Of course they would be, what do you think SSCentral's internals section is for? It is a little small though, you likely could get a many more internal pics. I would like to see that. :) it looks as if you could saw the inner nozzle and get close to a 60x or more Impossible, there is no soaker that...

You could do a simple mod to fix that sucking noise. I tried it on 2 of my CPS soakers as a test. You can read about it at this SSC topic.

Maybe Big Bee could make a big soaker and call it the Great White! :cool:

Nice! However I find that is too similar to my homemades, well actually my homemades plus a pepper-style reservoir. I prefer to draw mine out on paper because I find it is faster and I can refer to the original when drawing a final version, but if you like this way then it can get the same results ...

I just recieved a challenge from Bluesmudge on SSC, if his team is large enough you guys may be in for quite a war story. You live near him? From what I know his team is really bad, at least that's what blaze has told me. Maybe you'll meet blaze too. They both have APHs btw. I've only seen pics of ...

I find this funny because I built two homemades more powerful than a CPS 2000 for much less than half that. :laugh:

3 or 4, one is planned tommorow. It will be where I battle test out the Glycerin I just recently bought. That and my most recent homemade. Many of the guns there likely will be homemade actually, because most everyone is using my guns!

I have a repaired QFD that I have no use for as I have no guns that use it. It is repaired because the hose attachment broke off, but I repaired it with some tubing. Now it is better than before because you can move the QFD more freely. How much are you willing to pay for it?

I wouldn't get them, rather save the page and then use their list of patents to get your own collection started.

I have even considered making a backpack for the tanker on your team, loads of water and a few QFD spots. My portable QFD actually is rather pathetic (and so is SSP's), could have been so much more. The system is so simple, I don't think anyone should think they really are something special. I lite...

That's not my AIM name. Mine is Nexusmonkey. I've been considering making a homemade like that, but I haven't because it is dependant on an air compressor. That is like, in fact worse, than making it a SC gun. Once you run out of water your dead, simple as that. Unless you have a portable air compr...

Even on my homemades the max range is still doesn't need a scope. You can get 55-60 feet on a good first generation homemade, but you still would not need a scope on that. I've been happy using a PVC sight even on my longer range Nerf homemade. With practice you can get along fine without a scope o...

1) No, not all the time. It depends on the soaker. A 2700 will blow without warning, and a CPS 2100 will just get too hard to pump anymore. Soakers with the trigger valves that are unopenable I have found to be stronger and not need internal reinforcement. 2) I know how, it depends on the type of C...

Personally the most useful sight would be a scope, but I'm not that crazy. What I have tried that works really good for it's price is taking some 1/2" ID PVC about half a foot long and taping that onto your soaker. Make sure it's lined up good from the nozzle to your eye, that takes some work but i...

I measure 1x as 1 ounce of water per second. I believe that is 29 or 30 ml per second. It probably was just iSoaker's specific gun that underperformed a little bit. That and the fact that it's air pressure, output isn't constant and that may have thrown his calculation off.

While it does depend on game type and how long the battle is going to be, the most important stat through all of that is range.

Fine, I'll put the correct answers here now. I had to look... deeper.

1) SS 200
2) SC 500 if single piece, Big Trouble if not
3) Bob's, as it is on some of his other guns too
4) 1994 version (mk2)
5) Red, gray and yellow as on the Aqua-Nexus.
