SledgeFire Mod Planning
I've always thought about modifying a shell for firing a MEGA dart, so I might look into doing that for one of my spare shells. Plus, they'll soon be releasing a Refill Pack for the SledgeFire shells, so I don't have to buy a whole 'nother SledgeFire just to get more shells. However, part of my plans for this fella include figuring out how to best carry extra ammo with this thing. Drop pouches, clever use of magnets, there's a bunch of ways to store these 3-dart shells.
Then there's the matter of power. I already know what removing the Air Restrictors will do for power with this thing... but I also don't want to break another SledgeFire. Turns out some of the internals plastic is kinda thin, as I did find a broken piece when I opened up SledgeFire #1 before gutting it. The upside is that now I have some spare internal parts, but not for the one that broke, obviously. I'll be exploring ways to reinforce the internals, but I'm hoping you guys have some ideas for me, too. I need to get my SledgeFire slinging foam like no-one's business, as I hope to field it at the next indoor Nerf game. Plus, I've been working out a quick way to dish out darts with this thing (video inbound), so stay tuned for that.
