Successor to the Nerf Mad Hornet and the predecessor to the Nerf Hornet AS-6 ...
The Nerf Blast Fire DX500!
The Nerf Blast Fire was launched back in 2001 and its now no longer in production. This classic blaster is still a favorite amongst Nerf enthusiasts for its usability and versatile semi-auto/blast fire modes.
The Blast Fire has a similar firing system as the Nerf Hornet, the blaster is primed by filling its air tank chambers via an on-board pump handle. Its top-sliding hatch is required to be primed before it is pumped to set the semi-auto and blast fire system. It takes just 5-6 pumps to fully prime the blaster.
This is a true semi-auto blaster. Once it is primed, all you need to do is to just keep pulling the trigger and it will fire the foam darts in sequence, no need to re-prime the blaster.
It also has a "blast fire" button on its top. When activated, it'll fire off all the foam darts in one barrage, useful when you need to quickly blast an area with foam darts!
The Blast Fire has an average firing range of 30+ ft and it is compatible with all Nerf foam dart types.
In terms of form factor, it is relatively light and compact, making it quite an effective sidearm for close quarter skirmishes!
