With its power piston technology and soft splat ammo, the Max Force Shadow Hawk 100 is the next step up from conventional foam-pellet toy guns. Its advanced design uses pull-back pumping action to fire soft splat ammo pellets up to 100 feet. Outfitted with detachable accessories, mission glasses, and 240 rounds of ammo, the Shadow Hawk 100 lets kids aged 8 years and up enjoy plenty of long-range firing action.
Customized Firing with Attachments
The toy gun's sophisticated design features elaborate orange-and-gray detailing and measures more than 3 feet long with attachments. Strip down the gun for close-quarters combat, or customize it with attachments for long-range firing. The removable shoulder stock, barrel extension, and targeting sight improve shooting accuracy, and there's even a flip-down bipod support to aid in balance while shooting from the floor.
Soft Splat Ammo
The gun uses soft splat paper ammo that is designed for safety and performance. These small pellets are aerodynamic in shape and transform into soft tactical ammo after soaking in water for 10 seconds. Once fired, the ammo retains its shape in flight and impacts its target with a soft splat.
Unlike traditional foam projectiles, soft splat paper ammo is biodegradable, offering a non-staining composition for easy cleanup.
Shoots Up to 100 Feet
With its advanced power piston operation, the gun is capable of firing ammo up to 100 feet. The gun holds up to eight rounds of ammo in a quick-loading cartridge. A realistic bolt action lever preps each round in the chamber, while a powerful pull-and-release pump handle fires them away. With safety in mind, the gun comes with a pair of tinted mission glasses to protect the eyes.
Our tester found that the gun's pump handle often misfires. Similarly, the soft splat ammo is prone to sticking in the cartridge, requiring frequent clean outs. Our tester also found that most pellets do not travel more than 75 feet.
Still, our tester found the Shadow Hawk 100 to be a significant step up from conventional foam-pellet toy guns. Its sleek good looks and customizable design are impressive, and its unique ammo travels far.

The gun has a long range. I'm not sure it would actually reach the 100 feet the package promises, but it does have quite a bit of range when fired into our back yard. It has a fun, cool look with an extender piece and two pieces that fold down to make it tripod like a sniper rifle. My son was impressed.
The pellets are called "soft splat." This was a little deceiving as I let him shoot my hand (before he shot one of his sisters), and it was still quite painful. I imagine it is not as bad as the plastic air soft pellets, but it wasn't pleasant. The pellets look like old timey spit wads when they are wet and come out of the gun. They make quite a mess when shot in the house. Of course, the plastic air soft pellets are a mess in the house too when there are thousands of them rolling around the floor.
The box touts "graduate from foam." I suppose this would be a step up from a nerf gun but safer than an air soft pellet gun. My younger daughter, however, had trouble holding it because it is long and has a "kick" when fired. So, I'm not sure how well younger kids could handle it.
Overall, we like the gun. It seems durable and has already been played with pretty hard with no problems. It has the desired level of "coolness" without some of the safety hazards of an air soft pellet gun.
oh yeh, my barrel attachment is slightly (not by much) bent to the right. but thats not toooo bad.
overall its not bad :) its kinda like a 50/50 thing-you could get a really good one or a really bad one...
As I took it out of the package, it looked nice! Dimensions are pretty spot-on and the whole thing feels pretty solid. For 20 bucks, it resembles a real sniper pretty well if you ask me!
Now, onto the functionality. The paper bullet idea is good, but I'm not sure if you could make your own paper wads and shoot them through this. I haven't tried yet, but if it doesn't work like that, it's gonna be spray painted and put on a stand somewhere. No WAY I'm buying paper bullets for 12 bucks. Not in a hundred years. It shoots far as advertised. I don't know about 100 feet...but definitely far. The one thing to realize before you get this is that there's no trigger. That's the biggest downfall for me. HOWEVER, there's a bolt-action reload feature which TOTALLY outweighs the lack of the trigger. You feel like a champion when you pull it forward and back for another round.
The attachments are handy as it can easily look like a shotgun or even an assault rifle if you use the right pieces together. The stands are good, durable. Nothing too bad about this gun aside from the cons mentioned above. If only it had a trigger....
That being said, I would've killed to have something like this as a kid. At my age, it will probably end up being wall art. Regardless, I say give it a try if you're buying it for someone under 13. They'll get a good kick out of it. Just don't get it for your teenage son. He'll probably spray paint it and use it for things you didn't intend. :)

This gun is not a very gun gun. First of all, it only shoots about as far as a Nerf gun, which is not NEARLY 100 feet. Read morePublished on May 23, 2013 by chris
