Basicaly I had a spacer behind the spring(its a heavy duty spring) to fully compress it when primed but it caused the pin that pulls the plunger rod back to break off.

Theonly parts needed is a screw and a nut and maybe an extra spring if you want.
So I decided to lengthen the pull stroke becuse that was the main problem with this gun, the plunger head stops way before reaching the barrel so all the air is not forced out the plunger tube. I moved the cocking pin forward about a little more then a inch using a screw with a nut on the end.
Posted Image

then I sanded down the stops in the pull rails like this, they were just under that hole in the side
Posted Image

then sand down the insides of the shell so the screw won't hit it.
Posted Image

now when you pull it back to arm you can see the plunger rod inside
Posted Image

I put a coupler on and filled the plunger heads holes with hot glue not sure if it will help but it cant hurt.
Posted Image

I then found after arming that the pull did not go all the way to back to original resting position because the plunger rod was hitting the new priming screw so when I pulled the trigger the rod hit the screw before coming to a rest and this was the result.
Posted Image
so the slit in the rod needs to be lengthened towards the barrel(pic comming)

Now it gets ranges like a BBB if not better, I think this gun has a stiffer stock spring

Good mod on an unknown gun ,or at least to me. May I ask where you got this off brand BBB? Also is this a new or old gun?

This is a knock off airzone gun. They sell it in stores around me (TRU, Walmart) for the same price as a BBB (19.99). I didn't think it had much potential, so if I wanted a BBB, I bought a nerf BBB. I may reconsider next time.

Nice moddin. These look pretty interesting. Maybe better integration possibilities then on a BBB, With its bigger looking body structure.

Sometimes finding a BBB on the shelves can be a PITA. So hitting up TRU for one of these is a good alternative.

Pictures taken from Pointblank and Penguin807 mods.

The scorpion bow is NOT a knockoff. It uses entirely different engineering inside, the plunger tube is the same size, the ranges are similar and they both resemble a space bow or something. Those are the only similarities. I actually prefer the scorpion bow, due to it's simplicity.

Damn it Foamfoot. Why is it that you kill every good topic with a retarded response a few days late.

The only benefit or real difference I see is that the SB doesn't have those stupid side catches that tend to make BBB's not want to return to their start position.

I have this gun. I was forced to buy it since after looking at four stores, but not a single BBB. Never mind. I got the gun to work.
