Lamp I understand what your saying, and to people who cant visualize it, take a magazine, load two halfdarts in it end to end, put it in a flywheel blaster, and fire it. Take the clip out, and notice where the other half dart is, now imagine an entire magazine like that, that feeds sorta like the Artemis


Yes, Ive understood that from the start. I linked a mag that is like that, but flip-loaded so you wouldnt have a dart at the end you couldnt fire. Alternatively, just accept that the last dart in the mag wont fire. The mags will need to be built/printed though, and finding springs has been the prime difficulty in doing that historically.

What lamp was saying to remedy that problem is put a plug the length of a half dart in the bottom that’s spring loaded, so that you could push that last dart

The mag doesn’t necessarily have to be printed, you can just take apart a standard nerf magazine and cut the follower in half, cut the magazine spring in half, and re-wind the springs,and add the plug piece. then you would have a half-dart magazine with nearly double capacity in the same size, only downside is that it only works with flywheel blasters that have been modded to work with it, becuase you need a longer stroke for the dart pusher, those blasters, however, would still be compatible with standard length darts

Printing would be the easiest method, but sure there are people who have successfully bisected existing clips.

...cut the magazine spring in half, and re-wind the springs...

 

You've never worked with spring steel, have you?  You can't just unwind and rewind a spring.  It isn't feasible, and making a new spring from virgin wire would be easier, but still a pain in the ass.  I've wound a couple normal spiral springs from thin music wire, but it is really easy to screw up.

I have actually, but not at the diameter required for magazine springs, I have wound my own trigger springs before becuase I didn’t have any that would fit and I didn’t want to destroy the trigger for something that probably wouldn’t work, so I re wound another spring I had lying around. It was tiny diameter though, and i ended up just buying another one because the trigger jammed. It was a pain in the ass, yes, but I assumed it would be posible to up-size it to rewind springs with a larger diameter. I gues I thought wrong:)
