I started this mod but then decided i should do a write up.

1. Open up gun(self explanatory)

2. Time to cut, Cut the middle part out, leave either side.

No need for this piece anymore

3. Glue a 5" piece of Cpvc onto the plunger, super glue with epoxy over it was best for me.

4. Dremel down this piece until the Cpvc fits

5. Here is the new plunger assembly:

6. Now put it back together, And you are done! Internals:

I painted it also, i still need to get the barrel but i like it so far,

Ranges: about 55' flat with taggers.

I realize some of the pics are big and some are small, this is my first experience with online photo posting, I will try to fix it, does anyone know why it wont let me resize some of the pics?

I've never tried to resize with Photobucket, which is what I assume you're trying. I'd recommend resizing them before uploading(Photoshop, Fireworks, Freehand, Gimp, etc.) or using picresize.com(Never used, but heard it's the best.).

Resizing images in Photobucket it really easy, simply edit it, change the size to Forum Size, and hit resize.

Nice mod by the way. Nice and simple, yet effective. Oh, and judging by the gold trigger, it looks like you kept the gun closed when you painted it. I'd suggest opening it up and completely removing the internals to paint the gun, it'll come out nicer.
I\m really liking all these new people posting mods/write ups and such.

Thank you Rambo i'll try that!

Retiate: I did take it apart, I just taped off part of it to reduce friction and stuff.

Ok I resized them to much but I got one to good sized, Good learning experience, Thanks guys.

Nice mod and paintjob, but I suggest you fix the angle at the end of your barrel. It'll lose you some range.

I don't really undestand why General Cole is making articles of clothing with my name on it. First it frightened me, but after a few hours I got over it. It seems obvious that General Cole is hoping to have sex with me.

I love that paint job. Nice mod. The only thing missing is the photo of how it all looks when all the internals are back inside the one half of the shell.

I don't get my kicks out of you,
I don't feel the way I used to do.
I know its bad,
After what we had,
But I’m just not the angel you knew.

I also like the paintjob. That is a nice gold color there. What type of paint is that? And what is the color called?

In my opinion there are three things you can improve your CF with.
1) If you can slip a piece of barrel material(I used 1/2" brass) into the plunger of the CF, your barrel will become perfectly straight and you will get a perfect seal.
2) Don't angle the barrel. It is proven to decrease ranges. Plus I personally don't like the look of it.
3) Your barrel is about an inch too long.
Nice mod!

I guess the picture of the paintjob wasn't working for me or it wasn't there. I really like it, the blend of colors look real nice.
Ah, you taped off the trigger. I thought that was what you might've done, but I wasn't sure since it seemed to stop right where the case was.

The pic wasn't there, i edited it in later. Sorry.
Does anyone know of something that can replace the metal pole that is stronger than the original, its the last part I need for the second part of my write up.

You could try cutting a heavier nail or finishing-nail to the proper length. You can also drill holes through the side of the slider mechanism that holds said metal rod so that it holds it better when you replace it (and the clips that hold the metal rod won't break this way). Kinda hard to explain without pictures...sorry. I think it's pretty self-explanatory though.
