I just went to a yard sale today and bought one for a dollar. I can't figure out where the trigger is and what the black handle on the bottom does. It's neat that you can switch between the two barrels but I don't know how to fire it. How do you fire it?

There's no trigger. You just push the "priming handle" foward and it releases.

AHHH Sorry, he's right. The button I showed was to flip the barrels forwards... I had one of those suckers a long time back- got rid of it after I didn't see a point to keeping it.

The other little blue triange switches the barrels.

This gun sucks ,it gets less than 10ft with megas unmodded. I am going to single barrel modify it with cpvc. It should get about 50-60 ft flat because the plunger tube is as big as a nite finder.

That's not necessarly true. The spring is probally smaller if it got ten feet. Plus the mod you do could have a better effect on one gun better than the other.

I slapped the Strongarm innards into a Night Finder, and it got the same range as my modded Lnl's. The Strongarm plunger head has a great seal with the tube, pushing out a decent volume of air with little loss.

Of course you could just find a better washer and place that on the NF plunger head. It worked better for me replacing the innards since that NF was dead anyway.

If you actually want a gun strapped to your arm, certainly single barrel that strongarm. The gun goes on top of your forearm, and you grab the black handle to stablize it. There should be a strap of velcro on the back to make it more secure on your arm. Like mentioned before, the gun is fired by pusing the priming handle forward.

I'm going to have to say that (unbanded) the monster will probably get around 50'.

I hope you find a use for the thing.

Uriel did that as well. Since the SA plunger is older, it has the a rubber plunger head which has a much better seal than an O-ring. It's ranges are about 70ft. I have a SA that has a 4in. CPVC barrel and it gets 80ft. The reasons that the SA is bad stock are: the fact that the air out of the plunger goes thru about 2 in. of vinyl before it reaches the barrels, the air input is cut in half when it is split into two separate barrels, and the barrels have holes in them. What i did was take out all that stock-barrel junk, cut off the front of the shell enough to let a CPVC barrel out, put a short section of 1/2 vinyl on the front of the plunger tube, and put the CPVC barrel over the 1/2 vinyl.
