Title: LS idea
Post by: Duck_slayer on August 26, 2006, 07:49:27 pm
okay my idea is for night fighting I've got a LS and had an idea as of late tape or mount on a small light or lazer but you will probaley need to mod it first unless you want to waste tape.The longshot is an awesome gun moded ranges almost as a crossbow (so I've heard ) and great Rof.

I mounted a maglite to the rail on my longshot. I just wrapped it in e-tape. It works great! ;D

Just put a laser pointer in the place where the bi-pod is.  The Ls will never rival the X-bow

A laser point for an aiming device...Brillant!

Yeah, and the X-bow rules.

I really dont know, a well modded LS will give any modded X-Bow a run for its money because of two reasons...
The X-Bow is hard to find and expensive, while the LS just hit the stores. And you have to heavily mod your X-Bow just so it will shoot with a clip, th LS comes with clips and the only real mods you have to do to get good range are a spring and o-ring replacement, and a barrel mod. That is my two cents on the subject...

Crossbows are easy to find, just not cheap.  I got mine for 40, not much more than an LS.  The prices went up, but too bad.  The only hard thing about giving the X-bow a clip is making the clip.  The X-bows rate of fire is just as good with a breech as a Ls with a replaced spring, not to mention that it will never jam.

True, all true. In the power and reliability department yes, the X-bow dominates. But for the average nerfer who really never gets a chance to get out to thrift stores and has no real time to be on ebay 24/7 the LS dominates in my oppinion for the simplicity of gettting a decent multishot clip-fed gun at a reasonable price that I can get at the store and not have to wait for shipping and have to hope it arrives in one peice.

You do have a point  there.  The X-bows are available only on ebay/thrift stores (blessed ones).  Whatever.  I personally think that the X-bow will always be the king.  It also feels better to use.

True... So the X-bow remains supreme overlord but the LS is a close second.

Yea thats what I hate about the Longshot.

That is its major downfall.

And thats why i'm going to get a Mag-strike!  :afro:


Title: Re: LS idea

(no hypehon(sp))  The magstrike owns the Ls and all other automatics.

I have both, and the Magstrike is much better, because it can't jam, and it has a cool way of using it where you hold down the trigger, then pump rapidly.It helps conserve ammo.

Hey. Well do you think someday the longshot will be sought after as The crossbow is now.... If so I might buy one and keep it nib.

In the future, sourskittles, try not to post in topics over a few weeks old. It'll get you in trouble on NerfHQ.

Although, this topic wasn't too old anyway...

In any case, as long as as Nerf doesn't rerelease the LS for 10 years or so, and as long as Nerf is still popular, I could see it increasing in value by a fair amount.

Of course, no one knows whether or not an LS will still be useful in a war. The crossbow remains popular due to the fact that it is easy to mod and is a springer that gets 100'+ (which no springer can really match, I think). Who knows; in 10 years there may not be many advances in commercial nerf guns. Then again, it may become such that springers regularly get Titan ranges, have magazines, almost never jam, etc. In this case, LSes will be obsolete and only collectors will value them.

So, in conclusion: If you have the money to buy an extra, why not?
