    DIY Aussie Homemade Mega Darts

    DIY Aussie Homemade Mega Darts

    As a vintage and rare nerf collector, I struggle to obtain Mega darts. This is the same case with many other collectors in Australia. However in this Tutorial you can create Mega Darts using Aussie Materials. Now there is no need to purchase and import Expensive Mega Darts from the states, with this method you can save your hard earned coin and make Mega Darts for a fraction of the cost.

    Materials Needed:

    - 15mm FBR (Obtained at Bunnings)
    - Straw
    - Hot Glue and Hot Glue Gun or any means of Adhesive
    - Dart Head Materials eg. Lg Stinger Caps
    - Weights if neccessary



    Method:

    1. Firstly, cut the 15mm FBR in lengths of approximately 8cm (Standard Mega Dart Length is 8cm, OD 15mm). If necessary, heat the FBR using a Hair Dryer or Washing Dryer to straighten the FBR.



    2. Now, Grab your straw and cut teeth into the straw using scissors. Proceed to turn the FBR Rod into a Tube by slowly and carely twisting the straw against the FBR. This is because of the dart peg and if you wish to leave your blaster completely stock. However if your blaster does not have any dart peg, you may skip this step. (Refer to pictures Below).



    3. Obtain desired dart heads and adhere to the FBR Tube by hot glue, 5min epoxy or any means of adhesive. In this case I used hot glue, Large Stinger Caps and previous mega dart suction heads. Also add weights if necessary.




    Mega Darts Complete!




    Range Test

    Ranges of the Stock Mega Darts and the Homemade Suction Mega Darts are almost identical.
    While the Stinger Mega Darts have a significant increase in range to stock Mega Darts, Up to 10m Increase.


    Thanks for looking!

    The 15mm FBR Rod comes in 10m lengths, if that is what you mean.

    Yeah, up to 10m increase from suctions to stingers, as I assume; aerodynamics and right weights, etc.

    Very nice. The idea with the straw really sets this mod above the rest. I've never been a fan of the old heated nail trick.

    I miss my SplitShot all the more now lol.
    Great idea this. Makes it almost feasable to have a vintage war.

    Fair go. It had stopped working, I tried to fix it, got distracted by minibikes for a few months and lost all the screws.
    Just to take the heat off me: My brother tossed his Power Clip(?) only a few months ago....
