This modification courtesy of General Cole. Thanks GC!



Well when I got my EaB a few weeks back I loved it.  Scope and all.  Next I looked at my emergency supplies bucket of pipe and knives to mod on the road and looked at my measly pieces of pipe.  I opened her up and saw this.



Except because of my lack of long pipe sections I had to work with a 4.5ish barrel.  I took a piece of 3/8 steel with a rough edge and started cutting the orange plastic out of the original barrel with a spring.  Once I took out a fair amount of plastic I took my barrel with a few layers of duct tape until it was snug and stuck it in there.  I then added the pieces needed to hold the extending barrel in and put them back in so that it would stay in (This Part).



I then added the old spring from the barrel where it was.  My EaB's plunger rod is weak just before the old "O-Ring" so I couldn't add springs.  I put a small bead of hot glue into the area around the barrel.



After letting it sit overnight I whipped it out the gun and a few darts.  I grabbed a thicker one and went out and fired it.  Here are results-

Tight Dart (Had to Ramrod)- 52'
Medium Dart (Blew in but it was still hard)- 61'
Loose Dart (Blew Back)- 85', 94' (I think the wind caught it a bit), 89', 81'

And that is with no banding and no long barrel and no extra spring.
