This modification will improve range and shots per max pump and some additional mods as well.
So lets get started.
Open up your magstrike by removing all of the screws and prying off that little green nub at the base of the gun near the pump. Take a screw driver to the nub and pry underneath. Stick it in and wiggle, then work your way around the edge around the whole green thing. It should pry off eventually, If it is not give it some more elbow grease.
Now there will be this tiny little hole where air escapes in the front winged white peice. Plug it up with hot glue so it looks like the latter picture. Make sure the hot glue does not create a mound on the inside because I think it will hinder the guns performance.
Now unscrew the white cover covering the bladder. Then unscrew the the four screws on the end that hold the bladder snug against the gun. Then remove the bladder from the gun. Now that the bladder is out of harms way it is time to do some cutting. You are now going to cut/sand away the upper and lower guide nubs/lines. These things will get in the way off your soon to be bigger bladder. Cut them and sand them down so they are nice and smooth like in the following picture. Make sure you do this to both shells. I left the one nub there for the rubber to have something to press against.
Looks alot bigger now huh? This will give the bladder room to expand outward.
Now that your bladder has more room its time to take care of that pesky over pressure release valve on the bladders end.
Remove all the screws Then strip all the plastic away untill only rubber remains. Now take a 3/4" PVC plug and cut it down so instead of having 4 ribs it only has 2.
Make sure the plastic on the plug is smooth and wont puncture the bladder since it will be inflating and deflating so much. Now is the part where you cover the ribs of the 3/4" PVC plug with plumbers goop jam it in the rubber, then cover the top with a thin layer of plumbers goop for some added strength. Wait for this to dry 24-48 hours. Then wrap the end where the nub is in E-tape. This will protect the bladder.
Now add your jubilee clip or hose clamp over the E-tape. Make sure it is on there good. Now take the other end of the bladder and reattach it to the gun. Make sure the screws are in tight but dont twist too hard you could tear the plastic threadings inside the nub. Screw in that white cover peice we took off earlier and that part is now finished. It should now look like this overall.
Now lets fix those clips. We all hate how we can't single fire without the clip sliding back to its start position.
Nerf really needs to fix this. But instead of waiting for them, AssassinNF fixed it for us. Thanks to him I decided to put E-tape starting from under the belt clip all the way down to below the clip. It took me 5-6 layers of e-tape but I got it. here is what it should look like.
Now we punch out the air restrictors on the back of the clips. This can be done by pushing down with a screwdriver on the back of the clips where the "X" is. Here is a pic of a clip before and after AR removal.
Now the clip is stefan compatible.
This next mod is here if you want to take out the safety feature. The safety feature wont allow you to shoot the gun unless there is a clip in the gun. I left mine in but here is how you can take yours out. Simply unscrew the two screws on that green cover that sits above the trigger. The screws have been circled.
Then take out the 2 green peices underneath. One is long and has a spring on it and the other is short and has a spring on it. Replace the green cover and your safety feature is gone.
This gun is so much more fun to own now. With 45 pumps I can get about 25 shots off in full auto.
I can get 22 single shots off for single fire. at 45 pumps.
45 sounds like alot but the case can handle it. It used to only take 25 to pump it and now it can take 45 I havent tried pumping it more out of fear of breakage.
The stefan clip hit the wall 42 feet away around stomach level.
The Dart tag clip hit the wall 42 feet away around shin level.
No official ranges yet but its something to give you guys an idea.
Firing two clips. Magstrike firing two clips!
What do you guys think?
Comments,suggestions,flames,praises,ideas are all welcome.
EDIT: Upon further inspection of the video I think if I was careful on the trigger pull I may be able to squeeze off three clips. Also edited in more content.
2ND EDIT: The PVC Plug does not work. Your best best is just to sand down the OP valve button untill it is flush with the white peice. I wouldn't pump it over 45 times though.
