This guy said that all you have to do is:
"step 3:Converting Water Guns to Nerf.
This is SIMPLE. Just strap on a barrel to where the water flows from. This is probably the easiest thing to do, and the most effective.

My water guns shoots a good 150' feet. Its absoultly scary to be honest. These aren't your old nerf gun, this thing will hurt. Alot."

Is this true?
If so any type of water gun I need like a pump gun or something?

If you are going to convert, use an air pressure gun, such as a Max-D or an XP. Don't use a piston gun as they are too weak and don't use a CPS because they are too monetarily valuable. Select a gun and a mark of that gun, if applicable, that you know you can open easily. Why waste effort opening a gun with glued pump caps, glued outer nozzle covers, and the such? Marks are well documented, but you won't find that information here. You'll also want to disable the pressure release valve, which is not quite the same as plugging a typical nerf one. Water gun PRV's generate a hell of a lot more pressure, meaning you can't get away with anything weaker than epoxy. Even with good epoxy, it may be blasted out multiple times. The PRV might also not be immediately obvious, as all water guns have two and their sizes/shapes vary. Cut the wrong one and you're done.

A word of caution: not every water gun has been converted, so if you don't work with their internals regularly, I'd suggest sticking to a gun and a mark of that gun that has already been converted by someone. Either that or doing some research about particulars. There are certain guns which may be converted without even opening them, while there are others which really aren't worth the effort [the CPS 4100 mk2, 2100 mk2, 1200 mk2 and 4, XP 310 mk2,and all Max-D mk1's come to mind].

I will add the "black widow" to that list. You can't get a fast enough release or a highenough pressure by sealing the rigid tank and pugging the valves. Trust me I have tried.

I mod nerf guns so they look good. So leave my scopes, doodads, and trinkets alone I like them. I don't mind the weight and I started out that way on toy guns and its not going to change.

I bought a Flash Flood and i strapped a barrel onto the flood part and i get like 75'. Only problem is it takes hell a patience to get the dam rings off the nozzle like on an at2k so you can plug the pump. Thats probably why i dont like mine :D .

I'm pretty sure that most Super Soakers don't have Nerf-style over pressure valve on their pumps.

EDIT: Here's a link showing how to "freeze the check valve."
