Here's my mod for the Tech Target gun. Three changes occurred:
-Smaller barrel for 1/2 inch (homemade) darts, also slightly longer
-No air restrictor
-Stronger spring

Since I took photos after doing the mod, I'll only have certain views.

This is the gun opened with the (aluminum) barrel already in.

As you can see, the barrel comes apart easily from the main part of the gun.

This is an important part of the barrel. It has to be cut neatly out so that air is allowed through easily, and should line up with the inserted barrel.

If the pictures won't load, it's because I dont have photobucket yet, so the geocities site might be over its limit.

This gun gets a pretty good range; I measured around 65 feet angled based on 3 test fires. I know other people have modded this gun, but I thought some looked kind of sloppy, so I made this one clean looking. The main issue i have with this gun is that it is noisy for being a small plunger-type gun. I can't figure any practical ways to make the noise quieter without reducing range.

Angled range isnt really all that important, whats the range flat? if you glue some fbr (foam backer rod) to the front of the plunger, it can often make the gun much quieter, and you dont loose range.

1. Function over form.
2. Your ranges are going to go down sufficiently because the seal between the barrel and the plunger tube on your gun is horrible. Glue it on.

Other than that, yeah, you did do a clean job.
