At2k Airtank Bottle Expansion

05 June 2005 - 07:47 PM

While fooling around with a slightly messed up AT2k today, I decided to expand the small airtank of the AT2k. First I washed all the goo out of the liquitron, poked a hole in the rubber seal, and cut about a 1/4'' section of the good tank. I then proceeded to take a water bottle and make a hole in it's cap large enough to fit over the very bottom of the goo tank. I applied a generous amount of hot glue around the tank and cap and cut up my case to fit everything in. The results with stock micros were as follows:

Range: 3 70' shots, 2 30' shots
Pumps: 60 for a full tank

Well, not too great. 60 pumps for 5 shots isn't the best in the world, but at least it's a kinda semi-automatic AT2k. I think I also have a small air leak which may be giving me mediocre results. I wouldn't really reccomend doing this, but oh well.

BTW: This gun is a Crayola/PVC breech. PVC is 7.5'' long.

Edit: Just checked, and I have no airleak.

Edit2: I lied. I did have an airleak, but I think I fixed it.

Bottle Airtank

Another fine use for bottles. As an airtank!

This actually isn't too bad. All you have to do is to put a tire stem into the bottle and glue it all up. I hooked one up to a hose handle and it pretty well after making everything fairly airtight. With a 24 oz. Mt. Dew bottle...I could get around...oh...50-60ish with one BB weight Stefans and a 6 in copper barrel. This is a fairly good airtank, and I'm sure a 2 ltr. one would work much better. Cheap and effective... Try it out.

Bottle Gun!

I came up with this idea a bit earlier today. Simply, it's a Crayola in a piece of SCH 80 1/2'' PVC put into the bottle of a neck, and electrical taped. It might just be the simplest homemade. Picture:

I hope you like it!

Edit: You use it by putting a Micro/Stefan in the barrel and stepping on the bottle or holding it in your hands and pounding it with your fist or squeezing the bottle quickly..
Ranges: Umm...kinda depends on how hard you hit it. Once hit..the bottle neck angles up so the dart goes up too.
Accuracy: Its not there
I guess you could set a few of these up as like mortars or something...or just shoot them in the house.
There you have it..a cheap and fairly effective homemade.
