I looked at some Tech Taget gun mods, but most of them required brass or PETG and extensive cutting on the barrel. CPVC is cheap and easy to use so I utilized it in this easy mod.

1. Take your TTG apart and remove all air restrictors.
2. Take off the plunger head by unscrewing the scew and removing it. Now take off the spring and stretch it. Then put all of that back together.
3. Take the orginal barrel and and some 1/2 inch CPVC. Cut a piece of CPVC the length of the stock barrel. Now, take the CPVC and push it into the stock barrel. You'll probably need to take a mallet or hammer to gently tap it in.
4. Take the barrel with the CPVC in it and hot glue it to the plunger tube.

5. Reassemble the gun. Put on rubber bands for more velocity.
6. Take a Dremel tool and take enough of the top part of the plunger so that you can see the sight on the end of the barrel.

7. Now, you are done. The gun should look like this:

The mod takes less than 15 minutes and gets you ranges of about 70+ feet. It does not require cutting or Dremeling on the gun at all. Feel free to ask questions. Hope you all enjoy.

Edit: Added steps 6-7.

That better be 70ft with a level shot, not an angled one... :lol:

What kind of darts were you firing for the ranges test(s)?

Could I get about the same results with 1/2 PVC?

Is it possible you post one more pic to show how exactly you put your rubber bands on? :D

Great mod dude.

Oh, yes. I wrote this write real late last night, and I really didn't have time to snap all the pics I wanted. I'm going to update the mod even more. I got your covered, Halfing.

Ranges aren't angled.

Official data: Short- 69.4 feet. Long- 78.7 feet.
Accuracy at 45 feet on 1'X1' target: 100% (10 out of 10 shots)

Woio thats impressive. I put my bands on like so. I take two rubber bands and tie them together, then simply string that through the cocking handle and stretch eahc rubberband to the front of the gun and over the barrel. They should stop right above the ammo holders and below the barrel. I would put about three of these one which would amount to 6 rubberbands total. Hope this helped.

Alright, I fully updated my mod. I added steps 6-7 so you can actually see the sight and added a pic of the internals. Enjoy.

How tall are you?
How far off the ground is that?
What kind of weight/weights are your steffens made with?
How well do your darts fit into the barrel?
How are you measuring the range?
Is that range with or with out dart skip?

Out of every TTG Iíve used or owned/modded I canít say any have hit 70í with a level 5í high shot and though I wonít definitively say that those ranges arenít possible. I will say this itís annoying when people mod their guns and then feel they have a dud because theyíre not reaching exaggerated ranges. Many people donít realize how much a slight tilt in there hand affects range.

(Side note: the last part isnít necessarily towards you; youíve usually know what your talking about. But it is to say to those reading, they may not get the same ranges you have.)

Ninja, to answer your questions:

1. I am 6'5"
2. When I shoot the pistol, it is 5 feet, 5.5 inches from the ground
3. I'm using different types of weights. The dart that went 78.7 feet was probably either the BB sized sinker or 3/0 sized. (hard to tell what weight is being used once it is glued in and all the darts thrown together)
4. I measure my ranges on a flat piece of land, marked out to 100 feet with spray painted lines with 20 feet increments
5. Darts usually don't skip on grass, so no skip measurements

I'm sure some people won't get the same ranges as me. I was simply giving the data I collected after some testing. I recieved some feedback from people and they say that they get close to, if not the same ranges I do. My ranges are never inflated. I'm here to provide quality modifications, not bullshit.

Fair enough, excuse my precautious, sometime doubtful nature.

No worries, Ninja. Many mods out there are done half assed and people claim to shoot half miles. That's why I try to go the farthest extent possible to prove my mods, so you, the Nerfer, can have some proven data before you modify your gun.

Very good StarBuck. I've been wondering what I should do to my TTGs.

Holy Jesus you're 6' 5''?

I'm 5' 5''... Hows the weather up there?

NerfLad, if you have any questions, just ask.
