Very similar to the old version.
On to the modding...
First, open it up. Nothing too tricky here, just open up the small grip first. Be sure to understand the orientation of the two pieces and their springs in this part.
Next, you open up the rest of the shell. The spring is a bit larger than it should be, so it pops up and can mess with the orientation of the internals. NOTE: The top piece with a spring near the turret is oriented incorrectly. DO NOT use this picture as an exact guide.
Even the turret advancing system is the same as the old version. NOTE: The piece incorrectly placed is in the top of this picture.
This spring is huge. I cut an inch or so off to make the task of reassembly easier on myself
The turret is pretty simple. I chose 1/2" CPVC for my barrels, so I had to cut down the original barrels. The stock barrels are tapered, so the CPVC wouldn't just squeeze in.
So cut down your barrels and Goop them in. I didn't need e-tape, but some barrel materials may be too loose to go without it. I also sanded down the tip of the CPVC to make the rear loading a little easier. I do this with many of my CPVC barrels, but it helps more here because there isn't the room to twist the dart in.
Now, you get a dremel or a drill and cut out holes in the back to rear load. I used F_A24's method of putting a permanent marker down the barrel for the correct alignment. You need to make the holes a bit larger than needed because of the gap between the barrel and the hole. The extra room allows your thumb or loading finger to move in a little more to fully load the dart. (I widened the hole from the picture after trail and error, I just forgot to snap a picture)
Now just place everything back how it was, and you should be good to go. That top piece, yet again, is placed incorrectly.
I did have a hard time getting the turret to advance correctly and now it's to the point where I have to fire slowly or it just rotates too much. Overall it's a nice blaster, but it's not built as well as the original. It also makes a horrid ratchet noise while firing, which kind of scares me...
And yes, this is pretty much the same write-up I did for the original, but I figured it would be good to get some internal pictures of this out. I haven't seen many yet.
Ranges are 50-60's.
I'll have correct pictures up within a few days. Thanks Mr.BadWrench!
