Introduction: Make Your Longshot Darts Go Further

in this instructable (my first one) i will show you how to make your Nerf streamline darts go farther by about 3-5 feet( not measured)...at least they did on my longshot. Does your longshot shoot 3 feet in front of you if it is parallel to the ground(out of box)? Did it not stand up to the "30 foot range" when it came out of the box?

Step 1: Find Your Darts...streamline Only

go out there into the jungle and find as many darts as you can. I had 42, but lost a lot outside...

Step 2: Cut the Dart Tips

as the title says, cut the dart tips, but no lower than the hole!!!!! i reccomend sticking the scissors into the small hole and cutting around in a circle.

Step 3: Trimming

after that, trim the flabbiness so that all you see is a spiky circle/hexagon (different types came with the guns from those that didn't)it should be nice and smooth.

Step 4: Fill the Magazine

my magazine holds 1-13 iof the normal darts, i don't have enough left of the modded ones.(only 11)

Step 5: Insert

insert the magazine into the gun the proper way. don't mind the red duct tape and the extra length. I modded two magazines into one

Step 6: Loading the Gun

push the bolt forward and bang! its loaded....now please...don't shoot me...XD

Step 7: Fire!

let me know how it went

    i kinda broke them(some1 stepped on it before i could finish) but i cut off the bottom of one (after removing the spring/screws) and cut off the top of anotehr, and taped them together...i made a k'nex loader, that pushes the darts into the chamber, and added a rubber band I could try to post a how-to, but i don't have any more mags and am broke 'cause im buying laser tags guns now...if i get two more, i'll show you how to

    i reckon it might make the darts fly further if u somehow harden them up and add i small anount of rubber to the end, so that more air pressure can build up.

    You can spray the darts with WD-40, one guy says it works.

     for me the dart didn't go further (this is from raider and i live is australia) but it was more accurate thanks for the idea it worked.
     keep up the good work
