Nerf Dart Mod for Extra Distance

Introduction: Nerf Dart Mod for Extra Distance

Make nerf darts go further and hit with more force with a few simple items.

::::::::::WARNING!!!!::::::::::

I am not responsible for what you do with this dart. This dart is more powerful than other dart mods simply because it uses a pen instead of a straw.

Distances with/without mod:
(note this is with my modded nite finder pointing straight forward. will go lots farther at a slight angle.)

without mod:
32.5 feet

with mod:
38.25 feet

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: The Stuff You Need

materials:

nerf dart
a pen (BIC pen or something like that)
green knex rod

tools:

pliers (NOT needle nosed)
saw

Step 2: The Dart

pull off the top of the dart so that you just have a foam tube. the glue should be weak enough so that you can remove it without cutting.

Step 3: The Pen

with the pliers, remove the ink shaft part and the bottom. If you can't get the bottom off, feel free to use the saw to cut it off.

Step 4: Putting It Together

1. push the knex piece into the pen shaft until it is completely in there.
2. wiggle the pen shaft into the dart.
3. cut off the extra pen shaft with the saw.
4. you're done!

Step 5: Using It

this very strong dart should be able to leave a small bruise. needless to say, don't fire at other people. if you want, you can glue the pen shaft to the dart to secure it better.

    You can't really buy just one part. You have to buy like 100, so just look on ebay!

    Do you know if there's a way to use this mod with a suction cup? and have you tried? If not I might fiddle around with it.

    6 feet! I mean is that cool or what? I've made stefans. Stefans+My singled, plug-pumped AT2K=Dents in walls, furniture, and people. So your saying that you're shooting the green k'nex connector bits? You know, .12 airsoft bbs fit perfectly in the barrel and work MUCH better.

    Stefans will outdistance and outpower nearly any other type of dart as long as they are made correctly.
