Nice job on the modifications. Good, high quality pics, too.

Just to make sure this is clear, for the time being at least, I will only be doing modifications to stock blasters, I do not plan to make any homemades anytime in the near future. The original question was referring strictly to use of modified darts in non-clipped, modified Nerf blasters. Just thought I should make sure that was clear.

I understand that slugs are a better alternative, but unfortunately, being a teenager, I only have about 60 dollars, and I am going to need that to buy more blasters. I was asking about this because I wanted to get higher performance in my pistols. For clipped blasters, I will be sticking to stock streamlines (another thing I need to buy; elite darts) for a while. Thanks for the advice, though,

EDIT: Azrael, I was replying to DartSlinger about the stefans. I will probably just try cutting some of my streamlines, since I am going to start converting to elites anyway, and see how much I like the results. I understand that the darts are stabilized by drag, so it makes sense it would be somewhat of a tradeoff, thanks for the advice, though.

I've had relative success with this strategy, but simply taking the stock heads off elite darts and capping off some FBR with it seems to work better, and they are slightly more durable. There is still a definite "terminal velocity" with the half-darts that is rather easy to attain. In addition, your fishtailing may become worse once you reach that point as darts are drag-stabilized, meaning they rely on that mass (or rather the friction it creates with the air) to keep the back of the dart at the rear of the flight path.

So it does work? Is there a specific length of foam you should cut off the end to achieve the best performance?
I'll have to make any other replies by editing this post, until tommorrow.

EDIT: oontrprzes, thanks for the info. Regarding WANO II, I am still just getting into Nerf modification. As far as blasters all I have are a stock longshot, recon, and stampede, a minimized crossfire with AR removal and spring replacement, a longstrike with AR removal and OMW Stage 1 Kit, and a raider which I am currently moding. I won't be going to any official Nerf Wars just yet.

What does the dart tooth look like? Sorry I am not familiar with all the parts of a blaster yet.

EDIT: Editing this post because of FNG post limit. Thanks nine, yeah, I was wondering what that part was for, it has a little spring you need to put on it, right.

EDIT 2: Thanks everyone, the gun clip feeds fine now, and I have gained some more knowledge about blaster internals along the way.
