Because Im a complete dork and I enjoy shooting people in the office. I decided to fabricate a Steampunk inspired Nerf gun to make it more fun for me. I know I am not the first to do this and I was definitely inspired by the many submissions online. Using old parts from my kids toys I was able to create some slight modifications to the already cool design of the Maverick Nerf gun. I did have some help from my son. This will be a fun modification to my hyjinks at work and hopefully this will inspire the creative geek in you as well to join the many who have tried.
