The shell is very comfortable, and I think aesthetically pleasing. The accessories are detachable, and asides from the faux barrel, actually useful.
So lets crack her open. You will have to attempt to remove the orange cap at the end, I just cracked it open when I opened the whole shell.
It utilizes a unique trigger system and what appears to be a back pressure tank. The tank and bolt are all on piece. The blaster is pumped by sliding the bolt back as you load the gun, you do have to pull it back multiple times though.
This is a pic of the internals with the bolt all the way back
Here is the trigger being pulled with no tank in it. It pulls a lever to push the button on the tank.
The ARs are pretty heavy on this blaster.
Lets get rid of them! But be very careful. DO NOT DRILL THEM OUT! If it is done incorrectly it will permanently ruin your blaster. Use needle nose pliers instead. It is frustrating at first, but it is better.
^ that is a pic of what it looks like without ARs, the pics were crappy so I highlighted some things. The white dot appears to be part of a checkvalve, and the green is just flat plastic.
Also the pump desperately needs to be plugged (not shown.)
With the ARs removed and pump plugged (only pump 4 or 5 times) you will obtain ranges in the high 70s and low 80s (stock darts)
A rebarrel will probably boost it up to 100ft with stefans.
Heres the results of range testing with nerf taggers
