I took the top extended barrel off and removed the airflow restrictor.
Gets about 35 feet or what the main gun of the longshot gets out of the box.

So the Longshot front gun works like a Crossfire.
To remove the airflow restrictor and to make the gun actually workable you need a Dremel
Open up the gun by unscrewing the screws (don't forget the one hiding under the cocking handle) and remove the reverse plunger part (the one where the dart goes into and the one with the airflow restrictor).
Take a Dremel and Dremel out the air flow restrictor.
Replace and put back together.

Nice mod, it looks a lot cooler now. You might want to sand down that rough plastic from the saw and add some kind of flashlight or other attachment to the top as well. You also might want to get rid of that duct tape and use glue and paint or electrical tape instead. I took the air restrictor and peg out of mine, but kept the barrel extension. Very cool and sleek looking!

That does look cool.
Almost like a mini-shotgun.

I also took out the airflow restrictor on my front gun, but I did not use a Dremel (mainly because I don't have one and don't like to drill into my guns *lol*).

It appears that the 'endcap' (with the black rubber ring around it) is only glued to the plunger tube in one spot; the rest of the area can be opened. I was able to carefully pry it off with a flathead screwdriver (although the plastic did not seem to like my screwdriver). The 'glued part' took a small part of the surrounding plastic with it, but by adding a drop of superglue I managed to glue the endcap back on (don't know if superglue is the correct word, as in our country it's called 'seconds-glue').

So if there's anyone (like me) out there without a Dremel, but with access to a drop of superglue, this might help; I think :)

I no logner have a dremel but just cant stand air restrictors. I drilled mine out with the head of a phillips screwdriver, then took a flathead scredriver and carefully chiselled out the rest of the restrictor. works fine :)

You might want to watch your spelling and capitalization. Google has a spellcheck feture on it's toobar.

I was cocking my front gun repeditively, and I think I messed it up. It will only cock if you pull it just right. Maybe I snapped something?

He mispelled one word Lancaster, ONE. You mispelled repetitively, so please try not to run around correcting others (particularly on what are obviously typing mistakes and not true English errors) when you can't even nitpick yourself.

On topic now, the gun looks cool. Isn't it big enough to get better performance from than only 35 feet? It looks too big to only get that short of range. It kind of reminds me of the guns from Equilibrium. Could it take a bigger spring maybe, or some bands?

He misspelled:
1. longer
2. screwdriver

He also did not capitalize. Sorry to insult a veteran, but at least get your facts straight before you blatantly insult me for trying to help someone.

Also, I'm not "running around" correcting others. This was the first time I said anything to anyone about spelling or capitalization, and I was only trying to help him out. I now understand that it is not always the people with poor grammar who get flamed, but the people who try to help them, too. I know that you guys like to be harsh, and I have no problem with it, but to be harsh on those who want to help and have been nothing but respecttful? That's not harsh, it's anger without a cause.

And what did I spell wrong? You're the one who misspelled 'misspell'.

ARRRGH!

At least you can understand what he's saying ok?

if he tpyred liek this ehd hve a probl;em

Just try to use proper spelling and grammar and if you do, you'll be understood much better, even if you don't have good grammar. I don't :(

A good basic mod for the front gun. I'm still deciding weather (EDIT-OH NO!) to get one or not. If you got any CPVC, brass, etc, you can try using that, though it might not improve the gun if it's plunger works like the Scout's or Crossfire's.

Is the plunger tube the same size as the crossfire's, or is it smaller?

I have trouble imagining a smaller plunger tube inside that thing.

With brass, maybe some o-ring work, and spring replacement, I have trouble believing this wouldn't be at least a decent gun.

I like it. i agree with ronster's comment about how it looks like a lil shotty. But,i'd like to see it attached.

Oh yeah and ronster,

Edit:Mine also tends to rattle and the reload handle does not come forward.

Der Exilen did you reattach the pump part to the spring that pops the pump back?
I think you need to reopen the gun up again and check that you have the rod in the spring.

Nice mod. I thinking about doing a nite finder+ Front gun integration, putting NF internals in the air-restrictorless- front gun. I can't find a good place to put the NF internals at the moment, and even when I reassemble the gun,( without internals) when I pull the cocking handle back, nothing is catching. The main Idea behind the integration I want to do is to be able to to shoot two darts at once by pulling the FG trigger, simaltaneously firing the NF and FG. I might do a rightup if I get it done.

It'll be very hard to integrate because it won't have anything to catch to. Unless you make a little part where you can put a spring in to help catch and carve out a space to fit the trigger I don't think it'll be done. I think that's why pump guns are easier to integrate. No need for a catch. Maybe I'm wrong, but I think it'll be VERY hard to integrate a NF into the FG.

I was thinking about that,too. But for some reason I am very determind to do this. For the catch, I may just remove stuff from the NF to make the catch.

I'm having trouble reassembling the gun. Can anyone who has the gun apart please take a pic for me? I opened it up a few weeks ago and now I can't remember where anything is. :P

Pretty please?
