1) Pic of you holding it so we can get the proportions. Nerf guns, made for kids, do not like some of our hands.

2) Ranges.

3) Number of Pumps.

4) I have more, but I'm going to give other people a turn.

just tested the pumps: about 15 will cover you.


Range: 37 ft. straight, 45 ft. arched.

Length: 21 inches long. I'm 20, almost 6 feet tall and my hands are average size for that height. Extremely comfortable, plenty of room left. Great gun. Best in years, if ever.

Obviously, you got it in the store. So they are out there.

Bastard.

Scratch that, LUCKY bastard. :blink:

I'm not sure if you also own a Powerclip, CC, but if you do, could you shed some light as if it's the same design, or a modification/ improvement over the 1st gen (powerclip). Some side by side pics wouldn't hurt, either.

Good on ya. Enjoy.

sorry, no internals. I won't be opening up my gun because I'm bad at modding. The more complex guns always give me problems when I put them back together.

The clips hold ten shots. The look like sleeker versions of the Powerclip clips. have restrictors and polls at the back of each hole. Comes with two clips.

This sounds great! Just in time with my Birthday, perhaps I should order one online with some of my Birthday money, I'll think about it.

The removable clips and hot red colour have made me want to buy it most! :blink:

Is there a holder on the side of the gun for another clip? It looks like, in the pic showing the kid shooting one on the box, that it's got two clips attached to the gun.

Thanks for the info. To anyone with Powerclips wishing to sell them - :blink:

I didn't get it in the store either; it's from Walmart.com. Pics of it with Powerclip and its clip and the PC's side by side:

SKEET.

37 feet for a stock rapid fire gun is very nice. Once you get those poles out, you should get even more range. Thanks a lot for putting up pictures Captain.

Does it look like it has a lot of modding potential? When did you order it and when did you get it?

Fastest shipping I've ever had from an online retailer. I ordered it two days ago. Shipped yesterday, arrived today. The warehouse must be nearby. It also must mean they're going to start showing up in stores soon. I'm in SoCal; start checkin your stores.

As for modding potential, I'm not good at spotting it, but it looks like it might be tough. Don' ttake my word; wait until a more experienced modder gets it and grab their opinion.

That thing is Awesome!

1) Does it have a good pump or a shit pump like the one on the Hornet?

2) You can open up the clip and remove the air restrictors, right?

3) How loud is it?

4) How fast does it fire the whole clip?

5) Is it fairly accurate, or do the darts fly out in random directions?

6) Am I an ass for asking so many questions?

1. Pump is solid; about like the Scout.

2. Looks like you can take the restrictors out without a lot of trouble.

3. Not too loud; about as loud as a PC

4. Fires very fast. A second or two to empty the clip.

5. As accurate as it could be firing that fast and hard.


Also: for some reason, it won't fire when the clip isn't in the gun. Maybe to keep the air locked in. It seems to be much sturdier in terms of maintaining its air supply vis-a-vis the PC.

The scout doesn't have a pump...

Sounds great otherwise, I'll have to get one or two.

EDIT - grammar

By the size of the stock/fake airtank, the air bladder seems like it's rather large.

Just a thought - would it be possible to pump the gun enough for two whole clips, or does the overpressure release thing kick in before that?

Sorry, I did mean Hornet. I thought you were referring to the old Max Force Hornet Six Shooter. I always confuse the Scout, the N-Strike Hornet, and the Maxforce Hornet.

1)IF you pump it, does it hold enough air to fire BOTH clips, or do you have to pump between mag-switches?

2) Are the clips interchangeable with a powerclip, or vice-versa?

3) Can we get a pic of you holding it, so we can get a general idea: the stock looks too short to be usable

4) Can we get some internal pics? You said you're bad at modding, but taking a gun apart and taking a picture isn't really 'modding', and it isn't very difficult.

5) When the clips are empty, do they fall out, are they ejected, or do you ahve to pull them out?

6) How secure are the clips? As in, if you hold it upside down, will they fall out?

7) How many pumps does it take to prime for 10 shots? How many pumps does it take before the over-pressure release engages (Inc ase you don't know, just pump until you hear the gun 'leaking' air a bit after each pump)?

8) Is the plastic the same kind that they've been using on the Crossfire and the Dart Tag Set?

7) I noticed it uses the double-fingereg trigger like all the other dart-tag guns. Does the trigger rotate upwards like the Powerclip, or is it a straight-back pull?


Thank you for your time. It certainly must be a hassle to answer all these questions.

EDIT: I forgot: what shipment method did you use? The standard, the 2-3 day, or the next-day shipping?



Sincereley,
Pat

1. Holds enough air for both clips, but you have to be pretty exact with your trigger timing because the air blows out quickly.

2. The clips do not fit in the PC or vice versa.

3. it's a pain to take more pictures; but the stock is adequate.

4. Not opening the gun primarily because it takes so long, but also because I always screw up the resealing.

5. You pull out the clips.

6. Clips lock in pretty well. Only if you give it an extremely sharp jerk upwards while holding it upside down will the clip fall out. It will stay in all cases it seems.

7. 10 shots about 12-16 I'd say; I give it 15 and it works fine. It maxes out at about 25 pumps.

8. The plastic feels like the other Dart Tags, but the overall feel is that of an N-Strike weapon.

9. Trigger goes straight back.

Answer to edit: I chose the regular shipping method. It was unbelievably fast for being the standard method.

Do you live in texas? That would help explain the uber-fast shipping, since the warehouse is in Dallas.
