Let's Just get to the guide.

What You'll need:
5/8 ID tubing for sheath(I used PVC)
5/8 OD, 1/2 ID Tubing for barrels (I used cpvc)
Adhesive

Open your splitfire:

Cut down your tanks and sand them till they look like this. While you're at it plug your pump:

Take your 5/8 ID tubing and cut it to 5" long. Then cut a slot 1/4" away from the back and 1-1/2" forward to create your breech opening. Be sure to make 2.

Glue them onto the tanks. Make them centered.

Dremmel out the supporting walls of the shell until the assembly fits inside the shell without any resistance. The shell halves should stay together if you took out enough material.

Finally line up your breech and mark where to cut on the outside of your shell.

Insert 8" of your barrel material into the sheaths and you're done. You can put an O-ring with an OF of 5/8 into the sheaths if you want.

I managed to find some good fitting PVC at my home depot. PROTIP check the conduit PVC. it's tolerances are much looser. Of course you can use whatever fancy materials you want from mcmaster and make a clear breech.

I may do this if I ever get a splitfiire. Even though this is a widely used method, there has been no write up on it. Nice job. btw, ranges?

Looks good. The Splitfire is an annoying blaster to reload, so this should help.

This looks great:)
Very clean.
If I ever get a splitfire, this would probably be the best thing to do to it.

Thanks for the write up,

Mully

I love how clean that looks, cannot wait to see what it looks like after you paint the barrels and whatnot.

Still the same name as top left corner of this post.
