Cheaper Nerf Airsoft/knex Gun Mod/hack





Introduction: Cheaper Nerf Airsoft/knex Gun Mod/hack

All the tools you need from my last instructable are used again here.

So, I wanted to make a more budget oriented gun, one perhaps a bit better.
So the dollar store was the first stop, there I got a pen, and a really lame orange dart shooter.
Total cost $2 (actualy I had these things already so it was free for me)

Step 1: Disassemble and Break

So, the whole gun is held in place with some glue, take a knife and slide it all around the crack, and seperate the halfs.

Ok, now I worked on a way to attach the pen to the existing barrel, I tried drilling it out but found that the best way was to just break the barrel off.

Step 2: Glue the New Barrel On

Take your pen or marker and extract the barrel....
Glue it on and keep it tight, no air holes.

Step 3: Close It Up and Add a Handle

Put everything back in the gun, and use the hot glue to put the halves back together, use a knife to chop off all the extra glue once it dries.

During testing I found that the tiny orange plunger was VERY hard to grab and cock.
So I drilled two small holes and placed a wire loop in it. Now I have a nice big handle.

    does it shoot hard?

    Thanks. And no, mine is the exact same gun.

    Oh, mine kinda stuck, so part of one half is on the other half. Just give it a nice big yank, nothing a little glue can't fix later.

    Having trouble opening this gun. Any tips?

    Take a knife, and plunge it into the crack. Pry it open, it won't want to come apart but it does. I have not seen one but you might want to check under any stickers if there are any screws. Mine was glue only, you might have a different gun.

    Im just having trouble with the under part.
