Ah, the Scout. I forgot to take a picture of it before I ripped the thing apart, but I'm sure you've all stared and drooled over it long enough to know what a stock Scout looks like. Continuing on.
Open up the gun, and take out that tiny little plunger tube that's probably about the size of your pointer finger. Then, take your trusty dremel and drill out that barrel from the back, and get rid of that nasty air restrictor.
If you are using heavier stefans, like 1/4 steel shot stefans, STOP HERE! just put the whole thing back together, and you should be getting around 40' flat with the gun. Not the greatest, but what did you expect with such a small plunger tube?
STOP HERE IF YOU ARE USING STEFANS
Now, take a saw and saw it in approximately these two places, so you are left with two peices that look like these.
Then, carefully sand the inside of those until you can fit some 17/32 brass (3 inches) through the front peice, and so the back piece stays on. Now, glue the back end of the barrel onto the back end of the brass. Don't glue the front part on, as you're going to need to do some sliding with that later. It should look like this.
Now, fit the plunger tube over the barrel, and make sure it's all the way in. Then, slide the front orange piece until it hits the plunger tube. Mark it, and glue it in there, I'd use hot glue since it's not really an essential joint, and if you make a mistake you can always rip it off.
You really SHOULD do a spring replacement with this gun, but alas, my local ACE doesn't have any springs that would really work in this gun... I hope you have better luck finding a better spring. Well, here's what the gun looks like internally with the modded barrel.
And close it all up- the final product should look like this. The picture is taken on my ever-so-famous lego bedsheets, just for you.
(NOTE: Barrel is still 4 inches in that picture, as I didn't cut it down yet... Yes, stupid me.)
Using Stock darts, like I TOLD YOU the rest of this mod is for, then you should be getting about 50' flat with stock darts. If you wanted to shoot stefans, you should learn to read before doing any more mods.
