, straight away, you've got 2 uses for a set...
