Aesthetics The Turbo fire has a nice shape to it. The futuristic Pancor Jackhammer esque look of it is quite nice (a concept automatic shotgun, not a Scandinavian porn star). Some areas of of the gun look quite shabby, especially around the drum. That translucent orange shroud looks quite out of place, and looks cheap as hell. The pump at the front is nice and large, but you have to have your hand on the front of it or you'll hit your hand when you prime it back. The grip is quite thin and small and that piece that comes out the back of it and connects to the stock gets in the way. Very much designed for kids.
The ugly underside
The gun gets standard out of the box ranges of about 9 to 10 meters (as mentioned in the bullet points). The gun suffers from some piss poor accuracy. Some shots go wild, and I believe this is due to the Faux barrel in front. the pump action allows for some fast firing. the drum works with Nerf taggers and sonic darts, but not streamlines and blue headed suction darts. There is very little tolerance for long darts.
Gettin' in closer
Plunger bits all over the place
Wanna remove the barrel pegs. don't even need to open it
The internals are fairly basic, but have a habit of exploding everywhere and some patience is required when reassembling. It has a decent, almost Nitefinder sized plunger tube and a decently strong spring. The turret seal is spring loaded and has a rubber seal, much better than on a maverick.
The, Oh shit son! what are you doing!
Despite the glowing praise I gave above, there is one massive drawback to this gun, and that is the abysmal plastic used to make it. Its thin, bends and breaks easily. When taking internal photos, I dropped the turret on to the concrete floor and ruined it something fierce. For this gun to handle the rough and tumble on modders and wars, some serious reinforcement would be needed. this point alone takes a good gun with alot of potential and makes it a real disappointment, unless your willing to reinforce the mother loving hell out of it.
