After months of tweaking and testing, I have finally turned my xbow into a machine. This will give people an alternative to your standard micro breech mod, which did not work so hot for me. I personally use micros, except for this gun. The xbow is quite accurate with megas.
I named my gun singapore, or for short singy ( pronounced sing-ghee).

Now onto the mod:

I cut a 5" piece of pvc and after putting it into the coupler, wrapped it in e-tape.

I hotglued my coupler onto the plunger, marine-epoxied it (marine epoxy is pretty strong), and e-taped it.

Now, after that I had a killing machine. However, I like ammoholders and despise fumbling through my pockets.
So I made an ammo holder of pieces of pvc hotglued onto fabric with velcro straps. Holds twenty megas:

Here's what singy looks like:

And, if you want to know my ranges, with a good dart I can get 75-80+ and angled 90-100+.

Wow! I want to make an ammo holder like that for my guns! I'd hate to turn the corner and see that pointed at me.

Is it just the pic or is that barrel crooked?

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.

The barrel shoots straight, so I think its the pic...

ahh crap, I placed the coupler in wrong. Thanks for pointing that out. It's still accurate, but now it will be better.

I might actually do this to my X-bow but don't you think the barrel is alittle short?

For megas, you want a short barrel.
I experimented with 4 types of barrels: the 5" one, a 7" one, and two much shorter ones. The 5" works perfectly with megas and the other ones lose range.

I'm not sure exactly what causes it, but most modded crossbows have barrels that tend to one side. Still, mine fires straight and deadly accurate regardless of the slight off-centered-ness of the barrel. Granted, I've fixed the problem (taped a flat wad of e-tape to the side of my coupler, and it pushes the barrel over slightly, lining it up perfectly) but I don't really notice any change in performance.

Nicely done, and good job recognizing the need for a not-so-long barrel. It bugs me when I see all these crossbow mods out there with barrels that are like ten feet long (slight exaggeration.)

Looks pretty clean. Keep it up!

Yes, the ammo holders look badass, not to mention functional. Makes me wish I had done that to my Crossbow.

Pretty cool seeing a Crossbow that shoots megas, bet they sting when they hit, lol.

thanks for the compliments guys. I tried my crossbow with micros, but the megas add a bit more punch and are more accurate. The ammo hyolders quite nice and functional, as well.
