Just for those of you who arenít familiar with the Manta Ray, it has two separate shots that each shoot two darts, for a total of four darts. As you can seen I took a decent spring gun with poor range and good ROF (the Manta Ray) and strapped on two AT2Ks underneath the shell, hence the name 4k (2000 x 2= 4000, yeah). Before doing this, I greatly improved on the range of the manta ray. It started out shooting mega stefans about 20í. But after simply wrapping the plungers in electrical tape and add adding new barrels, it gets about 50-60 ft. The internals of the Manta Ray are ripe with the opportunities of modification. While there are two separate plungers with on connected plunger shaft, there is only one spring. Another could be added for more power. Also, the two separate plungers could easily be rigged to a single barrel for much more power. Expect some more improvements in the weeks to come.
Anyway, I had to cut down some of the Mantaís shell to fit the 2Ks but it worked out nicely and only raised the shell of the manta by about 1 inch. Overall, I am very satisfied about the results of the project. I expect to continue perfecting it with a different trigger system for the air techs ( Iím not a fan of key rings), and more mods for the manta ray.
Ranges: Manta ray ~57 ft
Airtech 2K ~93 ft
Thanks for your time and please leave some feedback and criticism.
