This is a review of the Nerf Hammershot gun.
In case you guys have been living under a rock for a few decades, Nerf guns are replica firearms that fire foam darts.
They usually use a spring to drive air into the dart, which fires it; however some use a pair of high speed rotating wheels to grab the dart and hurl it out the end of the gun (fly wheels).
This is the Hammershot – it is a “springer” which is the standard community-made term for a normal spring-powered Nerf blaster (more on that later when I show the internals).
(NOTE: I have repainted it to look better, see here for an image 0f the original).
This gun is very good; its PROS and CONS are:
- One-handed prime
- Easy to mod
- Easy to paint
- Nice feel
- Plenty of Mod Kits available
- Low capacity (five shots)
- Somewhat hard to prime the hammer
As you can see, I can’t think of many cons, so it must be good!
Now I will show you what the internal mechanics look like:
It is very simple. I haven’t explained all the parts, but those are the main functions.
As a side note, the swirl painting I did on it used a borax and water solution, and Gloss enamel paint.
