Water Warriors Storm Surge
Tech: Air Pressure, HP version released as "Storm Surge Elite" when CPS patent expires.
Dimensions: ~23" x 3.8" x 9.8" Basically between an XP 110, SC 600, and Colossus 2
Nozzle Selection: 1x, 3x, 5x, quad burst on pump. Turn ball valve on pump to turn Storm Surge into piston pumper. I feel like this would be something you could market. "Double Trouble" "Double the Power" "Double the Output," and whatever about the ability to fire streams or shoot every time you pump.
Reservoir: 48 - 54 oz the handle is part of the reservoir in order to maximize reservoir size. If possible I would make the trigger guard part of the reservoir in order to add even more capacity.
PC: 15-17 oz
Pump: 1.9-2 oz

The pump being able to be used for pump-action was done on one of the Storm Guns.
The biggest problem I see with this design is the reservoir extending into the grip. As the grip is usually made from the two halves of the blaster being molded separately and joined by screws, if the handle needed to be water tight, it would either require gluing the seams (more prone to leaks) or having an internal single piece that is water tight, but not easily created to that shape). With CPS tech, the stats look reasonable.
the oncoming storm wrote:Yeah I ripped off the XP 150, But I re-sized it to give us what we wanted
Nozzles 3x, 5x, 10x, XP shower nozzle (It's got a larger spread than quad burst)
Capacity 100oz (I did the math I think that should be right)
PC volume 25oz pressurized
Pump volume 2oz per stroke
Dimensions should fit as well,
