So I meant to grab on of these when they were on offer at argos but l missed out , luckily i found one for only a couple of pound more.


The big faux barrels look bad ass



But although they are where the appeal of this blaster is they're also the problem.
The pump grip would be better a bit further forward


It could do with a longer prime and utilise that for extra power and to be honest loading isnt as easy as a true front loader.

The fact you can usually find either the rough cut or guardian for half the price of this blaster also doesnt help it.
In my opion those two both have more to offer.



I do like the handle though, So I think I'll be doing this little mod

Nice review! How do you find the prime? Mine is pretty crunchy, I'm not sure if it's just how they are, I had a Guardian Crossbow and it felt far lighter and smoother...

Mine's in the Pile O Projects I Will Never Start, it basically needs everything forward of the pump grip sawn off.

Yeah the prime on mine is the same, not in the same league as the crossbow which is weird. Mines is definitely getting chopped.

I think the extra weight of all that plastic slows the turret rotation as well so slam fire is pretty poor
