What you will need:
Lots of glue sticks
Phillips screwdriver ( or addition sign screwhead)
and some patience?
Alrighty lets get starty! I bought a Big bad bow at my Toys R us for about $20.
I've seen many people on this very site mod them and have had good results but I was tired of doing other peoples mods, So I made my own. I had a ton of 1/2 inch Cpvc left from past modding.
Ripped out the internals and saw what i could do. I threw out all the air restricter pieces except this one
cut where it is marked and keep this piece for later your going too need it.
Not much to do but replace the barrel. But how? well I took this piece right here, which was located at the front of the gun and cut off the barrel where the arrow goes, all the way down to the base like this
Here comes the part that i was surprised actually worked. I was really worried about sealing the barrel properly so I took a very bold step. I cut out 8.5 inch of cpvc and put it in the base of the barrel which I cut off earlier. Than i said to myself "How the hell am i going to make sure this is sturdy enough?"
I put the barrel in enough so that the plunger wouldn't knock it senseless. and than i sorounded it in a sea of very hot glue.
But i didn't put too much otherwise the plunger casing wouldn't fit.
So I glued it up too here.
Make sure theres no air pockets it should be completely glued in(everywhere its blue).
Do not exceed that red line or your pieces will not fit together. Your going to need to hold your barrel straight until the glue dries, but once it does your good to go. now put the white piece we had earlier and put it back in and it should look like this:
so your new barrel is almost complete.
I epoxied the new barrel to the plunger casing for an airtight barrel.
Now put it all back together and you have a new Big Bad bow that capable of hitting targets 100 feet away with top accuracy!(and a good stefan)
Heres the Demo Video! >
