Well, since I've been in the 'haven for a while I thought I'd might as well put in my contribution to the NIC so, here it goes:

A Singled Airtech 2000

Supplies needed:

One Airtech 2000

Hotglue

Phillips screwdrivers

5 min. set Epoxy

Duct tape or Electric tape

6-8 inch segment of PETG

An old rag or T-shirt


So go ahead and open 'er up. You won't need the turret for this mod so go and put it somewhere safe and do not throw it away. Be careful though when you open it up 'cause some of the gun is glued together. it should look something like this

Next put the PETG on the small white thing at the very front of the gun.


The white thing I'm talking about is this

Stick it on there, and cover it with Epoxy. Then while the that is drying, plug the pump. Plug the pump by taking a dab of hotglue and plugging that little hole at the end of the pump rod. It should look like this after you're done

Now that your barrel is dry, go and make it stronger by covering that with tape. I used duct tape.
Posted Image

Then, take that old rag and stuff it down in there to make sure the barrel won't move even more and then cover that with whatever tape you want to use.

Then you should be finished. here's the finished product :o

I know the duct tape looks fugly but its all I have.

This is my first modification write-up so I hope you guys like it.

Questions? Comments? Flames?

Thanks

I like it. I like the trends of cheap "every-man" mods. It may not be the most pleasant to look at, but it's cheap and a works for you. God mod.

The "white thing" is actually the air tank. I'm guessing the ranges are normal? 80-90ft? Nice mod.

I did something similiar to my at2k. Instead of epoxing it to the airtank, I wrapped e-tape aronud it. It fits snug, and it acts as a coupler too.

Good job. I like how you thought of using the rag for extra stabilization/reduced movement. Any ranges?

Another way to keep the barrel stable is you can cut a piece of cardboard to fit inside there, and then hotglue it in place.

And if it was a plunger gun, the rag would act as a shock absorber/ silencer. So it's not a bad idea by any stretch of the imagination... :o .

bogboogalars: I tried that and couldn't cut to the right size so I just tried the rag.

Everyone else: I don't have a measuring tape but I guess that my yard is about 100ft long and it goes about that far or around there.

Silencer: Actually the rag T-shirt thing was in Lordofthering434's at2k mod. But it still works pretty well.

Since you couldn't cut the cardboard to the right size I figured Id suggest spray foam... then just cut and sand it down... Just an option...I like your way for noobs though.

Thickwall. I use the grey FBR you buy at Fred meyer and thickwall seemed pretty snug with my darts.
