Step 5: Reassembling the gun

The procedure of reassembling the gun is the exact reverse of disassemling it.

Replace the chamber release button and place the spring back ontop of it

 Screw back in the big rotating mechanism followed by the trigger (The trigger spring connects onto the nearest peg within the shell and the other end will latch onto a hook on the trigger. This was a problem for me but eventually i figured it out)

Replace the spring at the top, place the catch back into place  (be mindful of the spring) then insert the plunger with spring connected back into the catch

Add the chamber and barrel back into place  

Find the half of the cocking mechanism that has a metal pin on it and place it so that it is through the internal spring at the top but remains outside the shell.

Screw the top half of the body back together and match up the two halves of the cocking mechanism, replace the spring loaded tactical rail attachment. screw together


Hi can i paint my nerf with acrylic paint??
This was really helpful! Thanks for the straightforward guide :)
No problem I'm glad you enjoyed it :D
I like this, will be trying it later. Like you I am in the UK, technically it is illegal to make anything that could be mistaken for a real gun (I'm a lawyer and just got a colleague of mine to check), but I wouldn't be too concerned as you don't take it outside. <br> <br>Anyway, I am thinking of a similar colour scheme to yours but perhaps with some drybrushing on the silver to make it look dirtier.
nice i painted mine in the same colour scheme but with a few bits of green in the indented lines around the release button and where the slide is <br>
You know it's illegal to paint the tip of a nerf gun black, right?
yes, of course. im going to go rob a bank with this. i will get &quot;did you get that of hellboy or something?&quot;
The rules are different in the UK
thanks now my maverick, which i modded to shoot 3 times as far now looks awsome, except i couldnt put it back together, have to try again. thanx though<br>
no problem im glad you enojyed the instructable
black and gold looks awsome if ya wanna try it<br>
just a little note, add some orange, you do not want to go outside with it and get shot because someone thinks its real
Hi thanks for the advice but I live in te UK and I don't take the gun anywhere outside my property
Good job, I really like the worn look you gave it. <br>Instead of using Plastic Primer, you can also use spray paint made for plastic (Krylon and Rustoleum both have them, though there are very few colors to choose from). Also I was told that it is better to add a layer of clear coat/varnish to seal your paint job (especially if you want to use acrylic paint for detailing).
Thank you for the advice I really appreciate the feedback!
