Alright, I haven't posted anything useful in a long time, so I figured I'd post a write up.

This will be a full instructional guide on how to do the following mods to your LBB.

Materials needed:

-Aprox. 15in of 1/2in PVC
-(2) 1/2 in PVC coupler
-1/2in of 1/2in CPVC
-12 in of brass (or any barrel material that can easily fit inside of 1/2 PVC)
-Hot Glue
-Super Glue
-Any other preferred adhesives
-1/16in foam sheet
-Dremel
-Dremel: Sanding Bit
-Dremel: Cutting wheel bit
-Lanard Blast Bazooka
-Screwdriver
-Electrical Tape
-Rubber Safe (In this cape, e-tape safe) lubricant

That should be all...let's get started. First, buy a LBB. This is the best stock picture I can get you, since I took all of these pictures after modification.

Posted Image

Now I do not have a picture for the next step, but the next step is to open up the gun, and cut off the stock orange barrel about 1/3in away from the lip of the air tank. Now, lets assume that you did this step, and then closed your gun back up.

Now, Cut where the line is shown. If you are looking at your gun from the inside, your cut should line up with the wall separating the front empty shell piece, from the section with the internals.

Posted Image

Now, your gun should look like this. (this picture was taken without the internals inside, so don't mind the absence of the pump and the trigger.)

Posted Image

Open your gun back up (if not already opened) and pull out the air tank. It should come out as one piece with the pump and the trigger. Once you have your tank out of the shell, glue a 1/2in PVC coupler to the tank. Center it as best as you can, so that the stub from where you cut off the original barrel, is seen down the center of the coupler. Use hot glue and super glue or whatever the hell you want, until your satisfied that the coupler ain't coming off.

Posted Image

In order to get the internals to fit back into the gun, you have to sand out the center wall on the inside, that used to surround the stock barrel. Do this to both sides.

First half (Ignore the red foam for now)

Posted Image

Second Half (Once again, ignore the red foam for now)

Posted Image

Now, your internals should fit perfectly, and the coupler should sit nice and happy inside the are where you just sanded off the wall.

Posted Image

Now, we move on to plugging the pump. To do this, you must carefully use your dremel to cut off the end of the gray piece that holds the pump in the plunger tube. When you make this cut, make sure that the plunger head is pushed all the way into the plunger tube so that you don't risk cutting into it. This picture should help.

Posted Image

After you make that cut, you should be able to pull the pump all the way out, and get access to the over pressure release valve.

Posted Image

Now, plug the OVP with hotglue. To do this, you must fill the CENTER hole on the plunger head (NOT THE TWO SIDE ONES), and the 4 holes on the side of the shaft.

Front:
Posted Image

Side:
Posted Image

The last internal step, is to glue the trigger to the air tank pin. The lbb is known for its weak trigger, and glueing the trigger to the pin reduces stress on the part of the trigger that frequently breaks, and balances the stress on the entire trigger. MAKE SURE NOT TO GLUE THE PIN OR THE TRIGGER TO THE TANK

Posted Image

Now your internals should fit nice and cleanly back into place. We are now done with internal mods.

Posted Image

After you close the gun up, their will be a rectangular hole left from where you sanded down the internal wall to fit the coupler in place. To cover up this hole. I cut a piece of 1/8in foam sheet to the shape of the front of the lbb, and simply glued it onto the outer ring of the shell. Then, I cut a slit down the center with an exacto knife so that the gun could be opened without tearing the foam. This picture should explain.

Now onto the breech-

First, take about 13in of 1/2in PVC and cut your breech slot about 3 inches from the back.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Now take your 12in piece of brass or other preferred barrel material that can easily fit into 1/2 PVC. I used this mystery metal barrel that I broke off of a Williamsburg toy musket. It fits stock darts and my stefans perfectly. Anyways, take this 12in section of barrel, and glue a 1in section of 1/2in PVC on to one end.

Posted Image

Now take a 1/2in PVC coupler and put it onto the end of 1in PVC that you just glued onto your barrel.

Posted Image

Now take your 13in section of PVC that you cut the breech slot into, and hammer a 1/2in section of 1/2in CPVC into the short end. This piece of CPVC stops the inside barrel from moving to far back, and prevents darts from falling out, or whatever the hell that can happen back there.

Posted Image

Now take your inside barrel (the 12in of brass or whatever) and line it up with the outer PVC section. Tape two sections on your inside barrel as shown in the picture below. Use enough tape to create a good seal.

Posted Image

Now put the two barrel pieces together. Lube the inside barrel as much as necessary to create ease of opening and closing.

Heres the finished breech.

Posted Image

Heres the breech open. To open, simply pull on the PVC coupler at the front.

Posted Image

Heres the breech closed. To close, simply push on the PVC coupler until the taped internal barrel seals with the end of the 1/2in PVC external barrel.

Posted Image

Heres the breech with a dart loaded.

Posted Image

To attach the breech to the LBB, simply twist it into the guns coupler that you glued on earlier. Obviously, since the LBB has a coupler, it can also accept a wide variety of attachments.

Here is the final product.

And that's it. I personally found this mod to be quite simple. And hell, if you mess it up, the guns only $10, no big deal. This is my FAVORITE primary, and it gets amazing ranges with amazing accuracy.

Range: Around 110'-130' flat
Perfect Accuracy Range: Accurate at about 100' to 120'

This is a very easy to understand write up. And very good.
I like your simple breach idea. How airtight is it? And how hard is it to slide the 1/2in PVC cover?

Thank you very much. And the breech is very simple to slide. After I added a sufficient amount of tape to create a good seal, I used rubber safe lubricant on the internal barrel section, and it slides very easily without coming out of place (when the breech is closed) or losing its seal.

You should add the lube part into the write-up. I think you missed it. Correct me if I am wrong.
Also you should use silicone lube. It doesn't deteriate(sp?) rubber or plastics. Again correct me if I am wrong about that too.

Im not sure what kind of lubricant I used, but it said RUBBER SAFE in bold on the front. Also, I did include the lube part in the write-up =]. Right before the finished breech picture I stated:

"Now put the two barrel pieces together. Lube the inside barrel as much as necessary to create ease of opening and closing"

Great mod, the only thing I can say would be to use brass to create a seal rather than e tape.

Legallity issues? As in real laws or war legal?

On topic, how many pumps do you suggest pumping it? Is it the same for a BBBB?

You might want to reinforce the pump with aluminum. It's broken on me before. Other than that, nice mod.

Steal it from him, and mod it. Thank you very much, I appreciate the comments.

By the way- I added a second video.

Nice easy to follow write-up.

I'm hoping to get a couple of Big Blasts soon and plan on doing something like this to one of them.

Once again great mod.
