Ok this is my first write up, and its kinda after I already did the mods, but Iíll do my best to make it clear.
I know the Doubleshot has gotten a lot of crap, but I think itís a pretty cool gun.
Ranges arenít great out of the box but with some modding I rather like it


I recommend removing the air restrictors in the shells.
Here is how to do that http://nerfhaven.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=5362&mode=threaded

Ok first you need to saw off the barrels.  A hack saw is the easiest way.
As you can see I decided to cut just in front of this screw, I thought it would be more structurally sound that way. 

Before cut

After cut


Then you open it up by removing the screws, donít bother unscrewing the ones on the barrels you wonít need that part unscrewed.

Here are the internals

Hereís where you can cut the string. 

Take out all the pulley stuff, you wont need them anymore


Cut a whole in the back end of the gun so you can put the string through


This is where youíd attach the string(you can use the stock string but mine broke so i added a shoestring instead)

This is how you attach a string to the cocking thing if you want to, or you break the normal string.
Loop the string around (ignore the smiley pencil, itís the easiest way to demonstrate)

Take the ends through

Tighten and youíre done


Here is a close up of the string coming out of the end

I tied a key ring on the end to make it easier to pull
This is the craft foam I added to cushion the impact when it swings open

And closed


Personally I find this mod makes this gun quite a bit more fun.  You can now open it with one hand.  Its very Boondock Saints or Desperado esc, of course the fact that it is bright yellow and blue takes away from his, but itís still cool. 
The ranges are decent for a $10 gun and perfect for a indoor war.
I consistently got 40 to 45 feet using cutdown streamline darts
Hope this was helpful

Brilliant first post, welcome to the Universe! I love the sawed-off look of it, always so much nicer looking. I should try that, I've always wanted to try it with one hand...

Hehe a sawed off Nerf gun!

Nice Mod, seeing this reminds me that I should do something with my DS....

I'll either try this one or GC's.

Welcome to the site by the way, Psychoswan!

(Also...Sam N' Max rules!)
