So, I sat and thought, and thought, and thought about what to do. Then it hit me- I should make it better myself!!! I took the cheap plastic gun to The Underground (our basement shop) and opened it up. Actually, I started to open it up, but my dad walked in, saw what I was doing, and told me NOT to open it up. Unless there was something wrong with it, I should LEAVE IT ALONE. Period. That night (in my room) after everyone was in dreamland (wherever THAT is), I opened it up anyway. I didn't have any idea what to do to keep the darts from jamming up, so I closed it up and did some research. What this instructable contains is the results of that research. Also, at the end of this instructable, I will post a drawing of me using the gun.
I would like to pleasantly note that unless you are skilled at opening such cheap pieces of....stuff, I would recommend taking care when opening up, and re-assembling this.....toy. It would also help if you had a trusted adult (don't ask my dad) to help you with this project-he/she probably knows more about fixing things than you do-if you get stuck ask him. Otherwise, proceed to the next page, get what you need, and let's get started!
Step 1: Gather Materials
-A Tommy 20 Air Blaster gun (DUH)
-A Dremel rotary tool
-A regular (+) screwdriver that will fit the plastic case screws
-12 rubber bands-I used bands that have a diameter of appoximatly 1"
-A hot glue gun
-Your "trusted adult"
Once you've found everything, proceed to the next step.
