2018 Update - New Products and Paint Types

2018 Update:

Thank you to everyone who has visited my site, bought blasters from me, recently or way back in the day. 
 
I wanted to address why I launched this projec then seemingly didn't go anywhere with it. I can't give you details, but I was severely injured a few months ago, and I'm slowly recovering. I'm using this time to plan where I'm going with my blaster business. 
 

In a few months, I'm going to do a hard reset of this site, my etsy store, and my direct store. What can you look forward to?

ALL NEW custom blaster pacakges, with even MORE advanced tech like brushless motors, built in ammo counters, LED lighting and more. 

Custom 3D printed parts designed by me, including a truly unique product line no one has yet done that solves a very real problem in this hobby. 

Fully custom airbrushing. The vast majority of Nerf customizers use spray paints, and I have too, but way back in the day I used to use an airbrush, and I've decided to add this to my workflow. This will look amazing, and I will of course have images to share once I do. 

There will be more videos and images as I go along, and much more. Thank you for your patience, and feel free to order stuff now, or just say hi!

Policies

Sales Policies:

All sales are final. Please be sure of the blaster type you want before placing your order. 

In the cases of gifts, I can't read minds. I don't know if the recipient of your gift will like it or not. If they don't, I'm afraid I can't help you. 

In the cases of Concierge Service please see that page under ORDER. 

Abandoned Orders:

In the event that an order is placed and paid for, but is never picked up, or cannot be shipped to a valid address, is returned to me and the customer does not respond or resolve the issue, the order will become invalid 60 days after the original ship date. The product will be returned to inventory for sale, and no refund will be given. 

Please make sure that you provide a valid shipping address. See "Shipping Issues | Invalid Addresses" FAQ for more. 

Shipping Policies:

Shipping Issues | Invalid Addresses

Please make sure that you provide a valid shipping address.

For orders over $500 I will ask you to confirm your shipping address by emailing you a copy of the shipping label before I ship. 

In the event that a shipment is returned to me, I will email you a photo of the package with your address on it, and a copy of the original order reciept, either from Etsy, or from my own shop. 

If you entered your address incorrectly, you are responsble for paying for a new shipping label. I do not cover this. 

In the event that I have to repackage and reship your order due to your shipping address being incorrect, I may have to charge additional shipping to replace the packaging assuming I didn't use a flat rate box. 

Your replacement shipment will only go out on a day when I am shipping another order. If you need your order sooner than this, I will charge a small fee to make a special trip. 

If you do not provide shipping within 60 days of the original ship date, your order becomes invalid, and will be considered an "abandoned order". See "Abandoned Orders" FAQ for more on this. There is no refund for this. 

Return Policy:

I'd really like to accomdate here, and in the old days I did, but since these are all custom, one off projects specific to each customer, it is impractical for me to offer any workable return or refund system. There simply are not enough "ready to ship" order types to cover my losses. Plus, no one wants a blaster that someone else already had then rejected. 

So please be sure that of what you want before placing your order. 

If there is demand for it, I will create a secondary market page on my site and allow you to list your blaster for sale, and help those transactions. I'll have to work out a fair price for this, but for now it is the best I can do.

Ready to Ship Blasters

Ready to Ship

If you don't want to wait, I sometimes list pre-configured blasters as either "ready to ship" or "almost ready to ship". The difference is whether they are already sealed. If they are, I can ship them out same or next day. If not, I can still do additional detailing/weathering, and then seal them ( which invokes at least a 7 day wait ) and still ship within two weeks or so. This is in contrast to the two plus weeks a normal project takes because all of the sanding and base coat work is done. 

To order a READY TO SHIP, please send me a quick email, and indicate which READY TO SHIP blaster you want. Don't visit the payment page yet. Once I get your message, I will quickly change the status of the blaster below to "$RESERVED". You will then be directed to the payment form to complete the order. If you do not complete the order by close of that day, I will return the blaster to available status. Once it is paid for, I will change the status to $SOLD. 

I do keep listings and images on here of sold blasters, not to brag but to allow future customers to order something just like it. 

almost ready to ship:

The following blasters are sanded, and have a base coat, but have not been detailed or sealed yet. These are "almost ready to ship" in order to have nearly complete blasters with common base coats. If you like what you see, let me know how you would like it finished, then order it like normal. 

1 - Rival Apollo  - With Soft Iron and Satin Nickel base, "brand new" look. Tip can be left stock orange, painted a new orange to match, or painted soft iron or nickel, or rust to match.

Price - $SOLD - But if you want a Bigshock just like it, I'll custom make you one for $39 or $49 with upgraded spring.

1 - Mega Magnus - BATTLE READY - with "brand new" paint application and stock moving parts ( works perfectly smoothly ). I offer any blaster with the orange tip intact, and some I strongly suggest ordering with some of the moving parts kept stock, as no matter how much I sand and paint it, they will be tighter, and will wear off eventually. This scheme offers a beautiful compromise between full painted and stock performance. On this example, I show the trigger in orange because it creates a nice visual balance, but the trigger can be ordered painted as well, and will have no effect on performance. 

NOT SEALED and almost ready to ship.

This version is similar to above, in that there are no "detail" paint apps, but ALL of the visible parts are painted. You can either purchase this blaster as is, or order it to be painted with details and weathering.

Coming Soon: 

1 - RIVAL NEMESIS - BATTLE READY - With full LiPo conversion and paint. Paint TBD as Blaster isn't out yet, but I have all conversion gear ready to go. I will most likely keep the FIRST one I do, as of course I will, but get your order in now to get in line for the next ones. 

Price - $249 ( $399 with LiPo Conversion )

 

1 - N-Strike Disruptor - They look pretty much like a Strongarm. I expect the innards to be compatible as well. I will probably do that one in a Uryaen classic "old Steampunk" style, that was my best seller. 

Price - $99

 

1 - MEGA DoubleBreach - These are on sale this month, so order TODAY for 10% off. I'm starting the first one now, and it will be a metal and wood heavily worn look. 

Price - $149

Many others coming as well.

Reviews from current generation product: 

Coming Soon. 

 

The following are reviews from my my original painting and modding practice: 

Reviews for Tier 3 - Steampunk:
 
"I'm absolutely floored man. First impression when I unwrapped it was awe inspiring. It looks damn good in the pics, but i found myself checking the heft of it to make sure it wasn't a real pistol. The attention to detail, the look, everything about it is utterly glorious. Still a spot rough around the grips and what not, but i'm sure with enough handling it will have that well worn feel to it as well. Can't find a single thing about it that i don't like." - SA
 
"Wow, you sir, are a true artisan of the modern age. I am a bit of an artist myself. In my spare time, I like to design spacecraft and write a sci-fi screenplay. Before I sound like a pretentious oaf, I'll add that it's merely a pastime of mine but I hope you can see where I get my perspective.
 
In short, the paint job on the Maverick is worthy of a gallery piece. The detail gone into the 'rust' effect is meticulous and the way the gloss has that hauntingly eerie sheen truly captures the eye. You're not selling guns, you are selling art, except that your canvas is a toy gun. I can appreciate art coming from the unexpected and I can safely say I appreciate, nay, I admire your work. It must take a lot of discipline to accomplish what you do.
 
I'm also sure it must pain you at times to part with your pieces considering the effort you infuse in them. Personally, I don't see how you do it." - WS
 
 
Review for T1 - Shiny Black:
 
"I got my gun a few days ago and its fantastic. The thing looks gorgeous and mechanically has exceeded my expectations.Every time I pull the trigger I know it'll go the distance, fly true, and look damn good doing it. Well done, Ryan!"-M
 
"I've had my gun for a couple of weeks now and I have to say that my  
initially favorable impression has not diminished one bit. It's  
difficult to believe that this thing is a toy. My weapon is both the  
envy, and bane, of my  peers that participate in our ongoing office  
nerf skirmishes. From the realistic looking paint job to the internal  
modifications -- this is truly an impressive piece with the attention  
to detail being second to none.
 
While the wait for the gun to be completed was not an inconsiderable  
period of time, your ongoing communication -- complete with pictures  
of the progress to date -- demonstrated a professionalism and  
attention to customer service that is just not generally a part of the  
internet purchasing experience. The final product was more than worth  
both the wait and the cost. Well done dude!!!!
 
 
Hey Ryan -- I am in the middle of a computer case mod right now and it  
occurred to me that the graphite colour on the gun might be perfect  
for some of the detail work that I am planning -- would you mind  
sharing the product name that you used for the base graphite colour?
 
Thanks, K"

Mod and Paint Packages

Mod and Paint Packages

The standard options. If you need something not covered by these options, let me know. 

UPDATE on pricing and Packages for Sept 2017 - In order to simplify my workflow and pricing, I am no longer doing full blown "battle ready" sanding jobs on blasters. They take an extreme amount of time and energy, cost me a lot to do and I have to chage a lot for them, for a very small target market. 

I addressed this in 2008 by having a "display only" version of my sanding process, wherein I only sanded each blaster minimally. They are still sturdy enough for display and light play but probably not enough to stand up to wars. 

Well, this was confusing for many, so I'm simplifying things. From now on, I am splitting the difference, and my sanding process will now be ONE TIER, and that tier will be a bit above display, but not as intensive or expensive as BATTLE READY. 

This means I am lowering pricing. This is not a "lower price" for the same project, it is a lowering of the scope of future blasters. Those of you with my battle ready blasters still have a unique and extra sturdy paint job. For everyone else, this new scope makes a lot more sense. 

In this light, there are no further discounts, but I might still throw in bonuses when I have extras of anything. So check out the new pricing below, and hit me up on the order page or on my Etsy store

All of the following include the standard mods and paint options listed below. There are infinite options beyond this, but this is the standard pricing:

Included Mods

Varies by Blaster, but the usual options are post/AR removal IF desired, re-greasing, re-enforcing o-rings, and removal of various locks. Anything that does not involve purchasing or creating new materials is included in the price.

Included Paint

Almost all paint types are included. I do not do mural/image painting. I do base coats of various types, and hand detailing. All are included.

Pocket Class Blaster - $39

MEGA BigShock TRIPLE Mod - I now offer an exclusive modded Bigshock that can fire MEGA darts, and in seconds can be converted to fire regular size ELITE darts AND RIVAL HIR. It can fire the elites or Rivals without ANY change to configuration. 

The insert I carry allows for both, but if you prefer the more standard insert type, that allows for elites but not rivals, I can either include that for the same price instead, or you can get it online elsewhere. 

I will have further pricing info, images and video of this soon. 

 

Sidearm Class Blaster - $99

Examples: Disruptor, Dual Strike, Split Strike

Medium Primary Class Blaster BATTLE READY - $149

Examples: Demolisher, Alpha Trooper, Magnus, Cycloneshock, Apollo, Zeus, Atlas, Artemis

Large Primary Class Blaster - $199

Examples: Centurion, Mastodon

Others TBA

Rival Khaos and Nemesis

These are a bit of a special case. They are larger and more complex to sand than most others, and the modification is by far the most expensive and involved, so they have their own listing and price class. 

Rival Khaos Class Blaster BATTLE READY - $199

Rival Nemesis Class Blaster BATTLE READY - $249

LiPo Battery Conversion ( Battery not included ) - $150

Here is a video demonstrating a stock vs. modified blaster: 

khaosyoutubebanner

Comparison of Stock Khaos vs. modified with LiPo battery.

Mags were loaded with 45 rounds each. Stock has D cell Batteries. Modified used 3000mah 30C 11.1v LiPo Battery.

The Battery used in this test is an E-flite 3000mAh 3S 11.1V 30C LiPo Battery - https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1127413-REG/e_flite_eflb30003s30_3000mah_3s_11_1v_30c.html

This is a very high drain, how capacity battery. Your mileage may vary if you choose to use a cheaper battery.

If you look closely, you can watch the yellow stock rounds fly out of the stock blaster, but with the modified blaster, the rounds are not only flying out more frequently, but also so much faster, that you can no longer see them EVEN at 60fps. I can capture about 5 of them in the air at 1/8000th of a second, but that's only after they ricochet.

Fully painted and modified Khaos and Nemesis blasters are available NOW here.

I only work on up to two of these orders at at time, and they take many weeks, so get your order in now. Orders are filled first come, first served.

How do I know which Blasters you Classify as which Size class?

I tried putting the following chart under FAQS but the faq software would not allow this much info in one chart, so here it is.

You don't need to wonder, I have made a list of ALL current gen, available and coming soon products and their size class by my definition. 

When a blaster is listed with two sizes, it means that it's a judgement call on my part, and depends on the nature of the modifications and paint work.
