I just got the package including two Big Blasts and two Single Tek's and so I thought I might as well make a write-up, seeing as there's only one in the Directory.
So, first take off the slider. Be sure to take out the indicated screws which were under the slider.
Then open her up. Beware of everything exploding on you. Everything that matters should look like it does in the picture (except that the spring should be around the plunger rod).
Now take out the plunger assembly.
Pull the peg out of the barrel; Before and After.
Take the plunger chamber and cut as shown.
Now take the cut-down barrel and pull the remainder of the peg out. Then take a dremel or drill and widen the hole a bit (I used a 1/8" cylindrical shank). Before and After.
Go grab a CPVC coupler. It should have a nice fit already, but put some super glue on the stock barrel before shoving it on. You could also just do a barrel replacement by sanding the inside of the original barrel down, but this way you can have reversable barrels.
Now take a look at the plunger head.
It's got a pretty nice seal already, and has a piece of rubber at the front to provide some cushioning. This way it's still relatively quiet even with an added spring (we'll get to that later). I took the o-ring off with a flathead screwdriver and put some e-tape once around where the o-ring used to be. Replace the o-ring and lube it up (so pictures, sorry). The stock spring is okay, but wouldn't achieve anywhere near where one would want to be worthy as a sidearm. I twisted a CrossFire spring underneath the stock one, and it works well.
With the addition of the CF spring, I was worried about missfires. The catch spring is pretty strong, but I didn't want to take any chances. Take a pen spring (or an actual catch spring) and glue it as shown.
That should do it.
Now put everything back in and glue the plunger chamber down so that it doesn't twist around while you're trying to flip the barrel. Right now there is alot more glue than there is shown because the original amount didn't hold up through range testing. Finished internals:
Now close her up.
By now you should be wondering how you're going to cock it. I screwed up my slider, and have bad experiences with sliders in the past, so I opted for a different route.
Take a zip-tie and about four inches (give or take depending on how big you want your handle to be) of 1/4" vinyl tubing. Sheath the zip-tie as shown.
Now insert the open end of the zip-type into the slot where the slider-rod used to be.
And complete the loop by running the open end through the lock. Cut off the excess afterward, but be careful to leave enough so that you can grasp the end incase you need to tighten it later (it loosens up after some use).
Yay! now you can cock it without being worried about screwing up your slider!
Now I know what you're all thinking: The 'ties will aventually get stressed and snap. Yes they probably will, but in the event that you're using this in a war I created a holder for extra zip-ties out of a piece of FBR with a hole through it.
Ranges are decent, and this gun could be good as a loaner for wars.
I don't know what happened with the two long shots.
Average without the weird shots: 46.3'
All ranges were taken with the same dart and I used a 100' tape measure. It was windy (always is) and I was always shooting into the wind (if there was any). The angled shots were at an ~10degree angle.
