Here's the stock switch shot--2 modules

that fit together, thusly.

Note the gate--this will limit your barrel length to 2 1/2" or so.

I only messed around with the plunger module, which looks like this when you open it.
Posted Image
Pull out the plunger, and you get this--sort of like a NF, but not identical.
Posted Image
The plunger on mine had a near-perfect seal out of the box; yours may require a little teflon tape under the o-ring. I added a 7/8" OD rubber washer to the plunger head, for padding:

Now, the tube. Grab the stock barrel (notice those holes in it?) and break it off; the end of the tube looks like this.
Posted Image
Saw that orange lip off, rip out the AR, and dremel the orange lip back until your barrel fits into it a bit. As has been discussed, you'll need to dremel this:
Posted Image
out until it looks like this.
Posted Image
Put a bead of hot glue around the orange lip, insert your 2-1/2" cpvc barrel, and add another bead of hot glue around the base. Make sure that the barrel ends up straight. Hot glue will work for this, as the barrel is almost entirely recessed. Here's the tube with the new barrel.

Reassemble and close up the module.

I wasn't able to find a spring combo I liked, so I just added a couple of fairly stout rubber bands. Here's the finished product:

Sight view. That's right; it has sights.

Ranges: Don't know, don't really care. Plenty to qualify this as my new sidearm.

How is the handle size wise? It looks short.

It is short, I just used it last night and I had my 5th finger hanging off the handle.

I know you said you didn't have any ranges, but do you have any gun that you can use to compare it too (like a NF?)

Are the springs in Switch shots the same as a night finder spring, Like how do they compare and is one bigger then another?

The handle is a bit short, but I can use it, and I've got big hands. Ranges would be around, or possibly a bit greater than, that of one of my heavily modded NFs. The Switch Shot spring is not the same as a NF spring; it's longer, with fewer coils, and the wire is a bit thinner. I would say that it takes abot the same amount of effort to compress. The bands work great on it.
