[QUOTE- DON MCLEAN/] A long, long, time ago... [//QUOTE]


Any way, A long time ago when the RF20 first came out, I remember seeing a commercial. See if this helps:

"The NEW Rapid Fire20 and Nerf RapidFire 50!"
:: Kids run out with guns:: "Look at that! It switches from single shooting to full RAPID FIRE BLASTING!!!!! Get ready for some serious Nerf fun with the Nerf RapidFire 20 and RapidFire 50!!"


At the end of the commercial there was even a PICTURE of an RF50. God I should have taped that commercial.

Obviously it would hold 50 micros instead of just 20.

Anybody Know what I'm talking about?

Yes I do, and goddamnit I woulda bought one instead of my RF20 but the 50 cost twenty more bucks. When I had more money, it was gone. The put the 50 right across from the 20 at my Target. Man, that was like...2-3 years ago, or feels like it anyway.

Ok, did you actually see places for 50 darts on the "RF50"? Never heard of it before, you must be mistaken......

So there is a such thing as a RF50?
I thought it was made-up for those ads on NO.
Cool. Anyone have a picture?

Anyone know of a site that has it? Not to buy, just to drool over. I just Googled it for about twenty minutes and scanned through about one hundred search results-I couldn't find it. I want to see this bad boy! I think I do actually remember it though. Maybe. Or maybe not, but I think I have memories of going to TRU and staring at it and comparing it with the RF20. Man, I want one now...

As I jogged my memory a bit later, I think it only held 30 darts. The turret had three rows, instead of two on the RF20, to place darts.

Actually, my friend cut and glued two PC clips together to make a 20-shot PC. He then cit out the bottom of the PC so that it would fit. I coulda done a better job though. It fed fine, but he usually ran out of air by the 13th shot.

Dude, I'm not on drugs. I SAW this thing on the commercial. I'm fine if you don't believe me, just don't insult me about it. Thank you.

With Respect,

No, I don't.

And apparently, many of us don't care.

cx was telling you, in his own special way, exactly that. If you'd just let it go...

He can say what he wants. If your feelings are hurt, go here. Maybe you'll find more information/ confirmation there. A lot of folks there seem to have all kinds of one-of-a-kind Nerf things that I've never heard of before.

GeneralPrimevil, 2-3 years ago, the Supermaxx series was fizzling out, and the Air Tech series of blasters were making their debut. I'm certain that an RF-50 would have made some appearance somewhere, and/or someone would have mentioned it here, on HQ, or even on NerfOnline/ NerfCenter.

If you'd seen it on a commercial, it must be a production model, not a prototype, because they usually don't put protos in direct advertising (why try to sell something that isn't even in production yet?).

The only place I've ever seen a Rapid Fire 50 mentioned, is on the Google search engine, sponsored links. In fact, they have Rapid Fire 23s, 44s, and 51s too.

I think there's a difference between asking for research help for unsubstantiated information regarding a so-called "limited-release" blaster, and wanting some sort of respect/ protection from flaming for bringing up something that is showing pretty impossible to prove.


Okay, how about this;

Someone show me a picture of this so-called "RF-50", and upon PMing me your mailing address, I will send you, post paid, a brand-new AirTech 2000.

If anyone shows me a Photoshopped/ altered picture in order to deceive me, upon PMing me your mailing address, I will send you, post paid, a box full of my dog's crap from the past three days. With some old parts from a broken AT Jet Squadron thrown in also.

Any takers?

You know how long it would take to load 50 darts and how many pumps it would take to prime it. It's ludicrous....

Come on, people.

You don't like this topic and you're posting in it.

I'll email customer service at Hasbro and find out if what I saw was for real.

If it isn't, sorry for wasting bandwidth.

As I think more and more about this, I realize that my peers were right about me and the title of Worst Memory. There might have been such a thing, but probably not off the drawing boards. The picture on the box front looked alot like the picture on the side of a RF20 box, so I might have gotten confused. I really just don't know anymore. Dammit, you're all making me have to think. I hate that. Quit it. :)

I never heard of it at all. I wonder if it was a joke in the commercial, like stating how far nerf tech will come like those commericals where products do ridiculous things.

I see no reason why boltsniper would be lying about this gun and assume that the last thing he'd hallucinate about would be about a nerf gun.


I for one am glad for boltsniper starting this topic, and will pay $100 for a Rapidfire 50, assuming it exists.

I just realized it after I posted it. Since its a newb, I'm not buying that it exists anymore.

THIRST, you just made my day. PM Piney, maybe he will count that as a RF-50 and you can get some free doggie poo.

HAHAHAHA.

Clean job on photoshopping that other barrel on though. It actually could be possible to mislead a noob.

Besides, I don't think Hasbro would be stupid enough to make a gun that would take over 5 minutes to get battleworthy.
