Default Nozzle Selector Mod

I wish to build a Nozzle Selector for my newly acquired CPS 2000. Not just an end cap drilled out, but an actual rotating nozzle selector. I was inspired by -G-JiV- 's mod to his CPS 2000. However, I want a selector that is easier to build and adjust.

I am currently working on mounting my Vindicator's nozzle selector to CPVC. CPVC fits perfectly into the nozzle on the 2000, and I am extremely hesitant to hack up the gun.

Does anyone have any ideas about troubles that I might run into?

I am worried about the pressure from the 2000 shooting the nozzle assembly off of the gun. Is this likely?

I also considered making a turret like this, but with CPVC end caps drilled to various sizes on the end of then barrels.

What do you guys think of these ideas?

I don't think anyone's really made a rotating selector. If I had a CPS 2000, I would just leave it as it is, or maybe build a screw-on selector. I don't think the blast will knock it off, but it especially won't if you use epoxy or something.

here you are wrong, my friend, Hahaha, I built up an rotating nozzle selector myself^^ hehe and it works great!

And I still have got the CPS 2000's original 30 X ::: nozzle...but also 5 other really useful nozzles, compared with the power of a CPS 2000...just a great weapon! xD

I never thought of this when I built up this selector, but may I am a genius

Update:
It works! I attached the ball valve and attached nozzle selector of the vindicator to 1/2" PVC, which is connected to 1/2" CPVC. This plugs right into the nozzle of the 2000. I am getting about 45' range with the vindicators medium nozzle, and it shoots for 10 seconds. I am working on attaching the selector directly to the 1/2" CPVC, as the ball valve is a major restriction. I still need to drill the fan blast to a respectable size. the biggest nozzle of the vindicators stock selection is not nearly big enough to take full advantage of the 2000's power.

I have decided to build my own selector from scratch, as that would allow me greater control of the nozzle sizes, as well as more flow than is possible with the Vindicators nozzle. The way the Vindicators nozzle is constructed, it is impossible to make the nozzle large than 1/4".

How big is the internal piping of the 2000? I am planning on using CPVC, which has an internal diameter of 1/2". Will this be a significant restriction?

More updates
The CPVC nozzle selector is complete. I screwed up the endcaps though, so they have fairly poor lamination. This selector will be featured in my upcoming homemade, with instructions.

Default Re: Nozzle Selector Mod

Since my homemade is not going to be made till spring break, I am posting the nozzle selector here.


I just plugged the end of a tee with a dowel.
I then glued 4 barrels onto an empty spool of thread. I inserted 1 barrel into a leg of the tee, and drilled a hole in the plugged side of the tee. I inserted a pencil through the spool, and epoxied it to the hole in the plug.

I don't have enough endcaps so only 1 is attached. The piped diameter is 1/2" but that can be changed by using a larger tee/pipe.

I think you can slide the nozzles onto the tee, so that you can rotate and switch them before you select.
