Alright I have had this off brand nerf gun called the splitshot since I was quite young and I decided to see if I can modify it. The problem is I don't know what I should begin with. The guns idea is it has two barrels that can separate at an even degree angle. There are two triggers and the one in the front controls the splitting of the barrels. The idea of this is if two people came at you from both of your sides you would pull the front trigger and one barrel would be aiming at 9 o'clock and another at 3 o'clock. This is a fun idea but pretty impractical so it doesn't need to retain that functionality. The funny thing is that the two barrels fit my stefans almost perfectly and have no shafts so I did some test firing before I opened it up. It shoots two stefans at least 25 feet I want to say more like 35. To me this is pretty impressive so somehow singling it or something would be nice. Rebarreling it wouldn't necessarily do anything but it may be needed. Here are some pictures for your consideration.

I have never seen a spring gun with tubing before but that may just be because I am new. The plunger becomes two smaller ones that instead of having plunger heads like a nerf gun they have small rubber like little cups that serve the purpose of a plunger head. i don't know if these are very efficient though. You cock it from the back and then it shoves the two plungers down two cylinders that are then connected to the tubing that leads to the barrels. The plunger draw is maybe two inches. If more pictures are needed just ask its just late at night and I don't know what I needed so there it is. Thank you for any help.

This reminds me of an SS1. Just do a spring replacement and if you can, widen the tubes. If they join at a Y, you don't have to widen or replace the tubes, but if you could, drill another hole for your second barrel and add another section of tube. The catch could be modified with a pen spring in tandem (double) with the original spring, and you can always reinforce your plunger. Search the forums for Secret Shot one modifications, or look in the directory.

TL;DR: His setup, on further review, looks somewhat like this:
____ _________
O--////C -=I======8

Where the plunger/spring assembly is on the left, C is the catch, and to the right of the catch is the Y tubes/double barrel assembly (that is severely drawn wrong).

Doing this as I speak. I have no idea when I got it...my DAD got it some 15 years ago, but that doesn't matter. Anyways, it keeps jerking around all over the place. I try to hold it with a rag...It doesn't look like...much.

I just found one of these at a thrift store a couple weeks ago; I've additional pictures of the internals and plunger assembly.

I'm not sure if mine is stock though I suspect not, because of how strong the spring is. The stock barrels are a very tight fit for tag darts, equivalent to 1/2" cpvc. Ranges for mine are about 40+5 feet. Which I found not really impressive, until I saw the size of the plunger tubes.

Your purple one appears to have similar sized plunger tubes, what sort of ranges are you getting with the stock spring?

If I am not mistaken you have a stock spring in yours. The spring in mine is definitely beefy and it has always been strong.

Looks like a large warthog.

the front trigger separates the two front barrels. They just sort of rotate is there spot basically so they are point in different directions. Which means the back trigger shoots both at the same time.

So both pungers get channelled into one barrel?

No there is one plunger that breaks into two smaller plunger that cause the air force to go through two different tubes into two separate barrels. If you look at the pictures it should become obvious.

The purpose of this thread was to ask what I should do to mod this gun. The spring is already pretty beefy so I don't think I should add more....

Maybe you should try to replace the plungertubes and plungers with bigger ones (NF,LS?) and lengthen the barrels appropriatly(?)

But again, what brand is the gun from?

That would be quite the gun for you split. Now I am unsure what it is worth and I am very interested in modding it myself because of its dual fire and beefy spring. This gun ever so slightly reminds me of a xbow.
