Wouldn't Hasbro mention that kind of thing to our representatives? Just a thought.

Well, it's definitely good news. I'm not going to spurt over things quite yet, because I'm still skeptical as to the complexity of the LS and if we are going to rely on stock performance only. It looks like it would be a bitch to mod, but it has a very nice stock appearance.

The Magstrike to me looks a lot like a Blastfire with a clip. Only one more shot and a little airtank/stock combo. Surely, it's going to be a hit among the community. I don't think the PC is going to go out of style though. There's going to be plenty of others that prefer 4 more shots to the stock & airtank. I know that would likely pertain to me. However, I do intend to invest in the Magstrike.

Wow, I'm gone for 2 days and a 9-page topic springs up on me. Thanks to OMC, Groove, and Talio for bringing us the latest chapter in the Gospel of Nerf!

Ummm, the Magstrike holds ten bullets, not six.

Seeing as it is to be used as a stock and it is supposed to protect a rather fragile piece of rubber and that hasbro isn't stupid you can bet that it is made of hard plastic.

Yes, the stock that houses the bladder is solid plastic.

My bad. In that case, there won't be a shot preference. There's just going to be a sentiment preference....

Nerf is on a roll for the last few years. I remember back when the Air Techs were out and everyone thought it was over. Nerf is better now than it ever has been. There were some great guns back in the day, but there were so many more clunkers among the good guns. These days, the clunkers like the Firefly are still badass and more functional than the shitty guns of ten years ago.

Your right, Captain, it appears that Hasbro is adding more and more to Dart Tag and the regular nerf line as well. First the original Dart Tag blasters, then the Crossfire, and now the Magstrike (which looks rediculously sexy!)? I wonder how much more will be added to the Dart Tag line? Obviously nobody can answer that.
I wonder if Hasbro is starting to re-release some of the good nerf guns?
The Longshot if you ask me looks like it would be a Defender T-3 be cause it's got that other gun attachment underneath it. Looks pretty neat, but not exactly what I had in mind

Oh, and back to the Dart Tag topic, does anyone actually use the Dart Tag vests and that other stuff in any real nerf wars?

Well, I use the vests as protection because darts don't hurt as much when they hit.

Anyways, Hasbro must be trying to expand on the N-Strike and Dart Tag lines to make them creditable so they appeal to older age groups, therefore making more money. HOW EVIL AND INGENIUS! But I think that since the 2 lines of Nerf have been doing well, Hasbro would think it a waste of money to create another line, until the lines of guns die out.

its not quite a clip, but tell me then, what is the maverick?

it's just a little bit bulkier than a clip, and you can trust that nerf is going to stick with the revolver style they're using with so many guns. a clip pistol isn't far off, but not quite yet.

I think they should make nerf guns with nerf brand pressure tanks in which you buy before. this would make money for them because people like us would keep buying more canisters. (like c02)
also, i think they should make a gun where it is fully automatic but there is 20 barrells, where you have to cock eahc barrell to go full auto. this way, it wouldn't run out of air on the last shots and it would be same range on each!

The thing is that the maverick turret cannot be taken out a you put in another one. Thats the best part about clips.

Some people have modified their Mavericks so that the Turret is fully removeable, so it works sort of like a clip.

I think it would be Awesome if they re-released some of the old belt-fed Machine guns, like the Chainblazer or Razor Beast

Thanks.

But back on topic.

Since the plastic is used to protect the air bladder would that mean that we could replace it?

Oh, and back to the Dart Tag topic, does anyone actually use the Dart Tag vests and that other stuff in any real nerf wars?

Kind of. I run a Live Action Roleplaying game that uses the DartTag darts, but home-made felt vests. That way, you dont have to buy a dart tag set to play. You can make the vests for about $1.50 worth of felt. It's really good for live combat roleplaying because you get the safety of nerf with the visual cues of paintball, so there is little need for out-of-character calls, safety masks, or medical time outs.

Anyway, the new guns look awesome. Im kind of bummed that the LongShot won't be compatible with Dart Tag darts, though. The PC re-make, however, looks great!
