I want to put a tube from a ait tank to the valve to make it more like a pump-action gun. I thought that is you pump it once, it would turn the rotating mechanism and then the air-tank kicks in and all I have to do is pull the trigger and the air in the tank will push the dart out.
Any thoughts or suggestions?

So you're saying you want the rotation to be managed by the existing pump but the motive force supplied by an external tank?

Piece of cake with a regulator. Just make a medium sized (say 3" diameter, 12" long PVC for instance) air tank, connect to regulator, go with about 120psi in the tank, 70psi on the outlet, and run it to the stock air tank.

Actually sounds like a cool project, let us know how it goes.

::YOINK::

I got one for ya, an "unnamed" Nerfer recently proposed to me the idea of somehow integrating a 1500 barrel rotation assembly into a Crossbow casing/plunger system. I told them they were an asshole and that I had no idea how to affix the rotation part strongly enough so that the violent, case shaking, kickback of the crossbow didn't rend it assunder, like Thor does.

I did that...with PETG, unfortunetly, so that no doubt hindered it by far, but it did work, and I was able to secure the rotation system right into the coupler with some retro-fitting. It was sturdy...the only drawback was the less-than acceptable range.

I've been able to do almost everything I've thought of, and even if it didn't have decent results, it was succesful. It just takes a trip to Ace and a few minutes on the crapper.

Pretty simple: In this case, something to regulate the amount of air going to/out of your valve.

does this mod work? has anyone tryed this?
Carefully take gun apart then slowly pull off the orange 6 barrel chamber. Drill out the inner orange tube with two holes in the top (air flow control), and then blow out the shavings from the drill. You can pull out the springs in the chamber, but you don't have to. Now you can start putting the gun back together.

At some point, people will get tired of answering questions that you have obviously put no thought into and will tell you to STFU. This is one of those times.

Also, to add on to what cxwq was saying is that you kind of have an AOL type of spelling.

On NHQ, someone said it couldn't work because The problem with this is that firing from two tanks, the secondary(homemade) tank would loose a lot of pressure and the 3k tank would have little pressure since you were only using 1 pump. If you reduced that tank size, You could succeed well. This would require you to pump the homemade tank unless you hooked both tanks to the same pump. I believe your range would increase greatly. Also, I think you would only have to pump the homemade tank maybe every 3-6 shots. Is that true?
