Anyway, I was at my cousin's house over the summer, and I noticed he had a SM5K looking super soaker. I asked him if I could have it. He said yes, I brought it home.
This is it: EDIT: Site said they would sue if I used pic without permission. Just google it.
It was leaking out the pump. I never looked at it again until yesterday. I noticed the airtank, which was hooked up to the water tank and air pump via some tubing that looked like small, thick petg. I cut the PETG where it went into the tank. The tank itself looks like a SM750, so I said, perfect, into the xbow she goes.
I cannot integrate a 2k, as the front of my xbow is cut off due to the previous owner trying to hook it up to a DTB turret. 2k is too big, this is smaller.
Here it is.

I etaped some vinyl tubing and gooped it into the hole like I would with a 2k. I coupler'd it, and shot it, getting about 75ft flat. This is with 3 pumps using a 2k pump and PETG.
Very good idea to convert this to nerf if you have one lying around. With the little amount of pumps and the good ranges in such a compact size, they are great.

Actually, I doubt that's an XP-150, I've got one, it's bitchin' as far as supersoakers go, but that's definitely not the pressure chamber from one, If you've got the shell laying around we could probably take a stab at the name of it.

This is the gun I got it out of. The tank is right at the tip of the front of the gun.

Mine was a different color scheme, but you get the picture.

Thats no tank, it's just the valve unit from the gun, it just happens to have enough volume to make an awesome tank.

I wasn't too sure what it was, it just seemed like it would work. I will be the first to admit I don't know ANYTHING about supersoakers.
Yeah, I like the thing a lot. I can take it to 5 pumps, but I didn't let the goop dry long enough (I left it overnight) and the tubing came off. I did get 90ft with that shot though. This is one pimpin little tank. A lot of kick-assery in one small package.

Very nice! After seeing a picture of the gun, I thought "hmmm... don't I have a busted old Super Soaker that looks vaguely like that?". I then went, got it from the garage, and opened it up. When I opened it I kept hearing a lot of hissing and gurgling and I got water all over the floor, but eventually I ripped the shell open. I was very happy to see a regular nerf style valve pin, so I ferousiously cut open the remaining shell and tada! I had retrieved the airtank! My particular gun was an XP 110, here are some pictures of the tank compared to other tanks.

From top to bottom: At2k, XP110, SS2, and Hornet.

Since you said it was like that of an SM750, I figured I should take my SM750 apart and take a look. It's just a bit smaller as you can see.

Overall, I'm pretty happy. It'll be really easy to a tank extension on this valve, and it will also be easy to integrate. I'm pissed I didn't buy two of these XP110s when I saw them at goodwill in November. It was because I thought they were crappy since my own one was, I was wrong.

Two days ago, I was thinking about posting these internals pics of a watergun I found online. Now is the perfect chance.

It looks a lot like an AT2K Tank.

Here is the link to the image if you would like to see it fullsize.
