    So, after a very long day at work, I decided to drop into 'awesome-village' (<--mod changed it.. A.K.A Bay-Village) shopping centre. I had some $100 spending money in my wallet and I saw the Vulcan. The gun I have always wanted. So I bought it and went home.
    Now, the box was fairly big. I managed to get through the front door without tripping on it and falling asleep on the poor thing. I grabbed a screwdriver and scissors. I opened it and managed to pull the thing out of the box.

    I put the gun together as instructed and tested it, it was so awesome. I walked around the house pretending to be Scarface repeating "Say Hello To My Little Friend" then spraying my wall with a hail of bullets.
    I done a range test and shot it down my hallway, whatever gun manages to hit the curtain is good and the Vulcan did just that, it has pretty good accuracy too.
    It is fairly weighty and bulky, it is rather hard to maneuver. It is probably best used as a weapon to give your team-mates some covering fire while they reload.
    Reloading isn't great either, but for about 10 seconds of fun, its worth the 1-2 minute reload. Imagine doing that in CoD.

    Time for the rating..
    Accuracy: 8/10 - Great accuracy for such a big gun.
    Range: 8.5/10 - Not many stock Nerf guns get good range, but for mine, it was outstanding.
    Mobility: 4/10 - Isn't great, but what do you expect, its a big gun.
    ROF: 9.5/10 - It has the highest Rate Of Fire out of any weapon I have used.
    Reloading: 5/10 - It looks awesome, but its a pain.

    OVERALL: 9/10 - One of the coolest guns I have. If you have the money, you need to go get this gun. It's one of the most awesome and useful guns. You can absolutely dominate any opponent with this gun. The only downside, is the reloading. Weight isn't a big issue, after all, they gave you a tripod.

    I hope they weren't selling it for $100; that you still got some change for other things to buy and a maccas run.

    But yeah the Vulcan is amazing, at least if you know how to operate it. Don't let little kids use it - yesterday my friend's vulcan was being wielded by an 11 year old like it was some kind of hedge trimmer. Give them a Reflex or something

    Yeah, I had some change left and yeah, I had maccas for dinner while I was there.
    I haven't jammed it or anything yet, some idiots claim that it is broken when the jammed it up by not knowing how to use it properly.
    My little step brother wanted one for his birthday but even I had trouble trying not to drop it (while using the bolt like a Longshot). It's heavy, but worth the money just in its weight alone..
    K-mart was a rip off though, with cheap batteries, it left me stranded with $25 left in my wallet.

    @ GrimRreaper Nice Review

    I have owned a Vulcan for a little while now (about 3 months) and it is a very good gun (also one of my favourites). First of all its accuracy is great. And the ROF on the Vulcan is good.And can be extremely useful in team situations such as providing cover fire. I have never had it jam on me either.

    The major problem with the Vulcan is how bulky it is. It is not the ideal gun if you want maneuverability. Also the time it takes to reload is very long. Also quite expensive (I didn't buy mine got it as a present). Maintenance is expensive as D batteries aren't very cheap.

    In the end this gun is very very fun and is also very reliable and useful.

    Yeah, its pretty awesome. The next gun they manufacture should be like the Stampede and Vulcan combined into a smaller, more more compact size. Even better if it looked like an assault rifle.

    I reckon the Deploy looks like the FAMAS, the recon when painted - M4, the Vulcan - SAW.

    Due to the belt feed, it's more like an M60.

    But, back on track, if used correctly, yes, it is a good blaster, but it isn't really flexible in its uses.

    The only problem with the vulcan is that it needs a bit of work if you want to modify it to compete with more heavily-modified blasters.

    More off-topic, Probably closer to the SAW than the browning or the m60 but still,

    it doesn't look like a real gun

    Did you find with the range test that the 3rd dart seems to drop shorter them the other ones?

    Not really..? Some guns are different, yours might fall short after every 3rd dart, mine might be fine and shoot consistently. I did not really take any notice, but I haven't shot mine in a while because I have no one to shoot at..

    If only the vulcan was easier to modify, it might actually be a pretty decent blaster. The plunger arm is too weak too... but, most of you will never find this out.

    As for range, i was getting an average of 70ft from my vulcan.... then the plunger arm was torn in half!

    I am trying to get around to modifing mine but have some more inportant things going on. I have wondered why there are no upgrade springs for them, because 70ft would be a great.

    No need to touch the motor, it is just a case of removing the AR and installing a 25lb spring. As to where these springs come from, that i cant help you with.

    Springs I can get made up and did you find the 25lb spring was good or less lbs. It's hard to find anyone that knows because no one seems to do this mod.

    I do need to do some spring maths sometime as i try to adjust the strength of the spring within the limits that i have. Am going to try playing with the thickness of the wire first. But personally i would rather get the plunger arm cnc machined from a billet of aluminium.

    I wouldnt go any bigger than 25lbs need to work backwards from there, but i should have taken more springs to the spring manufacturer so i could have found their loads, so i could have gotten a better picture of the upper and lower limit. Would have made it easier to work out how much less i needed to go.

    I guess i might try in 5lb increments and will one day need to order a set to be made. No rush.

    I love my Vulcans.

    It's hard to understand why some people don't like them.

    I probably focused on the ROF more (I watched that "manapotions" video and got carried away).

    But recently I came by a semi suitable spring and gave it a go, with better results.

    I haven't done anything with the plunger seal, and haven't even looked at reinforcing the plunger arm, as I have several Vulcans which can be used for spares.

    I also have some heavier motors that will fit straight in if I burn one out.

    I don't really focus on this one, but now it's been mentioned I'll probably glue the clutch, try to reinforce the plunger arm, tighten the plunger seal (via different o ring), and fit a heavier spring if I can find one for it.

    Here's where I'm at with it now.

    My first blaster was a vulcan, and I still haven't done any mods to it. Although, looking at your vid, it does look slightly more interesting than I first thought.

    How's your TV holding up to the constant bombardment of darts?

    oznerfnerd: I see that you have a series one vulcan, that clutch problem was a common fault of the series on vulcans. The vulcans you can buy today are series 2 vulcans, that clutch problem has been fixed.

    How do you know if you have a series 1 or series 2 vulcan?

    It is the little barrel extension piece, this is only found on the series 1 vulcan.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For anyone else that has a vulcan and wasnt happy with it, check to see if it was a series 1 or not. As the series 1 vulcan was quietly replaced by Hasbro (so that they didnt have to recall them). If you only had a series 1 vulcan before, try a new one from a large retailer these should all be series 2 vulcans.

    Edit: Oh has anyone noted that those that seem to like the vulcan the most are older nerfers, I wonder if there is something to this.

    OK,

    I didn't know that.

    Like I said, I haven't really focused on the Vulcan, I just pull it apart to "hot rod" it time to time.

    I hate clutches in all blasters, and tend to glue them all when I have the thing apart.

    Cheers for that new info.

    They are deal extreme's trustfire unprotected 14500's by the way Clunk.

    Cheers Servulus, I'm obviously not quite old enough to appreciate the Vulcan!!!


    @OzNerfNerd - how do you find the trustfire's? I have some ordered, but I doubt I'll be seeing them any time soon.

    It's got me buggered.

    My days of going at 600-700 rounds per minute are just a fond memory...

    Hey, maybe that's it!!
