- Let her rip! This intense blaster holds up to 35 NERF darts. Choose single-shot mode or slam-fire mode for multi-shot power! Features an adjustable shoulder stock and a tactical rail. 35 clip-system darts included.
The N-Strike Raider CS-35 is sure to make short work of your Nerf-blaster foes.
The CS-35 features a durable plastic frame, intended for intense play. It is based a classic Tommy gun design, complete with a drum magazine. This magazine can be used as an accessory with any other compatible N-Strike blasters. The CS-35 comes with an adjustable stock, which you adjust to fit the length of your arm. It also has a tactical rail, which you can equip with a variety of N-Strike accessories.
With a 35-dart capacity, the CS-35 has a truly massive payload of foam. Because of this, you might expect it to be a bit cumbersome, but it is actually surprisingly mobile. The blaster is lightweight enough to sprint with, and you'll be able to blind-fire around a corner with ease. You also shouldn't have to worry about running out of darts. The CS-35 comes with 35 darts. The darts are gentle and soft, so younger kids will be able to get in on the action.
There is one downside to the huge dart capacity: each dart has to be reloaded individually, so preparing the blaster for play can take several minutes. Still, the fun you will have is well worth these moments of tedium.
Blast Your Enemies Away
The CS-35 fires reliably in battle, and is free of the jamming that often plagues Nerf guns. It uses a pneumatic pump to propel the darts, allowing you to be in control of the rate of fire. The pump allows for two blasting modes -- multiple darts at a time, or single shots. The multiple-dart mode is particularly fearsome, since it will empty all 35 darts in a matter of seconds.
What's in the Box
Nerf N-Strike Raider CS-35 blaster, drum magazine and 35 darts.
The blaster carries up to 35 darts in the drum magazine and uses a pump-action system for rapid fire. The tactical rail is compatible with most N-strike accessories and the adjustable stock delivers a comfortable fit for kids six and up. View larger.

let me tell you now, this is THE BEST NERF GUN YET. Below are listed my pros and cons, but the pros far outweigh the cons.
Dart capacity(you can keep shooting for a really long time before reloading)
Dual fire modes
really fast "auto" mode
easy to fix jams
Long reload time
wide dispersal(can be good or bad, but takes forever to find all the darts you thought you shot in a straight line)
Large drum takes up space
YOU SHOULD BUY IT!!!
Pump-action: much better than previous designs, closer to either a bolt action or the slide on an semi-automatic pistol (without the semi-automatic part...)
Loading is much better (not one ruined dart, unlike when I owned a longshot or with my friend's recon)
Slam fire. Prior to purchase, I didn't exactly know what they meant by "slam fire," but when I found out, I was hooked. This probably makes this the N-Strike gun with the fastest rate of fire (without requiring 6 d-cell batteries...)
Since I purchased before Sept. 30th, I'm ellegible for 50 free darts from Hasboro.
However, there is one major drawback (and a couple minor ones):
Firing does vary. By this, I mean that one shot it could have a range of 30 feet, while the very next shot could just fall to the ground after leaving the barrel, and this doesn't seem to depend on single shot or slam fire mode.
Minor detail: modifying the blaster to remove the air restrictor proves a bit more difficult, since I can't seem to seperate the barrel components to get to the air restrictor.
The drum mechanism is surprisingly reliable - at least for now. We've just taken ownership, so there's a lot of wear-and-tear to experience! We'll see. However, we decided to review early because there were some reviews that describe a jamming or difficulty with the loading mechanism. Straight out of the box, ours wouldn't load either...until we clicked in the clip. Then? Fine. So maybe the other reviewers hadn't attached their drum or clip yet?
Anyway, I'd say that if you were buying Nerf guns for your army, there are two you really should have - the Raider and the little single-shot "pistols." The rest are - in my opinion - thunk up by brand-extension wonks who just want to sell toys. Which is fine...but if your Nerfite really wants to PLAY, forget the features and just go with reliable firing.
The "vulcan" is, in my opinion, worthless btw - it fires slower than a 3 year old throwing ping pong balls and requires batteries. Plus, it's ungainly and...well...get a Raider.
It does fire fast and the clip that holds 35 darts is pretty cool. We thought it would have been a good idea to have the round cover unsnap so you could load them faster, but as it stands, you have to load them one at a time through the end of it. It's OK though, not a big deal. It actually works and doesn't jam up at all. We got the gun from Toys R Us and it had a bonus of 100 extra darts that came with it which made it an exceptional deal because buying the extra darts can get a little expensive. Would buy this item again.
Drum Magazine (huge capacity!)
Pump action means you never have to take your hand off the gun to cock it, so you never lose sight when shooting an opponent.
Slam Fire mode means you hold down the trigger, and just pump the gun and it shoots really fast. Although you lose accuracy.
Retractable Stock is removable and can be put on other guns, like the Recon. Plus it looks like a real gun stock.
Comes with lots of darts!
With the bulky drum magazine, it leans to one side when you hold it, but if you let it rest on your arm, it doesn't matter.
Didn't come with any other accessories for the railing system like a sight or anything.
Get this gun, it's one of the best Nerf guns yet.
