Announcing & Reviewing the New Dorm Labs Angled Foregrip

Today, I’m proud to help announce the New Dorm Labs Angled Foregrip! Dorm Labs is a USA based company that prints and sells 3D, fan made Nerf accessories. My usage of it in games and events that I’ve been to the past year has been able to help them refine this grip.

Most people’s idea of a grip if a vertical, up and down attachment of some sort. But some people, myself included, have found that holding the vertical grip at an angle (instead of up and down) is more comfortable. To take advantage of this natural body chemistry for people, firearms companies have made grips that attach at an angle. The grip attaches with two tabs, while four screws are used to secure & clamp them down here the Nerf tactical rails. Due to it’s size, the grip will only work on the Rapidstrike, Retaliator barrel, or Longstrike barrel.

A few others around the world have made their own versions, this is the first opportunity for USA players to access this style of grip. The grip is available for purchase for $14.99 on their site. However, with the exclusive coupon code “basicnerf”, you’ll get 20% off the total cost of the grip! Click here to view and buy it on the Dorm Labs site.

Introducing NarrowBase LLC, a New Nerf 3D Fan Printing Company

The header image used on the NarrowBase.com site.

The need of holding 18 or even 12 dart mag holders has been a bit challenge to many Nerfers out there, due to their size and length. Equipment from other sports such as Airsoft and Paintball, while often doing the job, sometimes makings a person uncomfortable or leaves a person lacking in performance. 3D printing, with rising usage in the world, has yet to meet our needs carrying our Nerf mags/clips. Casual users or people not using the MOLLE sytstem were a bit behind in terms of what gear they could use for their items. Until now.

Lancer Tactical Modular Chest Rig (RRV) Write Up Review & Video

Hey Basic Nerf readers, today is a little bit of a different review then usual. I’ll be doing a gear review on an Airsoft item that I’ve been using in my loadout for the past 7 months. Its called the Lancer Tactical Modular Chest Rig. In this review I’ll go over what the rig comes with, goes over a bit of my experiences with it in the 7 months that I’ve used it to far, and debate on whether or not the rig is worth $60. The Lancer Tactical Modular Chest Rig retails for around $60 USD, and comes with an Admin Pouch, a triple rifle magazine pouch, two general purpose pouches, and a hydration carrier.

Feel free to watch the video version of my review if your more a visual person, and less of a reader.

Airsoft or real steel people, if your here from the internet, feel free to read the review. You might learn a thing or two about the rig.

New Prototype Nerf Blaster in the Works, the N-Strike Demolisher

nerf-demolisher-n-strike-blaster

Woah, just as I was about to go to bed. Prop Weapon Scoop just broke a story on a new blaster. If you haven’t heard of the site, it’s partly run by Nerfenstein, so I would say the site, image, and news are credible. The pictured above blaster is a prototype blaster called the “N-Strike Demolisher”.

According to PWS, “The Nerf Demolisher features two kinds of carnage, regular Nerf darts (10-round clip) and the addition of a ‘Mega dart’ launched from beneath (with room for one extra in the stock area).” The site also says that it’s still pretty much a prototype blaster at the moment, but that it is rumored for a Fall Release Date in the USA.

The blaster looks cool to say the least. We even get a new type of clip in the curved clip! We might get more information this week from the UK TOy Fair which starts Jan. 21. What are your initial thoughts on the blaster?

5 AM PST Update: Prop Weapon Scoop has updated their post with a rumored price point of $39.99 USD. But again that is not confirmed. I’ll reach out to my PR contact and see if we can more information overall on this blaster.
