So Nerf has now become a full time addiction, but I feel that I need to share some of the things I've learned modding nerf guns last year. I will be getting a stock rapidstrike in 2 weeks so expect a mod guide for how to build one exactly like Coop772 or as I call it Coop Spec Rapidstrike.

I've also got a Rayven Mod guide planned. It'll show how to make your Nerf Rayven into a screaming beast by showing how to add a LiPo battery, and rewire it properly.

So hopefully you'll stick around and check out my stuff. I definitely plan to start documenting more of my Nerf builds because I feel that it'll help people feel less intimidated in the wild world of modding Nerf guns.

I just want to make you aware of the fact that, if you are an instructable member, and click on your "What am I up to? Check here!" link, you (in this case me) get to your own Instructables orangeboard, instead of yours. I'd suggest fixing this by typing in the link:
"http://www.instructables.com/member/JonnyBGood?sho..." and taking this as link instead.
You're welcome :)

Thanks I'll fix that when I have time. Super late response I know but better than never. I honestly had intents at sticking around but things change.

what up man!

Hey guys!
I'm back with new plans. So here's what's up: expect a bullpup gun, simple pin design; and a bullpup gun concept, slingshot with a removable magazine.
I've been a bit busy lately mainly due to a new hobby which I need to balance time bet we knex and it.
Anyway that's what I got going on. Stay awesome as always!

Those sound like cool ideas! Whats your new hobby? Also I hear you gave Lucas the boss some mech idea for him to try out. Would it be okay if I take a look at the idea? or is it top secret?

JonnyBGood (author)  sonic broom1 year ago
Okay so first off, my new hobby is nerf. I've always had a lot of guns laying around and I've finally accumulated the skills I needed to be a pretty good modder. I'm also a model car builder and painter, so modded guns with sweet paint jobs.
As for that mechanism, let me sketch that up for you because I never did get around to starting it but it was a lot more practical than my last mechanism. Basically its the nerf crossbolt idea, pull back which pulls back the elastic band and pushes back the chambering arm behind the magazine, then pulling forward pulls a round out of the mag and into the firing chamber.
I'll post a picture up here tomorrow for you if you don't mind the wait. I got a lot of work this summer. Also I'm ramping up for a nerf war in Indianapolis with nerfrocketeer and as a mechanical engineer I don't intend to be outgunned. =D

Okay cool! I have a few Nerf guns too. What kind of model cars do you make?

JonnyBGood (author)  sonic broom1 year ago

Mainly sports and exotic super cars. I got a thing for the cars I will mostly likely never own. Also here's some of my Nerf work. I got more pictures in the forums.


Very nice!

Cool! do you plan on getting your other KNEX guns posted soon?

JonnyBGood (author)  sonic broom1 year ago

Well.... we'll see. I drift from idea to idea really easily, so I really need to update my project list because my current project isn't on the list. Expect a possible appearance of Competitor VI and a two stage trigger TR8 I've been working on.

Yeah I'm the same I can't stay focused on a KNEX gun for too long I just get a new idea and I start on that. Is your two stage TR8 kind of like the SwagBoss?

JonnyBGood (author) 1 year ago

So I'm back again!

I will willingly admit I'm fully on the nerf thing now. No this does not mean I'm selling knex and making huge changes. I'm just going to be posting some nerf stuff for right now. Expect a painting guide for the stampede to come this week in a new format!

Nice that you are back! At first I read it that you WERE going to be selling your K'nex and I was like "Dang, I hope he doesn't!" LOL.

Got some ideas for me?
