Review: Nerf Mega Magnus (22m grey trigger)

Today's review, the Nerf (N-Strike Elite) Mega Magnus.

The Magnus is just the second blaster in the Mega line, yet the Mega line has already had a heap of press. Originally with claimed 100ft ranges and the longest blaster ever, the Centurion, the Mega line had a lot of people excited, only to shatter most people's dreams when people actually got a hold of the Centurion. Flimsy and squishy darts, hopeless accuracy, constant jamming and dart shredding, and with no consistency whatsoever, the Centurion was possibly the biggest modern Nerf failure ever. The Magnus has a lot to prove then, so how does it fare?

Nerf Rebelle Wrist Quiver

 So this is apparently a new thing for Rebelle.

Yep, an armband type thing that holds a few darts and the decoder for the Secrets and Spies subline.
Found for 8AUD at BigW.

Left Handed Sweet Revenge Holster

The Rebelle Sweet Revenge comes with its own cheap plastic holster. Unfortunately for lefties and dual wielders, the holster only supports right handed holstering. Though left handers are a minority of the population, being right side only compatible means that you have to go out and buy a left handed holster just to dual wield Sweet Revenges. So I set out to fix that.

Behold, the terribly cheap, messy, ugly and terrible mod to make your Sweet Revenge holster left handed.

Dual Wield Time!

Today I went off to BigW to take advantage of a 10% off coupon. The two things I had any interest in there were the Sweet Revenge Kit and the Mega Magnus.
The SR naturally gives me the ability to dual wield , since I already have one, and is also ideal for the Nerf group at Uni, since revolvers are great for newbies.
On the other hand, the Magnus was cheaper, and also new to me as I haven't gotten any Mega blasters yet (no way am I getting a Failturion). It also packs more power and better modability thanks to its huge direct plunger. Not to mention the awesomeness of firing huge darts.

So the winner of this contest? Well...
