Not to be confused with the Dart Tag Sharp Shot.

The Sharpshooter is a Nerf blaster that was released in 1992 under the Original Nerf name.

It comes packaged with three Sharpshooter Darts.

Details

The Sharpshooter is a spring-powered dart blaster and is the only blaster to use Sharpshooter Darts. It features an area on the top of the blaster to rest one's hand which bears a strong resemblance to a cocking slide, although no blasters at the time of its release used cocking slides.

There are two integrated dart holders on top of the blaster. It was the first blaster to utilize the modern-day cocking ring, which was later used by blasters such as the Secret Shot, Defender T3, Tech Target Eliminator, Nite Finder, and Element EX-6. The integrated dart holders may also double as a built-in iron sight if one looks down the middle of the dart holders.

History

It was released in two different color schemes, although it is unknown when the second color scheme was released.

It was the first Nerf blaster to use any form of dart-based ammunition.[1] It also featured an unique dart type; the Sharpshooter Dart, a finned variation of what would become known as Mega Darts.

The Sharpshooter was discontinued in 1995[2]. It was succeeded that year by the Nerf Action series Sharpshooter II, which featured a better rate of fire and capacity.

Color schemes

The Sharpshooter has been released in the following color schemes:

  • Blue, black and red
  • Burgundy, blue and red

Reloading and firing

To reload the Sharpshooter, place one dart into the blaster's muzzle. Additional darts can be placed in the dart holders. Pull back the plunger rod to prime the blaster.

Pull the trigger to fire.
