    Hooray! Guess who got their hands on the latest and greatest from Nerf? Yep that's right kids, I managed to grab a Rampage and a Retaliator. We'll only be looking at the Rampage today, but rest assured that it's brother won't be too far behind.

    Not yet officially released, and by that I mean you can buy it from an assortment of stores in the US but Nerf is still saying that they'll be here in October, the Rampage is the Elite variant of the old N-Strike Raider. The shell looks like it's just another repaint, but it's the internals and the new darts that we're all really interested in. This is because Nerf has apparently listened to it's fan base and managed to cram a direct plunger system into the old Raider shell, all while retaining that brilliant clip loading, slam-firing action we all love. But enough on the blaster, lets get to it!

    _______________________________________________________________________

    Tools/Materials required...

    Phillips head screwdriver
    Drill and assortment of drill bits
    Long round hand file

    _______________________________________________________________________

    See how new it is, it's still in box!

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4681-1

    Opened box.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4682-1

    The blaster itself.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4684

    Just like the Raider before it, you have to attach the mag well.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4685

    Like so.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4686

    Ok, time to kick off proper.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4688

    Start by removing the end cap. It's held on by two screws.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4689

    Then the priming handle.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4690

    It's held on by five screws. It's probably worth noting at this point that all the screws in this blaster are the same, so no need to remember which one goes where.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4691

    With that in mind, we can remove the rest of the screws from the shell.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4693

    These internals are not like those you've seen before. Really do take the time to have a good look around at this stage and figure out how it all works.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4694

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4695

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4696

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4697

    Interestingly if you look here, you'll notice that the breech isn't all the way closed. This is because the dart door is sprung much harder than in other blasters and actively forces the breech back a little.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4700

    However, when you prime the blaster or simply pull the priming handle all the way forward, it will fully close.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4701

    Ok, lets continue with the dis-assembly.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4702

    Remove the trigger and the dart holder.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4703

    Then the front barrel.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4705

    Like so.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4706

    Take the spring out.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4708

    Then the whole breech and plunger assembly should come out in one piece.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4709

    Like so.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4710

    Pop the catch off the back.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4711

    Then pull the breech out the front of the plunger.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4713

    The only Air Restrictor (AR) is in this front part of the breech.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4716

    These four little nubs hold the spring in place, which in turn forces the AR forward. When air rushes forward it pushes the AR back against the spring, allowing air to pass through to the dart.

    We instead want a clear path.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4717

    Grab something small (nail, screwdriver, what ever fits) and push the bolt sled pin all the way though.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4718

    Allowing you to separate the breech from the bolt sled.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4721

    Start from the back of the breech with a small drill bit to get yourself a pilot hole, then move in with a larger bit to destroy the AR. I used a 3mm and then a 9mm bit, but whatever works for you should be fine. Once you're done, it should look like this.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4723

    The spring and dart peg should fall out intact.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4724

    Then move in with you hand file and clean up the remaining dags.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4726

    Same view from the front.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4731

    The plunger itself already has a perfect seal form factory, so no need to mess around there. We'll instead cut straight to reassembly.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4733

    Insert the breech back in the plunger tube.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4734

    Place the whole assembly back in the blaster.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4735

    Replace the catch. It has a cutout on one side; that side should be facing forward.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4736

    Slide the spring back in place.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4737

    Move up to the front of the blaster.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4738

    Replace the barrel, then the front piece. It needs to go with the two pegs facing down.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4739

    Like so.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4740-1

    Put the trigger and dart holder back in place.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4742

    Almost done!

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4743

    Put the other half of the shell back on and screw it in place.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4744

    Replace the priming grip.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4746

    Finally, replace the end cap and we're done. One AR'd Rampage.

    Nerf Rampage – AR Removal DSCN4747




    Range testing for this one was done between rounds at an inside game, so zero external influences. Unfortunately, I forgot to take any elite darts with me to that game so we're stuck with streamline ranges.



    Stock - 11m average with an 8-12m spread
    AR'd - 14m average with a 12-16m spread

    Nice pictures and write-up Jeo, but I must say I am disappointed with your range. I know you only had stock streamline darts to measure at that time, but 11m is around 35ft which is not much of an improvement over a stock Raider (with its reverse plunger). The box claims range of 75ft (which we assume it is an angled shot, not a parallel-to-ground shot), so a PTG range should be around 50ft (15m) in stock form.

    11m from a stock raider? I got 7.5m from a brand new one back when I did my write up on that.

    Added to the directory hours ago btw. Just so you know I am still around.

    Also, lots of factors which can affect range. The streamline is heavier than the elite dart according to SgNerf. So that would be a factor.
