    Just got it for $5.60 at the target sale, comes packaged with three red tip whistler darts.

    Out of the box, it looks laughably small, but it does pack a bit of punch, firing red tipped whistlers, it has an effective range(Range without arcing) of somewhat 4.5 metres and a full range of around 8-9 metres. Firing black tipped whistlers, it gets 5 metres effectively, and a full range of about the same.

    It has a nice, crisp trigger pull, and strong catch, I haven't had a look but judging by the design of the gun, it appears to direct plungered, which would explain its good range. It also has one tactical rail on the cocking slide, though it's not all that practical.

    Usage and storage tips:
    - Use black tipped whistlers for the best range, stock, it cannot fire streamlines
    - Great side-arm for those of you who prefer to have a magazine fed nerf gun as a primary, it's small and doesn't get in your way

    - When storing, it's ok to leave a dart in it
    - (No-brainer) Never leave it cocked, you'll wear down the spring

    No mods so far, but I'll have a looksie to see what can be done.

    Update: Nope, it's reverse plungered :L

    I was just about to do a review about this!

    And yep, its a reverse plunger, or an "inverted plunger". And yes, this gun works quite well.
    I do not recommend modding it, because its reverse-plungered.
    I taped up the hole on mine, and it shot slower. When I removed it, the velocity increased. Any ideas why this happened?

    What do you mean by shot slower? I did an AR removal, it'll last me enough

    Its a $6 blaster who cares if it breaks.

    You probably put too much tape on the hole.

    Why not mod it? A basic AR removal doubles the ranges. I removed it yesterday and it kicks absolute arse!
    All you need to do it put a screwdriver through the AR with a hammer and soon enough the AR will fall out. Simple, and the most effective mod you can do on the thing.

    Ok, well, I might do that. Does the AR removal increase velocity? Or decrease it? I'd rather have a gun that shooted diddly-squat ranges, but shoots them fast, then one that shoots a million metres, but incredibly slowly.
    So does it shoot faster or slower?

    It shoots very fast and very far. I made a 25m shot. Well, heavily angled though. I'd recommend padding it when you do it too, I haven't yet and it makes the most almighty crack when fired. Single shot pistols are always greatly affected by an AR removal.
    That said, if you're using damaged darts, they go everywhere.

    Yeah, the Reflex/Eliminator sure punches above its weight. I've pimped mine with a piece of 17/32 brass, some plunger padding, and a couple coils off another spring, and she packs a wallop, thats for sure. Is good for 50ft flat, easy.

    I'm keen on using it as my primary in a Nerf War, just to see how far I can get without dying

    I don't think very far

    Still, it's an interesting weapon, I'll give it that. Although I certainly prefer the Scout over it for the simple fact that the Scout is more fun to play with and has a proper grip.

    You're right, I did play with a Scout at the recent WA war. I did like it, one of the only Nerf pistols that actually feels like a pistol. BUT it costs heaps, as the only way to get it here is with the Titan and Hornet for $89. Or eBay for $40 minimum :/ And the fact that it isn't in a N-strike colour scheme. Haha. I'm not keen on the red for some reason.

    89? I got mine for 70. It definitely is good value, as for the titan set, the hornet goes for 30-40 dollars, the scout about 15, and the titan around 50. But yeah. I really want the scout. I know I shouldn't, considering the nitefinder, but the design is so good. It should be, considering that nerf sells on cool factor. But with the reflex, I'd say its a good back up weapon. If you buy the eliminator set, its good for a party with a younger crowd at a party, and by yourself, you can go pirate style, and just pull out another one when you've fired its round.

    Ahh yes, the New York reload, I believe you can reload and prime just as fast as you can pull out another one, save the NYR for Mavericks
