This mod is to make available an alternative massive air tank to the Titan.

The problem is that stock it has a c-blocking safety marble in it that only allows you to fire vertically, making integration impossible.

Materials/tools for Blaster Mod
• Marine Epoxy
• 3/8” spade bit
• Drill
• Dremel and your choice of cutting bit

Materials for Tube mod
• 1/8” nylon tube coupler
• Crazy glue
• goop

First, read this thread
http://nerfhaven.com...5218&hl=ironman

Now get one of these
http://www.amazon.co...3926396&sr=1-10

I got one for $17 and two for $10, so they very.

First what NOT to do.

Removing the bottom screws does nothing.

Cutting the whole bottom off does nothing.

Here you can see the hole that the c-blocking assclown marble sits on to act as a safety so this beast can only fire vertically.
Posted Image

More internals.
Posted Image

Now on to the actual mod.

First, remove the plunger and the tank from there respective stands by removing screws (you don’t need a pic) and dremmeling on these two places.
Posted Image

Next drill directly above the hose on the take with a 3/8” spade bit. There is the rat bastard c-blocking marble: MOCKING US!!!
Posted Image

The hole is the perfect size for the you-know-what to come right out.
Posted Image

Cover this hole with hot-glue (only time I will ever advocate hot-glue) or epoxy. DO NOT use goop because it will sink into the hole and block the entire passage.
Posted Image

Apply marine epoxy to your hole…yeah. Here you can see the “easy” way and the “hard” way.
Posted Image

While you wait a day for the epoxy to dry, you can cut down the base of the plunger tube to as little as this.
Posted Image

Another for kicks.
Posted Image

Plugging the pump: all you do is tighten this screw.
Posted Image

The tube is absurdly long, but it is easy to shorten. Just cut out the excess to your desired length, put crazy glue on a 1/8” nylon tube coupler, put the two ends together, and coat in goop for good measure.
Posted Image

Screw this back onto this…
Posted Image

BAM! You now have the most powerful air tank on the market ready to be thrown into any gun you want.

Buckets of props to imaseoulman and SomeBob for the inspiration. I’m excited to see what the NIC can do with this, I know I have a few things in the works.

Very nice. I'm going to have to try some of these things on the very similar blaster I got. I actually made a post about it here http://nerfhaven.com...Another new toy. I also know of a pipe fitting that fits on the stock barrel perfectly, and allows it to use 1/2" PVC barrels like a regular coupler. I beleive it is called a quick fix fitting or something like that. I'll get pictures later.

Very nice work, I wonder if you could make it more usable by slapping on a handle/trigger mechanism. As it is, it's not exactly war ready...

True, but I was more hoping to just make it an option for people with more time than I do right now.

I will be posting an actual integration soon but based on how far it shoots the 2 foot stock Shellhead singling this would be just…excessive. And you might kill small birds.

Nice mod you should go out to get pvc and make a shell and there you have it a homemade SOB.
