I was at Walmart today when I saw something new, apparently Nerf is now offering the Longshot with a bonus sight attachment called the 'Night Finder EX-3 Sight'. I'm not sure why they couldn't have come up with a more original name for this thing, but it's pretty neat nonetheless. It takes 2 AA batteries and, like the Nite Finder it shares a name with, it shines a light beam for "precision blasting -even in the dark!"

They only cost $28.95, so if you've been waiting on picking up a Longshot now might be the time as I'm sure like the Dart tag / Firestrike sets last year these won't be around for very long.

Here are a few quick pics I took of the box and the sight on a couple of different N-Strike blasters:

Box Front
Box Back
On the Nite Finder
On the Maverick
Just the Sight

Edit: Sorry about the pics, larger ones can be seen here - http://photobucket.c...25/SuperOrange/

Cool, I'm assuming you got it since you have pictures that are clearly ones you've taken, so how does it work?

That is pretty sweet, I might have to pick that up so I can see if I can do the flashlight mod to that instead of my nightfinder, then stick it on the longshot. Who said owning two of the same gun just for a simple sight was a bad thing :angry: ...


I'll post a writeup if it works.

It snaps right on to the rails that are on top of all the N-Strike guns and there's a little switch on the back of the sight you use to turn the light beam on and off.

I know it's a dumb question since nerfing takes place outside in the daytime, but how is the visibility factor with it?

No, it's a copy (I think, as I haven't seen it) of the NF "sight" that's just a red flashlight for aiming. It's too weak to see outside during the day, and I never use it on my NF.

For maximum efficiency?


1. Pump up. Count how many pumps.

2. Keep going until you hear a loud "bang".

3. Subtract one pump from the total. Rebuild your air bladder.


There you go.

By the way my wal marts have magstrikes for 32 dollars, but it includes a bonus "firestrike" or as we would call a NF.

If anyone is willing to sell one of these Bonus Nightfinder lasers attachments then pm me. Here in Canada we never see bonus stuff. I am still yet to see a dart tag set that comes with two firestrikes.

I don't get my kicks out of you,
I don't feel the way I used to do.
I know its bad,
After what we had,
But I’m just not the angel you knew.

It looks cool but also is kind of gimmicky....

But i think is kindof neat that nerf is selling accessories that work with a whole line of guns.

I had it on top of my Nite Finder last night and found the Sight's beam to be a lot stronger than the Nite Finder's. Also, the dot the Sight produced was a lot clearer on the wall, it was an actual dot whereas the Nite Finder kind of made a large blob. Indoors during the day I can still see the Sight's dot three rooms away, but outside it's really next to useless in the daylight.

It's a sight, not a scope, so you don't look through anything, it simply shines a red dot on the wall like a Night Finder.

There were a bunch of the new Longshots at my local Wal-mart, but the Fireflies, Mavericks, SSPBs, and anything with a crossfire in it were all gone. Have those been disappearing for others too, or does my Wal-Mart just suck at life?

Now I have to buy another long shot. Anyways I put the regular "scope" on my maverick Snake Plisken style.

Also has anyone considered putting one of those on a magstrike, because it also has a rail in top.

Why the hell hasn't this package shown up anywhere over here in Rochester?! I am by no means willing to pay $35+ on ebay if it's supposed to be available at retailers for $30.[size=3]
