    Found this at Target, been looking for it for a while now, got it for 30 dollaroos.

    It's very solidly packed, so don't panic if you've got the last one and it looks a bit shaken. It comes with the gun itself, an 18 Round drum mag, darts and instruction manual. The drum magazine is fairly small, a good balance between capacity and size.

    Out of the box, it has an effective range(Range without arcing) of 5 metres (Depending on dart quality) and a range(Non-angled) of somewhat 9-11 metres. In my 2 days of constant shooting, I've never had this gun jam once. I've also used the drum mag in my aged Recon and again, no jamming, regardless of dart quality. During slam fire, the gun performs much much better, hitting an effective range of maybe 5.5 to 6 metres and 12 metres plus altogether.

    This gun is a work of art, even if it's really just the love child of the Recon and Raider it out-performs both guns in terms of range, firepower and stealth, this gun is much quieter. The low range makes it perfect for CQB situations much like the Recon and Maverick. I've had a look at the internals and to me, there is't much to do with basic tools besides an AR removal(Note that the AT AR allows more air through), brass barreling, spring compression and spring replacement.

    Usage and storage tips:
    - If the trigger feels as though it's not working, hold the priming slide forward
    - It's best to attach a stock to the gun for stability, it will come in handy for slam firing
    - Best for CQB situations, due to very low chance of jamming, you could easily go through an entire battle on this gun alone

    - When storing, it's best to discharge all rounds and leave the magazine inside the gun, this removes all strain on the spring inside the mag and the plunger. You could also remove the mag, and manually put a bullet in the chamber yourself, and then fire it off.
    - (No-brainer) Leave magazines empty or with only one dart sitting in it, it'll ensure a long lifespan

    Great gun, definitely worth the 30 dollars and run around and very fun to shoot.

    Mine just has simple mods - AR removal, plunger tube padded, and spring replaced with a BT spring. It shoots about 35-45 feet at flat angle.

    This has been mentioned before, from DealExtreme. Check this following link, there are a number of reflex gun scopes available for relatively cheap prices. Way way more tacticool than Nerf Pinpoint Sight. But beware these scopes don't sit securely on the tactical rail, I need to file and hot glue the tactical rail.

    which one? which of the reflex scopes?

    This one?
    1*35 Reflex Laser Sight Rifle Scope (Red + Green Laser Configurable)

    or this one?

    1*45 Reflex Laser Sight Rifle Scope (Red + Green Laser Configurable)

    maybe this one?

    BSA 1*30 Reflex Laser Sight Rifle Scope (Red + Green Laser Configurable)


    By the way Akimbo, any troubles getting it through customs?

    Yeah i have seen these things at wars and they are smaller than i expected. But they are also awesome because of the rapid fire and the ability to use a stock. Better than the raider too.

    I'm buying one after i single my BBUMB

    This gun is ridiculously powerful... You'd think it had a stock AR removal it shoots so far. Definitely getting it, my friend has it and I tried it with my stampede clips and it looks far better. Anyway, great buy, would definitely recommend it.
    PS it doesnt come with a stock, so unless you have a recon, raider or spectre, tough luck.

    I do love this gun, it improves over the raider in every way (lighter, better mechanics, 20 dart drum that doesn't screw up as much, cheaper, shoots further) and at $23-$30 shelf price is an absolute steal.

    I would have to say that it is the best STOCK gun you can get. And one of the best guns to have in a HvZ event.

    The only downside of the gun is that it doesn't come with a stock out of the box.

    I've been looking at the AR of this one, and it looks like Longshot/Nitefinder than the Recon. I wonder which one would be more cost-effective for Hasbro to make...

    LOL killerbunny... Anyway what I want to know about this blaster is, what's more worth, out from the box? The clip or the actual Blaster? Or is this like the case of the Raider where everyone bought one for the Drum Mag.

    Definitely the gun is worth more, I've had it months now, it's never jammed, EVER. It's like, a nerf AK-47, minus the firepower. The drum mag is certainly useful though

    If you're keeping to stock stuff only, I'd vote for the gun. If you're more into modding blasters, possibly the drum. All I can say for sure is that it's the only gun I've got two of.

    While I'm here, since it's the only gun I've got two of, I noticed something. Both of them are unmodded, one of them fires with a muffled *thud* type sound, total range with streamlines is about 8 or so metres, maybe a bit less. The other one goes about 10-11 metres, and when you fire it you can hear the spring vibrate a bit. What's everyone been getting with their ranges, and what sound do you hear when it fires?

    10-12m ranges from mine, normally. It's also pretty accurate. I'm liking the muffled thud that comes from the plunger, then the spring vibrating.

    I added a BT spring to mine and its shooting as far as a AR removed/springed/o-ringed raider. AT still has AR intact.

    definitely my favorite blaster besides the longshot.

    Just got oxymoron's AT, and with the AR removed it's amazing. I added my own type of powerstock and it's pretty good. I used to own a Raider, and it's amazing how this one feels so much lighter. I also had a Recon, and vertical fed clips are just so much more balanced

    I have only seen the Alpha Trooper and have not used it yet.

    However I plan on buying it soon all I know is that it is a much much much better alternative to the Raider.

    The smaller drum seems a little more efficiant than the bulky raider drum as well.

    It's the same internals as the Raider, so logically, they're going to jam the same amount of times.

    60% of the cost of a Raider is the drum mag.

    Not necessarily, I haven't had a look at the internals on a Raider(Not in real life anyway), but, I have compared the AT breech with a Recon breech, the AT breech appears to be placed lower which is thus better alligned with the barrel. This is just a brief observation, but to me it is clear you don't have an ATm or have never fired on, mine has never jammed :3

    Mechanics are much smoother, not much room for the parts to move around. Easier 'cock' it like a shotgun that anything else, the worst gun for loading would be the recon, put on a scope and I grabbed hold of it and tried to load it and ended up throwing my scope halfway across the room... by accident.

    Yeah - the basics, plunger seal, AR removal, tube reinforcement as it actually fell off. When I get my V2 spring I'll open it up again. It's most likely one of the locks. But I'm not too fussed, a little bit of elbow grease sets it straight.

    You don't intend to use the V2 spring in the AT do you? From my experience, the ID is 2-4mm too small lol. It probably is one of the locks. That or your dart door thing isn't working properly.

    Well in the BT website there's two "V2" springs... I sure hope oxymoron ordered the one labelled "Spring for Nerf Longstrike / Alpha Trooper / Recon (V2)"

    To be honest, my AT has caused me a lot of pain for the amount I use it - which is barely.
