The Quickfire 6 is a clip fed 6 round blaster from Toys R Us' in-house brand 'Air Zone.' In the past Air Zone was a little touch and go, but recently they have been bringing out some pretty decent blasters of late with both decent performances and aesthetically pleasing designs. Although Air Zone is essentially rebadged Lanard/Dart Zone/ X-Shot/misc gear, at least the person who's selecting the gear to do this is doing a great job.
At the time I brought them in from the US and for what they are, the Quickfire 6's are really quite decent for the price. (not so much if you're including the ridiculous import fees I had to endure!!!) They are however NOW available in Australia.. sigh:P
The blaster features a "tactical rail" similar to that of Nerf blasters, but they are not compatible with any of the N-Strike attachments. Actually, from what I know there's no attachments for these blasters available either yet, so it's a bit of a red herring for now:)
The clips are similar in size and design to the Nerf N-Strike ones, but they are not interchangeable. Air Zone clips seem a tad thinner. The Quickfire 6 also does not use "shells" in the clip like the Shell Shock X-6 which is a good thing (I hate those things) and just takes the darts directly like a clip-system based blaster in the Nerf range would. The clip is quite stiff to get in and out of the blaster and the release buttons aren't smooth so it's fiddly stuff releasing and refeeding.

Priming the blaster is like a Nerf N-Strike Recon. It's a manual pull back and forward motion. It's quite stiff, but tolerable.
Performances I found were pretty decent. It's similar to the standard stock Nerf blaster range of 10 metres (or 30 feet) and I couldn't fault the accuracy of them either. They feel a little rattley, but mainly because they're so slim and little compared to thicker gripped blasters, but as a 6 shot clip fed blaster, they're kinda fun. And they look awesome. Hello Aesthetic modders? I'm talking to you!
For a two pack they were around 20 bucks which I thought was pretty reasonable, especially the generous amount of darts supplied with the blaster. I like 'em- I'm not sure I'd bother importing them again, but locally, they're a good blaster and as a 2 pack they're a lot of fun. Get one? Sure, give 'em a whirl for funsies:)
