The Secret Strike AS-1 is an air system Nerf blaster that was released in 2004 under the N-Strike series.

It comes packaged with two Micro Darts and a cardboard target.

Details

The Secret Strike AS-1 is a very small air-powered blaster; its pump is located under the muzzle of the blaster. It does not have a tactical rail mainly due to its size. Instead of a trigger, this blaster features a firing button, which is located on top of the blaster. It comes with a belt clip attached to its bottom so that a person may clip to their belt. It does not feature a conventional handle, including a small section to rest one's hand against instead.

The air bladder in the Secret Strike AS-1 has problems with air leaking from the pumping apparatus.[citation needed]

It advertises a firing range of up to thirty feet (nine meters).

Official description

History

The Secret Strike AS-1 is a re-release of the Power Nerf Secret Strike Pocket Blaster.

The packaging was updated alongside the rest of the N-Strike line in 2010. For this update, the cardboard target on the back of the packaging was removed.

The blaster was sold at most stores until around 2011, when stock became limited in order to accommodate for the similarly-priced Jolt EX-1.

Color schemes

The Secret Strike AS-1 has been released in the following color schemes:

  • Yellow, gray, and orange (yellow Nerf logo)
  • Yellow, gray, and orange (orange Nerf logo)
  • Blue, yellow, black, and orange
  • Yellow, blue, gray, and orange
  • Yellow, blue, black, and translucent orange
  • Red, blue, yellow, black, and orange

Reloading and firing

To reload the Secret Strike AS-1, load a dart into the muzzle.

Pump up to five times then press the firing button at the top of the blaster to fire.

A common misconception is that users may be able to increase firing power by pumping more than ten times, however this causes the blaster to be heavily prone to air tank damage. The damage caused by overpumping usually results in air pressure from pumping quickly escaping or inability to put a significant amount of pressure in the blaster. As a result, the blaster will no longer be able to fire at the same potential range it would receive otherwise. Because of this, it is not recommended to pump the blaster over five times.

Trivia

  • The Micro Darts included with this blaster have black tips instead of blue or purple as seen in the Maverick REV-6.
  • This blaster used to hold the title of smallest Nerf blaster; it is currently the second smallest, with the Jolt EX-1 being the current title holder.
  • It is rumored that the Secret Strike was available as a McDonald's Happy Meal toy in the United States, although there is no known proof to verify this.
  • The Secret Strike is tied with the Titan AS-V.1 for the lowest capacity air system blaster, closely followed by the Hornet AS-6.
