Semi-Automatic Nerf Nitron Mod

FeaturedContest Winner
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.

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
Did you do any range tests?

You could've also put an interrupter circuit on the motor and made a switch-mode blaster.

All right!
Do use the Bright-color attachments whenever you go out, your idea is just as neat that way.
