My sister finally got her camera working, so her is my first mod write up. Well, to start this is probably one of the easiest, and most efficient barrel mod. On NH, there is no at2k mod that involves a coupler or that is singled. This mod is nothing special, but I like it because it is easy, effective, cheap, and a good mod for all you newer nerfers who want to get into it. This mod has probably been done a million times but there is no write up for it so here it is.

To start here are the materials you will need:
- at2k
- hot Glue
- hacksaw/ good scissors/ dremel
- cpvc coupler
- 6-8 cpvc
- Screwdriver

First of all open the gun, and take out the turret, you won't need it.

Glue the coupler to the white top of the air chamber where the air comes out of the gun. It wont hurt if you put to much glue. In this case the more the better, and you could use epoxy or something but hot glue does the job for this mod.

Plug the pump now, with a dash of hot glue. It won't decrease your guns life much, and it will help in range.

Put all parts back together and it should look like the picture

Then, you will need to trim the case. Just trim the case enough, so that the case is not covering any part of the coupler, so that the barrel can go in nice and easy. For this job I just used scissors, it is easier and can suprisingly cut throught the plastic pretty good.

This is what your final gun should look like with the barrel in the coupler. This mod is great, and this coupler mod helps with its rof.

P.S - on the final picture, that is not my real barrel that is a foot long pipe of cpvc, I couldent find my 8 inch barrel. So use an 6-8 inch one for best results

ranges ( level shot)
- 91 Feet
- 96 Feet
- 101 Feet

I measured with a yard stick and rounded up.

Great write up man. I could understand everything you were writing. When I get my at2k I'll most likely do the same mod. Once again awsome first write-up

That is the straightest looking barrel for a AT2K I've ever seen in my nerfing career.
Nice.

I'll answer this one for ya
- I prefer using Epoxy ( found at local Home Depot or Lowes) If I can't get my hands on epoxy then I use superglue then put some hotglue over it to perfect the seal. And finally grab some electrical tape and just tape it over.


-Um how could you tell that the barrel is straight? There are no pictures showing how straight the barrel is so I don't know what you are talking about.

Note- I am not saying the barrel isn't straight you just can't tell from the pics

I was thinking something today. What if you glue some pvc onto the AT2k turret? then you could interchangable turrets!

Well Sam, to answer your question, I used hot glue, and tons of it. I don't think epoxy would make much of a difference in this case, because if you glue it right it well stay on very nicely, and be sturdy. Or atleast mine does.

Also, yes my barrel is pretty straight, I was suprised after I modded it, seeing that most at2ks have their barrels slanting upward a little.

Thanks, I talked to a friend of mine today about this and he put a chunk of cpvc in the bottom half to give the hot glue move surface area. So Iím going to redo mine pretty soon.
