Tis mod will enable you to shoot your BBBB comfortably without its shell.

Supplies Needed: All CaptainSlugs stuff from his mod plus two popsicle sticks

Step 1: Do CaptainSlugs mod minus the part where he does stuff to the shell

Step 2: Shave the popsicle sticks down 3 in. on one half, so the triggers grooves fit over them smoothly

Step 3: Cut an inch of the end of the non shaved part and glue them as shown, I pumped my gun with the trigger pressed down while gluing so the air inside the tank didnt get hot.

Step 4: Put tape all around the pump part so the pump doest fall out. I had to reapply tape a few times when I broke the tape pulling the pump out.

I would think that this would be good if you wanted to integrate something. It is also comfortable to hold and fire, although I would put grip tape on the coupler part if I had some.

Also, I couldn't figure out how to post the images as images instead of links, When I pressed the Post topic button it said "Sorry, dynamic pages in the [IMG] tags are not allowed" Does anyone know how to fix this?

Good Work! Simple (and cheap) idea that would be really useful if your shell broke for some strange reason as well as for an integration into something.

I wish I could help you on the photos but I have no idea.

P.S. Welcome to the haven!

Don't take this the wrong way but I don't see the point of this. Why waste a perfectly good shell? If your shell was cracked or something then just use a little Plumbers Goop or Epoxy putty on the crack or broken piece.
As for the photos. Where is says in PhotoBucket IMG Code right click it then hit paste in the post. No need to put it in a IMG box or URL box.

The reason I did this was because when I put it back in the shell, no matter how much I messed with it, the trigger was always pressed, so the air went straight out of the barrel instead of staying in the tank. thanks for the photo help also.

You need to resize your photos. PhotoBucket has a resize button in the Edit options.

Also, why are you using painter's tape to hold it on. You'd have better luck keeping your gun together with spit and hope. Seriously, get some glue. Or at least some duct tape.

Alice came to the fork in the road.
"Which road do I take?" she asked.
"Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat.
"I don't know," Alice answered.
"Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."

The Painters tape isn't holding anything. It just acts as a barrier to stop the pump from falling out of it pump tank thing.

Right. It's holing the pump in. Don't use it, it's clearly not working.

What are you trying to say? The handle part/pump is very light and will only come out of its case thing if you really want it to. The tape only needs to hold up to a maximum weight of the handle part thing.

I'm trying to say stick the pump on so that it doesn't fall off when you're pumping. How thick can you be?

I believe he is just saying that it is merely to keep the pump in when moving around. Yes the tape would come off easily if he pulled back too far but if it works for him then whatever. No sense in brow beating him.

You don't get it. Everything is ONE piece, all glued together (It came like this, except for the trigger), except for the yellow handled pump. To keep the pump from sliding out while you're just moving around with it, you need a circle of material connected to the gray part, that has a hole in the middle that is large enough to allow the white plastic rod, but small enough so the orange O-ring piece at the end can't come out. That way, unless you yank the pump out on purpose, there is no way its going to come out. If you have a better idea, please tell me, because gluing the O-Ring INSIDE of the pump chamber would ruin this gun.



EDIT: Thank you Herpestidae

Almost literally anything but painters tape. You want a list?

*Glue and :
-wood
-plastic
-wire
-scrap metal
-parts of the shell

*A few screws at the very end of the tube would do it too.

You are right, I could do something hardcore like that but I'm not going to because painters tape works just fine for me. End argument?

I'm wondering why this wasn't taken to PMs about, 8 or 9 posts ago.

I like the mod, I think it looks pretty sweet. I never realized that it's all already glued together. Have you tried running and what not with it like you would in a war?
