He said "or drillpress" which is what I use quite frequently.
To drill out the restrictor the safest thing you can use is a drill press with a flat-blade wood-boring drill bit in either 1/2" or 5/8" size.

I am so so so so so so very sorry for bringing uot this semi old topic but how do you remove the actual plunger tube? I have tried jiggling, pulling, and all around fidling with it but it won't come out. How in the world do you take out the plunger tube?

I just bought the new longshot and, of course, it sucked out of the box. When dry fired, it sounds like no air is being pushed into the barrel. To fix this, I removed the rear restrictor that's blocking the air from getting through. This is the first mod that I have been nervous about. There is a lot at stake here, but it isn't hard to do. I see no need to take out the peg yet, but may need to in the future.

Ok, take the longshot apart. You'll need to get to the plunger tube, so take it out. Once you have the tube in your hand, unscrew the back of the plunger tube, and take out the plunger. When you look inside, you'll see the restrictor with three prongs jutting out of the center of it. You need to cut out only the center, like you would do with an NF restrictor. Cut out the back until the center of the restrictor is flush with the walls. The way I did it was by using a buzz saw bit on my dremel. You can probably drill it out, but I don't recommend it. Once the back is cut out out, you will see the restrictor spring. Take that out. Next comes the restrictor. It has a + on the back of it like all of the other restrictors. I was able to get ahold of that with a leatherman and pull the restrictor out. This should be very easy if you dremeled right. Here's the finished gutted plunger tube from the back:

And the restrictor:

I also added an NF spring and two o-rings to stabilize the stock spring:

Posted Image

Adding the NF spring will make the gun fire louder because it isn't as long as the plunger rod. It bounces and makes noise.

This is a very simple mod to do and it will greatly increase the range of the gun. I'll have video and ranges tomorrow. I also made stefans that work quite well. All that and more tomorrow at noon! ^_^




Cartoon Im a little new at nerf modding and my tools consist of a screwdriver set and hot glue :angry:.
Needless to say I dont have a dremmel drill and I was wondering how I could get rid of the AR without the drill.
thanks

You could try taking a flat-bladed screwdriver and hammering it through the three supports for the restrictor. If you do that, be wary of bending the bolt, though.

Also, please check the post dates. If the last reply was over a month or two ago, then try PMing the poster or searching instead. Just a heads-up before you get flamed.

Nail this guy. The thread's been dead for like six months.

Yeah, the screwdriver method should work, but be careful- if you cock up that bolt too badly, you're screwed.

Use pliers instead. I took needlenose pliers and twisted the three supports and they snapped and everything pooped out like it's supposed to.

You replied to a quote from almost two years ago. On the very front page I direct all members to the code of conduct which you were supposed to read before even signing up here.

The easy solution here would be to private message Cartoon with your question.

Don't reply to this, just PM him.

I stuck in a NF (ist generation) spring, but didnt remove the AR. Even so, its range has increased by a surprising amount! i got 35' flat which isnt great, and 57' angled (but not all the way. ill have to try out side later)

Its not great, but it definantly increased power a lot, and range by 10-15'

Range test

Very, very awesome! 99' was the highest distance. There was a light, swirling wind that could have either helped or hurt the distances. I held the gun parallel to the ground and was using the stock darts. As you can see, the stock darts are extremely inaccurate due to the hole in the hollow rubber tip. The wind throws the dart for a loop literally. Sometimes this helps ranges, sometimes it hurts it. I haven't tried stefans yet, but will soon.

Here is the internal pic of the plunger. A BBB spring plus the Longshot spring is a deadly mix.

{SF3G}pat 2nd Lt., the only reason adding a spring would decrease range would be because the seal wasn't tight enough. Get a tight seal with a strong spring and you'll have one heck of a gun. I think the seal is really good. When you pull back the bolt, a small nub comes up and the next dart drops in. The nub stops the dart from moving forward when you push the bolt forward to get thedart into the barrel. The barrel is only a little bit longer than a dart, so we need to increase that! If you want to see some video of the nub working, say so.

Ryan, thanks for reminding me about that hole. I plugged it and I think it will help. I thought you needed the restrictor to advance the next dart. Am I wrong? You are correct in thinking that this gets at least 100'. I got 99' with stock darts. Add a barrel and some stefans and we may be in buisness!

One last pic of the insides:

Posted Image

All in all, this is the best nerf gun I've ever seen! It's more comfortable, has a better rof, and possibly a better range than the xbow. A must get for anyone going to a nerf war!


Do you know how to take out the barrel peg so it can shoot stefans?

Yes. You also need to refrain from bringing up old topics, maybe actually read the topic you necroed, and look at the posts above you. Hope that helps.

Woah, sorry. I missread what you said.

Actually, this is something that has bothered me in the past. Go at it with a half inch drill bit. It should fall right out. Hope that helps. I've had this problem before too, and this writeup really doesn't help a whole lot.
