The new Nerf Barricade has finally hit store shelves. Leave it to Nerf to show Buzz Bee how it's supposed to be done. The Barricade is more compact than any of Buzz Bee's offerings and darts won't fall out when tilted down. Compared to other flywheel guns, this is one of the best there is. Ranges are about 30 feet which is pretty good and just slightly better than the Buzz Bee Rapid Blast that has 2 more shots. Accuracy is very good and it's one of the quieter flywheel blasters. The gun does look a little bulky but it is more compact than say a Nerf Fury Fire that also has 10 shots. My only real complaint with this gun is the loading of darts. I think they should of used a flip out barrel system like the Maverick to make loading easier. Maybe it's just me but when turning the turret to load darts it sometimes feels like something is going to brake inside. But for the price, this 10 shot semi-auto pistol is a good buy if you can get past the loading and noise.
1. compact, 10 shots and smaller than a Furyfire.
3. Good ranges at about 30 feet.
4. Comfortable to hold and uses any Nerf stock.
5. Dart's won't fall out when tilted down.
1. Flywheel noise, it's not that bad.
2. Not many mods(not that it needs any)
3. Reload time sucks
Ranges are about 30 feet, that's better than any of Buzz Bee's flywheel blasters(Rapid Blast comes close). It's on par with the Air Zone Punisher but slightly less than the Air Zone Power Strike at 40 feet.
Inside the box. Just the gun, instructions and 10 darts.
It has a jam door located on the top of the blaster.
Like most Nerf guns it has a tactical rail on top and you can use any removable stock from the N-Strike series.
Size compared to a Nerf Spectre.
Don't forget the batteries, 3AA(not included).
Internals are very basic.
Here you can see one of the flywheels.
The barrel rotation mechanism. No mods planned for this but I may try to integrate it onto another gun. And yes, streamlines do work in this blaster.
Found at Walmart $16.88.(reported to be $15 at Target) Is it war worthy? You tell me.
