This is my first Instructable, So hello.
Have you ever thought what would happen if you combine LEGO with Nerf? Well it turns out you get this....
I have had two of these guns for about a year now, and want to share it with the world now that I have finished university.
The concept came from the barricade, and wanted to modify but I didn't want to damage it (as it was a present from a friend).
-Range: over 15 meters /50 feet
-Rate Of Fire: 35 darts in under 17 seconds
-Lithium Ion powered (14.8v 900 MAh) lasts up to 8 Hours of use
-Sturdy in battle, no bits drop off when being handled roughly, yet the parts are not glued together in any way, only 3 switches are glued onto the sides of a few bricks.
-Firing push rod always resets itself to quickly fire the next shot, with a smart circuit to eliminating misfiring.
-Light enough to duel wield. (The club I was in stopped me doing so, as I consistently owned them with it) ^_^
-Volume is less than the Nerf Barricade
-Customizable color (red, blue, yellow, white, black or a combination of them)
Well...... see what you think (And if you like it Please Comment, Rate and Vote for it)
And if you are building it, please let me know how it is going/went.
A 3D look at the gun.
A close up look of the internal mechanism:
As you can see from the video, there is a easily accessible safety switch which turns the gun on and off, and a Voltage indicator that shows my gun is 90% charged.
The video shows how the push rod always resets itself back into the same position every time a shot is fired, without this circuit there was a potential lag between pressing the trigger and firing a shot, the circuit also eliminates the gun miss-firing a second shot.
The cogs are used to slow the motor down 5:1, there is potentially a way to change the gearing to increase the rate of fire, I like the speed that it is now, but feel free to experiment.
