So a friend of mine found three old razor fins in her basement and she said she wouldn't mind selling one to me. I've never used the gun, so I'm just wondering if it can ever me any good? Deatails?

When you die, if you get a choice between going to regular heaven or pie heaven, choose pie heaven. It might be a trick, but if it's not, mmmmmmm, boy

Well, the short answer is Yes, they suck pretty bad. But you can do some extensive mods and they're a nice little gimmicky weapon that goes about 50 ft.

Yeah, at ECNO Rambo brought a modded razor fin, which he had bought from NerfKing,and it wasnt that bad. Cut down, its definatly a decent sidearm you could lend out. Offer him $4, any more and you might as well get an NF.

It's decent, I wouldn't call it good, and I wouldn't call it bad.

It has three huge problems, barrels that are plastic swiss cheese, vinyl tubing connecting the plunger tube to the barrels, and the barrels are epoxied into the case.

It's got a weak spring too but that's nothing a bungie can't handle.

Haze... You disapoint me. You got it all wrong... It was 2 Razor Fins and a Manta, which might I add is freakin sweet. Anyway I don't really like the Razor fin... Looks gwoss and the whole plunger under the handle bothers me. Any hanging out at Janets... And guess who showed up? Scott and Stalker.... I laughed the entire nite. Scott looked really "hungry" ZING!

Mike, shut up. I swear there were three, whatever. Leave the inside jokes off the board.

No, they're not.

For some odd reason I actually tried to be helpful to this kid at NHQ:

"The Razor Fin has a tiny plunger tube, and the mechanism that switches the barrels greatly restricts the airflow. I doubt you can get more than 30-40 feet if you leave the barrel switching mech on, so I'd suggest ripping it off and single barreling it.

The problem with single barreling it though is that you'd have to connect the barrel to the plunger tube with some kind of tubing because otherwise the barrel will stick out of the top of the gun. Of course, by changing the airflow you will lose some pressure, which is already pretty abysmal. You'll also need to either replace the spring or add rubber bands because the stock spring is extremely weak.

Once that is all said and done, you'll have to deal with firing the gun with the weird trigger mechanism, and cocking it from the bottom of the handle, which is also quite inconvenient. All that work for a gun that can maybe get 45 feet on a good dart? Not worth it.

What I ended up doing with my Razor Fin was hacking off all of the gun except the handle, which held the plunger tube, and taping/glueing a crayola barrel directly onto the plunger tube. I had planned on integrating or somehow adding this little gun to one of my primary guns to act as a last-resort backup shot, but never got around to it.

In short, give up on your Razor Fin and dish out the 7 bucks needed for a NiteFinder." -Me at NHQ

I hope that answers your question if you should buy 'em or not.
