This mod is for being able to use different barrel materials/types, not to breech load each individual barrel, you still load these from the top.
For this mod you will need,
- 8 cpvc couplers
- 8, 4 inch lengths of 1/2" pvc
- some cpvc
- plumbers goop
- zap-a-gap/fishin'/crazy glue
- e tape
- a hack saw and dremmel
- a pair of pliers
I found this gun at a thrift store and immediately got to work
Here are the guns internals
The main part of the gun that we will be working on is the turret. You need to pry off the orange cap on top before we can do anything to it. It should look like this
Next I just ripped all the barrels off with a pair of pliers, unscrewed the screws in back of the turret, and removed the blue barrel sheath.
I cut the remaining barrels down to about 1/2"
This part is a little bit tedious and annoying, take your 8 couplers over to a mitre box and cut 1/4 of the coupler off, not 1/4", 1/4 of the coupler
Next you need to cut 8, 1" segments of cpvc. Pipe cutters make this really easy. then put the 1" segments into the short side of the couplers and use some type of super glue and glue where the cpvc and the couplers meet.
Wrap e-tape around the small stubs of cpvc and cut the excess off with scissors.
Put a ring of plumbers goop around the bottom of the cpvc, and stick it into the turret. Do this with all 8, then put the blue cover back on
Now, on to making the barrels.
Cut 8, 4" lengths of 1/2" pvc, and 8, 1" lengths of cpvc. take you 1" of cpvc and put it into a coupler, hammer on the 1/2 pvc, then remove the coupler. I also sanded down the little "lip" left by the pipe cutters so it was even around the bottom.
Stick the barrels into the couplers and it should look like this. I also did the bic pen mod, and I put some etape
tightly wrapped around all the barrels for stability.
You can put some petg in the pvc, or use some cpvc directly in the couplers.
Ranges are decent:
Micro in 4.5" PETG- 65'
Micro in cpvc- 62'
Ranges are not as good as I would have liked, but I didn't plug the pump, and I measured in freezing conditions.
I think that this gun is decent a decent gun, I wouldn't use it in an outdoor war, but it would be great in an indoor war.
Here's some more pics for refrence when putting it back together.
