Fires consistent shots, is reasonably solid and very fun to shoot.
Drawbacks are it can jam if you cycle the action too harshly, and it will not fire unless the cocking handle is forwards as far as it will go, but as long as you are careful it shoots fine :)
I own most of the nerf guns and have avoided this one for some time due to other reviews saying it was a low quality weapon.
But when it was reduced this week I took the plunge, I wish I had ages ago, this gun rocks.
First off the deploy feature is really cool.
I know other struggle with darts jamming, but after owning a few of these CS guns I realise that it is a case of how you load and prime the weapon that actually causes the jam, my 6 year old can manage to fire it without jamming when under fire so just keep at it!
I combined mine with the barrel extension and light sight off of the recon and this is one cool gun to the point where I didn't buy the longstrike I have been after for months :)
This is a really fun Nerf gun. I feel like I'm blasting away with a shotgun. Pump action is ace, darts go far and only one jam so far caused by me trying to shoot faster than I should.
Folds away into a really neat package and pops out with a nice loud clunk into gun mode.
Grip and trigger feel a little flimsy though, they give a bit as the grip is hinged (to fold away) and the trigger a bit thinner than most nerf guns.
Also the light on this gun is only a single red LED. Bright for an LED but it's really not good even in the dark. Worth modding that out for something else if you can (Laser may work or a bright LED like you get in torches)
Overall a great gun. And a steal right now as the price is waaay low. Buy it!
