I think it's a nice paintjob, but I guess dry brushing isn't for some people. I think you should try a different color than red/silver/black, like maybe a lush grass green? That would look good.

Do you know why the range is so good? It's weird because it's just like a Recon, but gets awesome range with just a few mods.

I have always liked Ice's PJs and I like this one. And remember all you guys who are flaming ice, no paintjob will ever be perfect. Anyway Ice, great PJ I am loving it.

Why is everyone pissing on Ice's PJ? If he likes it, that's all that matters.

More on topic, I think that thing that clips on to the gun, the one that holds the clip in, can be used on breeches that are meant for clips. It would keep the clip more stable, and possibly eliminate the excess heaviness created by PVC. Hmmm.....

Ice, I think that paintjob looks pretty good. You just have to clean it up a bit and remove all the Nerf logos and you're good to go

The yellow balls are also slightly smaller in diameter than the green ones.

Probably improvements in seals, springs and a bit of airflow work in the chamber. In otherwords, they learned things from thier previous version of this action in the recon and longshot, and improved upon it. It's the same process that occurs with engines. Build one that works, learn from it, then build one that works better.

The slamfire feature should prevent most doublefeeds and jams that can result when trying to fire the recon and longshot quickly without perfect trigger coordination



@Ice Can i ask for a video of left handed operation of the Raider? I just want to see how hard it's gonna be for me to swap out magazines. the magazine won't be in my way, but being on the far side of the gun,changing the magazine might be a pain for lefties, much as the magazine release on the Longshot makes it fall out of favor with lefties

Capt Slug thinks this thread is idiotic. Why did any of you seriously reply to this?

That's the case with cars. With Nerfs, isn't it the other way around? They learn what works, then figure out how to make it cheaper (and lamer.)

Can I fire it? Once?

I can see someone being a right bastard about it.

Me: "Can I fire it? Just once?"

Him: "Sure." (Loads one dart in the magazine, cocks weapon, hands it over.)
