It comes packaged with a detachable disc feeding tube and thirty Astro Discs.
The Cranking Cannon features an unique firing mechanism: a crank that primes the blaster and a firing trigger. While other blasters have featured hand cranks, such as the Nerf Razorbeast or the Cyclotron, they did not feature a firing trigger. The crank is located on the right side of the blaster; there is no crank located on the left of the blaster, making this blaster difficult for left-handed people to use.
It advertises a firing range of up to thirty feet.
The Cranking Cannon was re-released as an Air Zone blaster, retaining its original name.
The Cranking Cannon has been released with the following color schemes:
- Standard (orange, black, and yellow)
- Air Zone (white, black, yellow, and orange)
Reloading and firing
To reload the Cranking Cannon, load up to thirty Astro Discs into the included disc feeding tube. Attach the feeding tube to the top of the blaster. Wind the crank to prime the blaster.
Pull the firing trigger to fire a disc.
