Modified Battlemax Sceptor!

This is the finished Battlemax Sceptor.  It was quite an easy mod, which yields great performance.  The mods done were 1/2 Pvc couplering, minimization, and pump handle replacement.

In most Sceptors I've seen, people like to use pvc wyes for the pump handles.  I didn't use a wye because of thee reasons. 1: I don't have one, 2: I think it looks ugly, and 3: its a waste of a good wye.  So, I used the original pump handle.  I just cut it down, and glued it on with hot glue.  I think this looks much better, feels much better, and is much easier to obtain than a wye.

I followed andtheherois's write-up on Nerfhaven when I modded my Sceptor.  In his writeup, he used a 1-1/4" to 1/2" reducing bushing for the coupler.

I plan to eventually use a hopper on this blaster, but until then I'm going to use the cpvc breech I made.

Overall, this is a great blaster to mod.  Its relatively cheap, pretty easy to mod, and fires great.  You can't really go wrong with this one.

And as always, a firing demo:

MIG Style Stefans!

I saw a post by Makeitgo awhile back on NerfRevolution on how he makes his darts.  Apparently, the way he made them, they got much better ranges than the normal stefan.
MIG stefans
So I decided to give it a try, and wow.  These darts are amazing!  I saw an immediate 10 foot increase out of all of my blasters, just by using these darts.

Supa domey
One reason why these darts work so well, is because they are very domey.  By following his instructions in his writeup,  I made almost perfect domes on every single dart that I made.

Strawz: dey help yo.
Because he uses stock dart foam for his darts, they have that hole in the middle.  That hole is one of the big reasons why they get much more range.  That hole allows for more air to be pocketed behind the dart in the barrel, before it is pushed forward, therefore increasing range.  The straw insert helps with the rigidity of the foam, so it doesn't squish down in the barrel from the air pressure.
Make some now.
Overall, if you want to use the true potential of your blasters use these darts.  However, they are slightly more expensive, take more time to make, and are more difficult to make than regular stefans.  Personally, I will be trying to make and use this type of dart more often.

Thanks Makeitgo!

Cpvc Breech!

Just a pretty basic Cpvc breech.  It didn't take long to make.  Its made from a Nerf Hornet pump tube, and cpvc (obviously) and fits into any 1/2 pvc couplered blaster.

Supa 1337
The Hornet pump tube nests over cpvc fairly snugly, and creates a good, but not perfect seal.  It all depends on the batch of cpvc though, as some batches are a bit "fatter" than others.

Open breech
The slot I cut for it is long enough to accept streamlines and stefans.

A very simple and basic breech.  It shouldn't be hard to replicate if you wish to do so.

And finally, for your viewing pleasure, a demonstration video:

30,000 Pageviews!

Pacific Nerf has hit the 30,000 pageviews mark!  Thank you all so much for reading and supporting this blog.  I apologize for its slow productivity recently, none of us really have anything of worth to show!  :\  However, stick around because I'm about to preform a very unique and special mod that will definitely be worth the wait!

Again thank you for all the support!  Leave a comment below if you think we should do a Q&A!
