While that’s setting, we need to work on the shell.
This middle plastic shelf needs to be removed.
Posted Image
I used 2 pairs of needlenose pliers and a knife to remove it.
Repeat for the other side.
Next, the front shelf needs to be widened.
Posted Image
Same thing, both sides.

I also cut out enough of the pump cover so that I can rotate the pump handle 360 degrees. (Comes in handy for quick pumping.)
Posted Image




Ok, now onto the barrels.
Take your PETG and test fit it in the Sch. 80.
If it is a good fit, you can leave it. If not, take some Teflon tape and wrap a little of the PETG with it, then try it. Repeat until PETG is secure. The end of the PETG should stick out roughly 1/2 inch from the Sch. 80.
I went ahead and made a speedloader for it.
Posted Image
Hot glue secures the 2 barrels together.

After the Goop has dried, reassemble the monster.

What I like about the bushing is that it looks so clean.




The advantage of having the bushing on there is so that you can use different couplers and barrels.
Posted Image


For example, my breech is threaded, so I unscrew the slip+thread coupler and replace it with the breech barrel, which has a double threaded coupler on it.

Demo vid.

1:40 is when it gets gnarly.

It gets ranges in the 100s.


I may decide to do a bitchin' PJ on this, but who knows.

Hope this gets added to the Mod directory!

Why didn't you do the shell minimization thing? I'd imagine it would make changing barrels easier.

Mostly because I like the way it looks stock.
Also, hacksaw cuts that large tend to be tedious and annoying.

You really need to work on your aim.


If you listen to the video, you'll hear that the stefan was vagina'd.
The hot glue was coming off, and we all know what that does for aim.

Wow. Funny how I am watching this for the first time now. As I am killing time waiting for my own video to upload. Which has a very similar feel to it.

Vagina'd. :lol:

I cannot believe that caught on.

That looked, and sounded like it hurt. FA, you need to start selling Balistic gel dummies as test objects, it sucks being the test subject. It's what the MythBusters use anyway.

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.

It gets ranges.


Understatement of the year folks.

Also, you never did say if it's pump is plugged or not.

Not plugged.
I figured if I didn't say anything about it, y'all would assume I left it.

Actually NerfCrazy and I kept saying that at Fall MNNO, because I kept Vaginaing arrows by shooting them out of my Roto Rocket. I also used that term when Zudikas and I were having a stock dart war with my Blastfires and they darts kept getting Vagina'd for some reason.

I just wanted to clear that up, especially with that show of power at the end.

I assume it is because the abbreviation for buzz bee big blast is BBBB. Four B's, or a quad. Quad B = BBBB = buzz bee big blast.

Or so I think.

I lubed it again and again, I don't see what an extra 2 centimeters does. I don't think I will cut it off.
