Okay, so I picked up a pair of these at a Goodwill this morning. They were in great shape, and I could tell they were powered off an air tank. But I have no idea what they are and I've never seen them before in my life. I got home and Googled everything that's printed on the gun with no luck at all. They're made by a company called Yes! Entertainment Corporation. I did a little research on them and found that they were only in business from 1992 to 1998, and they were pretty low key. They shut their doors in 98' and this gun was made in 97'. So I have a feeling that there are not very many of these guns out there. And I have two!

It appears to fire some sort of ball, maybe about the size of a ping-pong ball. It operates by loading a ball into the 2-round pivoting cylinder, then you crank the ratchet on top which drives a rod forward pushing the ball into the barrel. For the next shot, you just push the cylinder over and do it again. Pretty neat.

But the neatest part it how it pumps! The handle comes out the back with a pretty long draw, and you push it forward. The trigger is super beefy too!

I opened it up to see whats inside, and its pretty simple. It looks like the air tank is about the size of a mega missile tank, probably bigger. But the hole where the air come out is nearly 1/2 an inch in diameter!!! Its the largest hole in any air tank I've seen! With a pump as long and skinny as this one with a hole that large, I imagine this gun could get scary ranges with an RSCB or a hopper. Combined with its unique pump location, it could fire off round pretty fast too!

Now my question is, because to my knowledge, this gun is so rare, is it worth anything? I would hate to go ahead and modify one or both of these to find out that they're the last of their kind. Has anyone seen these before? Does anyone know if they're collectible? If not, they're going to make awesome primaries! And if any of you are interested in these before I go and mod them, just PM me, this isn't the sales thread.

I'm pretty sure it is related to this one. They are pretty neat:

Supposedly Makeitgo has something similar.

It's called "The Force". It fired these spongey balls, but I don't know anything more about it. I remember reading about them more often when I first got into Nerf about 8 years ago, but even then they were rare.

There's a video of the shells loading there too. First link searching for "raw the force nerf" (no quotes)
It's basically a big blast, with possibly an even larger tank.

Also there's a pic of the box here: http://tman89544.tripod.com/id22.html

Thanks for your help guys! Between the 2 guns, I have 3 of the shells, so I bet that raises any resale value a bit. Does anyone have a ballpark of what these things are worth?

Personally, I'd modify the shells so that they would make this thing a shotgun. That could be one of the coolest shotguns ever.

Edit: Actually, probably not, I think the ball is pushed into the barrel from the shell, the shells don't move. I THINK that's how it works.

Banshee, would you mind posting up a couple pictures of the shells? I am rather curious and would like to see how they are constructed.

Heres how I sum it up, you got a Force made by Yes Entertainment. That gun is really rare! The gun shoots foam balls stuffed into shells and the flywheel pushes them out. The balls expand as they hover through the air. Nice gun you got there by the way. Only seen one in real life at a thift shop.
