Hey guys. I was trying to build a FrankenFinder the other day, but the plunger head seemed to be shattered, and I didn't have time to buy a new one. I ended up putting the turret from the 2K onto a BBBB. If you would like to replicate this modification, instructions follow below. This mod isn't perfect, as it has got some dead space, but it's fairly effective.

Here's the list of materials.

- 4x lengths of PETG, I used 8" pieces
- 1x Big Blast
- 1x AT2K Turret
- Hot glue and Glue gun
- Dremel/Grinder/Sandpaper
- Hacksaw

First, you'll need to cut down the Big Blast shell so the 2K turret will fit comfortably. Unfortunately, I didn't take a picture of this step.

Next, you'll need to cut and sand down the big blast barrel. Sand the top so the spring of the turret fits snugly against the side of the stock barrel.

Then, You'll want to dremel a groove into the top of the big blast shell, take a piece of the orange ring (the one from the big blast that you have to cut off to open the gun) and glue it into the groove.

After that, you'll want to glue the turret into the BBBB stock barrel, the back of the turret should be snug against the piece of orange ring, glue the ring to the turret.

To finish, reassemble your BBBB.

I haven't tested the ranges (ranges are for squares, anyway), but it shoots across my basement at high velocity and has alot of air output. Well, thanks for checking this out. Tell me if you need a video of this, I'm planning on making a quick firing demonstration, later. Also, the barrels are a bit crooked in the picture, but actually they're pretty straight.

Questions? Comments? Constructive criticism?

Thanks
Finn

This might just be the pictures, but it looks like the barrels are leaning towards the ground.

Interesting, not the cleanest--but I am sure it gets the job done. Conversely you could have had both the BBBB as a primary and the 2K for backup---like this------

Scott: I believe that I said that already.
Rogue: If I had an AT2K, I probably would've done that, your contributions to the modifications of Foam Blasters are great.

My apologies I missed that last sentence. I thought it was the pictures.

Wait till you see the new "RogueScope" Rev.2, and thanks for the kind words. If you decide to construct a "RogueScope" and have questions, I will be glad to answer via PM.----Rogue.

Probably best to do it with a 3k or Mav turret next. I would have liked to see it in a different shell. That would have been AMAZING.

Love your sig.

Haha, yeah, I've got a screwed up 3k turret, so I'm planning that, but I've also got a 12 round 4K turret. Also, you must be pysicic, because I was going to put this into a Secret Strike shell (I think that's what it's called, the little red one).

you should cut the stock barrel down and then glue the turret on like this. It is a cool mod though

Jerm: That looks good, I'll try it on my next one.
ANF: That's probably a better idea since it's already got the spinny thing (not sure what it's called).

Cutting the barrel down will also reduce dead space and make the ranges a bit higher as well. I like the mod though and it looks like it's a nice gun to use.
