What I've got planned to do is modify a disposable camera flash below where the darts come out, and put a switch in the handle behind the trigger. That way when you pull the trigger the flash goes off as the dart comes out! Downside is that you have to wait for the flash to recharge before you fire again... May need a bigger battery.
come find me!!! i am a vampire!!

Gun looks cool, but with the glow stick there needs to be a modification. Cut the top or bottom of the glowstick off. Empty the stick. Then get a yellow or green LED and use button batteries with any form of switch. Its hard for me to describe since I personally haven't done it. But my friend has. Ill ask him about it. But with that approach to the glowstick, you want have to open the gun up every time you use the glowstick. Just a suggestion.
Did you use the darts that nerf has that glow, from the light of the gun, or did you actually even use the darts? Also it'd probably hard, but you could probably make it so that there would be a puff of smoke and then the light would look like muzzle flash, you could probably do the "Smoke" with flour
It looks like he tore out most of the guts of the gun to put in the LED lights so I doubt that it shoots much of anything :) It would be cool, however, to see up some contact points on the barrels so it makes a connection while the barrel is rotating to flash more LEDs to make it look like it's shooting... I'm sure that would be quite a bit more complex.
not really more complex, maybe wire up a button into the trigger, that'd probably be the simplest way, you could put in some aluminum foil maybe but it would wear down and you would have to take it all apart again which would be a pain
