I've been attempting to integrate an AT3K into a LS shell (the LS is broken beyond repair). However, I can't get the trigger to work.

The white thing is a peice of coat hanger epoxied to the trigger plate and pin. However, it broke off the pin. Before I use stronger/more adhesive, will this work? I noticed the coat hanger bending, and I'm afraid it isn't strong enough. Should I use something stronger? (I would have just used a straight peice of metal, but it would interfere with the bolt- it's where I attached the pump.)

For maximum efficiency?


1. Pump up. Count how many pumps.

2. Keep going until you hear a loud "bang".

3. Subtract one pump from the total. Rebuild your air bladder.


There you go.

That doesn't look like its going to hold even if you use strong glue. The wire will probably bend. I would recomend using a small triangular piece of metal or thin wood. Could you take a picture of the whole inside of the gun so we can get a better idea of what to do?

If I didn't have the pump where the bolt normally is, there would be a straight peice of metal or balsa joining the trigger plate to the firing pin. However, that would keep the bolt from working properly, so I did this instead.

It looks like you could move the airtank forward and down a little to about where the mag goes. Then you could dremel all of the pieces in front of the stock trigger and attach a strip of metal/wood to connect the pin to the trigger. This should also help the pump so it can come out farther and not have to pump more.

Try bending the at3k firing pin to a 90 degree or more angle, then twist the other wire around it. Just be sure not to bend the part of the pin inside the tank, that would probably ruin it.

Navy Seal-

I can't do that, because it'll displace the barrel. However, I could try vynil tubing. And there's no issue with the pump- it goes the same distance as in a stock at3k.
