The Proton is a small single-fire Nerf blaster that was released on September 10, 2011, under the Vortex series.

It comes packaged with three XLR discs.

Details

Its design is similar to the Nite Finder EX-3. The Proton has a single tactical rail on the front of the blaster. It has a disc eject button located on the back of the blaster, in case discs get jammed. It also has a sight on the top, which is aimed by placing the "bump" in the middle of the tactical rail between the points on the back of the blaster. If aimed correctly the user can even curve the disk to hit a moving target or one in cover.

Color schemes

The Proton has been released with the following color schemes:

Reloading and firing

To reload the Proton, pull back the disc tray until it is completely out of the blaster. Load a disc into the groove in the tray and push down on one of the slide return levers located on either side of the blaster.

To fire a disc, pull back the trigger.

Trivia

  • Looking from the top of the blaster, the disc is given a counter clockwise spin when fired.
  • The snap-load slide mechanism can be pulled back even when the blaster is primed, allowing for discs to be removed. Note however that the blaster will remain primed if the user does this.
  • The blaster is unable to fire if there is no disc inserted, even if it is primed. This feature can be removed with modification.
  • The slide on the back of the blaster requires far less effort to pull back than the bolts and slides of previous dart firing blasters, such as the Element EX-6, Longshot CS-6, and Recon CS-6. This is because it uses a torsion spring instead of a compression spring and there is an internal lever used to load it. This spring is actually stronger than the springs in dart blasters.
  • Its name might of been derived from a proton, a positively charged subatomic particle that is part of an atom.
  • This blaster can be speed-loaded by dropping a disc down the muzzle and quickly priming it. It can also hold and fire one extra disc by doing this.

    • They're switching to the white ones now, but you should still be able to find a green one easily. If it's not available at Walmart...
    • You aren't doing anything bad king Starscream, but this thread is over two months old. Sorry for having to tell you this.
