Hello, everyone. This is my first writeup on how to single a Recon with CPVC. I did this because i was bored after school.
Dremel with cutting wheel, grinding/sanding bits
Hot glue gun with hotglue (I would have used Plumber's Goop or epoxy but i'm impatient)
4 Inches of CPVC
Lubricant of choice ( I used white lithium grease)
Take apart your Recon and remove the air restrictor and locks.
Get your Dremel with a cutting wheel and cut the plunger thingy here or 2 inches from the bump thingy (i don't know the official name so i'm gonna call it a plunger sled)
Get your Dremel with a grinding/sanding bit and grind down at your CPVC and/or your plunger sled (the inside of it) until the CPVC can fit into the plunger sled then using a adhesive (I used hot glue) to secure the CPVC. MAKE SURE IT IS STRAIGHT
Cut the nub that the bolt sled attaches to the plunger sled off and glue it to your CPVC (about 1/4 of a inch (if a fourth of an inch doesn't work then use a half inch) from the end of the CPVC) while making sure that the CPVC is centered by attaching the bolt sled and eyeballing it while adjusting the bolt sled location.
Wait for the glue or adhesive to dry. Ream out the CPVC.
Remove the dart tooth and cut the barrel attachment so that it looks like this. Shorten the trigger
Use either a Dremel or band saw to cut the shell so it looks like this.
Step 6: (optional)
do any optional mods like a power stock or spring replacment.
When done it should look like this.
Ranges with stock spring:
About 60 feet with a FVJ
