Many people in our club have modded or built NERF blasters; recommend you talk to some of these people if you have any questions. (i.e. post on the Facebook group or email people)
Modding your NERF blaster
- Electronic blasters: batteries wiring Rapidstrike motor-swap (Solarbotics RM2 or Blade 180/Mabuchi FK180SH)
- Springers: remove AR, grease, better spring, etc. google stuff
Building a NERF blaster
- Blowguns (PVC pipe)
- Nerf pistols...google search them (there's a lot)
- PumpSNAP (essentially SNAPbow with pump action)
The cpvc plunger rod may break in the PumpSNAP (you can replace it with an aluminum rod, but you will need to mill the slot).
- Anything with bolt-action...link
- Flywheels - there aren't very many of these homemade. probably easier to just modify one.
- Wye hopper (This will not work with stock darts.)
- This hopper will work with stock darts.
