Red Strike Elite Alpha Trooper - JSI Edition

Here we have a pretty standard haul on an EAT with a nice Red/Black repaint that the commissioner dubbed "the JSI Edition Red Strike series." Hey, we don't have a problem with that, when the first words out of his mouth were "it looks like the plastic came out of the box this way." Oh the wonders of vinyl dye and clear coats. However, we were asked to retain all orange pieces as orange for HvZ legality (Purdue is cracking down on it's "simulated firearms" bs rules...).

  • Red/Black "JSI Edition Red Strike" paintjob (3x black vinyl dye undercoat, 2x red Krylon main coat, 3x matte clear top coat.
  • Basic internals (AR removal, Half-lock & bolt lock out - slamfire lock obviously retained)
  • OWM 2x spring addition
  • Imbued with the badass, zombie slaying spirit of 1000 fallen soldiers (really) (but not really) (but really).

Delving into the RapidStrike

So Ivan was the first of us to get a RapidStrike and really mess around with it. The internals are surprisingly simple (once you figure out what's going on in there), and the shell is easily split for painting.

Not much changed from the stock setup, but the overvolt is throwing darts out to about 80' flat at about 360rpm. You can expect a more in depth internal build soon from Jake, based on TorukMakto4 & Naazrael's motor testing and developments.

  • Tan/Grey/Black mixed stripe paintjob w/ clear coat
  • Internal rewiring to bypass electronic locks & PCBs/ICBs
  • Overvolt to 360rpm
  • P90 sling (works like a charm)
  • Dressed up with some "tacticool" attachments for added coolness

Don't mind Ivan trying to look tacticool

Stampede: ACR-esque assault conversion

Here' we have one of the more recent things to be finished: a stampede with the general assault conversion, but with more of an ACR-esque design.

  • Desert Tan/Black paintjob (black vinyl dye base coat & clear coat protestant)
  • Custom assault-style body design with ACR-esque features
  • Top Nerf rail replacement
  • AR Removal + OMW 2x spring
  • Battery box addition for overvolt
  • Electronic lock removal (4/5)
  • Laser attachment (with changeable pressure/toggle switch)
  • NcSTAR Red Dot sight

Deadpool Stryfe Set

Sam made a custom pair of Deadpool-themed Stryfes to go along with his Deadpool costume (seen at BSU and OSU Invitationals).

Custom paintjob, overvolts, and lock removal, that's about it.

Hands-on Rapidstrike

Catching up on everything that we've done in the last 2 months, we haven't really been present on the blog or FB due to the high load of work we've been swamped with this semester (and Sam is on co-op again).

Anyways, here's the first hand's on job we had with the Rapidstrike. We really like it, it has a lot of potential when revamped correctly.

This unit was painted to match the recipient's Halo Spartan armor., and has a simple overvolt to 360rpm.
