Due to a request. I will explain more in depth as to what I did to the super soaker.
K- modding is when you take balloons and wrap them over the guns bladder. This gun has a bladder like a really thick balloon. 50 balloons later and she can hold more pressure.
Water restrictors. Imagine air restrictors but for water. They are in the front of the nozzle. There were alot on this gun. There was 2 honeycomb looking peices restricting waters flow there was a spring in between them and finally a metal mesh. I am sure these are also used so a chunk of tiny metal doesnt blind some poor kid.
Check valve freezeing is basically plugging the over pressure release valve but you need to do some cutting epoxying for this thing to work. You cut inbetween two sections of plastic tubing and pl;ug them with a screw or anything else. Then epoxy it up.
The green arrow is pointing to the pump shaft and the red lines indicate where the tube was.
Inside that tube was an Rubber washer and a pole with a spring on it. When the pressure built up too high the washer would be pushed back on the spring and air would be released.
This is the culprit I was talking about.
This thing would also blow a big puff of air but with stink thats all.
I did so many thing to modify this thing but nothing would give, I was able to shoot a stock dart 30 feet. I was also able to shoot a stefan 30 feet, But thats it and here is the answer
This this is why the stink gun and soon to be the airzooka are going to fail. Sure they spit alot of air but they cannot handle the pressure. The pressure will build up slightly but then push the dart out slowly. It cant generate the same kind of pressure a good old fashioned spring can.
With guns like these, It is safe to say, their slightly different plungers aren't going to be strong enough.
500th post! Wow
