First off, I did the basics. It has a spring from some old dart gun I used to have that broke (it was intended to kill moles or squirrels, so the spring was pretty powerful), and a stock maverick spring. Covered the plunger head in electrical tape and added some lube.
So there's the parts of this mod I figured did not require any pictures.
Next up is barrels. I chose CPVC, but I have a couple extra rattler "clips" that I'm going to put PETG into instead when my new shipment arrives.
So get your CPVC, and cut yourself 4 pieces, all about 2 and a half inches
Wrap up one end in electrical tape and stuff it into the stock rattler barrel.
Be careful, CPVC can leave some gnarly cuts, so personally I used a little assistance to get them down all the way.
Your new and improved rattler barrels are done.
Now, on to the trouble of aiming a rattler.
We will now be adding a stock. Keep in mine, there's a million ways to do this process, this is just my sloppy way of doing it.
Get your dremel or drill and make a hole big enough for your stock to enter the rattler's shell.
Now I made myself a stock contraption of PVC, CPVC, zip ties and electrical tape. Amazing, I know.
Haven't gotten any measured ranges, but it looks to be about 60ft using stefans. I'll get some measured ranges as soon as I can.
All and all, I'm damn impressed. A lot of people look down on this gun, but if you play your cards right, this could actually make a half decent primary.
Comments? flames? suggestions?
I'm a pretty veteran modder and nerfer, but I am new to this whole online nerfing community, if I've said anything that sounds "noobish", just politely inform me and I'll be sure to duly note it.
