The Nerf Elite Alpha Trooper CS-12 is a couple of years old now, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find it anywhere, in fact, I picked this one up from Argos as part of their 2 toys for £30 deal. It’s my first ever experience with a Nerf gun, as it was picked up from my son’s birthday, and well I have to say I’m quite impressed with what it has to offer.

Nerf guns aren’t just popular amongst children, they have a huge adult following too, with many adults taking to felids for what I imagine to be hours of fun shooting one another with foam bullets. It’s, for this reason, the Nerf gun in general interests me. It’s a toy, but it’s aimed at a wide range of different customers. As a first Nerf gun for a none ”Nerfer” I have to say it’s impressive.
The first thing to catch my eye was the packaging, yes that’s right, the packaging itself was enough to impress me. It’s detailed with images on the front and all of the sides. The back gives you a large detailed picture of the CS-12. The images around the box itself confirm the fact that Nerf guns are for both youngsters and elders, with a child modeling the CS-12 gun on the front and an adult modeling a range of Nerf accessories and a gun on the side. A good start, especially for people who think adults shouldn’t have fun.
Next up is the gun itself. It’s colored with the typical Nerf Elite color scheme consisting of blue, white, grey and orange. It’s rather sturdy in terms of its build quality too. The slam fire handle is well made and moves back and forth with ease, making loading the chamber a breeze.
In terms of comfort I have found it to be quite good for short periods of time, but when I hold it for too long, I often find it becomes quite uncomfortable to hold. This could be down to the weight of the gun or the fact I’m not used to holding something like this for long periods of time.
There are a few nifty little features located on this gun. At the bottom of the handle is a hole capable of storing an extra dart for a last-ditch attempt to claim victory. The slam handle has a bulge on the bottom to make it easier for smaller hands to pull back and forth on the handle. On the top is an access door, that can be used to make sure no darts are jammed in the chamber area (Magwell area if you want to be technical).
The included clip is able to hold up to 12 darts at a time (hence being called the alpha trooper CS-12). Loading the clip is quite simple as the darts simply stack on top of each other. It’s from here that the chamber in the gun loads the dart to be fired. Since it can hold up to 12 darts at once, you don’t have to stop and load the gun after each shot.
Loading the clip into the CS-12 is simple. You start by pulling the slam handle back until you hear a click and it locks into place. Next, you slide the loaded clip into the clip slot at the bottom and once this has locked into place, you pull the slam handle back to the front of the barrel. Now pull the trigger to fire a dart. To fire more simply repeat the pull back and forth of the slam handle between each shot. If you want to slam fire the darts, simply keep hold of the trigger as you pump the slam handle.
The range on offer with the CS-12 is up to 20 meters, which is fairly decent. Every time I use the CS-12, I have consistent results in terms of distance traveled by the dart. I also find the shooting to be very accurate. I can aim at a target and the dart will hit it with ease. I know if I was a Nerf playing adult, I would certainly want my tool to be as accurate as possible.
I have to say that my first experience with a Nerf gun has actually been a good one. The CS-12 is a good, well-made toy, that can be enjoyed by both adults and children alike. It’s gorgeous to look at and just as much fun to play with. My only gripe with it is that I just can’t hold it for too long without feeling uncomfortable, but apart from that, I have to say I am very impressed, oh and I forgot to mention, my son loves it too.
