    Question about Vulcan belt capacity mod...

    Post  Jimeth on Sat Dec 29, 2012 1:08 pm

    I've been trawling google for a few hours for a solution to this and lack the bandwidth to do a youtube search, so bear with me if this is easily answered.

    From what i have seen it is a fairly simple task to join two belts together to form a 50-dart belt with a blank in the center joining them, but what of belts longer than this? Written instructions are rather vague on the specifics of joining a belt onto this 50-er, spouting things like "repeat this process for longer belts" , despite having no blank to work with on it.

    Diagram:

    B = Blank
    D = Dart Holder

    Normal Belt of 25 > BDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

    Modded Belt of 50 > DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDBDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

    This method also presents the problem of the first dart not being fired, as the vulcan feeds the belt in before firing (if fired properly. I'm sure somebody will wrestle the belt into the popped out AR to prove me wrong).

    Ideal Belt of 75+ > BDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD...

    So put simply, is there a way to join non-blank ends of belts together? Or are belts of more than 50 darts a myth?

    Here is the answer for your troubles:

    http://australiannerf.com/forum/index.php?topic=683.0

    It didn't take me that long to find it on Google...=)

    Another solution (if you can be bothered to sew) is:
    - Cut off the blanks on the belt (make sure that there is some excess fabric).
    - Overlap the 2 excess fabric pieces until it has the approximate length as the other fabric gaps on the belt.
    - Sew the overlapped fabric pieces together.

    Voilà! Your done! Now do the same to another belt and you have a 75 dart Vulcan belt!
    Hope this helped your troubles!

    Mate,

    I wouldn't bother getting rid of the blank, as it's the easiest way to join belts.

    If you're doing this, I'm tipping you're going to glue the clutch, up the volts, etc.

    You won't even hardly notice the one blank shot then (no jokes about shooting blanks please).
