I picked this up from target a while ago, and it is nothing short of brilliant. As a successor to the Barrel Break, the Rough Cut is everything the barrel break was supposed to be and then some.

Its extremely light, It boasts the range of all elites, has a stepped trigger for single and dual fire, and incorporates slam fire to shoot 8 darts in a second. This is a must have blaster for anyone, no doubts about it.

Let me start by saying that when I was in battle, I was having so much fun with this gun that I took all the darts out of my clip system gun and used them for this one.

The reason this gun gets 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the trigger. I purchased two of these. When I opened them up, one of them would not shoot one at a time like advertised.
The other one initially worked perfectly. It would shoot one at a time or two at a time. But... after about 3 hours of continuous use, (mini nerf war) the trigger started to have problems. This one would only shoot one at a time. No matter how hard I pulled the trigger it would not shoot both of the darts. Sometimes it would even shoot off the second dart as I released the trigger. The strangest thing was that I let it rest overnight, and when I woke up it was working perfectly again. I have never seen a Nerf gun "heal" like that.

Apart from the trigger, this gun works wonderfully! I can safely say this will be my new favorite side arm because you can put a strap on it and have easy and instant access to it.

Pros:
Elite Ranges
Comfortable to hold/use
Perfect sidearm
Mutishot!
Easy to reload
As long as there's a dart on either side, it will fire both

Cons:
Faulty trigger
Has trouble after several hours of continuous use (but magically gets better if you let it rest)

Overall great Nerf gun!
I recommend this to anyone who likes Nerf!

I bought a number of Nerf guns this weekend (including the Retaliator, Swarmfire and Alpha Trooper), and I gotta say despite being the cheapest of the bunch this has gotta be my favourite. It feels good, it looks good and it sure fires good. The only thing it's missing is a shell carrier to go along the top rail...when you can fire off all your darts in a second or two it would be handy to have a reload close at hand. A less elegant weapon for a less civilized age. Groovy!

Our twins were given a pair of these for their 10th birthday. Within 2-3 hours, one of them came to me complaining that his blaster had jammed. Being a jack-of-all-trades, handyman, Mr. Fix-It type, I disassembled the gun, and discovered that two teeth had broken off one of the internal gears. Feeling fairly confident that the gun was toast, thanks to the defective gear, but wanting to show the kids that I was making every effort to get their toy working again, I reassembled the gun with everything back in proper position. However, as expected, the first attempt to cock the gun resulted in it once again jamming exactly as it had been when it was brought to me.

The other gun still appears to be perfectly fine, and the kids (the twins and their younger brother) love it and the two smaller Nerf guns they already had.

On the one hand, as far as I'm aware, Nerf still has a pretty good reputation for quality and reliability, and as I mentioned, the other gun is still working fine at this point (two days later), so I'd like to just chalk this up to a defective gear. On the other hand, one would expect a toy which - based on commercials and documentation - seems to be expected to take a beating, to last longer than two to three hours before experiencing a catastrophic failure.

I'm torn right now between calling and wasting my time waiting on hold for an indeterminate amount of time, to see if I might be able to get the gun replaced; simply paying the $18-$20 for a replacement; or simply chalking it up as a loss and moving on.

UPDATE: Since I'm a stay-at-home dad right now, and only really have housework to do, I decided to go the route of calling them, and where the first time I called (prior to writing this review), I'd ended up on hold for an extended period, and had to hang up to take care of other things, when I called this time, I got right through. The customer service representative I spoke with was pleasant and understanding (and spoke perfect English lol), and immediately e-mailed me a postage-paid return shipping label, so that I can return the gun to Nerf, and receive a replacement. Cudos to Nerf and Hasbro's customer service!

I have both the Nerf Barrel Break IX-2 and the Air Zone Triple Shot -- and this thing has just replaced both of them.

I always liked the feel of the Barrel Break -- it's kind of a double-barreled sawed-off shotgun with kind of the look of a blunderbuss. Even though it only loads two little foam darts at a time, there's something oddly satisfying about the weird breach-loading mechanism on it. Unfortunately, it's never been a practical dart gun for a war among office cubes, or anywhere else for that matter -- after you fire your two darts, you rarely get a quiet moment long enough to reload it.

I also liked the idea of the Triple Shot -- four salvos of three darts each, and with a straightforward shotgun style priming system to ready each triplet of darts for firing. However, the "pump action" always did feel a little weird -- just a little bit like something is close to breaking such that it never seemed a good idea to do it too quickly.

Now comes this thing... The same one-shot vs. two-shot selectivity of the Barrel Break along with a trigger grip that has a similar good feel to it. Yet, it comes with the practicality of being able to fire off four sets of shots like the Triple Shot, but a pump action that is much quieter and much smoother. On top of all of this, it also slam-fires.

The only way it could be better is if it were "3x4" that could fire four triplets of shots (like the Triple Shot) or if it could fire all of its shots at once (like the Tetra Shot or the Hornet AS-6 -- neither of which ever actually worked right).

On a practical note, it would be nice to have some place, either on the tactical rail or somewhere else on its casing, to hold an extra set of eight darts. But admittedly, this is nitpicking.

To sum this up, this is one of the few Nerf dart guns that I've actually taken an instant liking to right out of the box -- I highly recommend this one!

This is the best Nerf gun. We have sine purchased a second. This model beats the revolver and the magazine fed Nerf guns since there are no jams or misfires due to improper alignment. It's not too heavy and it pumps easily. The trigger is made to shoot two or one shot at a time depending on how far you pull. It doesn't matter where you put the darts in; the gun knows which to fire next; so reloads can happen on the fly and without slowing you down in the shootout with your kids, neighbor’s kids and any sad soul who dares attempt to challenge you to a “everyone against Dad” battle that stretches from the upstairs, to the main level, to the basement. I buy packs of 75 darts, open them up, and say let the battle begin. Fun ensues and I get credit for being an awesome dad.

Wow, what a solid piece of kit! This blaster is impressive from the moment you pick it up, looking at it reminds me of the Gnasher from Gears of War. Powerful and solid performance, and looks fierce. Lots of ways to fire as well: two dart spread with a full trigger pull, eight single blasts with a half trigger pull (which takes a disciplined finger), or the most fun, Slam Fire! The elite darts travel very far but are a bit wild, but if you want accuracy, try throwing some Micro/Sucker darts in this! Straight and true flight, if I get within 10-15 ft of you I'm taking out both of your eyeballs with this thing!

Only a few things that I would change, the priming slide feels solid,but is just a bit too small and awkwardly shaped to be totally comfortable. Also, its a real shame that the Ammo Holder attachment from the Barrel Break was left out. Would be a killer attachment with this blaster! But at only $19.99 this is a steal and a must buy! Overall, Im in love with the Roughcut, I cant put it down!

I love the idea of this gun, the ability to load 8 darts instead of the three from the n-strike _________ gives me a great advantage over my other coworkers. However, the darts don't stay in the barrels in the front! 50% of the time, when loading the gun, one of the darts will "pop" out of the barrel about halfway as if the dart I'm loading pushed it out via pressure. Often, a dart or two will pop out half way of the barrel will loading, firing, or if the gun is tapped.

Also, I didn't get the blue/white design featured in the picture. I was given a gun that was primarily white with an orange stripe. Not the biggest deal in the world, but it doesn't match any of my other n-strike guns - all of which are blue! Kind of disappointing.

I've owned multiple Mavericks, a Rampage, a Vulcan, I've played with the Longshot and various prototype nerf guns before they came out, like the Maverick's successor, the Strongarm. Yet this freaking Roughcut is the most fun I've had with a nerf gun ever, and I haven't even ambushed anyone yet. It's powerful, quick and easy to reload from scavenging darts... And smart I guess is the only way to describe the way it shoots from any of the loaded 8 chambers. If you have one dart in the bottom, and one in top, it shoots them both. Any combination you may frantically ram in during reload. I love it. Best $19.99 I've spent in a long time.
