I was thinking, could this work with a normal pin tank instead of a backpressure? I was afraid of all of the air going into the At3k tank at once, and breaking it. Would a hard tank work instead of MS bladders?

yeah, a hard tank would work as long as you don't fill it with a ton of pressure. It would work with a pin powered blaster too... It would just be harder since you would have to rig the trigger up to it.

Yeah, rigging the trigger to a pin tank is reeaaalllly annoying. Also, has anyone ever made a write up for a hard tank?

Uhhhh, you know PVC and the fittings that go with it? I have genuine faith that you can figure it out without having your hand held along the way.

It would most likely replace both, meaning full semi-auto.

Most likely? Anyone have something more definite to say about this? I mean, if it does replace both, I'll buy one. I'm not even considering it until I get something more than a maybe though.



Yep it works. I will have to post of a video of it tomorrow.

If it does in fact work, I might use that instead of the other parts that i was planning for V2. Is it pretty tiny in size? Does it let out the air fast enough to fire a larger tank, or is it meant for a smaller tank? If this works, I won't use the factory produced blast button and push button. I'll just use this.

First of all, harsh.

I should have worded that differently, I am only unsure of what nipples to put on the outside of the tank, to attach to the 1/4" vinyl tubing. I would like suggestions because I don't want to fuck up the tank.

If you look at my Airtech 2000 tank expansion, it should give you some ideas. I didn't use a nipple or anything. I just super glued some tubing into a reasonably tight hole. From there, I solvent welded it in place.

Okay, sounds good. I also found Captain Slug's write up on a homemade hard tank. It looks sweet, and operates well, but is expensive. Here's the link for anyone else. DIY TANK

Well, I was going to order this... I saw that it shipped from cincinnati ohio, which I live 20 minutes (MAYBE) from. I then proceeded to make an order. They want 8.77 for shipping, and then they have a 10 dollar handling fee on top of that. That is just total BS. 10 dollars to put something in a padded envelope? 8.77 to ship something that is the size of 5 nickels stacked on top of each other down the street? RIDICULOUS.

Ordering from the Clippard site isn't the best choice. Oftentimes you can find the products on ebay or other sites with much more reasonable S+H. I got a regulator from them a while back, and it was actually from an industrial surplus site. So just look around and search for the item number, and it should show up eventually.

I am having no luck with this. Only the clippards site, and this thread come up under google. I tried searching under shopping, and there was nothing at all. Looks like I need to find another part that is a little cheaper.

I ordered a bunch of stuff from them at once so it wasn't so bad. If you like I can sell you one. Send me a PM and we can work out the details. But it shouldn't be more then 10 dollars shipped.

Nice job on V2. Questions:

1. Whats the valve used on the trigger?
2. Where can I get one?

Try clicking the "Distributors" link in the sidebar of the Clippard site, then enter your zip code. They may have a store that sells their product locally, or close to locally. I found one near me I'll be checking out to pick up my own sweet semi-auto awesomeness.

I tried that, but it's pretty far away... I figure I might as well just make a big order eventually, that way shipping is cheaper.

I live rather far away from the Clippard distributor nearest to me. I called them on the phone and they shipped my order to me. There was no problem, and I greatly appreciated the reduced cost.

So if you call them instead of ordering online it's cheaper? That's pretty weird

I think you're confused. The problem is that Clippard has absurd shipping and handling charges. I didn't order from Clippard. I ordered from a distributor. The distributor did not have an online store. All orders not processed physically in the store were done over the phone. I got the same reduced price distributors have and I didn't have to pay Clippard's absurd charges.

Yep, it's a fun blaster to use.

I think I'll be needing 2 more... maybe more. It all depends on how much I want to spend on my projects.
