Now, I know that singled Titans are always banned at wars and I can see why. Of course, they are just too much fun dicking around in your backyard with. Since my yard is somewhere around 120' from house to fence, I can just hit Coke cans and shitty CDs while I'm bored.

One thing I didn't like about the Titan is it's reload time. *20 pumps, insert dart in barrel, ramrod dart, pull trigger, repeat* was just getting annoying. Of course there's no easy way around the pumping, so I decided to make loading easier.

This is all VERY simple and can be done easily if you follow the instructions. I'm not sure if this has been done before, but I searched and couldn't find anything.

Materials:
- A Titan
- A Dremel
- A Hacksaw, sandpaper and a file if you do not have a Dremel
- An Exacto knife
- 1' or more of 9/16" brass
- 1' or more of 17/32" brass
- Glue of choice (I use Plumber's Goop)
- Hot glue gun (if you're planning on plugging the pump)
- A roll of E-tape
- 1' or more of 1/2" Sch. 40 PVC
- Safety glasses (you will be cutting PVC and brass, I would recommend it)


Okay, first remove the stock "barrel" (it should unscrew, if not cut it in half) and cut down about 1/4" of the threaded piece:

Bust out your Dremel and sand it out until it can fit 1/2" PVC well (PVC won't be in it, but you shall see):

Posted Image

Take your 17/32" brass section and cut out a half-pipe about 1.5" from one of the ends. Wrap E-tape around said end until it fits snug into the threaded stub. Tightening rings might be useful too:

Now, find that piece of 1/2" PVC I mentioned in the materials list. Cut out a 3.5" section at one end, this will be the outer protective barrel of your Titan:

Posted Image

About 3" from the other end of the pipe, Dremel out a small strip so you can attach a dowel or something of the like to simplify the opening of the breech. Note that I cleaned it up and widened it slightly after this was taken:

Posted Image

Take your section of 9/16" brass and wrap E-tape around one end until it fits nicely into the PVC (No particular length, E-tape thickness varies). This isn't for sealing or gluing, just to keep it all centered in the PVC:

Posted Image

Put the 9/16" over the 17/32" so that the e-taped ends are on opposite sides. insert the new barrel in the PVC to see how well it looks/fits:

Posted Image

Remove it and pull out your Plumber's Goop. Put glue on the E-taped end of the 17/32" and insert it into the Titan barrel stub:

Posted Image

Let it all dry and then put the 9/16" brass over it. Fit on the PVC sheath and apply some strong glue to where it meets the Titan barrel stub (Goop might work, but just to be safe I added a bit of Crazy Glue so it would hold):

Now take a small piece of dowel or the like and sand down a curve on one end so it fits nicely on to the 9/16" brass:

Posted Image

Glue it on and check out your finished product. Reload time will increase and you can plug the pump if you want to (I did, but I just wanted power out of it). I hope you children weren't expecting much, combined time it took to do this was about an hour and a half.

Ranges are typical:
152'
154'
163'
169'
161'
153'
162'
168'
159'
163'

1604'

Average: 160.4'


Again, nothing special, just a fun little side project while I work on my latest killing machine. I sold this fucker to a friend about two weeks ago (it's not that new) for $50, so I'm happy I did it. I also got this Titan at Goodwill for $0.50, so it's well worth it.

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.

That. is. Awesome. Now you need to add some sights so its actually accurate to make up for the horrible reload time. Plus a sick paintjob and you got yourself a monster of a gun.

Nice mod. Simple yet vary effective. All some would need is to hook that up to a HPA tank and they would have an awesome long range primary.

Wow, I had almost that exact idea about a year ago, I just didn't have the tools or materials to do it. Good job on that anyway, but doesn't the dowel have some problems staying on the brass? I had that problem with my prototype.

On the side of every nerf gun is "do not modify the blaster or darts in any way". (insert number of nerfhaven members here) aren't listening

Before everyone flames the shit out of you, let me help.

You probably screwed it too far. When you screw it in fully, the "barrel" will get locked onto the tank. I haven't found any ways of removing it, though...

A common problem for those yet to grow muscle.

Just turn it to the right. Do it hard. You will hear a click and then it will go back to being loose again.

I just did this on both my blue and red Titans to make sure.

Just twist the barrel off really hard. That has worked for me on a few goodwill titans.

And you don't have to post in a topic to get a question answered, you can always pm somebody about it, like I did. And correct me if I'm wrong, but if you're looking down the barrel then you should twist it to the left, not right, unless they thread screws backwards up there in Canada. It might seem as if the plastic will break, but if any plastic does break it will only be around the immediate area and will not stop you from screwing it back on.

Turn left as if you were holding the gun in the other hand aiming away from you.

Yes, they are standard right-hand thread. Which means Righty tighty, lefty loosey! This can also be applied to political parties.
