    Disclaimer: there are better powerstock ideas going around, it's just this is noob-proof and very inexpensive and time saving.

    It's not too complicated, I would believe just by looking at this photo you would know what I've done. Basically it's two rubber bands taped together over the hole of where the plunger comes out.

    Normally there'd be some kind of cover here, but it's gone.
    These are the tools you need. Yellow e-tape isn't as sticky (being from the reject shop) but they are more aesthetically pleasing than grey.

    So I put the two rubber bands at an intersection so that it makes an x right about at the middle of the hole. To make sure that they didn't slip out when the plunger was primed, I put more e-tape and linked both rubber bands together. And that sort of explains why there was a broken band in the pic. You could recycle them for this mod. I tried three sets of rubber bands but I found it a bit too hard to prime. I'd imagine it would make it better though, if you can pull it off.

    ...

    EDIT - 23/03/11, one of the bolt screws snapped off, but I don't think it's too big of a deal, but I needed to open it up to remove the loose bit shaking inside all the time, so I decided to readjust and range test this idea of mine

    FROM A BELOW POST: An update - I changed the layout of the taping slightly, and added a third rubber band. If you're not going for the looks this could be you. I goes about 3-5 feet further and the velocity of the bullet (I tried blue foam stefans) is also improved.

    Combined with all my other mods (AR removed, e-tape spring spacer, second o-ring, lubricant), my Alpha Trooper does about 15m flat.

    I actually like your idea! The only problem is you can't put a stock on... Although that leaves ideas. Such as doing the same thing but with the rubber band behind the stock of a Recon!!!

    What's the range increase?

    I think I'd miss the stock with all that extra force required to pull the pulnger back.

    You may be able to cut the black part down and screw it on. It'll take some effort but I think it's possible. That will allow you to add the stock back on.

    @killerbunny, by itself, I don't know. I'm not too keen on removing all the other mods I did just to see the range increase. But the impact of the plunger tube does seem to be a bit loud. But with all my mods (see first post) stock streamlines are going 50 feet.

    @littlebro, I think I can sorta visualize what you were trying to say. I hate Recon stocks, but I have one spare so I suppose I can try it out.

    Like what echoes said. Cut that black bit down until it's flush with the back bit of the blaster. Then put the recon stock over the stock attachment bit. Then wrap e-tape aroudn the rubber bands on the recon. It's possible with the recon because the stock still shows the R-Plunger when primed.

    Upon further inspection, the screw ports are covered by the elastic bands. In my head, you'll really need to work on the black part so that it allows the bands to stick out freely. Possible but very tricky. If you try it OP or lilbro, I'd like to see what happens.

    You'd need to destroy a spare plunger cover though, and then I didn't want to do that.

    couldn't you just make the e-tape as thick as the black cover so it would hold stocks properly?
    Or do I have the wrong idea?

    I would have to put a lot less e-tape, and with it being of the dodgy quality, it might not hold down the rubber bands sufficiently.

    I'm actually gonna get up off in front of my computer right now, go to my room and sort this stock thing asap.

    EDIT: just noticed if that rubber bands are placed further away from where the plunger is when uncocked then it'll be less stretched when primed meaning there won't be as much power

    Would the stock help hold down the rubber bands though?

    Perhaps, have a go yourself if you want. I have a dislike of the Recon stock though so it's more of a bane than a boon having that thing

    Anyway I was thinking where this could be better without sacrificing looks too much. Try it on the Reflex, since has protruding plunger tubes.
