I was also going to go Carbon on this one, but decided against it because it felt so nerfy in my (rather large) hands when stock.
PLEASE DO NOT POST UNTIL IT IS DONE- THERE WILL BE A FINISHED PRODUCT PICTURE.
Anyways, here it is.
Cut off the original barrel.
You might have noticed that the hole which the air comes through is rather small, so we have to widen it. Drill through with your favorite bit, but hold the plunger back while doing so to avoid drilling into the plunger head. Also try to avoid drilling so fast that the plastic melts, as it could completely block the hole (youíd just have to drill through again, but it saves time).
It should look something like this when finished.
Now wrap e-tape around the barrel stub until a three inch piece of Highest Grade Premium Thick Walled OMC PETG will fit snugly on.
Now Goop/Epoxy it on. Hot glue might work too, due to the small and slow air-output of the gun, which weíll change laterÖ
Now flip it around and look at the cocking handle/thing.
Cut two thinnish slits in it, big enough for a kitchen rubber-band to fit on (the ones you get at Roche Bros./ whatever supermarket you go to).
Now you can put 2-3 rubberbands on (three shown).
After about 5 shots during range testing (with three bands on) the front end of the Hammer blew off. Itís likely itíll do this on others, so I remedied the situation. First, take a look at both parts.
You can take this opportunity to widen the hole even more.
Now rough up the endcap and the place it slides onto.
Then glue it on with a strong adhesive (I prefer Goop). To make sure it stays as far back as it should use your bands and wrap them around the front part and the end. For cosmetic purposes make sure that the Ďsightí lines up between the ammo holders as it did originally.
Darts hit 45í consistently with 3 bands, most reach around 50-53', and the max Iíve had is 60í. Not bad, if I do say so myself...
Again, I apologize to those of you who are disappointed with this mod, but hopefully Iíll make up for it in the near future.
