A quick size comparison
Inside, the spring is not bad but the plunger tube is small and the hole where the air releases is small
The spring and there is a oring plus a rubber head
There is rubber on the tip of the plunger tube
You don't want to take this part apart, the metal post on the left side of the black thing with the green ring slides in and out so its impossible to push back into the orange turret(I finally found a way to get it back together)
I drilled out the pegs and added a spacer behind the spring to help compress it more.
Thats it for now I will finish modding it later and let yall know about ranges

So it's a FF with a better seal?
Sort of, it is like all other spring-powered Buzz Bee blasters (with the RFR and the DS as the only exceptions). It uses the universal size plunger setup, with, for note, has a plunger tube that is slightly smaller than that of a Firefly, and yes, has a better seal. The good advantage of this universal plunger setup compared to that of several Nerf spring-powered blasters (Maverick, Scout, Longshot Frontgun, CrossFire, and Eliminator) is that it has a regular-style piston plunger which has a good plunger-to-turret seal, as well as a decently heavy-gauge spring (heavier than all the aforementioned Nerf blasters) whereas Nerf skimps out on many of the aforementioned pistols with crappy, inefficient reverse-plungers, usually lighter-gauge, weaker springs, and, in the case of the Maverick, a non-existent plunger-to-turret seal. In fact, the Tek 6 when modified to comparable level with the Maverick, outranges the Maverick.
This looks like a repackaged Tek Ten with a different shell and added useless crap, it looks a bit cheesier, but more comfortable.
