Spring to fit under the tank firing pin
Hot Glue Gun
Take you stock big blast and unscrew it. If you are minimizing which I recommend do whatever you want to that orange ring on the front, I cut mine with a dremel.
Cut the stock barrel down, and slap whatever coupler you want on. Then for reinforcement, add epoxy putty.
Let that set.
If you can see it, I added a small spring under the firing pin and glued it to the tank and pin. This spring pushes the O-ring up against the tank making pumping easier and much more effective.
Replacing the pump O-ring or whole pump shaft. A Beserker pump shaft is the same size of a 4B pump shaft. It is a little longer but big whoop. If you are using a Orange/White 4B as I am, I suggest either just replacing the O-ring with the Beserker's or the pump handle and put it on the Beserker pump shaft.
Minimization time! I highly recommend this as I said earlier. You may have to cut the hole in the center bigger for your coupler to fit, I used a CPVC one so it required very little effort.
And there you have it! You have repaired a 4B and made it spectacular! My ranges were outstanding and it took about 6-8 pumps for the OPRV to kick in. Before that, it took around 15.
Questions, comments, flames?

I like what you did with the spring to help the tank seal completely.
One thing that was hard to notice was the spring placement because of the size of the pics. Try making them a little bit bigger next time.

Although it won't do anything to help the loading times for pages, and it takes a moment to kick in, the new forums software will automatically resize images for your screen. So no need to post tiny thumbnails that link to huge, table-breaking images.
Good to hear, thanks for the feedback everyone!

what form of ammunition were you using for your range tests?
We prefer the term "darts" rather than "ammunition" since we play with "blasters" not "guns."
