This Modification will increase the Rate of fire of you Nerf Stampede.
I present to you, the RoF increase mod for the Nerf Stampede!
The main two reasons why you would do this to your Nerf stampede are because of the increased Rate of Fire and the drastic Weight Reduction.
The Stock stampede shoots around 3 darts per second but with this mod you can shoot nearly 4 darts per second.
The stock batteries of the Nerf stampede are six D cell Batteries. Just the batteries weigh 650 grams. With this modification I will be using 8 x AA batteries,
and these weigh 230 grams.
I really wanted a gun that would be great fun to use in Nerf wars and playing Nerf with my little brother at home,
and I thought that the increased Rate of Fire and weight reduction would accomplish this.
List of Tools/Materials:
- 8 x AA Batteries
- 8 x AA Battery pack/holder
- Small Philips Head Screw Driver
- Tin Snips (or a good pair of scissors)
- Soldering Iron
- Duct Tape or E-Tape
First you need to take the battery tray out of the Nerf Stampede.
Then you will need to unscrew the six screws on the bottom of the battery tray.
Lightly pull the battery tray apart (about 3 cm apart) and shake or somehow get those battery holder things out.
Cut off the two pieces of plastic that are sticking up in the middle of the battery tray with some tin snips or scissors.
Place your 8 x AA batteries into your battery pack/holder.
Solder your connector onto the positive and negative terminals on the stampede battery tray. Alternatively you could just solder your battery pack directly.
The spring like coil is the negative and the flat piece of metal is the positive.
Also note you are soldering this to the side of the battery tray that enters the Stampede first.
Connect the battery pack up and then add the necessary pieces of cardboard in order for you Battery pack to fit in nice and snug.
The only downside to this modification is that you would be regularly buying AA batteries. So I would recommend
getting some decent re-chargeable batteries to save you the time and money of buying new batteries every time your old ones run out.
