I decided to cut of the dart holders and glue on some velcro that way i can hold a bunch of DT darts and reload really easy
at most my new nf can hold 16 dart including one in the barrell

I like your mod, and your velcro dart holder. The only problem is that I don't think it will actualy be strong enough to hold the darts in an actual game. Your going to be running around, and some of they might fall off, plus that would make it almost only be able to be used as a primary, since you couldent put that in your pocket.

Nice idea, I don't know if it will work, but you can build off it and make sometihng that will hold your darts better. Good job anyways!

I tried shaking it around a little and they seemed to stay on real good

my other idea was to get some pvc that is a little larger then the tip of a dart and mount a few of them to a gun or holster and glue some velcro on the inside of the tubes
ill try to do a prototype or a drawing

the thicker barrel still shoots micros
it is a marker tube wrapped in hockey tape just slid into some thick walled pvc
looks pretty cool but no real purpose.

I use DT darts too, and I like to make belt across my chest and it has a couple small pvc pipes with a velcro cover over it. That way all you need to do is stick the dart through the hole until it hits and sticks to the velcro. This way, its very sturdy, then when you need a bullet, just pull it right out of the pipe, this way you can get bullets fast and easy without losing any. Only downside is that this belt gives me less mobility and versatility, (I think thats how its spelled). I like to jump around in wars, so this thing might just fly-off. However, it has served me well!

I suppose that's a good idea if you use the NF as a primary. It wouldn't make a good sidearm though, as the darts on the bottom would be quite cumbersome. And then you couldn't make a holster for it either. I'd rather stick with cargo pockets for my darts, but if it works for you, that's cool.

Aside from that opinion, you look like you have a very cleanly modded NF. Nice work.

Pretty cool design there for your prototype, however, the free dart was more easily accesible. other than that, nice job.

Hey restrictor, thats exactly the same thing I was talking about, but mine was secured onto a belt, instead of cardboard (I think) and I used way too much velcro. Yours is much simpler, saves materials, and infact more versatile. Great job!

[B] Nice Design. I like the barrel does it help at all or is it for looks. And also what size PVC did you use. I just got done Finishing my Titan mod and im sure you should look at that. :w00t:

Nice idea.

Try making these. They'll probably stay on better, they're lighter than the storebought tag darts.
