1 Air Tech 2000
1 Jasman 2-Player Laser Pursuit Covenant Halo # Plasma Pistol Set (You've gotta get the 2 player one, the single pistol has much more internal components such as motors, and springs, and other stuff I don't know 'cause I've never opened one up)
1' Airline tubing ( 1/4")
1 Piece of 19/32 brass
1 Piece of 9/16 brass
Heavy Duty Fishing Line, or similar strong thin wire
Alright, so here you have your Plasma Pistol,
Crack 'er open and remove the internal components (you can either toss 'um, or save them for another project like I did, I couldn't find a way to fit them inside with my 2K). This is what you should get;
Now, take your 2k, take out the pump, and blast chamber. Get rid of that short yellow tubing (I used an X-acto knife and made a small slit in the tubing so I could grab it with my pliers to get it off), and all the rest of the gun, we only want the pump and chamber. Chop off the goo gauge, right where it connects to the orange/red disk shaped thingy. Just look at the picture.
Also, to get it to fit, just right, you'll need to trim the shell down a bit.
Now, we're going to need a place to put the pump. I figured the best spot would be in the bottom battery compartment. I had to cut about 2.3"-3" off of the pump housing to get it to fit inside the shell correctly, without cutting into any of the screw posts. You're also going to want to make a small + shaped open ing in the back of the battery compartment to allow the pump handle to be used. You don't want to make a big hole in the back, or else while you're feverishly pumping in the heat of battle you're going to pull too hard and yank the pump apart, and then have to fiddle with as you're being pelted with foam. Once again the picture should explain if I haven't.
Now on to the blast chamber and barrel area. Take this nifty green piece;
and cut it so that your 19/32 brass can fit through it, like so....
Ok... just to make it a little easier, in this picture I circled all the areas you'll need to trim in red.
Now, take your 19/32 brass and flair out one end a bit, so that it'll fit over the larger nub at the tip of your 2K tank. Once you know it'll fit all the way down, goop it up a bit (not too much) and jam it on. Attach the tank and the pump using you 1/4" airline tubing.
Next tie your fishing line ( I like to use the heavy stuff, 50lbs test) to the trigger pin on that 2K tank. Now take the little red re-load button and drill a very small hole in it like I did.
Now thread your line through.
Now put all that stuff in side the shell, make sure you've trimmed everything right and you've centered everything. A dab of hot glue here and there to make sure nothing going to move around too much, and this is what you should get.
That should be it for the insides, screw it back up, and grab your piece of 9/16, throw a few tightening rings on one end and there you have it, a dart firing Plasma Pistol.
