I recently got an original ballzooka for 8 bucks and was thinking of modding it. Why you ask? Nostalgia.
I work at a children's home where the kids love to play Nerf (ages 5 to 17) in the house. A ballzooka was my first ever Nerf gun and I doubt these kids have ever seen one, let alone have heard the ridiculous clanging noise as ball ammo larger than they've ever seen is grenaded at them.
The gun works about a good as any ballastic gun does....ha... However, my curiosity is getting the best of me and I wanted to run some ideas up the flag pole before I ruined this gun, especially since I've never modded a gun before.
1) Is this considered a spring action gun or air pump? You don't pump it but I guess you push the air...so a plunger gun? I wanted to see if I could tighten up the gun inside to seal up any places air leaks out...basically more air power and either harder hits or farther distance.
2) Just humor me a little more... I also was thinking how awesome it would be if I could make the barrels longer....maybe buy another ballzooka, chop the barrels, chop the tops of the original gun barrels, connect both sets of barrels, replace springs with longer ones and hold twice as many balls (not too concerned with accuracy ... I'm aware the barrels wouldn't be perfect).... Would the gun have enough power? It sure as hell would be front heavy.... But intimidating.
Thanks in advance.
