My Maverick got great ranges before it ( I have no idea what happened) broke. I did various small mods and replaced the spring with a RFR spring (Holy shit! That thing is actually good for something!) and it got 60 feet (no shit). But after it broke it got 20ft max. I decided to give the gun the kick it deserved for the beautiful shell. Well, mines not beautiful, after several failed paintings, but nonetheless. I integrated a “Super Charger 400” which is a SuperSoaker, back from when they were still owned by Larami. All I did was attach some ” tubing, and bent the firing pin, all very easy mods for the kick that the gun gave.

Sorry the lighting is bad, and my mom’s camera sucks:

I installed the stock by drilling a few small holes and putting bolts through the holes from the inside, and gluing them into the stock, which is made of CPVC.


The internals: (pump, tank, and trigger)

The slide is attached to the breech, which consists of a 9/16” outer, and 17/32” bolt and inner barrel.:

It gets at least the original 60ft at 6 pumps and has a rate of fire at of 12 shots a minute (1 every five seconds). It’s an utterly beautiful gun (If your over look the bad paintjob), and it performs well. What more could you want?

Once again, it is proven that broken mavs can be made great.

nice use of the old super soaker hardware. If I didn't live in southern california I would have scrapped my CPS 1000 and 1200 for parts. Awesome job.

The slide is attacked to the breech, which consists of a 9/16 outer, and 17/32 bolt and inner barrel.

Attacked? Huh? You mean attached. Or...do you? :unsure:

That is so going to be added that hilarious quote to my signature, while playing with my butthole. Well, my current sig is better. Nevermind. But good mod. It's like a puppy being rescued from a dumpster and growing up into a fierce guard dog.

It's not like that. I put lube on it and its the same. Its just stuck. And when I cock it back it goes farther back then usual. Also I push as hard as I can and it wont go back in. I've tried the methods and they wont work. Also pics are up.

Yeah, I meant attached, not attacked. I went through spell check to fast.

Its actually fairly easy to pump, and you have to pump the first two or so really fast otherwise it wont pressurize... I don't know why.

Thanks for all of the comments guys! Keep 'em coming!
