If your not familiar with Black-Tactical, it’s a tactical gear site based in Singapore. They sell a good variety of high quality tactical gear, including accessories, scopes, sights, stocks, and even Nerf equipment. Which includes blaster kits, springs, epoxy, and more.
One of their latest releases are Metal Mags/Clips for our Nerf blasters. They call it the Aureus Alpha, or “The Golden One”. Check out their details and some of my thoughts on them below.
Version 2.0: Its the same high quality build, now mass produced cheaper!
After intensive R&D, Black-Tactical.com presents the Aureus Alpha, “The Golden One”. A Limited Edition Custom Made Metal Magazine Machined to fit Standard NERF Sockets for Professional NERFers.
Arseholes stepping on your plastic mags and breaking them
Standard 6 Round Mags too little ammo
Extended 18 Round Mags are too long and cannot fit any known pouches and cumbersome to handle
Metal Machined Body for Crush Resistance
Fits 12 Standard NERF Streamline or Ferdelance Darts
Fits All Standard STANAG M4/M16 or AK47 7.62 Magazine Pouches.
Orange/Gold Safety Colour to conform to most country’s import laws.
100% Anodized inside and out to protect against wear resistance and alu oxidization.
Metal Breach modified guns will benefit from more precise engineering with little or NO movement play when loaded in the magazine well. Allowing more efficient and precise round Feeding & Chambering and thus more accuracy.
Problem with the stupid Alpha trooper catch is that it is bigger than every other catch, so we favored machining it so that it will fit ALL OTHER magazine wells PERFECTLY with little or no movement play. HOWEVER a nail file on this stupid fat alpha catch solves the problem within seconds.
As part of the NERF community, Black-Tactical.com thank you for your continued support to create more Professional Accessories! For those who understand manufacturing would know that it cost a lot to create this. We are already pricing it as low as we can afford to already, so please buy more!
While most may question the need for a Nerf Metal Mag/Clip, some of the points & benefits I can understand. I’ve seen normal plastic Nerf mags get stepped on, broken, chipped, have dirt or sand get into them, and even had to use them in the rain myself. The Metal Mag’s 100% Anodized inside should help fight these things, and the Metal Breach and better feeding for blasters will help provide a bit of extra bonus performance. The yellow and gold look fit right into Nerf, and even look a bit cool in my eyes.
Having a high quality, durable item like this is exciting, even if it’s not for everyone out there. The thought and design put into these should help progress Nerf as a sport.
