This quick mod gave me an extra 10 feet with stock darts and 15 with stefans. I used some "scunci" brand hair bands that I found at Kmart ($3.50 for 14). The model number on the front of the card is 38205-A. These bands are 2 1/2" in diameter and stretch to 9 1/2". They are made from a pretty durable rubber like material and work well as a bungee substitute. If you hate the shock transmitted into your hand from heavy springs in your Jolt this may be for you. The clear band is stronger than the black and is harder to prime. The black band is pretty easy to prime and is likely the best bet. The clear one only adds a few more feet. I have been mucking about with this for about 2 weeks and have found both kinds to be durable. I would advise removing the band during storage to help preserve it's power. My experience was that a re-barreled Jolt was necessary. The darts mostly fishtailed like crazy with an ar-removed, stock barrel Jolt. Your mileage may vary. Surprisingly, there is no noticeable movement from the band during firing and it stays on during rough handling. The ends of the band do not get in the way during priming (although it does take a little getting used to). I had no problems with band breakage.

So here's what we'll start with:



Cut a few slots in your priming bar as pictured. I used a fiberglass cutting disk in a dremel. A needle file would work. I might try moving the slots a bit closer to the center next time.



Now simply hook the band into one of the slots and stretch it up over the top. Hook it into the other slot being careful not to get it twisted up. You can check the tension by plucking on the band like a guitar string. Pull the band around a bit to get it on there even. You can tell if it's mucked up when you prime it. The priming bar will lean to one side.



Bada-Bing. Done! Quick, eh?

Very nice. How do the bands affect holding it though? It looks as if they would make it uncomfortable.

Wow, this is pretty good idea, although I have never seen this gun before... Would this work with a Nitefinder you think?

People have been banding NFs and TTG forever. The Jolt is just a little harder to do, and I like the way he did it.

Nerf Doctor, It's almost un-noticable. The right thumb does lay against the band near the fake screws but it's not a problem. Priming is different though. It takes a little getting used to, just because it feels funky with the bands there.

You mean neutering. Neutering is for small animals, mostly pets, and involves the animal being anaesthetized. Banding is for larger animals, such as cattle and sheep. With banding, the animal is awake, although there is relatively no pain, just the feeling like when your leg goes to sleep. After about 2-4 weeks, the scrotum will fall off from being without blood and rotting under the band, while the area above the band has grown together as if nothing was ever there. Banding is considered the most humane method of castration, much more humane than cutting and the whole drill-clamp-twisty method I don't remember the name for. Trust me on this stuff, I'm in FFA.

I saw something I bet they used to do that on the tv show "Oditties". Super-Cringe inducing and gruesome/cool.
