Does the slam fire mean it primes like a speedload 6 or does it have a return spring so it primes like a maverick, that's what I want to know?
It means slam fire as in alpha trooper or raider, you hold down the trigger and repeatedly prime the blaster and the darts will fire when the priming handle reaches the end of its slide, like the speedload
What I believe he meant was that the maverick has a return spring but the speed load 6 does not. But in any case, the slam fire will be pretty hard to do when you have a beefy spring... And that return spring would be useless with slam fire so I don't think they'll include one.
IT says on the package slamfire so its like the speedload
Slam fire means that you can hold the trigger and repeatedly prime to fire (like the raider or the alpha trooper).

You can't see it clearly, but where it says 'Rotating Barrel' it has the words: 'Flip open for fast reloads'.
Why was the most recent post removed?O.o
Aloy,Hasbro Singapore had to take their video competition poster and info offline to update them... therefore to avoid mis-communication and confusion amongst readers, i took my post offline too.I will re-post the new poster and information once Hasbro Singapore uploads them to their official Facebook Page.
Looks like the strongarm has the internals of a spectre with a speedload 6 slam fire mech... If you guys are going to ask "why speculate that this has spectre internals?" if this was an upgrade to the maverick with just a revamped direct plunger and still rotates the barrel with its trigger pull then slam fire wont work if its that way. Spectre internals rotate the barrel with its priming mech not by its trigger pull then that way slam fire could work... Again guys this is just speculation not a real fact :)))
wow that is amazing, a slamfire maverick!!!!
Hey SGNerf, when do you think the Strongarm and the Firestrike will come out? I know the Firestrike will be released in 2013, but will the Strongarm come out in 2013 as well or are we looking at an early release, which Nerf does all the time? Please reply and thanks.
Boss,So far there isn't any confirmed news on those upcoming models yet, we'll just have to keep a look out for more information about them popping up soon.
On amazon UK, they are already out
SG Nerf,When do Strife and Ruff Cut come out?
Anonymous,No news yet, so far they are still prototypes or pre-production designs (as described in the wired.com article).
SG Nerf, When do you think will the stockade come out in the U.S.? 2012 or 2013? Because I was wanting the Barricade, but I don't want to waste money if it is coming out soon.
Anonymous,From news gathered online so far, it seems the Stockade wouldn't be available in the USA market in 2012 (therefore maybe you'll have to keep a look out for it in 2013).
Sgnerf, do you know hen the elite blasters are coming out in Australia because I'm annoyed that the rest of the world has them and I can't get them
tp,Sorry man, i've no idea... maybe you can check at the OzNerf forum or with the Aussie Nerf bloggers, maybe they might have some info on it.
Anybody have any idea when the strongarm will come out. I tried the maverick and loved it and was about to buy it but then i found out about the strongarm. And does anybody know how much the strongarm will cost?
I bought a strongarm and firestrike at Wal-Mart 2 weeks ago. The strongarm was $13.00USD, and the firestrike was $10.00. The prices are the same as the maverick and nitefinder. The strongarm is so much better than the maverick.
How much does it cost in Singapore?
