I recently picked up a 4B from target to fiddle around with, and after plugging the pump and cutting the barrel down, i still wasn't getting more than 50 feet. I used both grey stefs and the original rockets and they were both averaging 40 feet. I checked the box again, and I noticed the copyright date was 2009 on this gun, plus it is green and blue. I'm just asking if anyone knows of a change made in the manufacturing of the gun that makes it weaker. I have searched but to no avail.

I'm trying to post pics, tell me if they work.

I'm trying not to get added that hilarious quote to my signature, while playing with my butthole....
Have you tried like... filling the air tank ALOT? and check for any random leaks in odd areas.

Same thing here. Its the ugly short one right? Well you have to pump it like VIGOROUSLY! Like, force it in! I almost returned it, but it will get easier and easier.

Try clicking the picture of tree to insert pictures, then put the links in the box that pops up. That will make them appear directly on screen. Can you take pictures of the internals? Maybe next to 2008 edition if you can too.
Edit: also try a longer, looser barrel.

I have one of these, and I know it shoots >75 with a too-tight barrel.

How does the barrel on the gun right now fit your darts? That may be the problem. Also, how many pumps are you giving it?

Thanks for the tips for pics, just to make sure, what color is a 2008 4B? I'm using the stock barrel currently, the 5 minute mod where you just cut off the barrel past the two holes on the side. That mod allows the air to be more direct. I've done the same mod before to a black/yellow 4B, before rebarreling, and got 60' with the rocket, and 70' with a stefan.

The only colors I've seen are the Black/Yellow and Blue/Green. I got both mine with the copyright 2004. THey both work fine. I'm not sure if they even have a 2008 edition.

Either way, do you know where you can find any of them any more? I'd be willing to buy the stock or modded. I do want to take a look at each one's internals, like someone suggested. Pm me if you have one to sell.

Sorry for the semi-necro, but I was hoping to discuss this also and didn't want to make a new topic.
I've noticed this also, but my main problems have been with the pump. In my experience, the pump on the 2009 BBBB actually requires modification to be at all efficient. I haven't modded mine yet (except the pump), so I'm waiting to see. Just from putting my hand on the barrel, it seems a little bit weak.

May I ask how you modded said pump?

Yea, I've noticed that the pump seems rather flimsy, mine shakes side to side when I pump it. I'm not sure if that's normal, but I'm pretty sure my Texas friend's did not do that when I pumped it. He had a black/yellow one. I would ask him, but he lives in Texas, and I don't have his phone number anymore. Also, when plugging the pump, do I just put a dot of hotglue on the hole in the middle of the pump? I did this, and the 4B still makes the air-release hissing noise. any help would be nice.

One last thing, whenever I reply to something in my thread does it bump it? I just don't want to get banned for the 3-bump rule. Thanks.

the hissing sound is definitely an air leak.

here's what to do to check for leaks:

1: take out the internals (duh)
2. fill a spray bottle with soapy water
3. pump the tank, then spray it with the soapy water.
4. the water+soap will bubble wherever there's an air leak.
5. apply hotglue/etape/whatever to the leaking spot.


hopefully you can find the leaks. if the new model is this leaky, i probably won't buy it.

Thanks, I've also noticed that on the stock barrel, the holes in the side are much smaller than previous models.

actually, i don't remember the original model having holes in the sides of the barrel. i just remember a flimsy little cap on the end of the stock barrel to keep kids from using other darts with it.
