Mod Shop – Nerf Centurion – Streamline breech conversion – Part Two

Continuing on from where we left off yesterday, lets talk about the newly modded Nerf Centurion.

As is said yesterday, the clip well adapter is beautifully simple.  photo DSCN9020_zpse7184855.jpg

Place it into the stock clip well and you’re done.

Here I’ve removed the jam door to better show you how it sits in the blaster.

With a 6-clip.

Then pops out using the standard clip release button.

And again, the smaller clips are held in place by this little nub. To release a clip, simply pull down.

OK, enough photos, how does it actually perform? Not as well as I had hoped. I really wanted this to be at least on par with an AR’d Longshot, but it really isn’t. It’s a lot better than the stock Mega firing Centurion in that you’ll be able to use all of your existing darts and clips, but only a metre or two increase in range.

All told, I still think this is a massive step in the right direction towards making the Centurion game relevant, but there’s still quite some work to be done. My next mod on this blaster will be an attempt to improve the stock plunger tube by plugging the slits that run down the side, then I’ll have a go at replacing the spring or maybe even a complete plunger replacement. I like giant blasters and I want it’s performance to match it’s size.


Mod Shop – Nerf Centurion – Streamline breech conversion – Part One

Well this was somewhat of a surprise. Earlier this week I got a message from Pocket of Urban Taggers saying that he had a package from Blaster Parts, their “BCC – Blasterparts-Caliber-Converter for NERF Mega Centurion”. As I’m sure you all know, Pocket isn’t one for modding so I gladly offered to help.
