The Double Dealer is a Nerf blaster that was released in fall of 2016 under the Doomlands 2169 series.

It comes packaged with two twelve dart clips, twenty-four Doomlands Darts, and instructions.

Details

The Double Dealer is a clip system blaster that holds two clips at a time; the blaster fires two darts at a time, one from each loaded clip. It has two tactical rails and an integrated shoulder stock that can store two extra clips. The blaster can be slam fired.

Unlike other multi-fire blasters at the time, the Double Dealer can only fire both darts at once, as it lacks a multi-step trigger. It also only has a single plunger system instead of two.

Problems

The reliability of the Double Dealer is highly questioned, as some units have had severe jamming issues. These generally occur while firing quickly, i.e. while slam firing. The plunger is a fairly large size, but the spring is weak. Another issue is that there is a large slot cut into the bottom of the plunger tube. There is a plastic peg attached to the plunger rod that moves through this slot, presumably to help guide the rod but it is unknown why that is necessary when the rod is perfectly guided just by the stopper in front of the catch.[1]

Official description

History

The Double Dealer was first announced in January 2016 by Popular Mechanics.[2]

It was included in the 2019 re-release of the Doomlands series as an Amazon Exclusive.

Trivia

  • Besides the two twelve dart clips and the jam door, the current design for the Double Dealer doesn't have any clear external parts like the rest of the blasters in this line. It is the first Doomlands 2169 blaster to not have this feature.
  • This is the third blaster to use multiple clips at once, after the Rhino-Fire, which uses two twenty-five dart drums, and the Hail-Fire, which can use up to eight non-drum clips.
  • Using two fifty dart drums, the blaster can have a total capacity of up to a hundred darts, making it the highest capacity spring powered blaster.
