Introduction: Nintendo Zapper Nerf Gun

Picture of Nintendo Zapper Nerf Gun

I used parts from a pneumatic nerf gun to enable a classic Nintendo zapper to shoot nerf darts.
You pump it up, load a dart, and then pull the trigger to fire. The classic firing noise has been preserved. Ranges are about 45 feet with a suction cup nerf dart. Functionality as a light gun has not been preserved.

Yer I know, I was jus' kidding bro. I'm a nintendo guy, so I take this differently, you get me?

ok i took the gun i got apart and i see how the trigger n pump would fit but i see no way to relocate the barrel 90 degrees to fit in the zapper barre. if you can give me a hint there then i can make mine

i just bought the nerf gun he used to make this, if any one has a spare nes zapper that doesn't work, send it to me so i can make an instructable so others will know how to make it

I will see what I can do, there seems to be a good deal pf demand for some instruction on this.

Maxaxle (author)2009-12-13

IMO, you should have made it from a better gun.

Flashflint (author)Maxaxle2009-12-13

This is the only gun that fit in the shell.

Z1ggy (author)2009-08-11

i think we need an instructable for this.

Flashflint (author)Z1ggy2009-08-12

The thing is, It takes a lot of sanding and fiddling to get all the parts to fit and work. It would be hard to come up with something that could be considered comprehensive instructions. Next time I open it up, I will put up some internal pictures.
