The Apollo XV-700 is a Nerf blaster that was released in fall of 2015 under the RIVAL series.

It comes packaged with a seven round magazine, seven High-Impact Rounds, and instructions.

Details

The Apollo XV-700 fires High-Impact Round through the use of magazines, which are loaded through the blaster's handle. It features one tactical rail on top, where the user can add optional accessories. They will not slide on but instead have to be clamped over the blaster. The blaster also has a safety feature, which keeps the blaster from being fired when not in use.

While unlikely, should the blaster somehow jam, there is a small orange nub on the left side near the back. When primed, pushing it down will deactivate the lock keeping the bolt closed, allowing the user to open the chamber and clear the jam by allowing the ball to free-fall out of the grip. This can be used to fire more than one round at a time.

The Apollo is compatible with the twelve round magazine.

Trivia

  • The Apollo XV-700 is able to shotgun fire if the blaster is primed more than once. To accomplish this, the user must first prime the blaster normally and then press down on the de-jamming button to unlock the priming handle and prime again to chamber another round. It is not recommended to chamber more than two or three rounds, otherwise the blaster may jam.
  • The Apollo XV-700 is named after Apollo, the Greek and Roman god of prophecy and oracles, music, song and poetry, archery, healing, plague and disease, and the protection of the young. Apollo is also the twin brother of Artemis, after whom the Artemis XVII-3000 is named.
  • The Apollo is the most re-released Nerf blaster from the RIVAL series, having six different variants.
