Once I dropped a loaded STS on the ground and had it go off. I was thinking about it and thought of what a great grenade these would make.

I'm not sure how many of you actually know how an STS works so I'll try to explain. The air comes from the pump into the first chamber and then the second chamber. The trigger is part of the first chamber. When the gun is fully pumped, both chambers are at a high pressure. When you press the trigger, the pressure in the first chamber decreases because air goes out the trigger hole. The pressure from the second chamber wants to go to the first. So while the air is going from the second to the first, the cap is forced closed and air is released from the second chamber out to the barrel.


(I drew this in paint like 2-3 years ago )

(Image wouldn't display here so I posted a url)

So when you connect all the STS's together by the first chamber, Pressing one trigger fires all 4.

I might try putting something like this on the front of a XXL Missile.

Holly hammer of Thor... Does it work? I mean when you trow it, do darts go flying? You should cut up tiny little stefans and load like 4 in each barrel so it shoots more projectiles.

I really like this idea, I think it has possibilities as an integration. To integrate this into a gun, instead of pointing the barrels in different directions, you could point them all forwards. So that way, when you pushed the trigger, a massive volley of darts would issue forth from your gun.
In terms of improving the grenade idea, maybe you should try shotgun barrel attachments. The Pocket Blaster may not have enough power to drive them, but if it does, it should increase the amount of darts in the air.

That's awesome! Did you just cut into the sides of the first chambers on each of them and tube them together?

I will definitely be buying a few more of these for experimentation.

I don't get my kicks out of you,
I don't feel the way I used to do.
I know its bad,
After what we had,
But Iím just not the angel you knew.

Lefty likes to refer to them as STS's, or Secret Target Strikes. That's the n-strike name for them I believe.

Yeah, I believe they went from Secret Strike Pocket Blaster to Secret Target Strike and the new ones are just called Secret Strikes.

It worked for a while but something's wrong now.

You just have to drill a 1/4" hole and superglue vinyl there. The two on the sides in the picture are connected from where the pump hole was. The top one is connected to the left one, the right one is connected to the bottom one..

The SSPB's trigger is strangley reminiscent to the piston designs used on spud guns in a sense that both use a pilot valve to open the "valve" that leads to the barrel. I've been trying to design pilot activated valves for a while but now I think I might have just found it. Thanks (But don't expect to see a homemade from me anytime soon.)

This mod is one of the most original mod I've seen in a while.

Yeah I think my uncle has a spud gun that works the same. SS2's also work the same.

I guess you have some heavy duty industrial strength toilet paper holders. Do they advise you to wear eye protection when changing rolls?
