Brass on Brass At3k Mod
By: Zaxbys

This is a tutorial over how to do a brass barrel replacement ,and "pump plug mod" to an At3k.


--- You' ll need 1 Airtech 3000, found mostly nowadays in twin packs at Dollar General.

--- Expoxy quick setting kind ( has to be)
--- 36 inches (or 3 sticks) of 17/32" Round Brass Tubing (found at most hobby stores for those who don't know which can be bought in 12in long pieces.
--- 12 inches (or 1 stick) of  9/16"  Round Brass Tubing
--- Some type of Brass Polish (perferably Brass- O)
--- An old rag
--- Hotglue gun
--- Hotglue


---Exacto Knife

Now onto the write- up.

This write- up will take you through the following mods:
1. "Pump Plug" Mod
2. "Brass on Brass barrel replacement
-a preparing the turret
-b preparing the barrels

Part 1.  "Pump Plug" Mod

First take your stock Airtech 3000 and remove all the screws making sure not to strip them, remembering the screws on both sides of the pump handle ( We will refer to tfhe gun as an At3k for the rest of the write- up).  You should now see the internals shows in the picture above.

Now locate the part shown in the picture above and pull it out.

Look at the end of the pump, and using your hotglue gun  pluge the hole in the center making sure the glue is flush to the plastic around it, and slide the pump back into the place where you removed it from.

Warning: Now that you have plugged the overpressure release valve I would not suggest pump the gun up more than 3 pumps at the fear of something in the gun such as a plastice tube bursting! So remember no more than 3 pumps!

Now we'll move on to the next phase of our write-up!

Part 2.  Brass barrel replacement

A. Preparing the Turret

(Thanks Cxwq for the picture)

Now close up the gun that was all the dealing with the internals that you'll have to do.  Start the barrel replacement by locating the line on the turret barrels about 3/4 the way back.  You want to cut the barrels, using your hacksaw, 5/16" behind that line to leave you enough of the barrel stub to work with your brass. Making very sure that you dont damage the auto- rotate mechanism in tehecenter of the turret.

You should now have something that looks like something shown in the picture above.

B. Preparing the Barrels

First you'll want to take your 36inches (3 pieces) of 17/32" brass and cut them into 6 inch sections.  Then take your 12 in. (1 piece) of 9/16" brass and cut it into 2 inch sections.

Now take one 2in section of 9/16" brass and slide it over 1 6in section of 17/32 brass so that you getr something resembling the picture above. (This is why the mod is called "Brass on Brass barrel replacemnt!"?) Repeat this with all six barrels.

Now get your At3k now with cut barrels, your newly constructed barrels, your epoxy, and lots of patience!

You'll want to start by preparing your epoxy, and putting a small amount of the epoxy inside of one of the barrels on the At3k as well asl on the end of the 9/16" brass now attached to your barrel (shown above)

Now this is where quick setting epoxy comes in handy because now you'll need to properly center and set you barrel where it is straight and level like shown above.  Make sure you hold it in place until it sets because the barrels will shift and  accuracy problems can occur later. 

Repeat gluing the barrels until you have glue all six barrels in the same manner until you get something as shown above.
When all the barrels are finished glueing and have set so that they no longer move, they should be allowed to cure overnight before being fired as to not risk the glue breaking it bond with the plastic.

Now after the epoxy cures:

1.Using your exacto knife clean off any excess glue
2. Polish the outside of the barrels with Brass- O to get that slick finish brass can have

Next enjoy you newly modded At3k! B.O.B. Style!

10 being the highest ranged gun in all of nerf, I think 8 is reasonable for the longshot.

You beat me to it!  I totally agree with your review. Good job.  Smiley

I made my own UBS for all of my pump guns.  I have a coupler on most of them for interchangeable barrels such as a ompa's clipped barrel, single barrel, speedloader barrel, shotgun barrel, and a few others.  I will work on a write-up soon! Its very effective, and provides me with barrels to serve in any situation I am in on the battlefield.

It does help to reinforce the barrel, but it also provides a better seal because of how I installed it. I put an O-ring between the brass, and the NF barrel providing an optimal seal!
9  General Category / Reviews / Big Blast Review on: June 30, 2007, 09:58:27 am

The Big Blast is a pump action blaster made by BuzzBeeToys. When the gun is stock, it can fire missiles up to 60ft! (Which is amazing for a stock weapon)  It is one of the simplest guns to mod, and it is a sturdy, and powerful weapon at that.  Its very lightweight considering the power it puts out, and is a good weapon to have on and off the battlefield.  It is especially worth the $10.00 price tag on this gun, and I would recommend it to anyone that needs a good powerful wepon that is easy to maneuver around the field!

Stock Range: 9/10
Modded Range: 10/10
Rate of Fire: 6/10 (With a single barrel)
Practicality: 10/10
Fun: 7/10
Mobility: 8/10
Total: 50/60
10  General Category / Reviews / Tech Target Review on: June 30, 2007, 09:47:08 am

The Tech Target  is spring pistol that as a stock weapon fires mega darts.  This gun has very simple intermals, and is probably one of the easiest to mod (In my opinion it was easier than the NF).  It has a good amount of power, and is a good sturdy sidearm to have in every arsenal. I would recommend this gun to any new player that needs a good sidearm that is easy to mod!  The gun also comes with a target board which is fun for a while but after a while just becomes boring! Undecided

Stock Range: 7/10
Modded Range: 8/10
Rate of Fire: 6/10
Practicality: 10/10
Mobility: 7/10
Total: 44/60

Yes, I think its a good site.  It has some real potential! Grin
12  General Category / Reviews / Rapid Fire Rifle Review on: June 29, 2007, 08:49:46 pm

This is a lever action rifle made by BuzzBeeToys.  It uses a six round clip that uses shells.  After the dart is fired from the shells and the action is reopened the Rapid Fire Rifle (or RFR for short) ejected the shells. 

There are many cons to the oerall design and preformance of the gun.  First of all the gun has frequent jams that are very inconvenient fix especially in the middle of a fire fight.  The clip is also very difficult to pull out, and most of the time when you pull the clip out some of the shells fall out too which makes reload a pain! The range on this gun is not very good , even after preforming the few modifications that can be done to this weapon.

Stock Range: 4/10
Modded Range: 5/10
Rate of Fire: 7/10
Practicality: 6/10
Fun: 8/10
Mobility: 7/10
Total: 37/60
13  General Category / Reviews / Longshot Review on: June 29, 2007, 08:31:26 pm

The Longshot is a rife style gun that uses a clipped breech setup, and fires a new type of ammunition called "streamline darts", as seen below. The Longshot has many accesories including a scope (which is really just cosmetic serving no real purpose), an adjustable stock, and a bipod (which I find very helpful when in the prone position).

The blaster is composed of two seperate guns that can be combined together to form a sniper style gun, and also has a smaller blaster in the front as well(Excuse me for using the -s- word everyone) 



Stock Range: 7/10
Modded Range: 8/10
Rate of Fire: 10/10
Practicality: 10/10
Fun: 10/10
Mobility: 7/10 (Without the front gun attached)
Total: 55/60

All around this is a good blaster.  I get an occasional jam, but with its combined ROF, and range up to 80ft. when modded, this gun is a force to be reckoned with!  Although If you are an inexperienced modder do not attempt to mod this gun, it can be difficult at times.

I have an excellent seal on the gun.  Other than that I don't know, I just know this thing is a beast!
15  General Category / Modifications / Re: Modifications picture thread. on: June 29, 2007, 02:53:15 pm
Here is my newest work in progress:

I singled this At3k with a 12" 17/32" K &A brass barrel.  It was then reinforced using a stock NF barrel, and I plan on doing a few a few more things to this baby!  Wink I'll keep everyone posted.
