Angel: He created the Demond breech.
OMC: He gave me my SM500.
Larami: Becasue they created my blaster.
This is the story for a "Demond" breeched SuperMAXX 500. The reason it's a story is because there is more to this then just a write up.The superMAXX 500 was my very fist SuperMAXX gun, and that is why she and I have such a strong bond between each other (and the fact that I got it from OMC). She has been my choice of blaster that got me through many local wars, and has been with me since the beggining. Orignally I had just slapped a barrel on and never thought about it, but just today I felt I neded something faster, something cooler, and hell something with brass! But that's where the story ends, the story isn't finished... or is it?
Now that the silly ol' sob story is over with onto the mod:
First start by sawing off the original barrel as close to the orange ring as possible.Then sand down for looks.
Then grab your piper cutters and your PVC and cut a 1 inch piece off.
Next take you 15/32nds brass and mark it at 1 1/2 inches, then hack it at the mark. Hacksawing brass is harder. but keeps its demensions the same, where as piper cutters distort it.Please remember when hacksawing you will get messy cuts, but that is easily solved by some fine grit sand paper and a sharp knife.
Wrap it in some E-tape at the base intil it fits inside your PVC. Then goop it up and shove it in there!
Now if you have done your match correctly, the 15/32nds brass stocks out of the PVC .5 inches. Also fill any extra space in the PVC with hot glue to ensure it's air tight.
Take your newly made assembly and test fit it all the way into the back of the barrel. Cut your self a 3.5 inch lenght of PVC and put it into the barrel ontop of the 15/32nds PVC assembly in the back and get ready to cut out your dart slot. Take your dart and press it as close to the orange rings as possible and mark out your dart slot then cut.
Then get your 19/32nds brass and cut it to the same lenght as the piece of PVC you just cut. Now mark that piece to fit your maximum sized darts then cut it out too.
Place the 19/32nds brass back into the piece of PVC and test it to see it it's flush with the walls and can fit your darts, if not sand/ cut until it does.
Now cut 1/4th of an inch of 9/16th's brass.
Then 1/4th of 17/32nd's brass.
And 1/2 and inch of 1/2 inch brass and then put them all together to get this assembly:
After that is made up lather on some glue(I used JB Weld) on the outer piece of 9/16th's brass and glue it into the proper end of the breech assembly. Creating this:
Now your almost done, the rest of the mod is pretty self expanitory, but I'll trype it up anyway.
Set the breech part aside and grab the 15/32nd's stub/PVC assembly. All you need to do is wrap it up in E-tape, then lather on some plumbers goop and shove it all the way down to the bottom of the original barrel. Also make sure to add some goop to the bottom of the PVC too to help it stick, remove some dead space, as well as seal it in. Make sure it doesn't glue the firing pin or anything like that.
Once done it will give you this when looking down into the barrel:
Nothing different from the first pic like this one. Now take the proper end of your breech assembly and wrap it up in E-tape and add some goop and place it into the barrel aswell, making sure the 1/2 inch stub of 15/32nds brass goes into the 1/2 inch brass in the back of the breech creating an air tight seal! Now just add a 9/16th's brass barrel and the modification is done.
But this is not where the story ends. After finishing this project I pondered about what ranges it would get, so I pumped the blaster up and gave it a dry test fire to see if everyting was in working order and as I pulled the trigger a strange noise bellowed from the innards of the blaster. Then I hurridly tryed to shoot a dart, but nothing would happen, no air, no pop, no nothing. Upon further inspection I found that the firing pin broke INSIDE THE TANK! Then She took a turn for the worst. Her ceck valve broke! Now she is just a shell of her former self, broken beyond repair. She has served me well for as long as I have taken custody of her. She will be cremated, to come back once again, stronger then her former self, with the experiance, courage and strength she didn't posses prior to her tragic death. She will be loved and remembered as long as she is remembered in all of our hearts. RIP
Ranges, finished product, and a paintjob will follow once I recieve a new Supermaxx500
