In this review, we will take a look at one of the most famous Nerf Gun models from Hasbro: The Nerf Maverick REV-6. The Nerf Maverick came out a decade ago and has since been one of the most popular blasters in the world! Used by children as well as by adults, it brings fun in breathtaking game battles at home and everywhere.
- Very simple handling
- Robust construction
- Suitable for all ages
- Easy to modify
- In the standard version too small range
You are not so long in the nerf scene and the Nerf Maverick is known to you? Even if you have not been around for a long time, you have certainly not passed the Strongarm. Well, similarity recognized? Right, the Nerf Strongarm is the offshoot of Maverick in the elite series. That many see the Maverick REV-6 as a sign of Nerf is no wonder. After all, she was repeatedly reissued in different nerf series.
Design and ergonomics of the REV-6
The Nerf Maverick features a distinctive character, which is based on a revolver – just as cowboys used to wear it. This Nerf Gun is compact enough to be mobile as a second blaster, but still easy to handle. On the other hand, it can also easily be stored in a drawer or small pocket in nerf pauses.
At the Nerf Maverick, you will find a Tactical Rail on which you can add any Nerf accessories. Also, this blaster is equipped with a 6-drum magazine. That this with a little imagination, however, does not have to be the maximum limit, have already shown many Nerf fans. But for that, you should just as little hand and skill to prove 😉What we want to emphasize is the handle – especially for large hands nicely handy. But even the little ones should have no problems with it.
As already explained, the Nerf Maverick already honors the various Nerf series with his presence. Therefore, they are also found in the most diverse colors. A small listing in the following:
- Yellow, Black, Orange, Gray (N-Strike Standard)
- Blue, Yellow, Gray, Orange (Original / Midnight)
- Clear / Clear, Orange (Clear Series)
- Green Clear, Orange (Sonic Series)
- Mainly orange, little white and black (Gear up series)
- White, Dark Gray, Orange (Whiteout Series)
- Mainly White, Orange, Gray (N-strike Elite Repaint (2014))
However, most of the models are no longer available – either because they are out of print or because the series has only been marketed for a short time. However, what is remarkable is that the Elite Repaint is not in the typical Elite colors. How do we get it? Well, we trust in the correctness of Nerf Wiki, and we also hope that we do it right.
Handling and performance of the Nerf Maverick
With the Nerf Maverick, you can fire up to two darts per second, depending on how fast you are – that is, the empty magazine balloon within 3 seconds. In principle, you only have to pull the sled back before each shot and then press the trigger. For this, you should take one hand at a time. Bound darts came, but not too often. Firing too fast, however, can increase the frequency of jammed darts. Stays, therefore, better at approx. One shot per second. Over time, you will also find the perfect fire rate for you.
Unfortunately, the Nerf Maverick is a big stain on the standard model. The Datafile, unfortunately, fly no further than about 11 meters. However, this can be remedied with a tuning spring. The installation is fixed and is also easy to accomplish through the installation instructions.
Even if this blaster is considered a revolver and you could assume that it is one-handed to use, however, this is not so simple. The background is that before each shot the slide must be withdrawn. If you still want to shoot with two Mavericks at the same time, you can hold the two sleds against each other and to pull the Blaster in the opposite direction to make the darts ready for shooting. This eats, however, some time. Therefore, stay calm at a – even a Nerf Maverick makes a lot of fun!
Because this Nerf Gun is quite cheap, it is also a classic candidate for modding to increase the performance (in addition to the already mentioned tuning spring). Corresponding instructions can be found on-mass if you do not already have your ideas😀
The Nerf Maverick REV-6 is the perfect Nerf starter model in the blaster world for big and small. Not for nothing, you can find it in the most diverse nerf series – it has proven itself regularly! So it’s only up to you with the Maverick to experience breathtaking game battles at your home or garden! With a little modding you can also use it in Nerf Battles and make the opponent Nerf fire under the butt, but last but not least, the Maverick is also very suitable for Cosplay and LARP fans.
