Boomco halo Needler

Want to buy this and mod it, are the boomco blasters difficult to mod and would it be similar springs to the Nerf blasters?
OldNoob

Given its not available here or in stores in the US yet this is a difficult question to answer. Modding BoomCo springers won't yield the same power gains or top end as Nerf ones, the ammunition and barrel sealing systems are too different for traditional methods like rebarelling to work. Some previous BoomCo  blasters have been completely sealed internally at the factory, precluding any mod potential.
Personally a likely UK price of £39.99 makes this an unattractive buy for game use, just like the Star Wars stuff, you pay a pointless premium for the licence and get a toy grade blaster in exchange.

Edit- availability corrected. it's here if people want to order it

It's available to buy off amazon

The blaster is basically a Twisted Spinner with a trigger. The spring is probably as good as you'll get so sadly no upgrades there but here's how to remove the AR style lock and get a better plunger to barrel seal in the process: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tt30ydG2swk

And, if you want it to fire Nerf, a little tweaking to the revolver will have them sitting in there nicely, though you may need to add more barreling over what's shown here to get the best performance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBUF3TMm-BA

Should you desire to take it even further, all I can imagine is sanding down the inside front end of the barrel and PTFE taping under the O-ring so that you get more effective length out of it.

Hell, I'll probably do all that myself once sales hit.

Aren't they all 'toy grade blasters?' After all they are toys and would be useless in the zombie apocalypse!
OldNoob

By "Toy Grade" I mean they are sized and built purely for kids, often with poor components and stock performance. Most more sensible blasters are sized so that adults can use them as well as having a propulsion system that has mod potential. If I am going to spend my very limited resources on something it had better be useable in a game at the end.
