So the Nerf Elite line has been out for a good 4ish months now.
Just this week, an Elite Alpha Trooper CS-12 was leaked. As it stands, ALL the Nstrike blasters have been given an elite version with the exception of the Longstrike, Reflex, and Deploy (Seriously who wants a Deploy). Seems like Nstrike was really a 5-year-long detour from modding by nerf. We should have gotten Direct Plungers in the 1st place.
Ah well, recently my M4 Recon broke it's plunger for the 3rd time. Screw it, I'm scrapping that thing. Don't worry, a Retaliator M4 will rise to take it's place, and the rest of the parts will go towards future projects.
It improves the ranges of dart blasters dramatically. 17/32 seems to work great for my reverse-plunger springers too. Have not actually brass breached it, just shoved about 12 cm of brass into the barrel of a recon, no seal, just held in the plunger tube by friction. Stuck a streamline in and it fire so much better. :O Now to rebarrel my recon with brass....
