I've finally decided to do a write up. The gun you see above is what I will be working with.


Materials:
1) Screw Driver
2) Electrical Tape
3) JB Weld
4) 1 Dremel with a 1/2" Sanding Drum Mandrel
5) Strong Scissors
6) Acrylic Tubing or whatever you want to use
7) Hack Saw (I used a miracle blade)







Okay, please don't bash me. I'm very new to this and I've been browsing around the site for a few months.
I didn't want to jump right into a write up for all my mods. So with that being said, lets get started.



STEP1.
First, you will need to remove all the screws in this gun.(Including the screw that's behind the blaster and holds the battery cover.

STEP2.
On the very end of the blaster, you will find a circular orange piece. I simply pulled apart the blaster in opposite directions until the ends are free from this part.( Or you can cut it off)

Here is a look of the internals:

STEP3.
Take the plunger and remove the stock barrel. When you cut the barrel off, it should look like this:

Now take your dremel and clean up the hole until your barrel fits. Remember you don't want your hole too loose or it will fall in the plunger. If it is, take some electrical tape and wrap your tube until it is snug enough so that it is tight and centered.

STEP4.
Take your JB weld and spread it across the plunger and electric tape. The reason for that is to make sure it's
air tight. Now let the JB weld cure over night and wrap it with more tape.


STEP5.
Cut the unnecessary tube you have left over. Since I used 1" half inch arcrylic tubing I cut 9 and a half inches off.

STEP6.
Slightly stretch the spring. If you stretch it too, much it wont fit in the plunger tube and this mod will be useless.

STEP7.
Put the gun back together and before you screw it, make sure your cocking handle cocks the gun.(Trust me)

STEP8.
Tape the gun's front part with electrical tape so it won't come apart. I also taped the barrel tubing.

STEP9.
Place a stefan slight'y in the barrel and cock it.

STEP10.
Be amazed. Ahahahaha.

That's your complete writeup?

Im gonna guess that something happened and you could not finish the writeup, but you still posted it. I guess this because you included tools and materials such as a dremel, acrylic tubing, and strong scissors, and yet none of these objects were mentioned in the actual writeup part.

Also, you might want to fix some of your grammar and spelling (ie: "behind the blaster hold the batterie cover", and "batterie")

You're going to need a LOT more than that.

Unless you're doing the mod as you go along.....

We won't understand the mod unless you give us a WHOLE and COMPLETE write-up. One step isn't enough for us to understand what you did to the gun.

Nice mod. It would be a bit easier to see and understand the gun if your internals picture featured a descent picture of the plunger, the spring, and the catch.

Ranges?

Good job Redmark. Nice pictures and easy to read. I always pass these in Target, and thanks to your mod, I just might have to pick one up. :ph34r:

STEP6.
Slighty Stretch the spring. If you stretch it too much it wont fit in the plunger tube and this mod will be useless.




Never stretch the spring, it will work better for a little bit, till it gets worse then when you started.
