While I was trying to partial K mod my 2700, I thought of this mod to decrease the amount of pumps you have to do by a bit. I haven't tried it, but I'm 99.9% sure it will work, and it's really simple. I can't explain it well without pictures, so I'll get some and explain it then. Shouldn't take more than a week. :Hey, that's funny.:

Your welcome. :Hey, that's funny.:
I've almost got it done, I just need to drill a hole and it should be done. I'm guessing it will decrease the amount of required pumps by 1 or 2. It's a really simple mod, too.

Almost got this mod done now... My first attemp I broke, but none of the soaker was broken. I just needed a few adjustments. I think it will be done tonigh. This mod does not only make you pump less but it should also make your pump shaft stronger. B)

You can pretty much ignore the times on that, I rarely ever have Xfire on when I play. I should, though.

My 2700 was pretty hard to open. All the screws were rusted. :nugget: But once I got it open I could open it again in no time. B) I think I'm going to replace the screws with higher quality ones one day.

I'm also modifiying the trigger so that it doesn't get stuck, since that is a problem that showed up recently. Does anyone know a good way for me to do this? I've got several ideas, but maybe someone else's would be better.

I did. That isn't what's making it stuck. It's gets jammed on the resivior intake valve.
