could I just saw it at the tip of the orange thing at the bottom of the tube and fill it with hot glue or goop? I couldn't find anything when I searched other than people saying that others should remove it but I never saw something saying how.

Why not just keep it on? If you absolutely need to take it off, saw the whole orange thing off and run tubing directly from the pump to the tank. It will be easier than problems you may encounter If you saw the guage off because there is a thin rubber membrane in the orange part, and If you saw the goo guage off, it may rupture because the membrane won't be able to hold any pressure and you will have to run tubing directly from the pump to the tank anyways.

I can think of 2 reasons why to take it off.

1. Less pumps
2. Space for integrations


There is no reason to leave it on. Cutting off the goo tube does not effect ranges (at least it hasn't for me).

*edit* grammer ect.

It's a distinct possibility. But seriously, that's all you could come up with? You are a terrible Troll.

If you cut it off at the base of the goo gauge then the rubber seal will rupture if you leave it as is and prime the blaster. If you fill the cavity with hot glue after that... just fill it up; then the rubber seal will not rupture. So that would, and does work.

1. This wouldn't affect the amount of pumps it takes, because the main point of the goo tube is for cosmetic purposes and keeping the rubber membrane from popping.

2. You're right on this one, but I would rather integrate my 2k onto something than something into my 2k.

1. Im pretty sure the membrane is what makes the whole cosmetic thing work.

2. Im pretty sure thats what he means... I am going to be putting a bunch of tanks into one gun so this is why i need it to be smaller.

If you cut it off at the base of the goo gauge then the rubber seal will rupture if you leave it as is and prime the blaster. If you fill the cavity with hot glue after that... just fill it up; then the rubber seal will not rupture. So that would, and does work.

thanks a bunch. I will be doing this

Here is instructions on how to remove the goo gauge.

I believe you misunderstood me... Im not taking the orange thing off. Just the goo tube. I have 2 other airtanks from 2ks I ruined by trying that method. I am now done with filling it with hotglue I will be testing it whenever I find my hornet pump.

I sawed it off once, and i forgot to put glue at the rubber seal. I pumped it up and it exploded. :cry:

I just remembered I did this because I was bored and found that a dime fits nicely in the space after the rubber membrane. Then I just added hot glue.
