this mod is a very simple one which took me 10 mins to do. Provided that you have the same tools it shouldn't
take anyone too long to make.

First off you need:
a multi-purpose dremel
hot glue gun
6 in. 9/16 brass
5 in. 17/32 brass
2 small rings of 1/2 in. pvc

well to start off here is the insides of the gun:

the first thing that you should do is cut off some of the yellow piece to make room for the loading area as shown:

then you want to cut off the orange tip to get into the yellow barrel piece. After you get the barrel open take out the shell ring and spring, and take the 9/16 in. brass and put he pvc rings on it to be put into the place that the shell ring was as shown:

now take the 17/32 brass and cut a tray into it approx. 1.5 in long and smooth out the edges. cut out the rubber endcap on the loading shaft and dremel a little around the edges so that the brass can fit inside a little ways as shown:

make sure that the tray is facing up while the air hole is to the right like in this picture:

now after you glue that in and the glue cools all you have to do is put the gun back together. The gun can now be loaded from the top like so:

There you go

i have not tested the ranges but i can give a photo example. The gun could fire about half of this hallway before and now it can travel the distance without dropping.

before anyone jumps on me about copying others ideas i must put out that until after i made this mod i had never seen the angel breech.

questions comments or general feedback is welcome. Enjoy!

Damn it, you beat me to it!

Nonetheless, nice work on it. I've got to get to work on mine one of these days.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. A good nerf gun is like a good woman. It shouldn't require extra lubrication.

Nice mod, very well done.

The only thing I have to say is that in order to do this you sadly had to sacrafice the guns most unique feature; the ability to use a clip and have the shells eject out the side, which in my opinion the the only upside of this gun.

What is the best way to go at removing a stump without any power tools? Thanks ahead of time!

Um... No he didn't

I've had the pleasure of having to go up against one of Apollo's RFRs... it still has quite good ROF for it's size, and I tell you, it shoots considerably better than before. And anyone who thinks that using shells is a positive function in ANY nerf gun, must not understand how absolutely useless and cumbersome having shells is at a real nerf war.

My cousin tried this, but for some reason with different sizes of CPVC. Let's say it didn't really work, and I thougt re-breeching this was almost impossible. Good job though. I would suggest making those dremel cuts a little cleaner next time to make sure you don't shred your darts. It's happened to me. It sucks.
EDIT: Your cuts are fine, I just looked at them again.

Cool mod. I also recommend that you do this mod to change the Lever action into a bolt action. I think it makes it easier to reload and prepare to fire faster than the lever when single-loading.
