Scoring
Firing rangeThis blaster has a firing range of up to thirty-five feet when in its "compact mode".[1][2] Range decreases when the barrel is extended.[3] This is due to the added dead space when the barrel is extended.[4]
ReliabilityThe Expand-a-Blast cannot jam, but ammunition is known to easily fall out of the barrel when it is extended.[5] The blaster is also more difficult to use when expanded, as the stock gets in the way of the priming bar. It is a very accurate blaster except when it is in the expanded state.[6]
Rate of fireThis blaster has a rate of fire of about one shot every two seconds.
CapacityThis blaster has space for six Mega Darts, including the barrel.
Final verdict and summary
Review FailThe Expand-a-Blast, while having some interesting new ideas for the time, is not a good blaster. It suffers from many reliability problems, mainly due to its expanding functions. When unexpanded, performance is much more reliable. Overall, it is still not a recommended blaster.
