I need a little advice. I don't want to do anything special like brass barrels or pvc barrels. I just want it to shoot, and consistently. I know the problem is the little spring loaded plastic (tripod thing) at the end of the barrel. But can I just simply open it up and take it out or is it more complicated and I need to buy a dremel?

Edit: Also If i just take out the pegs and start shooting stefans will the stefans pop out like the stock darts do or will I have the same problem is I don't take the springs out?

I believe you will need a dremel to drill out the air restricting stuff at the end/bottum of the barrels. If you do ever get a hold of one, be very careful when drilling them out. Also do NOT, I repeat, do NOT plug the overpressure release valve at the end of the pump. You will get airpressure problems when you pump it.
You also can simply pull out the pegs and I can guarentee you that it'll shoot stefans fine.

Ach, it's been too long since I've opened up my hornet... Alright, look down the barrels. If you see a little three-pronged thing at the bottom, chances are you'll need a dremel to get rid of them. Unfortunately, I'm almost positive it has the three prongs. If you just rip off the prongs, I doubt the gun will fire at all. I'll explain why later if needed.

Heh, it's been a while, I've been absent partially because my comp's hard drive was taken away. But no matter, I have 2 more computers up and running.

Ompa, I wasn't sure, but I was having problems with my Hornet too. When I toke my dremel and drilled out the air restrictors, all the stuff falls to the bottum and I can't seem to pull them out at all. Then, after I drilled out the last barrel, I hear leaking air when I try to pump it. Anything I did wrong? I don't think I had drilled correctly. How far should I drill down to? I probably should have use that round-shaped sander thing.

Here was how I did it, and it worked fine for me (I plugged the pump and have no problems with pressure or leaking or anything):

1) I took needle-nosed pliers and ripped out the poles in the barrels.

2) I took my Dremel with a little spinning saw piece and chopped off the barrels.

3) I took my Dremel and, using a drill bit, drilled straight into the three-pronged piece in the end of the barrel, going in circles, but still applied pressure to get rid of the whole thing. It should just fall down there now.

4) I took the pliers and poked the little piece (without prongs now) to push it sideways, so I could get at it sideways - the side of the circle - and yanked it out.

5) I drilled out whatever was left, but tried not to hit the valves. I did once or twice and heard air leaking horribly when I pumped it, but it was just debris down there, because when I shot it and pumped it up again, there were no leaks.
