Summary

Awesome dart holder that will give you the edge in any nerfwar. Darts are kept tight and are easily removed when needed. The dart holder is attached tightly to the tactical rail but slides off easily if you change guns.

The holder comes in 3 different models, either for 6, 8 or 10 darts, depending on how much ammo you need :). Please be aware that the 8- or 10-dart version does not fit on every gun, as the tactical rail on that gun might be to small or harder to reach. The 6-Dart holder always works, check images to see what holder I used on my collection.

Also, you will need 4 screws to make it happen. Ideally, you would want to use M2.6x8mm Phillips Drive Flat Head Self-Tap Electronic Screws.
If screws are not exactly your strong suit and there is no handyman nearby, I recommend using really, really small and short screws. Depending on where you live, you can use screws from your computer, you know, the ones holding your hard drive and your mainboard in place. The holder is pretty forgiving if your screws are slightly too small or big, so search your house.

Every holder has a little arrow thingy next to one side (where the screws are) This is the side that goes front first on the holder. Okay then, go and impress your friends

Instructions

You will have to print the body and the clips file once each. A 6-dart body will only fit with a 6-dart clips file, so make sure you have the right ones.

Worked great! Goes perfectly on my Sledgefire.

Imma take the screws from my motherboard ;)

You should make it customizable.

To have it do what?

Another thought I just had is using thumb screws to make it a quick swap between body sizes/flashlight holder/whatever. The ones used in computer cases are really common (and can be found for cheaper than these, but you get the idea): http://amzn.com/B009JI2KQ6

Yes you are right. Only minor issue is that the most common screws found in computer cases are M3 and the holes in my design are for M2.6 screws. But if you print the holder you see that you don't have to touch the screws ever again once assembled. The holder as a whole slides on and off the tactical rail and you just mount it on the blaster you want to use :)

Nice system, and excellent job with the photos. Have you considered using brass threaded heat inserts for the screws? Might make them last longer over self threading screws. http://www.mcmaster.com/#catalog/121/3303/=w8hkx3 . You just need to have a soldering iron and the special tip they sell (or use a clean iron tip). Have you also considered making the rail clip universal so you can swap out the different sizes of dart holders? Could then use that clip with other accessories like a flashlight holder. Again, nicely done.
