Hasbro Nerf Dart Tag Mag Strike Red Review
The NERF Magstrike AS-10 is an excellent primary, firing ten darts in two seconds, with a decent range as well. With the special Dart Tag variant, you also receive an extra clip, 10 extra tagger darts for a total of 20, a double-sided Dart Tag vest, and the Vision Gear tinted safety glasses. The yellow N-Strike Magstrike AS-10 only comes with one clip of 10 whistler micro darts, so the Dart Tag version is the better deal to get.
However, this gun has a few faults you should be aware of. When you fire only some of the darts in the clip, the clip slides back to its original position. To fire the rest, it has to climb back up to where it was, wasting valuable air pressure. However, an easy and 100% safe mod to fix this is to add 5-6 layers of electrical tape on the side of the clip with the belt clip on it. This increases friction, preventing the clip from falling down, or falling out entirely if you hold the Magstrike upside-down.
Another possible issue is that the gun must be pumped 25-30 times to fire a single clip. That means to reload, you have to switch the clip, then pump 25-30 times all over again.
My gun came defective, as one of the air tubes inside had a 90 degree kink in it before the piston, limiting airflow and my ranges to about 9 feet. However, the fix was very easy, requiring only electrical tape and a screwdriver, although opening the gun to get at the internals can be difficult. If you aren't comfortable modding, I would recommend just exchanging the gun for a new one, as if you can't fix it, now you might not be able return it either since you opened it up. But if this is the problem, fixing the bend will restore your Magstrike to stock ranges.
Despite the defect, I am overall extremely satisfied with my Magstrike AS-10.
