Introduction: Mounting a Scope on a Nerf Strongarm

Picture of Mounting a Scope on a Nerf Strongarm

The Nerf Strongarm is one of the best blasters in Nerf's new elite lineup. It is well-balanced, fast, easy to use, and capable of reaching up to 100 feet! With all of this range, it is sometimes difficult to see where your dart has gone after firing, so it is necessary to add a scope. Adding a scope will not only improve the guns performance, but it will also make the gun more intimidating.

Step 1: Materialz

You will need: a Nerf Strongarm, a gun scope, flat rectangular pieces of plastic, two rubber pen grips, a small crosshead (phillips) screwdriver, a hot glue gun, and some hot glue.

Step 2: The Attachment Base

First, take the two plastic pieces and stack them. Next, slide the pen grips on. Cut off any excess rubber.

Step 3: Loosening the Scope Screws

Unscrew the screws on the scope mounting grips.

Step 4: Attaching the Base

Add the attachment base between the grips. Make sure it is centered. Finally, re-tighten the screws on the scope grips. The base should feel snug.

Step 5: Gluing and Attaching

Test to see if the base will fit on the slide of the Strongarm. If it does not, cut off any excess material from the base. Next, add glue down the center of the Strongarm slide. Then, attach the scope to the gun, with the base glued to the slide. As you wait for the glue to cool, look through the scope and make sure its facing straight towards the front of the gun.

Step 6: Done!!!

Congratulations! Your Nerf Strongarm now has a scope attachment! Thanks for viewing! Enjoy!!!

where the hell did you got a real sniper scope XD

you can get a scope just like that one used at wal-mart for about $10.00 in the bb gun area

i have the same I got it. At 10$ and I use it for airgun

well ya lemme tell you one thing

if you walk over street with that thing, even if it's in a bag

the police in the Netherlands will take it away and destroy it

because "it's a dangerous part of a gun"

I have shells and even those are "oh so dangerous"

yeh

shells

with no bullets

and broken primers

yeh

'deadly'

The scope or the whole thing?

the scope

anything that has to do with weapons are kinda illegal in the netherlands right now

but shells you can keep indoors

i hope

You're right this is accurate. I'm gonna add a stock and see how it goes.

Good luck!

EpicMinecrafter870 (author)2015-01-20

I have a firestrike I'm gonna apply this to.

Cool!

I didn't know that the Strongarm was out yet. I read that someone paid over $1,000 in an auction just so they could get a Strongarm when it wasn't officially out yet. BTW, nice Instructable.

Yep! That was me! :P jk
The strongarms out now at target for about $12.
Thanks!

Wow, $12 is pretty cheap. The only Nerf gun that I have is a Reflex.

Yeah there are other great Elite guns out that are pretty cheap, ie. the Triad; $5-$7, Firestrike; $10, elite Jolt; $3-$4, elite Reflex; $3-$5, and a few others. Most of which have awesome (upwards of 75 ft.) range! You should pick one up some time!

Great ible'! The end kind of scares me though...

JonnyBGood (author)JonnyBGood2013-06-20

How much was the scope?

nerfrocketeer (author)JonnyBGood2013-06-21

This one was pretty cheap, only about $30, but my other two were $40 and $150... The biggest and best one I put on my modded Longstrike, but I might get a Centurion this fall and put it on that. The medium sized one I put on a tactical rail attachment and I use it on all my NG's.

But I got some of them as gifts, so don't ask how I know the price...

;)

nerfrocketeer (author)JonnyBGood2013-06-21

Yup. Around here you can get in big trouble if you mess around too much with even nerf guns... Thats why I want to build my own Nerf War facility...
