Since BB5, the kids have gone Nerf crazy.  Inspired by all your equipment, my kids have consumed a years supply of gaffer tape. So, I can now confirm that my kids and I will be coming tomorrow.  I will even have a go myself, if I they lend me a Jolt.  So that's three more people paying hard cash for entry.  Look forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

New hardware just arrived so now I have no excuse not to strip and clean both Stryfes. I guess it's going to be a long evening... Best get that 2S LiPo out from somewhere just in case my primary clocks 130FPS+.

Apparently my Blastersmiths order has turned up today, because my other half recognised the parcel and opened it because it's got some stuff for them in it too. I just got a message proclaiming "I didn't want a spring, why did you order a spring?"

So looks like I'll be popping a 5KG spring into something later. I wonder if I can jam it into my Atlas behind the existing spring....

Stacked springs are a very bad idea, especially in anything with a geared prime. Put it in a proper blaster where it belongs.
My gear is stuffed in the bags and my lipos are charged!

I've already got an additional 2.5KG one stuffed in there, but the 5KG would probably be overkill. I'm pretty confident in the Atlas gearing because of the depth and thickness of teeth when compared to Elite gear trains. Will have to see how the longevity is for it; for science!

But you're right, the 5KG is going into the first blaster I bought, my Elite Stormtrooper Blaster; which was the intended original destination.

Just as a warning. After half an hour so of usage in the second Hendon Nerf war, having put a stronger spring (I think it was a 7kg) in to mine had deformed the priming bar, so that the blaster no longer catches.

NG- 7kg is overkill in those. Really not built for it. You can fix the prime by adding a disc of 1.5mm-2mm plastic sheet to the head of the plunger or better still fill the void in the head and add a rubber (NOT FOAM) buffer.
I stand by stacked springs being crap, in everything. You are hardly getting any performance gain for a whole load of potential mechanical problems. Game blasters need to be reliable first, powerful second. It's no use shooting a few hard shots then breaking.
Mags now loaded, bag bulging!

This. Too often people's fun is ruined mid-game by a build that goes pear shaped. Build for resilience in all cases because you only get a few hours to have fun shooting foam at people. You can have the 'build the biggest, baddest blaster' fun on your own time. In field you're there to shoot people and play organised games.

I've just cleaned and balanced my primary Stryfe. I'm about to shove an Artefact cage and Worker wheels into a 2S Rhino side arm. I had to go with 2S because the 3S pack I wanted to use has changed specs without Hobby King warning me. On the bright side, it'll be sub-130. Very Happy

EDIT:

Side-arm is now fitted with an Artefact Red cage and Worker wheels. It's running 2S LiPo because I couldn't fit the 3S pack in there that I wanted. Stupid Hobby King for changing specs without informing anyone. On the bright side they're both chronographing at under 130FPS so will be system legal.



These are my girls. They will shoot you and you will get tagged. You have been warned. Wink


Elsewhere, I've gathered my mags and quite a few darts. I'm not sure I'm going to bother with the shield. It's bulky and I've not had time to integrate it into my load out properly. I've still got a holster to sew this evening so I'll likely give it a miss.

Looking forward to attending a war as me and shooting things. Please respect the line between business and personal. I'd ask that you don't ask me BSUK related questions unless a) I bring it up first b) you have my advance permission (you know who you are if you do).

A little bit psyched now... Very Happy

Soon as I get in I'm getting my blasters prepped, Lipo's charged and the rest of the war equipment ready!

Really looking forward to this!

Yes, yes it is. Very Happy

Reloading drills done, batteries charged and all kit checked and stowed for tomorrow. I can't stress the importance of practice if you want smooth reloads and and easy ammo management.

Super pumped.

Batteries charged, and mags labelled so I don't loose any this time. Oh, and single shot conversion on the Atlas completed! Not had a chance to proper test fire, other than "yup, I can fire 12 individual shots at the curtains from 10ft away". So tomorrow should be very interesting...

Rayven on Barricade motors, original flywheels, rewired on a bunch of IMRs will be my primary for most of the day. Atlas will be for shits and giggles. And intimidation factor!

Right batteries all charged.. kids are packing their first (minor) modded blasters with locks removed, improved pushers and IMRs now I (Semi) trust them. Just be warned! Son also 'stole' a broken rayven I just fixed and upgraded. Should have kept that one hidden!

North257 messaged me to say he and two others can't make it so I won't be at the parkway station at 11am today to be clear. Unless I hear otherwise.

Looking forward to trying out my new rig. Hopefully no more reloading mid game or dropping mags! Nothing like trying it in action!

Pre-event breakfast of bacon sammich and coffee consumed. Pizza ordered for lunch (there's a Hut just around the corner!) now to start loading magazines. Very Happy
