This modification is thorough and long, so if you want to skip to the good stuff, just scroll to the bottom. Otherwise, lets get started!
First we start with our basic materials. Youíre going to also need an extra Nite Finder plunger rod or make your own from cratch. And youíre going to need some 1Ē PETG Tubing from Pet Smart. The following will be the installation of the AirTech 3000 to the likings of PointBlank and pump location to the liking of me and my previous Blood Finder mod.
Youíre going to need to rip out all the internals from the AT3K like so:
Then you need to clean all the plastic sticking out from the air tank off. It should look like this:
Then weíre going to bypass the pressure gauge and remove the second section of the tank pin so you have this:
Now youíre going to set that assembly aside for later. Before we can do anything else to it, we need to move on to the Nite Finder and prepare it for the tank installation.
So grab your Nite Finder and open it up.
Gut the gun, remove everything from the inside. Then take a large drill bit and drill down the screw pegs on the inside where the light was.
Do this to the other side as well.
Then drill a hole large enough for the tank valve out the side.
Now take a file or a Dremel tool and grind the front of the gun where the light was large enough for the tank to fit through because it will need to stick out the front a millimeter or so.
Now test fit your tank.
The Tube into the tank should stick out the side like this:
Now weíre going to take our AirTech 2000 turret and go Dremel crazy on it. Weíre going to do the Reverse Turret mod like Blue did, Iím not sure if he came up with it or if it was Cheesypiza001, Blue said it was originally Black Fox. Take your Dremel and grind everything off the top, the barrels, ARís, and the steel pin in the middle. Make sure you go slow on the steel pin and allow time for it to cool down. If not it could get hot enough to start melting the plastic on the turret and thatís never good.
Then grind everything off of the bottom of turret except for the spring of course. Then drill barrel holes all the way through.
Now weíre going to attach it onto our tank with epoxy putty. I put it on offset so it wouldnít get in the way of the plunger or the ammo holders, where I plan to put the Pocket Blaster.
Before you do that, if you wanted to do rear loading, this would be the time. Now we can attach the barrels. Do whatever youíd like for this, but I chose to only do 3 inch CPVC barrels. I wanted a fast reload time and didnít want to open up the turret to do rear loading, so I went with short barrels and it works fine.
