Some kind of saw or Dremel
5 or 6" of barrel material of your choice
2.4 mm Flathead Screwdriver (you can get these in a kit at Wal-mart for a few bucks)
New philip screws (optional)
First part is probably the hardest. Getting the fricken thing apart. As most of you know, the Commlink has these stupid triangle screws. Hasbro obviously didn't want you to mod this gun. Here is a picture of the gun stock.
Take your screwdriver and very carefully unscrew all screws by putting the flat head to one side of the triangle and unscrewing it without stripping it. If you do strip it, take you drill or dremel and drill out the screw. This is the last resort. Make sure you get all screws including the one on the handle on the other side of the gun. This is where the batteries are put in. There is one to get it off and then one underneath that also. See the sticker all the way to the left of the gun? There is actually a screw under there. After all the screws have been removed the gun won't come apart. There is an orange part near the barrel that prevents you from opening it up.
Either saw that sucker off or somehow pry it off. I just sawed it off with the dremel. Finally you get the gun apart and here is the internals.
Take the plunger assembly apart. Here is the barrel and plunger tube.
The barrel on the right can be thrown away. Cut the little lip on the plunger tube off with you saw and sand it down. Next take your barrel of choice (about 5 or 6") and epoxy that baby on there.
After this put a little lube on your plunger head and you should be good. I was going to do a spring replacement but there is no way you can get the existing spring off so I said the hell with it. Assemble the gun back together. You can screw the old screws back in or put some new screws to make it easier on yourself. Here is the final product.
Now you have turned a piece of crap into a gun that gets ranges like a well modified Nitefinder.
