Ok, this is my first writeup so try not to be too harsh.

First, open up the gun. It should like this

Next, take the plunger and dremel another hole on the side.

Then, take about 6 inches of 1/2" sch 40 pvc and glue and/or tape it to the top of the plunger. I reccomend using the glue.

Now, put it all back together, make sure evrything is in place

The Finished Product:

And that's it. Ranges are between 30 and 40 feet. Comments? Questions? Suggestions?

Why not remove that whole piece that you drilled a hole in?

And add brass and a new spring if possible.

That white piece is the end of the plunger tube.

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.

Oh, the wonderful Rattler.

To get better ranges, I think you should try to drill a hole in the center of the white plunger tube instead of an additional one on the side. If possible, plug up those two holes on the side so the air will go through the center. Don't drill the hole too large, otherwise there won't be enough reinforcement to continuously stop the plunger (it will crack after a while--personal experience tells me this).

Since it is such an old gun, you might need some work on the plunger itself. Wrap the head of the plunger in Electrical Tape and then spray the tube with silicon spray. You need to wrap the plunger head neatly so it won't want to come off when you fire it. Wrap it tight and clean the plunger with soap to get rid of any trace lubricant. Wrap until it is fairly snug.

You might also want to invest in another spring. I am currently using a Servalite Spring from ACE Hardware. It has a .080 wire gauge, 11/16" outer diameter, and a length of 3.5", if i recall correctly.

This should get you up to ranges in the 50's or 60's.

Also: What kind of darts are you using with this? I'm assuming stock micros or megas.

Alright, thanks for the advice. And yes, I was using stock micros.

I don't really see the point, why make a single barrel while you cn just take the ARs out of it and keep it a rapid fire gun?

To answer your question, the Rattler isn't worth it.

The plunger is around the size of a NF's, but the turret makes a horrible seal, and has a slow air input (into the barrel, from the plunger).
