Today in school we finally got to give our secret santa our presents! And who knew that the person who got me was the only other nerfer in the school. He got me a little blaster called the " AIRBOW SHOTZ " This thing is Effeminate. Look it up for a picture. Its about 1 foot long when it isnt cocked. The draw is atleast 6 or 7 inches. But you have to put the dart OVER the barrel post thing. And it is a bungee blaster which is basically pull back and push foward to fire. Except the bow arms have a strong bungee cord tied on to both ends which is then attached through the thing that you pull back to fire. Any idea on how to mod it? There are no screws.

If everything is glued together, you could possibly dip it in boiling water and remove the glue to access the plunger and improve the seal, add padding, etc... You could also use a stronger bungee and maybe coupler or re-barrel it.
Just some ideas.

Well the funny thing was that I knew that I WAS NOT his secret Santa. Because he showed me who he drew, but he switched with a girl and got my name!

I modded a Just Toys Crossbow by cutting off the barrel tip and inserting Sch 80 PVC into the original barrel. I wished to keep the arrow function, so I left the outside of the original barrel intact. I just wanted to do a 1-minute mod, nothing extensive. Darts shot ~30', and arrows ~20'. You could probably do a very similar mod to this blaster, they both seem to have the same size barrel.

If everything is glued together, you could possibly dip it in boiling water and remove the glue to access the plunger ...

This is called temperature shocking. If the glue is weak enough, boiling might be all you need. Leave the gun in your freezer or ice box overnight. When you're ready, boil a pot of water, pull it out of the freezer, and drop it straight into the water.
You could also do it backwards if you lived in a snow-covered area. (Hot first, then cold.) This might be bad for plungers and other rubber parts, because they will melt/crack.
If you can find a heat gun, then you could focus on the seams, and maybe protect the gun better.
Or you could just do what Utahnerf said, put a barrel on it in ten minutes without opening it up.

Yeah, so if you temp shock it, make sure not to freeze or boil your rubber, the rubber will either crack or deform. This happens all the time in paintball guns when you shoot CO2 through a non-CO2 gun. All of the o-rings freeze and crack, and the gun becomes leaky and useless.
