If you want to add any jargon, or have any suggestions to make it better, feel free to post it below and I, or a mod, will edit it in.

Either scroll down to the jargon you're after or use your browser's search tool (usually Ctrl+F).

The BritNerf Jargon Buster:

    AAbow
    An Actual Bow. A homemade blaster originally designed by "Kane"

    Accustrike (Dart)
    A revised dart design from Hasbro which advertises superior precision/perceived accuracy to the standard Elite dart owing to the increased mass of the dart tip shifting the centre of mass further forward although this increase in mass also tends to result in reduced muzzle velocity. This has the side effect of tending to reducing Currently more expensive than Elite darts, it is believed that they are roughly comparable to the new "wafflehead" designs in performance.

    Air Cylinder (commonly referred to as a Plunger Tube)
    The tube which houses the piston and holds the pressure required to fire the dart.

    Air Restrictor (AR)
    A device which limits the airflow through a blaster if a dart is not fully loaded into the barrel. In piston blasters it acts as a buffer to prevent damage to the internals. Removing it will result in a slight increase in muzzle velocity but will increase the risk of damage to internal components.

    Air Zone
    A brand of foam dart blaster.

    AT
    Alpha Trooper CS-18. Not to be confused with the EAT (Elite Alpha Trooper CS-12) or any of the Airtech blasters.

    AT2K
    Airtech 2000.

    AT3K
    Airtech 3000.

    AT4K
    Airtech 4000.

    Barrel
    The part of the blaster through which the dart travels. In non-CS blasters, and homemade blasters, the barrel usually seals against the dart to allow pressure to build up behind it. CS blasters (and some other blasters) feature a faux barrel (fixed or detachable) which does not seal against the dart. Generally, air-powered homemade blasters feature a barrel which does not seal as tightly against the dart as the barrel in springers as they don't rely on a piston to build pressure for firing.

    BB
    Brass Breech. Not to be confused with BBB/B3 (Big Bad Bow), or BBBB/B4 (BuzzBee Blast Bazooka).

    BBB/3B
    Big Bad Bow. Not to be confused with the BBBB/B4 (BuzzBee Blast Bazooka), or BB (Brass Breech).

    BBBB/4B
    BuzzBee Blast Bazooka. Not to be confused with the BBB/B3 (Big Bad Bow), or BB (Brass Breech).

    Bolt
    The component of the CS blaster breech that moves forward and chambers darts from the magazine. In most cases it also pushes the piston back into it's primed position (the usual exception being electrically operated spring blasters like the Stampede or Vulcan/Havok Fire).

    Boltsled
    The main internal sliding assembly of CS blasters, which houses the breech assembly and pushes the piston into it's primed position.

    Breech
    An opening (other than the end of the barrel) into which darts are loaded for firing. In most stock CS blasters, the breech assembly essentially serves the same function as the barrel on non-CS blasters.

    Buzz Bee Toys (BBT)
    A brand of foam dart blaster.

    Catch Plate
    A flat trigger catch, commonly found in CS blasters.

    Catch Spring
    The spring which holds the trigger catch in position to allow it to catch the piston rod/head and prevent the blaster from firing accidentally.

    Chips
    1. Tasty deep fried potato based snacks.
    2. Compoooter bits to make shiny Nerf blaster go whoosh!

    Clip
    A device used to hold together darts prior to loading a blaster/magazine. Magazines are often (although technically incorrectly) also referred to as "clips". Some would also class the devices used in blasters like the N-Strike Magstrike AS-10, aswell as similar devices found in a few BBT and BoomCo blasters, as "clips" although arguably these are more akin to the "slides" or "blocks" from self-repeating harmonica rifles/pistols since the darts are neither stripped into a magazine nor chambered into a breech.
 
    CS
    "Clip" System. A type of blaster which stores darts in quick-change magazines. If "CS" is followed by a number (e.g. CS-18) the total number of darts the provided magazine(s) can hold and the number of darts provided in the standard package.

    Dart Tooth/Dart Gate/Dart Door
    A component in CS blasters which pushes the dart into the breech assembly as the boltsled moves forward, rather than into the faux barrel.

    Dart Peg/Dart Post
    The peg found inside the barrel/breech assembly of a blaster. It is usually a part of the AR system and also prevents users from loading a blaster with anything other than Nerf darts.

    Direct Piston/Direct Plunger (DP)
    The more conventional system wherein the piston fits and moves inside the air cylinder. These systems are usually more powerful than reverse piston systems due to a reduced volume of dead-space and increased efficiency over RP systems. Most N-Strike Elite blasters feature DPs.

    EAT
    Elite Alpha Trooper CS-12. Not to be confused with the AT (Alpha Trooper CS-18).

    EBF
    "Electric Belt Fed" blaster. A type of blaster which stores darts in a belt system. If "EBF" is followed by a number (e.g. EBF-50) the total number of darts the provided belt(s) can hold and the number of darts provided in the standard package.
   
    ECS
    "Electric Clip System" blaster. A type of blaster which stores darts in quick-change magazines. The designation used to only refer to electrically primed piston (AEG) blasters like the Stampede but has since been applied to standard flywheel blasters such as the CAM ECS. If "ECS" is followed by a number (e.g. ECS-50) the total number of darts the provided magazine(s) can hold and the number of darts provided in the standard package.

    Elite (Dart)
    Standard Nerf Elite dart. Doesn't perform as well as cheaper alternatives in terms of either precision or velocity.
   
    Elite Universal Suction Dart
    An alternative dart design from Hasbro designed to stick to smooth surfaces whilst being able to be fired from all current .50cal dart blasters appears to offer greater precision/perceived accuracy over the standard Elite dart however also tends to result in reduced muzzle velocity

    EX
    External piston rod prime. A type of front-loaded blaster which is primed via an external extension of the piston rod (normally out of the back of the blaster). Darts are loaded individually into each barrel. If "EX" is followed by a number (e.g. EX-3) the number represents the number of darts included with the blaster in the standard package.

    FPS
    Feet Per Second. An imperial measure of velocity normally associated, at least within Nerf, as the muzzle velocity of a blaster measured by firing darts over a chronograph.

    FS
    Elite Firestrike. Successor to the NF (nitefinder), a small and powerful single-shot pistol with a direct piston and a red LED light.

    FVJ (Dart)
    "Full-Vinyl Jacket". A third party dart whose name is derived (not officially) from the non-compliant solid tip. Whilst cheaper than both Elites and Koosh, and featuring a favourable weight distribution, their overall velocity (and hence range) tends to be lower due to their overall increased mass. They may be disallowed at certain games/events as a result of their solid tip.

    Hasbro
    The parent company of the Nerf brand.

    HvZ
    Humans vs Zombies. A Nerf based variant of the game of tag, developed by Goucher College students in America in 2005. The aim for the humans is to "survive" the game period, whilst the zombies attempt to tag all of the humans. Humans can temporarily "stun" zombies with blasters and/or rolled-up socks whereas, if they are tagged by a zombie, humans "die" and become zombies. HvZ is predominately played on university campuses however it can be played at any location (indoors or outdoors) with  sufficient space.

    ICR/LiCo/Trustfire/Ultrafire
    The standard Li-ion chemistry battery. Most LiCo cells are not capable of the discharge rates required in even stock motor applications. If you must use a 14500 (AA) size drop-in solution use IMRs instead.

    IMR/LiMn
    A "safe chemistry" Li-ion battery. 14500 (AA) sized IMR cells are a superior drop-in upgrade to LiCo cells such as Trustfires due to their greater discharge rates which allow them to supply enough current to the stock motors in semi-auto blasters. It is not recommended to use 14500 size IMRs in full auto blasters or blasters with replacement motors as they cannot supply the current required for that application. Larger IMR sizes are available but often cost significantly more than more suitable options such as NiMH of LiPo packs.

    Integration
    A secondary blaster put inside or attached to the shell of a primary to create a dual mode blaster with an alternative mode of fire. See Also: Masterkey

    IX
    Internal piston rod prime. A type of front-loaded blaster which is primed via an external mechanism (usually a slide) which pulls the internal piston back (the piston/piston rod can extend out of the back of the blaster when primed). If "IX" is followed by a number (e.g. IX-3) the number represents the number of darts included with the blaster in the standard package.

    Jam Door
    An access hatch featured on most blasters (especially springers) to allow easy access to the breech in the event of a jammed dart/mechanism.

    KNEX
    The brand of build-your-own blasters derived from the KNEX construction sets. For the darts see "Wafflehead (Dart)"

    Koosh (Dart)
    A third party dart whose name is derived (not officially) from the similarity that the bristles on the tip of the darts share with Koosh balls. Currently (Gen 3 Koosh) are widely regarded as the best general purpose "superstock" dart outperforming the likes of Elite darts in precision/perceived accuracy whilst matching overall velocity. They also happen to be cheaper than Elite darts and outperform cheaper darts such as the FVJ (in velocity) and Voberry (in velocity and precision).

    Lanard
    A brand of foam dart blaster.

    LBB
    Lanard Blast Bazooka. Not to be confused with the BBBB/4B (BuzzBee Big Blast).

    LRT
    Latex Rubber Tubing. The basic material used in Nerf and Super Soaker (CPS or "Constant Pressure System" derivatives) elastic pressure chamber bladders. LRT provides almost constant pressure to the air/water inside it as it expands allowing for your last shot to be almost as powerful as the first.

    LS
    Longshot CS-6. Not to be confused with the LSK (Longstrike CS-6).

    LSFG
    Longshot Front Gun. The combined blaster and barrel attachment that comes with the Longshot CS-6.

    LSG
    Lanard Shotgun. Officially the "Triple Shot" (fires three darts at once, four times, when stock) but commonly referred to as the "Quad Shot" (fires one dart, four times) or "Octoshot" (fires one dart, eight times) when modified .

    LSK/LK
    Longstrike CS-6. Not to be confused with the LS (Longshot CS-6).

    Mag/Magazine
    A device used to feed darts into a blaster's firing mechanism. Commonly, although technically incorrectly, referred to as a "clip".
   
    Main Spring
    The main spring provides the force to move the piston forward to fire the dart.

    Masterkey (MK)
    A secondary, usually rapid/slam fire, blaster (e.g. Strongarm or Rough Cut), attached to the underside of another blaster's barrel (usually a detachable barrel extension) to create a dual mode blaster with an alternative mode of fire. A form of integration. Named after the KAC Masterkey underslung door-breeching shotgun.

    Modded (Blaster)
    A modified blaster.

    Modification/Mod
    A custimisation of a blaster which could be cosmetic, for improved performance, or to increase usability.

    Mod (other than modification)
    One of the forum or board moderators.

    Nerf
    The brand of blasters made by Hasbro.

    NF
    Nitefinder. A small and powerful single-shot pistol with a direct piston and a red LED light.

    NH
    NerfHaven, another Nerf forum. Currently the largest, but arguably one of the less welcoming forums.

    NIC
    Nerf Internet Community. Refers to the community as a whole as well as a subset of gametypes where homemade blaster/darts with muzzle velocities up to/over 300fps are allowed.

    OP
    Original post/poster. The first post in a topic, or the user who originally posted the topic.

    PAC
    Pump Action Crossbow. A homemade blaster originally designed by "Ryan" and "Kane".

    PAS
    Pump-Action Shotgun.

    Piston (commonly referred to as a Plunger)
    The main moving part in all springers. When the trigger is pulled, this component travels forward rapidly (under the force of the main spring) within or around the air cylinder (depending on whether the system is a direct or reverse piston), increasing the pressure behind the dart to make it fire out of the barrel.

    Piston Seal
    The seal between the piston and air cylinder (usually an o-ring) which prevents air from escaping.

    Plunger Tube (PT)
    A term commonly used to describe the air cylinder in springers.

    Pressure Chamber (PC)
    The air storage tank in air-powered blasters. Air is pumped into the PC to pressurise it to fire the dart.

    Pressure Relief Valve (PRV)
    A safety feature in air-powered blasters. This component prevents the PC from becoming over-pressurised which could cause it to rupture. Commonly referred to as an "OPRV" (Over Pressure Relief Valve) although adding the "O" is technically unnecessary.

    PTC Fuse/Thermistor
    A "Positive Temperature Coefficient" fuse that trips when heated up by a certain amount of current flowing through it. One or more are commonly found in most electric blasters and are used to protect the blaster's circuit. Removal is recommended to ensure reliable operation with higher voltage power sources (higher voltage battery = greater current demand by motors).

    PumpSnap
    A Pump Action "Snap", First designed by "Stark", and revised by "NerfoMania".

    Rainbow
    A form of homemade blaster, based on the Rainbow Catch trigger mechanism. "Rainbow" is usually used as a prefix, or suffix, in the name of said homemade blaster (e.g. RainbowPump).

    Rainbow Catch
    A catch mechanism designed by members of the "Rainbow Clan". Usually made from polycarbonate.

    RainbowPump
    A Pump Action "Rainbow". Originally designed by "Ryan"

    Ram Rod
    A stiff rod used to clear jammed darts from a barrel, or to load darts down a long barrel if the blaster doesn't have a dedicated breech.

    RC
    Elite Rough Cut 2x4.

    REV
    Revolver. A type of blaster which stores darts in an integral rotating cylinder made up of many individual barrels. If "REV" is followed by a number (e.g. REV-6) the number represents the number of darts that fit in the cylinder and the number included with the blaster in the standard package.

    Reverse Piston/Reverse Plunger (RP)
    A piston-cylinder system wherein the piston fits around the cylinder rather than fitting inside. These systems are usually less powerful than direct piston systems due to an increased volume of deadspace and reduced efficiency. Most N-strike blasters feature RPs.

    RS
    Elite Rapidstrike CS-18.

    SA
    Elite Strongarm.

    SAMBO/Superstock
    Stock Ammo Modified Blasters Only/OK. A subset of gametypes (including the likes of traditional HvZ) where modified blasters are allowed but only "stock" style (i.e. full-length soft tip) darts are permitted.

    Salvo
    Lanard Big Salvo.

    Snap
    A form of homemade blaster, based on the Snap Catch trigger mechanism. "Snap" is usually used as a prefix, or suffix, in the name of said homemade blaster (e.g. PumpSnap).

    Snap Catch
    A simple homemade trigger catch mechanism, usually made from a torsion spring clothes peg. Originally designed by "Carbon"

    Snapbow
    A homemade blaster made from PVC and using the Snap Catch trigger. The popular MK V version is a revised design by "Rork".

    Stefan
    A shortened dart (usually homemade) with better weight distribution, used with modified blaster and home-made blasters, to improve consistency in range and accuracy.

    Spacer
    Used with modified blasters like the AT3K or Lanard Triple shot, to support, and equally space, the extended barrels. They can be as simple as a piece of plastic with holes cut in to it to accommodate the barrels. Spacers fit in between all the barrels to support them but aren't always visible from outside.

    Springer
    A spring-based Nerf blaster.

    Shoulder Stock
    The part of a blaster which is rested against your shoulder. Commonly a detachable accessory esp. on Nerf blasters.

    Stock (Blaster)
    An unmodified blaster.

    Trigger
    The lever/button which fires a primed blaster. Can be integrated into the trigger catch.

    Trigger Catch/Catch Plate
    The component which holds the piston back against the force of the main spring.

    Tornadobow (TBow)
    A Koosh Tornado (not be be confused with "Koosh" darts) with homemade internals.

    UMB
    Ultimate Missile Blast. Not to be confused with the URB (Ultimate Rapid Blast) or the USB (Ultimate Snipe Blast).

    URB
    Ultimate Rapid Blast. Not to be confused with the UMB (Ultimate Missile Blast) or the USB (Ultimate Snipe Blast).

    USB
    Ultimate Snipe Blast. Not to be confused with the UMB (Ultimate Missile Blast) or the URB (Ultimate Rapid Blast).

    USC (Dart)
    Universal Suction Clone. A third party variant of the Elite Universal Suction Dart.

    Voberry (Dart)
    A third party dart whose name is derived (not officially) from the name of the original Amazon vendor. Whilst cheaper than both Elites and Koosh, they feature a long Streamline-esque tip and stem which both increases the mass and moves the centre of mass away from the front resulting in reduced velocities and precision/perceived accuracy. Still a valid option if competition is not the user's main focus due to their low cost.

    Wafflehead (Dart)
    A dart (available first-party from KNEX aswell as inexpensive third party variants from the likes of "EKIND", "Little Valentine" and "Mengun") whose tip resembles a honeycomb/waffle pattern. Three variants are currently available; "stacked" where the "waffles" are a straight pyramid stack with the join line in one spot on the tip, "offset" where the "waffles" are like bricks in a wall with the joining material offset between layers and "X Tip" where the tip is more hollow than the other two and has a clear X shape. So far Stacked and X Tip appear better by varying degrees owing to their better weight distribution over Elite (and even Koosh) as a result of their higher mass tips. Tend to be cheaper than Koosh, and available on eBay and Amazon, but the increased mass also tends to result in reduced muzzle velocity.

    XBow
    Nerf (Kenner) Crossbow. Not to be confused with the +Bow.

    +Bow
    A homemade alternative to a Crossbow made from polycarbonate. Originally designed by "Captain Slug". Not to be confused with the XBow (Crossbow).

Many spacers are not circular. They fit in between all the barrels to support them and aren't visible from the outside.

I think the alphabetical list works atm as ther isnt an ungodly amount of terms to list and if you were using this you may not necessarily know which catergory to look under, maybe if it becomes unmanagable as a whole list it changing the format could be clearer.
Also YAY FOR SUGGESTIONS BEING IMPLEMENTED, one of the reasons I like this forum is the way the mods and admins interact with everyone else Very Happy

Thanks for doing this SSGT. I've got a couple of changes to suggest.

   Trigger Catch (also known as Catch Plate)

   The component which holds the plunger while the main spring is compressed.

   REV

   Revolver. A type of blaster which stores darts in an integral rotating turret made up of many individual barrels. If 'REV' is followed by a number (e.g. REV-6) the number represents the number of darts which will fit in a stock cylinder.

   CS

   'Clip' System loading. A type of blaster which stores darts in quick-change magazines. If 'CS' is followed by a number (e.g. CS-18) the number represents the capacity of darts in a stock magazine provided with the blaster.

You might also consider defining ECS 'Extended Clip System' and EBF 'Electronic Belt Feed', too. Regarding the changes I made to REV and CS, I'm not being a total anus because there are 'double your darts' packs and other such lovelies out there that would mess with the definition as it stands where extra darts are included. Strictly speaking, the CS-n represents the magazine capacity.

Doesn't ECS stand for 'Electronic Clip System'?

Also, what about blasters?

LS - Long Shot,
LSK - Longstrike,
BBB/3B - Big Bad Bow,
BBBB/4B - Buzzbee Big Blast,
UMB - Ultimate Missile Blast

If we put them into another category 'Retailers and Vendors' we could have PAK, OMW, Hasbro, BSUK, RM and all the rest separate so as not to imply endorsement.

I always thought that the 4B was for Buzz Bee Big Blast, the Blast Bazooka was Lanard's take on the blaster. (a quick google thru NHaven garnered me that info)

4B Is indeed Buzz Bee Big Blast, Not Blast Bazooka.
LBB is the Lanard Blast Bazooka.

Updated all, except for Retailers/Vendors. If we want a separate section for them, best to decide now, rather than dump them in and re-arrange them.

A separate section for them may prevent the appearance of implicit endorsement, but may make it harder for new users to find them (depending on context, they might not know that OMW is a company).

Also, if we did separate them, it may be argued we might as well separate homemade and general jargon?

It's up to you guys really.  Razz

Admins, could we get the spoiler code for PHPBB activated so we can collapse the OP and only expand entries we want to see rather than having the current long list?

Also, is there a way to get internal hyperlinks within posts without activating HTML? Just thinking we could sort into sections and have a contents list at the top to allow you to jump from point to point within the list.

It is already, but when I tried it earlier, it didn't make much difference to the overall length of the list (in fact it made it longer due to the huge gap above and below the spoiler box).
Spoiler:

Very Happy


Linking internally to anchor points requires a custom BBCode (not supported in phpbb2. IIRC that came in with phpbb3).  Sad
There are mods around that can do it with phpbb2.
