The Turbofire is quite a decent sized piece of kit, comparable to the Nerf Raider CS-35. It sports the standard X-Shot green and black paint scheme, with a translucent orange shell around the barrel and the standard yellow trigger. In box it comes with the blaster and 20 of the black and yellow sucker darts- or if you buy the dual pack, two blasters and 40 darts. It feels a little rattley, but on the whole it's pretty solid and decently built.
The cocking mechanism looks fantastic, but is incredibly uncomfortable to hold and even with my tiny kid like hands, I had issues with gripping it and pulling it back and forth. This was a fail for us which frustrated me somewhat.

How does it perform is the big question, and I'll be honest- surprisingly pretty darn good. From our experiences, it's got similar ranges to a Recon or a Deploy- it easily made it up the distance of my staircase and to the second floor as well as hitting the ceiling with no problem. No jams thus far, other than the annoying grip on the cocking mechanism which keeps slipping out of my hand. But it's surprisingly quite accurate and decent to fire. Much of this depends on the darts though- the quality of the X-Shot darts leave something to be desired which tend to result in them flying all over the shop. Inspecting your dart before you load can really assist in your accuracy.
