Sorry to necro, but I just BOUGHT this Rattler off Blue via an E-Bay lot.
The hot glue he used to attach the bushing adapter broke, so I took the opportunity to widen the air hole a bit then re-attached the bushing with gap-filling Super Glue Gel. The plug in the side hole came out as well, so I just left it open.
Since Blue kept his PETG barrel, I added a CPVC 1/2" coupler to the bushing so I could use a 4-inch CPVC barrel. The barrel is unglued and dremeled at both ends to facilitate rear-loading.
No ideas for a stock yet, but it makes a nifty "riot gun."
BTW, this isn't the first time this gun's been on E-bay! According to Blue, he originally added the bushing because whoever sold it to HIM neglected to mention the BROKEN TURRET, disguising the gun in the listing by cropping the picture. Buyer beware!
I'm glad you modded it more, I didn't use anything other than hot glue when I did this originally. Pics would be great though, I'm curious to see what it looks like now.
The seller I bought this from was way back in 2008 in a large eBay lot. Everything was great except for this gun, the top was hidden behind another gun and he didn't mention the turret being gone. I told him this, and he apologized and explained he knew nothing about Nerf guns, and we both left positive feedback for each other. Trying to find out who he is now is very hard to do though, but if you do, he is a good seller... but I doubt he's still active on eBay, and the lot was some collection he found in his basement or something like that, so the odds of him selling Nerf guns again are very slim.
