Well I have been recently thinking about my guns, and my future use of stefans. I have seen the ranges on a nested brass gun and they look really good. My dream mod would be to have a 17/32" brass stub attached to the air tank with coupler around it, then have 9/16" nested in the pvc, so it would not only nest the brass but pvc as well for extra hold. I was just wondering if you guys had any input on which gun I should be modding. Also, how is it that a sm1500 has never been brassed?

Edit: I don't have the materials to brass right now and I got bored.
Anways, here is the Mod write up for a sm1500 i just did.

First, completely remove the turret after opening up the gun, you won't be needing it (Note: Only do this mod if you are willing to give up a nice turret gun or if you already have one)

Next, directly attach a cleaned out crayola barrel to the air tank.

Now slip on about 2 1/2" of schd. 40 pvc over the crayola and put some 1/2" coupler on it. Your crayola barrel should stick out about 1/2" from the coupler.

Load your dart, stefan or stock, into the crayola barrel.

Now just slap on a 5-6" barrel on the other end of the coupler. The crayola should fit in nicely. I just went outside and range tested, here are the results:

Stock Whistler Micro - 75' flat
loser Micro (stock body, stefan tip) - 90' flat
Unfortunately, I couldn't test my stefans because it just started snowing, I'm goin on spring break too, so I'll get back to you on the stefan range.
My estimate would be around 85-90 feet. This gun is sweet, even though the rof is crap compared to a quad barreled, its hella fun to shoot. A good primary.
Please Note: the coupler comes after the pvc because now it can shoot without the 5-6" barrel, very shotgun like. Then, when wanted, the barrel can be slapped on.

Single barreled 2k/1500 micro shooters are pretty dangerous, besides, if you're going to do anything to those guns with micro's really should be multied, even if you already have one.

Alright, thanks Talio, but since i already had a single barreled 1500 i decided to re work it. I'll see if i can't get pics up. Its crayola/pvc barreled.

I've got a singled Crayola/PVC modded AT2K. I use it a lot as a primary, plus just to shoot around. I make sure my friends wear a paintball mask when it's in play. I used about 7" of 1/2" Sch. 40 PVC with red lettering on it, so I can shoot megas out of it with deadly accuracy. I hit my friend in the face with a mega from 30 feet. I can't imagine what it would be like brassed. Probably too powerful for the indoor wars I play. EDIT: I got the mod off of Falcon's site, the Den of Foam, sorry, forgot to tell where I found it.

I forgot to say, its a breech barrel. You could probably tell from reading the write up, but anyway, the pictures are sweet so as soon as i can get em up, you'll see how mine differs (not that much from falcons).

I also got those ranges without plugging the pump, because on my other one i broke the air tank. I would say this gun is just downright powerful.

...

Guns to be Modded:
Sm1500(that would mean this has to be single barreled, I already have a quad)
At2k
LBB (getting sick of using a ramrod)

I proposed the nested brass mod as a way to overcome the difficulties inherent in modding spring guns for micro stefans.

There's really no point for pump guns.

You would get better results with plain old brass and micro stefans. If you want to rear load you can do the pvc coupler without the nested brass.

These ideas have all been discussed a hundred times on this site.

With an AT2k I would avoid the rear-loading and just plug the stock barrels with 6-7" of brass.

He means to cut the stock barrels off at the line in them and glue brass barrels on.
