I've been in to Nerf for 2 years now. I've been a member of NH for almost 2 years.

During those almost 2 years, I have filled the boards with dumb noobish questions, and contributed almost nothing.

Today that changes.

I give you my first mod write-up.

The Lanard "Really Shitty When it's Stock" Triple Shot.

Posted Image

I picked this spring gun up during a trip to Value Village for $2 CAD, it even came with one of the stock megas. So naturally, the first thing I did with it was perform a stock range test. This is where it got its nickname. Cock the gun, pull the trigger, watch the dart flail through the air and land 5' in fron of you. By now I'm pumped because I might be able to turn the Lanard "Really Shitty When it's Stock" Triple Shot in to the Lanard "Not so shitty when it's modded" Triple Shot.

Let's get started.

For this mod, you will need:

-Phillips Scrwdriver
-Dremel with grinding attachment
-Goop/Epoxy
-Hotglue
-9" of 17/32 Brass Tubing

First thing we do is take out all the screws. Take them out, but don't try to pull the gun open, it's closed internally somewhere and I didn't feel like breaking anything. Besides, the only thing we'll be working on is the turret. All the air restrictors are in the turret, and we're not doing a spring swap. Pry the front of the gun open just enough to pull out the turret, let the gun snap shut, and put it aside. We won't be needing it until the end.

Here's what we'll be working on today.


Posted Image

See those three screws? Take them out, but don't lose them.


Posted Image

Now you should be able to take the red "cap" off. Do that now.
Next you need to snap the yellow "barrels off. You can get rid of the barrels, but we'll be needing the rest of the turret later.


Posted Image

Now Dremel/Sand/Grind the yellow barrel stubs down.


Posted Image

Now slap you barrels on there over top of what's left of the stubs. I used 3" of 17/32" brass for my barrels. They fit my darts great for spring guns. Glue/Goop/Epoxy them to make a good seal.


Posted Image

See this red turret cap?


Posted Image

Make it look like this with a dremel. The holes should be big enough for you barrels to fit through, but small enough to still support your barrels. Now re-assemble the turret (don't forget the screws!!!) and put a bead of glue around each barrel where it pokes out of the red "cap" to keep them straight and attached.


Posted Image

Now re-assemble the gun. Put the turret back in the same way you got it out, by prying the front of the gun open just a little bit. Screw the gun back together.


Posted Image

Here's what the front of your gun should look like.




Posted Image

Here's the finished product.

It snowed and was generally shitty the day after I finished this mod (last November), so no definite ranges yet. From some testing inside my house, it looks as if it will be good for about 45' to 50'. Darts used were 2" stefans with 1/4" slingshot ammo. I'll have them up as soon as possible.

I thoroughly enjoyed making this gun "not so shitty", and I hope my write-up is helpful to others.

We don't have a mod for this gun in the directory so maybe Forsaken_Angel24 could add it. That'd be cool.

Any comments on how i could improve my next write-up would be greatly appreciated.

Now go shoot foamy things at people.

Nice job, I'd go for a spring replacement, its sometimes difficult to do with some of the more finicky guns. What you have there, I think it has potential.

Discretion is the better part of valor, thats why I carry a very big axe.

You can fool some people all of the time and everyone some of the time, but you cant fool all the people all of the time, but it sure is fun trying.

What have I got in my pocket? (tolkien)

If I remember right this thing is around the size of a first shot but fired smaller arrows.

The reason I think why you werent able to get the gun open is because of a beefy screw under the purple nub under the cocking lever. You need a flat head screw driver or something of the like to pry out the nub.

Nice write up. I always love it when I see a new write up that nobody has done before. I was more excited to see this than then the past 5 nitefinder write ups. With the exception of Kbarkers because that thing was pretty cool.

Always have internal pics. I know you said you couldnt get the gun open but try your best to figure out why, then overcome that obstacle and get her shell off to show the rest of the community how her guts work.

Your contribution has been added to the directory.

That's a pretty cool mod, nice job on the first write up. I always enjoy seeing people mod less-known guns, or ones that are titled as horrible. Does the lever rotate the turret, or is it manual rotate?

Forsaken_Angel24

That would make sense. The purple nub seemed to be what was holding it together. I'll head to the garage and give it a shot.

RaZeR_ShArP

It is about the size of the first shot, like FA24 said. It just shoots megas instead of arrows.

Retiate

The lever rotates the turret and cocks the gun at the same time. It's got the saftey in it just like the Maxshot, so the gun can't fire unless the lever is all the way down. I think I'll leave the saftey in because I hate having the lever snap down on my finger when I fire it as it does whith my friends Maxshot.

Oh I think you misunderstood what I wrote. This thing came with three small arrows new in the box. I am sure megas could fit over the rods but the gun did in fact come with small arrows.

I did get it at Value Village, so I'm sure you're right.

But, it is about the size of a First Shot.

For a turreted first shot (what it seems like), not too bad.

In fact, good job.
