  • What Nerf magazine clip/drum do you thiink is the best?

      Loading editor
    • I think the 35 round drum.
      91vddXVsbTL. SX355

      This is the 5 round drum. It only comes with the N-Strike Raider CS-35.

    • Undoubtedly, the CS-35 is king. But as I've said here before, the CS-35 jams frequently. CS-25s not so much. CS-18s are pretty reliable. CS-12s rarely jam. CS-10s almost never jam. And CS-6s are as reliable as death and taxes.

      And not to put too fine a point on it, but the CS-35 is readily available with or without a Raider. Just check eBay. Cheap ??? Well, not so much.

    • Then, 25 round dart drum or 18 round clip?

    • I personally like the CS-25. But I suppose that's because it suites my play style. In different situations, other clips might be a better choice. To each his own.

      I know!  If you load more than five darts it jams!  ;P  If you want high capacity, you get jams.  Flip clips forever!


      BTW, if you don't get what I said about the drum holding five darts, look at the caption on Calebchur's photo.

      Thanks for posting that, it's hilarious.

      But seriously, my favorite mags are flip-clips.  I would love some 12 rounders taped together, but I only have one, and it takes two to make a flip-clip.

    • Hmm, I don't remember the Raider coming with a 5 round drum...

    • Personally, I like the 35 round drums. I don't think that they jam too much more than 25 round drums and they hold 10 more darts. I'm lucky that I got 3 for for a really good price a few months back. They are awesome when used with a Stampede or Alpha Trooper. I wonder if there is a way to make a flip drum...

    • 35 round drums have feeding issues often, so I opt for a 25 round drum most of the time.

        Loading editor
    • So I have an observation/question for you guys. I've noticed that when you're done loading a CS-25 or CS-35 it helps reduce jams if you tap the drum against your hand a few times so that it packs the darts with their tail ends against the back of the drum. (Flashback: it reminds me of the way us old timers used to tap a pack of cigarettes)

      The reason being, I theorize, is the dart heads are rubbery and induce a great deal more friction on the inside of the drum walls than the tail ends, which are smooth foam. When you pack them against their tails, they appear to feed much more consistently, with a lot fewer jams. But hey, maybe it's just me.

      So my question is, has anybody tried this, and has anybody noticed if it makes a difference ?  Your feedback, as always, is welcome.

    • Maybe it's the way I load them but I slide the darts in from the front so they are pushed againts the back of the drum anyway. But I think you're right that it has to do with friction of the darts.

      Pretty sure you're right.  My drum won't even work if I load it with rubber-headed darts.

      And, yes, I did try to fix it, it worked for a while, but quit again.

    • I personally like the six dart clip. Because, it's very comfortable and quick, but the thing is, it doesn't carry a lot of ammo.
      Nerf N-Strike Elite 6 dart clip

      Yup. It's this one.

      Yup. It's this one.

      CS-6s perform quite well. Problem is Cal, they're bulky. See all that wasted space between the last dart and the bottom of the clip ? Well it's basically the same space whether it's a CS-6 or a CS-18. Judging visually, I'd say it's about 40% of the CS-6.

      Cs-18

      CS-18 Clip

      But when you look at a fully loaded CS-18 clip, there's only 20% wasted space. When I measured and did the math, it looks like the CS-18s are 33% more efficient as far as dart storage capacity. Which is a lot when you're talking about multiple dozens of darts.


      While I won't disagree that they're comfortable and quick, they're also very inefficient. I mean, holy cannoli, just look at these Drop Leg 4x18 Pouches for compact efficiency.
      Nerf guys you say 79bcb66ccd3df90cfaefa10f3d44172e

      30 darts between 'em




      Compare that to this crew, with 30 shots between them. Seems like a couple CS-18s and an Elite HyperFire would take care of all of 'em. Just guessin' 😉

    • The negative things about the six dart clip is that it doesn't carry a lot of ammo, however the positive thing is that it never jams (by that, I mean rarely jams a gun) and plus in addition, it it is quick and it is easy to reload, like the twelve dart clip, or the ten dart clip from the Tri-Strike or the banana clip or somethin'.

    • Odd thing about that for a little while the six dart clip was jamming my stryfe for a little while but im sure it was either user error or the darts

      Which Stryfe was it? Was it the model with that really stupid dart lock?

    • I think then ten-dart mag that comes with the tri-strike and the elite six-dart mag shoot equally well. I don't ever have any feeding issues.

        Loading editor
    • I think for an ordinary nerf war, a 12-round mag is good enough. For a prolonged war, the 25 and 35-round drum mags are good.

    • I like the 10-round banana clipazine that comes with the ECS-12 and Demolisher are useful, since it makes it easier to grab/reload the clipazine. I use it often with my Stryfe, and since I've already gone like 23% off topic, I might as well tell you my Stryfe attachments; a Long Range barrel from the Modulus line, a scope from the Modulus line, an orange WorkerMods stock, an orange Retaliator grip. I'n also sorry I haven't been super-active recently.

    • Hey Yoshi, post a pic of that when you get a chance. The rest of us would love to see it.

      I too have a Stryfe with a Long Range barrel extension and Worker stock. I opted for a Tippmann red dot sight, since you can grab them for 10 bucks on Amazon. Frankly, it's not any more expensive than a faux 1x Nerf sight. But it looks way cooler !

    • I think it's kind of wasted on a Nerf gun, which has the accuracy of a drunk whale shark (don't ask).

        Loading editor
    • I haven't seen any drunk whale sharks. Recently. But for 10 bucks, it's a heck of a nice accessory for your blaster. And despite the fact that Nerf blasters are inconsistent, these Tippmann red dot sights actually work to some extent.

      I'm just saying, I'd rather have a real red dot sight, and a faux Rival Red Sight any day 😉

        Loading editor
    • For the price, it's fine. I just feel like the accuracy of even a RIVAL is so low a red dot sight won't even improve accuracy too much.

      I forgot to mention, I needed to add a small strip of self adhesive black felt to each side of the mount to take up a little slack. But it's nice and solid.

    • The sight is the same one you linked to, but at the top of the "These Sellers" list.

    • Oh I see what you mean. Just keep in mind that the $5.78 one has $4.50 shipping, while the $10 ships free. I find Amazon deceiving sometimes. You really have to take into account the price, the shipping, AND the tax. It says "sort by price + shipping", but that's not always the true lowest cost.

      But right this very second there a $7 Tippmann with free shipping and no tax. Now that's a bargain.
