Here are some pictures:
In order to do this, you must have a 1/2'' CPVC coupler and 1'' of 1/2'' ID CPVC pipe. I am unsure as to how well a PVC would work, but I don't think it would make much of a difference. The coupler has been cut nearly in half, but I left the full inner ring intact. The pieces are then to be cut/sanded like so:
The inner ring of the coupler was sanded enough so that it fit snugly over the air chamber as shown. I then used hot glue, though I should probably be using epoxy or plumbers goop, to bond the pieces in place. As you can see, the turret has not yet been barreled at this stage. This is simply because I am lazy.
A perfect fit, no sealing problems either. Though you should probably hot glue a small piece of foam around the part that the air comes out of (for lack of a better name) for a better seal.
A barrel fits perfectly as well. No sealing problems here either.
In this image, you can see that parts of the shell have been dremeled to accommodate for the new additions. I dremeled the part that holds the turret in place, so it can be removed. The plate in front of the air chamber has also been dremeled to fit the new coupler.
Here is another image showing what has been done:
And that wasn't even the best part.
The second part of this Write-up will feature an adapter, allowing you to attach the 2k's turret to any gun that has a 1/2'' CPVC coupler (or PVC, if it works):
(Yes, the turret is slightly angled because of my shitty craftsmanship.)
The adapter is as simple as this:
It is a coupler that has the same notch in it as the one in the 2k, but the coupler is full, not half, and there is a 1'' piece of CPVC hot glued into the other end so it can be attached to another gun.
Ranges have not been tested due to windy conditions outside, but I would guess ranges are typical for a 2k. If not, less.
