Nerf Jolt Mod




About: Hello! I'm Nerfrocketeer, also known as Nefrock', Nerf, or NK. I am an avid fan of Nerf wars, engineering, and animal activism (but no I don't go overboard). Thank you for A MILLION views (woah!) and making ...

This is a simple rubber band mod for the Nerf Jolt. All it takes are some rubber band skills.

I apologize for the messed up pictures. Those will be replaced soon, as I am editing all of my first Instructables to make them better. Edit posted April 28, 2014. Hold me to it!

Step 1: Materials

You will need

-Nerf Jolt (Elite or N-Strike)

-Rubber bands (#64 work best)

Step 2: Loop

Hook band on plunger, then twist it over, then hook it over.

Step 3: Hook

Hook band around top of gun.

Step 4: Check

Make sure the band is hooked over the black overhang.

Step 5: You're Done!!!

Range should be improved. Enjoy! You can do this for multiple bands, until it becomes too difficult to prime.

This actually does not work too well. The stronger the bands the worse the range. There is an air restrictor that works against air flow. It tends to close the stronger it gets. The restrictor keeps the piston from bottoming out in the cylinder if there's no load/dart. If you remove that first then you'll see better range. Also, you can pull the head off the darts and trim some of the rubber neck off. Re-glue and the dart weighs less and gets better range. I've also trrimmed darts shorter to make them flush fit with the front of the barrel. This also reduces weight. Where did you get an orange one? I've only seen the blue ones here in Vegas.

removing the air restrictor actually damages the nerf gun.

Its more fun with the new jolt and needle darts or something :D or can use q-tips (take dart cut off front stick straw in duct tape straw to dart put in gun duct tape that to gun and put q-tip in) Very painful :D

The new Jolt (blue) and old Jolt (orange) are exactly the same thing, but different colors. However yes the Q-tip/toothpick/thumbtack trick can be fun/painful. ;)
