ok open the bbb up. it should look like this:

now, take the barrel out and take these out.

then saw/dremel a little bit off the barrelso the teeth things aren't there anymore.
ok, on to the barrel. I used this piece of brass:

ok, now cover the brass with two to three layers of electrical tape. then put it in the barrel like so:

(if you don't care about barrel extensions, stop here) ok, i used this:

(it is actually the original longshot barrel covered in a layer of e-tape)
now screw the bbb back together and you're done!

Ok, a few tips.

First, use capital letters and proper grammar, it'll make you more well-respected around here.

Second, a picture may be worth a thousand words, but not when it's fuzzy and everything is covered in e-tape. Learn to use the macro function on your camera or buy a tripod. Use better descriptions and explain what you've done - you're excited about it, so explain what you did in full detail so we can understand.

From what I've gathered you extended the BBB barrel and added brass to the back?

Well about the barrel, i cut the barrel short enough so the teeth that used to be there are gone. then I took a piece of brass and I covered it with enough e'tape to make it stay in the old barrel and not get shot out.

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 Iím just not the angel you knew.

Hehe... sorry about them, they were bigger than I had expected them to be. I will try to do this as soon as possible.

Not bad for your first mod. A little bit more details and less-fuzzy photos will make a big difference.

OMG!!! I forgot to put ranges up, so here they are!

85'
89'
90'
84'
92'
94'

PS: Ranges were done outside with taggers(unconverted) Oh, for some reason my bbb sucks with stephans (gets about 45' with them), so, any help with that would be appreciated,

I am going to guess why your ranges with stefans are so short:

Your actual barrel length is way too short.

Your "longshot extension" barrel is the really long thing in electric tape, correct? I'm guessing that makes a partial seal with the head of the tagger dart, making your effective barrel for taggers long.

With stefans, the air passes right past the stefan since there is no "head" that seals (even partially) with the long ass longshot barrel..cosmetic..black..thing.

Possible fix?

Get rid of the cosmetic longshot barrel and replace it with 10" of 9/16 brass. That'll get your stefans moving (but your unconverted taggers won't be shooting as far anymore).

EDIT: the above post only makes sense if i'm visualizing your barrel system correctly. Honestly, i can't see what's going on with all that electric tape, so i'm guessing.

Actually frost vectron, your visualization is correct, and I never really considered it before, thanks a lot!

PS: I put so much tape on it because i like e-tape, and so that way the barrel won't shoot out every single time

Yeah, there's nothing wrong with e-tape.. personal preference, I suppose.

The thing about your barrel... it's almost as if you used 1/2" Sch. 40 PVC on your BBB. The head of the micro makes the seal with it, not the foam body. This is why you're getting pretty good ranges with stock darts.

If you used something that sealed around the foam body (of the length of around 10"), you'd get great ranges with stefans.

So if you use stock darts mostly, I think this set-up is just fine (while I'm not a fan of the longshot barrel because of the weird textures on the inside of the pipe, it seems to be working for you! 80-90' seems about right for a BBB). If you're going to be using stefans most of the time, you might want to consider changing it up a bit.

Looks good. I think I might do this mod when I get my BBB.
Yeah make the photo's smaller and clearer, it's kind of hard too understand what I'm seeing.
