Re: Destroyed My Gorgon

Replacement Backpacks and tubing

Hello again! I have just acquired a cps 3000 and I love it. The only problem is is that it didn't come with it's backpack. So what do you all use for replacement packs? I was going to go either camel pack or solar shower (or even a 3 liter bottle) but the camel pack seems small. Aside from the packp...

Re: Huge soaker selloff

for the cps 1200, xp 150s, and ss mds. How much would shipping be for all 3? I want to do the bid if no one else is, I'd hate to see those go to waste.

Dang. I want the monsters... If we bid and win a few blasters could you give us a shipping deal?

Re: Replacing pipes in pinch valve blasters

I meant at the connection the the pump area and halfway down the pipe of the nozzle so I could swa[ something in. I decided to go with a sleeve of a wider pipe to connect it.

Replacing pipes in pinch valve blasters

Here is the result of me replacing the pipes in an ss 50. I used a smaller OD pipe in this because the pipes are more rigid and 1/4" wouldn't let it compress fully with the strength/leverage generated by the metal pusher. Somewhere I have the original pipe, so brown and compressed no air could get t...

SS 50 wont pump

Hey! I got a bunch of blasters today and figured I would start with the worst first. It seems like there was modding done. There is epoxy on the back of the pump tube. But I can't get it to pull att all when its in the gun and its really stiff of a pull when its just internals. Any tips? http://i138...

Re: Gauging interest in the Jersey Shore

I couldn't find the 200 for the ranged, but with a strap and a ton of shell reinforcements it seems like both the 200 and (original) 100 would be great blasters outside of CPS rounds. I love the way they look, though as for primaries I also just got a xp 150 (10 shipped :D ) that should be here soon...

Re: Gauging interest in the Jersey Shore

So a 100 is a better than a 200? Sadly they're all mk1, and I have never been able to get the 105 I have's nozzle off

Re: Gauging interest in the Jersey Shore

Right now I'm starting on what I can get for relatively inexpensive, and when the hobby kicks off with my team we'll buy better guns and possibly sell what we have no. I also would like to get basic guns to get used to modding with vinyl tubing more. Hopefully some barbs or quick disconnect valves i...

Re: Gauging interest in the Jersey Shore

Right now my price range is maxed, but I should get a TON of decent enough blasters to get a starting point for my team. My legs a little messed up right now sadly but I got 9 people that "should" be definites for a war in a week or two :D Though It would probably end up being about 6 (counting myse...

Re: XP 110 (with a hundred and ten problems)

Well leaky water isn't so bad. I have two rubber bands there now and actually came on again to post that it's working sort of. I think I need better rubber bands that aren't from staples (Trader Joes brocoli doesn't come in rubber bands anymore...) and it should be good minus moderate leaking. Right...

Re: You Call That a SC 400?

Well, I may mod the crud out of the "SC 400" from this. The nozzle probably has to be replaced so I may PVC threading it and then have a few nozzles.

Re: XP 110 (with a hundred and ten problems)

Well, the check valve seems bad, I need to get a rubber band, and it leaks from both the pump (check valve) and the firing pin. Buuuut I'm getting 25-30' with it if I hold it shut and deal with the leaking. So it is going to be my bottom of the barrel loaner haha.

Re: XP 110 (with a hundred and ten problems)

If that doesn't work I'm just putting it aside. Driving to PA to pick up a large lot on saturday, then I shouldn't need anymore soakers for awhile.

So do you really think I should put a ball valve on the 110? What size?
