Use stefans, and you'll get much better range, due to the lack of a large air pocket as using"reds" has.

55 feet isn't really that bad...

why would you get a bad range with red micro darts... those are great, maybe not in that gun... if you PVC mod a max shot and use them you'll get 120 feet, lech, why would the air pocket make a difference?

Ok, well a couple of things.

First off, have any of the East Coast guys been able to find this gun. I went to the walmart today, and they didn't have any, nor any other nerf products. Well I shouldn't say any. They did have some weird vortex pistol that shoots little tiny glow in the dark darts.

Second off, and perhaps this really belongs in trading, but if anyone can get ahold of this gun for me, I will be glad to pay you for it.

Third off, is the gun actually that good. Granted that any cocking pistol at this point would be a relief, but to compare it with a lock n load. Thats a steep comparison.

Anyway,

Talio.

Yes, Talio asked all the questions that I was going to ask.

Can anyone give any pictures of their modified Target Set Gun?

I hope this answers your questions.

1. I live in the east coast and they had a few of these guns at my wal mart.

2. I can't sell one to you because my wal mart is now sold out of the tech target pistols.

3. This isn't that good before modification (about 25 feet) but after I simply replaced the barrel with PVC and stuck a crayola in the PVC it gets about 70 feet with red micro darts.

I went to my local Wal-Mart today and all they had in the "Atom Blasters" line was the Reactor.

So I went over to TRU to see if I could find a maxshot for Evil, and I noticed they finally restocked their Nerf shelf. And there it was, in all it's glory. A tech target just waiting for me. Like a gitty school girl I snagged one up and went running out of the store with squels of joy. When I got in my car, I whipped the bitch out, only to find that this is the most badass feeling weapon I have ever held. Sure the LNL might be cool, feel like a real gun, and shoot well, but christ. This gun is huge in comparison to most nerf pistol, and it makes you feel like dirty harry (go ahead, make my day!). Anyway, I'm cracking this bitch tonight when I get home, and will then decide on any modifications, but I say this, it would be perfect for a basic bungee chord and spring mod. So let me ask this. For those of you who have already modded this gun, pvc, copper or brass, and how long? I'm probably not going to put a huge barrel on it, and I'm thinking most likely brass, if I can find it. Not much more to say other than the pictures do not do this thing justice. It just looks and feels so cool.

Talio, when you open the gun you will see that the main plunger shaft comes apart in threes. One is the tube for the plunger to fly through, next is a connecting piece for the plunger tube and barrel. Lastly is obviously the barrel. The connector piece is GOLD. If you dremel out the middle with all the holes and the peg, it fits perfectly inside 1/2" PVC. I'm workin on this mod tonight and I hope to debut it at the Fest.

One Man Clan please tell me your results when you perfect it. I think I now need to go out and find this gun. Hell I will walk the mile in the pitch black if this is the new LNL.

Hersh man, you've got skills when it comes to this shit, I had to file out the sides like a bitch to get a peice of pvc to fit in there, But it fits, I feel I have completely ruined it. I too wished to have mine debuted at the fest, but we'll have to see.

Hope fully it doesn't come down to that One Man Clan. The next time I am probably going to see you is at APOC2004.

I just got the cyclotron. it's not bad for a ball shooter. I still need to take picks and open the thing up. I'm afraid of what might happen if I do though. so, pray for me.

Dark Shrimp got one at Wal-Mart in NJ... I tried it out and it gets decent unmodded distance (~30ft). He (or we) will probably mod it sometime soon. It has lots of potential...

My best friend here just bought himself a Tech Target, and it works awesomely. It feels just right in my hand, and it gets good range unmodded with the whistling megas.

I just got a TTS at Wal-Mart. Is 4" a good length, or would something longer or shorter be more appropriate?

Mine is 4inches long and gets really good range if you push the dart down the barrel.

My Tech Target, which was given to me by some Nerf guy at Gnomefest, is one of my favorite guns. I may only have 2, but it still shoots pretty well. I replaced the barrel with 5 inches of CPVC and stretched the spring to it capacity. It gets about 50ft and has deadly accuracy. If you pass by a Toys R Us, or a Nerf Guy, be sure to pick one up.
