Alright, this is not really anything to put in the directory, but worth throwing out there for anyone who is interested in this gun. This gun really isn't anything special stock, like most guns, however it has a huge plunger tube and plenty of room for whatever kind of barrel replacement you choose. I am a fan of cpvc, mainly because of how cheap and durable it is, so as you can see I simply used that.

I used FA24's write up to guide me through the barrel replacement, AR removal, and increasing the seal of the O-ring.

What I did differently however, is keep the actual bow parts on, so I had more options for bungee placement. I also left them on just for show, a much more intimidating look. As you can see, there are 3 cpvc ammo holders on each arm, gorilla glued on, and not going anywhere. Instead of bungees I managed to find different grades of elastic tubing. The red tubing is pretty strong stuff and the green tubing is a little weaker. originally the stronger tubing was on the arms but it kept tearing them off, so i gorilla glued those on and went with the weaker tubing on the arms. the ruber bands are also helping keep the arms together, so if the glue does break, hopefully I won't get hit in the face with the arms.

I can't find FBR around where I live so I wrap e-tape around the holes on streamlines for my high power guns, which works really well.

Ranges: Flat
95ft
97ft
98ft
121ft (might have something to do with the amount of etape on dart, investigating now)

Conditions: rounded to nearest foot, slight breeze blowing from the side, done on grass so the darts did not bounce, I used a tape measure to make 4 25ft increments, I left the tape measure on the ground to measure from 100ft-125ft.

Feel free to ask questions, criticize, compliment, whatever you feel is needed.

Oh and I've been having trouble with photobucket so let me know if the pics don't work out, I will do what I can.

Good job and I wonder why FA24 hasn't been posting any mods lately maybe he's working on something big.

I don't understand how you followed my mod.
In my modification the barrel was in the original barrel.
You have a coupler? Is that coupler there just to guide an incredibly long barrel or is there a shit ton of dead space behind your coupler?

By the way, Nice vascularity.

I haven't posted that many write ups because I have been very busy lately.
The modifications continue, the write ups have just slowed down.
I'll catch up on them sooner or later.

I don't get my kicks out of you,
I don't feel the way I used to do.
I know its bad,
After what we had,
But Iím just not the angel you knew.

Forgive my spelling and grammar. I post from my cell phone a lot. Sometimes when I'm on the can at work.

Yea that was a slight difference, I do have cpvc going down the whole length of the bow like what you did, but i failed to put in that piece of wire on the back of it to keep the darts from going into the plunger tube, so now i just put barrels on it, which seemed to have given me similar results as to yours. I did not realize how much that plunger tube sucks down the dart.

Thanks a lot everyone for the compliments!

They are no longer sold in stores, as far as I know.

I guess you have some heavy duty industrial strength toilet paper holders. Do they advise you to wear eye protection when changing rolls?

They're discontinued, a promotional item for LOTR: The Two Towers. I got one when they first came out, but the internal bands snapped and I either threw it out or it's in the bottom of a box. I'm REALLY hoping it the latter.

EDIT: Damn you, Hierarchy beat me to 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.
