Yes, extending the spring to end of the gun by getting rid of the useless "Primed" window would increase the speed and power of the plunger. It would not however increase the volume of air. Not sure which is more important but both are desirable.

With this info I won't be spending the $30, If I had cash and time to burn though like Vinnie D. said, I think there's a chance of putting the longshot guts in this shell just for a different look.

In Topic: Rear Loading Maverick

I started a rear load mod last summer also, for the aesthetic value and loading ease. As with other projects I had to put it down when school started back up so I'm still fiddling with the idea. I apologize, I know pictures would help but I'm between class and haven't access to home photos.

In order to solve the seal problem I cut the cylinder into two parts. I made the rear of it a small disk, just the part the with the horizontal ridges, and screwed it to the gun where the air hole is. This makes the "just right" size hole the plunger shoots through stationary. The orange part within the cylinder came out and I cut off all the individual dart chambers replacing them with crayola barrels filled with small cork, a kind of buckshot shell I use. Empty crayola barrels also make for stock dart chambers as they would otherwise not fit head first into the orange ones. I felt it'd be easier this way then to drill out holes big enough in the rear of the cylinder. With steffans perhaps you could avoid cutting the cylinder and skip straight to the spring method of leak fix.

I had to alter the whole turning mechanism to make up for the fact that the rear part of the cylinder no longer turns. With the new parts this was a pain to get back in sync but once corrected worked just as normal. A bit of plumbing cement with it's springy when dry properties in all the space air need not be and a strong spring at the front of the cylinder to push it against the plunger hole should take care of the mavs stock leak as well as the increased surfaces the mod creates. A stronger plunger (nitemav) would make this even better of course. I know a stronger spring to push the cylinder against the air chamber has been done and was met with problems turning the cylinder but I solved this with another strong spring added to the turning mechanism which easily overcame the turning resistance while still allowing for a tight seal. It does make the trigger pull a bit stiffer however.

There is some work needed to make the cylinder pop out for loading with it being cut but probably not necessary for stefans. Most of this is done, a bit more is only theoretical so I can't tell you how well it works. I will tell you that it is not worth the effort just to be able to rear load. If I get it done I'll post it weather it works or not but my degree comes first so don't expect it soon. The possibility of single handed rear loading shotgun revolver does seem bad ass though.

Maybe a guy standing on some pegs with the T20 while another steers. More manuverability for the shooter anyway.

I think the biggest issue with multiple vehicles running around, aside from saftey, is the number of useable darts at the ebd of the game. Not sure how bad a go kart or bike could tear up a dart but it'd be harder to avoid running over them.
