Weak spots of monster xl

Post by solar00 » Sat May 19, 2007 8:01 pm


Like the weak cps4100 trigger, does the monster xl also have weak spots in it construction?

I like to buy one (from a local auction site or Ebay) but since they're all in used state i like to know if there are parts that can break easily.
How durable are these guns?

Since there not cheap i want to find one that actually keeps working.(i don't mind if it has a minor leakage or scratches)

The MXL is fine. The CPS 4100 Mk.2 (the SoakerTag re-release) is the only gun that has a trigger notoriously prone to breaking, although I believe the CPS 2100 Mk.2's trigger is similar. All other guns, including non-Mk.2 CPS 4100s, should be fine.

Of course, Super Soakers with Max-D triggers (the Max-D series, recent water guns, etc.) have issues with the springs weakening.

The MXL should be fine though. :cool:
