Guys, the Scout shot like... 20 feet unmodded with stock darts. With a bit of tinkering, you could get it up to 40-50 with Stefans. Well, THIRST got it to 50, I got it to the trash bin (Just kidding, it's still there somewhere). And this gun appears to be larger, hence HOPEFULLY a larger air chamber. Which means you will have a high-ROF, 50-foot range, PISTOL. It'll be good. Quell your fears.

I already have plans for barreling it. Since the original barrels get wider to accomodate the rubber suction cup, you could have an extra barrel (brass and PETG would probably work best) that comes into the original barrel and has a seal with the original barrel's wider part. you would have to pull the barrel in and out between shots but it would probably shoot alot farther than stock.

Look more like an actual revolver anyway! Interesting gun-nerd story as well, the first revolver ever produced that moved the chamber forward to the barrel to create a better seal with the barrel was the Russian Nagant Revolver '95. Smith and Wesson copy, and it was the .44 magnum of the day, granted it was a .45, but that was enormous for a pistol calibur then.

Anyway. I doubt you could apply the technique used in the above revolver to the Maverick, for one, a seal with the chamber and the air tank would be dificult. But that is DEFINATELY on the right track.

Just to clear up a few things you guys have been wondering about:

The Maverick does not load from the back.

It does attach to the Titan, but does not trigger from the Titan like the Scout.

The Unity Power System is not currently sold in the EU because toy regulations are different in the US and Europe. The N-Strike currently sold in the US cannot be sold in Europe.

And thanks for all the good words. The team is enjoying reading them.

Thanks again for the pic...this gun looks godly

The plunger tube will probably be the same size as the scout, and they probably wont release the N-strike in seperate peaces. The maverick isn't replacing anything, it's just another gun. I dought Hasbro is interested in makeing their guns more powerfull, we are NOT their target audience and they can't sell super high powered guns to 8-12 year-olds.

I personally feel that making their guns capable of shooting twice as far wouldn't mess with their sales at all, but they know what they are doing. Seeing this awesome upcoming pistol makes me wonder if they have a 'larger main weapon functioning along the same theme' in the works perhaps? That would just be the end of all ends ^_^

-I mean, if they made the Titan, which we got to shoot 200ft, doesnt seem like there is much of a need for restraint on their part, as they have tons of ways of scaling down range for the main consumer base of their guns, such as over release valves and bad-darts and air restrictors, can all make it easy enough to sell a medium/low powered gun for kids with the capability of being a highly functional our-kinda-nerfin weap.

chessler, why don't you just order one off ebay or something?

Because the post offices in our country want about 20 Euro if the package comes from America.

My Nite Finder was expensive enough:

8 Euro____Nite FInder
12 Euro___Shipping Costs
20 Euro___Post Office

If it uses megas you can just wrap some duct tape around some 1/2" cpvc and ram that down existing barrel, and repeat that for every barrel.

Thats pretty steep. If thats the case (32 EU for shipping) then spend the money on something you'll be happy as hell with (and don't buy many, and be verra careful when your a' moddin').


Oh, and they fire micros.

That's about $51.59 in America. Damn. Also, the converted NF cost is 6.2 Euro, which is the $8 pricetag here. If you payed 8 Euro for it, then you got ripped, cause that's $10.32 here.

Will there ever be another breechloaded clip rifle again like the Sawtooth? I mean it has side cocking handle and everything.

Many thanks for your time and thought, "chiefthe." Definitely an awesome design the team has put out. Loving the loading design, and the box-muzzle aesthetics kick ass.

I'm wondering: What standards bog down your team's mechanical design process (excluding materials and testing, unless you want to be really nice)? I'm guessing ISO 8124-1 sets the maximum power output and momentum of any exposed moving part, but I'm not sure what else is factored in. If it's too much a bother, much like merely conforming to the standards, that's cool, but any listing/description of the most influential standards would be appreciated.

Again, excellent job, here and in the past, and many thanks for taking time out of your busy life to get the legal authorization to communicate here. Hope this little guy sees excellent sales figures (and minimum complaint)!

One of our primary regulations deals with the kinetic energy density of a projectile that is fired using stored energy (like that of a spring or air). The kinetic energy density is equal to:

KED=(0.5 m v^2)/A

where m is the mass of the projectile, v is the initial velocity and A is the impact area of the projectile. We have to assure that all of our blasters meet a certain value or less for KED.

We can shoot the Titan missle so much further than regular darts because the impact area (ie the dart tip) is so much greater.

Well now we know why Nerf can't make something like our homemades, unless they did a "You must be 18 years or older to purchase" kinda thing.

It is great that there is a representative for Nerf in our community. Cx, I think he/she deserves a title, and maybe the first person here with the Maverick as their avatar.

Though they could go back to using megas, wink, wink. But seriously I really like the looks of it. the revolver part looks like the SM 1000 which I always liked the looks of.

Hmm...although since i heard Hasbro lost the patent for arrows, is there any plans for new ammunition? Perhaps a 1"/1.5" OD projectile, like a super-dart with a massive suction tip? And is the Nerf Team focused on target shooting projects? (The N-Strike was cool with the TV thing, the Tech Targets had a nice gimmick...) I think a Night Strike line would be cool, with lit-up Targets and "Laser" sights (like the nightfinder and eagle eye) would be very cool. Because, don't the gimmicks sell the toys?

Or better yet, rereleasing the Supertech 9000 along with the night strike line. That would be fuggin shweet.
