One day I was just pumping it up them bam! The rubber bladder blew up. So I caved out the insides of it and shoved in a 2in pvc pipe in to it. Panted it ultra flat black. :wacko:

It will fit...barely

Getting a rubber grommet that size was a pain to find.

It kept wanting to push out, so some welding wire fixed it.

Done.

So you repalced the bladder with a 2 inch PVC pipe?
Impressive...

Im expecting it gets better ranges, correct? Or at least more clips off before re-pumping...

Yep I sure did. I like to recycle :wacko: Well range is about the same as before, I can get about a clip and a half off with out re-pumping. The bladder squeezed the air out, where as the pipe doesn't.

That's great and all, but you see, my problem with the MS isn't that you only get one clip off with 20 pumps as much as it that you get 10 darts with 20 pumps. I got min modded so I can pump it like 50 times and get 2 and a half clips out, but I don't have time to sit there and pump it 50 times. What we need to be working on is a pump that can fill the bladder in 10 pumps or less. Otherwise to me, it can't beat the rf20. Once we get that taken care of, we can add like 4 bladders to it and get off 8 mags before repumping.

im actually trying to resize an airtank so it fires 2 or 3 rounds. trying to lower pumping and dart use. 3 shot burst if you want it in "uber military terms"

Actually it fire 1 through 10 just as fast as normal.It takes about 35 to 40 pumps. Yeah I wish it could only take 10 pumps, if I were to redo it again I would have put in a heavy type balloon In side the PCV or something to that effect.

That's easy. Just take several bike pumps and connect them together.

It stinks that it takes like 40 pumps, but whatever.

His was blown so at least he managed to find a way to fix it, (besides buying a new bladder).

Also when your in a war you generally have a whole team to back you up when youre pumping your gun, in this
case 35-40 times.

Very creative fix of a bladder, and the PVC is probably A LOT more solid too.

Good call, the only problem I can see would be a consistent and accurate spread. The benefit of the inner tube (I had thought, and at least with CPS soakers) was a steady flow even at the last few shots as the elastic continues to put pressure on kinetically.

Definitely try this with a minimized hard tank first, but don't be surprised if you have to rig up a tiny elastic bladder on this sort of blaster. Worthy project.

Remember SPV? Filling 2 Magstrikes and a Titan with 5 pumps? I think that making 2 GIANT air tanks out if 1" thinwall PVC and strapping them onto your back would be interesting, pump it up 2000 times the day before the war (pump it up 100 times, wait an hour, pump, wait, pump, wait...) with a ground mounted bike pump, detach the pump, and BAM! 1000 clips!

Yeah I defiantly don't have to worry about the tank blowing up. It also made the gun weight a lot more. Better then buying a new one I think. :)

How much heavier is it now? Looks pretty sweet, though I echo most people's sentiments that I expected it to slow down firing due to the lack of constant pressure. But hey, if it works, it works.

I like the flat black. It looks good on this because magstrikes don't really look like something that you could mistake for a real gun. It also goes well with the orange trigger and other stuff. The stark industries logo is perfect and doesn't look at all out of place. This is by far my favorite paintjob ever. No exageration. Also that PVC tank is a great idea. Good job,

PS Its 3 round burst if you want to be super technical.
