Hey everyone. I relized something today when I woke up....I haven't contributed anything to this site. Well here's what I have in store for you all today. I have done a CPVC mod to my FireFly REV-8 from the N-Strike line. This is a pretty bad gun out of the box. Springs and restrictors removed isn't to great. But with CPVC you can up it again (of course you may be able to get more range with other materials)
So here are some steps to mod your FireFly REV-8 to a decent gun.
Materials you shall need for this mod;
1/2" CPVC
Pipe Cutters (Not neccesary but I like them)
Hot Glue gun/Glue sticks
Screwdriver (Philips Head)
A good patients

Step 1.
Open up your FireFly REV-8.
This step tested my pateints because the back is glued shut or something.

Here is a better veiw of the internals if you get lost and don't know how to put the gun back together.

Step 2.
Take out the screws that hold the turret in place.
**NOTE: you do not need to take out every screw in the gun. Just several of them.
Now picture for this step.

Step 3.
Now get these screws out of your turret.

Step 4.
Pry open your turret. I used a flat head screw driver and pried it off.

Here is a picture of the 4 parts of you turret

Step 5.
Saw off your magical little stock barrels, then burn them laughing. (Cut where I have my magical little black marks)

Now your barrel part should look like this.....

Your actual barrels should be kind of like this.

Step 6.
Cut your 1/2 CPVC into 3"long sections. 3" sections for me work the best for accuracy and range.
Step 7.
This is how I put my barrels in. Somehow the CPVC fits nice into the white part. (But glueing is still manditory)
**NOTE: I put my barrels in the one way (Worked good) if your barrels do not go in that way, simply file the end down.

Step 8.
Barrel should look something like this when finished.

Step 9.
Put you gun back together. Refer to top pic of internals for help and reference to how to put it back together.

YAY! You now have (hopefully) modded you FireFly REV-8.

Ranges: Haven't tested but my basements like 45' maybe and it hits with nice velocity.
I'm guessing 45'-55' flat.

Hope you all enjoy a mod by Sqiggs.

EDIT: I seemed to have missed a step. See step 6 for proper step.

Very sweet mod man. I am impressed, makes me want to pick up a Firefly. When I mod It however I will use Petg to keep that clear turret style and because I dont have patience for cpvc. Oh and I laughed at the burning pic good work!

P.S. That has to be the chubbiest screwdriver I have ever seen.

But Iím just not the angel you knew.

The screwdriver is pretty sweet. It runs on 2 AAA batteries. I'm one of the laziest people you'll meet so I got one of these mini electric screwdrivers. Works really nice, I'd say. I found it in my house and now, it's the only screwdriver I really use any more.

Thanks for the comments so far guys.

Yea I did this one a while back but I found these small bungees and internally banded it, it added some range and this is now a pretty decent gun.

You should be able to use 17/32 brass for similar performance, right? I did brass barrels on my Mav and I'm only getting about 25'. Mabye I should try nested... Anywho, great mod Sqiggs.

The brass is too tight on your mav, because the air will take the path of least resistance and because of the medocre seal on the turret the air with flow out the gap and not bother pushing the dart out.

I took your inspiration and used cpvc on my FF. but i'm making them 12" long and using pneumatic pressure to launch them. The halogen flasher already there makes it easy to plug in a solenoid valve to trip when you pull the trigger. Itís going to be quite the loser with the popper Stephanís. Thanks for the Idea Posted Image
