I'm saving the better one for later.

Here it is.

Posted Image

Gigantic draw length.

Posted Image

After a quick look-over, I found this at the back.

Posted Image

If you block the barrel, it vents the airs through these holes (and the foam underneath it). Cut a piece of craft foam that will fit over it.

Posted Image

The foam isn't going to be the only thing blocking it, but I assure you it's pretty airtight. Try blowing through it. Anyways, now goop up the holes.

Posted Image

Place the craft foam piece over it, and wipe off the excess.

Posted Image

Now we just need to make a new barrel; it originally shot shitty missiles. Cut off the barrel close to the green plastic.

Posted Image

Wrap some CPVC in e-tape so it fit's snugly, but leave some without tape on it sticking out the front. Alternatively you could leave more of the original barrel on, and wrap a CPVC coupler in etape (and glue it in). Glue the stub in and then a CPVC coupler over it. After this let everything dry.

Let everything dry, and you're done. Like it states, it is actually just a cardboard tube for the plunger chamber. Here's a pic of when I cut it off, hoping to improve the seal. It is actually perfect (the seal) and it is actually carboard.

Finished product (I had to duct tape the plunger back together; I wasn't going to waste anything else on this thing).

Posted Image

After range testing with 6, 8, and 12" barrels, the 6" getting the best range, I only got about 50' consistently, and about 65' if I really pushed it. It maxes out at 70', no matter how hard I try.

In short, don't but this piece of cardobard for $10, I just bought it because... Well I don't really know why.

Questions? Comments?

Holy of all. You are a mod tacular person. Im serious, you come out with a new one like every 2 days or so. This one is nice. Ive seen these, and their advertized ranges an said Oh my god what BS will Lanard ( I think Lanard makes these) come out with next? A pistol that shoots 80ft? Well anyway, good to see that you did something usefull with it.
Good job

Nice mod, good job even though it had a cardboard tube(that's pretty weird). Good thinking sealing those holes in the back. Keep up the good mods.

Great job on the mod, I also liked your recon "max-out" mod as I call it. If you can get 60 feet for 10 bucks it seems like it would be pretty good to me. Also, what is that thing on the back that's holding little green things that look like bullets? And finally, what's the name of this blaster?

That might be worth bying just for the shell.

Am I the only one that thinks the shell is sweet?

Oh, nice job by the way of all

Discretion is the better part of valor, thats why I carry a very big axe.

You can fool some people all of the time and everyone some of the time, but you cant fool all the people all of the time, but it sure is fun trying.

What have I got in my pocket? (tolkien)

Where did you get this? Looks like some perverted toy.

How strong is the cardboard?

MSDFS: Thank you. My next one might be a little while (next weekend) But I'll try to have one a week, that is, if I can get enough guns to modify... And yes, it's made by Lanard

Silencer: Thank you, I still can't believe it's carboard.

Foam: Thank you. I like my Recon mod too. It's not really that bad, and it's pretty easy to modify. The clip at the back is purely cosmetic, and came like that (stock shell). It's called the J.A.M Blaster.

Dangaard: Thanks, I think the shells pretty nice too. Might have to put a Titan in there or something...

Crimmy: The clip is cosmetic.

Keef: I got it at Ocean State Job Lot in MA. THe carboard's pretty strong, almost 1/8" thick. It would be hard to bend, but it is cardboard.

Thanks everyone,

I really think that with that air output you should have higher ranges. Maybe a shotgun mod could better harness the air output.

5. Protip: sarcasm is good for making someone else look like more of an idiot than they already do. However, if you are an idiot to start with, using sarcasm just makes you look like a COLOSSAL idiot.

Ah... I was at an Ocean State Job Lot the other day trying to hunt down some Maxshots when I saw this same blaster. I thought to myself, "Someone would have to be a dumbass to buy that and try to modify it successfully." Guess you proved me wrong, good job.

When speaking about a swallow, always make sure you know whether it is an African or European swallow. It is very important.

Is the plunger head open to the back? If so, you should definitely plug it.

Thank you everyone.

If I ever get another one of these, I'm going to try to shotgun it.

Just to clear some things up, the clip is fake, and part of the shell.

It's a push and pull gun, and doesn't have to be primed or has a trigger.

If you have anyone questions/suggestions, let me know.
