A few mysterious shots of the box art have popped up before, but they were unconfirmed until now. Nerf has officially released the Sonic Praxis, and it’s on store shelves right now (I’m assuming). Here’s a shot of the new blaster when fully assembled, and equipped with a Lumitron magazine.
I’m not tottally convinced on the color, but the inner glowing effect does look nice. I’m sure it would be a blast to run around with it at night and pretend you’re firing radioactive ammunition at your friends. 🙂
Blaster internals are identical to the original Nerf Vortex Praxis. The blaster uses a shotgun pump priming system and a torsion spring to launch disc-style ammunition up to an advertised 60 feet (though wind can make them go further). The blaster also sports a tactical rail, bandolier attachment points, and a symmetrical clip release system. Upon purchase, the box includes a stock and one 10 round vortex clip.
Sometimes Kimosabi hurts my brain. I can’t fathom how he came up with this one, but he’s taken a Raider ~ you know, one of those big 35 dart drum, slam fire, two handed blasters that put a vulcan to shame? ~ and has turned the thing into an SMG style PISTOL. The new mini-raider now has a Deploy fore-grip, and even uses some boy scout bling as a priming handle. It still retains it’s slam fire ability and he states that it can now launch stock foam darts up to 70 feet. Wizard folks, he’s a wizard.
