The stock Supermaxx 3000 Green version:
Posted Image
Nearly all the threads that deal with this blaster recommend prying the front, orange piece off of the turret, there is a better way; it is held on by a single screw (and possibly some adhesive). Try drilling a hole in the center and remove the screw in the appropriate manner. [I didn't because I followed the other threads..]
The front:

Pry off this orange thing:
Posted Image
with a flathead screwdriver.

Then unscrew the rest of the shell. Note that some of the screws are different sizes.
Posted Image
Watch out for the metal peg thing by the trigger, make sure it is properly placed.

There is a single screw holding the front of the guts on, remove it and undo the tubing coupler: Posted Image
Remove the screw on the back of the turret advancing mechanism and then continue to remove bits until the turret is free. (all parts are necessary for turret operation)

I used a flathead screwdriver to remove these orange bits:
Posted Image
Then the four screws holding the blue sheath on. (Mine also had some adhesive holding it on.... It put up a fight, throwing it at a wall seemed to help.)

I removed the sheath and pulled of the barrels:
Posted Image
Then cut them down to about 3/4":
Posted Image

I cut eight 6" 1/2"CPVC segments:
Posted Image

Put Etape around the base of each and snugly fit them in the barrel stubs:
Posted Image

I put the blue sheath, orange part and stuff back together into the shell,

To plug the pump, fill this hole with hot glue/goop:
Posted Image
..and reassemble.

The finished product:
Posted Image

Ranges: with a loose dart I could get mid 60's to 80'.

Most of this has been done before..

Questions/Clarifications?

Nice mod but do you think you would get better ranges with a looser barrel?

Nice, glad you got this up and working. After screwing around with the one I had awhile back (a blue new style), I knew that these things had more potential than people gave them credit for. The rotation mech looks like just a scaled up version of the AT3k.

You and me, bub, next war: SM3k vs AT4k.

Maybe, replacing the barrel material (with PETG) could provide similar ranges but, whats more important is dart fit, the darts that I used had a near-perfect fit for this application; a bit loose (I could blow them down the barrel).

I am looking forward to the next MN war, this thing should preform admirably.

The ranges that I gave for this are a little inaccurate; three of the eight shots I fired bounced off a tree at 62' (5' up on it), its right next to where the measuring tape was laid out, so it's no more accurate than any of my other guns.

Oh, I didn't realize your darts fit perfect for airguns. Really clean by the way.

I'm thinking of adding a stock to it, it's a bit front-heavy.

It looks great, but it must be a pain in the ass to ram rod all those barrels.

The yellow balls are also slightly smaller in diameter than the green ones.

As he said earlier in the thread, his darts fit perfect, so he can just blow.

But ramrodding, I understand that. Just ramrodding 4 barrels on my SM1500 turret is hard, I don't even want to think about the lot of those.

How many times do you pump it to achieve maximum range?

Just 4, I could probably go higher but the valve system in it is pretty weak and I don't want This (read through the entire thread) to happen.
