Lets start of with something smaller, The Nerf Maverick. I chose a battle- damaged black and silver but feel free to use any colour that suits you. Lets Get Started!
Step 1: Gathering Equipment
A Nerf Maverick (obviously)
A Phillips Head Screwdriver
A Can of Plastic Primer
A Can of Black Paint
A Can of Silver Paint
Step 2: Disassembling the gun
First use your Phillips Head Screwdriver to remove the 3 screws located in the cocking mechanism (it will split into 2 pieces with a spring loaded orange piece used in the tactical rail)
Next Carefully remove the first side of the gun. Remember to do this gently or the plastic will crack, this will leave you with the internal pieces exposed.
Gently lift out the 6 dart chamber and the barrel piece. set these aside for painting.
Remove the inverted plunger and spring (the orange tube at the top with a spring on it) then remove the catch (the hollow square that held the inverted plunger)
Finally remove the internal screws and set aside, then remove the spring at the top, the trigger and the rotating mechanism near the chamber. Underneath this is the chamber release button and a spring, remove those as well. KEEP EVERY SCREW AND SPRING IN A SAFE PLACE AND DO NOT LOOSE THEM
Step 3: Preparing and Painting
Paint an thin even coat of plastic primer on the pieces that you want to paint waiting 20-25 minutes between each coat ( i used 2 coats per piece)
Then repeat but with the colour of your choice (i painted the paint body of the gun with 2 coats of black,the chamber and cocking mechanism i painted with 2 coats of silver paint)
LEAVE ALL PIECES TO COMPLETELY DRY
