The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

Well , I have been struggling all day with a 3d printed pulse rifle kit , it’s been a nightmare !! Every part I touch breaks , it’s fragile as heck and the parts don’t fit together well at all - not to mention it came with ZERO instructions , just a picture of the finished kit ! LOL - total joke - should throw it away ……. So - My wife just ordered me a matrix pulse rifle from evike !! It should ship Monday - I’ve not had one of these before , any advice or tips for these ? I plan to mainly use it for cosplay , but I may use to do some target shooting . Can a sling be added and be secure enuf to use ? Don’t want to take a chance in dropping it . Are there alternatives for the magazine cap ?

Pretty sweet that your wife sorted you out with an airsoft Pulse Rifle (that's love, right there ... that or she was sick of your b*tching :D If it were my wife, I know which one it'd be ... ).

Re uploading pics - have a read of Moosh's excellent tutorial HERE, and if that doesn't help, PM me and I see if I can directly assist :)

If you can get some pics up, ppl here might be able to help with assembly.

My first recommendation is get a 20-30,000 RPM Neodymium magnet motor, to replace the weak ferrite magnet motor, and use a 7.4v LiPo, or LiIon battery with about 2,000 or so MAH.


Turn the hop-off all the way off and, clean the inner barrel with isopropyl and a rifle cleaning patch.

Also, use .28g or higher bb’s.

With those simple to do tasks, you should have a fairly snappy and decent shooting replica right off the bat.

Down the road, once you get comfortable enough to dissasemble the body, a tightbore barrel and a Maple Leaf Macaron 60’ bucking will help you get a even more accuracy and range, using .32g.

I have been able to make 200 foot shots with my Pulse Rifle, and before DMR’s were allowed onto the fields I played, I could go up against any other non-Bolt Action on the field.

I tend to build replicas that play the long game, and can be skirmished for a long time.
Once I finish my rebuild of my M41A, I am planning on doing a writeup on the forum.

@Whamhammer - Nice advice, fulla, thank you.
Looking forward to seeing your write-up (esp if there's a detailed take-down).
