If I see another one of those in a value village I will purchase it so I can make another destruction video.

I am a little jealous! I would love to have one of those guns! Are you planning to modify it?

Yes sir, New O-ring, Barrel replacement, Spring replacement was impossible. Ar removal and it only got like 10 feet with a tagger dart.

It went right into the trash.

I hate mods that fail.

I once modded a First shot with 9/16" brass.
It only got 40 feet. Before the dart landed the gun was on it's way to the top of a school roof.

My question is ... would anybody even care, if I replaced the cylinder and spring, and could get maybe 65 to 70 feet?

I would be interested, yeah. I love the look of this gun, always been a fan of transformers anyway. Too bad it's internals suck something fierce. Maybe I can find one of my own and gut it or do some integration.

I saw one of these at a flee market in Charlton, Massachusetts. I thought it wasn't worth it and didn't get it. So is it worth it? Ranges?

I had similar results with this:

I picked it up for $2 NIB at a Goodwill. Fucking awful. It used goofy-ass Megas and even after all the mods (AR's take out, new springs, etc.) it still blew.

Translation?

I think that they are actually worth keeping for indoor wars. And even in close range outdoor wars.

I think that keeping older blasters around is definitely worth it. I for one, would welcome a write up on plunder replacement. I've got a few of my own plunger replacements in the works, and it's always a good option for otherwise comfortable blasters.

I've always found that the most difficult part of a plunger tube replacement, is getting the matching plunger head. Making space and finding a tube are simple, but many times you have to keep the same plunger, especially in a gun like this. As such, joining the matching plunger head to the plunger may require lots of work, and durability is often compromised, especially with a decent strength spring.

I don't think you understood. You need the matching gear teeth on your plunger rod. You're not going to be able to machine them there into a nylon rod, and why would you even try that, when you already have the molded teeth in the original rod to work with. If that's what you meant by "special parts," the teeth are not on the end of the rod at all, so I have no clue what you're talking about.

As for the reinforcement, that is also not the point I was getting at. You need an actual plunger head, that holds an o-ring, or skirt (or mass of e-tape, though I recommend against that. FA doesn't, so you decide), that matches the new plunger tube. The weak point is not along the rod (such as in a triple night finder), but at the joint with between the plunger head and plunger, where the pieces are not molded to fit together as in a stock gun, and where the entire force of the compressed spring is exerted.

Anyway, they're just notes for the mod. There are of course practical solutions to them, but those are just the major problems you can expect to encounter.

I don't see how attaching a plunger head would be so hard. You could drill a hole slightly smaller than the screw you want to use and screw it on, what are the complications?
