Is it possible to make your gun shoot a little less hard? I am saying this because we only play indoor wars( combat within 40 feet) and I am using an at2k. Now this thing just flies as you know. This thin makes a loud noise on the wall and I just don't want to make several people bleed. NO one call me a wimp or anything. I play paintball and stuff and they don't hurt at all.
Thanks

Just pump your at2k, let's say, half as many times as you usually do. I'd also recommend using stock darts as another alternative. I wouldn't want some kid chipping my Inca coffee table statue with a stefan.

This isn't NHQ, don't worry about people going nuts on you for it. If they do, they're probably already the pathway to banishment.

I agree, try using stock darts. Or, glue foam on the end of your darts. Or. drill many holes in your barrel.

O ya I put large pieces of foam on my tip but they still hit hard. Ya I guess I'll pump less but if someone else uses it they'll pump it probably all the way up... Drilling holes? Hmmm.... Well I have brass.( I am not very technical, no one in my family owns many tools at all. I think we may have 1 drill.) Thanks

Awesome...those look like they'd be useful just in keeping the glue on my stefans from shattering. I lose more darts that way...

You can drill holes in brass tubing. Even if your drill is... *checks box...* well it doesn't say but my dad had it at least 'till before I was born (I think). Just don't apply too much pressure 'till you get it going otherwise the drill bit will slide off. And have lots of patience.

Well, if your using a single barreled at2k, you could use a shorter barrel, and maybe stick the dart in the front like a pistol instead of ramroding/couplering/breech barreling.

I'm actually making a set of stefans using liquid nails, washers, and these felt dots to cover the washers. Makes weight-centering a foolproof task and I don't have to use the hot glue gun.

That's not a bad idea. Just put the dart at the very tip of the barrel: less time to accelerate before leaving the barrel.

And that way, if you decide to do longer-range battles later on, you haven't rendered useless your gun.

Ya thanks everyone. Nero- I have tried your idea about puting the dart on the tip and it does work but it still goes pretty fast... I think I have an idea though.

Unplug the pump, then you also prevent noobs from over pumping and breaking your gun.
