Nozzle Mods

Ah nozzle mods, for when the size of your nozzle just isn’t big enough.  There are certain ways to get a nozzle on your blaster to a size to your liking.  I’ll go through the two main ways.

1 – Nozzle Drilling/Enlargening

Tools/items needed:

-Round & flat files

This is the easier method, where if you just want to enlarge the nozzle you have as it is without adding anything else, this is what you do.

The blaster we will be doing this on is the Super Shooter CPS 2000 (an accurate CPS 1000 clone/fake), now that it has had a light K Modification done on it, a larger nozzle despite decreasing shot time, will let the newly found improved power rock a lot more!


The little piece that sticks out around the nozzle, yeah, that is getting sawed off.


And the aftermath of the finished job of sawing, yes, messy.


You then with some flat files and sandpaper need to carefully need to smoothen things off.   File off the lumps of plastic that the saw didn’t take out, in which afterwards you then sand it down and smoothen, it should look something like this.


Now you can start on making the nozzle larger.  Using certain sizes of round files up to however large you want to make the nozzle, insert them through and twist them round until you get to your preferred size.  I made mine to about 10x in size.  Also, using a drill on this occasion would have been risky and awkward given you don’t really have anything to accurately rest the blaster on.  The last thing you want is a messed up nozzle drill that makes the stream fire off too much to the left or right, or just really messy.



The nozzle now finally needs to be smoothened out so it fires a straight focused and punchy stream.  I got some sandpaper and carefully wrapped it into a circular shape enough to fit through the nozzle, and then turned it a few times in and out to get rid of any burring or parts that weren’t smooth.  Also wrapping around a round file and doing it works too and if anything is more accurate and stable.


That is it really for the more simple way of doing it, the finished product worked well.


2 – Changeable Nozzles

Tools/item needed:

-3/4" male adaptor (3/4" female end to 3/4" male threaded end)
-3/4" threaded endcap(s)
-Electrical tape
-O rings

This is the more involved option, however it does allow you more flexibility and a better stream, and it is not actually too hard to do and doesn’t take long.

First you need to saw off the front part where the nozzle hole is until you reveal a bare holed full size nozzle.  You don’t need to saw very far back, here is a picture to show.  This again is what it would be like on the Super Shooter CPS 2000, however I am not going to be doing the mod, I can still show how you would do it.


With the piece off chances are it’ll be messy with some uneven lumps, so once again you the file and sandpaper until things are smooth.

You will need this 3/4" male adaptor soon; this is going to be the basis of our new interchangeable nozzle.


Now you will need the electrical tape, wrap it around the end of the nozzle until there is enough there for the adaptor to snugly fit over, we don’t want it so loose that the blaster is gonna fire the nozzle itself off, that would be as bad as spontaneously combusting.


Before you fit the adaptor over, to prevent any water leakage along with the snug electrical tape, put an o ring in the adaptor.  The adaptor needs to be tight when it goes on so you may want to put a few more o rings in so that they won’t be loose inside.


Then fit over the adaptor so it goes on tight enough to the point where it can take the pressure of the water coming out.


Also, to prevent leaking when firing, put an o ring around the outside of the threaded part.  This means that when you screw your new nozzle on, it will push tight against the o ring which creates a seal so no water gets out when firing.


Finally, all you need now is whatever nozzle size you desire.  Get a 3/4" threaded endcap or a few of them, and preferably use a bench drill to drill in whatever size or sizes you desire, then it is just a case of screwing the endcap on the end of the adaptor, and watching the result.  The best part is that if you get bored with one size and fancy another then you just unscrew it and get another endcap to drill a new size on.
