Lets start with the packaging. Why? becuase there is alot of stolen graphics and bad engrish.
Oddly enough, there are 2 cardboard targets in the packet but only one stand. this stems from the SLD Dart Blaster (disk shot clone) which has 2 cardbord targets and stands.
Now for the darts.
The orange head SDL darts are longer than the Nerf ones. The foam is also lighter.
The heads on the SDL darts are much lighter and dont have the rubber peg that runs into the hole like the Nerf ones. The heads of the SDL darts come off very easy and are pathetic at sticking onto things.
Now for the guns them selves.
They look almost exactly the same and feel exactly the same to use. The Laser finder is much harder to cock than the Nite finder and is much louder, due to it having a better spring. The paintjob on the laser finder is horrible. its scratched, the details are over painted the logo is peeling off and the paint feels a little strange. the battery doors are diffrent too. the Nitefinder has it battery door screwed on, where as the Laser finder has a hatch.
There is a reason why its called the Laser finder
on the right you will see that the Laser finder has an actual laser pointer unlike Nerfs Red LED and lens. Keeping the Laser finder out of the hands of goobers is a must.
And what you've been waiting for. Range tests. Tests where done inside with both guns fired flat at arms length. Aming the 2 guns consistantly is quite easy with the red dots. just point at the same spot on the wall.
As you can see, the laser finder has more power. but did have some trouble with consistancy. It could just have been down to user error though.
Internals of the Laser finder.
Basicaly the same as the Nitefinder. The screws strip very easy. I may have just got a bad one. I have another SDL gun and had no problem with the screws. The trigger spring and screw are all rusted. The air restrictor, like the newest Nitefinders are glued on.
The top one is a Nitefinder one and bottom is the Laser finder one. The Laser Finder has a longer and much stronger spring.
EDIT: Ignore the double O ring on the Nite finder Plunger rod. It was from a modified Nitefinder I had laying around.
