Nerf Vortex Praxis

If you want a really customizable weapon you can use in a variety of Nerf battles, you probably want to take a look at the Nerf Vortex Praxis Blaster. It’s part of the Vortex line of weapons that shoot little green discs instead of the darts or mini darts.

At Quick Glance

The Praxis comes with a separate magazine so it’s easy to reload. You can decide if you want a two-handed weapon for accuracy, or a one-handed weapon for speed since the shoulder stock is removable. The discs fly really, really far and this gun is pretty accurate. It works with pump-action that is easy to use, and it doesn’t jam like a lot of other Nerf weapons. You can decide whether you want to be a sniper, a front man, or whatever else your team needs without having to bring more than one weapon to the battle.

Better Distance, Longer Ammo Life

If you haven’t tried out a Vortex yet, you don’t know what you’re missing. The discs fly way further than the darts ever did, you can hit someone from 40 feet away. The Praxis comes with ten little green discs that fit into the magazine, which can fit in your pocket. You can buy extra discs and a second magazine for really rapid reloading. The Praxis comes with ten discs, and the magazine holds ten at a time. The discs themselves are a little more than an inch across and fly amazingly far. Be careful, they sting a little at close range. They also blend in on the grass and get lost super easy. Discs are better than darts for a couple of reasons, they fly further and they also don’t have those rubber suction cups that never work. You don’t have to worry about your little brother getting into your arsenal and choking on anything.

The Praxis looks a lot like the Vortex Nitron, but it’s a lot lighter and quieter. It has almost the same interchangeable parts aS the N-Strike Recon CS-6, but with discs instead of darts so the Praxis shoots a lot farther than the Recon. It holds more ammo than a lot of other blasters, and it’s a lot easier to load than a dart weapon. We like the Praxis because it has the speed, accuracy, and ammo to fit any position on the battlefield. It’s lighter than the battery-powered automatic weapons, but it still feels sturdy and solid in your hands.

The Verdict

There’s not a lot bad to say about the Praxis. The discs can be pretty inaccurate outdoors when there is any breeze, and they get lost really easy, but that’s the same with any Vortex weapon. You may find yourself leaving the shoulder stock at home, but you won’t regret the higher ammo capacity the Praxis offers.

I was thinking of what nerf gun to get, and i have never had a vortex blaster. I looked at the range tests for the Nitron, Praxis and Proton. The Praxis shot the furthest of them all, then the Proton and lastly the Nitron. I would never buy the Nitron because it is loud, heavy, expensive and you have to charge it up. The Praxis is wonderful. Its quiet, easy to load, removable stock and only $30 AUS. I would want to see the Praxis with a foregrip mod, a Nitron Scope, a Lightningstorm stock, 20 round magazine, a desert camo and if you can, a small barrel extension.

Thanks for reading and let me know what you think of my combination.

OMG i asked my mom for this one and she bought it for last xmas! I showed her this site: http://nerfguns.me and she went right out and got it w/ me knowing it as a surprise! I will sned her here to see this site bc she might buy me some more!

I had the same kind of problem with mine. It is a little tricky at first to slide the pump action handle back, but do it quicker and a little harder. I know you don’t want to force it, but the more you keep doing that, the slide handle will become easier to slide back.
To round that up,
Just slide the slide handle back faster and a little harder.
Hope that Helped.

Son was given one of these as a christmas present. first nerf gun and loved it

Problem – on emptying cartridge, finding all the disk and reloading it the pump handle is jammed and wont slide back allowing the weapon to load a dic and fire it

any ideas on how to resolve warmly received

i have the vortex praxis its awesome man its really cool!

Dumber than a bag of nickels. - December 27, 2011

This is my worst gun yet. The discs are expensive in refills. I was impressed with the range. Some people say the range is more important than accuracy, but there is a limit. I cannot hit a target 15 feet away, even with no wind. The discs act like frisbees. I have never used this in a war an I hope I never have to. Worst nerf purchase. Like, ever.
Range: 9.5/10
Accuracy: 1.5/10
Jamming: 6/10, sometimes mag won’t go in, springs out.
Capacity: 7/10, 10 discs.
Overall: 5/10
The accuracy makes this gun horrible and unworthy of purchase. Please don’t buy.

Great beat ! I would like to apprentice at the same time as you amend your web site, how can i subscribe for a weblog web site? The account helped me a appropriate deal. I have been tiny bit acquainted of this your broadcast offered bright transparent idea

Great all-round indoor gun, definitely worth the money I paid for it. Extra details on the gun look great, very accurate indoors, range is great indoors, its true that the discs can be tricky to find over darts sometimes due to how they ricochet and the way the discs sorta glide through the air and can find their way into places the darts generally don’t, like under doors, furniture, etc. Personally, I’ve managed to keep track of all my ammo so far, so, if you can keep track of your ammo (which is much more durable than the darts and loads wonderfully into its magazine), and need a great, safe, stock indoor blaster, this is definitely the one for you.
