Introduction: How to Remove ALL ARs in Your Nerf Vulcan

Hey Guys! Yesterday I bought a Nerf Vulcan and Raider (used) for $20! When I shot the Vulcan it would only fire 25-35 feet and I thought 'I wish this would go further' so then I decided to mod it! I looked at Zinventor's and NickBurp's modification ibles and it was a little confusing. So I decided to show you guys how to do it! I also put in how to turn off the safety because when the Vulcan jams it's really annoying to un-jam it since the safety is there. Credit to Zinventor and NickBurp! Also please visit my website at!

I did this and my gun won't shoot at all on full or on semi. I think it has something to do with the AR sealing the chamber. Got any ideas?

bmueller3 (author)mnieto22011-10-05

Yes actualy the piece that grabs the belt, the white pice may be in upsidedown. u need to take off the plunger cover and flip it and reinstall it that should do it keep trying

mnieto2 (author)mnieto22011-07-06

should I put the AR back in?

Damein (author)2011-02-11

removed my master air restricter inside the gun by drilling it out due to it being glued shut, however my gun dosent seem to fire after I put it all together, its very odd and fires only some of the time. Is there any way to fix up this problem, i dont know if the drilling did anything but I got as close as the restricter's size that i had so i dont think it would be that. But please help me out, im modding the gun to look awesome for this convention im going to :]

Hmm, so it will only sometimes fire when doing Manual too? Did you check if the plunger juts out to seal around the chain? If it's only sometimes firing on Manual, try pulling the Priming handle back all the way. If the problem's on auto then try (note: I never tried the following): Washing out the plunger to get rid of scraps of plastic, Make sure that the plunger can jut out all the way, Replace batteries, Try pushing the dart all the way into the chain or try to loosen the dart and see if that makes a difference. I honestly have no idea. Anyway, what convention are you going to?

Damein (author)Pizzapie5002011-02-15

I havent tried auto fire yet, never had the batteries. But i pull back the manual lever to load the gun and it sometimes fires, its not that im not getting enough airflow im getting a lot. I think its just that all of the air isnt directed toward the dart at times. What do you mean by plunger (id need a pic or a time of the video above to look at it so i can follow what you said. :]

Im going to Anime Central in Illinois and i live in Michigan xD

Pizzapie500 (author)Damein2011-02-15

That's really weird. So does the white piece jut out and seals the dart chain when you pull the priming handle back?

Damein (author)Pizzapie5002011-02-17

It does sometimes, i think that might be the problem, it dosent stay forward half the time, i have to pull the handle back very slow in order to shoot one dart, if i pull it back too fast it wont fire that dart.

Damein (author)Damein2011-02-22

Would you like me to post a video up on youtube of me pulling the lever back so you could try to figure out whats wrong and give you the link?

Pizzapie500 (author)Damein2011-02-23

If you'd like to, then sure! Maybe some other people on YouTube can figure it out. Also do you have a NerfHaven account? If so, you can ask the people on there. Some of the people on Nerfhaven have been modding for a long time so they might know the solution.

Sorry about the long wait, but ive been making my armor for the convention and now im looking at my bowgun again so here is the video of my gun:

Hope I explained everything you need to know.

Pizzapie500 (author)Damein2011-04-21

Try to loosen the screws a bit. I'm thinking the plastic is too tight around the orange piece so that it won't go all the way back.

OrenT (author)2010-12-10

Hey, does removing all the air restricters ruin the guns ability to shoot in auto mode? I remember reading this in some instructable. I wanna be able to use full auto, but I'd also like to shoot further...

Pizzapie500 (author)OrenT2010-12-11

I'm not sure. It worked for me, but I've heard that it doesn't work for some people.

exexema (author)2010-11-09

for some reason that i dont know my gun now will not shoot anything after i did this mod??? can sombody help me???? please??

Pizzapie500 (author)exexema2010-11-09

What's the problem? Does it work auto? Does it work Manual? Is the plunger stuck? Is air coming out the plunger?

exexema (author)Pizzapie5002010-11-09

the belt will feed perfect on manual and auto the plunger isnt stuck but only a little air comes out

ikeike40 (author)2010-06-17

if you have a vulcan look at what it says on the orange part that flips open on the top lol

blakeyboii (author)ikeike402010-06-20

we r not listening To that 1 lol

ikeike40 (author)2010-06-16

how does the ar in the bipod affect the shooting?

Pizzapie500 (author)ikeike402010-06-16

It doesn't. It just removes that annoying clicking sound.

I just sprayed my vulcan with my favorite coating.  Automotive vinyl & plastic dye.  Most automotive parts stores carry it as do some hardware stores.  Typical colours are black matte, black gloss, red, grey, various shades of brown and a somewhat metallic looking silver.  I'm dubious of the silver as the whole point behind this paint, is that its not paint, its a dye.  It has plasticizers in it which actually soften the plastic and allow the dye to seep into the plastic.  It is then very scratch resistant.  The silver pigments should just float on the surface.  Even if you were to use the dye as a base coat, with accent paint over top it would increase the durability.   Being a dye, it does not fill like paint kinda does.  So detail that is lost when painted shines through, like it was popped out of a mold.   (BONUS USAGE) We even used this on aluminum scaffolding legs supporting a piece in a museum.  It is scuffed regularly by peoples feet, 2 years later it has not worn off.

nice mod dude but paint it also did you ever here of the modder Uin13 this dude is on youtube and he did a beast mod to his vulcan man this mod looks cool he took the ordanary barrel off of the gun and put 8 PETG barrels on it and it looks beast. also how far does the gun hit now???????????????????????????????????????????????????

seabananers (author)MAVREV132010-05-01

uin is awsome he inspired me to make paper guns

Pizzapie500 (author)MAVREV132010-03-28

Thanks! I was going to paint it and show everyone how to,but I couldn't find the right paint. Also I saw Uin13, he's cool! Btw I haven't got around to measure how far it shoots, but I can tell you, it shoots a lot further. At least 5-15 feet

Pizzapie500 (author)Pizzapie5002010-03-28

I meant 5-15 feet further.

MAVREV13 (author)Pizzapie5002010-03-28

thats good range for a vulcan.
also if you do paint it comment on my page and include a pic of it and if you dont mind check out my mods and comment and rate and speekin of mods do you have any new mods that you will be showing ????????????????

Pizzapie500 (author)MAVREV132010-03-29

Well, I first have to find some paint like what Uin13 uses. So yeah, don't expect that coming any soon. I am going to mod some more, like a raider, nite finder, and secret pocket strike. I will be posting these, but I have a Vista and it doesn't allow me to upload videos to youtube (I only make how-to videos). Btw what kind of paint did you use for painting your Maverick?

MAVREV13 (author)Pizzapie5002010-03-29
