If they don't sell extra chain, i'll be pretty ticked. This thing sounds perfect for indoors. Finnally, a new gun that DOESN'T use streamlines. My asaultees won't let me use stefans.

We'll find out soon enough, but I'm highly doubting that they're going to bother with multiple barrels. That would be a great deal of plastic to waste and more moving parts to add. A chain-gun configuration (single barrel) is more likely.
Hasbro has screwed up the usage of many real firearm terms used for the wrong kind of parts before (Clips =/= Magazines being one example) so don't assume they're using accurate terminology.

I think it will be a single barrel gun too but a gatling gun would be pimpin.

Ah good, atleast it's not the traditional chain design. Beyond that I'm anticipating seeing what the internals are like.

All I can say is wow. The Vulcan looks extremly bulky. But if it is effective then it might be worth buying one. I also noticed they mentioned some other nerf blasters.

SPECULATION:the front doesn't have room for flywheels, Maybe if its an airsoft style plunger it could be replaced with an Nf or TTG tube to get a decent range, high ammo and ROF (atleast till you run out of ammo) manual gun? Or maybe the chain and its mechanism could be placed on a different gun?

That thing looks hard to reload, which is never good in Nerf warfare. Of course, the ammo box could be replaceable a-la-Longshot

There aren't any obvious areas for wheels, from what I can see, and that is a good sign. Hopefully the box will prevent jams and the barrel seems long, which might be a sign that the darts can at least go through that at a decent speed.

No no, Its chain fed, See how on top parts of it are orange? Looks like to reload you open those parts and place the chain on some kind of mechanism and close it, Like real heavy MG's. Maybe.

Yes, but some Light Machine Guns use a box like the one seen to hold the chain.

The box that holds the chain means, without rather heavy modding and cutting and a possible waste of forty bucks, means that it probably only holds one chain. Which sucks

Looks to be about 3-5 nitefinders long, if the rails are the same. That's like, what, a longshot and a half or a little less?

And Christmas is a long way away there buddy, but, i guess patience is the key.

Unless the chain breaks into smaller, shorter chains.

It's anywhere from 24? to 28? inches based on the dimensions I've measured of the distance from the rail stop to the little spring-loaded rail catch. This measurement comes from the same integration rail that's on the underside of the faux barrel attachment for the Recon.

I can't find anything else to measure from on the image and it's pretty hard to gauge taking into account perspective if there's any kind of focal distortion, although it's not terribly distorted so the margin of error isn't too bad.

Which still would mean that it would only hold 25 darts, right?
