Introduction: Repairing and Reinforcing STREAMLINE Darts.

This instructable will teach you how to reinforce and repair Streamline darts. As you probably know, the N-Strike Longshot Cs-6 jam ALOT. and everytime it happens, darts get damaged, therefore jamming happens more frequently. Here is how it works.

Step 1: What You Need

1. N-Strike Longshot CS-6
2. STREAMLINE Darts
3. Scotch tape
4. Common sense

Step 2: Reinforcing

wrap tape around where the foam and rubber meet, don't let any tape touch the rubber. Wrap around securely so there isnt any wrinkles but not too tight, as this may cause a problem with inserting ammo into the cartridge. What the tape does is protect the front of the dart from the loading process. When you cock the gun, it inserts the dart into the barrel, sometimes, (particulary in jams) it catches the top of the barrel and either tears, bends, or just rips in half. It usually only rips with modded guns. The slick and smooth surface of the tape allows the dart to succesfully load everytime. :D

Step 3: Repairing

here's how to repair them. wrap tape around tears, serious wrinkles, or bends. DO NOT COVER DART COMPLETELY IN TAPE. If you do, the dart will be so smooth, it will pop right out of the ammo clip. Also, the extra weight will interfere with flight.

Step 4: Not Really a Step.

Guess what? You're done.....yep. now go shoot someone before i call the police. :P

    I'll show my brother, but also another way to help with the shredding is to spray the darts with adhesive concrete spray on stuff, hope the helps.

    The longshot definintly isnt the best nerf gun out there. Nerf has just developed a new sniper rifle. I forgot its name but you can change the parts around into 5 different guns.

    Recon is not a sniper rifle, it shoots 25 feet, and jams every 2 shots

    The gun i was talking about is the NERF N-STRIKE RECON CS-6. It too only uses STREAMLINE darts.

    why shouldnt you wrap the whole dart in tape? will it affect its performance?

    Yes. The darts that come with the gun hardly fit the barrel anyways. So the more tape the "fatter" the dart get's more jamming you get :)

    so for simplistic reasons this is what I mean.
    Too Much Scotch Tape + Streamline Darts = Wider darts
    Wider Darts = More jamming
    More Jamming = BAD

    Another thing about repairs: i recently had a dart rip in half. All I had to do was STAPLE the dart back together and then tape around the staple. It's like it never ripped
