    Longshot Blue vs Yellow.. Empty Longshot Blue vs Yellow..

    I've heard/read conflicting stories/reviews about weather there is actually a difference between the blue and yellow Longshot. I know the blue one was manufactured first. Then they changed the colour so as to mach the rest of the N-strike range (This seems like a reasonable claim). Also heard the blue ones were stronger (Not so sure on that one). Does anyone here have any definitive answers on the subject? Cheers D.

    I happen to own a blue longshot, while the spring is stronger, the blue longshot is only marginally more powerful, if at all.

    By stronger, I think they mean that the plastic is stronger, as in it can withstand more stress than that of the yellow edition. For example, the bolt sled has been known to last considerably longer without cracking under higher spring loads (Think Nitefinder spring addition).

    I have a Longshot Blue Spring and they feel like they're literally the same spring strength. Although, it seems that the plastics were much stronger back in the day lol. For example, the newer NFs in the new packaging have much weaker plunger rods. They will break with a gen 2 stock spring + tek 6 spring.

    Urban Taggers has a thread about this, and apparently like abowden says, marginally more powerful and UT saying that there isn't any difference at all. Stock that is.

    I've always wanted a blue longshot. Little bit off topic but I just felt like saying it.


    Personally i think they are the same besides the plastic and springs.
