How to mod nerf darts? Answered

make it being shot faster



cutting out the air restrictor does work best

instead take the air restrictor out of your gun and youll have alot more power!

I have an instructable on it. Type in zack attack and find me and go to my instructable.

To shoot faster you make the dart lighter - but they're so light that this method doesnt actually net more energy - because force is a function of mass and acceleration (essentially speed)...

You want to mod the GUN to output more air to push the round harder - easiest method is to add/replace the spring with a bigger one - they mostly all operate on the same principle - a spring loaded chamber is cocked then the trigger releases the energy in the spring pushing a piston into a cylinder.  The air in the cylinder shoots the dart - more spring = more air pressure.

If you want more force, you can add mass to the darts also - it will go slower (same overall energy) but more penetrating power.  Add a few pennies to the suction cup of the dart with some electrical tape and see what happens.  DO NOT SHOOT WEIGHTED ROUNDS AT PEOPLE/ANIMALS/EXPENSIVE THINGS.  

 a few pennies is way too much. they just fall out of the gun. Search for an instructable for it.
