While the topic certainly has merit, I think it won't go very far though as a thread as the most important questions have already been stated by Aqua_Flash and forestfighter7. With regards to stock soakers, there aren't too many truly meaningful questions one can pose, apart from the ones already m...

I think it will probably sell, but not at the high prices we have seen over the last couple of months. People tend to go for non-modified guns sooner than painted/modified ones. Furthermore, I would wait a while if you do decide to offer it for sale on eBay, as it is currently being flooded with a ...

Topic: Maybe interested in a Blazer?
Replies: 25

I recently purchased a Blazer (old 2003 version) out of curiosity and to test it out. The range is good, but in my opinion, ALL the streams lack any type of power in comparison to older CPS models. They are however far more consistent than most other streams I have seen, and as a result, are able t...

I just got myself a good deal on a Monster XL (paid Euro 50,- for it) :D. Considering that all Monster XL's I've seen in Europe go for at least double that (if they are at all available), that was rather nice. I was especially surprised as it appeared on a Dutch auction site; and the former owner o...

One has to be careful though when disassembling the Triple Shot, as the gun has a quite complex interior. Getting the gun back together after removing much of the internal components is a real challenge. :cool: If you need to open the gun and take apart the trigger mechanism, make sure you mark all...

Just a picture of the soaker, or should the owner of the gun also appear in the image? Also, do you want to receive pictures showing just 1 gun, or multiple soakers/armories or doesn't that matter much? Just to give everyone a clearer picture of what you're after... :goofy: I just got an extra Mons...

The issue with the Max-D triggers is that the lubrication as mentioned by sbell25 not only disappears with prolonged use, but also as a result of heat. I left a Triple Shot in a reasonably warm room once, at the next time I used it the valve wouldn't close properly anymore, making the gun useless. ...

I paid Euro 15,- (US$ 20) for a Mk2 with some exterior scratches on the tank, rusted screws and a squeaky pump. The gun shoots without problems though :D. I got it from a local auction site, with far less exposure than eBay has. The only reason these guns reach such high prices there, is because th...

It depends mostly on which type of water gun you're after. If you want to obtain one or more of the older Larami/Hasbro CPS soakers, the best chance you have is on eBay and/or other local auction sites, flea markets or garage sales. They are no longer sold in stores, so unless you are really lucky ...

£60,- for a CPS2500 is way to much, judging from the £-designation, you probably found the auction of the seller "Super Soaker Store". I would not suggest bidding on those, as the seller has quite a high minimum sales price. I consider it a bit of a rip off, as the seller actually bought them for a...

After having dusted off a display Monster XL that I have in my room and taking it outside for a few practice shots, I noticed some odd behavior.

Perhaps Babelfish translation will produce better results… In any case, most of these translation services are horrible, yet funny… Unfortunately it adds a bit to the confusion. @ Ray: Am Beste kann mann doch Ebay.de anschauen.

I recently acquired a Blazer (original version, they did not have the updated one), and while it performs relatively decent for a light gun, it has some major flaws that prevent me from recommending it to people. First of all the grip area is so small I can't even fit my hand in there properly. Tha...

I wouldn't suggest taking on a CPS2000 with a Liquidator either, unless you are really fast :). The Liquidator is a nice piece of equipment, either as a back-up or for sniping at lightly armed opponents. For these tasks, a Liquidator functions reasonably well (though I prefer the Triple Shot if you...

I thought the gun already looked weird when I first saw it, but after having seen the commercials, it appears that Hasbro has completely lost it, both in the marketing department and in the design department. First of all, who do they plan to sell this weird thing to? No self-respecting soaker enth...
