If two powerful is a problem then just go with one powerful. I guess this style of hopper will work even beyond three powerful..

Supah sexy...again... I love the cleanliness, the camo duct tape, and the overall super sex of the blaster. Will be banned from pistol rounds due to oversexiness.

120' from a big salvo? SSPB pumps are the shit- please someone use one on a titan or big blast.

Something that big would take at least 100 pumps to fill. My Secret Strike Pocket Hornets (Tiny Tim Mk.2's) take 22-24 pumps to fill, and those are relatively tiny hornet tanks. I can't see this popping the OPRV in any fewer than 50 pumps. That said, I love that you took this to the next level, props.

Hah! I love the name, it's even better than "Big Bertha". It's not just Tiny Tim's older cousin, it's his scary body building crazy cousin that he carefully avoids.

Awesome names aside, it would seem to me that this would function much better with a longer barrel. Tiny Tim operates on less than 1/3 of the volume of a BS tank, so I would assume that this would need at least a 6" barrel. Is there a particular reason you are using the barrel shown in the pictures? If you are already getting 120' ranges I would believe that this could potentially hit 130-140', enough to be banned at most wars ;) .

Great job taking a mildly ridiculous blaster and pushing it many many levels further.

Also, have you tried shotgun loading it? Assuming the BS tank is also being pressurized to around 80PSI I could easily imagine this being able to propel 4 or 5 darts out of a single barrel, and still outrange any other blaster of its size.

EDIT: And to think people were raving over the Jolt's power, way to steal Hasbro's thunder :P .

What you should've done was drilled a hole in the side of the SSPB tank instead of removing it entirely.

Then depressing the trigger would pilot the QEV of the SSPB which would pilot the QEV in the BS tank. Slightly faster dump out of the SSPB firing valve than the thumb button so if you were to do a Tantum style mod to the BS tank or if the piston in your BS tank becomes morn worn then you have some insurance policy.

So how many pumps does this actually take to fill?

Excellent work, by the way. I can see shotgun loading this and affixing it to a forearm-brace for use in a last-resort situation Assassin's Creed style.

Very nice. I love the entire Tiny Tim idea myself. What kind of darts are you using in this one?

Boot, this is for my sister in college. She wanted something impressive. They also use stock darts there.

Zorn, yea, but I wanted an easy mod. I did this without a drill or dremel.

Aeromech, about past 50. I don't even take it up to full pressure. 40 is enough for these ranges.

Swiftone, darts that are CPVC airgun fit.

Something worth asking: is the pump plugged to get these crazy ranges?
