Sorry about the L'N'L crack, but I'm really excited about this gun. Alright, here it is!

Kind of ugly, right? Also, the five darts that it came with were a) ugly and -_- different sizes. Happily, it is a spring gun (you pull the maroon knob on the back) and one or two good darts made this gun shoot about 50 feet. Wow. For one dollar, sure.

That's what I did to 'em. They get 70-80ft this way. They're a dream to mod, too.

When I looked inside, I saw a workhorse, much akin to the Xbow. One, GIGANTIC air chamber filled the shell, with a two-piece trigger assembly. What I did, with all the similarities, was to make a three-piece, semi-telescoping barrel assembly, then shove it in, and tape it up. This is the assembly:

Outside
3" piece of 5/8" ID K&S brass
4" piece of 9/16"
3" piece of 17/32"
Inside

The 5/8 and 9/16 are flush, and the 17/32 protrudes from the 9/16 by about one half inch. As I said, I simply shoved this in (It sticks, as the original barrel telescopes a bit anyways) then taped it up just to be sure. Finally, I added a First Shot ammo holder on each of the original dart holders.

If it actualy gets 70-80 ft... that is one sick discovery. Good job on the mod, man. I don't think they will ever replace the Lock N' Load, but they look like pretty good blasters as side arms... I mean, you could go completely Matrix with two of those.

Any chance you could give us the name of the company that makes them?

Alright, I dug the packaging out of the trash. It's a Chinese company called Qiang Xiang. The actual gun is called a "Mini Bullet Toys Gun." <-- sounds roughly translated

Yes, it does get those ranges, believe it or not. Also, I find it to be more comfortable than the LNL or TTG. <-- open to discussion, obviously

if 70-80 feet is for real, and all you did was push in a barrel, go buy about 50 of them, and we can all have you send us them. How big is it compared to a LnL?

Yes, I want one. You could make some money off of this, my friend. Sounds really cool, and just the thought of how easy it is to mod makes my day.

Give it a flat black paintjob and I think it would look pretty keen.

So, "The Dollar Store", or "Dollar Tree", or "Big Dollar"... What was the exact name of the store that had them?

Wow! Janga really got it--one of them is drying right now, I just painted it!

Anyways, it was called "A Dollar," and I think it may be a local business. Who knows. Yes, 70-80 is for real. I think they may be smaller than a LNL (minus the cocking piece). It is about 9-10" in length, and about 4-5" in height. It's about 1" wide.

P.S. As soon as I take another trip there, I'll start a topic to sell them.

There are many cheap guns that are good out there but some of them break real easy. That blaster that you have looks durable from the plastic and looks pretty good for $1.
I like experimenting on these guns it fun and if you stuff up the mod or what ever your doing just throw it away it's only a few bucks.
