Step 1: Marking the Darts

first I marked two darts recon and retaliator

Step 2: Marking the Sidewalk

use the chalk and the measuring tape to mark off each foot (I started at ten feet because they obviously shoot that far)

Step 3: Preparing Guns

load the darts into each gun

Step 4:

65 24 feet less then retaliator
stand on your starting line the guns next to each other and fire!

Step 5: Results

the retaliator shot about 65 feet at a slight angle the recon shot 24 feet less at 41 feet thanks for reading

    Cool test! :) The Retaliator got slightly better ranges for me though. I don't remember what they were, but I did a Retaliator Firing Demo Instructable a while back, for like my third ible. I wonder what the difference was...

    I removed the air restrictor on my retaliator and it increased the range by a lot. It also increased the fps it hurts a little more now.
