Spectre review

This post was written by Zeeba Eeta, I am just publishing it.


Hello! I am "Zeeba Eata" which is ,with good spelling, Zeebra Eater. Anyway, I will be doing an all around review of Nerf's Spectre Rev-5. Here is a picture of the Spectre Rev-5:

The picture you are looking at, is a modded version of the SR-5. As you can see, there is no visual difference between the unmodded S. Rev-5 and the modded Rev-5. So in HvZ, you might get away with it if you pad the plunger enough.

The range of the gun is average for a handgun. I used 2 types of bullets: Streamlines and Whistler darts.

The results are peculiar. Here is the data:

Streamers: PTG (Parallel to ground, zero degrees elevation) , 28 Ft.

Streamers: ATG (Angled to ground, thirty degrees elevation), 43 feet.

Whistlers: PTG, 31 Ft.

Whistlers: ATG, 42 Ft.

With that, my conclusions on range are, that the Whistlers seemed more effective at a shorter range than at a longer range.

The Streamers are more effective at a farther range, but only slightly better.

Overall, there was little difference between the dart types.

This gun holds less ammo than a maverick, but has slightly better range. It also has attachment capabilities.

The folding stock is a little less sturdy than a recon stock, It collapses nicely.

The barrel attachment has a wider barrel than most, so ranges with or without it don't change. It still improves accuracy, and results in less fishtails.

The Barrel Break Review

Today we are reviewing the Nerf Barrel Break. Currently, these break-action, Double Barrel shotguns are in original and sonic series versions. These are not bad shotguns. It is Nerf's improved version of the BuzzBee Doubleshot, lacking only the shells. The ranges are average (30'). I like the features of this gun, take the dart holder for example, It holds 10 darts in total. The gun is compact, with a sleek design.

Here is a tip for accuracy. If you want the Maximum Accuracy, you want to single the shots out rather than firing both darts at once. Like the Doubleshot, the Barrel Break can single-fire and double-fire as well.

One more thing, the Barrel Break is compatible with most dart types except streamline darts. If you want an Improved Doubleshot, buy the Barrel Break! You won't regret it.

One of my friends sent me this gun for "Repairs". It wouldn't shoot his streamlines. I took one look at the barrel and I knew that this gun was so old, and the barrel so big: It must have been designed to shoot megas.

I opened the gun and, upon further examination, found that the gun didn't use an o-ring, it had some kind of rubber cone. I wrapped that with electrical tape for a better seal. Then I added a Nite Finder spring. Last, I replaced the barrel with about 3 inches of 1/2'' CPVC.

The gun works great, it gets at least 65' with streamlines, and around 80' with darts I designed specifically for this gun. It's RoF is slow, but the guy I did this mod for recently purchased a blowgun and an altered RSCB. If I get another part for him, the RSCB will connect to the gun nicely, thus raising the RoF.

RATINGS (scale of 1 to 5)
Range: 4
RoF (without RSCB): 2
With RSCB: 4
Accuracy: 4
Overall: 4

P.S. I just added more pictures and more mods to the NiteFinder guide.

UPDATE: Today, the kid gave me the top part, it shot arrows, i will rebarrel it, add a recon spring and redo the air seal. I might also add a handle, so it can be used separately.

New Vortex Gun?

A reader from Urban Taggers sent an interesting image of a Nerf Vortex "Lumitron" to the UT blog. 

"It looks just like a Praxis, but with different colour scheme, without a stock and with an 20 round clip.

It's true names of blasters are often different depending on the country but i'm PRETTY sure the Praxis.. is called the Praxis in Germany. The image as you can see is 'Not Final' so it could just be that this was an early image of the Praxis that somehow ended up public. Or it IS an actual repaint. Or... it could be a place holder image and the "Lumitron" is a completely different looking blaster. Speculations!!!"


Thanks again to Urban Tagger for the great inside scoop.

Nerf Gun Rumors

Another post from Urban Taggers:
"what appeared on German Nerf forum Blaster.de was a very cool image of a new N-Strike blaster, the Rayven CS-18. In what looks like the first time another blaster other than the Firefly has opted for glow in the dark darts, it does look pretty cool and the answer to fans' requests for "Nerf should make a SMG" :)

The colour scheme does look abit like N-Strike and Vortex had a love child, but much of this could be due to the fact the box art is clearly "NOT FINAL". That also being said, this is the first time we've seen this, so it sits in the rumour mill till we can confirm or deny. The story behind it this leak though is however does come from a fella asking for info at his local retailer so it's looking pretty accurate thus far."


Thanks to Urban Tagger For the lead

Random Info

For those of you who have been awaiting the Vulcan fix post, I am happy to report that I will be receiving a Vulcan on Monday that is broken, so I can make a video/take in depth pictures of the whole process.

Another rifling update: I found that thin strips of electrical tape can make good rifled darts too, instead of burning a spiral, use thin strips of electrical tape to make the spirals.
