I know that lots of people use Nerf guns as the base for a prop build. But I'm talking about actually making a gun from scratch and just using the nerf ammo in it.
This came from a project I've wanted to make for a while. An old west under lever rifle, 'The Gun That Won the West' sort of thing.
It definitely had to cock and actually cycle shells, but just cycling empty replica shells seems pointless and as a method of firing bb's it's a tad complicated.
So that's when I came up with using Nerf ammo. It's simply fired by air pressure and it's about the right size for that sort of loading and firing cycle.
The main question is, has anyone ever done this before, do you think it will be possible / relativly easy?
Another big inspiration is this guy who built a pump action grenade launcher from scratch. I am confident I can make the mechanism but will I be able to modify it for Nerf?
