got a link? I grabbed a nitefinder, but it is disappointing
Here is a nite finder mod link:
Do the things there minus the barrel replacement and it should be a BIT better. Not really noticeable. But stretch the spring a bit and/or add rubber bands on the outside and you WILL notice the difference.

Heads up that Myer has the Recon at $29.95 in there latest Toy Catalogue for anyone that missed out.
sweet, I'll have to go get one...
Sweet... thats a good price
For the Sydneysiders here: wandered into Toys 'R Us at Parramatta Westfield today and saw a whole stack of Vulcans - can't remember how much they were though (damned short term memory...)
Latest national Toys 'R Us catalogue has the Vulcan for $49.99 or the Recon CS-6 with tactical rail sharpshooter scope for $39.99.
From 6th to 24th Nov.
I just checked out the Gardens City toys-r-us and they had no stock.... dare I attempt to make it to the aspley store....
Probably all gone. I went to Toys r Us Penrith on the Thursday and they had 13 left, I went today and they're all gone...
Starting Thursday 13th November, Target has the Recon CS-6 for $29.99. Target's sells the value pack recons which have 20 extra darts.
bonus, I'll probably have a chance to get to a target, myer was too far away...
I will be modifying one of these suckers into a coil gun soon enough
Is the perfect candidate, as it has lots of room for coils, capacitors and batteries
Yeah... ill probably give it a few weeks and try again :|
Nerf Recon CS-6 for $24.99 at Kmart starting Thursday 13th November.
I'd probably go for the Target one though for $29.99 since it has 20 extra darts...
hmm, get target to price match kmart? take the catalogue in, will probably work...
The only thing about the recon's is the fact that they use the streamline darts and only that unless its modded..
All the other guns I have can use all kinds ie. Micro suction, Screamer, Dart Tag, Streamline, Buzz bee darts..
So this is kind of annoying in a war cos you can't just go around picking up any bullets from the ground, you'd have to look specifically for the streamlines...
Also the Recon is not that great a gun IMO, it seems more like a gimmicky gun w/ all the attaching parts.
My favourite gun is the Iron Man Firefly, 8 SHOTS, Fast out of the box.
$49.95 @ Target
$29.90 @ Toys R Us CLEARANCE
$26.00 @ Kmart CLEARANCE (Impossible to find by now)
I tend to agree... It doesn't shoot with much velocity and all the aiming attachments are as useless as a screen door on a submarine. Looks cool though. The girlfriend may be getting me a Vulcan for christmas if she can find one!
The Vulcan is not all that useful either. Its heavy and bulky to run around with, takes AGES to reload since it only comes with one belt. So give that 1 - 2 mins to fill the belt, and 20 seconds to hook it up.
And finally it tends to jam too much to make it worthwhile to use (unless its just me or my gun). Other points - it sometimes shoots a few darts less than a 1 M away, its not as fast as I was expecting and its range is only great for indoor wars.
Aside from all these points, you still gotta own a vulcan just for the fact that it looks awesome and its so intimidating. You'll get owned in a war but at least you got a vulcan
I've never seen this one, checked out all three stores for any dart shooting guns...
You play gun games with them? Maybe Im showing my age by not understanding the appeal.
I just shoot the cat, the missus and any one that enters my front door if I have one near by. Other than that they sit in the corner so that I can relive my youth when needed.
