JT ER-2 Constant Air Conversion!

Yep, folks, you read it right, I have converted my ER-2 to constant air. My second true "Airsmithing" project, I think you'll enjoy it. Here's a video, then on to technical details.


So, basically it's a stock ER-2 running off of a remote. Sorry, I don't have pictures at the moment (my camera is not working, only my camcorder) but basically I took a drillpress to the valve and bored it out for 5/16" (1/8" NPT threads) and basically screwed a straight macroline fitting into it and ran a short lead line down through the space inside the grip. I'll have to make a quick SolidWorks e-drawing for y'all...it'll make more sense. Anyways, it's probably been done, but I've not seen anyone publicize it, so here it is. Enjoy,
Noah

Very nice! Planning on doing this to my Eraser soon. Glad to see more "pistol" Markers getting attention too!

I did the same thing to mine, except I put a quick disconnect fitting and clipped my remote onto that. Fun little gun, just too plastic-y for me

Oh, about a couple hours of thinking and tinkering. The actual process took twenty minutes.

Junits, how did you do yours? I need to make a drawing or something of it...

h23vtec, yeah, it is a little loud, but the recoil is much reduced from when it was running 12ies. The added mass of the remote, I guess.

I did what you did, where I drilled and tapped a hole where the piercing device used to be. HOWEVER, if I were to do it again, I would put the hole in the side of the valve and leave a 12g in the gun to seal up. That way it would be easier to disconnect the remote

Well, today was the first field trial of it. Extremely accurate, I think I hit everyone where I was aiming (including five or six headshots...) and put perhaps 200 rounds through the gun all day. Through bunker dives, getting shot, and chopping (failed autotrigger stream) the marker held up. Yep. That's what's up! I wish I had a GoPro or a Contour. I could've taken some sick video. Anyways, Junits, I think that would've been wise for me to do...the problem is the location of the valve. It's always harder to tap and drill round things...

My ER2 had a feedneck mod that worked pretty well.




It held my hopper VERY well with paint, basically, I used a JT 45 degree feedneck, cut one of the ten round tubes to use as a sleeve, then epoxied it all in place (The electrical tape was because it was all ugly after sanding it down and I hadn't painted it yet). I had started modifying the barrel for Freak inserts and the rear metal block cracked when I was drilling it out.

That's pretty sweet, my friend! How did you get the barrel on there? I need to do something similar...

Oh, nice! I think I'll pare mine down so it'll just accept a standard elbow. I'll put a 100-rounder on there and make it all nice and high-cap. Hmm, you cracked your valve...I almost had that problem, but I turned the mill way down (much more precise than a drillpress) so that it wouldn't crack. The tapping worried me, I was afraid I was gonna kill it...

^ I had a barrel on mine too, I took a spyder barrel and put a couple rounds of electrical tape on it so the friction of the two halve of the case held it in. Works pretty well, minus the rollouts.

Cool, y'all! I think I may try to modify the existing barrel back to be Spyder threaded...that way I can put on all my aftermarket stuff and still have a detent.
