Introduction: Nerf Assault Rifle - the NEC-18
Do you need a Nerf gun that looks cool and kicks massive amounts of @$$. Here it is, the NEC-18, my rival gun to some of the NK3AE's supertak guns.
NOTE-I am not an actual enemy to NerfRocketeer, this is all in good fun. Go check out him out, he's got cool mods and nerf instructions and even some innovative Knex designs, such as a camera tripod and a medicine cabinet.
Lets get started :D.

Go to http://nerfelitecorps.weebly.com for the NEC.
Step 1: Materials
If adding the mods-
Epoxy or other strong adhesive.
Soldering iron and solder if not using adhesive
*I have only done the overvoltage mods, the rest require me to wait for warmer temps (its the end of winter here in Michigan)
Small, high voltage battery pack, like the one in RC cars. You may need two.
Recon or retaliator barrel
Centerfire Tech Scope (nitron)
Light beam sight (recon)
Bipod (stampede or centurion)
Red dot sight (sold separately)
18 dart mag, or 25 dart drum (the 18 mag is sold separately, but is packaged with some Nerf guns, the 25 comes with the rampage. 35 just looks tacky, as the drum is not centered)
Whatever you want
I will be using krylon fusion when warm temps come. black body, silver or green stripe across the side with the phrase "NEC-18". It will say Nerf Elite Corps somewhere on it.
Painter's tape for details
I noticed something about this. I drew out some sketches for my rebarreling and painting this summer. When I wrote them up for this gun, it kind of looks like the HBRa3 from Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, minus the banana mag. I am planning on buying a Demolisher, so there ya go. Both a custom gun and the first nerf HBRa3.
Step 2: Mods
I closed up my gun already, and I'd rather sit at my computer than open it back up. I put my tools away, so I would have to hunt them down to show the stuff.
When you open the gun, you will see a dart pusher, some small electronics, and the flywheels. Right around the trigger, you will see a small chip. Cut the wires from this, it is called the Thermistor. Put the wires together and solder or glue them so they reform the circuit. You can pitch the thermistor if you want. Go to the wires that attach to the battery compartment. Carefully extract them from there, and reroute them directly into the compartment by drilling two small holes and inserting the wires into the compartment. Take the higher voltage battery and attach the wires to it, but don't make it permanent! Just make sure it is snug.
Add a piece of PVC pipe to the barrel to lengthen it or re-barrel the whole thing. This is just aesthetic, and will probably reduce the range by a few feet.
Step 3: Gun Assembly
I am using the raider stock and recon barrel. This would look better right now with a blue stryfe and retaliator barrel, but I do not have those.
My attachments are a light beam sight, a sling strap, and a scope.
Put the stock and barrel on and desired attachments and you have a kicka** gun.
