We've seen it thousands of times on the Nerf Nation Facebook Page. "What's better? Longs. trike or Longshot?". We've seen the answer thousands of times too. "Longshot is better." Recently, I've been working with a 1st Generation Longshot that performs great with some basic modifications to it. With the Orange Mod Works Massacre series finally out, I decided to take this age-old question out for a spin with some modifications.
The Longshot's modifications in this video are basic. Stock Block, AR removed, dead space filled, and it's running a Big Bad Bow spring. It's strong enough to hit 75 feet flat on average and still can use a single-hand prime for the Bolt Action. The Longstrike has a Massacre Kit in it from OMW with a 6kg spring. Both blasters are firing stock streamline darts. This face-off is pretty even in terms of range, but range isn't everything in my books. Check the video below to see how it went down.
