    Hey,

    Welcome to OzNerf.

    AT's can be a pain to mod sometimes, use the search function, and you might find the answer to your problem.

    Cheers,

    thanks! glad to be here. I will use the search function. However my problem is stupidly specific and is one of those things that only seems to happen to me. I have started a thread about it here; my silly AT question

    I am a sculptor by trade but there are two kinds of sculptors - builders and carvers. I'm a carver. Building things confuses the hell out of me most of the time unless the instructions are foolproof and the guidance I get is ultra-specific. Well it seems that all of the existing tutorials on the internet aren't specific enough.

    Again, thanks for having me aboard. I look forward to learning from this community and eventually adding to it!

    We can't all be good at everything - I'm half-handy with mechanical, but cosmetics are where I lack quite a bit.

    I've just started an internals directory here:

    http://www.oznerf.com/t3124-internals-directory#53184

    I've uploaded internal pics of the AT - it might help you discover what has gone wrong. Alot of the time, issues with mods are just simply from everything not being re-installed correctly.

    Cheers,

    Thank you sir. In your middle pic of the AT, the taller magazine catch - the one that keeps the catch that touches the magazine itself from releasing when the gun is coked, well, its still in there. Every tutorial I've ever seen tells you to remove that thing. So I did that and now the mag won't stay in for love or money. It is possible that the spring that holds the catch that actually holds the mag in might not be in correctly and i will look at that, but the problem is almost a dealbreaker for this thing. If I am unable to fix this thing even with this board's input, I'm going to reassemble it and return it saying it was broken. Or get a new one and donate the old one to science.

    If you ever want input on cosmetics, I can help you. thank you for your input!

    I am actually from Massachusetts, USA. I had difficulty joining the other nerf forums out there and I really liked the vectorized picture of the nerf Maverick at the top of the main page too.

    My main non-nerf project right now is a prop ray gun to compete with Weta's famous line. Its literally in the drawing board stages right now. When I have a drawing I like, I will make it in Rhino (a CAD program) and then send that off to a prototyping studio. I'll make a preliminary crude one in cheap materials to test it out and then after alterations, I'll have at least one made in aluminum, brass and walnut. The target market is rich nerds on the internet or at scifi conventions. It's a huge departure for me since the rest of what I do is largely abstract ceramic scuplture, though I can do portrait busts too.

    You can view my college era work here:
    "My Art" set on my flickr page

    You can see the ray gun progress here:
    "ray gun ideas" set on flickr

    I don't have an ego about my work. I believe such a thing is bad for one's development. The first thing I learned in college was to divorce my ego from my work so I can grow. Sooooo what I'm saying is I encourage input. If you like something, tell me why. If you don't, definitely tell me why. And your input is especially important since we're all here because we love toy guns.

    Thank you for everything!

    oh btw, the ray gun is based on this mount for a leica camera:

    Now there is something that brings back memories and something that you dont see very often, the old stock mounted camera for wildlife photography. I have used these before, a very long time ago, but havent seen one for many years. Welcome to our home.

    Yes, this brings back fond memories as well. I'm positive I still have one in storage somewhere - time to go digging through boxes!!
