Here is my latest project I finally got around to finishing today. The main barrel on the Scout is a little short but it works fine. Tell me what you think.

Basically all you have to do is dremel out all the internals in the inside that aren't important to the gun. This is where the ammo holdres are. Then I took the circular sanding bit and carved out a hole in the bottom and out the front for the SSPB. Then I hot glued it in place and filled it up with Great Stuff.

EDIT: On the Scout all I did was ompa's scout mod.

Which barrel do you shoot with and which one is your back-up? I've not heard great things about the scout, but many people seem to love the SSPB.

^^^I was kinda wondering about that too.^^^

The SSPB would appear to be more of a "backup", but I've heard that a properly modded SSPB can outshoot a properly modded scout.

This is quite clean and well-done.

*WARNING: stupid idea*

Have you given any thought to connecting the cocking slide of the scout to the SSPB's pump knob? With a vinyl tubing tank expansion, it would take a few more pumps to prime, so it would just keep getting pumped as you use the scout normally, then be a backup shot when you need it. If you needed to re-prime quickly, you could just keep moving the slide, which would also cock the scout. This would also be a little more comfortable to pump, as I've always found those knobs to be way too small.

The Scout and the SSPB get almost the same ranges in the 40's.

About connecting the SSPB like that, it would be pretty hard but I am sure it could be done. Just not by me.

Yeah, thats the only thing my damn fingers are useful for...that and modding guns. Those knobs usually are too small, if not that, just try an external extension of some sort.

The brass mod worked for you? Sweet! I never had enough power out of that thing to shoot the ranges I wanted it to using stefans. All I wanted was 30 feet, and I never got it. Given, my stefans are weighted with 1/4 slingshot ammo, but I still was hoping.

Glad to see it worked out for you.

Ah, and very nice integration. Very clean and overall just a good job.

why not just twist around the pump on the SSPB, so that the pump faces you and the barrel faces forward, then just link it somehow to the cocking mechanism. it would serve you much better to do so, as many have already said.

Awsome.

It would be ideal to have the pump on the handle of the gun but I don't know if I could do it.

You're forgetting that the pump has resistance. If the same spring energy that's shooting a dart is connected to priming an air gun, the already whimpy scout range will be further degraded. Now if you could somehow reverse the action of the sspb's valve so that pulling pumps air and pushing just returns the pump, then you might have something useful.

PS The quote system on the new forum is so good.

PissBacon, I'm not quite sure what you're saying. Are you thinking that the pump would slow down the plunger, or are you saying that it would be too hard to cock both at the same time?

If you think the pump would slow down the plunger, you must be misunderstanding my post. I suggested connecting the pump handle to the cocking slide, not the plunger itself. The plunger wouldn't have to move the pump, so no range would be lost on the scout.

As for being too hard to cock...that's just a matter of preference. With an expanded tank, you could fit quite a few easy pumps into it before it got too difficult. Flipping the pump around would probably help quite a bit.
