I recently purchased 3 airzone panthers and ToysRUs. Ive opened one, and modded it today. Overall, this blaster is amazing, stock and modified. I plainly love it. It is a buzzbee shell, repainted, i know due to an engraving on the side.

So far, the mods i have done are as follows:
CPVC coupler replacing stock barrel
Plugged pump
Replaced pump handle ( cpvc elbow and 4in barrel attatched )
Slight shell modification

Here are some pictures of her:

And some internal shots, mostly of the mods:

Seeing as the two guns are the same, the poll seems highly unnecessary. It is weird that buzzbee would let air-zone use their gun/shell. Unless, of course, buzzbee owns air-zone.

My understanding is that buzz bee and Air zone are the same company (and I think that there is a third company there too)

Air Zone is TRU's in-house brand; they have deals with several off-brands (Buzz Bee, Lanard, Banzai, Prime Time Toys, etc.) to put their products on the shelves under the Air Zone name.

I had no prior knowledge of really any of this. Lol, im just happy that airzone knocks off so many products like this, especially unreleased ones in the US, for being cheaper and easier to find.

Lol, i didnt paint it, this is how they come, airzome repaints them so it looks like thier own. But cool!Cant wait to see them both. And yeah, lol thanks for noticing !

No problem, hopefully the rest of the NIC can benefit from it. And cool, what mods do you plan on doing?

It's not a knock-off, it's a licensed copy.

Does it matter? It's all the same really.
