Mod: Bullpup Rapidstrike (complete except paint)

Several months ago I embarked on a quest to build a full-auto bullpup blaster, as I love bullpup and now love full auto. I began with an Autorayven as I wanted to make my Elite Rayven special, however lingering Rayven-related issues caused that project to be scrapped. The next best of course is a bullpup Rapidstrike, so I took my remaning spare Rapidstrike and got to work on that.

Comparison: Nerf Mega Magnus vs Buzz Bee Air Max 3/Boss

The Magnus was Nerf's first Mega blaster after the horrible mess that was the Failturion, and was actually a decent and usable blaster. Some time later and Buzz Bee reveals their line of Mega-firing Air Max blasters, one of which is eeriely to the Magnus, the Air Max 3/Boss. How does the new kid compare?

Review: Buzz Bee Air Max 3/Boss (15m Aus)

Buzz Bee's mid-sized Mega blaster is the Air Max 3/Boss, a 3-shot slide action large pistol seemingly as a direct competitor to Nerf's Magnus, but with one key advantage: having a Mega clip (mag).
Like with all the previous Air Max and Ultra Tek blasters, many thanks to Buzz Bee for kindly sending the AM3/Boss to me for review, and like with all of those reviews, their contribution will not affect the review in any way.

Review: Buzz Bee Air Max/Baron + Internals (EU)

Along with their new clip (mag) compatible Ultra Tek line, Buzz Bee has also released a new Air Max line compatible with Nerf's Mega line. The smallest offering in the new Air Max line is the Air Max/Baron. I received the one called the Air Max specifically, supposedly meant for European retail.
Once again, many thanks to Buzz Bee Toys for sending the new Air Max blasters over for review, as without their contribution I would not be able to obtain them otherwise. Note that their contribution does not affect the review in any way.

Review: MazoFactory MOLLE Single Mag Pouch (HSM1)

MazoFactory is a new Melbourne based tactical gear manufacturer, who currently is focusing on clip (mag) pouches and holsters. Though not officially launched yet, they are currently making some items for sale, and products are still in development so prices may change in the future. I purchased a pair of "High Speed (Modular) Mag Single" (HSM1) Pouches just in time for use in MHvZ.

Review: Buzz Bee Ultra Rapid Tek/Sentinel (15m Aus) + Internals

The next entry in Buzz Bee's Ultra Tek line, the Sentinel/Rapid Tek (URT) is a lever action rifle type blaster, also using Buzz Bee's new clip (mag) system. How does it stack up against Nerf's line of rifle sized blasters?

Comparison: Nerf Zombie Strike Slingfire vs Buzz Bee Ultra Rapid Tek

Now that Buzz Bee's jumped into the clip (mag) blaster market, I can finally start doing some cross-company clip (mag) blaster comparison. To start off with, let's compare the two lever action entries, the ZS Slingfire and the Ultra Rapid Tek/Sentinel. Like with all other comparisons, I'll be comparing the Australia release blasters that I have, which in this case are the grey trigger black breech Slingfire, and the 15m range claim Ultra Rapid Tek.

Review: Buzz Bee Ultra Tek 8/Champion + Internals (15m Aus)

Buzz Bee's Ultra Tek line doesn't just sport increased ranges. With the larger Ultra Tek blasters, Buzz Bee has gotten into the business of interchangeable clip (mag) fed blasters, one of Nerf's major draws and advantages over most of its competitors. In this post we look at the smallest of Buzz Bee's models, the entry level UT8/Champion.

As usual, many thanks to Buzz Bee Toys for sending these Ultra Tek blasters to me for review, and note that their contribution does not affect the reviews in any way.

Review: Nerf Zombie Strike Doublestrike (grey trigger Aus)

The Doublestrike is one of Zombie Strike's more unique/better looking releases, seemingly being a shrunken down version of the highly acclaimed Hammershot, sporting an awesome Derringer style design. Can it live up to the Hammershot's acclaim?
