Post Doominator Review  Reply with quote
So, i've added a few more blasters to my collection recently: my son got me a jolt for fathers day, I finally picked up a sledgefire, which was as much fun as I was hoping, and today, my smyths order of the Doominator arrived...

We all know about this monster, a pump action revolver, that takes the madness of the flipfury and doubles it, for 4 sets of 6 revolver barrels, 24 shots in total. It has slam fire, a repositionable front handle on the pump action, one tactical rail, and several sling points.

In the box, you get the main blaster, 2 of the drums that need to be slotted on, the handle, the darts and the instructions. The gun is strapped in by 3 strings, which are yellow rather than the colour matched ones you normally get. Assembling the drums and handle is simple, 20 seconds work.

Now comes the bit I was apprehensive about. Someone on reddit picked up a doominator at the weekend and said it jammed a lot. So I gingerly pulled back the handle, heard it click into place, and pulled the trigger, and watched satisfactory as the dart shot down the hallway, hit the door and bounced to the floor. But would it jam? Knowing my kids were playing outside and could come through the door at any time, I put the remaining 23 darts down the hallway in a few seconds, the grin on my face growing with every barrel flip.

I collected the darts and did it again, then collected them again and took it outside to threaten the kids with it and try it out on the road where I know rough distances.

And here's the downsides... the front handle is hollow with an open bottom, the pistol grip is small with the fake wrappings that some people hate, it's got the same silly base 'rail' that the flipfury has, the stock is fake wood effect and positioned nowhere near where your shoulder is, though it looks cool. And the big issues... it's VERY back heavy, and the range is nothing to write home about, 50 to 60 feet at best.

It looks cool, the tiny amount of orange and grey offsets the green great, the pump action is smooth, the flip action is nicer than on the flipfury, you can reload three of the drums without flipping them. I'm glad I got one, but due to the weight can't see it getting much regular use.‎
