Well, it looks like the Nerf mod fan’s wishes have been answered!Just like the LongsShot and Stampede, it appears that the new N-Strike Elite line will have direct plungered blasters. Direct Plunger system blasters get more ranges then reverse plunger blasters. It looks like the Elite line will be here to stay. Go here for more photos.
