    Oh wow, that's cheap. I kind of expected something more expensive, but if it's that cheap I'll probably get a set then.
    Thanks clunk!

    A quick search shows no results, so I'll ask here.

    Ultrafire or Trustfire? Which one and why? (for a Stampede)

    Recommended spring/kit to use? (I know this depends on what I want from my blaster, but I'm just wondering what set-ups others have.)

    Thanks

    Quality wise, there’s very little difference. I prefer the Trustfires though as they are marginally bigger than a standard AA which makes their use in convertors easier. Conversely, the Ultrafires are marginally smaller which makes their use in convertors harder.

    For springs I prefer the BT kit as it’s easier to use. Plenty of people swear by the SS spring though; it’s a good amount cheaper but comes with less other things.

    An SSSpring is a TS/LS spec spring, too large to fit in a 'pede, however, a Servulus spring works perfectly, I had one in mine before I sold it.

    I run mine constantly at 35 - 40 psi. Getting them above that pressure with a hand-pump isn't easy.

    I asked Phuong the same question a while ago, and he said his compressor-fed Titan had handled close to 100 psi. I'd err on the side of caution with that though...

    And, not nit-picking, but you only plug the pump, not the tank. Plugging overrides the OPRV, and doesn't make any difference to max psi of the tank.

    Cheers,

    Yeah I realized my mistake after noticing that I don't need to plug the pump if I'm doing a replacement *facepalm* I just got confused is all. I've come to discover though that my tank does leak air and am unsure of whether this is intentional or not, and how to fix it. I haven't added much detail but I was wondering if this is common and there was a specific spot that it happened and a way to fix it.

    Where would you find a triple shot or hand cannon in the south east queensland area or online? I'm thinking of upgrading from my Alpha trooper or putting in an OMW mod kit. 
    ETA: Not looking for one right now, just where to get them when i get birthday money in a few weeks.
    Preferably online.

    Hi Dchil15

    The triple shot are normally found in toys r us, and the hand cannon I think can be found in Toyworld,

    At the moment it people are having trouble find triple shots down here in Melbourne it posable that they have stop making them or Toys r us have stop stocking them.

    Hey all, I'm looking to mod my Centurion (gasp! D:) but I'm going to explore singling it - thus doing away with the MEGA 6-dart magazine and all the glorious jamming that brings - plus hopefully redesigning the breech a bit so that reduces the number of dart chewing sacrifices to the large red monster...

    Just wondering if anyone has found any suitable barrel material and sizes* that would fit the new MEGA darts?

    sizes* = not sure yet whether I'll keep the spring plunger tube system, or smack an air tank of some sorts into it...

    Tried going around my local Bunnings and Mitre 10 stores with a MEGA dart but couldn't find anything remotely close to fit... may need to source materials online :\

    Hey Zandor, if you are removing the MEGA dart clip, why don't you remove the MEGA darts completely and just mod it to shoot standard size darts? It would make finding ammo a lot easier, and also I think with all the air from the Centurion's massive plunger might end up a bit much for standard MEGA darts to be half accurate. That's just my opinion, I've never actually used a Centurion. If you want to keep the MEGA darts, I'm not really sure what barrel you could use, maybe K&S make a brass that would fit them? Good luck!

    Hey Sanchez :-)

    I have considered going down the path of ditching the MEGA darts, Xplorer style, but I came to the conclusion that my Longshot already takes care of that.

    I really like the concept of using larger darts, may even explore making custom MEGA darts for better performance and durability.

    But from using my Centurions I found its the whole dart loading system that is letting me down the most. I like the Centurion and have an awesome cosmetic mod planned for it...

    ... All I need is barrel materials that will fit the bloomin' darts ;_;

    I guess that's fair enough. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the darts are around 25mm? All I can think of in that size would be K&S brass (not sure if they go that big), conduit (have you checked an electrical store?), 20mm pvc pressure pipe (25mm ID) and maybe 25mm aluminium from bunnings?

    http://www.bunnings.com.au/metalmate-rcr-25-x-1mm-1m-aluminium-round-tube_p1067784 - That's the aluminium tube, probably be too tight, but I guess its worth a try.

    The MEGA's are 20mm diameter. Most of the conduit / metal / PVC pipes I found were either far too big or just a bit too *twist* tight fit for MEGA's.

    That being said, the stores I checked didn't have much of a range; a lot of what they normally carry was "out of stock / on order". One place I haven't tried yet is a hobby shop up the road from my work that sells brass and other metal tubes - I'll check them out.

    I guess bottom line is keep trying different shops that sell tubes and shove MEGA's into every 'barrel' until I find one that's a good fit. Thanks for the help though Sanchez; you've given me a couple of ideas to work from for now
