    Mod;
    Get Spectre,
    Open it up, (3 screws in the handle, 2 in the slide & 4 or 5 others)
    open up the turret, (5 screws)
    let the AR's and barrel posts fall out, (5 restrictors, 5 small springs, 5 barrel posts, all useless shit)
    put it back together and you're done.

    There you go.

    It's better than an AR removed Maverick mainly because the seals are MUCH better in the plunger & the rotation Mech is much more reliable.

    The 'barrel extension' is pretty cool. It doesn't do much but look badass on a longshot.
    The folding stock is a novelty. I noted that it's about 3 inch longer than the raider's stock. Good if you have long arms I guess.

    The whole gun is a lot easier to holster than a mav, being slightly thinner & significantly lighter.

    If you have any questions about the spectre i'd be glad to answer them.

    Special thanks to Chad for the b-day present. It was not expected at all.

    Dude chill. Maybe he knew where his parents got it from or he asked his parents. You shouldn't be so quick to dismiss one's post. I am sure people have flamed you, i know people have flamed me. So stop this talk about flaming and help the dam kid!

    @Nuggetsfan, either PM him about something like that or you will get certain people, on your back sometimes.

    You lose 16.7% dart capacity when switching from a maverick to a spectre. I’m not sure if this extreme loss in ammo capacity is really worth the difference in weight, but I believe both have no place as a side arm; the maverick is only so popular due to its price and authentic appeal, while the only reason I could see anyone using the spectre is due to it being brand new.

    You lose ONE dart when switching from a maverick to a spectre.
    That doesn't matter much to me, as the Spectre's slim form and lower weight and better rotation mech all lead to a quicker draw from holster and less shots failing to fire.

    Note that I said "me", if YOU like the Maverick better I'm fine with that. After all it has more darts.

    Now to wait for the $12 Spectre (LOL it'll never happen - just like the element is $35 because of its accessories, the Spectre will be $25 at the bare minimum.

    When you mod it, do you pull EVERYTHING out, or do you leave the posts in like the Maverick mod?

    Being more compacts than a mav just means it has less room for a new plunger. Thus more useless.
    I well probably still get one tho.

    The fact that they have a better rate of fire than any other alternative pistol (other than the barricade) makes both the spectre and maverick a better choice for a side-arm. While re-loading your primary, you may get rushed, rate-of-fire counters rushers, if you have only 1 shot (NF etc) and miss, you're boned. If you are rushed by 2 people, you WILL lose with a single shot pistol as your secondary.

    Everything. You could cut the rods out, but I beleive that the seal is far superior than the maverick with or without parts of the pegs.

    The plunger is THE SAME SIZE as the maverick one and there is PLENTY of room for a NF integration.

    You get 1 less shot but that sacrifice is worth it for a FAR superior rotation mech, reduction in shell size and better aesthetics (the feel of the gun).

    Sorry I was talking about for modding. If a NF tube fits in that makes it better. I'd prefer something bigger tho.

    Agreed with everying Chaos said. I got mine today and so far i dont see many problem with this blaster. My opinion is that this blaster is BETTER than the all famous Maverick. This blaster is the Maverick version 2.

    So you're talking about replacing the plunger with something bigger right?
    You want enough room inside the blaster to put in a LS or triple-shot plunger??

    Get a Dart tag blaster (hyperfire)

    I've got a furyfire for that. I like the priming handle at the front. But a hyperfire is a good choice yes.

    Duke, If you are having trouble using a hammer, try using some pliers or side cutters or pincers. I have always used some small side cutters or my pincers to good affect. It takes a bit of force to get the pin out sometimes, and also watch out for the spring that is over the pin, it tends to go flying off.

    Gooni.

    The way my friend modified mine was a bit nasty. I would have done it myself but I was busy working on my car, so he opted to mod the blaster when I didnt need his extra hands.

    Basically he didnt know you could separate the barrel completely, or didnt want to break my brand new blaster while attempting to, so he just undid the screws and got a hack saw in there and cut most of the crap out. he pulled the rest out with pliers.

    wrapped the seam in E-tape to help with the seal.

    The way I did my Maverick was easy - side cutters underneath the front swing arm, levering towards the pin (so the fulcrum is under the swing arm, in the center of the turret). i would assume this works for the spectre too but Im not familiar enough with it to know (I havent looked at it much since I didnt mod it).

    on my maverick, this pulled the metal rod through the turret and separated the rear orange pin from the rod rather than the front. so be ready to catch the spring.
