Really getting into the Nerf stuff and transformed my airsoft bullpup into a single shot muzzle load pistol by turning the grip and trigger around, barrel is a piece of 1" round nylon that I drilled to take the Nerf dart, these are actually X shot darts which work much better as they have like a raised seal section on the tip which makes an airtight seal.
Needs a trigger guard and some dart storage, and maybe that folding stock :idea:

Very nice work! I love the "meccano" look of your builds

Back in the day, we used to do that to bike parts. "Drillium", it was called.

I missed this thread. That's cool looking. Does it work pretty well?

In the house I can shoot about 30' and the dart hardly drops in flight, I need a Chrono really.

Final version with onboard storage, barrel cut down and moved to end of piston, spring cocking from the rear, fires half length Xshot darts at 100fps, much fun indoors :D
