|Nerf Deploy CS-6 box. Kid doesn't look happy..|
The Deploy has tactical rails for N-Strike attachments, and the barrel is like the Recon that allows you to fit on extension barrels on the end. A couple of batteries power the red flashlight beam for night time fun:)
Arming the Deploy uses a pump action shotgun style primer at the bottom of the blaster. Sliding it back and forth arms the blaster. It also has an inbuilt sight (ie a drilled hole) through the handle to look through when firing.
The transforming of the blaster was a novel idea, but it lends itself to a kind of flimsy feeling grip which just doesn't feel good to hold.
Apparently the internals of the Deploy are similar to the Recon, which means modders aren't a fan of the reverse plunger system it uses. Personally, I find it does shoot further than the Recon, but as always, I am using it in a confined apartment space.
Overall I quite like the Deploy; it looks great and I liked the built in light, but have to admit I find the wobbly handgrip a lil' distracting. The transforming function is also more of a gimmick than offering any real useful functionality.

Out of the box performance: 7.5/10
Cool factor: 7/10
Price point: 7/10 (only because you have to either import it or buy from a grey import seller)
