Monster XL minimization

Postby TheSoaker » Sat Aug 17, 2013 8:35 pm

Hi everyone remember my single nozzle Monster XL? Well I'm in the process of minimizing it and I need some help. Here it is so far. Just imagine it without the duct tape: Image Image it's even smaller than my cps 1200! Anyways I need help permanently attaching the trigger/ pump to the main body of the gun. Suggestions anyone?

Umm how about not cutting off the part that holds the pump? Why didn't you just hack off the part with the QFD +bipod and save the pump area? o.O
PS I imagine you have your reasons, I'm just wondering.

What do you have to work with? If you have any plastic structural pieces you can use, that's a good place to start. Or start building a frame out of aluminum.

You could just glue the trigger/pump to the base. Does it still have both PCs or did you remove one? If you removed one, you could minimize it even more. I would keep both though, that will really improve shot time. Epoxy putty should work well for mounting the trigger/pump.

Haha, random thought. if you really wanted to minimize it you could have removed the pump and made it a QFD only gun.

That being said, you have already removed quite a bit. I don't own a Monster XL, and more importantly, I don't have your Monster XL in front of me.
Duct tape, cable ties, metal strap clamps, glue. I hope these suggestions help, but in the end you are going to have to do this. Good luck!

try to make sure that the pump and trigger are lined up straight with the body of the gun, you may need to do some cutting for this to happen.

I removed one of the PCs for battle practicality. I just want to see how small and light I can get the largest super soaker in the world to be. I'll do some work on it today.

Please tell me that you can still un-remove that PC. A Monster XL with one PC is just like any 2500, 2000, Monster, while trying to put two PC's on a CPS 2500, 2000, Monster.... that's not happening, ever. You can do a lot of things to a Monster XL but at some point you must look at it for what it is, and use it accordingly. Or else it might as well just be any old Monster/CPS gun that you have hacked apart.
Still, in the quest for knowledge, many things must be done. I'm interested to see how that works.
Reducing the MXL from two nozzles to one, that's just awesome, by the way. You should get 3-4 seconds of shot time on the largest nozzle! And as far as replacing the res with a backpack, that's cool too, IMHO.
Wish I had a MXL to play with...

Sorry man the other PC is in my hydro cannon. And I won't be using the stock nozzles and laminator, I'll be making my own.

i just think you trashed the xl. one pc? you messed up the pump area? okok, if you didn't take out the pc and you made a good pump handle and track, tape and seal, it could've been a great blaster. now, eehhh.

No one's famous here(except for iSoaker :goofy: ), but I think you'd gain a reputation to... uh... mod.
