I understand that not a lot of people own the Boomco Crankforce, and I feel pretty dumb for asking this; but how do I open it?

 

The front of the barrel is a solid plastic piece that needs to be pried off, but I'm not sure whether its glued or not. I tried searching for a solution, but pretty much nothing came up. I know Boomtendo has a video with the disassembled blaster, but he didn't say how he did it.

 

I managed to get one side really close to coming off, but it didn't last.

 

The last time I tried using brute force to open a blaster, I ended up breaking the plastic. 

 

Not sure what to do here.

 

UPDATE: Tried dipping the part in boiling water, didn't seem to do anything. Still stuck. Thanks for all the help.  :mellow:

 

FINAL UPDATE: Remembered I paid $5 for the blaster, so I went at it with the dremel then pried the rest off. Turns out the piece was glued where the two halves of the blaster met... Guess I didn't dip it long enough. 

 

Oh well.

Also, the only reason I have one of these monstrosities is because they are a $5 Add On item on Amazon. I got this and a Slingfire for $25.

You could slice the front plastic part in half along the shell line, glued or not. The screws around there should keep it closed pretty well.
