Here it is stock.

Here it is after I was done with it.

How did I get there?

Well I stupidly purchased this gun from TRU hoping that it would be good. It was not. The things max range was around 12-15 feet.
I also recently acquired a big blast with a broken pump handle.

I took a look at the internals...

...and I realized that this could be done.

So shave down the parts of the plastic on both halves of the shell necessary to allow the internals of the big blast to fit inside.Posted Image

You will also need to cut off the orange nub that would normally cock the gun. You cut this to make room for the Big blasts internals.

Now cut off the right amount of the black big blasts barrel so that it sits right up against the end of the inside of the old plunger tube. Wrap E-tape around the black big blasts barrel so its fits air tight in the old pluner tube. Now seal it off with hot glue.

Now lets add the barrels. I used OMC's petg, 9/16" and 17/32" and E-tape.
Now onto a small segment that is picture tutorial.
Posted Image
The barrels are designed to be ram rodded but the barrels can be removed for transport.
At the end of the barrels I took the stock barrel tubing that we ripped out earlier and e-taped the petg so it would slide into the stock barrels now at the end of the new 12" barrels. This helps keep the barrel straight.

Now lets add the trigger. Take your stock trigger and super glue it to the big blast trigger. I used Fishin' Glue.

Here is a video of the new trigger in action.

I am pretty busy and the weather is a little too cold for me to take this thing out for a range test but you can assume it would be around the same as a plugged big blast. With OMC's Petg and my red stefans this thing can defenitly get over 150 feet with 15-20 pumps.

My only complaint about what I did was I cut the plunger tube down so it would fit in the guns old stock but the stock was uncomfortable and it was harder to pump this way so I left the stock as gone. This gun could easily be improved if someone just took the pump shaft plus the handle from a big blast and put it into this thing.

I love the feel of the pump and the handle. The pump still rotates the barrels.
This gun is kinda like mixing an AT2K, an AT3K and a big blast all in one. It is also very accurate.

Unfortunately my Arsenal of modded guns is getting large. A little too large and I am only keep the guns I want to use or would use now. This is mainly because I am moving in the next 6 months. So I am putting this thing up for sale. I dont see myself getting much if any profit out of this thing only cause the gun itself was $40 to purchase and then when you factor in the tubing and the brass, glue, and most importantly time It is defenitley a loss. But hey I was able to come out with this writeup and I guess thats the most important part.

I may put up this XXL Skeet shot up on E-bay but I am not sure about that yet. The gun is strong and modded to last. Don't forget who modded it!

Pm or post your offer if you are interested. I will probably be taking offers for about a week.

Questions? Comments? Offers?

That's a nice mod but unfortunatly you spent a lot of money on it but. But still sell it on ebay. Those ebay people got CRAZY for a nicely modded gun like that. Look what Baghead sold on ebay.....

Make sure you that its a idiot and all of that and you'll make a $20 profit.

OH MY GOD. You got an XxL to shoot 150+ feet? That, my friend, is the work of the gods. I can't get the video to work for some reason though.

That is pretty nice. It looks cool and it's really clean.
So, did this gun alone cost you $40, or was it the LBB and this that cost $40 together?

Another good mod, but this time on a gun that I've never even seen.

It's not really an XxL anymore if he put a Big Blast in...it's a turreted Big Blast.

I'm curious to see what one of these can do with the stock spring and plunger and new barrels. I want one now. Nice, clean integration.

Yeah, I saw this gun at my TRU too. It cost around 30$(CAN) and it is not worth buying. For that price you can just get a NERF gun that's a lot better. It says it can blast skeets from 20 ft. away or somethingon the box. Although, if Nerf came up with a good version of this with their skeet thing it would be cool...
