I will get this straight out there: I am brand new to Nerf products after a hiatus of about 20 years. Getting back into it because of my two children. So technically, a "Nerf Dad".
I was wondering if anyone knows of any companies out there that modifies Nerf Guns for you at a premium? I had read that Coop772 ("Frank") had a website that use to sell some, but he closed down in October of this year. My wish is to find somewhere that sells whole guns (i.e. Rapdistrike) already to go. If so, how much would these things run?
My search via Google revealed nothing, so I am left to even wonder if any exist. Maybe there are liabilities involved? Which is hard for me to imagine, given that I am heavy in the firearm competitions realm and since those things kill, how could this steer companies away from modifying a foam dart blaster?
Any thoughts would be helpful. As usual, be gentle since I am so new.
I am not aware of any companies that do the work for you, but Orange Mod Works (et al) will send you parts that make the job easy. I doubt it is liability as much as it is lack of market. It's easy enough to do, and the time I'd have to put into doing it for you would make it not worthwhile for you or me.
Ed: While researching OMW's prices, I see that they offer a limited selection of modded blasters for $50-$100 each. So... Just buy from them.
If you want to mod something they don't make a kit for, the real basic things to do are:
*Add a spring
*Precompress the existing spring
Any of those should be pretty easy individually if you can open a blaster without issue. Removing the air restrictions is one that is usually harder, but isn't really necessary unless you're planning to use homemade darts.
Individuals on this site might be enticed to do the work on the trading forum once you're allowed to post there. As an aside, *I* might be enticed (once you can post in the trading forum; it's against forum rules to skirt that) to do the work depending on what you want done and what you're offering per blaster.
