The Spring Thunder, a pump action springer blaster with real working ejecting shells. Inspired by its real steel counter parts the Remington 870 and the Mosseberg, this blaster replica operates like the real thing. Feed shells into the bottom tube magazine, then chamber, fire and eject spent casings with each firing. This blaster platform also allows the user to fire all sorts of projectiles, making it a masterkey for close and long range encounters. See shell variants below for more details.
* Note *
Purchase doesn’t not come with bandoleer or accessories shown above, purchase is only for base blaster and the included shells. The stock and rails must be purchased separately.

This blaster uses a high powered spring, I am not responsible for any damage you inflict onto yourself or others with my product. Never reach into the breech/ejection port, and always shake out trapped parts. Only reach into the breech if the primary power spring has been removed. I highly recommend you read through the operations and safety procedures here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1pxDLre2yrnuVqgoLp06jrj9ySPL10m9WcZxwNV5AtkY/view
This product uses a 20lb spring and as such requires you to be able to pull 20lb every time you wish to fire. If you cannot pull this hard you will not be able to use the blaster. The recommended user age is 16+. As a 3d printed part, this product is vulnerable to high heats, be careful not to leave this toy in the car or in direct sunlight.

Primary Shell Variants:
Rival Buckshot: Fires 3 Rival Rounds in a medium predictable spread. Extremely high stopping power at close range, capable of decimating cups with its 80 fps exit velocity. However, being a shotgun blast, this round quickly looses effectiveness at range. At which point it acts better as a mortar than a projectile.
Dart Slugs: These allow single elites and half lengths to be used. The open cavity at the top allows large headed darts such as whistlers and velcro tips to be fired. This is the highest performing shell type with 100+ fps out of the box. This can be extended to 165 to 200fps sniper style performance with the sniper kit, available also at the shop.
MEGA Slugs: Basically giant versions of the dart slugs, except these fire a single shortened MEGA dart. It’s both hilarious and a little scary.
Boomco Flechettes: This is as close as I can get to the sledge fire’s shotgun shell, as 3 elite darts cannot be fitted in the shells. This fires 3 Boomco darts in a similar fashion to the Sledgefire, 3 in parallel. This offers the best stopping power at range, as Boomcos fly faster and farther than the Rival Buckshot while retaining power at range. Though faulty Boomco darts may cause wild spreads.
Double Elites: These fire 2 elite style darts side by side. Performance is weakest of the variants, but gives the opportunity to use regular darts in place of the Boomco to achieve a shotgun style blast with darts.
Kitchen Sinks: These unholy shells fire multiple types of darts within the same shell. Performance is secondary as these are used purely for the silliness in battle.
Rival Stephan: This is a strange combo of a stephan half length dart loaded behind a single Rival shot.
Boomco Nerf: Side-by-side boomco with a nerf dart
