Project Description

For my final project, I will build a spring powered dart blaster (aka nerf gun). It will be built primarily out of pvc plastic piping. A wooden rod with a spring and rubber washer will form a plunger that creates air pressure to launch the dart out of the barrel.

Motivation for Project

I enjoy playing nerf and modifying prebuilt nerf guns, and thought it would be a good project to build one from scratch.

Components

The main components and their primary materials are as follows:


Pressure chamber - pvc

Barrel - pvc

Plunger - wooden rod, spring, rubber washer

Handle - pvc

Trigger - clothespin, angle iron
