Got a stock LB on saturday at BAFF 5. Thanks Blue. This one has no barrels.

Here it is, stock. No barrels, as I said.

For this mod, you will need 9/16 and 19/32 brass. 9/16 is the barrel, and you will need more than a foot of it. You will only need about 5 inches of 19/32.

Cut 5 1 inch segments of 19/32 brass. One for each barrel.

Posted Image

Mark 4 inches away from the base of your 9/16. 4 inches worked well for barrel length.

After cutting:

Put the 9/16 in the 19/32. This is so the barrels are snug in the stock rings on the air tanks. The 19/32 fits snug in them, so this work perfectly. Make sure to super glue the 9/16 into the 19/32.

Apply super glue to the ring on the stock airtanks. Then, place your new barrel assembly in, like so. Apply some pressure while it dries. The barrel will be perfectly straight due to the 19/32 sheath. Do this for every barrel.

Also, plug the pump.

I'll post pictures of the completed project when the glue dries, and I'll get ranges in the morning.

Hit me up with a PM or comment for any questions.

I'm not sure if this is anything like the ss2, but maybe adding a check valve between the pump and the tanks would allow for greater pressure. Not sure though. Also, make sure you aren't messy with the plugging, that will dislodge the check valve if there is one down there.

I know for a fact that there is no check valve in the LB's pump system, so you don't have to worry about messing it up.
