    RFR Modification -- Singled + Cocking Mech. Replacement

    Post  Frankie27 on Fri Jul 02, 2010 3:33 pm

    RFR Modification

    So with the influx of RFRs hitting our shores, I thought it was time to break out my old and crappy one for a makeover. All I had done originally was the bolt action mod (cut off lever and put a nail through the cocking bar)



    Tools/Materials:

    - Dremel
    - Hacksaw or Pipecutters
    - Screwdriver
    - Hot Glue Gun and Hot Glue
    - 1x 15mm Coupler
    - 2x 15mm Elbow Joint
    - 1x 15mm Tee
    - 2x 15mm End Caps
    - 15mm PVC

    Part 1: Drawback Handle

    Okay, first open that baby up:



    Next unscrew this piece and disregard it. Its a safety piece that prevents the gun firing while the lever is down/bolt is back.



    Okay, now remove the bolt and attach the 'Tee' joint to the end of it via hot glue. Then bang in 2 one inch pieces of PVC into each end, then lastly put the 2 end caps onto those. Also via trial and error, you need to cut out around 4cm from the back for the handle to sit in.





    Part 2: Singling

    Now some of you guys are gonna think "Why single it? The shells are the best part!". Cool. Good for you. I don't really care for them, nor do I care much for ROF in high powered guns. Range is my ultimate goal.
    Anyway, cut this tube:



    Now remove the plunger tube and break off the end piece that the tube was attached to (I used a good pair of pliers)



    Grab your dremel and open up the hole on one half of the plunger tube only(kinda like a Maverick plunger tube) The reason for this is that the the plunger sits to one side in the shell, meaning if you just stuck a coupler on as normal, your barrel wouldn't be straight.



    Now glue half of a 15mm coupler over the hole (see how its off centre?)



    Again, grab your dremel and remove these walls on both sides of the shell. Also open the front of the shell up a bit so the barrel can get in.



    You also need to cut off the bottom faux 'barrel' for your new real barrel.



    Glue in the plunger tube and reassemble. New internals:






    Whack on a 3 inch barrel and go shoot something 75-80ft away

    PS. Just an idea, you could run a RSCB up into the top barrel and reload it from where the shells eject. I was gonna do it be ceebs :p

    Cool mod this one. Even went and made my own. But mine still has the lever, but no bolt.


    Though really, its now just a big Nitefinder.

    We need to range test these, because I doubt you can hit something 80 feet away.

    Thanks, always feels good when someone actually uses the writeup. I'll get a proper range test done later today. That 80ft was just a guesstimate but I do strongly believe it is possible.

    I was thinking something bigger. Something which would make the RFR the secondary function of the blaster.

    I think I might go out buy one and try this, It is a toss up between this and the belt blaster, If I got this I would do this mod to it and maybe intergrate a gun with good rof into it somehow.
    Anyway nice write up.

    I was looking at the RFR internals last night, and thought of something interesting. It involves installing a Big Salvo tank in there, and hooking up the lever action to the pump. I might pick one of these up tomorrow, and have a play around with it.

    Hey Roger can you please post a picture of the internals of yours because I want to do this mod but keep the lever action.

    Its exactly the same as mine, minus the drawback handle. Just don't do that part of the mod.

    EDIT: Okay, my bad guys. I just range tested and it only get 60-70ft, much like a giant NF like Roger said. This is still decent though, as it more than doubles its original range. Plus there is plenty of room for an integration (coming soon)

    Hey neumein thats exactly what I was thinking. One Big Salvo tank (I have one lying around) in the top barrel and this mod done also. That would be a war worthy gun seing as it'd only take about 5 pumps for 100ft ranges plus a the RFR maybe with a turret. Awesomeness.

    But this it making a direct airflow to the dart. Stock, it has that dirty tube going to the dart, think of all that dead space..

    So I integrated a SSPB into the top barrel area, with the pump running along and out it.



    Not the cleanest job I've done, I've just gotta clean it up a bit then give it a paintjob.
    Anyone else had a crack at this mod yet?

    Where are you going to put the Titan tank? I don't see anywhere where it would fit, at least not without a bit of the tank poking through the shell somewhere.

    I was planning too, I've had a titan tank lying around for a while now, this should work well.

    To me this is screaming out to be minimized. E.g: stock removed, normal barrel removed. In fact, all the stuff that takes in the clip just taken out and then the gun integrated under something...
