After recieveing a Sharp Shooter yesterday I fell in love with it instantly! Sure its small and kinda goofy but its spring is strong, and it preforms well stock(watch the video).

Foreward:


Start by unscrewing the blaster. One thing I did notice is that the Sharp Shooter is what I call a "pistol' version of the crossbow. I mean the internals are the exact same, just different demensions and shell! (Plunger head, plunger tube, etc.)

Immidiatly grab the plunger rod and mark out a new catch almost directly after the original one. Make sure you use some perminant marker that way it will stick and wont rub off.

Posted Image

Take some sandpaper and sand down the plunger rod. Every inch! Now grab a tube of Mighty Puddy(in honor of Billy Mays) and go to town on the plunger rod, fill in every inch of space including the origianl catch. If theres alot over flowing remove it while its still soft. If you do it now it will mean less sanding later...Make sure you get both sides too. If you are really parinoid about your SSI breaking you can do the end where pull on. I decided against it because I felt it was not needed.

Posted Image

Now set aside your plunger rod while it dries and lets start the work on the plunger shall we? Chop the barrel off as close to the plunger tube as possible.

Posted Image

Go grab your file and/or dremel and slowly widen the hole until you can fit 15/32nds brass into the hole you create. I used a conical dremel bit to widen the hole at first then widened it with the file. Once that is done wash out the plunger tube to rid it of any stray plastic shavings.

Let's start on the barrel assembly.

First lets start by cutting our brass.

1 1/2 inch of 15/32nds brass
3/8ths of an inch of 1/2 inch brass
3/8ths of an inch of 17/32nds brass
4-5 inches of 9/16ths brass to be your barrel.



Take your 15/32nds brass and flare out one of the ends to recieve better air flow.

Posted Image

With your needle nose pliers in hand thread the piece of 15/32nds brass through the gaping hole in the plunger head. The next part is challenging, make sure that the 15/32nds brass is in the correct place. I did this simply by using an extremely bright light and the plunger rod asembly (plunger head pushes the brass until it's in the right spot.) Once it's in the correct spot super glue it in place.

Posted Image

Look closely you will see it get larger ass you put each size up of brass on it:

Posted Image

Get your 9/16ths brass barrel and be sure to add some tightening rings 1/2 inch from the base to keep the diameter the same when you add the barrel over the 17/32nds brass. Wrap it in etape, lether on some plumbers goob the add some PVC to cover the brass.

Go out to your workshop and flip on your dremel and make room in the shell to compensate for the extra thickness provided by the PVC. Basicly make it about the same with the ridge before it. Do this on both sides

By now your invincible plunger rod should be dry. Sand the crap out of it until it's flush with the origianl plastic.

Posted Image

Now cut out your new catch according to your previous markings:

Posted Image

Deadspace... Get rid of it!
This is going against every nerfers common sense but you must drill holes into the plunger tube. Yes into the plunger tube. Drill 1/8 holes into two sides of the plunger tube where it reduces.

Posted Image

Now there are two was you can do this. My way(pump in small amounts of hot glue and then add some toilet sponge foam gasket around the 15/32nds brass in the plunger tube OR the preferred way(drill two more holes until you have four total and pump in holt glue to reduce remove the dead space) Before closing up the gun make sure that the hot glue seals up the holes you drilled. Oh and lube it!

If you did it my way you probably got something like this:

Posted Image

With some more sponge foam rubber gasket stuff add it into the plunger head. Glue that in too.

Posted Image

Were almost done now all we have to do is worry about re assebly. Place the plunger tube into the shell and press it up against the spring rest and mark where the back ridge comes in contact with the plunger tube. Wrap it up in electrical tape where you marked it then place it in ensuring that the electrical tape hold the plunger tube in place.

I lubed it again and again, I don't see what an extra 2 centimeters does. I don't think I will cut it off.

Very clean mod. Are you looking at your 5ks sticker through the plunger tube? I would definately like to do this mod if I could find brass near me.

The paintjob is nice. I still find ramrodded pistols a hassle to use in any war situations; almost always a speedloader is superior in some fashion. Whatever works though, I guess.

It's a tube of goop.

At Kid Flash:
I had a Nite Finder that vacuum loaded my darts in a war. When I ran out of darts during a pistol round I was shit out of luck. And I could STILL out-speed reload times on a comparable speeedloader'd NF.

Vacuum loading. Very nice seal by the way.
