The Ramrod is a Nerf blaster that was released in 1993 under the Rip Rockets series.

It comes packaged with three Micro Darts.


The Ramrod features a fold-down handle, as well as three dart holders below the barrel. The blaster features no spring and is fired using a push-pull system.

It is one of the most simplistic Nerf blasters to date, consisting of only a barrel and a firing plunger. Its overall shape makes it somewhat look similar to a syringe. This is one of the few blasters where the strength of the user affects its performance. The handle doesn't lock into place when it is extended, so it moves around a bit if the user doesn't hold the priming handle.


It, along with the Detonator and Blast Hammer, were the first blasters to fire Micro Darts. It also was the first Nerf blaster that fired darts without using a spring.

Reloading and firing

To reload the Ramrod, place a single dart in the front barrel. Pull back the plunger rod to fully prime the blaster.

Push the plunger rod back into the blaster to fire a dart.
