Well for my first mod guide I went with Simplicity.
Psyk and Jerm showed it was possible, but never how, so here is my guide to making this thing shoot darts.

What you will need:
-3/4 PVC coupler
-1/2 PVC coupler
-Dremel
-Adhesive (Super Glue, Expoy, Goop, your choice)
-Masking/Painters Tape

Optional items:
-Screw (not a big one)
-Hot Glue
-Mallet
-drill bit

Step 1:
Tape up the airhole so shavings.

Step 2:
Shave the Inner diameter of the tip just enough to fit the 3/4 coupler.

Step 3:
Shave the inner diameter of the 3/4 Coupler just enough to fit the 1/2 coupler inside
NOTE: It does not have to fit completely but at least nest it, and then hammer them together.

Step 4:
Add adhesive of choice to and place coupler combo.

Optional Steps:
- Drill a hole for the screw to add additional security for the coupler.
- Add hot glue to the outer diameter of the coupler for extra seal.

And the completed mod. Barrel used was a CPVC/PVC combo.

Ranges are averaging 70ish feet.
-Using my mini streamlines I got between 50-100 feet but with the few stefans I have they hit 70 consistent. Also when testing I did not have the hot glue on the outer ring.

I have done this in the past, and have found that the extra pressure on the 1/2" Coupler makes it very hard to twist off your barrels.
Its best to just sand it down perfectly, and nest it inside IMO.

Other than that it was a good mod and write-up! Very simple, and easy to follow.
I really want one of these just for fun! :lol:

It is fun. I didn't run into any problems twisting off the barrels. However the end that was hammered down (not the struck end but the end going in) I could not fit the barrels into, but the other side was perfectly fine.

Thanks.
