Sorry about that, we got the message. Cap will be moved to the top next year and eliminate that noise. We tried, didn't quite get everything right. We will also take a look at the intake tube. Thanks for the feedback.

Keep soaking!

Buzz Bee does not "hate" modders. We discourage modifications for both safety and insurance reasons, especially with pressurized blasters. The diaphram builds pressure up to 60 psi, thus the total pulling force on the joint, when fully pressurized, is in excess of 400 lbs. Each screw can reliably m...

Well............nuts! I thought it was a good idea and a great design to have the fill cap at the bottom of the tank. I guess that's what happens when you try something new. We can change that for next year, and the pump handle, I think. Keep it coming, we all learn from your comments.

Is it just me, or does it seem like only the range people have been ignored? You don't even need great power to achieve great ranges, you could hit 50 with a small, lackadaisical stream and it would be totally harmless. You don't need a big gun to do it, you don't need more than one pc to do it, yo...

There are some very very good ideas here. I think we need to re-look at our direction for 2007. Please keep them coming, we may have something here.

You guys really ask the tough questions. For "new" it is more distribution than development. Chamelion, Splat Blaster and Scorpion are "new" developments for this year. Cross-Fire is new for distribution. This is about the same as last year. THe Aqua Master series (Argon, Xenon, and Krypton) are im...

I think it looks great. One question though, does the pump automatically activate when you shoot or is there some kind of switch or button to activate it? There is a switch to turn unit on and off, off when you are not using it. The pumping is controlled by a pressure sensor inside the gun and the ...

Apparently, some of you are going to be REALLY disappointed. The Scorpion uses a rechargeable battery to pressurize a hydro-system diaphram for maximum distance. There is no pump in this gun, if you run out of battery charge, this blaster is out of the game. The good news is, the battery life per c...

I guess only time will tell. We designed this based on what I thought you guys were asking for. It is a defensive blaster. Used for last ditch soaking when the big guns run out. It is also for a generally lower aged user than the people in this forum. If it goes well, and early results look like it...

For increased distance, I think 2006 will leave you all a little flat, there has not been much improvement in this area. The good news is, Ben has offered us a suggestion that might work and increase distance substantially, but would be a 2007 offering.

Haven't posted since April? Sorry! It's alittle too early to give a full disclosure of the 2006 line, but it's fair to say we are listening and doing the best we can. Some of the highlights: Aqua-Master system will be improved to make pumping a little easier. Argon will still use 3 pumps, Xenon wil...

IF it was pumped 200 times before filling I'm suprised it worked at all. Any way, using the diaphram guns a couple of times at first will improve performance as the rubber gets "stretched" into shape. As for making one shoot farther, well, we already discussed this. There are safety considerations ...

I'm actually quite intreagued by the shotgun with folding stock design concept. Shouldn't the stock have a function in addition to being just an added on piece of plastic? Maybe a reservoir? Would a change in the weight due to the consumption of water be a problem?

Please forgive my extremely biased opinion on this, but this appears to me to be a pretty good blaster. It is in my personal best interest for all companies to have the best they can make in the market and allow that competetion to generate excitement in the market and grow the business in general....
