If you can get your hands on an Argon/Xenon/Krypton by BuzzBee, get one. With an Argon, you can get over 5 seconds shot time from 3 pumps.

Good luck!

Neat design!

The only problem I see (at the moment) is your choice of reservoir. 2-Liter bottles aren't the most structurally stable of materials. They crush and bend really easy. I'd try 4" thin-walled PVC. It's usually used for drain pipe. It's really light, too.

It should, yes. It turns rock solid when it dries. It's absolutely impossible to remove without a Dremel or sandpaper (plus six hours of sanding). It's not too hard to find and costs about $5.

Epoxy putty. That stuff works miracles. The only problem is if you get too much on your parts, it won't properly fit back into the casing. You could also try some marine epoxy. Whatever you choose, it needs to be thoroughly waterproof AND able to withstand pressure.

Good luck!

That's not even funny. :p Krazy Glue is one of the WORST substances for use on Super Soakers. Except Gorilla Glue. That stuff's terrible. The Krazy Glue wouldn't stand a chance on its own, but, if you glue a piece of wire coat hanger to both halves of the plastic pieces, it should work. I did that ...

I might be interested in those last two guns. I'm not too familiar with them, so pics would help. How much would they be going for? Thanks. Yeah...I've kinda been inactive lately.

Wow! Your writeups were pretty impressive. Could you give us some ranges and shot times for all of your nozzles? And could you do the same for your gun after removing the nozzle assembly (so we can see what improvement that PVC nozzle gave)? Thanks! Wow... It's been a while since I've posted. I'll ...

Maybe there's a hole or crack somewhere on the plastic (either near the washer or on the shaft) that is allowing air to escape. It's been a while since I've looked at an air pressure pump rod, so it may not be a possibility. Can't hurt to look, though. Also, you may not have gotten a good enough se...

An XP Pool Pumper? I've been looking for one of those! How about I take it off your hands? :p Well, the Hydroblade sounds like it's experiencing the classic Max-D valve mess-up. The valve has stopped opening for whatever reason (my guess is that something snapped). The other two sound like there's ...

Well, I am interested. It seems to be everything that the Shieldblaster line hoped to accomplish, except a little more functional.

From what I can tell, the shield actually flips out. It looks like an elaborate fan design, but I can't be certain.

Maybe you could simply attach a piece of foam (similar to memory foam, but less dense). This would reduce the noise without restricting air flow.

Take your time with those pics. :goofy: I'm just kidding.

Well, about six months ago, I was playing one of my favorite games, Timesplitters: Future Perfect. I was using a gun called the K-SMG (which I think stands for Kalashnikov-Sub Machine Gun). This gun works like a standard rifle, except for one thing: it is capable of using a rocket-propelled grenade...

Oh. Capacity? It should be alterable, depending on the user. My backpack design for my homemade-in-progress is two of the Advanced Quick-Fill Bottles strapped together. Then, I have simply linked them using a T-Joint and 1/2" PVC. The PVC fits in the lip of the bottle perfectly.

How would it look if my soaker was some cheap knock off brand? I must disagree with this. Actually, I almost take offense to it. :soaked: Buzz Bee guns are every bit as good as today's Super Soakers.

Perhaps you could take the tubing and the piece that attaches to the gun, and replace the backpack piece with this.

This will greatly increase your capacity, while still maintaining the usefulness of the Max Infusion backpack.
