Finally, a way to hold Vortex ammo. Introducing, the Vortex ammo belt

Nerf has done it again. Due to the popularity of the Vortex line, Nerf has creted an ammo storage system similar to the Bandolier kit which I have come to enjoy. This is the Nerf ammo belt kit

As much as I loved the bandolier kit, it was very troublesome to hold 18 round clips. Only 6 round clips seemed to be reasonable on the bandolier and it made ammo storage a problem for nerfers who didn’t have the fancy dump bag or ammo pouch. Well now, for all the vortex lovers, Nerf has a kit for you.

This ammo belt is a simple line up and click design. Included in the kit is a 10 round mag, 15 discs, 2 mag holders, an ammo pouch, and a clip to hold a pistol (proton but it doesn’t have to be.)

One thing I did notice was the different color of the magazine. It was a bright orange that matched more of the lumitron color scheme…seriously nerf, make up your mind! It is a standard 10 round mag, not much else to say about it.

The mag holders are very well built out of a tough plastic and the design compensates the magazine perfectly. Even when you are  running they won’t slip out due to the friction of the objects.

The ammo pouch can hold up to 35 discs (even though the box says 25.

The pistol clip works, but can be a pain to unclip your pistol from. I still recommend a metal carabiner.

The Belt is adjustable and can fit practically anyone. Equip this with the pyragon and you instantly have 60 rounds of ammo in magazines, 80 if you have the nitron’s 20 disc clip.

Unfortunately the drum is not compatible with the mag holder so just keep that in the pyragon :)

Overall the vortex ammo belt is worth adding to your arsenal, but NOT FROM TOYS R US.

The belt’s retail value is 14.99 and toys r us sells it for 10 dollars more. So just be patient and wait for it to hit walmart or target.

Behold! the Slam fire able Vortex Pyragon, the newest addition to the NERF vortex line!

Here it is everyone, my official review of the new Nerf vortex pyragon!
First, here are a few pictures to build up the suspense!

I was so excited to open this blaster, I really couldn’t wait to do it in the video. In addition it gave me a good idea of what to say to hopefully improve the video review. Overall, everything from the drum to the discs to the blaster is a home run. NERF has really out done themselves and at a decent price have scored big with the Pyragon.

The 40 Disc drum accompanied with 40 discs is quite remarkable. I won’t be opening it to see the mechanics, but I have a good idea of how it operates and I explain it all in the video below.

Like many other nerfers, I love the color of these discs more than the original. Now I don’t have to worry about losing discs in grass and even for indoor wars, they will be very easy to spot. They are the same weight and material as the original discs and fly just as well, if not better.

The Pyragon itself at first glance appears to be a fatter praxis. I have also noticed that the pyragon also ultimately gets better range than the lumitron, which leads me to believe that the blaster may have a slightly stronger spring in it. The color scheme is gorgeous and should not be messed with.

It does come with a stock attachment and tactical rail for all of your favorite N strike accessories but the one thing you only really need a raider stock imo. However I have noticed that the Retaliator stock is not compatible with the Pyragon. There is an explanation of this in the video.

The slamfire handle and slamfire mech are flawless which is saying a lot for nerf as the Raider slam fire and even sometimes the alpha trooper had issues with their slam fire. The grip is incredible and I personally believe should be integrated on to every nerf slam fire blaster.

The range is typical, about 60 to 70ft, though with the pyragon I am consistently seeing ranges above 70 ft which means this blaster may be able to keep up with the elite dart blasters. In addition, there is a jam switch should your pyragon ever jam, but I have not had one single jam after putting the pyragon through 200 shots.

Overall, for 39.99 this blaster is worth the price you pay. You get a powerful disc shooter that can slamfire plus a 40 round drum and 40 discs which alone cost about 25.00 retail. Enjoy the video and stay tuned for a firing test which will include my personal Slam Fire Test to show Nerf Nation!

Pyragon Video Review

Spotted! The next Sonic Series Vortex Blaster, Proton

Since the release of the Vortex line, fans have loved the vortex pistol known as the proton. Now Nerf Nation can enjoy it even more with the newest sonic series vortex release. The proton packs quite a punch for a pistol. It boasts usually 5 to 10 feet more than the praxis and vigilon. Now it joins these other 2 blasters in a sweet clear green shell. Available at toys r us for 14.99.

Introducing, the first Stainless Steel Boltsled for the Nerf Longshot CS-6

Image

Here it is guys, the very first, hand welded, American made, Stainless Steel Longshot boltsled. I can’t say enough about this product I really can’t. The craftsmanship of this custom made part is unlike anything I have ever seen. Its durability is unmatched, and should something go wrong, it has a life time warranty!

Remedy Metal is a up and coming mod company. Their entire basis will be Stainless steel, not plastic, like Orange Mod Works. Everything that comes out of their shop will be hand made so when you buy this product, you aren’t only supporting the company, but also the artist and his/her work.

The company guarantees that you are able to one hand prime this no matter what spring power you contain in your longshot. That is something no other company has been able to do, not even Xplorer.

For the price of 69.99, this bolt sled is WORTH IT!!!!! Sure you may need to hold off on buying anything else for a while, but with an over powered longshot you don’t really need anything else ;). Keep in mind however, due to the nature of the boltsled, the power you put into the blaster will start to put stress on the other plastic parts so mod at your own risk as always

The company sends this information and specific contact information with the product in case you need to contact them. This includes phone number and email which is very classy and shows that they will do their best to NEVER leave a customer hanging.

That concludes the review of the Stainless Steel boltsled from Remedy Metal. I highly recommend it! Also be sure to keep up with Remedy Metal, they are taking one step at a time but their goal is to manufacture an entire Stainless Steel Longshot kit. Thanks again Remedy Metal!
