Picture of Modifying The Nerf Dart Tag Blaster (DTB)
I have had this gun for awhile now, and I always wanted it to be better. This is my first Nerf modification done entirely by myself, so I hope it works for all of you who own this gun.

Step 1: Materials

You will need: a knife, three different sized screwdrivers (for the three screw sizes), a hot glue gun (optional), glue, a straw (optional) and a Nerf DTB.

Step 2: Unscrew everything

Get rid of all the screws. There are two sizes holding the gun together, look at the picture for details.

Step 3: The internals

Take apart the gun. For the first part we will be working with the barrel turret thing. Lift it up, and a shaft will come with it. Leave leave everything else where it was, as most of the modification is with the barrel turret piece.

Step 4: Taking out the air restrictors (ARs)

There will be five screws that connect the black piece to the orange barrels. Unscrew all of them to get to the ARs. The ARs consist of three pieces: A 3 pronged piece (dispose), a spring (dispose) and a piece with a long stick on it. Break off the stick part, and using the knife, cut out the center to allow more air to flow through. Now glue them back onto the black thing to ensure a good seal.

Step 5: Increase airflow (optional)

At the front of the plunger tube is a little black piece in front of a spring. This piece directs air to the barrels causing a dart to be fired. However, due to the shape of this piece, a large amount of air is lost getting to the barrel. Cut a straw so it is no taller than the black piece and use a hot glue gun to glue it in the center of the black piece. Make sure that there are no gaps where air can escape (see second picture), and put the piece back in the gun. *Note* If this step is done incorrectly it could decrease rather than the increase the performance of your gun. That is why this step is considered optional.

does it have to be a hot glue gun?

Not sure exactly what you mean there. In the parts list it does say 'optional' so I hope that helps to answer your question.

i tried your mod and it shot 5 feet. I ended up glueing those center things back on and it increased the range to where it was originally. Do you know what happened?
lnknprkfrk13 (author)  limeblisss5 years ago
I'm gonna assume you mean the AR's. It sound like you just took them off, rather than cutting out the center, and gluing them back on. If you look at the 4th step it should explain everything regarding the AR removal. If that doesn't help, you can always PM me.

Great mod, but how far does it shoot?
lnknprkfrk13 (author)  NerfAssault5 years ago
Well saying as it's a simple AR removal, it adds about 10 to 15 feet to the stock ranges. I'm guessing it shoots from around thirty to forty feet with pretty decent power behind a dart.

Instead of the rubber band, cant u just pull the spring a bit to make the spring bigger?
lnknprkfrk13 (author)  MewTwo1976 years ago
In general you really don't want to stretch springs, as over time they an become weaker. If you wanted to you can stretch it, but in the long run I'd just rather add another spring or a rubber band to increase power.
Kool, i didn't know that.
