Ah yes: The Secret Shot 2, A somewhat popular primary weapon because of it's most excellent range and compact size. But the real selling point on a stock SS2 was the hidden Second barrell that appeared as a scope. Most Modders remove this brillint part when they modify their SS2s for the power and range. I on the other hand, decided that it was wise to make mine still have this ability, it would be like having a long-range and a holdout in one gun, a just reason to do so.
I also had not done anything all the new with my UBS set-up in a while, except on one key bit of research, that six -nch barrels are FAR more effective and efficent than twelve-inch ones in the sense of range and portablity, but they are louder. But i can afford to make some more noise if i get another 10-20 feet.
Anywho: so here's the process:
I inttialy removed the outer shell:
From There I seperated the Guts from The Rest of the gun:
I did the standard for all pump guns and plugged the pump valve:
Now in order to do what I intended to, I knew I would face two big challenges: Challenge #1 I would have to take the peice of 1/2in PVC that I use as a coupler and make it fit inside the stock barrel chamber, so that the "secret" barrel would still seal like it should and fire. Knowing the nature of the gun, I knew I would most likely have to chop up that section of the gun to get things to work smoothly and to remove the air restrictor, so for the safety of my mod, and a bit of paranoia Challenge #1 would wait.
Challenge #2 would be to replace the innards of the "secret" barrel with a peice of brass:
my standard nesting setup: 3in of 9/16 and 2.5in of 17/32, I gladly Went To Tackle what i thought was the lesser mod work first.
So My Task began:
I started dremmeling out the air restrictor and before I knew it, the rubber section that makes the seal had come off.
But That turned out to be not that much of a problem: as it fit perfectly over the rear end of my brass peice:
Now The Biggest problem Had come, How The Heck Do I re-attach it? I tried hot glue, that came back off, I then Used Super Glue, but it wasn't holding very well either, finaly I used some high-strength Hobby Superglue that my grandpa uses on model aircraft, and an accellerant and after about three coats It held tight. (I don't have any pics of this, and trust me you're not missing much.)
So as I left that to dry, I went back to work on the airtank/barrel:
The Barrel Has two logical spots to cut it, each is at a point in which size decreaes:
I drilled out the air restrictor out of the back:
And I saved The Front End:
...blast that pic post limit...
