The reason I did this instead of the regular AT2k mod is because the check valve of my AT2k was broken so the gun leaked. To prevent this I decided to completly remove the pump and make an airtank instead. It is my first time posting images on nerfhq so tell me if it dosn't work. The gun isn't complete and I havnt tested it. I am postive this will work. I don't see any flaws with it. I nested 1" of 1/2" pvc into 3" of cpvc. Then I put lots of epoxy on the cpvc and inserted it into the pump tube and let it dry. Finally i put on a pvc coupler with a thread one one end and attached the adapter along with the schreader valve. More pics to come still.

It is pumped by:
1. Bike pump
2. Foot pump
3. Electric air compressor

Well that certainly fixed the problem, but its going to be a lot of trouble just priming that thing. If anything, you can glue a pump directly on the gun so you wouldn't waste any time placing a hose to your tire valve. Believe me, girls do not dig the foot-pump. Good job on saving the gun, I'm curious to see how far that thing will shoot.

And if worse comes to worse, than just buy another twin pack.

Well that's cool.

I think it's going to take a lot of pumps to prime such a large airtank, and that the benefits from having a large airtank will be wasted on such a light projectile as a nerf dart. BUT, maybe it'll be this amazing loser machine (cue "no losers in nerf" flaming)!

Copy!
