    Vortex in Big W South Aus.... Empty Vortex in Big W South Aus....

    Post  p8ballninja74 Sat Sep 03, 2011 3:10 am

    Hey all, just a heads up, was out early picking up Father's Day present and stumbled upon the complete Nerf Vortex Series in Big W, Golden Grove, South Australia. Grabbed a PRAXXIS,$28 bucks, got a loose mag eject lever and drops its 10 disc mag with each shot....annoying. Gonna head back and swap it now. The Full Auto one was $58, the little pistol was $14 i think, not sure how much the bigger pistol was. Not advertised or on the Big W website....but trust me..THEY GOT EM!! ENJOY

    Vortex in Big W South Aus.... Empty PRAXXIS...Dodgy mag release....

    Post  p8ballninja74 Sat Sep 03, 2011 4:51 am

    Just got back from swapping my PRAXXIS for a second one,only to find this one drops its mag also wen you fire it. The release catch does feel stiffer,but still the vibration from firing the disc seems to make the catch lose its grip. Just something to be aware of people,plastic round magazine hitting the hard ground repeatedly probably not the best thing for it. I grabbed a PROTON on my second visit back there,$12.82 was the price...about to unbox it now. Big W in Salisbury didnt have any of the new VORTEX series.... GOLDEN GROVE in SOUTH AUSTRALIA definitely DO tho......good price too

    I lived in golden grove for a little while. Sauvignon court, I think.

    Perhaps you could open it up, and try and find out why it drops the mags? Maybe fix it?

    Nerf is all about discovery.

    I just went to a couple K-marts and Big-w's in our area and didn't find a single vortex blaster. If you find something, please tell me

    Hello there, yeah i know the street in Golden Grove. Have done the torsion bar mod to the Proton,pretty cool,pretty easy. Have removed a spring loaded bar from the magazine, the blaster uses an internal rod to press on this bar to assist the magazine ejection...really not required,drops free easily enough by itself. But alas...it still drops its mag. Goin for the electrical tape to thicken the sides a little,fingers crossed.
