you can also use a metal bb or a small lead fishing weight those work very well and sting when they hit

saber5 (author)jkimm72012-09-18

I used a lead one and they absolutely kill and to make them stay in you can rap some tape round the back of the pellet

nerfer192 (author)biggunner2007-11-26

~Z~ (author)2010-02-27

You haz the rapidfire AS-20 too? I barely see any people who haz it. I'm the only one in my school who has it.

Does it add more range? If so how much?

I haven't tried these types but ones similar add about 30% range to stock streamline darts.

cool aclaim4 (author)2009-04-17

dis is good because I can never find any streamline darts for my recon

usnavyseals199 (author)2009-02-21

What a great idea! And to think I was about to buy a bunch of darts for my gun. These work with the N-Strike models, correct? Because all the others just jam when you try and fire them.

nerfer192 (author)usnavyseals1992009-02-24

yup they will

usnavyseals199 (author)2009-02-21

This is a great idea, and to think I was about to buy a whole bunch of new darts for my gun! These work on the N-Strike models, correct?

bar1ow111 (author)2008-09-23

what gun is that?

nerfer192 (author)bar1ow1112008-09-27

rapid fire 20 its similair to the wildfire and tommy 20

i dont know about the wildfire but it is not much like the tommy 20 except for it being a machine gun. the rapid fire 20 you have to pump a lot but it works quite well.

POTT PIE (author)2008-08-28

does it work in all guns??

enaris (author)POTT PIE2008-12-17

Depends... I modded my recon to accept most ammo, but it should be about the same length as a normal dart (from tip to base) as a streamlined for best effect in any of the bolt- action nerf guns- longshot and recon, as the retaining switch at the front is what pushes the dart into the barrel. You can lose air pressure if its too short, and it wont go as far.

fazizal (author)POTT PIE2008-09-17

i have one that does type in long shot i should be the first one it better than this one

nerfer192 (author)POTT PIE2008-08-28


enaris (author)2008-12-17

Just a suggestion, but the bb step is easier if you keep the little blue column on the tip (or black or white, depending on the dart) in place, but cut it shorter, and glue it in... its about the same weight as a bb, and itll stick easier. Also, it's recycling mats you already have!

imthatguy1125 (author)2008-12-07

is foam backer rod called foam backer rod at lowes

Tom Buckey (author)2008-10-26

what does it do to the dart ??????? i dont get what it does ur simply putting a bb inside it

nerfer192 (author)Tom Buckey2008-10-26

well the hot glue is aeorodynamic and the bb gives it weight, and it flies better.

Tom Buckey (author)nerfer1922008-10-29

oh thnx kk

POTT PIE (author)2008-08-27

How well does this dart work??

nerfer192 (author)POTT PIE2008-08-27


mind13 (author)2008-06-21

I use crayon.if you use 1/2 inch long crayon in the darts you shouldnt need hot glue.

killer324 (author)mind132008-08-25

jacksteal4 (author)2007-12-27

well when you shoot the regular darts out of a modded gun the tips brake off so i just wait till that happens

nerfer192 (author)jacksteal42008-01-07
