    Longstrike malfunction... Empty Longstrike malfunction...

    Post  spectre Tue Oct 11, 2011 10:29 am

    I noted that the Longstrike had been left in the ready position (cocked) since last used a little over a week ago, it cycled fine but the darts just fell out of the barrel, I guess leaving Nerf's cocked isn't exactly healthy for them but you'd think 1 week wouldn't matter too much

    On disassembly I discovered that the barrel was blocked and no air was able to pass at all I suspect the air restrictor to be the issue, do AR's block up often? is this a design flaw?


    Just wondering...

    Leaving a gun cocked is generally not a good idea. It would cause strain on the catch over time. Though a stock gun probably wouldn't matter.

    No idea about the blockage, what is even blocking it? I can't imagine anything that would block it like that. Either way rip out the ARs if you get a chance I guess.

    With the darts falling out part, it could be something to do with the dart tooth...

    Exactly the part I was referring to... I thought the dart tooth thingy was part of the AR (agreed it must go)

    It looks to be okay, I mean it doesn't look like it's effected the uncompressed length at all

    The dart tooth is a very important part of the clip system. I am pretty sure if you remove it, the dart feed from the clip into the breach will not preform properly.

    Exactly, if you remove the dart tooth, the darts will fall out as you said...

    Thanks for your response


    Most of the AR removal tutorials I've seen for clip system weapons include the removal of the AR & dart tooth (or is it dart peg?), an example of which is the LS I picked up the other day which works even better now with AR & dart tooth/peg removed (otherwise stock internals)



    Sorry if my poor understanding of Nerf terminology has caused any confusion

    Your thinking about dart peg. C-S guns wont function well at all without a dart tooth. But you remove the dart tooth when brass breeching an LS.

    To be honest, I dont have much of an idea of how a brass breech works on a LS.

    Yeah I guess I was, the peg adjacent to the AR not the plastic pins the move in and out of the barrel during a firing cycle...


    FWIW I was able to confirm that the AR was indeed jammed this was rectified by tapping a screw driver on the pins of the AR, ultimately I decided WTH and completely gutted the barrel... now I can move towards solid stefans (after upgrading/reinforcing further)
