Homemade Nerf Gun: Parts





Introduction: Homemade Nerf Gun: Parts

Here are the parts you will need for the gun:

  • Two long blue Tinker Toy rods
  • Three rubber bands
  • One Nerf dart
  • One clothespin

The second picture is the finished product.

Step 1: Step 1: Make Barrel

Take two rubber bands and connect the two blue rods so that the slots on the ends of the rods make one straight line.

Step 2: Step 2: Attach Trigger

Take the clothespin, and open it, and slide it on to one of the rubber bands on the barrel as shown.

Step 3: Step 3: Add Launching System

Slip the last (and most powerful) rubber band into the slot opposite the trigger (clothespin).

Step 4: Step 4: Fire!

To load, open the clothespin, pull back the launching rubber band, and put the end of the launching rubber band into the clothespin. You must then put a Nerf dart onto the barrel as shown in the second picture. Push the legs of the clothespin together to fire. Do not fire at eyes or face.
