This instructable explains how to make yourself a bb gun from your old nerf gun and some other parts. Some could say this is a mod of]
from Perjak but this is different by quite a bit. In this you sacrifice your gun for a stronger airsoft gun. And I am sorry perjak because i did kinda steal just the pen or straw sticking out.

Step 1: Materials

Materials list is pretty short:
All you need is your gun
A screwdriver (to get the head off)
Airsoft pellets or bbs
a strong straw
a mechanical pencil
a LOT of tape
perhaps a rubber band for the more auto-loady less dependable peice

Step 2: Remove Unnessasary Items

Just start unscrewing near the head or barrel until you can work it loose. Then if you want you can unscrew everything else to look at the guts and check if they work.

Step 3: Create Your New Barrel.

With this all you need to do is put a small hole in your straw which is smaller than your bbs. Then completely kill your pencil and have only the outer part and the "plunger" with the white part cut off. Then use your large amounts of tape to securely put the part on the outside over the straw and a little off to the side.
Optional: make yourself a little "bb door" from a tiny peice of another straw and tape that to the side of the barrel so it holds the bb in a tank thing better and you can aim anywhere.

Step 4: More Taping

Simply tape your straw onto place in your open nozzle of the compression tank so a bb can go back there against the "door" except that the loader is blocking the way.

Step 5: Testing, Adjusting, Testing, Adjusting More

Now to fire, put the bbs inside the open part of the mechanical pencil and put the "plunger" on top. Gently push down with the plunger until you feel a little give and the bb will have dropped into the compartment. Now if you want, check down the barrel and you should see the bb in place but held but the by indented straw. Now pump and shoot. If the bb doesn't come out, the mechanical pencil is held too toghtly on and open it up more. If the bb falls out it needs to be tighter. If the bb cant make if into the compartment the hole is too small and you're too far off.

Step 6: Shoot

Now pump and shoot.... pretty fast...

that water gun is very good if you pump him 50x

Man.....not to be a jerk or anything but, that is a waste of a a SupermaXX 1500 old edition!!!!! You know how much you can get for one of those on ebay/NerfHaven? I've paid $20+ for a SupermaXX 750 (old edition). If you're going to do this, do it with a cheaper not-as-rare one like the Air Tech 2000 or something. The SupermaXX 1500 is one of the best that Nerf has provided. And everyone, join my site at Join NOW and you'll get a nice incentive.

I can not believe that, that thing was a piece of junk.
Thank you for telling me!

benfoxg (author)2008-12-20

yes it is, I believe it is a suppermaxx 1500. am I the only one with a nerfhaven account around here?

nerfer (author)benfoxg2009-05-07

no, your not alone.. i am there too.

oh1134 (author)benfoxg2009-01-22

OH YEAH... When I posted this comment, I would have said it was a squirt gun.

yukas (author)2009-01-22

the straw is not needed

sharlston (author)yukas2009-04-06

it is to reload and to make the bb fly straighter for more power and accuracy

PKTraceur (author)2009-03-03

Does this work for water guns? -PKT

benfoxg (author)2008-12-20

waste of rare nerf guns. (supermaxx and 1st gen nf)

MR Bobb (author)2008-12-15

Sounds very fragile

rada194 (author)2008-10-07

that looks like a water gun

legokevin360 (author)2008-06-11

your right


legokevin360 (author)2008-06-11

hurry up

legokevin360 (author)2008-06-11

prety good dude

DIY Dave (author)2007-06-10

Could you use a super soaker (squirt gun) for this in a similar way?

Rishnai (author)DIY Dave2008-03-29

You know those squirt guns that you pump like crazy for a minute or so, but then will shoot several bursts of water or one big one, depending on how long you hold the trigger? If you swapped the nozzle for a barrel, you could easily use one of those. As for the Super Soaker Glorified Tube With A Plunger, I don't see how it wouldn't work, so I guess go for it.

thingygoboom (author)DIY Dave2007-06-23

Well if you really wanted to. The thing is is that the super soaker gives a stream instead of one push. Though you could make an smg of sorts... ill look into it. Or you could attach a bottle (water or gatorade) to the front and put a quick release beyond that to shoot a bb at high speeds... im gonna try that... thanks for asking!

Mike.Magz (author)2007-11-06

what is the plunger?

dudyman (author)2007-11-03

it sounds like it isn't very accurate because of all the tape

paulm (author)2007-08-28

i have the same model of airsoft gun converterd to a bb/dart gun as well! I put sights on mine and made an airtight seal between a barrel and a ballpoint pen casing that allows me to fire bb's a a higher velocity then my 35 year old dasiy bb gun,

say88got (author)2007-05-26

how do you makethat bb gun out of the nerf gun with the lazer pointer

thingygoboom (author)say88got2007-05-28

You just hot glue the straw into the head and hot glue some other parts on ill have pix soon

Mace42 (author)2007-05-14

pretty cool. ill make one as soon as i get my hands on a crappy nerf gun

Vendigroth (author)2007-05-14

i've got a little paintball popgun, it uses a spring to push a piston forward thereby providing the pressuse, shoots the paintball, you get the picture. Having run out of paintballs one day, i decided to make some alternative ammunition. I started with balls of blu-tak: no good, v. little range and accuracy, so i extended the design into a more sort of slug-shape and added a cavity at the back, now it acted like a parachute. Great stuff. A few more tries and i had blu-tak slugs and steel balls, wrapped in tissue paper to get a good fit in the barrel. I'd also got a confetti gun recently. I emptied a few of the confetti shells and they were fairly heavy plastic, just big enough to fit in the gun.....and if i put the red percussion cap back on the end, they were explosive tipped.... in my right hand, i held the gun, aimed an my left forearm and fired. The little explosion from the cap only singed a few hairs, but the plastic shell made a bif o-shaped bruise on my arm for weeks I don't know where i'm going with this, but i'll tell you: When done correctly, your own ammo and designs are better than the manufacturer's

thingygoboom (author)Vendigroth2007-05-14

often it is true and when your guns break you know where everything is and it is easy to fix. Manufacturer guns fall apart readily and are hard to actually open up. thankyou!

Easy Button (author)2007-05-13

looks cool might make it but one question wat nerf gun is that in ur pic??

thingygoboom (author)Easy Button2007-05-13

Sorry cant help you there its something thats pretty old tho... On another Note! just saying i have checked the spring guns and i did manage to make it using hot glue drilling a hole in the top. Shoots really well too still have a welt from seeing if it shot.

perjak (author)2007-05-13

hey looks pretty sweet. ive been wondering how to make it so you dont have to muzzle load every shot you want to take. a mechanical pencil is a good idea. and dont worry, instructables is about sharing ideas. good instructable, i hope to see more. thanks - Perjak
