Finally got my hands on a fairly stock Bow N' Arrow, decided to give it a go.


So here it is (handle was broken off, but I didn't care)

Go ahead and yank the black arrow holder off the top and open this beast up

Posted Image

This things plunger tube is ENORMOUS
Posted Image

Go ahead and cut off the tip of the stock barrel

Posted Image

Take a 12 inch piece of PETG, cut two slits in the back, and put wire in those slits so your darts will not be sucked into the plunger tube.

Wrap it up on the correct spots with etape and cover it in goop and slide it into the stock barrel, not going to far mind you

etape the plunger head
Posted Image


Up next is optional, minimization
Posted Image

Posted Image


Slap it all back together and you've got this monster
Posted Image


slap on a mega bungee

Ranges:
Without bungee - I didn't really bother. The seal on my BnA is so tight that it hinders the range. If you leave the seal sorta loose, I would assume the ranges were about 60-70ft

With 1 mega bungee - 85-110ft
It's an awkward gun to shoot, it'll take some getting use to, and I plan on wrapping the handle in grip tape or etape for some comfort and make it a bit easier to aim correctly. With practice, this thing would be a deadly primary.

Nice job. I like the minimized look, but I think it looks cooler not minimized.
It looks kinda hard to pull back.
Is it accurate? Does it vacuume load?

I like it, but it seems it would be obnoxious to hold back until you should. Is this the kind of thing where you'd put the dart in the tip of the barrel, and then only draw the bow if you are about to shoot?

Good job. The minimization was definitely a good idea. Could be good for long range shots at the other team since it probably doesn't have the best RoF. When was the bow'n arrow released by nerf. I know it's old.

It is suction loaded.

If I have a batch of darts in my hand, and I can usually get 5 down range in under 10 seconds

I'd say the rate of fire is actually very high.
