    Hey folks,
    Im starting on my second custom blaster and would love any pointers you got.

    My biggest question is what do you use to fill the dead space inside the blasters? On my first one (longstrike) i just crammed it full of really dense foam and hot glue..

    Doing a retaliator now but i dont think that i can get enough foam in there to really give it any weight, Any ideas?

    Hey, Do you mean plunger/barrel deadspace or deadspace in the shell? Because the retaliator is a direct plunger, it has very little plunger deadspace, so it probably wont be worth it to try and fill it. If you mean deadspace in the shell, epoxy putty or plasticine (credit to Stoph) would probably work well.

    As far as mods go, an AR removal will do a bit, a spring will do more, and a breech replacement will do more still. One thing that is often overlooked is improving the dart tooth spring, it can really help to push darts further into the breech, adding range.

    Hey,
    Yeah I meant in the shell..
    Plasticine is brilliant, going to do it asap. AR is gone and ive compressed the spring slightly, now contemplating the orange mods Solid for the breech etc.
    When you say "dart tooth spring" is that the spike and spring inside the breech?

    Yeah, the dart tooth is that little flap and sliding thing that pushes the dart into the breech when you prime it. Replacing the spring with a stiffer one helps to push the dart in further.
