Cool, Duck_Slayer.

May I ask what you did to each gun and the ranges, particularly the LS. (I'm not asking for a writeup, just a quick list)

And am I crazy or is that LS barrel really long?

I read on NH that the volume of the barrel should not exceed the volume of the...uh, the thing that the plunger moves through (can't remember what it's called). It has to do with pressure. But basically the effect is that if your barrel is equal or greater in volume then your dart will slow before exiting the barrel and thus decrease range.

Oh, and how is the accuracy of the LS over long distances?

Sorry for all the questions.

Not a problem:  On the NF I removed the ar's did a barrel replacement/nesting, and I did a reinforcement. On the Ls I did angels modd except I used petg instead of brass as for the ranges they are better because it has a better seal and the petg is nested inside the barrel so it gets good ranges I nottice little difference between 20' and 60' accuracy wise so all in all I'm glad I did the mod.

Wow Angel's mod is complicated: good job that you even finished it without breaking anything, let alone got good results.

Otherwise (concerning the LS):

1. I didn't know you could nest PETG inside each other, as is required in Angel's mod. Hmm...unless you mean you used PETG just for the barrel and the bolt was still made with brass

2. If I read that right, you got the same amount of accuracy at 60' that you get at 20'. That's pretty good.

3. What darts are you using with the LS? I'd assume stefans since "streamline" darts are awful for accuracy.

Again, good job.

Yeah it took me about 3 days to do it right.  And I used petg for the barrel for a less-friction material.  I use the sefans can make/find.

Just a tip, I wouldn't use so many rubber bands on that NF, theres to many to count! shocked. My luck is with 1 big rubber band, I get mine at wal-mart, but office depot has better seletion.

Yeah. Its looks like you need to be really strong to cock the gun! I did one band and it broke my NF...I don't band my guns anymore. grin

Really its 2 rubberbands and 2 hair thinggies I got from my cousin (I modded it at his house and we stole some of his sisters hair thinggies) so it's not as many as it looks.  And Indian no it is just the angle of the camera.

I see. Just something to think about to many rubber bands can actually reduce range.
