Default The X-Shot Stealth - my version

Okay, first off.

I know many of you have turned your back on this series of blasters. I completely understand. I know they're gimmicky and cannot not hold up to it's brothers on either side of the fence (Foam or Water). However, I'm all for the "fun" blaster as well as the power blasters.

Here, I tried to make the xShot Stealth a little more worthy.

You've all seen this neglected blaster.

~before


~inside and out.

After I made it go!

The outside:



The inside:



...wait a minute. What's that?



That's right! I've modded the stock nozzle into a CPVC couplered attachment.

The second barrel can shoot darts and/or water. Both barrels get high 70's, low 80' flat (foam darts). With the water nozzle, it only shoots 25' but it's a continuous pressurized stream now not just a 'squirt'.

The key points are that the small reservoir is also now a pressure chamber. It can still shoot water. And most interestingly, a 'couplered nozzle'. This tells me that making different nozzle attachments is possible.

In foam blasters this concept is known as a 'speedloader'. I've seen homemade nozzles here before but never as a 'couplered' attachment.

This is what the xShot Series should have been all along.

LOL!!! Of Course! That's the first thing I did. Complete fail. The dart barely made it 6 feet and the water just came out in a messy "splat". It's either or, or it fails on both accounts.
It needs the nozzle for the water. The pressure created is not enough for both the mass of the water and the dart.

But separately, they're pretty impressive, considering.

With an arc, I can get 35' with the water nozzle attachment. 25' flat.

That makes sense. I forgot how small the tubing is. The water can only get by so fast. On some guns, I feel that the fact that water does not compress would help ranges.

You make some very interesting mods, and something I would like to see is the thunderstorm made into something useful. I can't start my mod today, but I'm planning for an epic nerf mod to the hydro cannon.
