Note: this modification is a collection of posts, all spaced months apart. Each stage can be done by its self, or you can do all of the mods together.

I got this gun a couple months back, opened it up and was depressed. The plunger tube it has is smaller than a night finder plunger tube. I did a mod and got 20 ft. ranges. Now I did a different mod and got 50-60 ft. ranges.

Materials needed

dremel/pipe cutters
your choice of glue
cpvc coupler.

First open up your hunter and don't pass out because the plunger tube is so small. Take out you plunger tube and cut off the tubing leading to the bolt-action part and glue on your coupler.

(I got board a month back and wrote Tech in it since it was ope for the 2 months)

Now cut the front of the gun off that is in front of the plunger tube and dremel it out until your coupler can fit inside it.

Posted Image
(Now that I think of it I should have got a side view but hopefully you will understand what I mean at the end)

I added an extremely weak catch spring to the catch because mine had trouble catching and I did not replace the plunger spring.

Posted Image
(Wow that picture is really blurry)

If you planned to do the whole breach thing that was on nerfhaven and then your bolt broke you will have to sand out the back a little where the bolt goes.

Do an air seal improvement and now you are done!

With a 5 1/2 inch barrel I got between 50-60 ft. but it didn't make that nice pop noise that lets you now you have the right barrel length. For half an hour work and no spring replacement I'm happy with this gun and its ranges.

Okay, I know this thread is old, but I feel that these modifications to the blaster are very important.

Part 2

Materials
A screw
1/2in. Wooden Dowel

tools
Dremel
1/2in. Drill bit
A drill bit slightly smaller than your srew
A drill

The first thing I would like to say is that you can't replace the spring because the plastic used on this gun is extremely week (including the shell) and the compression rate of the stock spring is very low, so it would be hard to find a spring with the correct compression rate.

First, you will want to either dremel or brake off the handle peice (mine broke from a stronger spring).

Posted Image

Next, you are going to want to drill a small hole in the second half of the plunger rod (the part that slides).

Posted Image

Now, you are going to want to drill the same sized hole in your 1/2in. wooden dowle:

Posted Image

Fourth, scew the plunger rod and handle together. Now, you are going to want to sand down the screw so that it is almost flush with the second half of the plunger rod:

Posted Image
(Note, you are going to want to put some lube on the second half of the plunger rod)

You are going to want to drill a 1/2in. hole in your plunger tube where the hole is:

Posted Image

Posted Image
(It is small and blurry because I took it with my cellphone. I'll get a better one up later).

Cut a hole in the bottom of you gun for the handle put your blaster together and you're finished with part 2! This blaster is a ton of fun, but can't function well with an rscb. I typically use a polypipe breach on it. Part 3 will be up as soon as the snow outside melts so that I can use PVC cement. I'll get a picture of the finished product up later. I now name it the Predator V1.

If you followed all the modifications that I have done so far, your hunter is pum-action and shoots a little over 50ft. flat, but I wanted something that would shoot a little farther.

Part 3: Predator Missle

Materials Needed

A hunter with all the mods done to it so far
Sonic Bazooka Knockoff or a BBBB
Hot glue
Goop/epoxy puddy
JB weld/Epoxy
1/2in. PVC coupler
E-tape

First, this is what the SBK looks like out of the box.

Posted Image

Now an internal shot.

Posted Image

Now cut off the original barrel so that you have just about 1/2in. of the barrel left and wrap it in E-tape until the coupler fits on tight and goop it on with a nice layer of Epoxy around it.

Posted Image

Posted Image
The original barrel fits 1/2in. CPVC air-tightly, and the coupler allows you to se 1/2in. PVC barrels. Double couplering is so easy with this blaster.

While thats drying, cut up your hunter so that it looks like this:

Posted Image

Now cut the trigger guard off of the SBK.

Posted Image

Now test fit your pieces so that they fit like a puzzle:

Posted Image

Now sand every piece of plastic that any form of glue will be touching. Firts, hot glue the two blasters together on the forgrip (but not on the sides). Next, put JB weld or epoxy on the side of the two blasters and tie them together. after that dries, put goop on it or epxy puddy. Do the same to the other side.

Posted Image
(Note, I only hotglued it in this picture the wrong way. It lasted one day. DO THE WAY I DESCRIBE IT)

You may think that this looks uncomfortable to hold, but it's not:

Posted Image

I figured I should show the breach that I use on the hunter, so here it is.

Posted Image

As much as I hated to do it, the SBK couldn't operate a hopper with the stock OPV in place so I had to plug the pump, but there is a bright side to it. If you pump the blaster eight times it takes about 5 seconds for the air to release becase it is a back-pressure blaster.

Posted Image

Finished internal shot:

Posted Image
(I had to cut a slot in the shell for a hopper)

Put the blaster back together and your done!

Posted Image
(It doesn't work well with the RSCB, I don't even know why I put it on).

The ranges of the SBK are around 70-80 with glue domes and and a 6in, CPVC barrel. It doesn't work well with a hopper. I added a LSFG spring to the hunter and I'm getting around 60-70ft. flat with glue domes and a 4in. CPVC barrel.

This has got to be one of the ugliest damn things I've ever seen... However if you can take a hunter and give it 50+ ranges that in its self is impressive. Ive seen the SBK at a store near me, but i did some research and didn't think it was worth picking up, but it seems to have decent ranges. Overall good job. Have you tried a longer barrel for the SBK?

Props on the creativity, I didn't have much hope for a mod named after a COD killstreak. Keep up the good work!

Next time try and get less blurry pictures, also take the pictures farther away so we know where your talking about. Great job!

Ya, it is pretty ugly, but after you paint it it looks a little bit better (I'll get a pic up soon). I have tried longer barrels on the SBK, but the 6in. barrels get the best ranges, and for an 8 dollar gun, I'm happy with it!

Next time try and get less blurry pictures, also take the pictures farther away so we know where your talking about. Great job!


As I mentioned at the begining of the writeup, the writeup is a collectin of my posts over at Nrev, all spaced months apart. At first it was my second writeup, so I wasn't good at taking pictures yet, but they got better as I went on thanks to Shmee.

Props on the creativity, I didn't have much hope for a mod named after a COD killstreak. Keep up the good work!


Thanks, and I didn't mean to name it after a COD killstreak. I don't even know what that is!

Very interesting mod and write-up. Im going to have to get one of those sonic bazooka blasters. Nice job!


Thanks, and the SBK is great for only 8 dollars!

You need to fix the title of this so it's descriptive. That way people can search it. You've got 24 hours after this posting to fix it or disciplinary action will be taken. On a completely different note, this thing is a fucking mess. The pictures suck and it's like 10 different mods in one write up. I don't know why you bothered. I don't really see how this will be helpful to anyone.

I know I'm gonna regret this....
Talio, is the point of NH to only promote the Hereticorps, McNumbers, and Slugs of the community? I always thought it was a point to share knowledge and ideas- in this case the mod is defintely not beautiful, but far better than many I've seen in my time here. Carving the Hunter into an underslung integration is an interesting idea and novel to the site. For what it's worth, that idea alone is helpful, at least to me.

As I said I have not not alot of testes yet but I will be once I finish the mod.
