    How many 'x' have you wrecked/destroyed throughout this hobby

    Post  evozn on Sun Mar 04, 2012 3:19 am

    Since I've started nerf I have had to get many items and I have broken a fair bit off them, so I was wondering how many tools, blasters you have broken since starting, by broken blasters I don't mean buying it and stripping it, I mean it breaking on you and you throw it in the parts bin.
    Me tho.
    4x hot glue guns
    1x rotary tool
    1x Shotblast
    1x Airzone crossbow
    1x NF

    EDIT: Post left over parts if you want, you might find a nice trade deal.

    Shotblast shell and pump
    Entire Airzone crossbow. I mainly knocked a pin that kept the bungee in place and it can't be re-attatched.

    My First Mod Project me and my Dad worked on was a Maverick, he took out the AR's, did a spring stretch, Barrel Mod, etc. When I flew back to QLD I did a black body spray with gold cocking handle, trigger and barrel, looked good until I overdid the paint and the gun barely worked, It's in pieces in my Nerf Parts Box because I broke it, another was my Alpha Trooper, tried to remove the AR's but when I put it back together the thing wouldn't fire more than 10 feet, wierd, still have the drum though.

    2*Hot glue guns (they were el cheapo and shorted out or something)
    2*Secret Strikes (they suck, both got air leaks after some time)
    1*Reflex (unsuccessful AR removal)
    1*Tek 3 (broke the turret after opening, cbf fixing so just stripped for parts)
    1*Kool Zums blaster (tried rebarreling but it still sucked, so killed it for parts)

    Luckily nothing big broken, but I did have a scare with my Recon when it was terrible (I managed to fix it).

    LOL I have broken one blaster in my nerfing career. Ironically it was the one I didn't open up (the magnum).

    Recon plunger tube... After using a really powerful spring. Hopefully it'll be the first and last breakage.

    Raider, Recon, Longshot, RapidFire, NiteFinder are the first ones that come to mind, but I'm sure there's many more.

    Honestly, I'd have to say I've destroyed somewhere around 15 blaster's - fortunately, none of them expensive. Haven't broken any tooling though.

    I have destroyed a couple of LShot parts, RP plunger tubes, and various other parts all in the search for obscenely high spring loads...

    Cheers,

    My brothers Recon plunger system... First mod fail
    One Longshot plunger system.... Didnt do maintenance properly, ruined it in following Nerf war due to incorrect internal placement
    An Alpha Trooper shell cracked open putting too much pressure on it on my modding desk...
    Two Hornets internals (semi intentional since they kinda sucked...pushed them too far without knowing wtf I was doing, both sprung a leak)
    Three Secret Strike AS1s
    One red Scout (priming bar fail)
    Five NF shells ruined including three of the internals
    Four Spectre shells ruined including two sets of internals
    Hand Cannon internals missing during house move
    One rotary cutting tool due to plastibond dust getting into the motor, setting and jamming it to death
    A few BuzzBee tiny tripleshot....things... All of the priming mechs broke
    A BBUMB butchered for a recent project which although may not count, it was stripped enough for me to consider it 'no longer a BBUMB, just a pile of plastic scrap'
    Sacrificed a Maverick that a friend gave me with a botched paint job to salvage a neighbors one
    Three Longshot Front guns failed to mod for improvement, ruined the internals

    ...and Im pretty sure there are plenty more nerf graves hiding in boxes in my new evil Nerf Modding shed of Doom :p... But they dont count since they were intentionally chopped up and stripped with success.... Not botched amd ruined like the above list :s

    I've screwed up one NF and 3 Mavs... And one hot glue gun. I think that's it. I really haven't failed much, although some guns are a bit ghetto.

    I must admit,

    I just totally wrecked a nicely modded and very reliable Stampede, while trying to make a full length dart sealed breach for it.

    Totally fingered, I'm afraid...

    CUT 'ER OPEN
    JUNK THE PARTS
    MOVE ON

    Hey mate it's funny you should say that, I have 3 Mavs and every single time I mod them, they break. The first one I painted black without sanding properly and I probably had the wrong sort of paint but it mucked ap all the externals/internals. I use it as a 'looks' gun now. The second i modded fairly basically, but that broke too. The third one - lets just say i haven't modded it much coz otherwise I won't have a maverick to play with. Anyway, I have also broken my Longstrike about twice, but fixed it each time.

    EDIT: I recently fixed the black mav that i painted...now it works. That other one thought, still butchered. It's internals went to feed the black one. And then i cut the shell into 2. For no reason.
