As I was looking around I simply found a Air Tech 2k at Boscovs for only $3 and I grabbed it. When i got home I just did simple mods air leaks and took out the air restrictors from all 4 barrels, then I wanted more so i tried doing a mod myself without any guides ( which was pretty stuiped of me). I attemped to take out the orange stuff in the gauge and I did and when I screwed it back in and fired it i was pleased but then i heard the air coming out. So I opened it a 4th time and then I figured that every time I opened the gun I would make the holes bigger causeing a leak and thats exactly what happend.

I've tried plugging it up with plumbers putty and alot of hot glue but that still didnt work either so I just wasted like 15 dollars of glue and putty.

Well, you can just bypass the whole goo gauge by drilling a larger hole in the tank, and shoving the tubing in and gluing it.

Yup, that's pretty much how it works.

Did you even see the post directly above yours? The gauge would be eliminated, as the hose would feed into the tank directly, instead of feeding air through the goo gauge.

Or before you go removing the goo gauge you should try this! Not only do you get better ranges, but it fixes your goo gauge problem.

Jesus those expanded tanks are hella fugly. Drill a bigger hole and goop on and seal another hose. It'll work like a charm and totally take out the unnecessary gauge.

What do you mean by the trigger spot? Did you pull out the rod?

I didn't even have to drill a larger hole.

While fixing my magstrike valve I drilled a hole 0.33" in diameter, then took the bottom shell of a BIC black pen(one of the ones with the white outer shell). Then added plenty of hot glue. It now holds the 40 PSI required.

Thats the way I do it. Use a rag with some light fast rubbing.

Sometimes I hate my uncontrollable imagination....
