Step 1: Gathering the materials
Here is a list of the materials you will need to create your homeade Airsoft gun.List
1. Nerf Gun*
2. One pen**
3. Duct tape
4. Pair of pliers
5. Some Airsoft bullets
- It is usually best to use a Nerf gun that has a single barrel to put Nerf bullets in.
** If you want a longer barrel, you will need more than one pen. Just use some duct tape to attach two together. Just keep in mind, the longer the barrel, usually the more accurate. But, the more barrels you add the more of a chance the bullet will shoot off course because of imperfect taping.
Step 2: Making the barrel
To make the barrel, take the pliers and pull off the top and the back of the pen. Make sure you get a pen that the bottom and top come off easily. I went to Dollar General and bought 20 pens for $1.50, and they come apart very easily. If the bottom will not come off with blunt force, feel free to cut the bottom off.
You will also need to slighty crush the end of the barrel if the bullet will roll anywhere you don't want it to, like into the gun.
Step 3: Attaching the barrel to the gun
It is not necessary to actually tape in the barrel, just wrap the tape around the end of the pen barrel until when you insert the pen into the gun barrel it fits very snuggly, and does not fall out.
