You know that wall of junk toys when you first go in Toys R' Us? That's where I got this for $2.

The box says it can shoot 25ft., but I have made it to shoot 55 ft. flat. with stefans.
It is even easier to mod than the Secret Shot Pocket Blaster because 1/2" cpvc fits right down the stock barrel.
You only need a few things to do this:

-mini flat head screwdriver
-small thin pliers
-hot glue gun
-a small piece of cpvc 1/2"
-hacksaw

There is no need to open the casing. I opened it at first because I had hoped there would be a tube system inside I wanted to use for another mod. Unfortunately there is not, and this is as far as you can take things apart before breaking the gun.

Using a flat head screwdriver, pry off the front yellow cap on the barrel end. Then using some thin pliers, grab the post inside and twist it out. After that stick the pliers way down the barrel and grab hold of the x shaped restrictor and twist that out. The restrictor is connected to it's own cylinder.

Take a hacksaw and cut a section of cpvc, mine is 2 and 3/4" long. Put a ring of hot glue around one end and quickly shove it down the barrel before the glue takes hold.

flat range test:

6 pumps- 45ft.
7 pumps- 50ft.
8 pumps- 55ft.

The gun has no air pressure release and the box only says do not overpump, so 8 or 9 pumps felt like the limit to me.

Thats the way I do it. Use a rag with some light fast rubbing.

Actually, no. Standard micro size.

I'm trying this mod, I bought one of these as a KB Toys for the low low price of $.99! :blush: Mine leaks though at the trigger/button. :(

I just might have to get some of these sometime. My SSPB's all suck. I've done the mods and the ranges aren't nearly what other people were getting.

Good find! Cheap and effective!
