    I was thinking up a design for my broken recon today.



    url=https://servimg.com/view/17267589/6]Air powered recon Air_po13[/url]

    I was hoping for some feed back (criticism welcome).
    I can explain it better if you need.

    P.S. My recon broke because the back of the plunger broke off.

    Thanks,

    The Bradles did a 4BCON or something (can't exactly remember what he called it) quite a while ago. A 4B tank inside the recon, and the pump for it inside a Raider stock. It was rather impressive.

    You should be able to fit a BBUMB tank (flavour of the moment!!) inside the Recon shell, and mounting a bike/ball pump to the underside of the Recon barrel is fairly simple.

    Personally, I think it would look a lot better having the air tank inside the shell, and you could breech it using conduit, so it's still clip compatible.

    Cheers,

    Yeah, I was hoping to keep the main blaster fairly intact (still clip comp and use a Magstrike or rf-20 tank.

    the picture is of where I want to connect the tank to. For the tank I was hoping to just take the whole black tank casing off my Magstrike and just epoxy it in place in the recon shoulder stock.

    a more elaborate picture.

    sorry I just rushed this in paint.

    For a rush job in paint I am impressed. That setup would work although the ranges wouldn't be anything to write home about.

    Have a browse though the Modifications thread and check anything that looks like a airtank intergration so as to get a few ideas.

    you could put some sort of tank in their, complete with valve set up, to make it semi-auto (sort of)

    Air powered recon Empty Don't hand pump

    Post  G-SPADE Tue Feb 28, 2012 12:30 am

    Mate awesome project, but you should consider using a CO2 bulb / pump instead of hand pump. I'll show you some links and stuff when I get home tonoght.

    Yeh, fair enough. You still don't have a firing tank though...

    Technically a recon is already air powered

    In any case, good luck with the project.

    Air powered recon Empty CO2 Tank

    Post  G-SPADE Tue Feb 28, 2012 6:00 am

    So here's what I was talking bout:

    This is a CO2 pump that would act as trigger and handle, so no hand pumping. (sorry, new members can't send external links so add 'www")

    bikebarn.co.nz/productimages/MEDIUM/IS2545.jpg

    Here's an example of how good a CO2 set up on a Nerf is ;D

    Air powered recon Empty Problem

    Post  G-SPADE Tue Feb 28, 2012 6:19 am

    Only prob you need to work out is building enough psi to push the dart out, and not so much that it breaks the gun. Hopefully the CO2 bulb would out enough pressure without an air build up chamber/tank. Even with a tank, how would you release it via trigger?

    Sorry Kat,

    I forgot all about yours. Perfect example of a nice air tank integration in to a Recon.

    Really interested in seeing your new version. I'm assuming it's semi-auto?

    Cheers,

    Maybe try a big salvo tank. They are small but can supply a reasonable amount of oompf.

    A Big Salvo tank would do pretty good for sure, and as a plus, I have one in my parts bin! I've actually been meaning to have a go at this one for a while, hence my post in the WTB thread. The Magstrike pump is for something else, but one question, would it work for this?

    Where would I get a "big salvo" tank?

    The reason for the Magstrike stuff I also have a broken Magstrike as well (failed halo plasma rifle mod). I thought I could use the Air release valve from that.

    Just for clarification.

    I got mine from a Big Salvo. Lol. But you should be able to use the release valve from a Magstrike, although there's a good chance you won;t be able to release it fast enough for good ranges. This is because the Magstrike release valve is designed to push out a pressurised stream of air for a few seconds, although a proper release valve is meant to dump it out as fast a possible. I'd give it a shot though.
