This marks my first posted mod and while it is nothing fancy I don't believe it has been done before. Stock the quickstrike sucked balls hardcore. In my opinion this is mainly the fault of its horrible arrow ammo which only flies straight for about 3 inches then veers off course. However without any further delay, here is the mod.

Materials Needed:
Quickstrike
Cpvc
Dremel or sawing instrument
Hot glue gun
Pipe cutter

Step 1: Take your unmodded quickstrike.

Step 2: Using a dremel or any other sawing instrument cut the barrels off flush with the purple pieces. Then take a knife and clean out the barrels of plastic pieces (I actually cut the barrels shorter after this picture but was too lazy to take another).

Step 3: Using your pipe cutter cut two pieces of cpvc to about 3 inches long and set aside for a second. Take your glue gun and slather the purple parts of the barrels in hot glue.

Step 4: Take the cpvc and force it over the purple part of the barrel. The fit will be snug but it will go on with a little force. Finally you have have your finished product.

Ranges: About 35-40 feet using streamlines with hot glue filled tips. I couldn't take actual measurements because my toolbox got left back at home.

Final remarks: I actually like this little gun. The whole mod take like 10 minutes and it a fun little surprise to ambush my friends with. It could be redone using plumbers goop instead of hot glue but the cpvc is such a snug fit over the barrel I do not believe it is essential.

Praise? Flames?

Does it have a trigger or do you just pull it back and let go?

You just pull it back and let it go which hurts its accuracy.

Reminds me of double shot internals. Nicely done.

I think this would best be used as an integration weapon. But it can be fun to just shoot people out of the nowhere. :D

I don't see the potential for an integration in this mainly because of the lack of a trigger. Because you would have to pull back the plunger rod, it would have to be on a farily exposed part of the gun.

However, I think this is ideal to hide in your pocket when your opponents think you've fired your last shot.
Good work.

Good work.

I was leaning toward integrating it to an exposed part of the gun (of course) and having it on there fairly sturdily so it could be pulled back without snapping off. It could be used for a quick 2 shots without a trigger, they aren't necessarily necessary. Its more of a matter of personal preference, if you care if theres a trigger or not.

You can put a lever trigger on there.

A trigger that is shaped like this:


.. ____|
./
/

The /'s is the trigger, the the _'s is a connection to the |'s which hits the catch which is a groove in the plunger rod.

Man, talk about an obscure blaster! It's like a tiny Double Crossbow!


Question: What happened to the handle? Do you still have it?

It is basically a tiny double crossbow and no I don't still have the handle. It was just a molded little piece of black plastic that was far too small for my hands so I threw it away.

On a happier note I added some mini-bungees to it and it greatly improved the range!

This would be a great little gun to just slap on a primary. Got a longshot scope/nstrike sled brackets you could fashion this thing with?
Great mod, might have to find me one of these little guys.

Wow. I kind of like this little gun. Much better than the double crossbow. And good mod, by the way. It was easy to understand. And also, how much did mini bungees improve ranges?

It's not like that. I put lube on it and its the same. Its just stuck. And when I cock it back it goes farther back then usual. Also I push as hard as I can and it wont go back in. I've tried the methods and they wont work. Also pics are up.

Nice mod. Also, I want to see you or someone come up with a handle and rigger for this thing.

I no longer have a longshot to slap it onto but I might try and put it onto another gun.

2 bungees increased the range somewhere around to about 50 feet.
3 bungees increased the range to probably about 60.
Of course neither of those ranges are official since my tape measure is currently an hour and a half away but my fiance has a small one I might try and use. If I can get reliable measurements I will post them.

The only problem I have with the bungees is that it makes the gun a little hard to pull back because of the small size of the gun with such a high resistance.

I think you should go all out on this thing. Spring replacement, seal improvement, goop up those purple caps, coupler it with some nested petg or brass. 60 feet already, you could make this tiny thing a frickin primary!

Haha I like your spirit Splitlip! The seal with the hot glue and purple pieces is actually 100% tight but if I was to ever use it for a while I would take it apart and use goop so it would hold up to abuse better.I might try and do some nested brass barrels when I get really bored (too many other projects on the side) and besides with three bungees on it the accuracy goes down some. Also remember that those ranges are just eyeballed and I hope to make official ones soon so I really hope no one tries to call me out on them.

Maybe I will carry on in your tradition and make a part 2 to this mod but I wouldn't hold my breath for it.
