Recently, I was given a 4 foot long Super Soaker, made by Larami, before nerf took over and corrupted the water gun industry. It was fun, but took like 50 pumps and was ridiculously heavy. So I scrapped it for the air tanks and gun. Here is the shell(most of it) after I gutted it.

The gun is called the 'Super Soaker Monster XL', and it uses two enormous 16" long air tanks, and they are each the approxamate circumference of 1 1/2" PVC. However, this gun is designed for water, so maybe that is why they are so massive.
Here is a horrible picture of the tank.

and here is the thingy in front of the two tanks with the valve (for lack of a better word. I plugged one of the holes.

this is the pump shaft.

you might also notice the first gen nf in back.

Anyways, thats all the pics I have. The point is, I know nothing about airguns, or how they work, so I ask you out there who are more knowledgeable than I, what you think of this blaster, what I might be able to do with it, etc.

In addition, when i used my air compressor to pump air into it, it literally shot a hole through plywood using slugs, and I am not using the right barrel size or length. Would someone please explain to me how I could use this thing, or maybe I could ship it to you and you could figure it out, i am clueless with air seals.

Thanks

My advice would be one of three things: A - get an easier to use air blaster. Supersoakers are crazy powerful, just take wayyyyyyyy too many pumps. B - attach a much larger pump. It would take a LOT less pumps if you did that. Or C - but a mini air compressor and power it with a big 12 volt battery.

Make sure you save the stock pump for future projects, it looks like it would work well as a replacement pump.

Yeah, I agree with this, it looks great for 3k or something.

I also will give one word of advice, super soakers are banned almost everywhere, and even if you did modify it, it would be super impractical. If you really want to modify it, just single it and keep it for pest control. Or elephant hunting(I know it's illegal).

I am saddened now. This is a shame. And that thing looks badass! It makes me want to track down my old supersoaker that I had when I was younger.

If you haven't modified this thing in any way, reassemble it, and use it for it's meant. Vintage Larami super soakers are awe inspiring, there wasn't ever (and will never be) a super soaker line more powerful than these.

The one I had when I was younger hurt just from the water shooting out at such high pressure! I'm scared to think about what it would do with a dart.

This is the one I had.

Since pretty much all the supersoakers have HUGE air volume, I would expect they could be war legal if they were used for titan rockets or even higher capacity shotgun blasts. I'd love to see a 20 shot blast (who knows maybe it could handle more). It would be scary and kick ass for defend the core. Well hell I might just have to look into that.

Fill tank with plastic marbles to reduce the number of pumps to fill the tanks and you get to keep the original flavor of it.

No, Drac, I honestly thought about selling it, but A, the shipping would have been like 40 bucks, and B, the one I had was 'well loved' and the bipod on mine was broken. I probably wouldn't have broke even.

I've got a couple of those CPS1000s, if you are really interested in picking one up.

I tried making a sort of 'Hamp-esque' pump with giant air volume, but it could not seal well enough to force air through the one-way valve. Maybe a titan pump would work?

Hamp pumps only work with hamps. They have a high air volume but very little seal. They don't build enough pressure to work with anything else. A titan pump would work, but you'd have to plug it and it would still take a bejesus load of pumps. I suggest buying a bike pump (I mean a full size one, if you want a small one just stick with the titan pump don't buy one). Another alternative is building a pump. I posted about doing so in my W.W.A.C. thread. For this application I would change it slightly. Just put an end cap over the 1 1/4 in pvc tube and drill a hole in it, then goop/solvent weld a brass tubing connector so you can connect vinyl tubing to it. With a large pump you would have to mount it under the existing pump slide (It won't fit in the shell).

This is what i'm talking about: http://www.mcmaster.com/#5454K63

I would have personally just made the pump bigger so you don't
have to pump as much and keep it as a modified super soaker, but it's your gun
