The Jean Machine. Now with a much lower incidence of mistaking it for a paintball hopper.

Pump blew out, so I revived it. New layered bladder with rf20 internals gets at least 60 feet.

If two powerful is a problem then just go with one powerful. I guess this style of hopper will work even beyond three powerful..

- I kept the auto advancing turret mech.
- Used craft foam on the turret face instead of rubber washers on the tank.
- Added a Magstrike pump handle.
- Replaced the original tubing with 3/8th" tubing.
- replaced the goo gauge with a cheap dollar store LED.

... the flames make it shoot farther,

First mod posted on here... Here's my new primary! I integrated the Longshot's front gun into it, and actually got the coat hanger method of linking the triggers working. It's really not worth it due to how much of a pain it is. Took an entire day to make it work. Nothing too special as most of this has been done already.

If anyone out there needs any helps with using the coat hanger for their LSFG integration, I have like, 20 pics of my whole set up if they could be of assistance.

Posted Image Posted Image

I Put the LSFG barrel into the Recon Barrel, and put some Front gun stuff on the end for cosmetics. Makes it look much more like a snipr/Assault Rifle than it is stock.

Since the Recon's flip up sights suck, I ripped those off and used their tactical rail clips and bases to create a scope (made from binoculars, so it zooms), and I hot glued the bipod to the other. I'll hyperlink them so I don't post too many pictures.
Recon/Front Gun Barrel
Tactical Bipod
Scope

It fits together quite well, don't you think?

Posted Image

Ooh, and I turned the Nightfinder's LED into a flashlight. In addition, I added a CPVC barrel and gave the plunger tube a near perfect seal. Shoots about as well as my Longshot does.
Posted Image Posted Image

I also discovered that the Crossfire can shoot just as well as a modded direct plunger system gun like the Nightfinder if you swap the spring with a Jolt's, and also improve the plunger seal. No pic is necessary as all the modding is inside. Considering spray painting all of them, but I'm not that great at it yet and I don't want to ruin them.

Serious shit.

Posted Image

The Big Blast is a standard well-done SVT4B.

Now the interesting part: Super Soaker Arctic Blast, also known as the Iron Man Super Soaker. I've replaced the pump with the amazing Kmart Schwinn pump, and hooked the trigger to the top valve. Everyone else I've seen has destroyed the spring-operated part of the ball valve, which to me is a huge waste. It's still fully functional.

This thing is ridiculously powerful, on par or beyond a titan or jobar. It also is usable at many fewer pumps than either. The bladder plus spring activated ball valve (full 5/8 airflow... dayum) setup is odd though when it comes to barrel setups. I haven't done as much testing as I could, but things are all over the place. It'll shoot a tagger from a 5' barrel through 2 layers of cardboard, then poop out a slug from 16" SCH80. Out of what I've tested medium-length loose-fitting CPVC has worked the best with slugs.

Because so few people have these and the tank is so odd, there is little info on proper dart-barrel fit. It just releases air really weirdly.

Reverse plungers yeeeah!

Posted Image

Recon: Brass barrel, 1st Gen plunger tube with 1/4" polycarbonate solvent welded in for reinforcement, modified seal to not vacuum load, modified dart tooth, and an XPloderZ spring. Yes, a full 9" long spring, pre-compressed to 4.5". Takes forever to put together, but it shoots really far. I'll measure ranges eventually, but i'd guess far past 60'. There are more pictures of the plunger assembly on my photobucket.

Posted Image

Got this from someone dumb who tried to mod it and ended up ripping the shell in half. It's fixed with polycarb and rivets. Everything has broken on this at some point, and much of it is homemade, including the bolt, plunger, spring rest/powerstock, part of the bolt sled, and parts of the shell that were torn up by the previous owner. Again. more pictures on Photobucket.

Finished up a BOSS9-style UMB with a few changes. Credit goes to him for inspiration for the design and for his excellent advice during the build. You can see that the wye is glued directly on the tank, surrounded by 1.5 inch PVC pipe that reinforces the wye. Also, in the back is the stock OPRV, but adjustable. It can range anywhere from 85' at low power, to over 150' at its highest setting.
Posted Image

Close up of the wye joint and 1.5 inch PVC reinforcement. Here you can clearly see the white "push to connect" tube connector that I used here, attached to the blue tubing coming out of the side of the blaster. This allows me to disconnect the on-board pump and connect it to a bigger pump, or an air compressor if I'm feeling adventurous. :)
Posted Image

Why did I choose 1.5" PVC to reinforce the wye? Because that allows me to very easily attach a 7 shot absolver-type shell in a 1.5" coupler and plug the wye.

There is no such thing as overkill. There is only cost efficiency.

My Airzone Triple Shot. Pretty decent air seal (not quite perfect, maybe 80%) but still getting good ranges, OMW 6KG spring, 9in barrels, MIG's epoxy reinforcement, and my first blaster doing complete hand painted. 9inch barrels.
Girlfriend did most of the detailing.

Love the Rayven paintjob! I'd love me a Rayven to muck around with... But they're more than double the US$ price here! :(

Anyway, my Nightfinder and Barricade, Steampunk style...
Posted Image

NF has had it's air-restrictors removed. The NF also has a slightly longer spring.
The Barricade has been modded further: The on/off switch has been moved to under the trigger, so it turns on when you pull the trigger, and it now uses 2 14500's (and a dummy) to power it. I also put a battery-alarm with display in the back, so I can monitor the state of the two batteries (independently and combined, it continuously alternates between #1, #2 and All).
