    So I was walking around with nothing to do yesterday so I decided to clean up some of the shelves at work and came across a container that would have roughly 20 000 snap caps in it

    They are all different colours like metallic silver, metallic bronze, brown and other assorted colours. Then much to my suprise, there was a bag of 1000 5/32 nuts which is the same size as the ones that i have been using for weights in my custom darts.

    Now for some reason I'm starting to think my bosses must have been nerfers at some point.

    If only I could make darts properly....

    Haha! Awesome. Get us a picture of them XD. Making darts are easy with snap caps. Making hot glue domes are hard -_-.

    If some one can make darts that don't jam in my clip-feds, then I can supply ample caps

    haha - what a Score!!

    That would be an awesome find!!

    Just practice mate, you'll get it sorted eventually. You should check inf0rm3r's video on making darts. You might pick up a few tricks.

    Cheers,

    It might have something to do with me using streamlines to make snap caps as well. the dart its self is about the same diameter as the snap cap so every time I reload the breech has one in it and on the way through it catches the snap cap on the next dart

    Just because you have AR's in your gun doesn't mean you can't use blue foam. Blue foam is usable in both UNMODDED and MODDED blasters.

    Does the blue foam have a hollow centre?

    Well looks like I'll have to get some foam. The snap caps I have tried to make have lined up on top of the dart perfectly but they always seem to jam up in the breech for some reason. I might have to experiment with them.

    I don't think a shortage of snap caps will be a problem
