So I just got a DS as a back up weapon, and I was wondering if sawing the barrels off actually added to it's performance or was detrimental in some way? I don't see how the darts could bounce around and get stuck, as I've heard complained about before.

Any help?

No, i'm pretty sure its for cosmetics and minimization. I'm sure it couldn't hurt ranges though...

Actually from what I've seen it does improve ranges by 5-10 feet.

Thanks guys, guess it looks like I'll be sawing mine off.

I think I got one of the lucky ones, shoots good stock.

Yes it helps, for the same reason an LS carbine helps.

I just did this mod today. I also recomend drilling out the air restrictors in the shells. This will give you an extra 3ft.

It kind of works in the way that the Recon barrel addition doesn't work.

I don't know the physics, but barrels that the dart only slides through and isn't tight in hurts ranges.

Although that last sentence was confusing, having a 6 inch long PETG barrel or whatever doesn't hurt ranges if you have a somewhat powerful gun, but when you just have a pointless barrel addition it hurts ranges.

I hope this was understandable.

It's called friction, I believe.

It makes it smaller, but makes it a little harder to load. I think it improves the range, although I haven't tested it.

They didn't have monitors in 1920.



They did, They just called them Windows back then though.

I did it, and it works pretty good. I think it hurts the range a bit, though the end of the barrels inside is rough from smoothing burrs.

I know people that have used one and they say to go very slowly, but even going slowly cuts through it quickly

Cutting the barrel improves ranges. but you already know that. Also, if you use stock darts use taggers because they go past the plastic ring holding the shell ejection springs thus making it so they wont get caught on the ring. The darts that come with the DS are to small and sometimes get caught on the ring.

Cutting the barrel increased my DS's ranges from 5' to 10'
