Printed blasters can be very different than normal blasters, so please read this whole thing before firing!!
The Magpie & Viper are revolver-style blasters. Anyone who’s shot any revolver knows that the revolver mechanism needs some TLC.
#1: Check to make sure nothing was damaged in shipping
Sometimes blasters require a slight adjustment depending on how they arrive. If you notice any cracked parts or dislodged parts, don’t fire until you’ve put them back.
Always email us with any questions! We replace anything damaged in shipping.
#2: Stop firing IMMEDIATELY if no dart comes out
If no dart comes out of the blaster, you might think that pulling the trigger harder and longer will help.
PULLING THE TRIGGER HARDER WILL DAMAGE THE BLASTER!
Stop firing immediately!
If not dart comes out, it’s probably because you have a jam.
Clear the jam, then continue firing 🙂
*If you continue to fire without first clearing the jam, you risk blowing out the motors*
#3. Load your cylinder with the best dart fit
For best performance, be careful with every dart you load into you cylinder.
Don’t load darts that…
– Are too fat (see the video)
– Are too skinny (ie, fall out of the cylinder)
– Are too squished/old
#4. Test the cylinder rotation before firing
The Magpie trigger pull is very unique.
People tell us it requires some concentration to get it right.
1 trigger pull does 3 things: revvs the flywheels, engages the motors, and rotates the cylinder.
*Pull slowly at first to get a feel for it*
Firing the blaster too fast all at once could damage your blaster
#4: Have a TON of fun
The Magpie is SUCH a fun blaster. Make all your friends jealous 😀
