    I got my hornet for christmas and loved the semi auto capabilities and the fact that it was air powered, after playing around with it i descided to mod it to its best potential. I bought PETG off informer recently and used that for the barrels here is the mod.

    1.
    First step is to hacksaw off the barrels due to them beeing glued in :evil:. I opened the gun for this bit to get better access to the barrels. here are some pics of how it should look after (the 2 bottom barrels are finished, will explain how in next few steps.)

    2.
    now get out your dremel or if, like me, you dont own one the biggest drill bit you can find. once you hav your utencil in hand simple attack the inside of the barrel to get out AR's widen it for the PETG and so on. When you hit a white piece get rid of it but stop there no deeper. drill the barrels wider to fit the PETG. see pic above for a nice comparison between drilled and undrilled (bottom 2 are drilled out already)

    3.
    once all that is gone and the barrels are wide enough stick your barrels in, not too sure of the best length yet i used 5 inches or aproximately 12cm. Glue isnt a necessity due to the tightness of the barrels but maybe use it anyway.

    4.
    finished product.

    edit: If one or more of the barrels leak during the duration of the mod do not fret. This happened to me multiple times but when the barrels where in with loaded darts they fixed themselves. Dont ask me how

    The second picture looked very messy, but the finished product looks great!

    Good work. Good to see someone using those materials

    not bad. I must say you're quite lucky to have a working hornet. I'm going to add this mod to the directory, along with a whole bunch that I keep forgetting about.

    Little bits of plastic may have gotten into the back pressure valves, that may have been why it was leaking. Don't take my work on this, but if you do the mod while the tanks are pressurised it may help to keep plastic out of the tanks. Because the pressure in the tanks holds the valves shut.

    Agreed with Roger I have 3 none of them work very well at all. How are the ranges on yours, did the barrels improve it significantly?

    definitely. I havnt measured exactly but they more often than not hit the little window on my front door from the back of my house (about 10m). But as always the hornet can have a little difficulty with consistency. All this said I have only used streamlines in it (still need hot glue for informers dart materials).

    edit: and that isn't taping the glass that is hitting with force, if it was a person they would know.

    turns out that there are infact fatal leaks when there are no darts loaded. But when there is a dart in the leaking barrel it does not effect it (cant explain why that is) but it is. Leak is in the first barrel.
