I'm thinking of making a pneumatic assist pump, and I was wondering if the general populus here has any tips and tricks to offer.

Maybe some pics and how to's?
I was thinking sniper, but if anyone has another marker that this works on, I'm all ears.

Here are the pics of my old Brad Nestle Pneumatic Assist Sniper SHO.

Yikes!! That's a piece of work. With an auto trigger too. :)
Thanks for the pics.

Yeah, they're not as crazy as they look. Basically you just have to flip the threeway around and then you have to relocate the other pneumatics so they're out of the way. The Lpr is easy because you can just tap and thread a spot into the valve chamber and place it there, or if you're looking for simple you could even attatch it to your bottomline ASA in the gauge port (I'm pretty sure they're the same threading), you just have to deal with about a foot of hosing.

The ram would be the trickier part to relocate and would probably involve a bit of milling.

I'm not much of a pump player but the marker was just so interesting I wish I hadnt sold it :(
