Review: Nerf Elite Rough Cut 2x4 & Internals
The Rough Cut 2x4 is a Nerf shotgun-like blaster in the N-Strike Elite series. It shoots 2 darts at once, like the Barrel Break, but there's also a single-fire mode: When the trigger is halfway pulled, only one dart shoots out. The barrel in front holds up to 8 darts. What's a really cool feature, too, is the dart detector. It detects 2 darts, whatever the barrel location, and shoots them. So you can put in the darts wherever you want, it'll always shoot 2. To cock the gun, a pump handle is located on the bottom. Slamfire is also included in this, with which you can shoot all 8 darts rapidly. But if slamfired too fast, the gun totally jams up and it can take up to minutes to clear the jam. On the tactical rail you'll rather use the Barrel Break dart holder than a scope, because it's hard to aim with a spreadshot gun. Also featuring a direct plunger system, the Rough Cut can fire up to 60ft/18m flat. There is no range difference between single- and doubleshot. In my opinion the Rough Cut 2x4 is the first really good Nerf shotgun with spreadshot and a pump handle, it actually is my favorite gun right now. At only 20$, anyone seeking a very cool-looking Nerf gun with great ranges should really get a Rough Cut. If you have any questions, just drop a comment!
