DIY NERF Rifle

at 5:37 am. Filed under DIY Hacks, Funny Hacks

This is an interesting NERF Gun. Simple to make and looks like lots of fun!

“The rifle is made almost entirely out of PVC pipe. The exception is the sprinkler valve (which is has a PVC mating fixture) the pump, and the electronics, which are just some bits of wire, a few batteries and a switch. It is pressurized by a bike tire pump, which is mounted permanently to the gun, and attached to the tank with an automotive tire valve.

The PVC parts I used were:

* A length of 1″ PVC (maybe 2 feet)
* A length of 1/2″ PVC (several feet, used for the barrel)
* 2 1″ PVC Tee Junctions
* A 1″ x 2″ non-threaded PVC bushing
* A 2″ x 3″ Reducer
* A length of 3″ PVC (for the tank, anywhere from 8-18″)
* A 1″ PVC end cap. This cap must be FLAT on the inside, not curved as some caps are.”
