This is my first write-up posting so I hope you enjoy it.

My cheap, easy and quick PAS barrel
Posted Image

Its quite simple really and took me roughly 15 minutes to make.

What you'll need

1- 12 inch length 1/2 CPVC
A scrap piece of 1/2 CPVC (about 3 inches worth should do it)
Duct tape
2 of the green balls from a reactor or buzzsaw
and last but not least a dremel with a cutting wheel

First step: Getting started

Using the dremel, make some slanted cuts into the scrap CPVC around the opening of one of the ends of the pipe. This will act as your cutting tool for the Nerf balls. Be sure that they are facing the same direction.

(please forgive the fuzzy pic but you get the general idea)

Second step: Cutting the balls (ouch!)

Using the "tool" you made in the first step cut out the hole for the CPVC to go through.

Repeat on the second one.
*NOTE* Be sure to get it as centered as possible

Step Three: BRING FORTH THY DUCT TAPE!!!!!

This next step is pretty simple. Using the duct tape, wrap the end of the barrel that will be going into the gun a few times. Now taking one of the hollowed green balls put it onto the duct tape making sure it goes on very tightly and is flush with the end of the barrel.

Now for this next step I didnt measure or anything. What your going to do is put the barrel into the ball holder of the gun and mark where it is even with stock barrel of the gun. Next, using more duct tape wrap it a few times so that the tape is at the middle of the line. This is where your other reactor ball will go, again make sure it is tight.

And that is pretty much it. Just put it into the stock barrel of the PAS and go. I added the faux barrel from the Longshot front gun by just sliding it over the barrel and onto some duct tape.

Final Result

It was quick, easy and cheap to do and it gets decent ranges (farthest was a little over 100 feet with a stefan) and can easy puncture a nerf gun box at about 25-30 feet.

I hope you enjoyed this and thank you. I hope to god I'm posting this in the right section.
(And yes I know some of you are going to make this joke so allow me to do it for you. It was quick, easy and cheap....like your mom. There now no one can make that joke lol)

Pretty cool. I did the same a while back with a cosmic thruster. Also, "Welcome To The 'Haven. Enjoy Your Stay While It Lasts...."

I'm gonna be completely honest, it may not be an ideal barrel setup, but that's fucking awesome just for the fact that it's made of two balls two nerf balls.
My only question though is why cut it with the CPVC? :lol: I'd cut it with the dremel you used to cut the CPVC if you have any drill attachments for it. The foam in the nerf balls is pretty dense, so I'd think it wouldn't catch the drill too much. Even so as long as it works, it's cool.
Did you acually modify the PAS at all prior? I've never owned one of these so I don't know if it has an air restrictor within the stock barrel.

I cut it because the drill bit i have for the dremel wasn't enough and not only did it go quicker by just taking a foam plug out, it made the hole the perfect size. No the gun still remains totally stock. I hope that answered your question. This was just a quick cheap lil mod to see if it would work and seeing as how it did I figured I'd share it with everyone.

This is wonderfully creative, the first thing I thought of after this was to add a breech for a Nerf clip, I think you could easily set it up to work with the pump, or not...

I had thought about making a breech for it but I didnt have the materials at the time. I don't think you could set it up with the way I did this mod but if someone wants to try then by all means please do. All I ask is if you do please mention me :)

Awesome. This is the kind of mod I like-- cheap, quick, easy, and actually yields notable results. You may not have been the first one to do this but it's still very clever. Good job.
