It's probably not too shabby, but if you're looking for a nice air primary I would urge you to look for Lanard's Blast Bazooka, available at Walmart and Toys 'R Us.

Meanwhile, if you're curious about this eBay auction, I intend to win that and see if I can repair it. But for all we know, not only the pump doesn't work, but the tank is busted too.

Moosenukem,

You are extremely lucky that I was able to catch your post... Well, you might not think of it that way, but to the extent of my knowledge, I am one of two (might be wrong) active Nerfers at this moment who possesses an SM500... As a matter of fact, my SM500 was the first Nerf gun that I ever recieved; it paved the way for my ...shall I say growth in the Nerf field.

The SM500 mod is a simple one; just do the same you would do to any other gun. There is, however, a red ring, just like on the other Supermaxx guns that you will need to take off; it's located [conviently] next to the pump. Use a hacksaw and a flat screwdriver here; don't damage anything else or you're screwed.

After taking it off, take out the pump and get a hot glue gun. Put a droplet of glue in the little hole you see at the end of the pump and make sure it won't come out. There you go; let it dry and cool, put it back in, somehow attach the ring back.

Next for the barrel... Saw the barrel off 2-3 inches from where it protrudes from the body of the gun. Be sure that you don't get any fragments of plastic in there. Wrap a small layer of duct tape around a stick of PVC and push it in; making sure it's nice and tight.

There you go, a new modified SM500... Great gun, but loud as heck. I've been able to get 80' angled with it, really nice pistol and/or sidearm.

Peace,
~Mystic~

Again, there are other guns available if all you're looking for is this type of range. I'm confident I could get 80' angled with my modified $6 Nite Finder from Target. Meanwhile, I am interested in the SM500 because I am a collector, and I wouldn't mind refurbishing it. :)

The Nite Finder is a pistol?

Nope, it's not. It's a handgun. I like to lie!

In any case, with the SM500 I ended up paying $16 inc. shipping, thanks to AlextheBastard's attempts to jack up the price on me. Ha ha, but we sorted that out. *shakes his fist* Now I'm just hoping that it's salvageable.
