Here is the modification you should to do to your X-bow. It doesn't have all of the barrels, but you can make your own depending on your darts. Here is the Bow itself in it most current picture (not updated)-

That is the bow on the bottom, and the barrells above the gun. First off buy these-

Posted Image

Buy one 1/2 in male PVC coupler and as many 1/2 in female PVC couplers as you want. You should have a crossbow. Open it up and take out the yellow tubing with the spring in it. It really limits your ability to fire by limiting your airflow. Then take the existing barrel and keep it, there are many uses for it.

Forget about the female couplers for now. Cut a 1 inch piece of PVC and make it as flat as you can. Stick it in the coupler and use a small hammer and lots of soft hits to get it all the way in there. Then take that free end of PVC and put it on the end of the plunger (large yellow tank thing). I used hot glue and copious amounts of E-Tape, but you can use Epoxy or Marine Epoxy if that doesn't work for you. Your coupler is probably different from mine, so when you attach your PVC/Coupler combination it should stop at the lip of the Crossbow's shell. If you haven't already dremeled out the case do so now. Just cut down the shell until the coupler fits in easily. Do this to both halves of the shell.

Now if you want to replace the spring of the Crossbow with the spring from a DT3 Arrow Shooter. The gun will not need any reinforcement for this. Now that the internal work is done we will move on to the barrels.

For a CPVC Barrel (Las Cruces has no brass) take your female coupler and put in a CPVC to CPVC coupler and hot glue the CPVC coupler into the female coupler. Make sure this stays, it is permanent. Take an 11inch piece of CPVC and place it in the CPVC coupler. This is where you load the dart.

Posted Image

That is the finished CPVC barrel. This is how you load the barrel-
I have lots of barrels now. I currently have a barrel for-
Larger Micros (Sch. 80 PVC)
Stock Micros (Crayolas nested in PVC)
Smaller Micros (Crayla nested in a Glue Stick Body)
Normal Micros (CPVC)
CDTS (Converted Dart Tag Stefans) (Sch. 80 Nipple Piping)
Megas (PVC)
Nested Megas (Glue Stick Body)
Aggro's (1/2 in Female Coupler
Nanos (3/8 inch Steel piping nested in a crayola nested in Glue Stick Body)
Micros Nested (LBB front section barrel with PVC epoxied on)

Now go and try to make your own barrells. It is fairly easy. This system rules over a coupler becasue it allows you to switch out ammo fast and in a jam. Enjoy!

You can do this with any high powered gun, LBB, X-bow, LSB, and I think and AT2K.

And yes, I am still getting out of Nerf. I did this in my one month of free time and posted it on another forum.

Isn't it called UBS (Universal Barrel System)? I feel like USB might be for Universal Serial Bus port. Just a thought-

Not that this is a bad mod, but I believe the purpose of Baghead's mod was to be able to shoot any kind of micro from the same barrel. Another part big part of the UBS, is using it through out your team, so you can supply team mates with barrels if they need a quick reload. So your mod is good, just that naming of it is off.

Kind of a sloppy mod for an XBOW. But pretty nice.

How can you "get out of nerf"? I probably won't like ever "get out of it".....

I still don't understand when people say that.

I'm curious as to why you have the barrel of the xbow coming out the top. Is it a matter of taste? Did you not want to cut up the casing of the gun? I heard it gets better airflow if you put the barrel out the front.

That is not the barrell. The real barrell screws on to the threaded coupler at the front of the gun. That CPVC is there because it holds an extra shot if I need it, and it is longer in case I use a micro with a smaller OD than I am used to. I am starting to use a foam that if put in CPVC can almost slide all the way through.

You were at geddon right? chances are, I did... Who's the Biach Now?!

also, I don't really see how this is much like my UBS system,Yes you have multiple barrel types, and you can attach them to the same gun, but what make's it UBS?

Sam did cover much of what my system can do, but also there's the fact that ANY of my guns can Use the exact same barrel, and multiple Identical Barrels can be kept handy, as i can with my SS2, 2K, LBB, Maximizer, SM1.5k, and the X-bow I just sold to Daniel. As well as Both of Richard's 2ks, Cosmo's 2k and X-bow, Tone-dogg's Lbb, Flowbee's 2k, Amanda's 2k and SS2, and Pilz's Lbb and soon to be on his BBBB(big Blast). See, very valueable from a team stanpoint.

My new Micros, Bags, I know you shot my micros. Toj shot my micros, OMC shot at least one of my micros. You can put this on almost any primary. That mod for my X-bow was sloppy. Not all of my primaries use this, some use an RSCB like system. The good thing about this is that you can put almost any kind of barrell type with this. A real killer is using some 9/16 ID PVC, and yes I have some.

The only major problem I see here is that why would you actually want that many different barrel types? Why not settle on one dart type and stick with it? Cheaper than making a crapload of different darts, and you'll have more consistent performance our of your gun too.

And as a side not, I'll bet you Bags CAN shoot your micros.

You weren't there Falcon, but after Geddon, I spent about 15-20 minutes grabbing my darts from the community box, because I wasn't going to be there in a year or more. I had another person or two helping me and I ended up with a crapload of darts that weren't mine, plus, I cannot find the same type of foam two months is a row, sometimes its smaller, sometimes, it bigger, it really sucks. That is why I need so many different barrell types.

You're right. That does suck. Inconsistent FBR? Really? Is is really that bad? Wow...

This is why I love my Dart Tag Stefans.
