Gah.. sorry for posting so much, but I DO have some input.
First off, very nice job, it looks like it's painted gunmetal, and I really like the look of it.
Secondly, you REALLY need to replace the barrel, it'll increase your range a ton. I suggest a long thing of 9/16 brass, probably at least 15 inches. Or, cpvc if you get a tight fit with it. Cpvc has yet to fail me, but it's a really tight fit. However, with supersoakers, it seems to get much better range since you have so much air, and it gets a massive pop with a tight barrel. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I get good results with cpvc and supersoakers. However, if you really feel the need to keep the crayola, I'm pretty sure you could just take a long piece of 1/2 pvc and slide that over the crayola, kind of making a breech loader. You could probably stick a coupler over the crayola and glue it on the casing so it's more secure as well. Best of luck man!
