Awesome. LOVE that Clanker feel.
Did it work? Looks like it.

Yes it did.  :D The goal was to replace the original plastic breach with a metal one of smaller diameter, allowing tighter fit so the air can fully push the foam dart out of the barrel. Have not done a full range test, my house is around 32 feet long, and it flies, hits the wall and ricochets backwards alot... should have the potential to consistently break 50 feet.  :)

Nice. Need to do this myself. Actually get some range out of my Maverick. You do this yourself, or get instructions?

I just attempted it myself... I probably did it sucessfully as i went through alot of initial failures doing the basic mods, so i'm familiar now. (I guess clankers don't always succeed? XD) i used 17/32 brass, but i've been told 9/16 is better... You could probably look up tutorial online for a mavrick rebarreling. Although after that it'll only accept the "streamline" darts the longshot uses, if the chamber were to be 1 consistent diameter.

Not really. Not all Clanker scars come from fencing, after all.
Eh. The "sticky" darts really aren't that useful anyway. They fly like shit.

You just gave me more ideas. I'm actually working on making a steampunk Transformer. Gonna make a fencing saber for it... I just made out of lego pieces as a guide, kinda small now, but looks awesome.  ;D

It's alternate mode looks like an airship out of mortal engines. Google images may not be that clear, but there's a ton of clockwork and steampunkish-royal deco all over the thing. I expect it to be completed by mid June... Handpainting the small details is painful...

The base figure i'm working with is Universe Vector Prime... You can google it, but the stock images don't do the actual thing justice...

Listening to the Yogscast on Youtube talking about the new Star Trek game. They mentioned the "new Kirk" (as in Captain Kirk, but new... somehow). You can probabely figure it out from there.

Ahh. Not the memes again. The point was that "new Kirk" sounds the same as "Newkirk", by the way. I just realised it isn't as obvious in my post than I thought.

No, i got it what your point was, I just felt like a troll. The internet kind, not the ones from Dora.

Yeah. I know what a troll is. I'm just wondering what the "Dora" refference is.
