I'm not sure if I should be posting this here, as it seems we traded the freedom to leak new products for getting product releases 24 hrs before facebook....

No, I do realise it's much more complex than that and that maintaining a good relationship with hasbro along with not getting our asses sued is pretty high on the priority list, hence if this breaks any rules please let me know, I'm sorry.

but yes I have 5 CS-18 clips.. I didn't buy them from the guy on US ebay who has a few for sale

there are pics and shit in this thread

http://oznerf.forumo...t1445.htm#15506

I'm really hoping to get a video done soon, but with my internet screwed I wont be able to upload it... but yes I believe I'm one of the 1st english speaking IRC member to have a hands on with these, though I think Kevinericon might have some too...

Anyways check out the thread

Is it much heavier? And is it any harder to hold the gun compared to a super-clip?

Did you get those from here?

If you did, how did you manage to navigate your way through the website and pay for them? I'd love to get some RF-20s from there...

Nice scoop on the CS-18 clips -Aj-!

Interesting to see them loaded into the various N-Strike clip-fed blasters for scale comparison.

Btw, i guess you may have thought of it by now... you have a very rare opportunity to be the first to mod 2 of those CS-18 clips together for a sort of "super-duper" 36-dart clip! :D

Wait, I though hasbro was releasing an 18 dart drum only! :D I actually hate the way the 18 clip looks.

Wow those are some long clips! This is just overkill, especially with the 18 round drum being more compact.

How easy are they to use, despite them being longer than a recon without its attachments?

Try using the bipod on the Longshot now!
I rather just use a 12 round super clip and not have to get my huge ass clip stuck on everything I walk by. Have you found a way to hold more on you then just in the blaster?
I still like the classic 6 round clips better.

A 12-dart clip would've looked pretty cool, but 18 seems like serious overkill. The clip shouldn't ever be longer than the gun (unless the gun was semi-auto, which would be ball-blastingly awesome and will never happen).

This kind of overkill?

It just happened... :P

On topic: These mags look a great upgrade. The extra capacity should offset the necessary loading time somewhat. I know my HvZ squad will be happy. Does anyone know the inner dimensions of these?

I was made aware of their availability through them appearing on TB, however I got them through other channels, a business I work for has mandarin speaking staff and they have relatives still in the mainland..


Unless they were stolen from the factory or something like that, I don't think Hasbro is going to mind. As long as they're really being produced and shipped, your comments will reflect a genuine product. Just maybe via a "supply chain" that's not fully authorized. Were they packaged? I don't see any pics including packaging.


I really have no idea how legally they were obtained hence why I'm a little :/ about posting it on the net. They did not come in any official packaging.

Btw, i guess you may have thought of it by now... you have a very rare opportunity to be the first to mod 2 of those CS-18 clips together for a sort of "super-duper" 36-dart clip! :P


We joined 2 with a flip clip.... it was hilarious... I'll be uploading that photo to the thread on Oznerf later

mmm... because that bipod was just soooooo useful before hand....

If you're getting your clip stuck on things then I think you're holding your blaster wrong, and yeah I an easily able to store more on my person..

I have a few different pouches which can hold between 1-4 of these 18 rnd clips, I can carry two on my person very easily along with one in the blaster. that is the equivalent of 9 6 shot clips..... it is much more convenient to me to carry 3 clips as opposed to 9

Finally.. Drums jam. These don't.

You can carry 54 darts with those :P Good job, those are sick. Although, they do seem like overkill. I like the 12-shot length, not the 18-shot length...

I have to question whether these are actually produced by/for Nerf, and whether someone else is making them.

They probably are, but then again they might not. This could be checked by comparing the top of the clip where hasbro writes their "for use with streamlines only" warning.

AJ, would you mind checking on this? They probably are legit considering that leaked spartan picture showed an 18 round clip in the gun, but it couldn't hurt to check.

And if they aren't legit, who cares? As long as they work.

Well if they're not actually Nerf, they don't break the rules. I'm still pretty sure the Spartan or Stampede maybe, will have something that allows 50 rounds, since both Target and Amazon accidentally listed it that way.
