It comes as a 2-pack with 32 darts for $20 at Toys R Us
It shoots about 15 feet stock. I will post more once modded.

High hopes for these, mainly because they're so cosmetically pleasing.

Ooooh... They look similar to the Photon Burst Power Blaster. I love that blaster! The plunger looks like the same design too.

Now THERE'S a gun I wouldn't mind slamming underneath my Longshot!!! Hurry up with the mod, I want to see it its worth it!

Edit: And how big are they? Compared to lets say a Maverick. Maybe a picture?

Looks like a pistol size FireFly. Can't wait to see the ranges once modded.

That plunger tube looks tiny.. I'd expect 40 or 50 feet out of this with standard mods. Maybe more with a beefy spring replacement/addition. It looks like an awesome gun for all those Steampunk and LARPers out there.

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.

I have never seen these on the shelves. Do they have good potential?

The guts look like a Tek 6. I like the looks of this one tho. It also appears that if can fare as a rather nice side arm that's more appealing than a few of the others (in my opinion).

I love the look of these guns so much. I just wish there was a Toys R Us somewhere nearby, ours closed for a Best Buy quite some time ago.

Unfortunately they look just like the innards of a DTG. This is very dissapointing. I have spent a long ass time doing everything possible to my DTG and I can barely squeeze 50-60 out of it, depressing.

I, too "have recon," as they say. I get him in old country. Then I realize he sucks like bog. So I trade him for potato.

They are very cool looking but seem a bit bulky. How comfy are they?

I had the same problem with my PBPB. The edges on the side kept digging in my hands. Hopefully BuzzBee fixed that in these.

I've been meaning to buy a new LS, since I've been unable to acquire brass for my gutted one, and this just gave me reason to buy a new LS and these things, if not to just make something sexy. It would look so much more... professional, with the squareness if this gun matching that of the Longshot. Oooh, I'm getting all giddy thinking about it!

EDIT:

Just picked mine up, can't wait for jerm's review/write up, but if I can find my screwdriver that isn't sitting in my dorm, I'll open em up.

On a quick inspection, I've noticed that the darts are absolutely horrible, and switching to shortened NERF brand stock darts increases the range by about 5'. A grand old 20'. So I looked down the barrels, because I noticed, THOSE PEGS ARE HEUG. It isn't a standard air restrictor set up, A'la the Maverick. The back of the barrel is a solid piece of plastic, with small slits in the pegs themselves, which is where the air escapes to launch the dart... No wonder the range is horrible. Hopefully a nice mod and a barrel replacement of sorts will get these up to some decent ranges.

I get all giddy when I see VACC browsing a stupid topic. I just know someone is going to get banned.
