The Stockade is a semi-automatic Nerf blaster that was released on August 1, 2012[1] under the N-Strike Elite series. It requires three "AA" batteries to operate.

It comes packaged with a detachable shoulder stock, ten Elite Darts, and instructions.

It is a Toys "R" Us exclusive in Canada.[citation needed]

The Stockade was released in the US in fall of 2013 as a Walmart exclusive, along with the Elite Spectre REV-5.  [2]

Details

It is a semi-automatic flywheel blaster with a ten dart rotating built-in drum. The detachable stock can hold an additional ten Elite Darts, however the blaster does not come packaged with any darts for the stock. The Stockade has one tactical rail, which is located on top of the blaster.

The power switch is located on the left side of the blaster, under the battery compartment. [3] The blaster also features a jam door which allows for quick and easy access if a dart jam occurs. The blaster automatically turns off if the jam door is opened.

The Stockade has a smaller space between the flywheels than its predecessor, which generates more friction on the darts and increases range.

History

The Stockade is a successor to the N-Strike Barricade RV-10. The blaster was first revealed on a Toys "R" Us listing in July, 2012.[4] For unknown reasons, the North American release date was pushed back until fall of 2013.

Color schemes

The Stockade has been released in the following color schemes:

Reloading and firing

To reload the Stockade, first load up to ten darts in the blaster's turret. Turn the blaster on and pull the trigger to fire.

If possible, turn on the blaster's flywheels only when firing or preparing to fire. This will preserve battery power and playing time.

This blaster will not accept Micro Darts due to their dart heads being too big to fit into the flywheels.

Trivia

  • Darts can be loaded in backwards; however, this causes a huge range decrease and also causes the dart to tumble.
  • Despite the box showing the Stockade with digital camo, the Stockade does not feature it.
  • The instruction manual shows the Stockade using Whistler Darts even though it comes with Elite Darts.
  • This is the first revolver to come packaged with darts that are clip system compatible.
  • It is the only N-Strike Elite blaster to be released in other countries outside the United States first.
  • The Stockade and Stryfe are often compared as they are believed to be successors to the Barricade, the Stockade being an improvement and the Stryfe being based on a clip-fed variation to the Barricade.
  • Spectre shoulder stock can be easily pulled on and off of this blaster without pulling the switch.
