    $38 stampedes

    Post  NORTHENGHOST on Tue Apr 10, 2012 4:47 am

    I was trawling the Internet this morning and happened to come across this,
    Really cheap Stampede

    Is this the same for the actual in-store prices?

    I would not recommenda deploy to ANYONE! I hate mine, it jams alot, fires pretty crappy and very inconsisantly, even after AR Removal and spring mod and some safetys removed, its just a flimsy horrible gun such a shame.

    Nice find mate. I already got a stampede but a $38 Vulcan looks enticing. Are they worth it through?

    Depends on what you want from the blaster. Vulcan's are not very practical in wars or battles (due to they belt fed design), but the Vulcan has a really rambo feel to it. This is largely up to personal preference though.

    $30 longshots!? Bricks were shat.

    So, are they instore or just online?

    Also I was at Myers today (Melbourne) and they have bandoliers for $12.90
    plus Rayvens for about $15 off or so.

    Mmm, 2 new bandoliers.

    EDIT: Disregard the question about longshots. Just checked, online only and already sold out. Arses!

    Modded Recon
    Modded Longshot (w/ FG integration mod, awww yeah!)
    Modded Maverick
    2x Modded Longstrikes
    Standard Night Finder

    Not huge, I'm more of the kind of guy to buy small, but then spend the time modding the living daylights out of each gun.

    Spent the day today modding a Longshot for a friend's son and realised that I want at least one more of them.
    Now I'm just discovering that it's looking to be discontinued.
    Is that still an actual thing?
    I'll shell out $45 if it means I wont miss out on another LS

    $50?
    Found em in a store for $45 today.
    I seem to recall them going for about $70.
    Are prices dropping?

    Nah, don't use stefans. I'm working on modding streamlines instead.

    Oh ok. Just wondering because I am making stefans and selling them. Can you take a look at my thread and price my stefans? Because I'm not sure what to price them.

    Just so you know, KMart and other general stores will PRICE MATCH! I spoke to my mate who works at Kmart yesterday and he said they will happily match the $38 price! so tempting to get some more for the future.

    Not to flame but can you please not post that kind of stuff here. There is a link in your signature already, if people want to look at your sales thread they will, no need to shove it in everyone's faces.

    P.S. Your stefans don't warrant the amount they cost to ship. 20 cents a stefan is a bit steep for that quality.

    sorry about that...

    I agree, you seem to be constantly bumping and promoting your darts, You want a price, Streamlines are 100 darts for $20 so you should charge a max of $10 for 100 darts.

    Very true. I haven't been to any wars but I have done a few 4v4 with my mates. One them has a Vulcan and while it is quite good at the start, once it runs out of ammo it never gets used again in that round. Other than it's rambo feel, one of the main reason I been considering getting one is that I'm always seeing the $10 extra belt and darts sets for it Big W. Unlike the mythical standalone 18 round drums for the clip system blasters it just seems really easy to stock up on lots of spare belts.

    You all need to learn to set up your vulcans for wars!

    I use a vulcan for wars, belt length of 50 shots, with 2 ammo boxes attached together (one under the other bottom cut out of top box) i had to add a bolt with a bracket to hold the ammo box on when running. I have 14 (50 shot) belts which allows for a good days worth of ammo. Lastly i have upgraded the spring too, which makes my vulcan a formidable weapon too.

    So again i must say, learn to set up your vulcans and they will serve you well.

    I'm assuming that is your 70ft Vulcan I've been hearing about? What voltages do you usually run it at and have you had any problems with it combined with the increased spring strength? (e.g.: gears or anything else breaking or wearing down)

    I am running it on a SLA 12v 2.2Ah battery, and havent had any issues with breakages of gearing problems, it just keeps feeding fine.
