The latest mod for NERF‘s Rival Nemesis Blaster comes from none other than Adam Savage. As part of the Tested series of videos that feature Savage working on one-day builds, the popular NERF blaster is normally only able to hold 100 rounds of NERF’s foam-ball (Rival) ammo. With some acrylic material mixed in with ingenuity, the stock magazine is retrofitted with a new reservoir that is now capable of holding 1000 rounds.
Not stopping at the newly-increased ammo capacity, Savage goes on to add a sight, bipod, and a completely new paint job. Watch the video above to see the step-by-step instructions for building the upgraded magazine from scratch, and be sure to check out the ending, where Adam goes through all 1,000 rounds in a target practice session with inflatable T-Rex’s.
