Moving Blogs: See you at NM&R

Alright guys, I've loved operating my own blog here, but the fact of the matter is that I only have so much NERF time in the day. Don't worry, I'm not going anywhere, in fact, I'll be posting more frequently than ever this summer. It just doesn't make sense to post here and on Jerm's blog NM&R and maintain my Youtube channel. So, I'm going to be giving up the NerfGrid to become an exclusive author on Nerf Mods and Reviews. I'll leave this site up so you guys can still read the Halo Nerf Rules and so I don't have a ton of dead links on my videos from the past, but if you want to continue getting the updates on my work and all the excelent stuff Jerm's up to, follow us on NM&R.

The Nerf "Ice Drake" A Custom Longstrike + Maverick Integration

Hey guys, it's Drac and I'm back on the horse. I just cranked out this Ice Drake (commissioner's name, I wanted to call it the Hunter). I'm really pleased with how it turned out but I'd love to get feedback on what you guys think. If you're interested in making one yourselves, the video shows how I did it step by step.

I think its a cool way to augment the longstrike and it doesnt sacrifice the mobility of either blaster. I may be doing more with this detachable integration trick in the future.

My Tron Nitefinder Giveaway and Build

Hey guys, it's Drac and I'm sorry I haven't made a post in a while. I have been super busy with end of year student stuff (exams, tests, packing, driving). I also attended my first war which was a solid drive and a ton of fun. Anyway, I'm offering this contest/giveaway blaster up to my subscribers on youtube and wanted to make it avaliable to the viewers here as well.

So there you have it! Drop me a comment below to enter and I'll addend these comments into the ones from my channel when I do the drawing.


P.S. There will be many more posts this summer, I have more free time and can amp up the modding.

Introducing my spartan shot .117, an epic longshot

This is my video explaining how I made my spartan shot 117. There were a ton of facets that went into this mod. I originally was just trying to get a decent blaster out of an awful ebay auction I got in, and I ended up creating my new primary with the junk I was sent and some newly aquired brass. The maverick has all of my mods in it (If I;m not a maverick expert by now, then im doing something wrong), and the longshot is my second angel breech and works much better than my first. I also got to put a k26 spring into this blaster, and it is my first k26 use. All in all, this blaster is powerful, versatile, and looks fantastic. I hope I only get better from here.

Introducing my Hellsing Arms Casull .454 AUTO

This is my mod that is half for cosplay and half for my own personal satisfaction. I've been meaning to complete this mod for a while and finally got around to doing the detailing. The detailing took an hour for each side because enamel paint leaves no room for mistakes. I really enjoyed this project and think it turned out looking pretty nice. My only regret is that I have no way to enlongate the barrel and make it a bit more true to the anime. After all, my alucard cosplay has won awards, it's about time I made a decent prop. I'll probably attempt the Jackal sometime later, but for now this will suffice.

I really want some opinions on this blaster. Let me know what you think of the asthetic and whether or not the readers here would be interested in seeing more nerf guns from anime. If you have a particular one in mind, drop me a comment. Thanks for reading.

Finished my Custom TRON Mavericks

I finnally finished up my Tron maverick mods (called sark and tron) based on the color of the el wire. This is without a coubt one of the trickier electronic integrations I have done to nerf blasters but they turned out excelent. The detailing took a long time to dry all the separate coats, but it was well worth it because they now looks just as shmick in daylight as they do glowing at night. Id love to get you guys opinion on them as I put a ton of time into them and they are now my flagship sidearms.
