jwasko et al. - In the event that the picture OMC has reflects the actual unit, it is obviously not to scale, and your use of the actual LS clip to establish scale doesn't much matter since your initial numbers were flawed. The clip, as shown, is in fact 19.4 mm, not 14.5, and the "slide" is 23.99 mm, not 17. Not that it much matters, as OMC said, it is pure speculation.

Although why would we multiply by 17 and then divide by 14.5? Why not just multiply by 1.1724? :P Only kidding, doesn't matter.



I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "to scale." I mean, it's a picture, right? So, even though it's not actual size, all of the lengths should be some fraction of the real lengths. Unless I'm completely missing something, here...

As to our differing measurements, it's probably a difference in monitor size/resolution/ some-other-computer-thing-I-know-nothing-about. "Proof:" If you divide 23.99 by 19.4, you get 1.24, which is quite close to 1.17. I blame the difference in ratios on errors in measurement...or something. In any case, the difference overall would only be an added 0.22" in the length of the slide motion. And that's only good, right?

So, satisfied, Mr. Perfection? (just kidding)

And sorry, OMC, for bringing this up. I just thought that it would give us some perspective on the size of the thing. I didn't expect 3 people to post near-simultaneously with the same info.

Sweet, I didn't know you were in on such things, OMC.

What do these hasbro guys think of our little obsession here?

That's why NerfHaven is the best.


We have a WHOLE team of "insiders" who are privy to Hasbro's HQ, and believe it or not, they have to exhibit a lot of restraint to NOT tell you guys anything until the Hasbro suits tell them it's okay to pre-release information.


Which, as this thread aptly demonstrates, generates a flurry of busybody activity of speculators, know-it-alls, and excited young Nerfers who do, in fact, get all torqued up about the new releases.


The Disk Shot wasn't that bad, although it wasn't anything to dance about. This will be a pleasant surprise....hopefully maybe for the Christmas season? :lol:

Not to be negetive but...
The gun itself without the marvalous accessories is a basic pistol with a clip. Wouldn't that mean the spring is as the size of the Nitefinder? The darts are the same ones as the Longshot right?
It's a link to google......you idiots are worse than the spammers.

I already have an idea on a possible mod. You know those tabs that hold the cocking rod on the maverick? Any more powerful spring breaks them.

So...

What if you drove a wood screw through the return spring, dremelled off most of the threads, and put a nut on the other side? Then it could have a heavier spring without damaging anything.

And the one guy's acclaimed 100' nitefinder mod, if this new RC uses the same basic type of plunger head as the NF, you could also drive a machine screw in the place of the stock plunger head screw, thus allowing it to handle even more power.

This is completely based on speculation and if I know hasbro, some mutilated air restrictor or something will prevent it, but heck, I have enough time on my hands to think of these things.

Ok, Did anyone notice that the longshot clips are yellow and this Rc's clips are orange? The longshot clips have a little extra space between the end of the darts and the end of the clip. The Rc's clips may be SLIGHTLY smaller.

pros:

1. Looks awesome
2. Smaller
3. Customization of parts
4. This+at2k guts=awesomeness
5. Good for assassins

Cons:

1. Looks weak
2. May have limited accessories
3. Pistol form looks bulky (for a pistol)

Or... It could simply be that they used a DIFFERENT COLOR PLASTIC in their Injection Molder... just a Thought... a logical one.

Great thread OMC. Thanks for heads up.

Here's my size estimate, assuming the clip is the same size as the LS, posted on my Blog, Dragonfly Views.

I'm also working a mini-booklet presenting some thoughts on where I think Nerf Wars should head. It started as planned post for Nerf Haven and took on a life of it's own. i think guys here will enjoy it. I hope to finish it soon.

I wonder why Hasbro has released many air guns as of late. But the new gun looks awesome kinda. I wonder if there will be different packages like, just the pistol and a clip, and then the whole shebang.
