Here is my write up for this knock off Tech target I found for a dollar at Target.

Posted Image

Posted Image


Materials needed:

 Knock off Tech Target
 17/32 Brass
 Hot glue and hot glue gun
 Duct tape
 Screwdriver
 Silicon or lube of choice
 Rubber bands


First unscrew the case apart.

Posted Image

Next take out the plunger assembly, rip off the plunger from the yellow part and lube the plunger tube.

Posted Image

Next take off the yellow AR from the front of the plunger tube.

Posted Image

Then hot glue a two and one half-inch piece of 17/32 Brass to the plunger tube.

Posted Image

After that glue the plunger assembly back together and add duct tape.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Then screw the case back together and hot glue around the barrel.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Now slap some rubber bands on it and your good to go.

Wow, on the back of the box, it is just the old color scheme TTG, but without the nerf logo. What a creative company! <_< But the spring in it looks a little weaker. Do the ranges suffer at all?
EDIT: Sorry, I'll check tomorow

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.

in what section did you find this. Because all I see at target is the regular Nerf stuff that I normally see.

I thought for sure that this was going to be the mini tech target knock off that Zudikas found at a Walgreen's. I'll have to get a picture of that thing compared to another gun. I think that both the one Zudikas and the one you found both use those strange yellow darts when stock.

So, how would you rate the overall quality of this gun? Does it have cheap, flimsy plastic, a weak spring? Would you recommend it? (sorry to fling so many questions at you)

The spring does look weaker then the original, but then again that could just be me. I got a question:
Is the plunger head have an O-ring or a piece of rubber to push the air?

Interesting. How does the gun feel compared to a normal TTG? If it's just a different color plastic, that's pretty exciting and I'll be stocking up on them.

Nice job.

I just bought four of these a couple days ago... haven't done much to them yet, but yes, they're almost spot on knock-offs of TTGs, the triggers and external shells are almost identical. I doubt they quite have the durability and power of a real ttg, but they're a hell of a lot better than your average crappy $2.50 gun. They're in the dollar section in the front of the store, there's also a knock-off of the Buzz Bee Tec 4 or whatever they called it.

Nice little mod there.

Meh! The instructions on the back of the box don't make any sense!

Or how about "Load 1 or 2 Foam Darts onto launcing tube(S)." I guess when you sell stuff for a buck, you can't afford a proofreader - or a brain!

Still, if these things have similar potential to a real TTG, that is one cheap way to get a decent gun.

It's answer time!

I did a range test today. Heavily banded, with stock taggers this gun gets flat ranges around 70 feet.

To Captain: This gun is lighter than a cut down NF, cheap, easy to mod, and gets great ranges. I would highly recommend it.

To Dayko: This gun has a piece of rubber. See picture 4.

To Jedijoe9: This gun is a lot lighter than a TTG but besides that it feels the same.

This is gonna seem stupid but i can't tell from the pictures. Do you think a maverick spring or a nitefinder spring would fit on the plunger?
