|Mod Night! Fun times!|
We started digging into the Spectre's Barrel Extension and immediately ran into a problem... there's NO easy way to take this thing apart. After trying for half an hour to get it apart with flathead screwdrivers and pliers, we decided to hack into the front with a Dremel. The problems just continued, as we discovered that this little useless accessory has more engineering in it than a combustion engine. While I expect that we'll be able to make use of them, I was just floored by how much trouble 3 avid recasing pros had with that lil guy!
By our diagnosis, the Barrel Extension is mainly held together by the yellow middle section which is actually two parts glued together. We found the seam on it but were unable to break it open. The Orange tip and Gray connector are secured on the inside of those two yellow halves with the barrel running between them.

finally starting to pop after
Eventually we'll get a lens in there and hook it up to one of our Laser Tag blasters. For now, we're still getting over how much production went into these little useless hunks of plastic!
