  1. This looks interesting... I wonder if that's a winding wheel?

    1. Nope, it's been stated in earlier posts that it switches between the easier-pull "speed" setting and the harder-pull "power" setting.

  3. It probably works like this: When trigger is pulled, it has a notch on the front that brings the spring back, and the back of the trigger has a two way notch that acts at the catch releaser. Essentially, this would prime the blaster with the first half of the trigger pull, and then fire with the release, similar to the Barricade. I love it :D

  4. Hmmm... Look at the trigger, especially in the second picture. At first, I noticed the strange lines on the side of the trigger, but dismissed them as some new design cue. But, on closer inspection and application of logic, I realize that, when fully depressed, the trigger at its visible length has nowhere to fit! It appears to me as though the trigger actually does collapse into itself, as a necessity of the long trigger pull and the rather narrow thumbgrip.

    Observations aside, I'm certainly getting two of these! Now I know what my backup will be when my Rayvens run out... ;)

    2. Only two? I'm going to get four and rig them as doubles.

  5. Imho, its probably using the same internal mech as that off-brand semi auto blaster that SG Nerf reviewed back in 2009 = http://sgtoyz.blogspot.com/2009/12/oem-semi-auto-blaster-review.html

    Photos and videos of its internals = http://modworks.blogspot.com/2010/02/no-brand-semi-auto-blaster-internal.html

    1. Actually, not really. The Speedswarm's trigger design is different and the trigger is blue; that's still a Snapfire 8.

    2. No, the Speedswarm has a blue trigger. I have a normal one, well, it gets 65' ranges out of box ��

    3. none of the pictures is the speedswarm.

  7. This sounds interesting and cool and all. But it looks so ugly. Hmmm. Maybe I'll get one and to do some cosmetic work on it.

  9. http://www.sgtoyz.blogspot.com/2009/12/oem-semi-auto-blaster-review.html

    From SGNerf, found in December 2009. The mechanism in the new blaster is likely similar. I'm willing ot bet that the plunger tube itself is about the same size as a Maverick or Scout: fairly small, but a draw short enough for this to work.

    1. I was thinking the exact same thing. 2 power settings? I'm getting this for sure.

  10. I think I just found my new HvZ sidearm.

  11. This will be the best Nerf pistol ever!!!

  12. I think i saw a really short video of this on FoamfromAbove's Youtube channel it seemed to misfire a couple of times.I'll see if i can get a link

  14. If you look at one of the comments one that SG nerf video,it says something like this: I bet when nerf saw this they went: aww, man! we weren't going to use that entirley possible technology untill 2014!

  15. Someone made a gun out of legos that worked how I think this one does. his username is legogitaur and the video is something like: self reloading lego gun. (he means semi-auto)

  16. I dont think i am gonna like this one as much as the speedswarm. Not sure if the no battery semi-auto thing is gonna be that great. nerf went way overboard with the swarmfire.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Dang, that thing is ugly. Awesome, but ugly.

    ReplyDelete
  18. If it manages to surpass the Barricades performance, I think I'll give it a whirl as a sidearm to my Rayven. :D Of course I'll wait for UT to do a review on it first :P

    ReplyDelete
  19. Overboard with the Swarmfire?!

    Its a great blaster! ( I was using it just last night! )

    ReplyDelete
  20. Thank you. My only qualm is this thing looks like donkey duss. I mean, its worse than the "geonosian sonic blaster" Swarmfire...
    But from what I can tell, it should look fine from the shooter's pov.

  21. most british dart tag blasters have blue triggers and american have orange triggers.....

    ReplyDelete
  22. Looks cool, but it probobly will come out in america first so I guess the UK & Ireland will have to wait a while before we can get our hands on one.
