Some Raiders arrived in South Australia (prematurely) and I managed to bag 2 on Friday. They are rather pricey in Aus ($74.99) But I thought what they hell, I wanted that clip bad. From chatting with the Toyworld staff it seems they weren't meant to be released till late September/October and that this was minor mistake or something on Hasbro's behalf.

Who cares really? lets get on with it...

I took some footage of the gun, assembly etc and will be making a few vids, the first, a general review, is up now soon on youtube. I hope you find it a step up from the regular "13 yr old with a webcam" affair.

EDIT: YOUTUBE VID UP...


LINK

Overall it's a decent gun, as we've all agreed on it is virtually a Recon mounted sideways. The grips and the pump action feel very sturdy, as does the stock (surprisingly), because of the 'slam fire' mode the trigger pull is quite long but, eh so what? is anybody with this gun going to be looking for, or be able to utilise, that kind of precision?

The stock has 4 settings

1 - midget
2- 1/2 midget
3- 1/4 midget
4 - Semi-normal size person

but I guess we should all remember the actual target age of these guns (pretty sure its not 6' 3" 20y/o ,males... <_< )

The gun is a toy.. but the clip is it and a bit. Seriously.. hats off to Hasbro, it has worked flawlessly for me and it feels nice and solid. By they time you're halfway through the clip you feel as though it should be empty, simply because you're not used to this many darts in a longshot!

As Ice has put up videos and pics already I realise I'm not breaking any ground here, but I think mine might be a bit nicer quality. I plan to put up a vid with opening/assembly footage and a short vid on the clip.. rather than roll it all into one horrendously long video.

oh also.. I HAVE ONE FOR SALE... yup you heard right, I'll post a link to the ebay auction in a trading thread, if someone is willing to pay a ridiculous amount for it (like ICE did) then I guess you can PM me but I wont hold my breath and it'll be on EBAY in 2 or so days probably (with a reasonable starting bid). I WILL POST WORLDWIDE.

0k enough whoring PHOTO TIME (Images are 1024 x 786 (17" Monitor standard) if this is to big let me know)

Given that there are already a lot of photos floating around I'll just post a few ones I deem at least 'vaguely interesting'

A close up of the digi cam... it's so effective you almost can't see it :(

The much anticipated dead space in the stock, which people are already planning spring additions for...

A layout showing all the compatible accessories I had.. for the ultra 'Tacticool' look..... :rolleyes:

And finally a few semi-'arty' shots... not sure if they're useful but you know... they look nice....

OK so thats me done... hope you enjoy. I'll edit in the link to the youtube video when it finally finishes loading, and for the love of god NO-ONE QUOTE THIS ENTIRE POST, it would just be cruel....

Ha ha. I like how Nerf is taking our ideas, they're so much better!
Double clip, pump-action and clipped, stock that can be adjusted to more than one spot...
How sturdy is the stock lock, can you whack it in with a powerful enough blow?

Seems pretty sturdy, I cant force it in when it's locked, and it hasn't magically 'unlocked' on me yet like the longshot stock...

If you really hit it hard you might but that kind of blow is not something you'd intentionally give out to a blaster..

Nerf brings everyone together until a dart hits somebody in the eye. Then the hospital trip brings everyone together again.

I'm struggling to understand how this is any different from a thread by Ice that was made like a month ago. I would suggest you enlighten me if you want it to continue.

I believe the following quote somewhat answers this..


Very nice video and pictures.

I can tell you put forth a lot of effort and thought into the making of those. It's much appreciated.



My pictures are in focus, clear concise shots.. I dont mean to bash but ICE cant seam to hold a camera still to save his life, also my video is edited, clear. concise and relevant.. not a rambling 7 minute Effeminate replete with millions of dry fires, nerdgasms and repeated mentions of "SO MUCH ENERGY"

Shit Talio I even named the thread so it wouldn't piss you off, I know you've been mighty active with the magical padlock and banhammer of recent, but I think this thread has got to be of higher quality than the "semi-auto" or "best gun" shit you usually punish for...

Clear internals of clip are on the way, Its 9am here I have a big day of uni ahead they'll be up tonight (if this is still around)

Hasbro copied us with the "N- Strike Flip Clip." I can't wait till they start making minus bows (-bow)

Edit- Someone beat me to it with the flip clip

Nicely done mate, i'm hoping that the next time we meet we can have a raider vs raider round.
I picked one up last friday and i'm yet to remove the restrictors.

This video and review is better solely because he has an Australian accent. Therefore, everything is sexier.

You'll do a lot better if you spread the lips with the front. Trying to wriggle the back in there first seems a bit counterintuitive.

I'm not sure if anyone has asked this already but how exactly do you load the Barrel drum clip? Is it loaded just like the 6 shot clips or do they have a pannel that comes off?

I loved the video, and how you don't support shirtless pre-teens. More power to you.

On to the gun, I now want one even more. If honestly looks pretty nice without the stock, and would make a great rushing gun as a compliment to my 1500.

It says they are out of stock which usually means that they haven't gotten them in stock yet if they haven't been recently put on clearance.

not easily. I mean if it was something you wanted to do more than anything in the world then I'm sure you would find a way... but basically no..it would lack sturdyness and the clip design is quite intricate.

Clip internals up tonight, sorry for the delay I ended up not getting to bed sunday night and was up for 34 hrs straight.. so I needed sleep last night to say the least

cheers

I'm sorry, I felt stupid after I asked if it would be possible to relocate the priming mechanism so I could have a side loading Recon...

However what you're asking for is just that. A recon. A Raider with a bottom loading clip is a Recon.
