I bought a Nerf Hornet from one of the guys at Massacre, and to my chagrin it's not doing so hot.

My diagnoses:

One of the blast chambers/quick exhaust valves is leaking. This keeps the internal pressure of the whole gun low, so that it can fire, but doesn't get much range. If I can't fix the valveon the bad blast chamber (doubt it), is my only option to amputate/plug the faulty blast chamber?

I'm not including pics just because there's nothing visibly wrong with it, I'm just looking for a second opinion.

Sadly, this is a problem that happens with most hornets. I bought two Hulk Titan/Hornet Packs and one of the hornets had this problem out of the box. The only -temporary- fix I've come up with is to replace the barrels with something that tight fits your stefans, then ramrod them down to the bottom. The chamber will only be able to leak so much, and firing will still release a mild amount of air pressure to pop the dart out...

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

Well, maybe I'll just tear the thing apart and try a FANG style blaster using stock parts. Thanks for the input.

By the by, does anyone have a ballpark pressure rating for the Hornet blast chambers?
