Sure, everyone can throw their hat, but who in your class can launch their tassel 30’ out of a nerf gun?

This is a very simple barrel attachment.

Supplies:
- PVC large enough to hold your tassel and charm (about 1” for me)
- 2 ¼” Foam weather-stripping (non-sticking)
- PVC coupler to attach it to your gun

Cut your PVC to about 6-8”. It doesn’t have to be perfect, but if it’s too large the tassel wont make it out of the barrel.

Cut the foam down to one 4” section and one 2” section.

Stuff the 4” section tightly down into the bottom of the barrel using a ram rod. Load in the tassel, then stuff 2” foam on top to seal it. Attach it to the coupler and fire ze missile!

Ranges are about 20-40’ @ 60 psi (~30 pumps) (Titan). The range is fairly volatile, due to the nature of the projectile.

I pre-made 10 barrels and took them to school pre-loaded with the 4” foam. Told people to load their tassel in and I’d stuff the 2” on top. I also put a little Vaseline on the inside of the coupler, so I could easily swap out the barrels like shells.

Simple, fun, and effective. :lol:

Nice. Just make sure you don't use that Vaseline as lubrication for your O-rings or other rubber stuff. Check the safe lubricants thread (in the General Nerf section) for more information in that subject.

I love the Titan's versatility.

Actually, my school colors are red/black/white, so the Titan's original paintjob is perfect :P

Nice. Just make sure you don't use that Vaseline as lubrication for your O-rings or other rubber stuff. Check the safe lubricants thread (in the General Nerf section) for more information in that subject.


The coupler is large enough that the Vaseline wont get down inside unless you put way too much in.

Ace. 1/8" male guage + 1/8" female/female elbow + 1/8" male to 1/4" barb.
