Break down your blaster following Shadow the HellJumper's tutorial. You will also need to remove the trigger and the plate at the bottom near the priming handle. Push up on the black rubber piece from inside the plunger tube and it will pop free. Here it is all taken apart.
If you examine the barrels you will see only a very small part of it actually grips the dart. The dart on the left is where it would stop if you dropped it into the barrel, and on the right is if you pushed it all the way in.
Cut the trigger guard free from the front barrel and score the plastic above the trigger where it meets the blaster so it will tear more easily. Then just cut the barrels off as shown.
Clean up the cut area so you have a nice even surface.
Next, cut three barrels of equal length. I chose a length that would hold clip system darts completely inside the barrel. I can't remember what the barrels are made of, but they have a great fit on stock darts and has the same od as cpvc.
Carefully glue your barrels to the openings where the old ones used to be. I glued the barrels on using multiple layers of superglue, cured with baking soda. I only glued them partially, then added the front spacer, and then went back and really stuck them in place with a few more layers of superglue. Using baking soda to cure superglue kicks ass. If you have never tried it, you really should.
Here are a few shots of the final product.
Make sure to lubricate the plunger tube, plunger head, and the black rubber piece that connects the pt to the air restrictor housing.
EDIT: My lower barrel kept getting awful ranges due to a rubber disk that sits on top of the white part in the air restrictor setup. The rubber part wouldn't move back with the white part and get stuck half way. Then when the barrel was fired the rubber part would close off the barrel prematurely.
Clean the white part and the back of the rubber part with a little alcohol on a q-tip and let dry. Then VERY CAREFULLY add a very small dot of glue between them and allow the spring to push them together. This made all inconsistencies in ranges stop.
As far as ranges go.... sadly it seems to be getting almost the same ranges as a stock triad. I may try out some different barrel materials or lenghts on my next triad rebarrel. At least this mod made this a much more reliable blaster by removing the chance of darts slipping once loaded.
Hope to see somebody take this and really show me up by making it work. The possibility for better ranges is there, we just need to get there.
