I'm bad at intro's so let's get started.

Internals

First open up your gun,now that it's open put all the screws somewhere they wont get lost.Right now we are going to focus on a barrel replacement.
You can use any barrel you want but I use crayola because their cheap and it fits over the circle on the top of the plunger tube almost perfectly.
To make the replacement take your barrel material and put it over the circle on the top of the plunger tube and glue it on and put e-tape then duct tape over
the glue.

Next we will do a spring addition my combo is the Lanard x-stream air spring with stock spring.To do this unscrew the plunger head and add additional springs.

Posted Image

Now 1. E-tape the plunger to do this I wrap the plunger just below the o-ring in enough tape to be air tight but still slide through the plunger easily.
2. Next need to lube the plunger tube with your choice of lubricant I use different type's I still haven't found one I like.

Next reinforce the gun you can aluminum tape the plunger rod.Make sure that the tape does not hinder performance.

Sometimes when you run the ammo comes out of the holders,to fix this sand out the ammo holders so that cut lengths of PETG,CPVC,Brass etc. can fit then glue them in one side of the gun.

While you wait for that to dry reinforce the plunger head by applying goop,superglue your choice of adhesive to the point where the plunger rod meets plunger head.(for reference see above picture)

Now you want to band the gun to do this get your band of choice.
Posted Image
Put it through the hole in the plunger like so.
Posted Image
Stick one end through the rest of the rubber band.
Posted Image
Pull the band over the gun and let it rest under the barrel but above ammo holders.

(These steps are optional) You have 5 options left A.Close the gun and your done. B.Close the gun and add ammo holders. C.Add a paint job. D. Integrate a secret strike where ammo holders are. E. A combination of B-D

To do B. you can cut length's of C-PVC and glue them to the gun.

To do C. it should be self-explanatory but there are plenty of guides on NH,NHQ and FU.

To do D. Dremmel down the shell where ammo holders are to fit the gun and glue the secret strike to the shell on 1 side only unless you do not plan on re-opening the gun.

Ranges 50 ft flat with stock darts.EDIT: should be getting stefans soon so there will be new ranges

Thanks for reading.

I've got some questions...

Is that just the dart resting outside the gun in the first pic? Seriously, what's going on there? So you attached the barrel directly the plunger tube and removed the original crosshair pieces and whatever from the front of the barrel? Or do the new versions not have that piece?

Did you wrap the entire barrel replacement, or just the portion where you glued? I ask because again, I can't tell what's the barrel and what's the dart. Did you reinforce the catch spring with something, or does it still catch properly with the additional spring on the plunger without needing help on the catch spring?


Nitetarget... did you read to the end of the post? He stated ranges there.

Nice first post. But the cleanliness needs to be better. The pj looks like it's been on there for years ; needs to be redone. You don't need tape if you use 1 min. epoxy.

@LiterSIze
Yes the dart is there .
There is a new catch spring.
The cross hairs are removed.
The barrel is directly on the plunger tube.
I wrapped the entire barrel my brother wanted it that way.

@Shrub
I don't have epoxy.
It's just a little dusty the pj is nice when the gun is clean.

Hey actually if YOU read it says it was edited 8 min. after his post most likely adding ranges.

Sorry, but this is pretty shitty.

Whenever I mod my guns, I want them at least slightly clean. What I did to my Tech Target is rebarreled it with a Crayola. The Crayola, and probably many other barrel materials, fit right over the nub on the end of the plunger tube. I just stuck a tiny bit of hot glue around the nub, and popped on the Crayola, and let it cure for a bit. Then I hot glued around the base of the Crayola so it was completely adhered to the plunger tube. No gooping was needed as it was already a perfect fit.

Then, I just filled in the end of the barrel space with some hot glue and let it harden.

Now it looks nearly stock.

But whatever. It shoots, and cleanliness isn't a must-have.
