Post SA80 sling.  Reply with quote
After looking around for some sling attachments and not finding anything suitable I ended up buying some small carabiner's and drilling holes in both the stryfe and the worker stock and tie wrapping them on.
came out quite well in the end.

Liking the use of an SA80 sling, my personal favourite too. Sections of old metal wire coat hangers wrapped in shrink sleeve (to remove the shine - you can just use black hangers) work well as SA80 sling mount points too although granted they're not as durable as a carabiner.

My entry is kind of a commission... Franksie mentioned on the Discord that he had nothing to hold his 4x18 clips when he comes to GuN next week. So I decided to kill two birds with one stone, a clip holder and a competition entry. Remember, take pity on me, I can't see!

I call this the Dragon Pouch (for obvious reasons). It comfortable holds 3x18 (because one should be in Franksie's blaster!)and is belt mounted



Fully functioning belt loop



Fancy cross stitching on the belt loop so it doesn't break!



edit: I posted a comment on the GuN review thread, but I should really mention it here... this was built to be used, and while I had a concern that it might flap around a bit due to a lack of leg strap, Franksee used it throughout GuN7, as both a clip holder, and as a dump pouch for darts and a jolt, and it worked well.
Whether or not I win, I'm pleased with what I made and am glad it got used.

Here is my entry, it's my homeade load out which includes a mag holder, dump pouch, and hammershot holster.


The hammershot holster is made from a pancake mix box and gorilla tape, the belt loop is made from a folded peice of gorilla tape, the Nerf logo was put on with a stencil and a silver sharpie, you can't see in the picture but it is drop leg for a right hand draw.


The mag pouch is made from a V-Moda headphone box and gorilla tape, it comfortably holds 5 12 round mags it is attached to the belt with a nylon strap which is secure and tested the same method was used for the Nerf logo


The dump pouch is actually a bubble wrap shipping envelope and covered in gorilla tape the belt loop is made from a folded peice of gorilla tape.


Here is a picture of all of the gear together, I have run around with all of the gear and am preparing to take it to a war on the 16th, I hope you guys like it.

Ok so this first started off as a Boredom thing but then I started to enjoy it and it turned into an awesome project. I've always like the idea of transporting/storing blasters like this and this is my first one I've done, I'm hoping to do more in the future, let me know what you guys think Smile

Less than a week to go peeps. The competition closes midnight Monday!

I know most of you will knock something together Sunday evening. There's nothing like an impending deadline to spark some productivity.

Hey guys, this is my entry.

I have built a mechanized backpack feed for my Nerf Havok. The idea of course to feed ammunition from a backpack and into a Havok without having to worry about the belt snagging under It's own weight. This idea seems to have been talked about a lot and I myself have always wanted one to use at The Green Cloaks, so I thought I'd try my best to assemble it with the help of my very slim knowledge of electronics and a pile of broken Nerf products (courtesy of my younger self).



This project cost me nearly nothing as all of the parts I used were salvaged from broken items or were left over from a previous project. I believe the only thing purchased for this was a torch which cost a grand total of 1. Although if one was to attempt this project from scratch I assume it would be relatively expensive to get everything.

Here is a list of the items used:
A button (taken from my stampede)
A length of wire
AAA battery compartment (taken from the previously mentioned torch)
A Nerf ammo box (though an alternative with a higher capacity could probably be found or made)
A switch (taken from a broken Havok)
The motor and gear box of a Nerf Havok
The feed (teeth?) of a Nerf Havok
A rucksack
Tamiya Connectors (left over from the Havok's battery upgrade)
Cardboard
Duct tape
Araldite
Electrical tape
a plastic bottle cap

The belt is stored in the Nerf ammo box and is pulled out of a hole cut in the side by the feed mechanism. There are two holes in the box as the result of an old project to turn it into a magazine, the second hole is not a feature of this build.



The actual mechanism itself is simply the motor block cut out of a spare Havok with the feed teeth glued to the top with araldite (I know, professional). This is connected to the battery compartment with a simple circuit that runs out of the ammo box housing and through to the Havok.






The motor block is bolted into the lid of the box which acts as a compartment to hold the motor and the electronics. A lid for this was then constructed out of cardboard and duct tape and a guard of sorts was fashioned out of a bottle cap to protect the wire's connection the the motor.





The belt is stored in the main part of the box which has a capacity of about 70 darts with the feed hanging into it, though the finished product can deal with much more as the chain has to reach round and out to the gun anyway.




The button to trigger the feed and the on/off switch are both located inside the Havok. Therefore the feed plugs into the Havok via a length of wire and some tamiya connectors. To prevent the wire snagging and the connectors breaking I tie the wire off round the top handle of the blaster, this is of course until I find a more elegant solution to the problem.
The feed is activated by a button fixed behind the trigger of the blaster. The feed is in sync with the rate of fire so that it can fire continuously without having stopping to readjust the chain. I first attempted to achieve this through the use of a voltage modulator, adjusting the voltage reaching the motor until it reached the correct speed. This failed as the modulator I used was salvaged from an old toy and though it appeared to work at first, it practically burst into flames after a few tests.





In the end after testing an array of batteries I discovered that 3 AAA batteries did the trick. They are housed in a compartment taken from a pound shop torch. Please note that this speed was configured to that of my modified Havok, a stock Havok would need a much slower feed.

After testing the feed at The Green Cloaks I decided to install an on/off switch so that I could deactivate the feed whenever needed without having to constantly unplug it. It also acts as a safety as I would also find myself occasionally triggering the feed while picking up the gun, and ending up with a pile of chain to deal with.




Here's a video to prove the thing actually works:

That's about it


I'd also just like to say thanks to Elime_rawne for introducing me to this competition, and just so you guys know i'm totally going to be using your tacti-cool ideas Very Happy

I forgot to add a picture of it stored in it's backpack.

Elime_rawn told me about this months ago and I tried to come find you at GC because I wanted to see it.

Brilliant. I am totally stealing this idea!  Wink  Wink
