Hello Nerfhaven.

I recently started a new project. I'm combining the airteck 2k tank with a maverick. I had a maverick with a broken outer plunger and a set of 2k internals. The idea was to get the range of the 2k( I know it will be less)
with the cool look of the maverick.

I ran into a slight road block. I had to cut off the goo gauge to fit the tank in. Here's my question- How should I connect the pump hose to the tank? I tried hot glue but it didn't seal.

Thanks for the help. I think this may have been done before but the pictures in the post didn't work anymore.

This is what I have finished so far

Drill a little bit in that hole in the back of the tank to the same size as the hose (cut that plastic off of the hose), then glue. Look at the Handy Pistol thread if you don't know what I'm talking about.

If at first you don't succeed, add more epoxy.

If the piece that sits at the front and makes the seal with the back of the turret is still intact, cut it off like you would for a nite-mav. Then glue brass to it and the tip of the valve stem.

I had the idea to use the base of the front of the plunger in my mind. Thanks Tantum

It's to late now, but you can wiggle out the goo gauge so that it leaves a hole just big enough for a piece of tubing.

I forgot to mention it, but I had another idea when making this. Have it hooked up to a larger airtank with a valve that would allow a certain amount of pressure into the 2k tank. I just don't know of ny valves that can do that.

A regulator valve, a ball valve (if you want to conserve air, you will have to open and close before each shot, though, and an external air tank.

If you don't run the external air tank above 60 to 70 PSI you won't need the regulator. Take a look at imseoulman's "unfair gun" and CaptainSlug's "DIY external air tank".

Edit: For the tubing problem, click the "My Mod Write-Ups" button in my sig. Than take a look at my AT2K mod. It basically shows how to do what wes is talking about.

The problem with using a ball valve of nothing at all is that each successive shot with have less power.

If you use a large external air tank the power will go down very slowly, as much more air is required to change the PSI in the tank. I could see you getting easily 30 shots out of a decently sized air tank with only a max deviation in range of 5 to 10 feet or so.

Something the size as one of Slug's backpack air tanks (not referring to his HPA tanks here) could probably get you a bit short of one hundred or so.

Edit: Don't shoot squirrels.

Do you think a titan tank would be suitable for this? I have one to use.

With a Titan tank, for the amount of shots you'd get, it really would not be worth the work. You would not get near what you're looking for.

No, a titan tank would not be suitable as an external air tank for what you're looking for. It would also be a waste of a quick air release system.

Let me just say, hot glue will not hold very well. Try epoxy,epoxy putty, or jbweld, or goop.

A magstrike bladder provides a constant amount of pressure, and is fairly easy to pump.
