Now, all of us here know how much the Buzzbee Rapid Fire Rifle sucks. At a cheap price tag and low-quality structure, it's no surprise. Here's a list of things I hate about it while stock:

1: It's poor stock range.
2: It's tendency to jam.
3: Basic shell mods (CPVCed shells) do little to help the range.
4: Catch is very weak and so is the shell ejection system.
5: It has a very weak spring.
6: The long barrel catches on the dart frequently and sends it out of control, killing the range
7: People always tend to break it as they tried to open it (though it was as easy to open as an NF for me)

Now, in NO WAY does this mod make it a primary worthy weapon, but it greatly increases the range while keeping the gun easy to wield and to cock the lever on it.


Anyway, here's what you'll need in all for this mod:



Buzzbee RFR
Disk Shot/ Old NF spring
Glue Gun
Glue sticks
Phillips head screwdriver
Hacksaw

That picture also shows what the gun looks like open, so let's get started!

Step 1: Barrel minimization

Easy, all we need to do is cut the stock barrel down to the very front of the foregrip, here's how that looks



That was simple, now let's head to step two


Step 2: Better springs

Now the stock spring isn't too good on it's own, but I had a spare Disk Shot spring laying around when I did this.

Here they are side-by-side



Here they are nested together



Now place them back on to the plunger rod and fit on the cocking rod that connects to the lever and put the metal rod through the holes where they connect, like so



Step 3: Re-assembly

Now it's time to put our RFR back together, here's a pic of the peices fit in



Now, screw the gun back together and test it out, I think you'll be satisfied



Sorry about that crappy last pic, but it was late, I was tired and that was actually the best picture of all of them that I took.


Ranges:
61'
56'
59'
64'
69' (good dart, wind picked up a tiny bit)

I hope you liked this. As I said before, it's nothing big, but it's better than it was stock.

You may want to know this, but reinforcing the catch would be a good idea as well, it's pretty weak. I am also working on a brass breach and uber reinforcements for it, because once the breach is done, I'm going to place an industrial spring or two in it.

Good mod,  I never thought that an RFR could be hurt.

Few things:
The ranges are with CPVC shells correct?
How afraid are you the plunger/head is going to break with the new spring (does it feel like it NEEDS reinforcement, I have a DS spring that would work good).
Where did you pick yours up at? I have always wanted one, I know they suck, but they always seemed cool to me.
Does any size PVC/CPVC fit in the stock barrel at all? I know Cole fit some 1/2" PVC inside his DS barrel... That could increase range most likely.
Thanks.

1: CPVC shells, of course, I'm going to try some PETG shells one of these days, though.
2: It already did, I'd suggest putting brass sheeting on the catch where it bends and the rest of that side, it's very weak.
3: I bought mine at Wal-Mart for $12 CAN plus tax.
4: 1/2" PVC works very well and fits in the stock barrel snug, but still needing gluing. I increases the range by quite a bit.

No prob, Most of these I mentioned, but I never got to taking pictures of.

Another 2 things... That sucks that it broke and... I am without brass where I live. Do you think any washers would work for this?

I'm not sure... You could always try it out, but if worst comes to worst I'll mail you some sheeting once I get some.

sorry, couldnt resist that. My first problem is finding one  sad . Anything else that could be easily done to the gun to make it better (no intergrations or brass breeches. I could maybe fit my CPVC breech in there..
**someone please remind me to post my CPVC/PVC breech this weekend**
