Ok, so I wanted a cheap, fairly durable springer to back up my X-bow, so I swung by Target and grabbed a BBB.  Here is what I wanted to increase: efficiency, range, and durability.   Some of these ideas originated else where, but Im bringing them all together along with some new stuff. 
Materials:
PVC
5/8 PETG
OMCs PETG
Hot Glue
Super Glue/Fishin' Glue
1.  Open er up and take out the orange barrel piece, and cut down the barrel piece, like in the picture.  You can cut it down further, but wait until later in the mod to do so. 

2.  Create the coupler: Since Ill be using OMCs PETG I found some 5/8 PETG that works nicely as a coupler when sanded out a little bit.  So sand out the bigger PETG and then nest it in some PVC, like so.

3.  Glue you coupler into the side of the orange piece, Im using fishin glue, but super should also work. 


4.  Fill the orange piece with hot glue around the outside of your coupler, make sure it is flat and level with the PVC.

Here is a picture of the barrel in the coupler with a dart

and without dart:

Here is the barrel nested in the coupler:

5.  That is the mod, from here you can do some appearance work, add a new spring, reinforce it, or a paint job.  I did THA's spring replacement and reinforcement mod and cut off the front scope.  I also plan on adding a removable stock in the future, and some more appearance work. 
And thats it.  What do you guys think? Good, bad, ugly?

Very nice work! I tried just slapping a coupler on but range decreases rapidly. I need to try this sometime.
