This gun is only available at Toys R Us for $30. Made by Prime Time Toys, its a electric fly wheel blaster that holds 48 darts and runs on 4 AA batteries. It has a on/off switch that starts the motors and the front grip is used to rotate the barrel and push the darts into the motors. One nice thing about this electric gun is that the darts won't fall out when tilted down. The range is really good for a fly wheel gun at about 40 feet. It will shoot as fast as you can pump the handle but to keep ranges up it's good to let the motors spin up between shots. I am very impressed with the range but disappointed that it doesn't have a trigger. It's worth the money in my opinion.
UPDATE: this gun will work with nerf darts but this guns darts are a little shorter so your nerf darts may need to be trimmed to get them to work correctly. Nerf streamlines can be used if you trim them down to the correct length and either add electrical tape or rubber bands to the flywheels so they can grip the darts. This will require taking the gun apart. Either method will require getting the correct thickness on the flywheels to grip the dart correctly.

The stock can be removed with the push of a button.
You can see the motors through the window on the side. There is also a slot to load darts if you don't want to open the front.
The front opens for easy dart loading and the barrel spins freely.
