I was at kmart, in the water gun area and I found this. Its a spring powered water gun, the likes I havent seen since TIG's Magnum.  It absolutely sucks as a water gun, as a nerf gun, I am not sure why Buzzbee didnt make it a foam firing blaster in the first place. Also I found it on clearance for 7.50.


Materials needed:
Cpvc Coupler
Some thick rubber safe grease.
glue of choice
and the trusty pliers!

So here it is, it has a rfr lever which might scare some of you. it also comes with a strap.

First  pry the orange cap in the front

Then open it up

Incase you are wondering it works like so: you cock the gun, which pulls water from the tank to the plunger tube (yes that means the plunger seal is a beast), then you pull the trigger which opens the gasket on the front of the PT and forces the water out in a unfocused blast. Its like a shotgun equivalent to a water gun.

Remove what you want, I removed the tubing, and removed the bar that opens the gasket. You should save it so you can hook it up to a at2k pin and integrate it. I did it on my other one.

The tube is about the same length as a NF tube, but wider

now grab your pliers and rip off the gasket, I was left with a small nub on the top of my PT.
Posted Image
also cut the area that had the tubing on it.

Fill in the hole
Posted Image
and glue on your coupler

The seal was amazing, but I added some silcone grease. The spring was also really strong so I didnt mess with it either.
Closed up with its brother.

Ranges with a 6 inch barrel are great, mid 80's.

Do you think she'll sleep with a panic switch?

Nice mod! You stated that this blaster had an amazing seal? Would it be enough for vacuum loading?

It already does depending on your dart fit.

Is there a catch already installed or do you have to fabricate one yourself? Either way, great mod.
That thing looks like it has so much potential for integrations.

Nice job. However did you widen the airflow at all? The current airflow looks pretty tiny to me and I am sure you could make it much wider. Then ranges should increase quite a bit.

I'm definitely buying one of these! Great write up. It's very easy to understand.

Where'd you find this thing? Never seen one. And it seems like its a lot better than the Rapid Fire Rifle.

The grip part of the handle looks a little large. How comfortable is it to hold and prime?

Maybe there's no Mcmaster, but you could make the first coconut airtank.

I traded for Broken SVT's Splat, and it's awesome. The grip is comfy enough (better than most Buzzbee guns) and the lever action is very smooth and easy to work, and it vacuum loads. One interesting to note, is that there are two catch notches.

That thing looks like it has so much potential for integrations.

Catch? No. It fires like a quickblast or shotblast (water guns)...
So, actually, when the trigger is pulled, a valve opens up allowing air (or water) to flow.
(Anybody correct me if I'm wrong)

Nerfgeek, there is a catch, its the white thing next to the orange trigger, its like a RFR catch but facing up.

Burning ice/water: You are retarded, I have no way of saying this in more elaborate or nice way. Making bold assumptions with nothing to back should be a crime.

I'll be trying to lengthen the plunger rod, because this is far too large to use as a pistol, but it gets the same ranges as a supasplat.

Gosh damn, sorry, I'm used to titan/shotblast valve firing system... Yes a titan and shotblast work differnetly because; one has a spring plunger thing, and the other is just pressure leaving a valve.
