  1. I never noticed how bad Pop Sci analysis was.

    Darts are larger to reduce the "sting" for little kids, not to go faster (anything that shoots micros 100 ft is going to noticeably sting).

    And Nerf barrels are cosmetic.

    Still, that plunger draw is huge. Though there doesn't seem to be enough space in the end for the plunger rod, which either means some sort of minimal plunger rod system, or a new plunger system.

    Lastly, inb4 bolt sled breakage.

  2. Has anyone actually tested this blaster to see if the ranges that they claim are true?

      Well, its more valuable as a collectable item, so its better to just keep it new-in-box for display or sell it to another collector at a good price... the blaster isn't really efficient for actual Nerf games anyways (there are many other newer blasters that are more effective), its value is mainly as a collectors item.

      That's the listed overseas pricing in US dollars and UK pound currency... the price in Singapore will be higher and based on Singapore dollars (actual price will depend on local retailers).

  11. This blaster is getting panned on Amazon. Seems like there's some serious problem with the darts being too soft and jamming up
