Okay, so when I sawed off about an inch of the exsisting barrel on my BBB there was a weird pole(kinda like a K-Nex piece) that I can push in and out. I pulled back and fired to see if the air flow was messed up. I didn't feel any air what-so-ever when I did this. Before I sawed off the barrel there was a little air restrictor type thing at the front of the gun that I could push in. What I'am thinking is that this little button had to be pushed in to fire. Kinda like a safety percaution. Any ideas on how to fix this?? BTW I have the new version that was just re-released.

The re-realese version has a new air restrictor, you have to take part the gun to get it out.

Okay, I fixed it, it fires....but NOW it's extremely inaccurate. I looked down the barrel and found that the part where the air comes out is not centered with the actual barrel. Thus making more air on one side of the dart throwing off the aerodynamics. Is there anyway I can fix this?? Thanks for the respond on the other Q.

I'm a little confused, isn't the part where the air comes out the same as the barrel? Do you mean that the plunger head is not aligned with the barrel?

Yes, sorry for not stating what the problem was clearly. The little head of the plunger isnt alligned with the barrel so more air is on one side of the dart thowing off accuracy dramatically.

I'm not really sure what you would do there, that sounds tough. Yeah, you could try unscrewing the plunger head, but that probobly would work.

So... the plunger head is crooked? Unscrew it and glue+tape it back on. Not too hard, man. You shouldn't have to post for that.

Shut up, you have no idea what you're talking about. You can't unscrew the BBB's plungerhead, it uses the old style plungerhead that's attached and you have to rip it off after you pull off a hard piece of orange plastic under the piece that makes the seal with the plunger tube.

Sharpshooter, I don't know how your plungerhead could be off center; there's a second piece of the plunger tube itself that the barrel is completely attached to, so if the plungerhead is off center with the barrel you'll have to take it apart and make sure that piece (it looks kind of like a dome and then the barrel on it) is attached straight to the plunger tube. If you want to be 100% sure that piece will stay straight, just add a layer or two of electrical tape around the bottom (largest) piece of the plunger tube and then jam the top piece over it. I did that and it worked wonders for mine.


Good luck with the BBB.

Whoa, now everyone is jumping on me! Geez, sorry if i missed the whole BBB part of his post. I do realize that mistake. But you could have said "well, the plunger ain't like that" or something to that extent. I did have a picture of an NF plunger in my head... oh well.

In the future, please don't be such a dick about correcting me. I know I'm not perfect. If I was, I wouldn't be posting around the boards. Everyone gets messed up sometimes. I'm also kinda pissed that people don't experiment on their own, not to say that SS didn't. Like the kids that are all "how do you mod the 2k?" and shit like that.

Team slaya, I don't think you're allowed to flame someone about them flaming you about you flame the poster of a thread(sorry that was a long chain...) then claiming that you didn't realize it was a BBB(which you probably did forget taht it was somehow) when the fact that the gun in question is a BBB in the TITLE of the thread. Just seems like a weak excuse for an over-reaction. I hold no hard feelings however and just advise you to make sure you know what you're talking about before you talk about anything.
