This write up will not go into detail on how I did things that have already been posted, such as singling the Longshot and painting the gun. Quite a few of my pictures are too blurry to post, so there ARE some holes in the write-up. Sorry.
First, cut up the front end and the front gun and integrate the shell. There is a nice write up somewhere, so I'm not going to explain it.
Then, you need to clear out all the plastic in the front gun shell, and a bunch in the magazine well. This will make room for the AT2K tank and pump. (the second picture isn't cleared out, that was the "before" picture)
Now, take out your AT2K pump and tank. Get a new tube to connect the tank and pump. I used one from an AT3K.
Get the desired length of barrel. I used CPVC.
If you've ever tried this, you know the CPVC has too small of an inner diameter to fit over the tank lip. You need to dremel out the inside of the CPVC for it to slide over.
Once it fits, Goop it on. I added e-tape after just to make it cleaner.
Test fit the pump and tank in the shell. It took a while of fitting, but it will go in.
Then, hot glue everything down. Also, add a wire to the firing pin, and pop it out the hole where the magazine release used to go. Tie a key ring on it, and you're good to go.
Now, cut the head off the pump, and glue it to a metal rod. I got mine from an old airsoft gun, but I'm sure you can find something that will work. Glue the head to the rod.
Now's the time to plug your pump.
Drill a hole in the end of the rod for the priming handle to fit. I didn't want to glue this on, just in case I have to open the gun again.
The picture of all the internals was too blurry to show, and I really don't want to open the gun again. I also added cardboard in the magazine well and under the bolt for looks. Then I painted it.
Ranges: Flat, in grass. very little dart skip. Average range, measured quickly from strides.
Longshot- 80-90' flat
AT2K- 60' flat
