It cannot be purchased in retail stores. The only way to obtain it is through second-hand websites and stores.
Not to be confused with the Zombie Strike SlingFire.
It comes packaged with four Micro Darts.
The Slingfire DX400 is a cord-action blaster, fired by pulling back and releasing a string. Pulling back auto-advances a four dart turret, and releasing fires a dart. Its method of firing was very similar to that of the 1998 RipChord.
It could be possible that the reason why the Slingfire DX400 is so rare is that the blaster was either unreleased, or had a very minor release. This can be backed up with an older archived website from 2005 claiming that the blaster was an "unknown 2003 release", indicating the blaster did not even get a mainstream release in its intended year, 2001.
A possible location of release is England, where one user in the NIC described the Slingfire DX400 having a "very limited release".
- Today, it is among the rarest Nerf blasters ever released and is extremely scarce. To date there are no boxed images that have surfaced on the internet.
- It is the only other blaster to have a "DX" number code, alongside the Blast Fire DX500.
- The Slingfire name is also used by a certain Zombie Strike series blaster.

Retrieved on 2014-07-17. “From what I've heard it had a very limited release in England, though I've personally never seen one beyond the few pics on the net. So, I can't say for certain if it was actually released or not, but I've have talked to people who said they had it, so I'm including it in the list.”
