In this Instructable I'm going to show you how to mod a Nerf Nitron into a semi-automatic gun. You might ask yourself, who in their right mind would turn a fully automatic gun into a half automatic one? The answer is simple, it gives you better control, is lighter and who has ever fired a Nerf Nitron knows how ridiculously slow it normally is. This combined with a voltage mod makes this gun simply amazing (now it takes about 5 seconds to fire 20 shots).

This mod is not for beginners, don't proceed unless you are certain, that you are able to do it.

before (9V) after the mod (14.8V)
Weight [g] 1577 789
Length [cm] 65.5 41.5
Time to empty 20 shot magazine [s] 12 5-6

It also shoots a lot further, but I don't have the possibility to compare them at the moment.

Step 1:

What you need:
•  Nerf Nitron
•  Modeling clay (e.g. Apoxie Sculpt or Milliput)
•  Body filler (optional, e.g. Bondo)
•  Tension spring
•  M3 screw 20 mm long
•  sanding paper
•  Strong, two component glue
•  4 X AAA battery holder case (3 x 3.7V batteries and one 1.5V)
•  Primer, paint, clear coat
•  Silicone Spray Lubricant

•  Hot glue gun
•  Strong two component glue
•  Soldering iron, solder
•  Phillips screwdriver
•  Pliers
•  Fretsaw or scroll saw
•  Drill (3 mm drill bit)
•  Diamond file
I can't see the video :/ can you do anything about it?
Cool tho. Try making one with variable fire types.
Wtf is this.
I'm not much of a fan of black/grey nerf guns but after seeing the video, I was still impressed. It's like a stryfe for vortex; 5/5 <br>Did you do any range tests?
<p>except stryfe is cheaper, more accurate, has more tac rails, etc</p>
Sweet :)
Hey congratulations on being a finalist in the hack it contest! Good luck to you!
the foamy lookin thing thats for the gray thing to slide on right? the thing superglued to the orange thing u added from the blaster
this would be SO MUCH better if there was even just ONE &quot;before&quot; picture of what the entire blaster looked like
I've uploaded a comparison picture, I hope you like it.
ANGEL BREECH!!! kidding... <br> <br>You could've also put an interrupter circuit on the motor and made a switch-mode blaster.
All right! <br>Do use the Bright-color attachments whenever you go out, your idea is just as neat that way.
