Basically, I got this thing in a box of guns to mod for some contracts.  If any of you guys have the same one, here's a mod guide for you. Ranges previously were about 2 feet (Literally) and afterward, I'm getting 30-50' flat with stock streamlines.

Anyways, let's get right into this!

Materials:
1/2" CPVC or 17/32" Brass barrel, I think brass would be better in this application as it's a bit more loose for the low power of this weapon.
Some hot glue.
Some epoxy, Goop, rubber cement- anything that's suitable for a barrel seal.

Tools:
Phillips head screwdriver- Larger than for a normal Nerf gun, my main screwdriver that is the PERFECT size for all Nerf screws was a bit too small here.
Dremel, file, even some wire cutters if you're desperate- There's just a small rail of plastic you have to shave down.
Maybe a standard "Flat head" screwdriver to pop the thing apart.

Total mod time, about 3 minutes for screw removal using my screwdriver that was too small, maybe 10-20 minutes for the actual modding, 5 minutes for re-assembly.  Here we go!

Stock blaster:



Side with the screws on it:



Start by taking the screws out of the orange front piece, then gently popping it apart.



That little tab between the orange pieces there is what holds the bow arms in place. If you're holding the crossbow as though you would shoot it, grab the bow arms and twist the TOP towards you while pushing down and it'll come off easily.

Next, you can pull off the orange pieces. Mine came out with the barrel:



Here's the front- On the right is where the barrel used to be, and you can see the peg which is an AR.



Take out all the screws now, here are the internals.  Truly more simple than a NiteFinder internals.



As you can see, there is a blue tube (The one with the silver squiggly line going across it), that hides the clear tube.  You can slide that off the front. Next, grab the AR assembly. This is where things are slightly less easy.  I tried cutting mine here:



That wasn't far enough.  So grab a Dremel or a hacksaw and start cutting off farther down that assembly, until you just hit a spring:



But now, with all that junk cut off, you can see that this piece does not reach the barrel.



Grab that blue cosmetic barrel piece shown in the next picture. You'll need to cut off an inch of it, although I don't have a picture for that.



Hammer it into about 2.5-3" of CPVC, until it simply is snug- You want enough length from it to reach the cut down AR assembly.



I first slid the cosmetic barrel that was leftover onto the clear tube. After this, I applied some Goop to the cut down AR assembly, then put it in the blue piece sticking out of the CPVC. I applied some hot glue to hold it while the Goop cured, then slid up the cosmetic barrel to cool in the hot glue as well.



Finished up:



I drilled a hole in the priming arm and added a loop of string, this makes priming the blaster MUCH easier.

Hope you enjoyed, and if you have the blaster, hope this helped you mod it!

Nice write up Yks!

This must of been made before I got into Nerf, because I have never seen one of these.

A increase from 2 feet to 30/50? Nice...
