Looks like a CPS 1-3-5 MK2 in mint condition.



Thanks for posting those links- I was able to get the 1-3-5.

Are you going to mod it or just use it stock?

I will drill the center nozzle, and maybe make removable caps for the other 4. I want to be able to get 3-4X from the center and fire the fan nozzles too if possible. Did you know you can pump while shooting this thing on one nozzle and fire constantly until the reservoir runs out?

Yep http://hydrowar.wordpress.com/2013/06/12/cps-1-3-5/ I've always thought it would be good for modding, but I never thought about your idea for removable caps.

You should make the cap on the CENTER nozzle removable, since the trigger actuates the outer 4 nozzles you don't need to cap them. Also, if the center nozzle is drilled, you are going to get crap range out of the stock side nozzles if you pull the trigger farther back.
So maybe what you should do is, drill the center nozzle, and come up with a quick-twist or slip endcap drilled to the stock size. That way you can use the center at full power for your primary, and you can always shove on the reducer and use it like it was stock.
I've always wanted a 1-3-5... ;D

Is the nozzle selector able to handle 3-5X firing one nozzle? I have access to a 3D printer, so I might be able to eventually make some nozzle designs. In the meantime, I might glue PVC threaded fittings onto all 5 and drill the center, like soakinader said. I could then put caps on the 4 fan nozzles and use the center drilled nozzle.

I heard the 1-3-5 needs the other nozzles plugged to get maximum power out of the center nozzle. Is this true, or can it support a drilled center nozzle without plugging the other nozzles?

You can drill the nozzle in the center without altering the other nozzles. I'm really interested to see what you end up coming up with.

I found a new store today called Dirt Cheap. It exclusively sells merchandise that other stores can't get rid of. Or at least that's what it looks like. Lots of damaged boxes. There's so much stuff on the shelf that there's basically no organization. Some merchandise is in piles.

Anyway, they had a load of NSS for cheap. Like a giant bin in the front of the store with NSS and pool toys. The Microburst was 80% off retail of $6, which comes out to $1.20. They had Point Breaks and Electrostorms too. The Point Breaks were some % off of $12... and the Electrostorms were some % off $11 or $10 can't remember. It's weird because the toys have such a high price tag on them to begin with, not sure if it's MSRP or what, which is confusing at first, but since everything is marked down at least 50% the end price isn't that much. I was contemplating getting a Microburst or Point Break for some modding in the future just because the handles are really nice, but I couldn't think of anything I plan on doing that would actually need that. Unfortunately they didn't have any BBT guns other than 1 Kwik Grips XL. The biggest water warriors gun you can find in this town (wal mart) is a Cricket or Steady Stream 2.

They also had some nerf guns new in damaged boxes. They had a Praxis, retaliator, rayven elite, and automatic 20. Probably not going to buy any of those unless they are worth selling on ebay.

I know this is old news, but FWIW there is no such thing as an air pressure Super Charger. This was just an error printed on the Mk1s.

I am well aware of this fact. I only wrote Air pressure to qualify it as a SC600 which appears to be a mk1, with a sticker that says "Air Pressure".
And for what it's worth, there is such a thing as an air pressure Super Charger. It's called the 400. :P
Now that I think about it, I wonder if the entire line (400,500,600) mistakenly received the Air Pressure stickers (at first) because of the 400?

Interesting. This looks like a 2014 re-release. I guess BBT is bringing back the Ultimate line (while renaming it to "Snap-It"). Maybe they'll have some new blasters; a replacement for the Ultimate Vanquisher would be great. (Though not as good as a Gorgon 2!)

I'm very doubtful that this is a 2014 rerelease. Note that all the stats are in the metric system. Most likely this is a Canadian, British, or Australian/New Zealand version. The colors look pretty sweet.

I agree with M4 this is likely a European release.

100% authentic shoes available. I really don't like the seller identitiesrevealed, but it really is in nice condition.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Super-soaker-MK ... 461d1d52a0
A CPS 2000 MK1. The price is definitely up there, but I would imagine that someone will buy it soon. I mean, how much fun can you get for 200$?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/LOT-OF-3-1997-L ... 3cdee5d02c
And we have 3 CPS 3000 for sale! No backpacks, and untested. I figure someone could ask the seller to dunk these into their bathtub and pump, but regardless it's a pretty unique deal.

And lastly:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lugami-super-so ... 2a39b925a8
A super rare Lugami CPS 2000. Lugami was a Japanese corporation that produced knock-off CPS super soakers like the Super Shooter 2000 up until 2005. This one is mislabelled, it is actually a 3000 (which is a replica of a CPS 2500).
Nah, I'm just kidding. It's a normal CPS 2500 but the selling price is probably going to be low. A good deal!

An MK1 for $200 is an automatic buy, but I am out of money. That will go up if you can afford to sit on it for a while (months).

There's a 2000 for around $30 BIN. Someone get it! The catch is no shipping, you have to drive to Chicago...
