Homemade Nerf Gun: Parts

Intro: Homemade Nerf Gun: Parts

Here are the parts you will need for the gun:

  • Two long blue Tinker Toy rods
  • Three rubber bands
  • One Nerf dart
  • One clothespin

The second picture is the finished product.

Step 1: Step 1: Make Barrel

Take two rubber bands and connect the two blue rods so that the slots on the ends of the rods make one straight line.

Step 2: Step 2: Attach Trigger

Take the clothespin, and open it, and slide it on to one of the rubber bands on the barrel as shown.

Step 3: Step 3: Add Launching System

Slip the last (and most powerful) rubber band into the slot opposite the trigger (clothespin).

Step 4: Step 4: Fire!

To load, open the clothespin, pull back the launching rubber band, and put the end of the launching rubber band into the clothespin. You must then put a Nerf dart onto the barrel as shown in the second picture. Push the legs of the clothespin together to fire. Do not fire at eyes or face.

    Really cool! The propulsion used on this is similar to the crossbolt!
