Ok, this is my first mod write-up, though I have modded many guns in the past. I now want to contribute something useful to the NIC so I can finally feel as though I've done something. Also, it provides a way to get rid of that stupid barrel extension thing from the longshot pistol. Updates are coming soon.

Materials:
-16 to 22 inches of 1/2 inch CPVC pipe
-4 to 6 inches of that stupid barrel extension thing from the longshot pistol
-5 minute epoxy
-1 inch copper coupler
-lots of electrical tape
-a saw
-a dremel
-a small piece of thick cardboard

Instructions:

OK, here's the gun we'll be working with today:
http://img201.images...=img0124mp9.jpg

First, you'll need to open up the gun. To do this, remove all screws and, as shown in the following picture, pry off the large orange piece on the front of the gun with a flathead screwdriver. It should pop off pretty easily but, remember to pry it off evenly from both sides.
http://img250.images...=img0125dy9.jpg

This is a new thing I discovered on the gun. I believe it's a new way to try to stop easy mods. They drilled holes in the sides of the barrel so you can't just pull of the orange piece at the front of the barrel and shoot regular darts. Anyway, cut off the barrel right behind the holes.
http://img528.images...=img0126ib0.jpg

Wrap the piece of CPVC in electrical tape, leaving about 1/2 an inch of it exposed so you can attach the copper coupler. Make sure the barrel extension thing from the longshot pistol fits snugly over the electrical taped barrel, but make sure you can slide it back and fourth. Then attach the copper coupler to the "naked" part of the barrel. Make sure it is tight. Then, wrap some electrical tape around the end of the coupler as shown in the following picture:
http://img248.images...=img0127is6.jpg

Now take the end of stock gun's barrel (the side without the holes) and sand it down until the coupler fits snugly. Now cut the breach into your barrel (the CPVC one) about an inch and a half from the end of the coupler. As shown in this picture:

http://img444.images...=img0138uc4.jpg

Make your breach approx. 2 inches long. Then attach the barrels to each other with the couplers. Cover the coupler and the ends of the barrels around it with a thick coating of epoxy. Let dry. It should look like the following picture.
http://img212.images...=img0128ia0.jpg

Now plug the pump as shown in the following picture, I used epoxy.
http://img248.images...=img0130df9.jpg

Now, wrap electrical tape around the visible epoxy. Add 1 extra loop of electrical tape right before the breach hole. Now reassemble the gun.

Now the next step is very hard to explain but I'll attempt to so bear with me even though it's confusing.

First, cut off the front of the gun so it is easier to use the breach, as show in the next picture.
http://img175.images...=img0141aq3.jpg

Now cut a hole in the center of the cardboard so the barrel can fit through and slide it to the back of the gun.
Then use pieces of electrical tape to help stabilize the barrel the following picture should help explain.
http://img507.images...=img0142dl1.jpg

Finally, Wrap electrical tape across the front of the gun to add a smooth appearance to the gun. The following picture should explain:

Questions, comments, constructive criticism? All are accepted. Ranges soon to come.

Just a suggestion on the way the write up was posted, it looks alot nicer and its alot easier to access when you use the first link imageshack gives you. If you post that straight to the forums the pics will show up right on the page under the writing. It just makes it alot easier to read. Overall though good mod, the big blasts beat the shit out of LBB's.

You can post your write-ups in the Modifications forum by opening the forum first and then hitting new topic, but other than what Uncle Hammer said, this looks good.

1. Ok, Uncle hammer I'll try to remember to post future write-ups this way.

2. I actually like the LBB I just like the BBBB better (more power and less pumps)

3. Popping off the orange nub is very easy if you pry it off evenly with a flathead screwdriver.

Kingshane50, If you just edit your post and replace all the [url] codes with [img] codes, the pictures will show up, and it'll be easier for people to read the mod ;)

Otherwise, good job.

Nah, those are dynamic URL page links. You cannot [img] them.


I tried, the IPB won't allow the edit.


Yep, there's some things that even the mighty Invision Control Panel cannot do. But we can still screw around with your accounts if anyone acts up. :lol:

Kingshane is going to have to go back to his Imageshack account and fetch the proper image URL, then do the [img] tag thing. Until then, it's linkies all the way.

Copy/paste these into your post and the pictures should show up normally. One of them might not work though.

Though, nice mod, I might try this with the bbbb I have sitting around.
