    Finally put my kronomag together after a long wait. The EZE kronomag kit itself is fantastic. The lowrhine pump kit I installed is very disappointing. The issue being the shape of the pump grip making it a mongrel to prime even with a k25. It was easier to prime using the stock slide. It's around 170fps with the BT scar and k25. I think it needs a longer barrel as the 18cm the kit comes with seems way too small for the PT volume of the kronos.

    Two stage dominator, Fang Revamped motors, 2s.
    1st - 42.5 Gen3 cage with Worker "grooved" wheels
    2nd - 42.5 Aurora cage with Bulldog wheels
    The Worker grooved wheels have a higher crush than the bulldogs, the loose second stage seems to be working.

    160-170fps with accufakes, I think worker full lengths are hitting harder.
    40m with a slight arc, accurate at 30m.

    Some cool recent videos. Bradley's vid using a Caliburn in a Gel Blaster game was quite insightful. Accuracy at range over rate of fire proves useful.


    One of the games from the last Wasteland Wars event. I think Justin's blaster could really benefit from a SCAR, lots of shots that would have landed with one IMO.

    Picked up 2 stryfe's for kids yesterday, more fun than expected.
    Are attachments normally hard to find/expensive? Trying to find some red dots or iron sights that dont cost more than the guns lol

    It's nice that they are $19 off the shelf after years of importing them. If you think the Stryfe is fun stock you should try it with a lipo and daybreak cage/wheels.

    Best place to find aftermarket parts cheap would be aliexpress, workerkit, etc. You will often need a nerf to picatinny rail adapter to allow aftermarket sights and grips to fit as most of the cheap ones are made to fit airsoft rails not nerf rails.

    If you don't mind spending a bit more then there is AK blaster mods, Monkee Mods and the Aus based Blastertech in QLD. There is an entire scene for 3d printed nerf parts as well, if you have a printer or know someone with one you can print all sorts of cool mods.

    Also https://www.jase3d.com/shop/ for some printed stuff.

    Yeah was thinking of using real rails and cheapo optics, but since its mainly for the kids they would mostlikely snap them off lol

    What’s the differences between Nerf and X-Shot?

    Different brands... Nerf is generally of a higher quality.

    Still not sure why we are calling them nerf guns and the projectiles bullets. Blasters and darts is a far better pair of terms considering they are toys.

    I 3d print custom ones that use paintball air tanks to propell the darts up to 8 times harder than standard nerf... still dont call them guns and bullets.

    Same. It's just blaster and darts. I'm working on my second supercore build in an MA40.

    Are there any local suppliers for the caliburn internal kits here in Oz? I've only managed to find overseas ones which makes it incredibly expensive from an import perspective.

    If you're going for a caliburn or talonclaw you'll def want a U channel version and even then I'd suggest a nexus pro, prophecy, longshot or similar injection moulded shell.

    Got a worker swift today. It's pretty damn good once you swap the O-rings and fix the vacuum loading issue.
    195fps with a prime weight that feels like a stock nerf blaster (50-60fps) and fairly accurate to 30m.
    can get well over 300fps with a stronger spring and longer barrel.

    Haven't stuck my head in here for quite a while and good lord... things have, um, advanced quite a bit since 2014/2015. :)
    I don't own blasters any longer (gave the modded ones to mates and unmodded ones as stocking stuffers) but I'll enjoy keeping an eye on what you guys get up to.

    Can't even remember the names of the blasters I had now... a flywheel pistol with upgraded motors/lipo (Stryfe?), a motor-driven-spring "assault rifle" style thing that I cut down to subgun size along with some motor/spring/piston mods, a couple others which remained unmodded so nieces/nephews could play with them, and a decent selection of large mags including a couple of those awful drums.

    I presume the huge takeoff of 3D printing may have changed what is possible for the average home gamer in terms of custom parts and specialised mod kits etc.

    Stryfe sounds right, the other one was probably a stampede. There are a huge amount of 3d printed blasters ranging from in grip magfed pistols to bullpup springers like the Lynx.

    Yep, stampede, cheers.

    Derp, of course people are 3D printing entire blasters, I'm a dumbarse.
    What does a customised SMG-sized blaster cost these days? (ballpark, without any super fancy mods like optics etc.)

    The top one is a copy of a CP2077 pistol
    AEG blasters like this one may become common as well.

    Essentially it functions the same as the stampede

    Well that is pretty friggin sweet.

    Smartened up a bit and used the search function. I actually had two Stampedes.
    The mod pics look incredibly hacky now after looking through the last several pages. :lol:
