Battery life seems very good.
The Real Mike
Also, both this newer version of the Rayven and the older all-green version, have proven to be better than the new Stryfe flywheel-based dart gun.

Emptying the clip is as simple as holding down the power button and pulling the trigger as fast as you can.

The original version of the Rayven (i.e., the original all-green version) was a pretty good dart gun, if you happen to like the "bull-pup" configuration (i.e., having the ammo clip behind the location of the trigger).

I'll be honest and admit that I'm not a fan of this configuration -- there are plenty of good technical reasons why a real firearm should be made in a bull-pup configuration for use in close-quarters indoor combat situations, and both the police and military do like them for such purposes. But for a foam dart gun, the only reason to do such a thing is for looks, because in a dart gun, it just means that you're requiring the barrel to be longer, which can only put extra drag on a foam dart -- in short, for foam darts, shorter barrels are better. Also, in these foam dart guns, it means that using a drum-type magazine becomes incredibly awkward, since it's constantly bumping up against your torso and the inside of your arm.

However, setting aside my pet peeves about the Rayven's bull-pup configuration, I must say that this is an excellent flywheel-based dart gun in almost every other way -- and a very definite improvement over the original version. The clip insertion and removal is very smooth, with the button used to release a clip being very easy to get to and operate. The jam door on the top (right above the clip) opens wide to reveal a nice wide opening into the casing so that you can really get your fingers on a jammed dart and pull it out quickly and easily. The orange front-most tip of the barrel (where the darts come shooting out) is designed to allow the attachment of various barrel extensions from other Nerf guns, which adds some versatility.

What can I say? This is a major improvement on the last rayven. I own both guns, using both for hvz on my campus. The old rayven had jamming problems and didn't shoot very far. Both of these things were fixed in the new blaster. Darts fly out of the barrel and, other than the inherent fish tailing that come with all nerf darts, it is accurate. I'm still worried about the jam door, but with enough practice you can learn how to efficiently prime the motors and take advantage of the semi-auto firing of the rayven.

Sweet fly wheelblaster... Motor is quieter than the previous version. Range is doubled...!!! Recommended buy!!! Downside is the number of batteries it uses (4 for fly wheel, 3 for Magazine lights)...

I have both the stryfe and the elite rayven. The rayven is quieter, has better range and is about as accurate (maybe a little better). Range is not as good as the retaliator, but rate of fire is better. Battery life seems very good. The elite rayven makes a good choice for primary.

When I was a kid we played guns a lot, but never had anything this cool. My oldest son who is 8 wanted one so I checked it out and ordered one for him and his younger brother (6). They love these guns and play with them quite a bit. My oldest even made a video demo showing me one of his friends before we got them, which I thought was cool.

The gun itself seems durable and should last a while. Loading the clip is easy and additional darts a cheap. Emptying the clip is as simple as holding down the power button and pulling the trigger as fast as you can. Only con is they take lots of batteries.

This is a pretty good semi-auto Nerf gun. Like many other reviewers, I am not a fan of the configuration of the blaster. But the other features of the Rayven are fine. It fires far and accurately, but the trigger is a bit heavy for a semi-auto blaster. Its clip and glowing darts are also cool. The unjamming door above the chamber is big enough, unlike the Stryfe. But, like all other semi-auto Nerf dart firing devices, it fails in the heat of a Nerf battle. I recommend this gun, but compare it to the Stryfe before you buy it.

Pros:
fires far
very accurate (although hard to aim)
cool clip and darts (If you care)
big access door

Cons:
bulky and hard to aim
heavy trigger for a semi-auto blaster
extra barrel reduces range

added this to my Nerf arsenal and it quickly took over as my favorite. combining both the accuracy at the longstrike with the fire rate of the barricade and compacting it down it down into an easily portable package.

Firstly it has more of a bullpup mag behind trigger layout which puts its barrel length on par with the longstrike while still being considerably shorter. plus it accepts barrel extensions which allows for even more versatility. Flywheel firing system allows for fast firing, and still has enough punch to launch darts accurately across the house.

Now, the gimmick on this one is its glow in the dark darts and uv mag, which really seem to work alright in the raven but are much brighter if used in a plunger fired cs gun instead. They do have a long glow time though and look pretty cool flying through the air. Though I gotta say, it seems like the elite series doesn't have as many little extra things as the original N-strike series.

Just a note though, it does jam. Especially if using older darts or if the "chamber" cover isn't latched. Though I expect all nerf guns to at some point have a dart that doesn't fire, and I've had all but one do that, and out of all of them, this one is the easiest to clear, as you simply remove the clip and give the dart a simple shove down the barrel through the chamber door. (or really if you have thin fingers you don't even need to pull the clip out, but pulling the clip will often remove the jammed dart and let it fall to the floor.)
