Take apart a few screws to remove the pieces, and this is what you get. It's powered by an internal bungee, not the tiny bungee strings coming off the arms (they don't flex). Sadly, by the feel of it, I'm going on a limb and saying it's a giant reverse plunger - you'll see why I say that in a bit.
Here's the front of the blaster, where the arrow goes. Since arrows only go 10 feet max, we'll just forget about those and get rid of this barrel. You can see one end of the internal bungee here.
Take 1/2 of a 1/2" PVC coupler, with the internal ridge, and saw in a circle around the middle (so it has a ring of sorts). Dremel the shell a bit, then hot glue stuff in place on the plunger tube.
Here we are with a 4" barrel. And bungees added to either side. Ranges? Grand total of...25-40 feet. Yes, for the same price, you can grab a Maverick, mod it, and have 6 shots at that distance, not one. It's pretty shitty. It retty much has to be a reverse plunger.
Well, I have a crappy blaster. May as well replace the internals...say, with a new handle, trigger, Airtech tank, and pump?....
But that'll have to wait for another day. Just remember not to buy this thing.

I agree; props on putting in the work for these blasters and high quality writeups.
Wow. The gun might be crap, but your write-ups certainly aren't. You have been quite busy obviously, are you on a break or something?

Although the nerfing will have to scale back for the next week; two tests, and Honors College events to organize. But after that, back with lots more.
