This thread better fits in 'The Armoury' section.

As for taking off those orange 'pump caps', there are many methods, but no simple, easy, sure-fire method. Some pry it off using screwdrivers or a sharp knife. Others have used saws or vice-grips to wrench it off. I've found using screwdrivers together with lots of prying work best for me. Just beware of damaging the inner pump shaft when attempting to get the piece off.

When my FF broke i opened it up, removed the small nozzle, with a saw and sealed the hole up, so now i'm left with just the FF nozzle and CPS cylinder.

You are probley thinking "How'd you get the water in?"
Well, simply open the nozzle, shove the nose inside, let go of the "trigger", and hold the hose as hard as you can, until it's full.
OFFF! ( Quick fill Flash Flood!)

You only get one shot, but it's good as a 3rd arm.

Ps: This idea is MINE, don't say YOU made it up.

If you read the article about taking apart a Max-D 6000, it is about the same, unless the thing is like my Hydroblades, which would then mean you have to saw it off. I would recommend trying the former of the two first though (just don't pull so hard that you break the plastic)

Noone's going to steal your idea, and if anyone here saw it stolen, we would let you know.
