Bought four of these for a cub camp, and had great fun knocking down paper cups etc. Robustly made the body is good stocky palstic and the spring is steel, although the end sights easily clip of (superglue). The sucker darts also dont stick to much, so make some characters out of old loo rolls and knock those down instead. Range is about 20feet, and the darts come out with a good thwack, Id reccomend some adult supervision, as one in the eye at close range could hurt. After three hours use by 28 excited cubs, they were still in one piece, so build quality is very good. Buy a few more sets of darts, you only get three, and they are easily lost.
