Types of locks Edit
- Trigger lock
This lock prevents one from pulling the trigger when the slide of a blaster is pulled back. This applies for all blasters without a slide return spring. Vortex blasters would also have this lock, which would prevent one from firing the blaster without having a disc or magazine inside. Flywheel-powered blasters have a similar lock, where the trigger may not be pulled unless the acceleration trigger is depressed.
- Slide lock
This type of lock disallows the slide from moving backwards and cause a double-feed once the blaster has been primed. This type of lock is only seen on blasters without a slide return spring.
- Clip lock
- Clip release lock
This lock prevents the user of a clip-fed or drum-fed blaster to remove the ammunition holder when the slide of the blaster is in the forward position. This only applies for blasters without a slide return spring. Vortex blasters, while magazine-fed, do not have this lock and the magazine or drum can be removed at any time.
- Motor lock
This lock causes a blaster with an acceleration trigger to drive induced currents to short into the batteries when a jam door is open, or when the clip is removed.
- Plunger catch
