I find the Air zone hawk a very cool, and fun blaster to use, but it really doesn't get great range. My goal was to attempt to make this blaster achieve much better ranges, and maybe be war worthy. Also, in all the time have been here, I have never seen a mod for this blaster. Anyway, lets get to the mod. By the way, sorry for the crappy pics.

First, you have to cut the front orange cap off like so.

Posted Image
Then open the blaster up, here are the internals (it's not as complicated as it looks).

Posted Image
Here is the plunger/bolt assembly.

Posted Image
take the plunger rod out, wipe off all the grease, and put some tephlon tape under the o-ring

Posted Image
cut out a 1/4'' length of 1/2'' PVC, and cut a slit in it like so, this will act as a spring spacer.

Posted Image
put the PVC ring on the plunger rod, and below the spring, like so

Then take a pair of pliers like these with the circle in the middle.

Posted Image
then wrap those pliers around the PVC ring, and tighten it up, like so (sorry for blurry pic)

Posted Image
Then fill that hole on the top of the plunger rod

Posted Image
After that, put some felt pads (that most people use for stefans)on top, and use some hot glue to make sure it stays down.

Posted Image
Then put your internals back in.

Posted Image
Make sure you put some hot glue for the supports for the PVC spacer.

Posted Image
Now making the shells.

Posted Image
First, drill out the hole on the bottom (I believe I used a 1/4'' drill bit), then get that black piece out with some needle nose pliers.

Posted Image
Then cut the shell down right before it bevels down.

Posted Image
Then, using a dremel, make a new bevel, and clean it up with some sand paper.

Posted Image
Then glue in a 1 1/2'' length of CPVC

Overall, ranges haven't improved that much from what I can tell, but I haven't gotten around to range test it. I have rev 2 in mind, but am still working on it. If you have any questions feel free to ask
