Uruk-hai Crossbow CPVC coupler mod

I was pretty excited about this gun when it appeared at my TRU. This gun, to me, seemed very strange. Not by the looks which are dead sexy, but the way the plunger system is set up. Instead of using springs it's got bungy things around it to make the plunger go in. But this gun proved to be worth the $20 it was. Plus five for the BA sword that came with it.

Materials you need:
1; '' CPVC coupler
At least 1;7'' of '' CPVC
Hot Glue, glue sticks*
Rubber bands*
Electrical tape

*= Not necessary.
Rubber bands add more range and the hot glue could be substituted with Epoxy or Goop.

Step 1: Open up the box and here's what the gun should look like out of the box.

Step 2: Find a '' size coupler and place some Electrical tape around it. Then add a ring of hot glue around the E-Tape.

Step 3a: Insert the Coupler in to the barrel as shown.

Step 3b: If you are using two 7'' CPVC barrels for a quicker ROF glue the barrels together as shown as a speedloader.

Step 4: If you gun is complete up to this point, now you can add your bands, for a quick reference if you can't figure out how, look at the picture.

Step 5: Try the gun out, now that was a pretty simple mod, aye?

Don't know what happened to the ranges. But oh well. Hope you enjoy.

Ranges:
1.91' 11''
2.93' 10.5''
3.77' 9''
4.89' 4.5''
5. 100' 4''

Mean: ~90'

I am considering gettign this. Price once again?

Also, on your barrel system, I have done that too. In fact my clan member picked it up after me. But we had 3 barrels. Glue one more barrel o nthe othe side of another, so it sorta makes the shape of a skyscraper or A when standing up.

The price was $25. But I'm sure it'll only be $20 if you don't get the sword that came with mine, But I like the sword.

Woah, cool!

I have those at my TRU and I have my $90.00... Hrmm...

Nice mod! But I wonder if that 70' shot is common. I might do this if I get it.

Stop using those little faces. They irritate me. And you irritate me.

I remember you testing this at my house but it sucked then. I guess the bands did a lot for the ranges. Nice.

Yeah the 7 inch barrel and band did a heck of a lot, so I recommend using them if you buy this gun.

Thanks for the comments so far.

Since when are spring guns force limited? We allready know your brain is limited, and in fact spring guns (or as you retarded kind call them "cocking guns") are smarter than you.

Shut up you stupid little crap-fuck-face. He said; "cock METHOD". Shit-face.


Obviously the one month ban did wonders for you.

Also, very nice mod Sqiggs, I'd consider it but I worry about the tubing's longevity.

I am trying to figure out if you are being sarcastic or not...
Anyway what's wrong with the little smiley things?

I am being sarcastic but I'm just messing around. The annoying smiley things NerfMonkey referred to are those godawful ascii things like XD.

edit: sorry, misread your post. the smiley things are just really really really annoying and I think they fall under aim style typing.

I think the gun has to much recoil, and its hard to aim.

One of the guys in the Black Knights solved this problem by adding a duct tape'd handle to the front part, so it won't kick anywhere near as nastily and it gets a lot easier to aim.
