I had some old ping pong ball shooting guns from back in the day and noticed that they had great potential for nerf. So, I built a mini dart adapter insert ot of CPVC and film canisters that luckily fit snuggly in the original barrel.

Next I sanded down the back handle so that the reverse plunger could slide easily through it and added a few rubber band chains to it. I then made a simple clothes pin trigger and glued it in place on the handle. I added the metal eraser-holder thing to the spot on the plunger tube where the trigger slides and melted it into the plastic to reduce wear.

Simply pull the handle back,

and pull the trigger to release the plunger tube.

Complete:

The rate of fire is quite good, as long as the darts fit loosely enough to slide back into the barrel as the plunger is pulled back. Otherwise, a ramrod is required. I have no real ranges because it is soaking wet outside due to melting snow, but it punches holes in cereal boxes from twenty feet consistently.

That is awesome. It seems as if its a reverse plunger, am i correct? And your darts are very...intresting I might have to try the ones where you left foam at the top.

It is a reverse plunger, and I'd only recommend the copper darts if you're into slightly more painful nerfing. They're pretty heavy and they get pretty fast, but they are topped by foam at least.

I dont think they would hurt more than typical stefans. And how old is that? I didnt know they knew about reverse plungers "Back in the day" since nerf just recently started using them.

Somewhere around 2003-2005 I think. I'd imagine reverse plungers were in use prior to Nerf's adoption of them.

Go to goodwill, and find anything, and everything that will work as ammunition, whether it be cups, dolls, or the tiny mexican children.

The reason I made the dart barrel removable was to retain stock ability. It can still fire ping pong balls; it just can't use the back handle.
