Was cruising the toy section of the local Fred Meyer and came across this:

(In case picture doesn't show, here's a link: http://tinypic.com/v...pic=2w4h175&s=6 )

It's basically the size of a SSPB, with a manually-rotated 3-dart barrel and pull-back-spring-power instead of a pump. And at $3, it's slightly cheaper.

Curious if anyone else has seen one of these, maybe bought/played with one? I wanted to pick it up but the line at the counter was HUGE, couldn't afford the time. Will try again this weekend if no one's seen it before.

I have seen it before at my cousins house and we messed with it for awhile then after about 10 minutes the plunger rod snapped. The ranges were only about 20 feet max, so I suggest don't get it.

I got one at Dollar Tree. Two of the darts wouldn't even make it out the barrel. The screws were apparently stripped before I even started unscrewing them. The spring is pretty flimsy, the plastic is pathetically weak.

I'd have rather spent my dollar on rancid milk.

Well, after 3 absolutely STUNNING reviews, I think I've decided not to get one :lol: 'Specially since they're only $1 elsewhere.

Shame to hear it's so fragile, was hoping for a three-barreled last-ditch weapon that trounced the SSPB...

Don't rebarrel them. The plunger doesn't displace enough air to fill a barrel. The darts only fire because it shoots through a tube inside the dart, thus having to displace a significantly smaller amount of air to move the projectile. You might be able to get them to fire nanos but that's about it.

Oh yeah, I've seen these little guys at Fred Meyer. I thought they were pretty neat, but my hopes were crushed when it ocurred to me: "Oh yeah, it has a plunger tube the size of my index finger"
Now I wanna go buy one just for shits and giggles.
