we are goin to be making homemade nerfdarts called "Stefans" they will out preform ANY stock nerf dart.

they are simple and easy to make, I made 200 in 45 minuets.

I aslo sell modded nerf guns and homemade nerf darts on ebay. if you are interested, I can set up a auction for you at a set price. So, if you have any modded guns that you would like to buy, or just want some darts, send me a message and ill see what i can do.

Step 1: Gather the stuff.

To make your own black darts of foamy death, you will need:

1. Foam backer rod. I use the 1/2 inch size. (the black stuff in the pic. its very cheap.)
2. BB's (or other weights, fishing weights work too.)
3. Hot glue and hotglue gun.
4. Pillow case
5. Hair dryer

got it all? ok! good, lets go to the next step.
<p><strong>It would be probably be cheaper and easier to just go to Walmart and buy some!</strong></p>
<p>Friends don't let friends buy from walwart... Buy from nice local people or shops!</p>
<p>Actually it wouldn't. A pack of 20 nerf darts costs 30 dollars. Also nerf darts are inaccurate due to the hole in the side of the tip which makes them curve when they are shot from the blaster. Steafan darts on the other hand are cheaper because a bag of half inch backer rod costs 3 bucks a thing of 200 bb's cost about 5 you can make more darts for cheaper. But the best alternative is &quot;koosh&quot; darts. They come in packs of 200 for 20 bucks shipped. If you look on youtube at coop772's review of koosh darts he clearly states they are better. if you want to buy some look up koosh darts on ebay.</p>
<p>Achully Koosh darts are a lot less accurate then stefan darts but they ARE cheaper</p>
<p>Where do I buy the foam backer rod???????</p>
<p>I just bought some at Lowes. Go to the area where they sell insulation for doors and windows. They sell both square and round, and in different dimensions, so make sure you get round 1/2 inch. It costs around 3 bucks for like 20 feet of foam.</p>
<p>I bought it at the home depot.</p>
wait is the backer rod hollow cuz if it isnt it wont work in most guns
No the backer rod is not hollow, and its not supposed to work in stock nerf guns, these will only workin in modded nerf guns without the air restrictors
The instructions was clear, you hollow out the dart. OR HOW WOULD U PUT THE BB INSIDE???
<p>you only need to hollow out enough at one end to place a bb in there. It would actually be really hard to hollow out the foam.</p>
Put hot glue in first then the BB then the hot glue
hollow out the foam stuff
hi how much would it cost for a fully modded nerf mavieck and 50 darts
<p>Your post is old, but if you still want it, what do you mean by fully modded? Send me a message if you still care.</p>
My darts stick to each other, how do i fix that?
Do u mind if I borrow this instructuble I will give you credit
The process leaves a black secretion on my gun. Any ways to get it off?
can u just use a broken nerf dart instead of the other stuff? plz reply
Yeah you can. Gotta cut the crap off though.
Sorry for the godawful spelling
yeah, i think so<br>
do these darts work in longshot clips?
If you make them the right length yeah. But if you want a shorter Stefan than you have to mod your mag. I saw the mod on Nerf Haven
Yeah, I discovered that a while ago :P thanks
I'm sorry, but your gun isn't the brightest looking crayon in the box. You should paint the other stuff on your gun, and maybe use an enamel or a better paint cuz it looks weird. Just how some parts are faded and others aren't. Just saying, but I like the instrucatable!
i got nerf stampede and it sucks more than i thought it would i mean it shoots ten feet-50 feet but my fridns say it hurts a little and i want it to hurt them i wish they had a anoption it zap the dart with lighting i the gun before it shoots so when i hits they get tazed
I see what You Mean. That'd be awesome!
6mm Standard Airsoft BBs. <br>They're incredibly Cheap.
would this stuff work for the backer rod ? <br> <br> <br>http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Everbuild-sealant-Backer-Rod-foam-Polyethylene-15mm-10m-/160489494833?pt=UK_Crafts_Cardmaking_Scrapbooking_Glue_Tape_EH&amp;hash=item255deb5931
so, then DONT poke a hole down the length of the dart like the stock darts, right?
old post but... yeah :P
I found this on Amazon since I can't find it locally, will it work? http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B001OBTZ8M/ref=dp_olp_new?ie=UTF8&amp;condition=new
old post but... yeah :P
If you can;t find the right size of backer rod, i bought them here : http://www.ebay.com/itm/20-Feet-1-2-Foam-Backer-Rod-Caulk-Saver-Polyethylene-/320699581803?_trksid=p4340.m444&amp;_trkparms=algo%3DPI.WATCH%252BCRX%26its%3DC%252BS%26itu%3DUCC%252BSI%252BUA%252BLM%252BLA%26otn%3D10%26po%3D%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D7191092406316104574#ht_500wt_1156<br><br>really cheap =D
i guess it ended :(
Those look EPIC. Could you possibly sell me some?
God! Can I get some of the foam at Menards, Farm & Fleet, or Wal Mart?
Walmart may have some.<br><br>what's Menards and Farm &amp; Fleet?
tkdswimmer. no they don't work without a modded nerf gun. if you notice, average darts have a hole down the back of them, so they fit into the rod that is down the barrel of the gun. without taking apart the gun, and breaking off that rod, the stefan's won't fit down the barrel. by the way, dismantling guns aren't as hard as it seems. I've dismantled my Maverick rev6 without doing harm the actual gun. Fires fine, and a lot more effective with the mod. I haven't made these stefans yet, but I can tell these are going to be good
I don't get how to take out the rod thingy... first i have to take out the metal bar inside the rev6 magizine, but I CANT TAKE IT OFF FOR ALL THE LEVERAGE I HAVE!!! help please?
use a claw headed hammer to get it off <br>
use a long skiny scissors and cut them out
take tho chamber completley apart
what i did was take a small screwdriver or punch about the size of the hole on the orange round piece put the cartridge on a table and use the screwdriver/punch with a hammer to tap the rod out worked perfectly just don't hit too hard.
i make my stefans full size and with the complete hole in the back you take a screw driver heat it with fire and make a hole
