That's sweet... If it was mine, I'd put a light spring in the pump to pull the cocking/pump handle back in to place every time. I don't know why, I just think that'd be a convenient addition.


Interesting thing to consider, it would be nice to make the pump motion easier.

What I was thinking is instead of "pumping" it, you'd be theoretically cocking it 3 times. Personally, I think it would make it a lot faster.


Even a powerful spring won't be able to pump it fast enough at higher pressures. It will just push on the pump and air will slowly leak around the o-ring. Trust me, it won't work.

One problem I've always had, aesthetically speaking, with people integrating a 2K/3K/etc into their NF's is that the pump is always put it some weird looking spot (such as sticking out of the handle). While I'm sure it works for them on a practical level, it has always bothered me on a purely cosmetic level.

This, on the other hand, takes a power blaster (the 3K) and sticks it into a compact, comfortable and easy-to-aim shell, while retaining an aesthetically pleasing configuration that also remains practical and effective.

Excellent work!

This is sweet. Very clean, looks very functional. Im definatly doing this when my 3k gets here. But why didnt you conect the tank pin/trigger to the stock NF trigger? Mabye I should do that, unless you've tried that... and it dosn't work...

It does, work, but it requires allot of extra work. I am ironing out all the kinks and soon I will post the better trigger mech.

Wow. This gun is truly a thing of beauty. Remind me not to enter the mod competition, I don't think I can beat this.

By the way, I think I want to make one.

You said 3k intigration. That looks like a 2k tank. My 3k tanks are black and no where NEAR that clean. I have to cut parts off for a tank.

Well, it is infact an at3k tank. I guess I just did a realy good job removing all the extra crap.

If you don't believe me I can always rip it out and take a close up...it would be inconvenient however

Wow Point, that is, well, fricking amazing. "Clean," functional, efficient, I would think VERY useful, and pretty simple apparently to do...and best of all: all five at once! Great job man.

Wow, this mod is just mind blowing. I really love everything about it. Some people have talked about doing this with an AT2K and I am really considering doing that as long as I can remove that stupid pressure meter thing and re-seal the tube with the very limited resources that i have. It's amazing PointBlank, you have truly outdone yourself with this.

Why didn't you just run the tubing from the tank below the trigger and place the pump in the handle? This way you can have the nf and the at3k.

I think if he did that, his mod wouldn't be as unique. Someone already did something like that, but with an AT2K, and it works just fine, but it wouldn't make his mod write-up thread worthy. Besides this looks much cleaner AND gets better range than the the guy who did what I believe your talking about with an AT2K.

I would be willing to do a more full and detailed write up upon request.

I second that notion. I curious to see exactly how you cut out the "bare bones" of the AT3K to make one simple tank-pump system

As Alkorion said, It has already been done. Besides, the whole point of this mod was to make it look as much as the NF as possible, or at least look like a stock gun.

We do not need that kind of spam. You could have gave props to him a better way.

Anyways, I really like your clean mod and it would bring competition on other mods in the modification contest.

Definitely a nice mod though, very simple to replicate.
