They're just not as fun![/QUOTE] I can tell you from experience that the Praxis and Vigilon are both very good blasters, but personally I find the Vigilon to be far too bulky and heavy to be a sidearm, and considering it gets about the same range as the Praxis you might as well get a Praxis and a smaller dart-firing sidearm. Assuming of course that you're LOOKING for a primary and a sidearm :v:
I just got the long-strike for Christmas, Its amazing
So, I am going to Uni next year, and it is well known for its nerf wars. What is the best gun, whats the most cost effective, whats the easiest/best to mod?

[QUOTE=DangerStranger;33942020]But the Op says it uses shitty darts :([/QUOTE] It uses streamlines, the same darts every clip-fed blaster uses. [editline]29th December 2011[/editline] Also what uni?
[QUOTE=DangerStranger;33942020]But the Op says it uses shitty darts :([/QUOTE] Streamlines are shitty. But the Recon is still a good blaster.

From what I have heard though it's similar to the Maverick, which is a fantastic blaster in my opinion!
I have a nerf maverick, it has a pretty good range, 4 extra darts, and they whistle, I love it

me and some dudes are gonna do nerf games and shit what guns should we start out with, and other tips and stuff would be nice
I love my Raider, such a good buy. Any easy mods I can do for it? All the ones I googled look too complicated.
I had a Longshot CS-6 and the Recon when I was a kid best thing south of Airsoft
[QUOTE=ShadowSocks8;33945742]I love my Raider, such a good buy. Any easy mods I can do for it? All the ones I googled look too complicated.[/QUOTE] The most basic thing you can do is opening it up and taking the air restricter out.

Or Recons.
Got a Praxis and an Alpha Trooper :buddy: Slam-firing is awesome.
[QUOTE=CdeMonkey;33928441]The firing mechanism was a mouthpiece? How'd you get ranges that long?[/QUOTE] I'm a brass player, and I have very good breath control. The mouthpiece is shaped like my instrument's mouth piece, making it even easier to get such ranges.
best easy way to mod a maverick to be more powerful? will be first mod.
[QUOTE=skynrdfan3;33971211]best way to mod a maverick? will be first mod.[/QUOTE] The easiest would be the "penny mod" (put a penny behind the spring) however I've heard that this really doesn't accomplish anything. At any rate, new spring and air restrictor removals are pretty standard. Some people glue the rotation mech together so it doesn't slip and jam. Basically, you have a lot of options, but since this is your first mod I'd say just stick to basic spring replacement/AR removal and worry about the other stuff later.
imo, the Maverick isn't worth modding. It doesn't add that much to it. It's alright unmodded.
[QUOTE=Rammaster;33971711]imo, the Maverick isn't worth modding. It doesn't add that much to it. It's alright unmodded.[/QUOTE] yeah... but it could be BETTER when you mod it. Mine, after an air restrictor removal and a spring-stretch, gets nice ranges- 35-40 feet. I agree with you on the point that it IS the nicest blaster out of the box.
I'm quite confused about my Maverick, I put a few pennies behind the spring and removed the air restrictors + barrel posts and I'm getting insane ranges. I haven't measured but they're further than any other gun I own (including my longstrike with a 6kg spring), and any of my friend's guns. Did I just get a really good Maverick or something?

It has more powerful of a spring than most other guns, and is also pretty compact. There's also a chance you got a good gun.
