Hey there. This is my first official mod thread so hopefully I can make this work. I recently got my hands on a Triad at my local Toys R Us and knew I had to try this thing out. It's basically a bigger Jolt with three barrels and a very interesting firing mechanism. Basically when you have all three barrels loaded, it fires in a cycle, bottom barrel, upper right and upper left. But when you only have 1 dart chambered, it doesn't matter which barrel its in; it will still fire at its normal range. Now, I haven't seen a thread involving taking out the AR so lets get started. First you get your Triad.

Then you look at the back and drill a 9/32" hole in the exact center as you possibly can. In the hole you should see the one screw that holds in the back portion.

Once you unscrew it, take out the screw and take a small flat head and place it in this notch on the Triad like the picture illustrates.

Then once you lifted out the AR assembly, you will be looking at this mech. Unfortunately I took the pic AFTER I modified it, but just imagine it with three AR pegs sticking up.

Posted Image

And I closely examined the mech and figured out how it works. Basically there is some kind of air channel that runs through all three barrel bases and when the AR is pressed down by the dart, it will force the air into that specific barrel, which explains how it cycles. I wish I could explain it better, but yea, its kinda trick. Either way.

Very carefully take out the pegs but LEAVE THE AR BASES. They are absolutely crucial to the blaster's cycling function. If you remove them all you'll get is a shotty pistol that shoots 20 feet. And it sucks unless you plan on having a ball-sucking backup.

Posted Image

Once you do that clean up any debris and put the mech back in the right way, with the point facing up. If you find it tricky, prime the blaster and push down the rubber gasket-like-thing you see in the picture.

Posted Image

After that you are done. It's hard to tell if there is a significant range difference since the main portion of the AR is still there, but it allows better and a more pure airflow as well as increasing velocity. Plus its hard for me to range test in a 40 foot hallway that is only 4 feet wide, but when it hits the wall, it makes quite the "THWACK!". Not to mention that the Elite streamlines still have the very annoying wild flight pattern that streamlines had.

Also, if you're wondering why I used a drill instead of a flat head, please look at the next pic and tell me which one you would've chosen;

So does this still have the ability to identify where the darts are, so it can shoot 1, or 2, or 3

So how do you seal that hole when you are done? Also do you think it is easily possible to do a barrel replacement?

How did you ever find that hidden screw? I figured the back would come out though unjust thought I was glued on. Anyway good find. This opens it up to use stefans and rebarreling.

This is pretty beast, as andtherois said, how did you find the screw?
I'm asuming that you saw it in the first attempt..
Anyway, excellent mod, very clean, probably the first.
I can't wait to get one!

Indeed it does. The cycling system is based on a very simple air channel. Basically the air goes through each barrel and the thing that actually directs the air properly is the AR base, which is why it is crucial to keep them in.

So how do you seal that hole when you are done? Also do you think it is easily possible to do a barrel replacement?


I'm not sure if sealing the hole is possible to do cleanly. As for the barrel replacement, it would be quite difficult. But not impossible, since the orange piece in the front is removable, so it might serve as a good barrel spacer.

If you look at the last pic, you can figure that out. The first one I bought was purely for experimentation. And it definitely is NOT glued on. The back is actually held in with 3 plastic pegs that are super glued into the AR channel system, which it why the back of the first Triad is all kinds of fucked up.

Yes, thank you very much. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a decent backup pistol or HVZ player that needs a last resort or compact self defense blaster. The thing I love the most is how compact it is and the fact that you can fire 3 shots before reloading.

Thanks!!! This helps immensely. I too picked up a Triad. Actually two of them as they qualify for the BOGO 50% off at my TRU. The auto channeling design is very similar to the Roughcut. I like the Triad but it is rather bulky compared to the Jolt. But having three shots makes up for that.

That is really incredible. Well done, and great write up

How difficult is the stock spring to prime? Is the spring basically the same as a Jolt?

And perhaps I am missing something, but it looks like there is a lot of deadspace in there judging by your shot of the AR mechanism/assembly.

By removing the Triad's AR, does it free up the barrels enough to support other darts and stefans?
Thanks for the guide by the way, been considering getting a Triad as a backup but wanted to make sure it modding was practical.
