VACC commissioned me to figure out how to make a modular 3K integration that could be attached to the integration rails on the +Bow. With the Airtech 3000 he provided I took a ton of measurements and worked out how best to reduce the over-all size of the internals in order to minimize it, without removing the auto-advancing turret mechanism.
3k.jpg
The piece on the pump that advances the turret had to be relocated. The length of its stroke was different from that of the pump, so tracks had to be cut in the side of the shell and in the pump slide.
3k_002.jpg
The pump is allowed to slide forward and back. At either end of its stroke, the pump pushes the advancing piece to each end of its track. The pump slide is further stabilized by the black lip pieces added to the edges of the slide arms.
3k_007.jpg
3k_008.jpg
The unit can be attached to a +Bow using threaded rods, or quick-release pins.
3k_003.jpg
The trigger rod of the 3K will be attached to the lower half of this double trigger that replaces the normal +Bow trigger.
3k_005.jpg
The finished unit with 4-inch barrels and a bungee'd ramrod. Total length is 10 inches.
3k_006.jpg
This took three months of off-and-on tinkering to complete.

And before anyone asks, no I do not want to make another one of these. And no I probably won't make any templates or plans available because making one of these involves some very tight tolerances between many moving parts.
The rest of you simply get to look forward to being shot with it.

Wow, Slug! Just WOW! You've really outdone yourself. The tandem trigger is just...phenomenal. And the whole package is just so compact. How much front weight does it add to the blaster? I guess with your hand resting on the pump grip it shouldn't feel unbalanced at all.

NICE WORK! I hope I get a chance to see this at DCNO (crossing fingers in hopes that I can make it this year).

Sweet Jesus. that is rediculus. I am in complete and utter awe of that monstrosity. As if VACC need anything else to pwn n00bs with. Does the attatchment system feel secure? It seems like it could be damaged if handled roughly. Again, Mad Fucking Props.

Whatever VACC paid for this commision, it had to be worth it. Its looks badass just sitting there not doing anything. Imagine what its going to look like firing at your ass!

I hope you have some agreement with VACC that he's not allowed to shoot you with it since you made it for him.

Yeah. Three threaded rods is plenty for holding this in place.

No.
At the last DCNO he used the +Bow I made to shoot me in the face.

Jiminy-jillikers! That's freakin' awesome! Well done.

Do you mind it we get a pict of it mounted on the +-bow?

Feels the same as a stock 3K, only the grip is much wider.

What material are those barrels?

1/2" ID 5/8" OD Polyester

Slug, sometimes I think that there may be such a thing as being too badass. Not very often, mind you, but still. Damn.

Congratulations to both of you on an excellent modification. Just out of curiosity are there any aesthetic plans for the blaster in the future like paint or decals? Personally I like the current lean and mean look.

You never cease to amaze me, 'Slug. Very impressive. I am also quite happy that I can't attend east coast wars with that.

I don't have any plans to paint it since I wasn't paid to do that. It's being mailed to VACC this weekend.

Please Sir, may we have a video?

What is there to show that requires video? It's functions the same as a normal 3K.

In that case, if you haven't already boxed it, could we have a picture from straight above? Pwease?

Also, I would really appreciate it if you posted a template for just the turret spacer plate.

But, I appreciate how busy you probably are, and just the picture would be great.

And here's a barrel spacer template. Place on a page and resize to 2.375" in width.

Drill the center 1/4" then super glue onto the stock barrel stabilizing piece. You'll obviously have to drill the barrel holes to match the OD of your barrel material.

Every time I look at that... thing, I find it hard to look away.

The auto-rotation still works, it keeps many of the stock parts, it's small, it's light and it's integratiable. Who or what are you!?

iamsoulman, I think he has entered a place, a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call "The Twilight Zone". Or he is not feeling himself tonight.

On topic: I really, really, really like that. Maybe you should make one for something like a lnl or a nf. Or make an attachment for a camera or something to see war footage. I don't know, I am just brainstorming.
