Topics I've Started

Do we have audio ads on here now? For the longest time I thought this site was Ad-free. Even while typing this an ad came up. Am I the only one getting these?

The .2k!

06 December 2010 - 08:28 PM

So after I learned that my 2k had a busted check valve, I had no clue what i was going to do with it. Then I saw my SSPB hooked onto my vulcan. After looking around my workstation I saw my LSFG handle. Then a crazy idea arose in my head. "Why don't I combine the awesomeness of all of these into one small and convenient blaster?!" My fellow nerfers, I present to you, the .2k! (Thanks to Shardbearer for the name)

Basically, it's a 2k with a SSPB pump mounted to a LSFG handle.

Pathetic Write-Up time!

First get your 2k tank and attach a piece of 1/4" ID vinyl tubing to the tank. Now get your SSPB and cut the pump off. I then took a piece of tubing from the hornet and attached it to the SSPB pump. Nest, slide the tubing from the pump into the vinyl tubing from the pump. Now glue on your PETG barrel (mine was 6 inches). It should look like this:

Now find a spare longshot jam door and cut a piece like so:

Now get your LSFG handle:

Glue the piece of the jam door to the side of the LSFG. (Note: If you are a lefty, glue everything on the oposite side. The gun in this thread is only for right handed people.) :

I don't have any pics of this next part (sorry), but it should be pretty self-explanatory. Take your 2k tank and turn it sideways. Glue it to the front of the handle and glue the firing pin to the trigger (it will take a LOT of fine tuning to get that to work right). Once you have accomplished that, bend the tubing and glue the pump to the piece of the longshot jam door. Finally, reinforce with epoxy putty. The resulting gun should look like this:

OK, now this part is VERY IMPORTANT!!! Do NOT pump until the OPRV valve kicks in. It does weird things to the internal o-ring and is very bad for the gun. ONLY PUMP 20-25 TIMES!!! I have found that this builds up as much pressure as a normal 2k (I think).

This mod was not very easy. In fact, it was a huge pain in the butt. I do feel that it is worth the effort though. It's a very fun blaster.

Questions? Comments? Suggestions? Flames (hopefully not)?

Airtech 2000 Help

I'm having some issues with my 2k. I have attached some 1/4 ID vinyl tubing directly from the pump to the tank, super glued and gooped it on. I'm going to be integrating this onto a LSFG handle or something of the sort so the tubing is very short. Anyway, when I try to pump it, the pump doesn't want to work at all. The pump doesn't want to go forward to push air into the tank. Is it a problem with the tank, or is it because of the ID of the tubing? Or do I just need a new pump? Thanks in advance, Abyss Mods.

Possibly The Simplest Way To Make A Homemade Wye

07 August 2010 - 04:35 PM

After seeing xet's version of the homemade wye (link), I was inspired to make my own and see if it worked. So I present to NerfHaven my homemade wye!

Half inch PVC tee
Half inch PVC elbow (the 90 degree one)
A Dremel with a cutting disc and sanding drum
Hot glue gun and glue sticks

Step One: Get your PVC tee.
Posted Image
Now cut off the top part as shown here:
Posted Image
It should now look like this:
Posted Image

Step Two: Get your PVC elbow.
Posted Image
Now cut it down the middle as shown.
Posted Image

Step Three: Sand both of the pieces you just cut so they are as flat as possible.
Posted Image
Posted Image

Step Four: Sand inside the tee on the side that you plan to insert you barrel. This will ensure easy feeding.
Posted Image

Step Five: Glue both pieces together.
Posted Image

And now you're done! All you have to do is attach a clip, a barrel, and a blaster and you have a fully functioning homemade hopper clip!

I give credit to xet for the idea of this project.

Image Posting Problems

27 June 2010 - 05:27 PM

Hello all, I have been having problems posting images, and I'm sure that other people have also been having problems with this. I have searched and I have followed the instructions here, but it is not working. When I look at my post preview, an error shows up that says the following:

Sorry, dynamic pages in the [IMG] tags are not allowed.

So now i turn to the NerfHaven community asking for your help with posting images. Thanks in advance.
