So, lets start this off.

Materials Needed:
PBPB
Screwdrivers
Knife
Drill
5/16" Bit
3/8" Bit
O-Ring

I went to Toys-R-Us and found this:

Notice the priming handle. Here is a close-up:

Mine was defective. I was never able able to fix that, so I bought a second one and it worked.
Now, lets open it up:

Posted Image

You need the clip for the first part.
Take a knife and pry off the plastic backing so you get these three pieces:

Here is what you should end up with:

Now, take the barrels;

Posted Image

and use the knife to remove the air restricters.

Posted Image

You should now have this:

Posted Image

Remove these with a knife, and it should look like this:

Posted Image

Put on the p[lastic backing and get your drill... Those holes are kinda wimpy, don't you think?

Posted Image

Use your 5/16" drill bit first:

Posted Image

and then use the 3/8" bit:

Posted Image

Flip over the plastic backing,

Posted Image

and clean it up with this:

Posted Image

It will now look like this:

Tape the plastic backing on, and glue it on.

Great, now lets move on to the gun.

Take this piece and unscrew it. It is the plunger tube.

Posted Image

Take off the plunger head. It looks like this(1), and add an O-Ring(2).

(1)Posted Image(2)Posted Image

Place the plunger assembly back inside (be carful with the catch!!)

Posted Image

Take the tape off of the clip and put it inside. You can npw remove the yellow plastic on the light, it semi de-wimpifies it.

Posted Image
(yes, I know there is tape.)

Now, carefully place the shell on the gun and screw it closed (not up).

Posted Image

And there you go! a modded PBPB.

CQFs?

This gun doesn't use shells right? If not, this could be an effective secondary. I like the ranges and a spring/barrel replacement could add to the range.

Nice mod of a not-oft modded blaster.

How often does the clip misalign and you get a crappy shot? It looks like you would get good consistency.

The Difference:
-Guns shoot bullets that kill people
-Blasters shoot darts that tag people

I do not play with guns.

Badwrench, the electronics are just a light...

This mod would go great with the first part of this mod:

I never thought of drilling them out that much. I was always scared I would mess up the seal. Very nice job.
