Hi all,

I've been modifying for well over a year now but since I've started, I've not been able to find a) an elecrtic screwdriver/drill bit that is long enough and small enough to fit into the screw reccesses or B) a cheap battery operated screwdriver w/a very small head. Presently, I am trying to machinr my own bit w/a Dremel but that is going poorly whcich has forced me to go back to truty and tiresome handhled screwdriver.


Any advice, opinions, or knowledge of what to get and where to get it would be greatly appreciated.

Probably easiest to email me: noahz9@verizon.net

Why dont you just take a hacksaw/dremel to a cheap screwdriver, cut off the handle and use it as a bit?

And tell us again why you need a battery powered screw driver for a nerf gun?

Why do you need an electric screwdriver for Nerf guns?

I've always done just fine with a regular one.

I like fallinouttadabox's idea. Also, I think it's safer to use a manual screwdriver because an electric screwdriver will carve a screw quite fast. You also have less control when using an electric screwdriver.

Stanley -FatMax line #0 and #1 will remove every screw used in nerf guns. And the shaft is a perfect fit in even the tightest of holes.
(yes you may sig that, but link it properly)

If your too lazy to unscrew a gun yourself you have no business modding.
However if you get Dremel screwdriver tips (like the ones that come with the Dremel lithum ion powered driver) they will work on any standard powered screwdriver and be slim enough to fit MOST blasters.

Forgive my spelling and grammar. I post from my cell phone a lot. Sometimes when I'm on the can at work.

I highly don't recommend using a power drill to remove the screws becasue you might strip the screws very easily.
