Well, first off, hi, I'm new here, and just got my posting privileges.:-)

I thought I would start with a bang, so I am posting a write up on my target tech mod. Instructions can be found here


But anyway, here it is!

Posted Image

Besides the fact I like how it looks, It packs a punch! 107 feet angled and probably around 80 feet flat.

Now, I glued the orange barrel on the front of the gun, so I can't open up the real gun, but I happened to have a spare target tech, so I will post the write up on it.

STEP ONE:

Now, Your probably wondering what all is in this gun. Here is the complete list of pieces used in the gun(with prices)

PVC: 3.00 $(10 foot long pipe)
"GOOP" glue: 3.00(I think)(Can you believe that you have to be 18 or older to buy this glue?!!?)
second spring: 6.00?(Depends on were you get the spring, I used one I had lying around, but the one from a NERF Nitefinder would also work)

All that is cheap, expect for the one odd part I used, the fake barrel from the stupid NERF Longshot pistol attachment. You could use coupler PVC in place of it, that would be cheaper. Unless you really want this thing I would used the CPVC because it would be cheaper(3.00 as apposed to 30.00)

But, if you also want a long shot then I would recommended doing a sidearm integration to your long shot, as you will have the barrel left over to use here.

One thing I forgot to add in was the gun! I used a Target Tech. I would go on ebay to get it, as you have to buy it with a NERF Target(hence the name) which makes the gun cost around 15.00$, you could also find a lone pistol from the long shot on ebay for around 6.00 making it cheaper.

If you buy everything from a store including buying the entire long shot it will cost 57.00(not including tax).

If your willing to blow 57.00 on a gun then lets go for it!

STEP TWO: OPEN EVERYTHING

First take apart the long shot pistol and salvage the fake barrel(top one that the long shot shot through), then take apart the Nitefinder and salvage the spring.

Now, put all the back togeather so not to confuse screws. Then finally take apart the Target Tech. Throw the barrel away down to the air restricter plate.(second picture). Now just remove the air restrictor(spring + spiky thinging, can't miss it).

Posted Image

Now be careful on the next one, You don't want to lose anything. Pay attention to were that little spring lands as it resets the trigger.

Posted Image

You should have this now(minus the PVC and front barrel)

Posted Image

STEP THREE: ADD A SPRING

Now, take apart the plunger and unscrew the end cap(part with the O-ring)

Posted Image

Now take out the spring and mesh the NF spring with this one. Then put it back togeather

STEP FOUR: ADD A NEW BARREL


This is the hard part(If you call it hard). First take out the restrictor plate. Rip the peg off and punch out the center.

Then cut a around 5 IN long piece of PVC. Then take the LS barrel extention piece and cut it 1/4 inch longer then the PVC. Then set that aside for later.

Posted Image

Now, take the PVC and push it over the AR plate. It is a tight fight but you can do it, then glue it on there.

Posted Image

Now glue the long shots barrel over that.

Posted Image

Now take the last piece of the barrel and glue it on to the rest of it

Posted Image

You're done with that!

STEP FIVE: REPLACE THE AMMO HOLDERS WITH PVC

Just glue PVC in there. To get the look of the painted one cut the PVC flush with the gun.

Posted Image

OPTIONAL:PAINT

If you want it to look like the first picture paint it.

I used model paints, I covered the orange with painters tape as not to get paint on those parts.

Posted Image

I should have sprayed a sealant on it because you can see some noticeable were on the handle and parts held a lot.

EXTRA MODS

To get the most out of it I would put a rubber band on the plunger.

I also sanded the inside of the PVC used for the barrel so the darts slide out easier.

YOU'RE DONE


Just screw it back togeather and put some glue on the front to hold the long shot barrel perfectly straight(or at least close to it)

I get 80 feet flat so it is a worth wild mod if you have the parts, definitely a good sidearm to have in a nerf battle.

Not to bash you on anything, I'm a newbie too, but don't post angled measurements. You will get flamed so bad if you do that. Either post flat ranges, or no ranges at all. I believe I read that somewhere (new member guide maybe?).

EDIT: He fixed it

As Jabulus said, please don't post angled ranges. They are next to if not worthless. Also, please fix your capitalization. I've been noticing a lack of that sort of thing and it's getting to be rather annoying.

Pretty clear write up. A decent first post. It has been done before but you explained pretty well. And I've never heard of the fake barrel over it, but it makes it look clean so you did do well there.

One big thing though: You have to fix the grammar. Capitalize what needs to be capitalized and so forth. Use the correct form of "You're," especially in the big bold spot at the bottom. It looks really bad, and when it's cleaned up it help with coherency and understanding what you're trying to say.

I'm not sure that the link to the instructable is needed if you posted the write up also.

Oh, you have to be 18 to buy plumber's goop because, just like spray paint, the fumes can get you as high as a kite.

The longshot part sort of acts as a coupler correct? And by the way nice mod!

Do not post distances unless you have actually measured them.
