Anyhoo, my name is Foamfoot, I named it that because my foot is prosthetic. I have a few heart conditions (multiple murmurs, coarctation of the aorta) so if you see me at a war, don't be surprised if I slow down a little bit. I am against real guns and I play with teh nerf blasters, here is my mod.
Don't flame me too hard.
(sorry, accidentally posted it before writeup was finished, wait for a few mins for my mod)
I recently saw CS's tank extension mod for the Buzz Bee Big Blast, I already kinda had an idea but this solidified it. I looked at my 3k, and my bbbb and went to work.
Cut your 3k down like this, kill all the rotation crap.
This will go against everything you've learned, but drill a hole in Mr.BBBB's Air tank
My hole wasn't big enough, I had to use the dremel in the end.
Now in my first pic, the 3k still has some stuff on it, cut that off. I tried to do it like this, but the seal sucked:
Now after everything but the air tank is removed, insert some tubing from the 3k and super glue and hot glue it in (Note: I only have hot glue, epoxy would work much better.)
Then, insert tubing into drilled hole and glue/epoxy it in there (for hot glue, use low heat setting and unplug it as soon as you can actually melt the hot glue, otherwise hot glue will drip into the tank.)
Now for the barrel, I plan on ordering some PETG soon from OMC, but I only have Crayola markers, and the bbbb needs a longer barrel than one marker, so I made somewhat of a breakthrough
Cut down a Buzz Bee (RFR, Double Shot, Mustang Six) Shell to the wide part only:
Then, simply put hot glue on the OUTSIDE[u] of the marker and stick it in half of the shell piece, do the same with the other hollowed out marker on the other side.
There you have it, a crayola marker barrel that doesn't suck.
now put the DMB (double marker barrel) or any other barrel on either the BBBB or the AT3K. Put a barrel on each preferably (I only had 2 markers though)
Now, because there is only one check valve, the 3k serves as both a second barrel (that while you do have to pump, you don't need to put another dart in for two shots) and a tank extension. So, load, pump, shoot, pump , shoot, reload pump shoot pump... you get the idea.
Here is the gun closed up, you do need to dremel or hacksaw to make way for it, but not a whole lot.
No ranges and until I get some better barrel material. I'm guessing with DMB, the 3k gets about 100 feet. But thats just pacing
I do NOT apologize for the crappy phone pictures in any way, it's not my fault, getting a 8-10 MP Camera in a couple of days,
Oh and first post is a writeup, WOOT!
DO NOT PLUG THE PUMP UNLESS YOU HAVE SOME SORT OF COVERING OVER THE AIR TANK!
Disclaimer: Do this mod at own risk, and don't sue me.
Oh and as for thank yous, thank my friend who loaned me two bbbbs (one of which is completely destroyed by trying to integ a spring gun into a air gun and have it be semi auto.). Thanks to the admin that validated me. Thanks to FA24, he's inspired me to do different things with my Nerf guns and I was about to mail himon youboob yesterday to post my mod because my account was still not validated, but decided I didn't want to make him do something that might harm his reputation. Also thanks nerfer9 for having different beliefs but not starting an argument.
