Yes, I know its just something basic, but it negative twelve with 40 MPH winds, and I needed something to do. ANYWAY.

Tools needed,
Dremel
Needle nose pliers
various screwdrivers
super glue or other form of adhesive.
spare FBR, or dart.
Lubrication of some sort. Silicone based is recomended.

Bust apart your plunger assembly. I simply put my pliers in the small hole in the back and pryed( pry'ed? pride? pry'd? Pried? :huh: )

From left to right is: main plunger assembly, AR, AR spring, and Plunger assembly end cap. Throw the AR components away, and it should look like this-

DRILL DA HECK OUTTA DAT FING!
BAM!

sand it down lightly to avoid and sharp pokey things that could injure residents of the plunger, such as darts, or fingers of curious little siblings.

Add some super glue, or adhesive of choice to the top lip of the end cap, and push in to the Main assembly. Hold it down for 15 seconds for super glue, or however long your recommended curing time is for your chosen adhesive.

You should now have something closely resembling this. Add a small amount of lube to the o-ring, E-tape it, double it up, or do all of the above, as the stock seal is horse shit. Add some padding on back to prevent broken plungers.

Slap a supah Leet paint job on there, throw in a maverick spring, beef up your catch spring and you get something like this!

LOL YOU SAID PISS-TOOLS.

All you have to do is dip the end of the Inverse plunger in boiling water and it pops off, that way you have no marks on the end from pliers.

Someone please tell me how to reply to two people at once, that would be awesome.

Mully- I cant really test range, as the weather out here is crap, and my catch's went missing... but my rough estimate is 30 feet with the springs in it, as I was getting 20ish before.

Shanaynay- Yes, but this is quicker, and actually didnt leave any marks, and it separated fairly easily. for other blasters I would definetly suggest boiling the joints. And I also cant find my OMW silicone grease either! GRR.

Thanks for the input guys.

Sweet thanks!


And to everyone else, 17/32 brass or 9/16 for a re barrel. I feel 17/32 is too tight and the darts don't fit in well, but I could just be looney.

Ragon, did you add any precompression to the springs or switch them out? Nice paintjob.

If two powerful is a problem then just go with one powerful. I guess this style of hopper will work even beyond three powerful..

17/32" is perfect. What I do is take a set of scissors (adult size) open them up , jam one blade in the brass turn it a few times . Stock darts will fit great

I'll have to try that today.

EDIT: Just did a test fit and I feel that 17/32 is too tight. I tryed to shoot it out like a blowgun, and could not. I think 9/16 would better but I fit have any..

9/16" istoo large. You lose pressure. Take some material out of the 17/32" and elite darts fit amazing. I've only done this to my Switch shots and Firestrikes . Maybe the strike fire does not have enough ass to push it out :)

I've used 17/32 to great success in a scout, nf, etc.
It's a bit tight, but it isn't hard to get darts in if you twist.
