2 Modding/ Repair Questions
Posted 25 January 2008 - 06:47 PM
I've had a SM5K (early version) for a good number of years and recently the valvue release inside the tank disconnected. I'd rather not have to crack it open and repair it if I can help it. What other types of air tanks are usable for this gun?
I did purchase a SM3K (yellow tank) dirt cheap. I could use that one but I think I'd rather mod that one out to fire standard darts and maybe add a shoulder stock.
Now for the crazy idea. I've never really liked how the SM3K was designed. I don't like the pump handle coming all the way back to the trigger guard. It makes it handle very awkwardlly. Alternatively I love the way my Firefly feels and easy it is to manuver & operate. The innards suck and the accuracy is horid past 15 feet. I have a crazy idea to mount the fire system from the SM3K into the firefly. The major problem being the barrell rotation mechanisms are vastly different. I'd hate to have to pump it then pull the top slide lever to advance it. Has anyone looked into this idea or have any usefully ideas about it. Other than it's a waste of time.

As to the SM5k problem, I have no idea, I've never used one. Good luck with it though.
Oompa: FECES!? Who in their right mind would try that shit!?

I could help you if you wanted to fix it, but if not I'd love to take it off your hands.

Pictures would help to see exactly where it came apart. It is sometimes possible to do some crafty gluing through the barrel opening.
Seeing as though it's on the inside of the sealed tank that is somewhat impossible.
Also I would not sell this gun even if I never planned to use it again. It doubles as a prop gun for a costume I have anyways.
