While I was poking around in the K-Mart at Astor Place in Midtown Manhattan, NY, I found this thing.

As soon as I saw it, I thought "mini Big Blast!". So I bought one.

Here's a frontal shot. I don't have stock pics but the only thing different on mine is the coupler.

You add the coupler the same way as the Big Blast.

The guts of it.
Posted Image
With pump extended all the way.

Size comparison.

Gets AT2k ranges, destroys Frost King foam, and the pump isn't even plugged yet!

P.S.They also had The Thunderbolt, which is basically a Tek 10 with lights and sounds (from what it's box said).

Awesome as it is, I have one problem, the pump strokes are too short, about an inch. :(

I find myself excited for a new release for the first time in quite some time. How much was this? I can't seem to find it online...but I'll keep looking. I can't wait to mod one of these!

Finally, the thing I've wanted, a rocketpistol.
I'll have to pick up like, 4 of these when/if I see them.
also this should go in Product awareness system, but considering that it's such a big find,it seems ok to me.

Shows a bit of promise with integration into awkwardly shaped primaries, think I might look around for one for my sawtooth. As said before, how many pumps to fill the tank?

About 19 pumps.

It was $5.99. Buzz Bee guns seem to show up on the east coast first, also, K-Mart seems to have the latest Buzz Bee guns the soonest.

It also lobs rockets 30-40 feet without the AR.

How many times would you pump it if it was plugged?

At this point, Im not really sure of a solid number, around 30 maybe but you would have to reinforce the trigger as it flexes quite a bit right now.

FYI. The pump is the exact same one on the Big Blast just shorter, a BBBB pump would be faster and serve as a stock.

Couple Questions: What size coupler is that? Does it slip on over the existing barrel?

I think that's it.

I was looking forward to this after I saw it on the back of a Buzz Bee gun box while I was at a store. I am definitely going to get one, I think I will replace the pump too. Now I just have to wait for them to reach MN.

Im using a 1/2" CPVC(copper pvc) coupler, but you need to sand/file the barrel stub quite a bit so the coupler can slide on.

I bought one Friday. cpvc couplered mine I also hollowed out the area under the barrel and cut holes so now I can store 2 extra barrels. I also pu a copper coupler in the handle and drilled the the blue cap that you removed at the bottom of the hand grip so I can store an extra barrel in the handle. The missles are not as deep hole wise as the the big blast missles abou t an inch less. So if you wan to use bg blast mssles than you may want to make different length barels. Thats all Ive done so far to mine.

Do you know if the black part of the internals is just part of the pump, or might it actually be part of the pressure chamber?


The check valve seems to be where the pump tube meets the red part, so Im sure the black part is part of the airtank, which would make the airtank as large as 2 AT2k tanks combined.

Oh yeah. This rocks. This thing IS begging for a one pump mod. The pump is so short though... But this looks like one hell of a side arm, or dual wield 'em as a primary... This little pistol has got some firepower!

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.
