    Big Bad Bow coupler mod

    Post  Roger Explosion on Thu Aug 20, 2009 4:19 pm

    Doesn't look like any of you here have an intrest in Big Bad Bow's. Why not? Well this simple mod should get you interested.
    Unfortunatly, i've been forced to use a diffrent camera after killing mine with a titan. so the images are pretty bad.


    So here we are, one Big Bad Bow, fresh from its box. fired once just to make sure it works


    Go and remove the front half of the body.


    We want to focus on the barrel.


    Pull the barrel off (no glue here, it just pops off) and you're greeted to the air restrictor assembly. you won't need the white part in the middle with the orange bit on it or the spring.


    Now here's the plunger stop. which is the back part of the Air Restrictor.


    Cut it back like so.


    Now take the orignal barrel and cut it off right where it ends


    like so


    Then take a 15mm Coupler and cut it in half. it removers dead space and also gives you 2 uses in one.


    make sure the cut is as straight as possible, or your barrels will be crooked, and you don't want that.


    Then glue it to the front of the barrel



    Now we need to get rid of this dead space in the front of this barrel


    cut a 25mm piece of barrel material. it can't be any longer than the ridges in the dead space area, or the plunger will stop too soon.


    Hot glue in the front first. through the coupler


    Then fill the dead space area behind all the way up to the ridges. Also i put a bit of insulated copper wire accross the barrel material to stop darts from being sucked into the plunger.


    Then stick the white plunger stop part back in.


    When it has dried put the barrel back on, and Electrical tape and glue it on for a good seal.


    Put it back toghther, and then electrical tape the coupler to the body of the gun so it dosen't rotate.

    ____________________
    Making the barrel
    --------------------


    cut
    x2 6inch sections of barrel material
    x2 1 inch sections of 15mm PVC
    x2 3 inch sections of PVC


    Wrap Electrical tape around one end of the barrel material


    Slip a 1 inch section of PVC on


    and glue and E tape it on. Make sure there is a good seal


    Glue and E tape a 3 inch section in the middle of the barrel


    Repeat above steps, so you have 2


    Then glue and E tape the 2 barrels together on the PVC

    Now you have a speed loader. you can also add more barrels to it if you want



    I haven't alot or range testing (because of wind), but i've been getting around 65-70 feet flat.

    The plunger in this thing is massive, With a beefier spring i could hope to hit 100 feet.

    So, have i piqued anyones intrested in this gun yet?

    Nice mod. How about the spring? Can it be replaced? Also, where did you get this beast?

    I went and edited the write up, fixing an area of Dead space behind the plunger head, and making a barrel for it

    I didn't get a good look at the spring, becasue the back half is glued together, and i couldn't be bothered prying it open. some writeups on Nerf haven have replaced the spring, to great effect.

    These badboys need to be imported from the USA.

    You must have forked out quite a bit of cash.

    How much did you pay for this in total.

    I ordered 2 Big Bad Bow's and a Hyperfire set (which i haven't got yet) for $181 US. That includes the ludricious $76 dollars US for shipping.
