What is a "Long Gun"?

Chris Cartaya here, I used to blog some 10 years ago and now I am Back, I am at it.  See This gun, That is a "Super Retaliator, a Modded Nerf gun of great tactical advantage.  It's not just a spring mod and shoots far or just has that cool Scout Glued to it, uses a fuctional Sighting rig, no that is not all there is to it.  It is hand fitted by me internally and uses modified lockups for more accuracy.  It takes a lot to make it a true  an Extended range mod known as a "Long Gun"



Now lets say for example, you get a Nerf gun to go oh, 120, 140, 160 feet per second, which is fast for a Nerf.  It Can't be a long gun if it cannot reasonably go long now can it?  The problem is they are still foam and they will richocet on the air like a flat rock skipping over a pond and even worse, the gun's own air is the darts enemy bouncing it around the barrel.  You need to stabilize that Dart, surpress, but not cut off the air out of the barrel, and lock up and align the barrel so each dart perfectly lines up inside.  IIf i were to ever make em for sale, it would be Parts + Gun + 30%, I must use a brand new gun, that must be part of the 30%.

Let me tell you the Variants...

Super Retaliator---  5Kg Spring, A OMW Trigger Catch Spring, Half Cock ratchet Removed and a OMW     trigger catch spring used for the trigger lock cam (which also acts as a rear bolt sled lockup), Passive Surpressor on barrel attachment and lazer centering to ensure accuracy.  Recon sights attached to rear stock assembily to avoid it getting in the way and to provide a longer sight radius.  Performance..80 flat, 140-145 arched 105 max effective (5 degree arched)  135-140 Feet per Second

Super Retaliator Plus--Same as above built with an OMW Retaliator Unleashed ki.t

Super Velocee' Retaliator--- Same as the Super Retaliator with a 5Kg  and a 2.5 Kg stampede spring added for a total pull of  7.5Kg, a deeper Passive Surpressor and Lazer sight sighed at 90 feet.  My main outdoor battle gun.  95 Flat, 160 Arched, 120 Max Effective, this baby really shoots flat and cuts though the wind.

Ultra Retaliator,--- OMW 5Kg Retaliator Spring and a OMW 4Kg Stampede Spring, Aluminum Bolt Sled, OMW Retaliator Unleashed Kit, Lockups same as Super Retaliator.  Predicted ranges 110 flat, 175 arched and 135 Max Effective.

R-Spec Retaliator.--- same as the Ultra Retaliator with 5Kg and  6Kg Springs, 8.5 Kg and a stampede spring or a single 12-14 Kg spring, with or without a surpressor barrel assembily or with a built in active Spiral Surpressor.  Ranges,  125 Flat, 150 Max effective, 200 Arched and the word "Ouch" Often Muddeled by victims.

  1. When you say that the SV has a deeper passive suppressor, what do you mean?, also which is better spiral suppressor or ported retal barrel?

  2. Yea, a full inch rather than 5/8ths and a Ported Retal barrel is better.

  3. does it make much difference whether it's deeper on an SV or could you get away with the 5/8ths like on the super

  4. Also, when you have your barrels ported do the darts still spin around and fly sometimes or do they generally all go in the same place?

  5. Just more stable, less wild but only 5-10 fps less if done right.

  6. how many bolt sleds have you broken on a super or super veloce retaliator?

    ReplyDelete
  7. 3 plastic bolt sleds that were pre-super retaliator, probably back in august-october of last year. Right now the Super Veloce' and the Rx both use plastic sleds, but the R-Spec uses aluminum, Why? did you break one?

  8. no just wondering how much risk I would be at if I gave it 7.5kgs spring power. How did you break the boltsleds?

    ReplyDelete
  9. I broke them by keeping the mid prime lock in place, lose that and you will be fine.

  10. what damage does it do taking out the bolt and trigger locks and then pulling the trigger with the bolt all the way back?

  11. Hold the slide, move it forward, it decocks it! Which is why all my guns have it.
