My idea is to saw off the pump and replace it with a bike tire valve so it can be filled with either a bike pump or an air compressor. This would also make it a lot smaller. What do you think?

The smaller gun would be cool. But the stock pump system works ok. So why would you do that?

I plan on getting an air compressor and would like to be able to use that instead of the pump.

EDIT: Can you post a link?

I could see this being a viable idea, if not an entirely practical one. You do realize that you are going to have to return to said air compressor after every shot, right? In addition, I would also make sure you have some way of telling how much pressure you have already fed into the tank (i.e. a regulator or a pressure gauge that measures psi) unless you want to break the gun and possibly injure yourself in the process. I personaly have 3 titans, two of which can be connected to an external bike pump via a length of tubing I ran from the airtank. It forces me to be stationary, but it reduces the priming to 4-7 pumps (7 for maximum range). Just my two cents worth... feel free to try out your idea, just stay safe! :)

I also plan on getting a regulator. I could bring a small bike into battle if needed. My sentances do not flow very well.

The use of an air compressor would ultimately defeat the purpose of taking off the original pump by sacrificing portability for a quicker reloading process. As Rover said, it would require you to plug the titan into the air compressor before each use. Providing that air compressors need to be plugged into a power source and they are quite cumbersome, using one during any sort of battle would be near impossible. I would honestly like to see you prove me wrong, although I highly doubt you will. Using bike pump is a good idea though.

It's been done... I did it with CS's DIY external air tank. Here's a video of my tank hooked up to my Magstrike:

I broke my clippers trying to cut the spring. So I couldn't break the spring with my bare hands so I used a hammer to pound the clipper handle and one of the clippers broke off.

Thank you Wldworld! I was trying to find CaptainSlug's topic about his HPA/Low pressure tank setup. I have no idea why I couldn't seem to find it. Anyways- Wldworld is right. It's been done before, and if you really want to, you can do the same thing to your Titan.
P.S. -Wldworld, I watched a few of your videos, and I must say I am impressed! Nice work!

Where is ryan with is minimized titan, or bags, or anyone else? Simple cheap and easy.
We should stop calling out/making fun of/pissing GC off. He's actually contributed and is available for trade. He's a better than average member no doubt. Got your back Cole.

Only having one shot isn't so bad because I would use it for geurilla (?) attacks i.e. run up, shoot, run back to my air compressor.

And then while you're running away, you get shot in the back because you have nothing to keep them pinned down besides perhaps a sidearm - guerilla only works if you can keep them from chasing you, my friend.

Have an air compressor in your backpack.
Shoot
Flip the switch
Turn it off
Shoot

It only needs to be on for 3-5 seconds.

You're an idiot.

A: Smaller air compressors are pretty fucking heavy.
B: You turn it on to fill up the compressor's tank, so you don't turn it on after every shot.
C: Are you going to run an extension cord to your backpack?
D: There have been so many better answers in this thread - such as having an external pre-filled tank or using a bike pump that takes less pumps to fill the titan. Any of these take less time than the "3-5 seconds" you turn on your "backpack compressor".
E: You didn't even think out this at all. You don't just plug a compressor straight in to your gun unless you plan on having shards of plastic explode in your face.

I'm pretty sure he was thinking of something like this. Definitely backpack size, battery powered, also has auto shut-off when pressure is reached.

Ease off a little, maybe switch to decaf.

I thought he was thinking of an actual compressor. That's more of a pump type thing.

It is an "actual compressor". Portable compressors work the same way as stationary ones. Mine runs on batteries and has plenty of power. I'm hooking it up to my Titan as well, although I'm leaving in the original pump.

Just make sure it outputs at that low of a pressure reliably, or you risk blowing the internals up in your face. Any idea what size fittings the internal hoses of the Titan are?

Not sure. I'm planning on standardizing all of my air guns on bicycle-pump connections.
