Dear NH,

Quick question: how does one relocate the pump of a xbz? I have a fitting that goes over the current pump tube, that then can connect to a nerf pump I have, so i just need to know if I need to do anything to the xbz tank or pump itself before I fruck it up and get plastic shards in my face again.

Edit: Grammar corrections.

The tank end of the pump tube includes a check valve. So you just need an airtight connection in the tube itself (after it's cut shorter) to hook up to your replacement pump.

many people cut off  and tap their pump heads and then use plumbers goop to seal the pump head into the end of the cut down pump shaft.

Welp my connector broke, so is it a goodish idea to just use a metric ton of hotglue and stick in the pump's tube? Or should i buy a new connector?

Edit: i may be able to rip apart a broken pump and make a good connector out of it.

oh i am currently doing that mod with a hornet pump. i had help from a very nice member of this community named TheManta, and what he did was he put the tube from the replacement pump into a hole drilled into the original plunger tube, then secured the original plunger head housing the overpressure valve in with a screw, i did the same with my blastzooka and it works great. dont forget to plug the plunger head of the replacement pump though so that is only runs on the stock opv. and about the hot glue, i tried that and im not sure if it makes a difference or not.

Hey that's me! I did pretty much exactly what shmmee said. It's in no way optimal but it gets the job done and I didn't have to mess with the tank itself much at all. Here are some pictures that might help

Thanks The Manta, I think I may try to do it that way if my spare connector breaks or if it doesnt fit. Do you think i could use hotgule instead of goop for the seals? I dont have great history with the stuff.

Finished (For Now) the XBZ pump relocation and barrel replacement(s).

 

1/2In PVC Coupler with a 1/2in CPVC Coupler rammed inside of it all attached to the stub leftover after removing the barrel. Coupler secured to tank with 2 layers of superglue and 2 layers of hot glue. Also plugged the pump (not pictured) with a screw up the air release hole.

 

The PVC Coupler fits Rival HIR's smooth as butter, so thats one kind of ammo, then the other 3 barrels have the darts they accept lined in front of them. (Smallest barrel has pvc pipe stub attached to bottom because its too short to reach the CPVC Coupler)

secure that coupler more with more material, goop and eputty, 
it's not going to last too long like that with it being a coupler thats constantly removing attachments. 

I like that integration however, very nice and jank af. 7/10 mod

Soon it's gonna be under another blaster I'm working on. I plan to redo the hotglue with goop, but leave the superglue.
