I posted this over on NH yesterday and I have a soft spot for small scale Nerf websites, so I'm posting it here too.



That's what it looks like out of the box. I was really surprised to see that it wasn't a complete rip off of the 3B. Instead of pushing the front of the gun foreword, you pull that handle just below the scope to cock it.

Anyways, get rid of all the useless stuff and open it up (don't forget the screw under the "Airzone" sticker).

Internals



Close up on the trigger mech.



What you want to do now is take out the plunger tube and pull it apart. These air restrictors should come out with little force.



Keep the two circle ones and throw the big long one away.

Now make them look like these two in the picture.



This is where the mod gets kinda confusing, but I'll try my best to explain.

Cut about 1cm off the top of the stock barrel so your barrel of choice has better stability, then push said barrel down the stock barrel. Remember those two air restrictors that I told you to keep? Put the one on the right down the top of the plunger tube like you would with a 3B, then put the one on the left down, only this time flipped upside down. Glue like crazy in the 3 cracks so you fill up all the dead space.  It should look like this.



While the plunger tube is still in two, wrap some E tape around the plunger head and lube it up (I couldn't do this to mine 'cause I've been out of it since October), and add a Mav spring or two (every little bit counts).

Put it all back together and you should have one very nice primary.

I get ranges in the mid 70s, but mine isn't airtight, and although the weather is pretty nice here, it's still colder than spring or summer, so that also affects the range.

To finish off, here's some random pictures of the gun.

Pretty nice writeup, although I still don't understand how you cock it. Is it like the Mav/Scout/DTG/Crossfire slide?

Thanks. Yes, it cocks like a Mav. The handle just below the scope is where you pull to cock it. In the second picture if you look closely you can see a black elastic. That makes the whole slide return to it's normal position.

Cool stuff. That thing has a huge plunger, I wonder if you could hit 100 feet with a better spring? Of course the cocking mech doesn't look so great, so maybe that isnt the brightest Idea.

What are the stock ranges?

Anywho, Welcome to Foam Universe!  angel

Yeah, the plunger tube is a bit thinner than the 3B's, but it's like an inch longer. Mine isn't even close to being airtight, so when I fix that and add a better spring/reinforce, it will most likely hit around 100'. Sometime I'm going to put a breach and clip on it. The cocking mech. is perfect because I can connect it to the future breach. With this kind of power I can gladly sacrifice a few feet for ROF the same as a LS.

The stock ranges are the funniest thing on the planet. The box advertised 40', but most of the arrows swerved immediately to the left.

Expect more Writeups and reviews from me in the near future.

Good job. My question: do you like the BBB or this better? In terms of feel and not accuracy and range etc. I have a CPVC, spring, and external modded BBB and was just wondering if these are worth it.

The BBB is more definitely more comfortable. The only reason I got this was because my TRU was out of 3Bs. Of course I got a very nice surprise when I opened it up, but in terms of comfort and ease of use, the Scorpion Bow looses.
