Starting off the new Nerf Vortex Series is the Nerf Vortex Proton!
The Nerf Proton uses a spring powered launcher mechanism that fires foam discs.
It operates on a "Quick Snap-Load" system whereby its disc loading sled is pulled backwards to open up the loading compartment, this action also primes the blaster. To close the disc loading sled, simply push a switch on the side and the sled will move forward, then pull the trigger to fire.
The foam discs comprise of a flexible silicone rubber cap shaped core with a ring of soft foam surrounding it. Nerf refers to this foam disc design as "XLR Tech".
The blaster comes packaged with 3 x Vortex foam discs. It also has a tactical rail which is compatible with N-Strike accessories.
Average stock range is around 55-65ft.
