I would like covering Nerf, but obviously CDX doesn't do Nerf.

Besides, my money goes better towards transformers n' such.

I've got most of the N-Strike stuff, but this is kind of weak since it just takes from what other Nerf ripoff outfits have done and makes it a proper Nerf. The upside is though that the drum will be sold alone as well and works with the other guns.

Nerf SWORDS?!

That's going to TOTALLY change those zombie-war games!

Also, the issue with Nerf isn't really so much capacity as it is automatic versus lever-action. Even the "high-capacity" Nerf guns require to you re-cock the gun after every shot, which somewhat limits the volume of fire you can put out.

I remember the old crank-driven Razorbeast, which I'm surprised they haven't re-released. You could have some fun hooking that up to a low-speed, high-torque motor...

Hehe...the Razorbeast was a classic! I had that puppy and it made for some wonderful Nerf battles!

As for this "Raider Rapid Fire CS-35", it's crap. First of all, it's far from "rapid fire". Cock/shoot in one jerky motion makes it hard to aim. And that drum? Tell me how you're gonna reload that monstrosity in the midst of a firefight!

Y'all wanna know the real gem? Hasbro just reissued (for the second time) the air-powered Rapid Fire 20. Sure, it can "only" hold 20 mini darts compared to the CS-35's 35, but trust me--you will fire them all off in MUCH less time than it takes to load 'em! And that's the beauty of it: reloading's a snap. All twenty barrels are exposed and clustered in the front. As fast as you can plug the mini darts/stefans back in, you're back in the fight. The CS-35 looks like a nightmare.

Check out more on the CS-35 here (and be sure to watch the video...it's wack). Meanwhile, tremble before the might of the Rapid Fire 20!
