The Maverick Nerf N-Strike is a gun that works well, but not as well as the Nerf N-Strike Elite Strongarm. The Maverick: The Strongarm
The first thing you should know: the Maverick is old. It is the predecessor of the Strongarm. Just like the Recon is the predecessor of the Retaliator. It is not as powerful or as durable as the Strongarm. Another flaw of the Maverick is it lacks Slamfire. Slamfire is where you hold down on the trigger while cocking it. In a fight with the Strongarm versus Maverick, Strongarm would probably win. The Maverick fires about 25 yards. The darts in the Maverick are also hard to pull out. Unlike the Strongarm, where the edges of the darts are exposed, the only way to get out the darts is to pull them out by the tip. The Strongarm and Maverick both have one tactical rail, but they vary in placement. The Maverick’s tactical rail is on the cocking mechanism. The one on the Strongarm is above the barrel. The tactical rail on the Strongarm is much more convenient. You can read a review of the Strongarm on The Paper Master. Overall, the looks of the Maverick are better than that of the Strongarm, but the Strongarm is better.
