I'm playing assassins with some of my friends and need a good pistol. I need something light and small, but something that can fire pretty far, modded or not. What should I get?

Splitfire is the obvious choice there. Two quick shots, but is hard to find.

Other than that, I'd go with a Nite Finder simply because they are everywhere and easily modded.

How big is the Splitfire? Could I fit it in my pocket? I've seen pics, and the pump handle looks like it makes it wide.

They're about two inches at the widest point.

Do you need this for anytime, anywhere action? If so I'd definitely go with the nite finder because, in the short term, you won't get any ill effects from leaving it cocked for hours on end. If you leave the SF primed and in your backpack/pocket, it will very slowly leak air. Dual modded Nite Finders is a formidable arsenal, even against much larger guns.

If what you're looking for is more of a super-accurate gun for sneaking up on people and taking them out quickly, I'd go with the AirTech 2000 which is available in 2-packs at Target and is easily modded into one of the most accurate nerf guns around.

Have fun!

If you have the money you could go with a Lnl but I think a Nitefinder would be your best bet.

Actualy, most people who have both like the Nitefinders performance more than the Lock 'n Load. But they also usualy say the Lnl has a nicer "Melt in your hand" feeling. I would get a Nitefiner for a side arm.

I'm going to second Cx on the AT2k. I love going assassin with it. It is larger than a NF, but you get more range, and it's more accurate. For a fast shot, meant to get the kill quick, use it.
If that doesn't get your goat, do what everyone else has said so far. Nite Finder. You will find it anywhere, they're cheap, and they can be modded several ways.
My original impression was the same as Starbuck's, an SF.

I vote maximizer or ultimator.




In all seriousness, though.

I vote Tech Target or Nite Finder. Your friend might not count the AT2k as a "pistol" just because well....'tis a bit more powerful.

How's the Tech Target pistol. It looks small enough to fit in your pocket. I sort of want something I can carry around. One of my friends has a modded AT2K, but it's too big for something I want.

Tech Target is approximately Nite Finder size and gets about the same ranges, depending on your mod and your darts.

People tend to avoid it because it costs more than a Nitefinder because you get the Target with it. I'm saving up some cash to get myself one, to compare it against my NF.

Really? The Tech Target looks smaller than the Nite Finder. Which one has better mods? I was just going to buy one at Target or something, then mod it.

TTG has easier mods, especially if you go with mine. The entire mods take only 15 minutes and get great ranges.

I'd also go with the Tech Target. It's more costly but gets great ranges and is also easily modded. It is however, larger than the NF but should still fit in your pocket.

"Better mods" is completely open to interpretation. It also depends on your own general skill as a modifier, as well as the barrel and the darts you use. An "easy mod" isn't necessarily the "best", but then again neither is the "hardest mod."

If fitting things in your pocket is the issue, then I think the scount should be the better pistol.
If you want to fit in your backpack, then at2k. Well, actually with the at2k you'll have to pump it so that's going to cost you.
Another pistol that no one mentioned is the maverick.

If we're talking assassins here, I really don't see the point of the Mav. All of the guns mentioned here outclass it. I know there's been topic after topic about the Maverick being disappointing. In order to use it assassin-like, you would need to sneak up on your prey, and get within 30 feet in order to have a decent shot. I don't mean to bash the gun (I really like it myself), but we have so many better guns going around.
On the TTG vs. NF idea, I'd prefer the NF. This is only cost-based though. If the TTG came without the target, I would have bought one.

I think you should get a NF and then PPK mod it so it is a lot smaller and more convienant for your purposes.

Well, I have both the tech target and the Nite Finder, and personally I like the NF better. Makes a lot less noise(the TTG makes this huge clang! every time you fire it), it seems to get a bit better range(slightly), and it's easier to aim.

How's the Tech Target pistol. It looks small enough to fit in your pocket. I sort of want something I can carry around...

Ya know, the Tech Target Gun (TTG) is a bit bigger than a Nite Finder in the way of overall dimension (L x H), but it has a pretty thin profile, and the Nite Finder, with it's 'laser sight', has these two tabs to adjust the red light that snag on pockets pretty easily. While this can be remedied by whacking off the tabs, you may eliminate the ability to adjust the light, or if it breaks, you'd lose the light altogether.

The TTG is also easy as pie to modify for increased range...Starbuck detailed a mod that many of us have done, using a simple piece of CPVC tubing, and using homemade micro stefan ammo, and it gets incredible ranges...50 feet easy without banding, even more if you add bands.

If you're going to extensively modify, and hack 'n' slash 'n' glue, the guys' recommendation of the NiteFinder PPK-style mod would be a great choice; you'd lose the light and reduce some size...but it's been my thought process that 'extensively modified' also means 'quite breakable under certain conditions'...like pockets...so that's something to consider also.

I'm going to assume you're in college, playing assassins. I'd recommend keeping the blasters the color they are, all bright and toy-like. No sense getting security all worked up with authentic colored 'guns' (like so many here on the Nerf boards seem to desire).

Have fun 'taking your friends out'!

Well, how did you mod both of the guns? I've found that in your posts you usually don't give enough info for people to really understand/care about what you're saying. I honestly haven't CPVC'd my TTG, but with my PETG'd NF i get around 50', so i think that they have about equal power. Going back to what madman said about noise, I think you could just stuff some foam/pipe insulator in the gun and it will absorb some of the big Clang! noises.

To get rid of noise on a spring gun, try putting some cotton in there, around where the plunger tube ends.
