The Iron Raptor is a single-fire Nerf blaster that was released in 1995 under the Max Force series.

It comes packaged with three Micro Darts.


It is small enough to be stored into a pocket. It had an unique design where priming the blaster can cause two arms to pop out (if they are folded up above the barrel when partially primed). This design is purely for aesthetic purposes however. It resembles a bird of prey, as its name would suggest.

Interestingly, the trigger mechanism is more or less a button on the top of the blaster. Ammunition holders capable of holding up to one dart are found on each arm.

Reloading and firing

To reload the Iron Raptor, insert one dart into the front barrel of the blaster. Manually push the barrel down into the blaster itself until it cannot be pushed inwards any further. Press the button on the top of the blaster to launch the barrel back outwards to its initial position.[3]

Pull the button backwards to fire a dart.
