Recently I was looking through the modification directory and I saw that there wasn't a mod for a SMDTG. Although, I believe Bag's may have done something with it. Anyway here's my SMTDG mod.

Materials:
-SMDTG
-1 ft of17/32 brass
-Hot glue
-Hot glue gun
-Screwdriver
-A tool to cut brass (dremel)

Here is one of the guns completely stock:
Posted Image

First open it up:
Posted Image

After this there is a semi-hidden screw right here:
Posted Image

Here is the op vavle, you can hot glue it or cover it with tape:
Posted Image

Next, take out the air restrictor's and the peg which are here:
Posted Image

You take out the ar's and peg by removing the screw that was previously shown. Removing the screw, took off the stock orange barrels. This is what it looks like with the ar's/peg in and no stock barrels on:
Posted Image

Don't forget to take out the springs too!
Posted Image

Now cut your brass into four 4 inch sections like so:
Posted Image

After this, hot glue them inside of the gray part of the gun. This was where the stock barrels was on. Now reasemble your gun with the new barrels. It should look like this when done.
Posted Image

This is a very simple and easy mod that gets good ranges. My barrels are slanted downwards, however, which made the results less. Not to mention the fact it's 45 degrees and rainy in Washington. Ranges were roughly 55-65 ft flat with 15 pumps. I'm definently going to do this mod to my other gun, as well as integrate these into something spectacular. Hope you liked it!

Questions, Comments, Flames?

Good mod. You should 2k turret this and have a wrist blaster of high ROF and doom.

I'm probably am going to integrate these on something, you'll see. Also, that'd be awesome with some at2k turrets. It would look very weird though.

Your running around a field with a bunch of college aged kids shooting foam darts at each other. Don't worry about it working weird.

Anyways, thank you for posting a write-up for I have not seen a SMDTG write up yet. Man I really need to get a BS/Hornet/SMDTG.

I'm only 14...Also I think it'd be awkward to have to switch each turret everytime. Along with that, it won't fit in with the integration I'm doing with this. Thanks for the compliment, I screwed up my first SMDTG and thought they totally sucked after that, so I traded one to Sam. I then bought another pack (3 actually) and I am now in love with them. If you can get them, I'd definently recomend them.

You're still over the age of 8 running around with a brightly colored plastic gun. You still are going to look weird.

Have you noticed that all Nerf guns have "age 6-12" on them? It's sort of like saying "We take no responsibility for you looking like an idiot while using this product if over age 12."

Anyways, I'm glad someone finally made a basic SMDTG mod, and yes, they rock. I bought three packs, but only have five blasters left. I'm going to have to scour my stores for them, or buy a few packs online.

Nice mod. With the size + RoF on this gun, you could probably integrate it nicely into a Titan, an LBB, a BBBB, or a LSB. That would be awesome. Good mod.

2 in a pack * 3 packs = 6 guns. Doesn't that mean you have just used one?

He probably traded it to someone or broke it, I broke my first one. Thanks for the compliments everyone. Also, there are tabs on the inside of the gray tubes where you stick in the brass, I didn't sand those out. I'm not sure if that would help or hurt the ranges.

I figured I'd ask this here so I didn't have to make a new topic.
I may have just gotten a really junky set, but both of my smdtg's are awful. I plugged the op valve on both of them, and I tried 15-20 pumps, and I only got about 30 feet (which is what I got when they were stock), and I usually get 30' from the first and last shot, but I only get about 15 from the middle shot. I then tried 30 pumps, and I still only got about 40' (and I still get the lame half distance shot). I used taggers in 3" of petg. I also tried cdtd's, and the results weren't much better. Is there something I am missing? Is it just because I'm not shooting stefans? Does everybody add 20' to their ranges?

How did you put in your new petg barrels? Did you sand out the sides? When I first screwed up my SMDTG, I sanded out the barrels, and put e-tape around the barrels and got about 20-30 ft.

I am not sure exactly what you mean, but if I understand what you are saying, I sanded out the little tabs inside the part that the stock barrel attaches to and then put petg with etape on it inside that. On the other, I didn't sand it. Both shoot about the same distance.

Hmm, are you darts a loose or tight fit? The darts I have that are tighter, seem to get better ranges. Maybe etape isn't the way to go with SMDTG, I did the exact same thing as you and got poor ranges before I did this.

Dayko: You live in Washington right? Well I get mine from MClendon's hardware. It's a local hardware store, I think they have a few in WA.

Well, my darts are a tad loose, but I also used a few that were tighter, and it got better by a little. I also tried the stock barrels with the hole glued shut, and they are pretty tight, but they still don't shoot very well. I think I am going to get a new set and mod them like this. I also ordered a bunch of fbr last night, so I can make stefans.

Don't get your hopes too high. Sometimes when I go there all they have is maybe 1-2 pieces, but then other times they have 3 pieces of each (19/32.9/16.17/32). So it's pretty much like hit and miss.

Ask them if they can special-order more. When I need a lot of brass, my local hobby store orders it direct from K&S, two or three feet to a box.
