Buy a Long Shot. It's the only Magazine fed Nerf gun that uses a plunger syatem. The rest are oversized inverse plungers. These inverse plunger guns can only hit 60' when modified extremely well, and shoot 20-25' outa the box. A Long Shot can hit over 100' when modified extremely well, and hits 30'-40' outa the box. It also comes with a pistol, bipod, scope, 2-3 mags, and 12-18 shots. You can also mod the long shot to be pump action, and have the ROF of the raider! Ls=obvious choice.

If you are getting a nerf gun, I would suggest a Longshot or a Raider.
If you are going with Buzz Bee (don't) get a berserker.

About buzz bee: A suggestion if you are getting the hornet. Get the tetra strike instead. It is WAY cheaper ($89HKD or around 9.3 euros) and it is much easier to holster (methinks)

Don't get the recon... it's just... I don't know. It's not powerful, and it jams a LOT...
There are better ones...

You can't cock it quickly, and the bullets get messed up easily.

you need to use fluid steady movements and it will last forever (when the raider jams it eats the darts up!

I had a recon, and it sucked, then broke, then I dropped dart guns for a couple years.

then I got back into it, saw what they had, and realized they are still over priced, but have improved slightly.

I now have a Deploy with the recon barrel (which makes it look like an M4, without its more of a famas thing, plus it adds more tacrails). the thing I hate about nerf guns is the lasers and flashlights all suck. I guess, for the distance most of them fire at, its decent, but for two dollars at a bubble gum like machine, I got a really good laser pointer. and a led flash light for the same price.

my real problem is that they went through extra work and plastic to make an air restrictor on the recon.

anyway, I'm planning on getting a stampede with a battery mod so it shoots twice as fast. and a drum mag, because at the rate it shoots with a battery mod, you really need 35 rounds. I just hope I can find a cheap one on ebay, or nerf starts selling them seperatly, or I mod one.

commenting on buzzbee, I want a rapid fire rifle, but cant get them in Canada. even Amazon wont ship it to me. any suggestions?

personnally im a fan of the recon, cheap, easy to use, and can fit into a backpack for those who carry it around a campus that doesnt allow them for HvZ, i have never had a problem with it jamming (unlike the maverick which i had to cut off a piece to keep it from jamming),  to stop jamming use smooth fluid motions when priming it for fire. and it is easy to mod if your into that.... i am... lol

after the recon my suggestion is the raider, only because it is REALLY easy to use and comes with a monster clip the

Longshot is pretty good, but you never need to really shoot it as far as its max distance, plus then there are a lot of other things to account for such as wind and such, only buy this if you dont want to mod it as no real heavy modding is needed

so let me sum up:
Recon for if your not planning on spending much
Raider if your gonna burn through amm0 (not too easy to modd though)
Longshot if your not gonna mod

you may ask why i think all this, over the past year ive been playing a lot of HvZ on 3 college campuses in my state and have used all nerf guns currently on the market... at 1 point so many friends got turned that i had 8 nerf guns including 2 Vulcans... but having used all of them i have my preferences for certain situations.... and a last note: the Deploy is a recon reshelled AS WILL BE ANY OTHER REVERSE PLUNGER SYSTEM

not that one! It's a recon reshell. so are the deploy, and the raider. if you want a mag fed,  go for a long shot.

The raider is the only recon reshell (maybe the deploy too) that is worth it. Get it for the mags and the stock. The gun itself is okay too, because of slam fire. Drum clip + modded Longshot = fun
