Picture of How to Mod  a Nerf Dart to Fire in Your Longshot CS-6.

This is my first instructable and a extremely easy one.
One day i got tired of checking if walmart had any "streamline" darts for my longshot, every time i go they say theres none in stock or they dont carry them any more, so i decided to make my own.

-Nerf Longshot CS-6
-Nerf darts

Step 1: Cutting the Dart Tip

This part is easy just cut off a piece of the tip of the dart. Then just cut around the tip until there is mostly just the flat tip left (it should look like pic 2).

Step 2: Getting Rid of the Dart Tips Edge

Now cut the edge of the tip a little, just cut dont to deep or the top flat piece(pic 1)!
Then rip off the edge slowly, dont rip the Styrofoam(pic 2).

Step 3: Your Done!

After step 2 it should look like the pic. It should also fire. For some reason these flat tipped darts fly further than my last remaining dart I have that came with the gun.

Thank you so much!! I found one of these Nerf guns at the thrift store for $3 and a bunch of those darts with the velcro and was sad to find out the right ones. I am so glad I found this! I just pulled the tip off and closed just the hole at the end with some hot glue. It does shoot harder and further than his other nerf guns, but it does fish tail after about 10ft....will have to play around with it a little before christmas to fine tune it!

waw tanks it actually works but zombie strike bullets work better

Rip the head off and proceed to fill top part with hot glue. Keep turning the dart so the hot glue dosent drip all the way down the center.

Those are just paramedic scissors.......also, I agree with the guy below me, just buy some streamline darts.

U would think that buyin stream line bullets would be so much faster

this doesnt work at all

mr.guy (author)2009-04-20

ahhhhhhh i see what ur doing ur cutting off the top so that the barrel will allow the bullet to pass through hmmmmmmm smart idea. i had destroyed some of my magstike darts trying to shoot it without the mod. thx for answering my concern

Is there supposed to be a hole in the top when you cut off the Velcro part on a tagger dart?

Bobcorncob (author)Bobcorncob2008-11-09

And if it does, will that affect the range?

xSaeftx (author)Bobcorncob2009-04-04

No, the hole is glued up when you take the cap off. "Ill Advised" is right though, these micro darts do shoot farther. But i still like stephans the best.

I think this is too light, I think adding BBs will help

mailman575 (author)2008-11-29

so you just cut the orange peice off? and thats it? i think you should put a bb in there.

with those quarter cutting scissors my friend cut a cellphone in half

cmd1237 (author)2008-07-21

you would think they would go shorter

This will work with a Recon CS-6 too, right?

dsman195276 (author)CapnTac2008-07-05

kinda, mine used to jam. take the air restrictor out and the little peg that sticks out and you will be fine.

Blister (author)2008-01-27

These really work. Thx

maxxxem (author)Blister2008-06-03

you can also stick on an air restrictor from a gun to improve the distance, yes an air restrictor. 3*

About yesterday I got like 6 of the velcro ones and did that, then saw this and said "wow that looks alot like most of my darts!" They shoot like a dream, but with a lot of fishtailing if you can't weight it with BBs correctly.
