They look really....strange.... i don't know how you would mod the second one but the first one you might be able to do something with it. What do you guys think?

I remember that the first one was brought up before, but someone (I believe slug) pointed out that it's way too expensive for a single shot blaster with no reptation.

The second one seems new, but I don't think it'll come to much- though it does use darts.

The first crossbow thing looks really cool. I'd buy one of them if the price was less.

The second one looks like it shoots those rubber BB's, or something like that.

They both fire darts. You should've actually read the description.

Teach your children both firearm safety and marksmanship with this fun shooting toy. This Shotgun functions like the real thing and comes with six foam projectiles (three hook-and-loop tipped, three suction-tipped) and a foam target.

The Crossbow thing looks like it fires a dart almost identical to a streamline. The dart in the "barrel" of the crossbow looks like a streamline, but wider. If you replaced the string with a bungee cord, and made a real pvc barrel, that thing might have some potential. And it looks like it has a nice feel to it, like the Xbow. Although the shotgun thing, the overpriced single shot, unless it gets insane power (I doubt that), then it is by no means worth 40$.

It's not like that. I put lube on it and its the same. Its just stuck. And when I cock it back it goes farther back then usual. Also I push as hard as I can and it wont go back in. I've tried the methods and they wont work. Also pics are up.

But did you attempt at all to mod it?
Remember the flaws of the stock Doomsayer?

The crossbow looks cool, and would be nice to integrate something into. I wouldn't pay $30 for an integration frame, though. Maybe if I could find it on eBay for cheaper.

I've heard the crossbow is surprisingly effective, but I would never buy it because there's not way to improve it's performance or repair it if it breaks.

The little critters of nature, they don't know that they're ugly. That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumble bee. I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me. Why didn't you believe me?

I am a little pissed it is still a computer generated image on the website.
I just ordered one. I should be seeing it in a couple weeks. I will post photos of it and a complete review.

I don't get my kicks out of you,
I don't feel the way I used to do.
I know its bad,
After what we had,
But Iím just not the angel you knew.

Thanks FA24 for biting the foam bullet for us. Will be quite interesting what your verdict will be on it. :D I'm hoping that because it's $40 that it's at least half way decent.
