Ok, coming into this mod I really was kicking myself for singling one of my At3k's only to have the other one break. I need some more rate of fire, and I just got my shipment of OMC's PETG in, and I got home early from work so I decided to do this.

Materials Needed:
2 Feet of your barrel material of choice (Preferably PETG)
4" of a less wanted barrel material(or something similar)
1 Pen barrel, the white plastic kind that are easy to take apart
1 Elastic
1 CPVC coupler
Hot glue
Electrical tape
Plumber's Goop(optional)

Tools Needed:
Hot glue gun
Needle nose Pliers
Barrel cutting device

This mod assumes that you have already singled your Airtech, and removed all of the turning crap.

1. Goop your CPVC coupler to the airtank, preferably centered on the air outlet.

2. Tug on the metal rod that held your turret on, as to extend it from its hidey hole but not to pull it out. Put some hot glue in one end of your pen barrel and shove it on the metal rod, still holding the rod out. You want to get as much pen on the rod as possible.

3. Cut your barrel material into four 6" pieces, and depending on what barrel you're using wrap one end in electrical tape so it will fit snugly in the coupler.

4. Sit one of your barrels and your "less wanted barrel material" on a flat surface parallel each other. Put hot glue in the crack between the tubes and smear it around. Do this on both sides of all four barrels, doing ones adjacent to the first one last. You should end up with this:

5. Take your elastic, and put it inbetween the barrels, on the inner piece so it has two barrels on either side of it. Stretch it with your hand like so:

And put it over and to the back of the pen barrel like this:

6. Slip your barrel assembly over the pen and you're done! You may want to add support to your coupler in the form of tape so it doesn't wobble around.

People could use this method to Falcon out their guns once the AT2k turrets disappear for the most part.

Yes, Falcon is now also a verb.

Anyway, I like the mod, how does the range stack up against a regular turreted 3k? Singled?

Range is the same as any singled At3k with PETG barrels. I'll measure it tomorrow. I never got a chance to measure my turreted Airtech with any barrels other than crayolas, so the range with the fix I put in it is only like 40'.

Well, now that there is a live AT3K thread, here is what i have done (no pics yet as my pc is still getting repaired): brassed one barrel of the turret, with 8.5" 17/32". Range: max 80', effective 65'. Other barrel, 12" 17/32". Range: 60' max, 45' effective. Anybody find an optimum length for their AT3K with brass?

Hey Prometheus, get the fuck outta my thread if all you're gonna do is try to hijack it.
