In Topic: Dartsmithing Tips Archive

Fellow Nerfers,

I did not want to start another topic about a very simple dartsmithing tip I came across. I'm sorry if anyone has already posted about this, I did read the first 4 pages of dart tips before posting this.

Tip: How to know if your darts are equally balanced

Meaning, this will basically tell you if your weight to length ratio of your dart is balanced. It will not tell you if it will work for your gun or every gun. It simply is a method to determine if the length of your stefan is balanced with the amount of weight you are putting in.

Items needed: Custom made darts, an adequate sized bowl, water

1) Fill the bowl with about 1.5 inches of water

2) Depending on the size of your bowl, place a few darts into the bowl of water

3) Your darts will either flost (almost) perfectly vertical, float vertically at a slant, or the worst case... sink

4) If your darts float perfectly vertical then they are balanced, good job (You can skip the rest of the steps, your done :P )

5) If your darts float but at an angle, the weight of your dart is off, Either your BB/fishing splitshot/etc. is not centered correctly or your hot glue did not cool/dry/harden/etc. equally acros the top of your dart. The hotglue may have also been too hot and melted the inner sides of your dart. In this case that dart will sprial out of control from higher powered Nerf(and spin-off's) guns such as the Titan, BBB, At2k, At3k, LBB, BBBB, etc.

What you can do if your darts are messed up: 1) Scrap the FBR and make little tiny shotgun like darts from them. 2) Salvage the BB 3) Re-melt the glue and reset the BB or fix the hot glue as it re-hardens


In Topic: Doubleshot Mod Write-up

Renegade, I'm liking this DS mod. Makes me wish I didn't destroy my DS or try to integrate an AT2K into it. So you didn't change any of the plunger system or internals at all? When I opened my DS I noticed that one plunger sucks horribly more than the other. The reason being because when you pull the trigger it can shoot one or both of the darts. When you only fire one dart, the one still remaining in the gun sucks due to the way the spring mech works. After modding your DS, do you notice a difference in range when only firing one dart versus firing two?

In Topic: Bbb Breach Barrell Dilema- Help Is Appreciated

I ended up scrapping the whole breech because of the brass tubing I found lying around not being the exact size it needs to be. I have it lying with my nerf guns to remind me and maybe one day I'll make a better one for my BBB. I just singled it again with a crayola. I was hoping I could do something like adding paper inside my breech to give a better seal and what not, but eh screw it. Thanks guys for the input

In Topic: Brass Soldering

I am currently using quite a bit of brass sheeting I found in a very long roll in my garage. I've been using duct tape to hold the brass together but I will try soldering it together instead. I'll let you know how it goes and what methods I try. My first few thoughts are 1) I have a blow torch, 2) I have welding tools, and 3) duct tape still holds brass and brass together...

I'm looking at buying one of these... perhaps. I'm trying to think of whether or not buying all those green balls is gonna be worth it
