First off, you're a liar. The max shot cocking mechanism is WAY less durable than the blast bazooka's pump system. Our nerf group owns three max shots and one blast bazooka. Two max shots have cracked plunger tubes, and one's catch mechanism was destroyed BEFORE the gun was ever modified. The Lanard Blast Bazooka is very well designed, the pump tube is very strong, and since there is no beast sized spring forcing one peice of plastic into another there is less impact and wear on the internals of the blast bazooka.
the cocking mechinism is way more durable than the blast bazooka's pumping mechinism. Don't get the blast bazooka. Get a max shot instead!
By the way, I have the same barrel on both guns and the max shot owns the hell out of the blast bazooka on range.
About your barrels: Max shots are spring powered and blast bazookas are air powered. Having the same barrel is very stupid. You should telescope the max shot and just put a plain barrel on the Blast Bazooka. Also, it is unfair to say the max shot is better than the blast bazooka when you have only tried one barrel on the blast bazooka. Try different lengths, materials and darts and then you can make a proper decision.
One last thing, the reload time on both guns should be about the same. With the max shot, the shooter must twist the dart into the smaller barrel, then place the larger barrel over top that. The blast bazooka is just a simple pull out, place in, and put back.
