    Brass Breach Stampede

    Post  oznerfnerd on Fri Jun 28, 2013 12:16 pm

    Hi All,

    Haven't played with toys for ages, but have recently got an excellent new man cave and some new equipment.

    Check this out.



    Still fine tuning the design so this isn't a write up, but it's almost good to go.

    I started off trying to do my own Xplorer style breach, which I did but didn't like because it wasn't airtight and there wasn't enough gain for the effort.

    Basically it's a kit where you only have to cut 2 tubes to length, and cut the bolt (but not as easy as it sounds).

    The rest screws in to existing fixing points.

    The kit will have all sorts of bits, including a pusher/bolt alignment tool and a jig to drill your clips (to convert them to stefans) perfectly.

    This thing hammers, but is very dart particular.

    It's been splitting some types, but one type in particular works well.

    Hope you like it.

    Cheers,

    Hey Oz nerfnerd

    Dose your Brass Breach Stampede take full size darts?

    As the darts they Hire out at the Melbourne nerf wars are full size ones?

    Hi Cameron,

    Unfortunately, it will only feed 30-40mm stefans.

    I have tried for 3 months to get it to fit standards, and same as SGNerf I came to the conclusion it just cant be done with an airtight breach.

    Not only do they need to be stefans, they need to be bloody perfect and only certain types will work.

    This is a very specialized breach and will not be for everyone, I realize.

    I guess if I was pitching it to a certain crowd, it would be the hardcore tinkerer or the HVZ crowd.

    To be honest it's just for fun (unless you're being shot with it) and I'm just showing off my handiwork.

    I do, however have a very nice Stampede spring kit coming up (very soon) with ALL the bits, even a plug set so you can split the 2 halves while you're working on it.

    That would be more suited to what you're doing (if you're stuck with standard length darts), perfect with 4 trustfires at 16.8v's.

    I haven't done anything for ages, and just want to do a couple of specials for the hell of it.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers,

    Holy crap that looks amazing!

    You say it's dart particular - I'm assuming that the 17/32 is the pusher and the 9/16 is the barrel? Have you experimented with a 1/2" pusher, and a 9/16 barrel with a 17/32 stub nested a little way in, with beveled edges on the 9/16 to allow for better feeding?

    Any thoughts on price?

    I'm actually trying to stay away from lots of pieces of brass that need to be cut/beveled/etc.

    The idea is that you cut 2 pieces of tube, cut the old pusher off, glue her up and blast away.

    I'm just playing with an insert for the 17/32" pusher that may help feeding.

    As for price...

    Not sure yet, but it takes about 6 hours on my very expensive printer at its very finest settings.

    It won't be cheap but it won't be stupid.

    I also have one coming for the Elite AT, that's looking really good as well (and easier).

    As long as its comparable to Xplorer's kit but with better shipping

    Would it make sense then to print a majority of the beveling and then just insert brass at strategic seal stages? A funnel that has a recess for the 9/16, that smoothly interfaces with the lip of the brass? An interfacing sloped pusher would then feed pretty nice

    It'll be the same or better price, and better shipping.

    As for the design, I'll keep my cards to my chest at the moment.

    The brass is not included, but is based around 9/16" and 17/32".

    The individual can decide on his/her darts, tightening rings, etc.

    My design as it stands will work well with 12-13v's, but I want it to feed more reliably at faster ROF's.

    I've made the changes I think are required, I'm just waiting on brass.

    Awesome, looking forward to getting my hands on a kit

    Understandable about the design, just thought I'd suggest some things in the hope that you might be able to troubleshoot better feeding options.

    Keep us posted!
