About half the props for this go to Sunchip, whose idea of a Reactor shotgun with CPVC barrels gave me this idea.

This is NOT a writeup. I'm sorry to those who wanted one, but I will probably post a writeup for a Ball Blaster, which is the exact same thing, in a few days.

This is just proof that the Reactor can be modded to not suck. Mine gets about 55' flat with MEGA Stefans, and I'm sure it could go upwards of 70' with micro Stefans, just look at the thing. Okay, enough talking, here it is.

Here's the barrel assembly:

I know it's hard to see, but there's a 1" PVC coupler, a piece of 1" PVC in there, a 1/2" PVC coupler Plumber's Gooped in there and a (not shown) 10.25" barrel of PVC for mega Stefans.

A view from the back of the assembly:

The middle of the gun (I had to Goop it back together after cutting it down the center to get all the internal crap out):

And here's the finished product:

And finally, the video that shows how un-sucky the gun is:

I know I look like a huge dork in the video, but hey, I'm a Nerfer. Tell me what you think (of the gun, not me)!

Awesome. Can you take a picture of the front at an angle, so it is easier to see how the coupler is on? I think I might try this with my Airtech ballblaster.

Here you go. Sorry if it's still hard to see, you'll have step-by-step instructions when I do the writeup.

The first "layer" of PVC closest to the gun is the 1" coupler, then the second is the 1" PVC, then the third is the 1/2" coupler and then the barrel plugs in to that.

This nerfer right here is one big, mean lookin dude. I have had people admit to me that they were very intimidated and afraid of me when we had first met. Like I looked like that guy who might kill you when you walked down the wrong back alley. At 6'4 and 230 pounds of iron lifting mass, I dont blame them. I guess I wouldn't look like a typical nerfer.

The disadvantage to looking younger or nerdlier I guess is you miss out on all the funny faces people make after they ask, "What are you using it for"

Like if a sexy chikita asks you what is the grease for? Just say its to fix your grandmothers wheel chair. Otherwise things will become less flirty.

Nerfmonkey I am glad to see that people are modding ballguns to shoot stefans I always wondered what kind of power they had.

Kinda reminds me of Dewey from malcolm in the middle.\

SupG did you really need to quote his entire post? I mean that was massive.

I don't get my kicks out of you,
I don't feel the way I used to do.
I know its bad,
After what we had,
But Iím just not the angel you knew.
