Nerf guns have become popular replacements for real guns, since they still allow you to shoot stuff, but without the dangerous consequences. Apart from the fact that they’re insanely cheap (which is something you can’t say for a lot of hobbies), they’re also flexible and allow for all kinds of mods such that a modding community was born. The Nerf N-Strike Recon CS-6 is known for being even more customizable (if that’s even possible with Nerf guns) because of its five interchangeable parts that can be disassembled and reassembled in any way.
In this Nerf N-Strike Recon CS-6 review, we’ll take a look at the aspects, both good and bad, of this DIY-type Nerf gun.
The Nerf N-Strike Recon CS-6
For aspiring modders, the Nerf N-Strike Recon CS-6 is a great entry point into the world of modding, as the device allows you to interchange parts and see for yourself the changes in performance and ergonomics after every modification. Don’t let the rather traditional rifle-type design fool you; it can easily change its form as the user wishes! In the next sections of this Nerf Recon review, we’ll take a more in-depth look at some of the aspects of this gun and whether or not its customizability impairs or improves the device.
The Recon is not battery-operated and therefore won’t emit loud humming sounds. The only noise this Nerf gun makes would be the mechanical sounds you’d expect from sliding and pulling the trigger. That being said, the sliding does seem to be a bit noisier than the usual pump and trigger Nerf guns, which makes the Recon not so good at sneak attacks. In an outdoor setting with more ambient noise, however, this may not be significant.
The Recon doesn’t have a rapid fire mode, which may turn-off people who want to run around shooting more than one opponent at a time. If you’re not a very tactical person, then you may need a bit of time getting used to the Recon’s relatively low firing rate (1-2 darts per second). So far, most Nerf N-Strike Recon CS-6 reviews haven’t particularly touched upon this aspect in a negative manner, since a lot of people who use the Recon find the firing rate adequate for outdoor tactical Nerf wars.
The Recon has an impressive range of 25-40 feet. With the barrel attachment, the ranges of the darts fired seemed a bit more consistent, but the tradeoff was that the ranges were shorter. Some people have reported getting over 50 feet ranges in their Nerf Recon CS-6 review articles, so in a sense, the range will depend on how well you mod your Recon (and of course, the wind).
Because of the Recon’s customizability, the ergonomics of the product will depend on how you assemble the interchangeable parts. In its default arrangement, however, it looks like a conventional rifle, which is comfortable enough to use in most cases. What’s great about the Recon is the jam door that allows you to get a stuck bullet out easily (while this may not happen frequently, it could still happen, possibly at the most inconvenient time).
The Recon could easily survive multiple falls (though being made of interchangeable parts, some may fall off if dropped in concrete). Despite being composed of interchangeable parts, however, the Recon doesn’t rattle and feels very well-built.
A lot of people love the Nerf N-Strike Recon CS-6 possibly because it has introduced them to the world of modding. The Recon allows you to build your dream gun in ways you’d never have imagined, without the need for power tools. The Recon is quite expensive, though, so you’ll want to check out Amazon since it’s usually a lot cheaper there than in most stores.
