I don't go to uni, I uses to go to tafe I just drive trucks at the moment, however my gf goes to uni. I was going to get a website up soonish and get some posters up at the uni and local tafes'.
And thanks I'm painting a longshot now I'm gonna try and make a 100ft monster C863 spring bolt sled reinforcement AR removal bit of dampening on the Pluger O-ring replacent (might experiment with doubles) push button pen trigger spring breach and barrel replacement. Hoping to get 100ft with the above setup, I'm feeling that standard darts won't go the distance I'm chasing or last very long and I might need to make some Stefans'.
Think I'm aiming too high?
No you're not aiming too high. That's perfectly fine. However I would like to point out that a C836spring in a Longshot is a horrible spring because it's not the full length of the plunger. Also the compression ratio to uncompression is very crappy (phuonguyen can explain this in details). All I can say is this... Let me make up the mis-communication by giving you some of my experience with a LongShot.
We compared two Longshots.
Longshot #1: C836spring + LS stock spring = MAX of 28metres
LongShot #2: NF overly stretched to the point that it won't go back to original size + LS stock spring = MAX of 26metres
As you can see if you're going to put a c836Spring into your LS, you will be putting unneccesary stress on your plunger head. If you want a very good spring PM "WinterStrike" for custom upgrade springs. He is able to squeeze out a maximum of 30metres with JUST one spring. One Spring meaning there will be less overall stress. Correct me if I'm wrong someone ><. $20 with postage... is the cost. Not sure if he has any left.
If you want to make your Longshot shoot even further and still utilise clips... Look here. I've done this to my LongShot#2 description and I managed to get a MAX of 28-30metres. Using stefans of course. With Winterstrike springs you will be looking at roughtly 35metres or so. Maybe more.http://modworks.blogspot.com/2010/03/nerf-longshot-brass-breech-mod-guide.html
Here's a tutorial on how to make the Brass Breech.
If you want a LongShot Reinforce boltsled tutorial. I have wrote one up and you can find it in the link below...http://www.oznerf.com/modifications-f1/write-up-longshot-boltsled-reinforcement-t2051.htm
If you want to spend about $70+ more. You can get a fully aluminium boltsled through one of the members under ChrisB. Look him up on the member list and PM for more info.
In regards for spreading Nerf. You should defs get your GF and yourself to start advertising HvZ or regular wars. Don't show them any modifications until it's all started. When people Nerf, they usually look up for guides on how to mod their blaster to shoot further anyway.
Hope that helps.
If you're making a site. inf0rm3r is currently building one with many systems which will make Nerfing much, much easier.
