I really like the speed loader because it is shotgun style, which kicks ass and it has I think 8 shots. I also like it because there are mods...

Anyways, where can I find it? I have searched at Toys R Us and I have no luck. Oh, I am from Canada aswell so it may be down in the U.S. I am not sure..

Oh, can could someone tell me if the gun is anygood/weak and breaks apart, etc.?

I'm not sure if the gun is still in production or not. Though you could probably get one off Ebay.

I have a Speedloader, and to me, the gun is just ok. It's range isn't terrible, but it isn't too good either. Mine gets maybe 40'-50'. Though all I did was remove the air restrictors. The gun doesn't feel too weak. Except for maybe one thing; the spring is pulled back by a gear that turns to pull the plunger rod back, and that might get ruined if you put a strong spring in there.
If you want a good shotgun-like gun, I'd suggest getting that Outdoor Sportsman one. Though it's probably more expensive. Here's a link to the gun.
And here's a link to the mod.

I plan on just removing the air restrictors and maybe adding new brass barrels. I like that outdoor one except I don't know where to get those. There are no Bass Pro Shops around here.

Yea there arent any Bass pro shops near me either. At least none that I can find. Hey FH If you read this, do you know? All we have is like Gander Mountain and Dick's Sporting Goods.

Does anyone know if there is a site that sells them online?

I bought mine at Fred Meyer's in the nerf gun section for $7.99 each. If you really want I can pick you some up. But I would like some profit to go with my time. Yes, it still is in production.

I was just at Wallgreens, and they did not have any Buzz Bee or Nerf guns. Probably depends on the store.

That's cool that they are still releasing it, but I live in Canada! I guess I will have to make a trip down to the states next week or so. So Walgreens and Fred Meyers have it? And the outdoor sporting one is at Dick's Sporting?

EDIT: I don't think I will buy that 12 turret shotgun one because of the price, hard to find and modding it seems hard (no pictures and the gun is hard to put back together).

No, REI does not sell speedloaders. However I would like to confirm the earlier post that Fred Meyer does indeed have them for 7.99 within the last week.

I saw them at Meijer's for 7.99$. I bought one. They really aren't that good and they are made of really cheap plastic....

Just buy a mav...less barrels yes, but lot more worth it in the end.

Well according to others, it is a good gun. So is this gun good or not??

I am just going to mod the air restrictors and maybe brass or PETG the barrels.

I got my speedloader from Wal Mart (Toronto area) - though personally, I don't think its too spectacular. With air restrictors (only) removed, I don't think it gets more than 30 feet.

Okay I got 2 Speedloaders at Walgreens yesterday. Went home, and fired it. It sucks. 25-30 feet. I hope some mods will fix this problem...

I don't know if anyone else has noticed this, but to get an extra 5-10 ft. while stock, cock the gun twice. I know it sounds dumb, but just try it. Theoretically, it moves the plunger back farther, giving it more air-output, and better ranges. This happens because, like the eagle eye, it use gears.
