Today I will be showing you my AT3K overhaul. It took me a while to do this because I needed all of the parts and some things broke but here it is!

Ok so I found this White/Orange Super Soaker Max-D 5000 @ goodwill yesterday and I looked it up and the more common orange and green ones sell for over $30 (correct me if I am wrong). Ok so when I was looking it up I found that this was not an actual color scheme used in the Max-D first release or any of its rereleases. I need your guys help to find out if this thing is 1. incredibly rare, 2. how much it is worth?, and 3. who will buy it? I have not found any sources talking about a white/orange one nor have I found any pictures. If you could post the images on your blogs to see if you can find out the answers to my 3 questions, that would be great. Thanks everyone.
Label: it says Larami 2001 and Hasbro 2002
It has a U.S. patent number of: No. 6,631,830
It was made in China
(I covered it in pencil so you could read it, it erased all fine with no marks)
Side view of blaster
(it only has one sticker on this side and no signs of stickers on the tank)
Ok Guys I will give you the bad news first. I am giving up modding. I am going to finish my bow'n'mallow and I will paint my BBB but other than that I am done. I just don't have the time for it nor the interest. My favorite part was the thrifting, anyways. I never really cared for the modding as Drev can tell you. Even if you look back to my first post it said i would be doing a lot of paint jobs and Drev would be doing the modding. The Good News is I will still be thrifting and looking for Vintage Blasters. I am going to find the vintage blasters, and Drev and I will sell them thru his Ebay account. I am not giving up on Nerf and certainly not giving up on this blog. I will have those two posts and maybe I will post the panther mod that I did. But other than that my upcoming posts will be about vintage blasters I find. Hope you guys understand and will appreciate my "treasure hunts" thanks for your support of my mods and I hope you buy the blasters I sell on Ebay!!
p.s. sorry for the lengthy post.

I used a cpvc tee instead of a keyring for this one. The reason for the weird sharpie marks is because I already had some sharpie marks on there from measuring. I know some people might not like it but I know my friend will. I have not tested the ranges yet but I am guessing that they are better than my other snap pistols. This is because it has completely perfect seal and because the K26 is longer. I am really excited to give this to him.

Hi guys, today I have a shotgun grip raider. This was inspired by Darthrambo's post on Nerf Mods and Reviews from a few months ago. For those of you who don't know, this is made from a Buzz Bee Double Shot. Mine is not of the same quality because it is hot glued on but it is still very stable and very nice. I will be spray painting it once it warms up outside. This is a great mod to do and I recommend that you do it.
Update: That my posts have been sparse recently. This is because I had foot surgery and I have just started up modding in the past week or two. I actually have a lot to post but I haven't gotten around to it. My AT3K is having some problems with the hornet pump I put on it but other than that it is going well.

First off, I want to say sorry for my lack of posts. As some of you may know, I got foot surgery and I couldn't do any nerf projects. That aside these are my Air Tech 3000's or AT3K's like in the title.
They both function perfectly and I plan on modifying one of them. If you can't see because of the bad lighting, one is silver and one is blue. I will probably be modifying the blue one. Stay tuned for an AT3K mod!
