Alright, the gun we'll be working on today is the Lock n' Load.
This mod is for incorporating a 10 inch bungee cord to your gun instead of a spring replacement/addition, so you may be able to skip a few steps.

Materials:
Dremel
Hacksaw
etape
sealant tape
Plumbers Goop
PETG
1/2 inch PVC
Glue gun
10 inch bungee
keyring ( or whatever)
useless FBR (if you want it to be silenced)
Very skinny, but still strong wire (unraveling a small spring would work)



Step one: Opening the gun

Start by opening the goofy lime green cocking handle on top of the gun.
Posted Image

On the right side of the gun, a spring will be attached to the gun with some hot glue, yank it all off.

Next, lets open this bad boy up.
Posted Image



Step two: Barrel replacement

Start by cutting off the barrel at the second plastic ring
Posted Image


Get yourself your dremel and a skinny drill bit such as this one
Posted Image

My dremel has a crap load of settings, I recommend using a fairly low one, so you don't end up over sanding/cutting your barrel up

Should look something like this when you're done
Posted Image

Next, cut yourself a 4 inch piece of PETG, and a 4 inch piece of PVC

Take the end of PETG you're going to put in the plunger and cut 2 very small slits in the end, opposite of each other. Take a skinny piece of wire and place it in each slit.
Posted Image
(sorry if it's not easy to see, it IS clear plastic)

Get yourself some sealant tape and wrap it around the wire and lather some goop all around the end of the barrel
Posted Image


Gently twist the barrel down into the plunger, but be sure not to go too far
Posted Image

Be sure to check that your wire is still in place

etape your PETG a bit and lather some more goop on the entire set up
Posted Image


Slide your PVC over the set up as far as it'll go
Posted Image

Get your dremel out again and widen the hole for the PVC
Posted Image


Step three: silencing

Get yourself a glue gun and that FBR I was talking about and cram it anywhere it can fit WITHOUT hindering the gun from being put back together
Posted Image

Be sure to check every so often to make sure it's still able to go back together



Step Four: Bungee addition

Get your dremel and small holes on both sides of the guns right here
Posted Image

Put your gun back together after adding some etape to the plunger head and adding better springs for the catch/trigger.
Dremel the plunger rod at the end to fit both the bungee and keyring (or whatever you choose)

(reach my picture limit I guess)


Ranges:
54
58
62
60
54
59

Average: about 57ft
I'm sure this mod can be varied up to get better ranges. Putting holes in the tip of the gun and attached the bungees there, shorter/longer barrel. Who knows, I'm happy with it though.

Comments n' such?

It's such a simple gun, there's not really too much to mess with differently if you're a nerfer who uses PETG, and he's not the only person who uses red fbr either haha
Thanks though.

I don't mean to burst your bubble. But I don't think it gets any more in depth beyond a full blown video tutorial.

You also claimed to be the first one to mod a Supermaxx 1000 because we were all chicken.

I would like to introduce you to a little ongoing project of mine.
It is called the Modification write up directory.
There you can see all sorts of mods that have been done here at the Haven.
This way, the next time you make a claim to be the first at doing something. You can double check here so you don't look like a fool.


On a positive note, I liked the write up. 95% clear photos, believable ranges.
Good work. I will add this to the directory.

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.

I wasn't really saying I was the first, or at least that wasn't my intention. I knew well enough a good handful of people have modded it. I was referring to that fact that a good amount of people have an SM1k, but refuse to do anything with it because it's so rare and fragile. Once again, I'm new to this online nerfing community, and I do forget to make myself completely clear with what I'm saying, and I apologize.


Second, I was actually making fun of myself with the whole "in depth for once" being because the few mods I've done so far on this site, weren't very in depth. Yet again, at fault of me not watching my words, and yet again, I apologize.

I'll be completely clear and hold back my puns and jokes from now on I guess.

Easy to follow, good writeup. You might want to not use flash and use macro on your camera.

My camera is utter crap and if I don't use flash or use macro, the pictures turn out blurry to the point of no return.

Your barrel looks a tad long, but that's just my opinion, you may get better ranges with a 3" - 4" barrel. I personally use a 3.5" barrel on mine and I love it. Yours is very nice and it probably fits the way that you wanted it. Just offering some constructive criticism.

Yes it's Angels mod just a lot less wordy... I like it not that I don't like Forsaken Angel24's it's just his is so wordy so this mod is just easier to follow also I would reinforce the part that you put the keyring on the one I had broke.

People have been doing this for just about as long as they've been replacing barrels in Nerf guns. Cx's Mod in particular seems to be overlooked quite often. While FA provided a very nice write up, whether you use Petg (also a Cx contribution to the sport of nerf) cpvc or petg, my co-founder really did it first. Now I'm not trying to poo-poo this writeup, or that of FA, but it irks me when the guy who gave this community so much is ignored. Carry on.

If you didn't notice, this topic is almost a year old.
