It would help if you specified which gun you intend to mod.


I'm moving this to modifications...

A drill would work, just go slow to make sure you don't screw anything up.

And as everyone knows, money makes the world go round. It's also the root of all evil, therefore the world going round is evil, and we should stop the rotation of the planet.

I think he meant restrictor, as in air restrictor.

I would strongly suggest against taking the restrictors out of an at3k without doing a barrel replacement. Just saw them off at the line and put brass or PETG on.

Depending on your dart fit, it could work, I think.

A major concern is the weight of the material, and whether or not the rotation system can operate under the stress and weight of relatively heavy copper pipe.

I'd go with brass or PETG because they weight the least and allow for better dart fit.

Most likely not. Copper is fairly heavy and the 3kís turret isnít supper beefy. Some people have been able to do it, but some havenít. Iíd suggest not risking it; youíre really not gaining anything by using copper anyway in most cases.

Hobby shops are a good bet for gas. It runs around $1.50-$6.00 a foot. I donít think you can multibarrel using PVC, but most people use Ĺ PVC or CPVC (micros/megas).

Now you need to use the forum search function for that information.

Brass prices differ on store and brand. Go for K&S over Steelworks.

I doubt you can fit PVC barrels on it- if all else fails, and I mean ALL else, you could use crayola barrels.

My ACE sells 36" sections of brass for about $6-$7, so I guess you could go off of that price. 36" should be enough for you to mod one AT3k, assuming you use 6" barrels.

Copper works, but you have to use M type, its lighter. I use copper instead of brass because I dont feel like going out and buying more xpensive brass. (copper m is about 5 bucks 3 ft, I think) It works fine for me on my 2k and 3k multibarreled. BTW, how many pumps on a modded 3k?
