I recently picked this gun up it has the ability to angle the barrel while keeping the rest of the gun horizontal (it has a protractor like thing on the front to precisely measure the angle).
Materials:
cpvc
coupler
e-tape
M10 washer
super glue

Here it is unprimed.

And here it is angled and primed.

It even has realistic sights!
The internals are very simple here is the catch and trigger.[img]http://http://i333.photobucket.com/albums/m384/swadja__2008/2008_1212angleshot0002.jpg[/img]
Next I replaced the plastic washer to hold the spring in the plunger tube with a metal metric (M10) I found at Ace, to add reinforcement. I also stretched the stock spring.

Next I cut a 2.5" piece of cpvc and put a coupler on it and wrapped the coupler in e-tape.

Then to make a better seal around the hollow post I put an old stock dart in the cpvc (without the top).

Then I super glued the coupler at the front of the stock barrel.
Here it is finished.

I don't have official ranges yet because it is dark out I will post them tomorrow.
Sorry about the pic size.

I believe that is the Range Shot. Says so on Orange's Nerf Page.
Good job.

Do you know what the stock ranges are? And do you think that it would be easier to just stick a barrel in there, as opposed to using a coupler?
But very good mod, simple and easy to follow.

I think you'd get better results if you cut the tube short and shove the barrel all the way into the orange part on top. There's a lot of dead space there.

Couplers make it easier to reload because you don't have to ram rod the dart.
There isn't that much dead space. The point of the mod was to still keep the gun as long as possible.
The stock ranges are about ten feet.
