Are they even allowed to do this?

It's just an offbrand NF knock-off. So what?

Didn't NerfMonkey do a mod on one of these once?

That's pretty lame.

What are the ranges on it? It looks like a Tech Target crammed in a wack-ass Nite Finder.

Laws on patent infringment/improvement are jokes. You have to change like 3 minute details in order to use the same concept.

NerfMonkey had one of these at DCNO last Saturday.

Made me want to buy 2 or 3. Maybe mod one with a half size industrial spring.

Mine gets 40' with a nice-fitting barrel. Buy a few, mod some and sell the rest off to collectors.

Toy Quest recently released a Spider-Man 3 version of this gun, there's a thread about it around here somewhere.

Edit: Here's the thread I was talking about.

The Spider-Man versions can be found at Big Lots, and I've seen the one Yazzeh has pictured at Dollar General stores.

If anyone seen my topic this is the exact gun I was talking about. It shoots realy nice when modded. Just make sure to reinforce the plunger cause it snaps easily.

I pvc modded this gun 2 years ago ive spent at elast 20 dollars on these things, (that was a joke)
But anyhow I did mod it and its not that bad, but cracker jack up there has a point the plungers give out very easily.

I bought one at a dollar store in Maine. With a new barrel and a bit bigger of a spring, the thing broke. Range is about that of a stock old style NF.

The darts that come with it are dangerous in high-powered guns. They can dent walls. They're also not too well balanced.

I bought this at a Dollar Store in my downtown area. I might just buy 20 bucks worth of these and use the ready made plungers to try out my Gauntlet Gun homemade idea.

I haven't actually opened this one yet, I just wanted to show you guys. I had one before, but it wasn't designed after the NF. Anyhow, I know these guns have decent range for a dollar. I mean, any range is good for a dollar! And stock NF ranges are acceptable for something that's this small and this cheaply made.

Yeah I saw one of those at DCNO. Its a cute little thing. Good for a indoor war. We should have given that to I think it was Papabear's little boy. ITs truly pocketable.
I love imports.

I recently grabbed the TTG-equivalent of that gun. Almost the same case, but smaller and crappier. It shot ~10 feet stock, and doesn't have the power (weak spring, plunger head too large) to get darts out of the CPVC barrel I stuck on it.
