The Super Soaker XP 250 made by Larami is a mid-sized blaster. It boasted a lever trigger, big pressure chambers, and 4 nozzle varities. This blaster is relatively light for it's size. The color scheme of the classic XP gray, purple, yellow, blue, AND red can be odd to look at sometimes. The resevoir cap is not tethered, so try not to lose it. The 250 barely takes 12 pumps to completely pressurize the blaster! The 70mL pump shaft is gigantic for this blaster! Performance: For an air pressure blaster, this gun is great for performance. Shot time is a good 8 seconds for just about every nozzle until the pressure drops. The 1x, 3x, and shower are all fantastic, however the fan blast is a let-down. It sprays a misty "blast" that disintegrates right in front of you! Great to spray yourself on a hot day, but not water warfare.
The resevoir is fine. It has roughly 2 Liters of water. Because the resevoir is mounted at the back of the blaster, it is a bit back heavy. However, you won't be feeling that very long. With the fantastic pump and pressure chambers, 5 minutes and you'll have to refill again. The resevoir is good, just not Stupendous.
The XP 250 is one of the only Blasters that have lever triggers. Unlike most blasters of it's time that had pull valves, this XP uses a ball valve to open the trigger. Basically, ball valves are somewhat better than pull valves, because they tend to blast stronger. However, ball valves may be hard to open. To fix that problem, Larami made the lever trigger. This trigger ir placed right at the nozzle area, requiring minimal effort to open the valve. However, you might get your hands tangled trying to pull the lever.
Overall, I would recommend the XP 250 to anyone enthusiastic about water warfare, or just someone who wants a good water gun. This blaster has good shot time, soakage, resevoir capacity, Pressure Chamber Capacity, versatility, and range. Believe it or not, the 250 is a very rare blaster, though, and it goes for quite some money. If you have a 250, take care of it!
Super Soaker XP 250 Review By: -g-jiv- | Posted: 20110107
The Super Soaker XP 250 is a very powerful Air-Pressure based Super Soaker. Its firing Chamber holds a good ammount of water. Therefore shoot times are quite long. The Pump is tracked, so you do not have to worry about breaking and strong built. Roughly 70 ml are pressed into the Pressure Chamber each stroke. Just About 12 Strokes filles the Pressure Chamber completely. Furthermore it got 4 useful nozzles:
- 1 X::
- 3 X::
The gun seems to not have a Pressure valve at all. More and more power is required till you know it is full. The Reservoir is also quite big for middle sized water blaster and you can refill about 3,5 times before you need to refill.
The gun is very strong, with good range and lots of soakness. Although it only has a 3 X:: stream as its biggest nozzle, you can soak your opponent quite fast because of big pressure. It does also have a carry strap, which makes it easier to use as primary weapon or as very powerful sidearm.
There is not much to say against the Super Soaker XP 250: As with all air pressure based guns, their stream's range and output is not constant and droppes off in seconds. The most water goes out during the first view seconds. As it was released 1994 it is now(2011) 17 years old and therefore it is quite fragile to breaks. The trigger mechanism is the same as used in the SS 300, but seems to be built more stable. It never broke yet. The whole plastic is rather fragile and it might split up if it is dropped at a hard bottom.
Be careful when using this Soaker and you will be able to defeat lots of other Soaker-users. Due to its big pump-volume, you might also win against some CPS users :)
Reservoir volume: 2675ml

The XP 250 is a medium sized soaker, released 1994. Its specialties are its power and good soakage for an Air Pressure soaker. The XP 250 is the 3rd biggest Air Pressure soaker, making it valuable to many Water Warriors and Collectors.
- Good soakage for an Air Pressure Soaker
- Good power for an Air Pressure Soaker
- A strap that makes caring a second soaker easier
- Long shot time till severe drop off
- Not able to pump and shoot at the same time
