    I need some new data for some stuff I'm working on, if anyone can provide it would be great! Hell if you provide enough good data I might even give you a free sample of the new products I'm working on

    Optimal Plunger Padding Diameter's and heights for the following blasters. By I need the diameter and optimal height and any specific reasoning why

    1. Night Finder
    2. Longshot
    3. Stampede
    4. Big Bad Bow
    5. Firefly
    6. Scout IX-3
    7. Crossfire
    8. Triple shot
    9. ANY INTERNAL PLUNGERED BUZZ BEE BLASTERS.
    10. Wipeout / Magnum Blaster.
    11. ANY OTHER INTERNAL PLUNGERED BLASTER OR OTHER BLASTER WHICH REQUIRES PADDING.
    12. Swarmfire and other new dart tag guns.
    13. Any of the Vortex Line which may require padding upon modification.

    O-ring Replacement DATA

    I need to know the following details about all blasters.

    1. Which blasters can have their STOCK o-ring doubled up to achieve a better seal.
    2. Which blasters have an optimal seal with the stock o-ring in place.
    3. Which blasters require a larger o-ring to gain an optimal seal.

    Pictures of broken parts due to stress or modification

    I require pictures and detailed text of parts in blasters which break under stress and in what situations these parts will break. IE Longshot Boltsled (Breaks on increasing spring power, stormfire plunger head, breaks without padding etc) I am particular interested in broken stampede parts but need to collect as much information on all blasters.

    Other information

    Other ideas and input to the above data.

    You can reply directly on the thread or send it to ben AT FOAM - SPORTS DOT COM

    As you can probably tell I'm working on kits very precise and cost effective kits. If I can get all the data collected before the end of the month they might be available before March.

    The triple shot does not have an prong it has skirt seal but you could double up on skirt seals if you made one that replaces the smaller skirt.

    Buzzbee Rouge and X-shot stealth have 100% stock seals; DTB's/Hyperfires have weak priming rods, the ridge where it catches snaps right off under stress.

    I can help you with O-rings. I have about 300 different Orings to play with. Will do some research when I have some free time.

    I have a broken recon plunger somewhere that I'll take a picture of, I'm sure you're seen one before but i'll see if I can get a decent macro photo to really get a good idea. I'm sure I have more broken parts too.

    Guns like the nitefinder, element, diskshot, stormfire and guns with similar plunger setups to the nitefinder can have their oring doubled up


    And the guns listed above generally need larger orings to create perfect seel.



    But that's just those guns

    Was compiling a list for you but I'll throw some up for you now.
    Foam Magnum: Weak priming rod, snaps and base of gussets. Perfect stock seal. Has plunger dampening spring.
    Night Finder: O'ring can be doubled for alomost perfect seal. Requires padding of plunger head.
    Long Shot: O'ring can be doubled (I have not been able to test seal as yet due to being in the midst of a major rebuild. Stronger trigger catch spring required at intermidiate spring loads, can use 5mm thick padding on lock removed blaster (unsure of effect on locks).
    Recon/Raider/Alpha Trooper: Padding over 3mm thick effects dart loading aswell as locks/slam fire mecs.

    Gathering more info as I go. Should have more for you by next weekend.
