Nerf Stuff

This pic of the N Strike reminded me. My nephew (pictured below with the suppressor) showed me one of his Nerf pistols. It’s identical to one of the nerf guns my kids have. Except that when I fired it, it had a range about 6 times greater than ours and it shot in a straight line. Ours have substantial drop and you have to aim about 5 feet high to hit something 15 feet away. Not his, it zipped along.

He explains to me that he modded it. Turns out, you can replace the springs in it with springs you get at Lowe’s. The also come with a power restricting dampener, that he had removed. And he used duct tape to make the air chamber smaller.

I was so proud. A future gun nut. But I knew that already.

    Have him write up the mod plans. Other kids will want to mod theirs.

    Here is one that has been hooked up to a CO2 canister much like a paintball gun marker:

    Nevermind, now my decaffeinated brain is up to speed.

    I second Cargosquid’s request. My kids have a bunch of Nerf guns (and more coming for Christmas), and it’d be cool to mod them. To know what springs and such would be great.

    My nephew says check youtube.

    I’m sure the ATF will find a way to investigate this…

    Well, you know he’s -><- this close to having it fire live ammunition, then the full-auto mod is trivial. These things are dangerous!

    They sell fully automatic magazine-fed Nerf guns now. Living in MA, I’m considering getting one so I can have a collapsible stock and a pistol grip on the same rifle.

    ZK, there’s also a belt-fed automatic Nerf. At a previous office, Nerf wars were very common. Everyone got involved and escalation was quite common (if you’re outgunned, head to Toys-R-Us at lunchtime).
