In terms of integration, a SSPB is great because you can literally just slap them on anywhere and hit a single button as needed.  They're fantastic on Alpha Troopers, for example, since they can be mounted by the slide grip ready to rock whenever.  However, you're really only going to get that one shot, but if it saves your bacon, you're golden.

Jolts are fantastic if you can find the space, but they do require more foresight than an SSPB.  Modding them into a truly vertical tube can help somewhat, but they just don't work quite as well as an SSPB in a lot of circumstances.  Easier to make multi-firing than an SSPB, sure, but they're still not going to be rapid-firing any time soon.

I made a homemade bandolier for about 5-6 dollars. Should I optimize it for carrying ammo or socks or ammo and socks? I'll post pics up later on.

That all depends on what blaster(s) you plan on using. If you're using a clip system blaster, i would do two or three spots for clips, not individual darts, and then the rest socks. If you are using a barricade, or other non-clip blaster, I would have room for 1 or 2 full refills for your chamber and then the rest socks... Or there is always the overall effective sock ninja option... it really all depends on your ammo consumption

Wrong thread, but I would use a dedicated solution for socks and avoid the carriage of mags in a bandolier.

Back on topic:
Checked on the local Target (Orlando, FL) and found much new shit.

NSE stuff has landed, one day after the release date, in one of the worse stores for up-to-date and complete Nerf inventory in my area. 12/30 round packs, mags, Rampage, Retaliator. No 75 round cases, Hailfire mag kits, or Hailfires. On the NDT front... strike, no Snapfire. However, Pyragons were present.

I bought some NSE darts in J code. Result: Possibly better stability than K-code NSE, and better barrel fit.

Buzzbee's 2012 offerings were all there: Rangemaster (Orion), Cougar, Jaguar, AND OVERLORD, WHICH IS A FLYWHEEL GUN. *whoopee cushion*

Caught something interesting at yet another target lately.






Am I not paying attention to the news on this front, or is this a new development? Looks to be the spitball/gel market is getting jealous of Nerf's tracer darts and NSE range boasts...

Roboman had a post on that on the Nerf Modders FB page. He got a tour/meeting with the company that makes those. More stuff will be coming out towards Xmas.

This should pretty much seal up that tangent on what to integrate on the last page

Boom! Headshot.

Well, not actually. There were four (I have the other one) at my target and with further investigation, prompted by darthrambo, there was no price tag for them on the shelves. When checking out, they had no record of them and did not show up on the scanner. The lady there said that she would put them up for five dollars each and now I have them. Note: results may vary so don't waste your time looking at other retailers than the ones listed.

More triggerless gel ball launchers from this company (Maya Group?) spotted at Target!



Wait, what? RETALIATOR? Do I see a nuclear oil hurricane of a legal battle coming or is that me just overestimating Hasbro's aggressiveness on this stuff?

On another front...
http://bazookafied.blogspot.com/2012/09/out-with-new-in-with-old.html



Bazookafied's REPLACEMENT OMW Massacre Longstrike bolt failed. Same deal, lug tore off. This was a 5kg spring.

Watch those massacre parts like a hawk. Be careful not to trust them too much, and always bring your tools and spares if you run something with them in it! And if you are considering buying them now, I wouldn't - a whole NSE gun is cheaper than kitting an existing Raider or Recon and far superior to using this stuff.

OMW, you need to get back on your game, and my advice if you can see this is that the polycarbonate was never a good idea. It's the wrong material for the application.

The same break happened to my OMW Longstrike Massacre set but it was only after my friend dry fired it like 10 times. Is that a common break for OMW Massacre sets, or is it just something brought upon by excessive dry firing?

It's common failure mode for these bolts and doesn't seem to be affected by dryfires. Gun in blog was owned by someone who takes care of his gear. He probably rarely dryfired that one. He also had an xplorer RFLG so I doubt there is anything with twisting of the bolt carrier and lug at fault here. The LK massacre bolts in particular seem hit the hardest, but I have seen alpha bolts die as well. They are weak and poorly designed. It's a combination of factors that the lug/feed guide failure can be traced to, including feed guide length and all the sharp corners in that stress area to send cracks back toward the lug over time until it fails, but the root cause of the durability problems with massacre is that OMW went for a material (PC) that the NIC is inexplicably obsessed with but is probably not the ideal choice for many of these parts, and then mostly duplicated the stock bolts and carriers feature for feature without any serious structural redesign.

I know of 5 documented kabooms EXACTLY like this one and at least 3 other massacre bolt breakage incidents. And that is only the tiny fraction of the community that doesn't just post/say nothing and chalk it up to defective parts and get OMW to replace them.
