Well while we were out the other day going to some junk stores my brother found a Tek 10. I wasn’t really interested all that much because I think its ugly and figured it wouldn’t have much power. But he wanted to get it and at $1.50 might as well. Needless to say I wasn’t expecting much out of this gun but when I got a dart in it and fired it for the first time I was surprised to see that it fired about 40 feet (I paced it and I have a yard stride) now I really couldn’t wait to get it open. Upon opening it I was surprised to find a plunger and tube about the size of a Night Finder’s. Any way here is how I CPVCed the barrels.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ok first step open up the Tek 10. Be careful about the cocking slide it doesn’t come off very well, or at least mine didn’t.

Marvel at the odd insides for a second. Take your time taking off the turret there are three pieces that are part of it and the spring falls off and you could lose it.

Posted Image

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once you have the turret off. Look at the front of the gun’s turret there is a small screw holding a bracing piece in. Remove the Screw and the brace should come off easily.

Posted Image

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now take your time and pry off the turret housing from the base of the turret. Take your time and it will come off with out breaking. I used a knife blade to pry it open, just be careful if you use a knife to pry on the turret.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once you get it all pried off you will have the base with the pegs, and the turret housing. It should look something like this.

Posted Image

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Then toss the turret housing aside your not going to be needing it any more. Take the turret base and cut the pegs off of it. Try to make them relatively flush.

Posted Image

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Then reattach the brace piece you removed a little bit ago using the same screw. Make sure it is aligned properly to match up with the barrels you will be adding. Then start gluing your barrels to the gun . Use the brace as a guide. I would recommend gluing the barrel to the brace as well as the base of the turret for added strength. Be careful not to leak your glue into the inside of the turret where the spring goes. If you do take the time to clean it up, other wise the rotation mech will not work right because there is not enough resistance on the pieces for them to catch and turn.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It should look something like this when you get all done.

Posted Image

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------\

Now just put the turret back into the gun the same way it was when you took it out.

Posted Image

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ranges after I CPVCed this gun were astounding to me. It averaged out to about 54 Feet! Again I paced so I may be off just a little bit. I just couldn’t believe the power this has for a spring powered turret gun. It is a little bit big for a secondary but I would be tempted to use it in a war if I could get it away from my brother long enough.

Questions and comments welcome.

I mod nerf guns so they look good. So leave my scopes, doodads, and trinkets alone I like them. I don't mind the weight and I started out that way on toy guns and its not going to change.

Well now I just have to go out and buy the Tek 6 as well and do this. I wonder if the newer tek 10s (that look slightly nicer) have weaker or stronger springs... The old style Tek 10 (the one you modded) I found at value village seems pretty weak to me, but the new one I had bought a while ago seemed more than decent with power for something with 10 barrels.

Great mod, I was never sure how to open the barrel assembly. I'm always wary of prying things apart.

Nice, Do Tek 10's barrel turns automatically? If it does, does it go farther than the DartTag's when PVCed?

Yes it turns automaticly, when you cock it rather then when you fire it like the Mav.

I don't own a dart tag gun so I cant tell you for sure.

z-man you are right about the maverick's cocking mechanism. It rotates when you pull trigger, my friends is so overused, when you shoot it, you have to slowly pull the trigger. Otherwise it doesn't rotate enough and you have a weak shot/misfire.

Psssh tell me about it. But school is tomorrow for me :D.No more waking up at 9:30.Anyway the mod will probably be better if you make your darts a bit smaller because the cpvc is a tight fit for most darts.

Your posts were utter shit until a few days ago so I would suggest not making worthless posts in topics you don't care about, just to complain about new people not following the rules.

Just a little advice.

Nice mod, for some reason my friend is obsessed with tek 10's and tek 6's, and maybe I can help him make them not suck.

And what's with that FoamForce guy? He posts complementing your mod, and then gets himself banned because of his topic stating "Nerf sucks? I do not understand.

If you are using micro-sized darts (that is, ones that are about the same size as the ones that come with just about every blaster these days), then 1/2" CPVC is what you are looking for.

Really, though, you should just use whatever fits your darts well and is appropriate to the blaster and modification. For a Tek 10, that means a relatively tight fitting barrel...it should be hard to get your darts in, but not so hard that you have to jam them in. CPVC may be a little too tight, but it's not a terrible barrel material for something like a Tek 10.

Important
Also, use the shift button and punctuation! It is a rule here that we must use proper spelling and grammar. See here, and I highly suggest that you read this as well.

It's for your own benefit that you follow all of those rules.

Try not to necro threads; it tends to irritate pretty much everyone on the boards, especially the admins, who tend to not be in a good mood at any given point in the day.

Also, do try to use proper capitalization. Remember, I don't make the rules, I just enforce them.

Here is a Tek 10 mod. It looks like you just unscrew the front of the turret, and then slowly pull it out, being careful to avoid losing the springs or any of the other small parts to the gun.

"Once you have the turret off. Look at the front of the gun’s turret there is a small screw holding a bracing piece in. Remove the Screw and the brace should come off easily."

Without a circled picture on your part, I really can't help you much more than that. The mod pretty much tells you how to take it apart piece by piece.

And what part about proper capitalization did you not understand? Please use it. Do not force my hand. The CoC is there for a reason. I enforce it, and right now, you're really not doing a good job of following it.

You're on strike one, two more and you're gone. I will happily rescind strikes if you show a marked improvement.
