It's fundamentally a Specter reshell, as we all know.

Interesting things I noticed when opening it up as follows:

1. If you're going to open the blaster, DO NOT put the bolt bits in beforehand. I had to saw the one of I put on!
2. Less dead space in plunger tube compared with the Specter, possibly explaining superior performance compared with the specter (I can't remember the chrono data, but Sqwuawk was 67ish average over 10 Accustrike Darts, Specter 60fps.. admitedly my Chrono is sometimes suspect, but it was better even if we can't put a figure on it!)
3. Attachment rail bits no longer have springs behind them, just a little play in the fit to enable attachment.
3. Rear stock is removable with blaster open. Remove it and you end up with something looking suspiciously similar to that Doomlands Impact Zone Reshell!

Nice work jolt,
Could you do a drop cylinder mod on this and would it take standard spectre cylinders.
Never had hands on a spectre whats the mod potential.

First on the net 😎

Nice review, It would be interesting to see if the darts are noticeably more accurate.
It just annoys  that it's that big but only holds 5 darts, it should deffinalty be mag fed.

Ha ha Very Happy beat me to it Jolt, just picked mine up this morning and was going to post a review tonight. Good work, nice to see the internals before I crack it open. I've picked up a falcon fire as well so I'll put up some pics at some point.

Update:

1. Improved performance compared with Elite blasters due to stretched spring, less dead space and possibly better optimised barrel for dart size.

2. Performance with Koosh darts VERY hit and miss. I think the new Accustrike Dart size may be part of a planned obsolescence for Elite darts, although I can't verify this yet by checking dart post size in barrels.

3. Darts which don't fly straight out catch on lip near the start of the faux barrel, exacerbating issues above.

In conclusion, works well with Accustrike Darts. Not a Nerf War blaster, though, until Accustrike darts start to be more dominant in the dart pool.
