Just buy a Sentinel. Modern performance for $17 CAD. Check walmart, it's the only place I've seen them in Canada.

Dude.  Did you miss everything I just said about being told to buy new stuff and how I can't afford to go out and buy stuff?

No, I didn't. There is no advice that we can give you that will align with what you want. The three blasters you bought are all incapable of being upgraded to a sufficient standard. The only solution is buying something else, and I gave you the absolute cheapest option. If you have to save up for a while or sell some stuff, then that's what you've got to do.

Well, the recon can use streamlines and the vulcan seems to be able to handle it with the way it is set up.  The only time it jammed was when I put a bent dart in it.

At the risk of repeated what has already been said (if so, my repetition will emphasize its importance):

 

The Recon is pretty much limited to using streamlines, with the streamlines in good condition.

 

The Vulcan should be able to run stock Nerf suction darts, but originally came with whistler darts (at least the ones I've encountered). I think the Vulcan chain can use regular streamlines, but I'm not sure.

 

The most fickle blaster of all that you have is the Speedload 6. You must use at least some dart tag darts that look like this. Based on my person experience and reviews, you should only use dart tag darts, but you can get away with alternating dart tag darts with other types (I forget which type; they were streamlines or whistler). However, you have to use at least some dart tag darts because of the orientation of the darts within the internal magazine and the low-friction property the velcro "X" provides on the tip of the dart tag dart. If you use too many streamlines or whistler darts in the Speedload 6 or other internal magazine fed Nerf dart tag blasters, you risk jams when the tip of the darts stick to the inside wall of the magazine.

 

And +1 on what sublimedom777 said in post #20.

I think I might try to just sell the speedload 6 to someone and get something out of it.  I enjoy the feel of it, but if I can't get any use out of it then I don't know.  I was messing around with my vulcan and yeah, streamlines work just fine with it.  At least those weird knockoffs that are streamline in shape work fine.  I have a few whistler but they are in terrible condition.

mhmm
I'm asian, and I grew up in a similar household. No waste. I'm 15 with no income and save up for most of my stuff, or hustle and trade. This hobby is pretty cheap, trust me. 

If you want to use whistlers or dart tag darts and want to try and find darts for it, be my guest but you will spend about as much as you did on the blaster itself for a few darts. We gave legitimate advice, but let me put it like this. You want to spend more money on darts to make that blaster work than let it go and get one that's cross compatible with modern cheap stuff? (eBay, 10$ for 50, Amazon, 50$ for 36) Be my guest. If you want it to be compatible with modern stuff, just rack it back and than front load it through the barrel. That's really all the advice I have left. Again, 3.10 for 100 USC darts, you can get blasters that all work with those cheap darts. I get it, you're poor too. I don't think you even clicked any of the fucking links, Dartzone has combo packs for less than 20. 

For space, I'm sure your house is not as packed as mine. I live in NYC, with like 30+ blasters in my house and gear. Blasters aren't that big, or modern ones. They can fit under your bed flat, in the back of your closet, behind a shelf or in a cabinet.

I bought the USC darts.  I plan on unloading the speedload 6 on someone.  I doubt I will buy more guns at the moment.  You also can't really load in the barrel in that thing as when you rack it back, a little bit of plastic moves to block the barrel.  But hey, it's fine.  I will just find someone to load it off on.  As I figure it now, I paid $20 canadianfor the vulcan and got the other two as a bonus.  By the way, here is something ridiculous.  https://www.amazon.c...r/dp/B003H9MTJ6

 

I am actually having a lot of fun with the vulcan, and that's really what it is about.  Having fun.

Didn't I say this earlier?

 

I've used streamlines in a speedload 6. They worked ok-ish.

 

Some may jam. Some may not. USCs might work, I don't know. The blaster isn't great, but if you like it, keep it. I have one and I intend to keep it because it's fun, even if it isn't anywhere near as competitive as any other blaster I own.

I'd take a jolt over the speedloader because it just seems to work better.

At the gorcery store, I found some collared suction darts.  Air Warriors Refill pack.  24 pack.  Says they are from BuzzBeeToys.  They are working great in the speedload 6.  I also picked up a 14 pack of Air Warriors Ultra Tek refill pack.  Streamlined, gray with green cups.  The collared ones cost me about $20 for 104 darts total.

those are decent but
you could've got 620 USC darts for that amount

 

glad you got something for your speedload 6. Have fun

I DID get USC darts.  They are coming in the mail.  This was to just try out these off brand.

 

Update:  Not a bump just an update.  The Recon CS-6 is actually tearing the gray and green buzzbee darts.
