I must say that this thing is pretty fun to use. Its got a big beefy handle and shoots five darts at once. I did an eyeballed range test in my home and found that the darts go about 20 feet.
Time to open her up. Dont forget to get the hidden screw under the "Airjet Power" sticker.
As you can see the pump forces air into a huge pressure chamber. I must admit I am a little confused as to how these valves work. I am convinced the valve works the same as the Sspb because when I pull the trigger I can feel air hit my hand. The trigger does not pull the pin on this air chamber but it pushes a pin in. This causes the gun to fire. Again I am still confused as to how this type of valve works. Maybe if I understand, I can modify it further.
Now pull out the red turret like peice and pull out the thick air restrictors.
Now chop down the barrels that go towards the big white pressure chamber and chop them down so they are flush.
Now sand out the insides of whats left of the old stock barrels just enough to allow you to put your new barrels in.
I used OMC's Petg and the stuff works like a dream.
Now in this picture I think I was using 4" peices but I ended up using 3.5" lengths of OMC's PETG.
Here you can see how you need to put the other ends of the petg into the ring grooves at the end of each valve. The petg fit perfectly into the grooves. Superglue them in first and make sure they are in good and tight.
Now wait a few minutes and let the superglue go to work.
Then push the red turret like peice up as close to the end of the shell as possible. This is where it is supposed to be sitting. Then cover each base where the petg meats the valve with plumbers goop. This will seal any leaks and make sure you get the most power out of your LB.
You can see in the photos I had not used the plumbers goop yet.
Also dont forget to pull the pump out of the handle and re-lube it with rubber safe lube and plug the hole in the middle with hot glue. This will get rid of the over pressure release valve and allow more pressure to build in the chamber.
There you have it, a Lightning Blitz that can now shoot alot farther.
I cut the petg so it sits flush with the red barrel holder and doesnt stick out at all. Now you can also see right down to the valve and it can shoot stefans and all that jazz.
Ranges: 15 pumps with little to no wind on a sunny day and shot straight was able to produce.
An average of 65' with streamline darts and 75' with stefans with one of them touching down on the 85' mark.
This thing is very accurate and it amazing to watch this pentagonal constellation of darts go flying so far.
I must admit this was just a small side project. I know its been a while since I released something but Forsaken_angel24 has not stopped modifying it is just this latest massive project and Nerf Assassin have been eating alot of my time.
What do you guys think?
