    -_______________- Define sniper rifle, I'm pretty sure if you want anything more than like 15 yards, you're going to have to get a different gun.

    Right, except springers like that aren't really meant to be taken apart, and you probably could put it back together the same way. Also I doubt you will find a compatible barrel, well actually you may be able to randomly mod a nice AEG barrel into it, buy just sticking it in, bit of a waste as well, not sure if you could find a compatible spring either. And yeah guy everything? Not happening like stated, so many things won't be replaceable, I wouldn't even advise opening it up. Do what I did, sell it for 14 bucks and try to get a sniper rifle if your friend really wants one, or a AEG used.

    Have you thought about the possibility of it breaking after you upgrade it ? They arn't ment to be upgraded so putting a stronger spring in it will probaly do more bad than good. but by all means if you want to then go ahead...

    Maybe if you could spell barrel, you could get a new barrel. I think it's just a waste of money to buy the parts.

    lol your making a bomb dude, it will literally explode when the trigger is pulled. the most i would "upgrade" on a crossman is diy mods maybe get another 25-50 feet out of it.

    I doubt almost 100% that they will fit that gun.

    You still spelled 'barrel' wrong, along with some other words...

    actually *cough* solder *cough* together *cough*

    But soldering two barrels together doesn't work like that. It would actually be more effective to tape them together, but that still wont be half as good as just getting one big barrel.

    You see, when you put two barrels together, there is often a slight difference in the internal diameter, plus there is a lip in the inside of the barrel near the edges. This will throw your bb off and possibly make it less accurate then it was before. Trust me, it won't help you at all. And soldering is worse because A). its not meant to withstand a lot of force B). Is for electrical circuits C). Can get inside your barrel and screw both barrels up.

    If you want a good upgrade for that crossman, rip the barrel off and use it to barrel tag other players. Trust me, it will be more effective that way...

    Crossman and upgrade are two words that should never be used in the same sentence.

    I'll try to get it cronoed asap but I rented the chronograph so it might take a while but I feel that I should provide proof so I will asap.
