Buzz Bee Tek 4 Review

I meant to do this a couple days ago, but then life got in the way and I got sidetracked. Anyway, here is a review of the Buzz Bee Tek 4:

The Tek 4 is nearly identical in practice to the newer Rogue; they both are small, spring-powered blasters with 4-dart manual turrets. They also both get similar ranges; the Rogue gets 30' and the Tek 4 gets 25', although it's older and came from a thrift store. The major difference is the priming method; the Rogue has a sliding prime while the Tek 4 has a pull back prime.

One of the most interesting features of the Tek 4 is the plunger rod; it's nothing more than a thin metal rod. This is the only blaster that I know of that uses this kind of plunger rod, making it unique. The plunger head itself is akin to a super-extended SNAP plunger head, which is also very uncommon. This makes the Tek 4 an interesting blaster, if not a very good one. 



  1. I have a couple of these. They are surprisingly better than they look like they'd be.

  2. Mired Thoughts, what college do you go to?

    1. Mired is too good to answer comments. lol :0

    2. No, I'm actually just really busy doing war prep for a war on Saturday. I actually can't answer that question, because people will come to stalk Drac. Maybe some day.

  3. The springs in these things are actually pretty powerful, stronger than a nightfinder and can be put into things like vulcans, night finders, swarmfires to either replace or add to the original spring. I currently have one in a swarmfire and vulcan with really good results.

    In fact many buzzbee springs are ideal for this since they tend to use strong but smaller diameter springs.
