This writeup will show you how to rebarrel your Secret Shot 1 with 17/32 brass, and also add a third barrel.

Posted Image

Stuff you will need:

SS1
Dremel
12" of 17/32 brass
Pipe cutters
Goop
Super glue
A straw
Drill
5/32" drill bit

Posted Image

Open it up.

Posted Image

Take out this piece.

Posted Image

Cut the old barrel off, and the rubber tube.

Posted Image

Drill into the empty spot with the 5/32" drill bit. Also drill into the spot where the secondary barrel used to be because the hole is a little smaller there.

Posted Image

Super glue 1/4-1/2" of your straw on the empty spot. This makes rebarreling it easier.

Posted Image

Cut your brass into 4" pieces.

Posted Image

Goop the hell out of the orange piece then put your barrels on. Don't get any goop in the holes. I put a few drops of super glue down the middle of the barrels to hold them in place.

Posted Image

Cut the half of the SS1 shell where you need the barrel selector to go.

Posted Image

Dremel the inside so the barrels will fit. leave as much plastic as possible where the orange piece goes back in so that it stays in place.

Posted Image

Add some hot glue to the front to stabilize the barrels and you're done. If you want to wrap e-tape around the plunger head then do so. If you can find a good spring replacement then use it. With a spring replacement mine gets 40-50' flat.

Wow! This is cool! I've loved the secret shot. When you range tested, was there any difference in range between the barrels? (Noticable, not just simple range difference)

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.

I like it. If I ever find mine I'll probably be doing this to it.

Thanks for the compliments everybody.

On my first one, the third barrel got 40-45', while the others got 50'. The one I made in this writeup has more uniform ranges.

Very simple, very clever.
If I ever find a SS1, this is definitely the thing I'm going to do with it.
It's nice to see more mods of the Secret Shot series. When I did the SS2, I think the mods in the directory for these wonderful blasters could be counted on the fingers of one hand.

So.... it's a turreted Secret Shot?

Very cool. I've always loved how "nerfy" these blasters look, and that's pretty good range, too. But I must ask, is it accurate? Is it awkward at all to hold? Is it comfortable? And how exactly do you switch the barrels(as in, how does the mechanism work?)

I wouldn't say the gun in turreted because the plunger tube spins instead of the barrels. You move the ammo holder to select the barrel. It's very accurate and it's pretty easy to hold.

Very Nice. Mine was an Effeminate fail , but I think the straw will help when I get a new one. This is great. And also to those who asked this gun is VERY comfy in your hand. I would say better than a NF.

Ah shit, I hate to necro things. But, was the replacements spring found in an old box at home, or at a hardware store? If it was an ACE spring, what number was it? Also, At the end of the plunger, should I use petroleum jelly to lube the E-tape? The pipe cutters bend my brass a tad, and now the darts don't fit as well. Should I use a dremel to re-cut the brass? Now that all the questions are out of the way, I modified one of the 2 secret shots I have with this modification. It has shown major improvement and worked for me well. Expect a post in the Modification/paintjob thread from me soon.
