Credit given. On to business.......
I didnt take as many pics as usual, poor planning on my part. :shock: First thing I wanted to do was utilize two air bladders, since the piston-expansion uses a shit-ton of air. I had an extra bladder+casing sitting around, so I attached it above the existing bladder---using screws to hold it in place:
Both bladders were heavily banded, and obstructions inside the bladder casings were removed. Additionally, be sure to cut the protruding tips of the screws holding the casings together off, so the bladders are not damaged when they expand.....
I used a tee connector so that the pump fills both bladders. I also replaced the pump with a Titan pump--to fill the dual bladders with less pumps.You will need to cut the shell slightly, near the handle to accomadate the larger pump end. (sorry, missing pic.)
Construct the piston-expansion chamber. Two 1/2" pvc endcaps, about 1 3/4" length of 1/2" pvc, and one brass fitting will be needed......
Solvent-weld the pvc conponents together, glue the fitting in place. Be sure to drill the hole for the brass fitting with a bit that insures a nice tight fit. The hole in the piston will be at the top, right behind the clip-advancing arm.(sorry, no pic) Also, add a few bands to the piston, so aide its return.
You now have a few shell mods to perform. As you now have a expansion tank on top of your piston--you will need to make room for it as regards your shell. The expansion tank will obviously move with the piston, so be sure to make the cut in your shell match the pistons travel distance.....
Next up, the front of the shell. We need longer barrels to utilize the new found air flow---so cut the front of your shell to make room....
I chose 17/32 brass (expensive, for this mod--50" needed!) 17/32 slides into the clips with a single wrap of E-tape used to make things nice and snug.
I made my barrels 5" long. Cut your barrels, add E-tape, and superglue into your clip
Add a few strips of E-tape to the side of the clip, this keeps the clip from sliding back down. You dont want the clip to be too tight in the well---it may damage the clip-advancer. Test fit.
Finished, expensive ass clip.....
You can stop here if you like........
Though I decided to continue........
The above mods will greatly increase your range---but WILL slow your ROF and shots per pump, due to the massive air consumption. I decided to add a plan B.......I snagged the R.I.P I made a while back(http://www.nerfrevol....php?f=8&t=1269), and set about mounting it to the MS.
As was the case with Ratchet(my overhauled Deploy), I wanted the R.I.P to be easily removable. Removing two screws is all thats needed. To make this happen on the MS, simply secure two fasteners to the inside of the clip well. The fasteners have to be placed as shown so the dont interfere with the movement of the clip.....
Now, while re-pumping or swapping clips you have a 90' shooting defence.
If you place the fasteners as shown, your R.I.P will be located in a way that makes firing with the hand that holds the MS possible...WIN!
I will post a firing vid as soon as I get the part I needed from Kid Flash.
Rknight-- wow......N9---your dad is in trouble now!

And props on the most expensive MS clip in history.
