Ok I have a AT3K mod idea that may make it a good gun. What if I got a bike pump to replace the stock air tank and got 30" of 17/32 brass to replace each barrel with 5" of brass? Anyone done this?

Almost everything that's been done to the at2k can also be done to the at3k. The internals are very similar. The at3k simply has a larger valve/chamber and an automatic advance mechanism.

What about putting on a better air tank, like a bike pump, none of the at2k or at3k mods have that done to them, would it make the at3k shoot farther?

??? The pump isn't the airtank it would just reduce the times you would have to pump. As CS said, almost everythig has been done to the At3k and the at2k...why would this mod make it the ultimate one?

The trade-off of adding a tank to an at3k or 2k is that it will take much longer to prime the weapon with the pump. If you simply plug the stock pump you'll be able to get the gun up to a much higher pressure level, and thusly get great range. 90 feet is very easy to acheive without doing anything beyond just that modification.

Is there anything else I can do to make it a better weapon?

I'd investigate CO2. Perhaps an under slung nerf grenade launcher.

...don't forget a Scope and a Laser Sight. Both are absolutely imperative.
