What an improvement over the Praxis but if you already have it, then this gun is built exactly the same way but with the above noted improvements. Unless you really want to improve the Praxis, may I suggest the Nitron. It's a bit bigger and more substantial and overall, a different gun. But, if glow-in-the-dark and steady aiming is your passion, then donate your Praxis to charity and grab this gun. You'll certainly be glad you did! Highly recommend!
Far better than traditional nerfs, these little discs fly straight and also bounce everywhere. Great fun, the only problem is you'll need tons of spares as 1) you'll blast through 10 discs in as many seconds and 2) you'll lose them all down every crack in the furniture and under everything.
Although the description claims to shoot up to 60 feet I have yet to see anything like that distance from this blaster. Maybe with some backwind?
However despite these complaints the Lumitron is still lots of fun. I keep mine in the living room next to a few other NERF blasters and my girlfriend will occasionally pick it up and start pelting me with the shots. You can fire off all ten (or twelve - see below) shots pretty quickly with this!
The top of the blaster sports a tac-rail for fitting NERF scopes and the like, and there is a bit at the back that (I believe) will fit a stock. Being a vortex blaster rather than a dart blaster it does not support extended barrels.
The glow clip works well and the discs glow nicely for the duration of the shot, making them look a bit like tracers. However they fade fairly quickly so do not expect to be able to come back five minutes later and find your shots in the dark! The light inside the clip can also be used for signalling in the dark.
Although the Lumitron officially fits 10 discs, you can fit 12 in with some trickery. Firstly prime the gun (pump the grip as if you are about to fire) and that will put one disc "in the chamber" at which point you can eject the clip and load another disc. If you press down on a button on the top of the clip you can also push the loaded discs down a little bit further and fit an extra disc into the clip itself. There are also some videos online for modding the Lumitron (or Praxis which is almost the same) for extra power.
My nephew had wanted this for Christmas and it was way above our gift budget if we were to buy it in Denmark, but it was cheaper on Amazon compared to Danish top-Toystore prices.
Make sure you do not get a disc in the face at clse range, as they do hurt more than foam bullets.

It's a great gun but we had trouble getting the illumination workingPublished 11 months ago by Amazon Customer
Now I can get my 10 year old back ;-)
This is great - so fast firing, long range and quite accurate. Vortex is much better than the bullet ones!
Needs some working out of batteries / to power them but my son really happy - quite powerful for indoors.Published on 5 Jan. 2014 by Steve
