Introduction: Super Easy Nerf Grappling Gun
For this Instructable we are going to build a very quick and easy Nerf grappling gun. It is basically just a dart mod.
All you are doing is adding a tri barbed fish hook to the end of the bullet.
This gun shoots around 15 feet depending on the length of fishing line you use and the weight of your hook.
Now, onto the parts list.
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Parts and Tools
>Nerf pistol (I used the Reflex gun)
>fishing line (In this case 20 lb test will do)
>a tri barbed fishing hook (get a larger one for better chances of hooking something)
>a Nerf bullet (whistler darts work the best)
>small wire clippers
>a small phillips head screwdriver
>small needle nosed pliers (mine weren't in the photo)
Step 2: Prepare the Nerf Bullet
For the first step you are going to cut off the end of the bullet.
Start at the whistler hole and cut around the entire bullet.
You should be let with half of the end cap still on.
Now, poke a hole through the middle of the end cap with your small screwdriver.
This will allow the hook and the fishing line to go through.
Step 3: Thread the Fishing Line
Now we are going to add the thread the fishing line through the bullet.
First, tie the line to the end of your screwdriver.
Then, poke the screwdriver all the way through the bullet until you can reach the line on the end of the screwdriver.
Pull the fishing line off the screwdriver and out of the end of the bullet two or three feet.
Finally, pull the screwdriver out.
Step 4: Add the Hook
We are almost done!!
Pull about 15 feet of fishing line through the bullet.
Remember, keep the bullet on the line.
Tie the hook to the line that is sticking out the front of the bullet.
Pull on the line until the hook is stuck in the bullet.
The hooks should be sticking out the side of the bullet.
Step 5: Tie the Line to the Gun
Finally, tie the other end of the fishing line to the gun.
I tied mine through a hole I made in the finger guard.
Put the bullet in the gun, cock, and fire.
