    G'day my name is josh, I'm a bakery assistant by day and evil genius when I am home. I love Nerf, but hate it when the ranges are small. I don't usually play in wars due to me being in TAS where wars aren't easy to find. I do NOT own a dremel so if you want to have a go at my rough cuts save it, I use a bent hacksaw a pipe cutter a pair of pliers and two screw drivers and a drill to do my mods, so without further ado here is the creature.

    My latest mod/ first mod post on the forum Dscf1410


    The creature has a modified bbumb valve and homemade air tank, there is a 15mm coupler in the front so I can use 5 different barrels, one for original missiles, one for my 2 foot rscb with ball valve to eliminate dead space (if you are careful and a bit slower you wont chop darts) it uses a small brass barrel for stock streamlines and the barrel you see has brass in it which I use for my weighted darts and one to fire hand cannon slugs. questions? pm and if this is a crap post please tell me and I'll try to improve


    Front on pic just for fun by the way the random balls are glow in the dark beads, And the scope you see is homemade from $1 kids binoculars from Kmart.

    And my next project if I get around to it, Is turning a Jam blaster into a bull pup shotgun, That is after I finish modding 3 other guns first lol

    You really shouldn't go out in public with that. Black paintjobs aren't ever advisable. Looks mean though.

    Oh and a ball valve doesn't reduce dead space in an rscb. An rscb will always have deadspace unless you always keep darts in there and don't fire it, hehe. You should try use breeches or speedloaders if you like ranges - there's no such thing as an rscb keeping 100ft every shot. I think someone there's did that on here, and I call BS on whoever said it

    And you'd be better off taking your own advice about fixing your own post quality, props to you for acknowledging that.

    the ball valve is just behind the t join so the clip does not come into dead space play and as i said i don't normally attend wars but thanks for constructive criticism and how is the post? is it reasonable?

    Wow, that must be a really short clip - how many darts can it fit ?

    Just remember to capitalise letters and it should be good.

    Here's my problem with ball valves. The 15mm PVC variants, the hole is just a tad too tight for bullets to drop without friction. You gotta poke a tiny finger or a stick to make sure the last one doesn't get chopped. Any bigger (20mm or 25mm) it becomes too cumbersome and weight and size IMO

    The blaster itself looks amazing I must say. Shame it's all black.

    Post  joshredder Fri Oct 28, 2011 9:27 am

    The rscb clip was 2 ft long but because I couldn't be bothered with it, I have chopped it for parts, it used a 15mm ball valve and due to the size of the clip the darts weight would push one through reasonably well, the only problem I had with it was when I went tilt it back, there was no dart weight to bring the last dart back into the clip, so you had to jiggle it or fire 2 rounds out at once.
    since this experiment, I have learned that bigger is not always better, and also if you just take the clip off (keeping the ball valve, t-join, barrel and elbow join on) you have a rear loading single shot that can be put on to anything with a 15mm coupler.

    Looks good. It would be cool if you had a step by step process on how to make one. The pictures should be nice and big detailing each step on how to construct the blaster. One picture of the mod isn't going to 'assist' a person who may interested in doing the same modification because this blaster looks very ergo!

    If you're planning to just post one picture, we have a 'post your pictures thread' on the top of the General Nerf Section =).

    If you're planning to attend wars (seems like the tassie community is getting slowly bigger), I would recommend painting the blaster in a brighter colours. Most of the people here have told you that though, so yeah =).

    That's my two cents for your posts. Also, welcome to the forums!

    Picture of the ugly inside, By the way thats aquarium hosing from Kmart works reasonable and for $4 with a one way valve its pretty sweet, btw hot glue guns are evil, it melts the tubing if you use the gun at the hottest temperature so lesson learnt.

    Try to keep your posts in one reply rather than double replying. It just makes it's cleaner and makes the forums less cluttered =).

    Looks like you've expanded the tank too. Is that what you did?

    My latest mod/ first mod post on the forum Empty pvc air tank

    Post  joshredder Fri Oct 28, 2011 3:25 pm

    Sorry about the double reply, I was trying to work out how to use the forum, I think I'm getting there
    And yes the tank is expanded, the entire PVC apparatus you see is my tank, the sad part is the hosing/tank were completely air tight, But due to hot glue melting my hosing, I had to use the stupid white connector, its not completely air tight, but in order to get my darts to fly straight at 12 pumps, I have to weight them with 3 steel washers and hot glue in the rubber tips, she punches through cardboard boxes like a hot knife through butter

    Bunnings have a cheap Dremel "knock-off" around $40.00 (less on sale), I've had one for years done many a DIY project, PC case OR Nerf mod...

    Yeah whilst trying to dodge those modified darts...

    Nice work on your first mod!

    Next time you do something like this be sure to take a heap of pics so we can copy it hehe.

    You have probably worked it out by now but you can press the Edit button on your posts to go back to them and add more things/fix them up.

    Oh and if you do want to use this at a war but don't want to paint it again you can always cover it in brightly coloured E-Tape for the day.

    I like it, the fact you didn't use any sort of power cutting device is a big well done to you, i last about 2 seconds before i spit it not using a Dremel so well done.Love the bandage!

    I have my own dremel now so next mod will hopefully be cleaner, and I was going to put some warning tape on the barrel (the black and yellow kind) except my Mitre 10 had none in stock.
    The bandage was from my first aid course, so I thought it would be fun to put on as a sling.

    Great modded blaster, and your idea of recycling kmart kids binoculars is genius I would never have thought of that.
