You can also remove the black plastic ramps leading up to the flywheels. They are located in the flywheel casing, right at the dart entrance. I did this earlier today, and it helped with jamming.

Make sure that the flywheels are fully revved up before you try firing the darts. That will probably help. I got the 2 in 1 a few days ago, and it does have a tendency to jam...which I partly fixed by removing that pesky rubber dart-cleaner in front of the flywheels.

In Topic: Airsoft to Nerf?

The diameter tolerances are listed as 0.020", about a tenth of the entire diameter of the foam. I'm not convinced that those tolerances are tight enough for a consistent fit in the barrel. And besides, how are you going to weight these darts? Put a little airsoft pellet on the tip? Then why not just shoot airsoft pellets?


I plan on running the foam thru a section of heated airsoft barrel, as the foam is heated it shrinks to exactly the diameter of the barrel.
The darts will be weighted with 1/16" steel balls from McMaster, and the foam will be melted into a dome over the steel balls.

The point of this gun is to have a really cool, SAFE, replica revolver that can be used at an indoor Nerf war.

Is it just me, or are neither of the links working?

As far as Airsoft to Nerf conversions, I'm sure it's possible.

But for $50 you can make some wicked homemade internals that would most likely perform much better than the airsoft gun.

I've seen a few Paintball to Nerf conversions, but never an Airsoft one. You should undertake this project, if for nothing more than knowledge gained.

What you say is true, however, I would build this for the sake of aesthetics.


Airsoft guns are about an order of magnitude less powerful than a homemade nerf gun - pellets are about a 1/10th of the weight of nerf darts, and are propelled to about the same velocities as high-end homemade nerf blasters (about 300fps). Beyond that, the power systems are optimized around a projectile with 1/5th the cross-sectional area of a standard dart. Add the high price of even inexpensive airsoft guns, and you have yourself some hilariously cost-inefficient blasters. Maybe you'll do well against the Super Soaker conversion blasters.

Well, you wouldn't be firing standard darts, instead you would load the gun with mini darts made from the 1/4" foam from Mcmaster. Therefore, the darts would only weigh 3 or 4 times as much as an airsoft pellet, allowing the gun to fire them with relatively adequate power. Again the main purpose of this conversion would be for the "cool" factor.
