If anyone has an archive of the RevShot writeup from NerfRevolution could they post a link to it? It would be a shame to lose the designs to one of the coolest homemades forever.

Perhaps an owner of one could disassemble theirs and post pictures? If you own one, you really should.


Given the exodus from the forums to Fuckbook, this would be a great way to solidify what Nerfhaven has left to offer. We, as a community, need a safe repository for our information and basic knowledge. Even if NH is reduced to a library status, it needs to have reliability and completeness.

I don't own one but hopefully someone who does will see this thread. Also I'm pretty sure it needed a custom lathed part as well. We really should limit all Nerf stuff to the Haven, it really sucks that people are going to Facebook.

That'll be an awesome addition to nerfhaven's library. Honestly I think it's more effective than a pumpsnap. Higher capacity and consistent shots.

I disagree , yea its nice but it has the plunger volume of a longshot. The brass breach can sometimes chop darts and mis feed and reloading mags isn't fast at all. Sure you could carry pre loaded mags but that's a pain (In my opinion). I would take a hoppered snap/rainbow pump over a rev shot any day. There is a reason people stopped making them.

Yeah there are some reliability issues, I figured anyone using one would carry a few 18 clips with them on a vest or something. Maybe we should take a look at the design and see if there's any room for improvement (Larger PT?). Also sometimes you can fail to prime the pumpsnap all the way if you're tired near the end of a war, but the shorter draw of the RevShot usually avoids that. There are also less complicated parts on a Pumpsnap, I still have no idea how the RevShot works.

I'd rather have a pocket full darts and a hopper over a vest full of mags. The mags have to be modded if you want to shoot stefan darts too, witch is a pain in the ass. Dont get me wrong I love my rev shot, iv put a lot of time into tuning it. I even made specific darts for it, but doesn't fit my play style.
