I have been 'NERFing' for about 4 months now and I finally got the hang of it. This is my first NERF mod and not the best write up for it so bear with me.
How many times have you bought a nerf gun and were disappointed by the range? I know I was. So I decided to modify the internals to make it work better. the entire thing was pretty cheap(if you already have some of the things), and it makes this thing a beast for NERF wars.
Now, I am sorry to say that I forgot to take pictures of me making the real gun(painted one) but I happened to have another Target Tech pistol(it was a two for one sale lol) so I made the instructable on that, but some stuff I did not have two of, so they differ by some.
WARNING: This modification is very complicated(well some what). This is not for people looking for a easy mod. You need to understand the theory of spring power in NERF guns. If you mess up and break your toy don't spam 'DSman told me to do this and now my gun is broke'.
Step 1: Get Your Materals!
PVC: 3.00 $(10 foot long pipe)
"GOOP" glue: 3.00(I think)(Can you believe that you have to be 18 or older to buy this glue?!!?)
second spring: 6.00?(Depends on were you get the spring, I used one I had lying around, but the one from a NERF Nitefinder would also work)
All that is cheap, expect for the one odd part I used, the fake barrel from the stupid NERF Longshot pistol attachment. You could use coupler CPVC in place of it, that would be cheaper. Unless you really want this thing I would used the CPVC because it would be cheaper(3.00 as apposed to 30.00)
But, if you also want a long shot then I would recommended doing a sidearm integration to it(go to www.Nerfhaven.com to find it), as you will have the barrel left over to use here.
One thing I forgot to add in was the gun! I used a Target Tech. I would go on ebay to get it, as you have to buy it with a NERF Target(hence the name) which makes the gun cost around 20.00$, you could also find a lone pistol from the long shot on ebay for around 6.00 making it cheaper.
If you buy everything from a store including buying the entire long shot it will cost 62.00(not including tax).
If your willing to blow 62.00 on a gun then lets go for it!
