Step 1: Unscrewing and Cutting Your Blaster
now you have to unscrew the back part of your gun. there should only be a few peices (barrel and a thing that looks like a cup). now depending on what length your barrel is you can cut the barrel of the blaster to the same length. if you look at the picture below you shouldnt cut ur barrel any shorter than i cut mine. (so u still have room to pump it, and its ok if ur barrel isnt the same length as long as u can reach it to put a dart in)
Step 2: Fitting the Barrel
now once you have cut the reactor barrel, the giant spring and the orange thing on it should come out. the spring is totally useless here, but u should keep the orange thing. you need to cut out the center of the orange thing so your barrel fits tightly in it. then you should glue it onto the end of the barrel. and you also have to take the other end of the barrel, put some glue around the bottom of it, and stick it down into the barrel of the reactor so it fits into the little hole at the end of the barrel. (this part is optional but u can also cut off the little black air restrictor thingy and the orange thing sticking out the back of it) and if you can u can also put a tiny bit of glue on the inside of where you glued in the barrel ( just to make sure there arnt any air leaks and that it stays in)
Step 3: Putting Gun Back Together and Testing It!
now once the glue dries u can put your gun back together and test it. i used a hollowed out crayola marker for my barrel. For ranges, i dont kno the exact distances but they r comprable to my modded nitefinder, its not the best, but for an atom blaster i'd say thats pretty good. Using stefans and a longer barrel would prolly help alot too. there is also another reactor mod on nerf haven (prolly better than mine) but i hope this works well for u. please leave comments and stuff. (if anybody even reads these anymore) =)
