My idea was to do the modification I've seen which involves moving the cocking mechanism to the back by moving that string in the chamber to where it comes out a hole you make in the back of the stock, seal up the place where the shells go, then saw off most of the barrel and insert pvc all the way to the back to give it a better seal. Then use a rod to put the darts down the barrel. Do any of y'all think this would do anything for the gun? I really don't want to try unless it would be helpful.

It might help a little, but then you'd be getting rid of the one feature of this blaster that makes it stand out from the crowd - the break-action breech. The Doubleshot isn't the greatest blaster - it is easily outranged by smaller one like the Nitefinder, while things like the Maverick hold more shots. The break-action breech, which makes it rear loading, is the one unique feature of the Doubleshot - lose that and you've just got another less-than-stellar-ranged blaster capable of firing off two shots before reloading/repriming.

To answer your question directly, yes it will work. People have made these sort of "stubby" barreled doubleshots before. I have infact seen one in action. It kills the aesthetics of the gun though, I think, but does make the gun more useable.

Why would people do it if it didn't work?

According to your mom, size matters. My blaster is four feet long. What about yours?

I measured mine and I got about 11 inches.

What are you talking about? It's functionally beautiful!

Works excellently. I recommend trying it (with fixed barrels, or the 1/2" sch.40 PVC used as couplers).
