Hunter mod writeup

05 July 2011 - 10:35 PM

Hello and Welcome to Psychoswan's return to nerfing with my write up of the BuzzBee Hunter Bolt action blaster thing.

First off the gun is pretty lousy stock but that was a given. I bought it because its a new mechanism and that is intriguing to me.
First off I cut off the stock because I have big hands and they didnt fit. Im gonna add a handle later.
I also cut down the barrel, im gonna use it as a pistol anyway

Now open her up and this is what you see

Posted Image

two screws connect the barrel to

Posted Image

The rear piece on the bolt can come off as it is only cosmetic

Posted Image

So The seal is actually on the side of the bolt

Posted Image

And is transferred through this collar

Posted Image

AH the air restrictor. Grab it with some long thin pliers and twist till it pops off.

Posted Image

Now drill it out with a small drill bit. It'll end up looking like this

Posted Image

And without the AR

Posted Image

I nested a small amount (about .75 of an inch) of a roseart barrel inside the bolt

Posted Image

Here it is put back together and with my handle added

Posted Image


And is it just me or would something be awesome integrated into the stock

Posted Image

Im getting about 20 to 30 feet but its a fun little gun.

ACCIDENTAL DOUBLE TOPIC

Favorite Older Computer Game.

Remember when no one really had game systems and computers rocked?
My favorite game of all time is to this day Jedi Knight Dark Forces 2.
That game rocks like no other.

Doubleshot Writeup

03 May 2008 - 04:28 PM

Ok this is my first write up, and its kinda after I already did the mods, but Iíll do my best to make it clear.
I know the Doubleshot has gotten a lot of crap, but I think itís a pretty cool gun.
Ranges aren't great out of the box but with some modding I rather like it.

I recommend removing the air restrictors in the shells.
Here is how to do that http://nerfhaven.com...2&mode=threaded

Ok first you need to saw off the barrels. A hack saw is the easiest way.
As you can see I decided to cut just in front of this screw, I thought it would be more structurally sound that way.

Then you open it up by removing the screws, donít bother unscrewing the ones on the barrels you won't need that part unscrewed.

Here are the internals

Here's where you can cut the string.
Posted Image
Take out all the pulley stuff, you wont need it anymore


Cut a whole in the back end of the gun so you can put the string through
Posted Image

This is where you'd attach the string (you can use the stock string but mine broke so i added a shoestring instead)
Posted Image
This is how you attach a string to the cocking thing if you want to, or you break the normal string.
Loop the string around (ignore the smiley pencil, itís the easiest way to demonstrate)
Posted Image
Take the ends through
Posted Image
Tighten and youíre done
Posted Image

Here is a close up of the string coming out of the end
Posted Image
I tied a key ring on the end to make it easier to pull
This is the craft foam I added to cushion the impact when it swings open
Posted Image

Personally I find this mod makes this gun quite a bit more fun. You can now open it with one hand. Its very Boondock Saints or Desperado esc, of course the fact that it is bright yellow and blue takes away from this, but it's still cool.
The ranges are decent for a $10 gun and perfect for a indoor war.
I consistently got 40 to 45 feet using cutdown streamline darts
Hope this was helpful
