I just got this today (Literally not 10 minutes ago), and I love it. ^_^
Some people don't like the bull-pup design, but I'm okay with it, as it makes me think of the SC-20k in Splinter Cell. I recommend holding the gun with the left hand on the trigger, or not using the Tech Clip (The battery box tends to get in the way using my left hand). The blaster itself has two tactical rails, one on the top and another on the right side. The carry handle is convenient, and is good for when you don't have the Tactical Vest to carry it with. I have mine configured with the Retaliator Barrel Extender and the Assault Grip.
PROS:
Cool Design
Seems to fire Glow Darts more accurately
Semi-Auto works as fast as you pull the trigger
Barrel Extenders don't wobble

NEUTRAL:
Semi-Auto works as fast as you pull the trigger (x.x)
Batteries make it a little heavy if your younger

BAD:
Firefly Tech Clip gets in the way for right-handed users

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.

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.

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

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.
