      Oh man! I had 2 of those!!

      The Water Hawk and the AK Centerfire! I remeber those commercials. At the end, the kids aimed the guns at the camera and soaked them!!!

      They wouldn't dream of making these, nowadays.

      Thanks for starting this topic. I had forgotten the name of who made those things for eons.

          Yup, the battery powered guns used to be really popular before Super Soakers basically made them obsolete. For a while, you could still get them in crazy bright colors but eventually they got phased out since they looked too realistic. I had a couple made by Larami mentioned in an old thread. Hell, I remember bringing my uzi to school once for Halloween. Think that would fly today?

                From what I remember, there was one fundamental flaw to all those things:

                Mine used to leak water from the magazine into the battery compartment.

                The magazines used the same method as the old school water pistol to seal in the water (that little plastic tab that sealed a giant hole). Not to mention the battery compartment wasn't watertight.

                There's one on ebay going for $200 - MIB (buy it now price)
