Well, I figured since Carrtoon didn't exactly have a write-up for this and there are lots of new people out there, I might as well do one.

Introduction:

Carrtoon gets all the credit for the making of the DTG/At3k or 2k. I decided to recreate his mod for myself because it is so awesome. Here's a link to his original thread: LINK. I recently had to open my DTG up again and I figured: Why not make a write-up? So here it is:

Step 1: Open up your DTG and take out the plunger and catch so it looks like this:

Step 2: You will have to dremel the inside so that your airtank can squeeze into there. Here is approx. where you should cut:

Another pic:

Step 3: I am assuming you have your airtank and pump out like this already:

a) Cut off the small ring attached on the plunger that allows a seal between the plunger and the turret and glue it on the nub on your air tank:

b ) MAKE SURE YOU KNOW HOW TO SEAL THE TUBING OF THE PUMP TO THE AIRTANK BEFORE FITTING IT IN THE DTG!

Step 4: DO NOT CONNECT THE TUBING TO THE AIRTANK YET. Pass the tubing through the hole* that you made and then connect it to the airtank. Place the airtank in there and make sure it is a good fit and the black seal piece is pressed against the turret, then glue it in there to make sure it doesn't move around:

Step 5: Drill a small hole in a popsicle stick or anything stick-like and use some strong glue to connect it to the trigger like so:

Step 6: You are almost done now, but here comes maybe the trickiest spot. You have to connect the trigger to the firing pin of your airtank. I cannot really explain how to do it, but I will just say to use strong wire or something, so that you don't have to re-open it every so often. Also, DO NOT make the wire too tight or the air tank will fire before the turret has turned:

Here's how I did it:

Step 7: Close the gun up, put the screws back in place, and put the pump anywhere you want. I would recommend somewhere secure, unlike the people who have their pumps sticking out of the back of their guns...:

Posted Image

Step 8: Now, you can add anything you want to the gun. I added a DTG mag holder, a foregrip and a stock:

Stats:
RoF: What you would expect in an at3k except with 4 mroe shots.
Accuracy: How do you measure accuracy? It can hit it's targets fine.
Range: Around 60-65 ft. Measured with taggers and the stock barrels.
Other: People might like this integration because it's clean (unless you add on a ton of stuff like me).

Questions, comments or criticism? Tell me!

Nice, looks very clean. I love that in a gun. Try to mod the barrels not with brass, pvc, ect. You'd get even better ranges off of that.

Nice. This is actually what I plan to do with my 2k - replace the 3k with the 2k minus the pump. It looks like it will work perfectly. Thanks.

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.

Wow, I can imagine this thing with twelve six inch or so barrels sticking out of the front, looks like I need to buy me a dtg. Looks cool, 65 feet is nice for stock barrels, are they fully stock or are the ARs removed? Does the popsicle stick configuration work well? It looks a bit iffy to me, but thats just me. Awesome job.

When did the DTG clip mod come out? I want it. I think that I could use something like that at Geddon Next year, because that was my only working gun when I got there. Enough reminiscing, wouldn't a 2K be a better choice because its smaller?
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.

The AR's are removed, but the pieces that connect to the turret are still in place. The popsticle trigger configuration is fine and there are no signs of it breaking. I probably will brass it soon, but it will take a lot of brass, so the clip version is fine for me now. Here is a link on how to do it: DTG Clip. The clip mod can be improved however and I encourage people to look into it. Oh yeah, General Cole, 2k's aren't really available in Canada but my TRU has plenty of 3k's in stock.

I love the idea of a air gun with an auto advancing turret! Almost like an at3k!

I should give you some time to absorb that. Let's say...a month.
