    Hmm, that means the turbofire might be a bit pricey. I was kind of hoping around $30 as many would think the "Thundershot" would of been an expensive blaster due to it's 'mechanism' and size of purchase. However, that blaster only costs $25 at K-mart.

    Finger's cross if it's cheap as it would be a great blaster to have for a developing Nerf community.

    I'm not getting my hopes up about this thing. The short priming stroke will be a killer for plunger replacement, and Xshot have a history thus far of making below average guns. I personally couldn't bring myself to spend more than $40 when there's a stampede in the same aisle.

    The only half decent blaster so far is the X-Shot stealth. Unfortunately the plunger rod's structure is fairly weak. However, you know what they say, REINFORCEMENT is key for modifying blasters (not really what they say, but it should be the mindset).

    Ehh???

    Not exactly sure what you're reading from my post, I'm talking about pressing on the front of the shotgun grip, so in the case of the Turbofire, having my hand on the diagonal front bit of the pump (circled in red) instead of gripping the sides/bottom of it (circled in blue).

    You're right, but a nice BT spring wouldn't go astray. I very much want the Whiteout Maverick, I'll transfer my Yellow Mav's BT spring to it.

    I love the look of the Longstrike! I just wish I could buy Singaplastics PVC here so I could put an R3L inside it.

    That Whiteout Longstrike looks even better than the blue one. I may actually consider getting it!
    Yes, I know it has dismal ranges and all that, so no need to go on about it. Part of playing with Nerf is how the product looks anyway, and this new Longstrike fits that perfectly.

    Those are simply concept pictures. The only known white-out guns out so far are the Longstrike and the Maverick (and probably the Recon)

    I'm building an R3L, Oxy haven't built the catch and trigger yet, don't want to mess up the PVC I have, as it cost me a fortune to get it here.

    The Mav looks really nice, but I like custom paint jobs. May get one of each different types of Mavs and leave them NIB, as collectors things.

    Lol. Air power is so good, but so impractical. We need to build a compact pump with a huge plunger tube diameter, so it can move a whole tank of air in one or two pumps. Otherwise, a Springer with a 40kg spring and plunger tube that's tucked away, with a diameter of 100mm, that is somehow easy as pie to prime.

    Yeeiw..

    Have you tried priming 22kg yet? Pretty bloody hard unless you're a massive fellow. You havent' seen enough mods on here yet! Pump replacement two pumps on air guns, cheap and practical. If it takes more than 2 pumps it's generally impractical. Then again, I must be misinterpreting sarcasm over the internet <,<. Ok it's sarcasm, I just noticed o.O.

    40 kg spring and easy to prime?
    Time to beef up those arms to cock it, or operate it like a crossbow (various ways to draw the string) or a PIAT.

    Hasbro still has them listed on their US site, so IMO the answer would be no.
