I think it is about time, I wrote a post about recommendations. I have received a lot of messages, asking about the guns which I use and the ones which I recommend.
So today I will share my list of the best Nerf guns under 20$.
- Maveric Rev-6
It is the younger brother of one of the classic and most loved Nerf gun the Maveric. But it has all the functionality of its older brother, it has fixed few issues and it is in line with the Elite Series. It has a rotating barrel which is quite accurate. It doesn’t jam or lag. It also looks cool and is easy to reload. You can fire six darts i.e. the barrel can hold 6 darts. Just pull the trigger to fire.
- Nerf Elite Strongarm
Another bestselling Nerf blaster which ranks high both on looks and functionality. One of the impressive feature about this gun, is its range which can reach a distance more than 70 feet. To reload you just need to flip the cylinder. It also has a slam fire feature. Which means you just need to hold the trigger and it fires continuously. And by the way, it holds 6 darts at a time.
- Nerf N-Strike Jolt
It is a very small blaster which comes at a retail price of around 5$. It fires just 2 darts, but its design replicates a mini pistol. It can fire up to 40 feet which is quite impressive for its size. It is also fairly accurate. Since they are just two bullets you won’t experience any jamming issues. It is a nice Nerf Gun which I sometimes like to refer as “Cute”.
- Nerf N-Strike Switch Shot EX-3
This is convertible i.e. a wii blaster which can be used as dart blaster also. You can play with it on the Wii and fire with it in the actual world. This is an interesting combination if you ask me. It comes with 3 darts and can fire up to 30 feet. The range is not that great. Also there are a lot of jamming issues you may experience. Buy this only if you love playing on gaming consoles.
- Nerf Rebelle
It is one of the guns which was designed for girls. Gone are the days when girls used to play with dolls and kitchen sets, they can now handle guns. The gun comes with 5 darts which fire an impressive distance of 35 feet. The USP of this gun is its design and Hasbro did a good job in that respect. My little sister loves this.
- Nerf N-Strike Elite Firestrike
This is an interesting gun which has a laser aim. You can fire three darts. You would need AA batteries to operate this. The triangular design might cause problems for few. Next you can also face few issues with the laser after few months use. But the range is quite impressive, I managed to hit 75 feet at an incline. It is a good gun to have below 20$.
These are my top recommendations. If you are looking for the first Nerf gun for your kid this list might be of big help.
