I modded one of these awhile back. I cut of the main barrel and glued a cpvc coupler to it. I gets fairly decent ranges (though i've never actually measured them). As to the water gun parts, I just cut them all out. I still have the the yellow water tank/valve bit, but i've never done anything with it. Over all my only problem with the blaster is the handle too small for my hands.

You should definitely consider putting a barrel on the water part. That way you'd have two shots.

I seem to remember reading a write up where someone put a barrel on the water part and did some other things. I have no idea where I read it, though.

Tantum: That would have been Imaseoulman and his Switch Shots Maxx. I hate that gun. I owned one, but I could NEVER get the damn thing to stop leaking, even after half a bottle of goop....
I sold it in an ebay auction months ago.

JSB: Nice. I love it when people post mods for guns that haven't been modded before. This isn't really a mod, but it is a gun that many nerfers wouldn't look at twice. Nice to see the internals. I think you can hope for better ranges than high 40s though. With a plugged pump and a barrel replacement, I can see it hitting 60s.

MSDFS- Sorry you got a lemon. I love that thing. I don't use it much myself, but it's always a favorite at the wars I host. The one 'water tank' end shot is frighteningly powerful. I once landed a direct hit from 150' with that thing. I have another with a leak that I need to fix.

JSB, thanks for posting this. I've got one sitting on my work bench that I need to actually finish working on. I can't remember what I decided about the second barrel, but I remember thinking it wouldn't be easy.

As for potential, it seems to have a decent amount of air out-put. I can definitely see it surpassing 40' easily. The tank size isn't very big, but there's no dead space either. I wouldn't be surprised if a 6" barrel got this thing pushing high 60's.

The the problem with relocation of anything inside the shell is the trigger mech. If you want to maintain the "switch shots status" then you'd probably have to leave the tank where it is. Though there are probably a few alternatives.

If you have an intact silver bottle, I'm interested. I discovered after starting this thread that mine leaks.

It's a small handle all right. Many Nerf blasters are like that. But this one has decent finger grooves. I have an idea about enlarging the back of the handgrip to help it fill my hand, because then the front might be comfortable.


Ill look around, but I think I got rid of it. (I cut that whole part off of the blaster. Are you looking for just the silver part or the silver part and the part it connects into.
