Like the N-Strike Spectre REV-5, it sports a tactical rail on top of the blaster and has the ability to use both shoulder stocks and barrel extensions.
The cylinder is not rotated by trigger pull; instead, it is turned by priming the blaster. To prime the blaster, pull back on the white slider behind the tactical rails on the blaster. Pulling the slide back when it is already primed will not rotate the cylinder again. This prevents jams that result in the incomplete turn of the cylinder. With its stock and barrel extension removed, it looks similar to the N-Strike Elite Strongarm but smaller. There is a priming indicator in the rear mounting nub for shoulder stocks.
This blaster was not designed for ambidextrous use. As such, some left-handed users may find its operation to be awkward. The folding stock that comes packaged with this blaster has a large hinge on the right hand side, which can get in the way while priming the blaster. However, this is remedied by simply unfolding or removing the stock. The revolving cylinder on this blaster flips out to the left, which may be awkward to reload if the user uses their right hand for reloading.
When the action can change by the minute, kids need a quick, powerful blaster that can change with it! Customize the 3-piece Spectre Rev-5 blaster for whatever the mission or battle requires. Attach the folding stock for steadier shots, and add the barrel extension to help the darts hit their target. Remove them both to create a compact blaster for stealth operations! Take aim and unleash 5 darts in a row from the rotating, 5-dart barrel, and send them flying up to 75 feet. The Nerf N-Strike Elite Spectre Rev-5 blaster has a tactical rail and comes with 5 authentic Nerf Elite darts designed for distance.
The N-Strike Elite Spectre REV-5 is an upgraded re-release of the 2010 N-Strike Spectre REV-5.
Reloading and firing
To reload the Spectre, press the cylinder release button on the left side of the blaster and load up to five darts into the chambers. Place the cylinder back into the Spectre’s shell.
Pull the slide back and let it release back to its starting position. Pull the trigger to fire a dart.
- This has a different air restrictor system than its N-Strike counterpart, using a similar one-door system that the Swarmfire and Strongarm have.
- It is one of the few N-Strike blasters that were upgraded to N-Strike Elite, but kept the same name, a few others being the Rayven CS-18 and Alpha Trooper CS-18.
- This blaster, its N-Strike predecessor, and the IonFire are the only Nerf blasters that are compatible with barrel extensions and are also not a clip system blaster.
