So the quality of this product wasn't the problem, it was figuring out how to make it work!!!!! We sent the first one back because the motor wouldn't work and we thought it was broken. Low and behold he got another motorized Nerf gun on his birthday while waiting for the replacement. And IT didn't work either!!!!! After messing with it for 30min and 3 sets of batteries, my husband took out the weird metal prongs that went between the batteries. Amazingly, the motor started working! So please, please, please, add that little step into the instructions!
Bought two of these for my kids and one arrived and was able to shoot. The second had problems with the airpump, and could not out of the barrel. Overall, they jam fairly easy and are very finicky when it comes to loading the magazine.
Wasn’t very pleased with this AR-L Dart Blaster. At first the blaster had a great feel looked great but as soon as we loaded the mag and made an attempt to use it the darts would get stuck. The kids had a hard time knocking the targets it took a while to get the gun going. The adults also had a hard time, the sights were off.
This is a very tricky gun, didn’t work right off the bat. Everything has to be right. Side door closed and bullets locked in place. But other then that my child about cried when he opened this Christmas morning! It works fine now and he loves it!
I am saddened to hear of your experience with the blaster. Please contact our customer service team at your convenience. I am confident we can help! https://consumercare.hasbro.com/en-us. Have a fun day!
This gun could be cool... it's easy to shoot and it holds alot of bullets. HOWEVER, bullets get stuck in the chamber very easily and it drains batteries quickly. My son played with it for 5 minutes and it was a hassle. My younger son loves it because his little hands don't have to pull any crazy levers... but then I am there having to help trouble shoot with the chamber and batteries. lol.
Son thought it looked awesome and loves the automatic feature. But it does jam from time to time and it is hard to clear the chamber. Especially if you are aggressive with loading the clip or you drop it. And the clip is hard to remove and put back in without trying to slap it in place.
