Exclusive! NEW 2014 Tek Recon Predator

Exclusive! NEW 2014 Tek Recon Predator

Before I get in to the Press Release from Tek Recon, I HAVE to give my 0.02pence!

I am TOTALLY blown away by this new design, and it's ALL SINGING TACTICOOLNESS!!!

What do we know:
  • 100ft ranges
  • 100 NRG capacity
  • 6 new accessories
  • 3 viable sling-points
  • Side rails
  • Price: tbc



WHERE DO I BEGIN?? Okokok, the shell. WHAT THE HECK!! I have to say, I can't remember the last time I was this fired up to see an awesome looking shell. It just looks so darn awesome. It looks so much of a beast, I can already picture myself hunting down opponents in my iron sights (pun intended).

Speaking of iron sights - is that a red sight or scope?


The blaster looks to be rocking a removable tac-grip?

Inspired by many fan pics - a tac-light? Definitely fan inspired!




The mag cartridge seems to have had a work over? It now packs 100 NRG rounds. It definitely looks awesome.

We heard about the new fibre-glass smartphone mount recently from the Germany Toy Fair

In true fashion, we see an awesome stock on this beast of a blaster. Note the sling hook on the stock. Looking good :)

Speaking about 100ft range performance, it's likely to be with the new type of NRG rounds we saw from the German Toy Fair:

Unfortunately, as easy as it is to get excited, until the new rounds are fan-tested and internals investigated for range performance, I will hold judgement right now even tho it looks so darn awesome. The real proof will be in testing out these new Longshot and Velocity rounds.

  8. I agree with Scorpio that the tek recon predator should be full auto not slam fire.
