The Airtech Jet Squadron one of the most overlooked Nerf blasters in the world! I really cannot understand why though. Shoots like a blastfire, and above all is a freaking jet! So a few months back I bought one of these babies from Badger, and have just now got to work on it.

First pry off the red ring on the front of the gun. Now unscrew the top half from the bottom half. Don’t bother taking out the screws that are on the sides of the gun.

This is what the internals look like it is basically a blastfire with one less barrel. The air is pumped into the bombs underneath the wings. Then when you hit the trigger it releases the air up through the wing and out of the barrel. So airflow isn’t the best. I contemplated just attaching the barrels to the tanks so the barrels would be vertical. But then I realized how helpful will your guns be in a dogfight if you’re just shooting into space?
Plug the nose cone or pump with hot glue.

Now it is onto barrels. Cut down the stock barrels enough that there is no restrictor left. Your barrels should look like this.
Posted Image
Next cut small sections of dart tag darts and push them over the original barrel stub. This makes it easier to center your barrels, and give more support. Your barrels will now look something like this.
Posted Image
Last is to glue on your choice of barrel materials. I chose 3” of petg for each barrel. Put some super glue around the dart sections. Then slide the barrels on over the dart sections. Make sure everything is straight, and then go around them with some hot glue.

Wham bam have a ham now your Airtech Jet Squadron is ready for take off!
The gun is almost dead on with my modded blastfire in the range department.

I guess it's now time to get back to studying/

I think you could probably get another 10 feet out of it with flames painted on the side.

Agreed. And with the funky jet noises he's making, he's all set!

I know somebody will ask this, so I might as well get it over with... What are the ranges?

I would love to see someone running around at a war with that in hand.

Nice mod, Dark Shrimp, and good luck on your midterms.

I guess you have some heavy duty industrial strength toilet paper holders. Do they advise you to wear eye protection when changing rolls?

Can you post a picture of you ( or other human being ) holding the gun?

Now all you need is some more of those guns and a few more pilots/clan members. 15people flying formation with those guns would be sweet.

Does posting in agreement somehow validate your standing in the community? Personally I think it just makes you look like a tool.

Yeah, it really looks unintuitive. I'm guessing the button is the trigger. Looks pretty inacurate and hard to shoot.

Anders: god, i would laugh my ass of. 15!

Does anyone know were i could buy one of these things? I can see my self going around, shooting friends and making airplane sounds.

There's a handle that clips onto the bottom, much like the new longshot front gun, with a trigger for firing semi auto. The top button is a blast button which launches all 4 planes.

The actual pump is the nose, but you must first pull back the gray "jet engine-ish" part in the back to fire. This acts the same way as the blastfire green slide.

The jet squadron is also the gun that fired the coolest darts ever.

Too bad the plane is aerodynamic at all, or you could attach motors with propellors attached and make it fly. Then you would have a fighter jet nerf gun for sweet aerial attacks. Imagine that thing swooping down on you and launching 4 darts at you at once. It would be really intense.

By the way, good job.

That, my friend, is what we train pidgons for.

What the????? I've never even heard of one of these. Looks like a great mod thought. If i ever do get ahold of one of these by chance if be sure to mod the crap out of it like you did.

At the next war, we should have a round were everyone uses these and needs to make airplane sounds while moving. Oh, and you need to take out Evil JFK style. ;)

Nice mod, I've always wondered if anybody had modded on of these. I figured it would be a piece of shit, but this is great. It's a jet, and it's a Blastfire. It doesn't get much better than this.

Nice, clean mod Dark Shrimp. When I get some money, one q. Where to buy? I guess Ill have to wait for some guy to sell one on ebay. But it would be awesome, like karpenter63 said, have it rc'd and give it one of those old world war two shark teeth-face paint jobs on it. you know what I am talkin about.

Because putting flames on the side of anything will make it go faster and farther asshat... what part don't you get?

And as Betrayal said, yeah, don't necro stuff, especially to try to make fun of me... It just fails.

You really need to pick what suites you best, and check your spelling.
