Introduction: How to Mod a CS-6 Nerf Longshot

Picture of How to Mod a CS-6 Nerf Longshot

This is an instructable on how to do the following to your CS-6 Nerf Longshot:

~ Increase range by 25%
~ Increase power by 35%
~ Make a 14 nerf dart clip
~ Decrease weight to your gun
~ Make it cooler

This gun is currently a work in progress (V1), i'll post a youtube video with picture link when i'm done (V2) is harder to do.

Step 1: Eliminating Extra Weight

Picture of Eliminating Extra Weight

To eliminate the extra weight from your Nerf Longshot Gun, and to make it cooler, first you remove the Grey stock that comes with it by unscrewing 3 back screws. To remove the Bipod, you must open up the gun, 23 screws in all, and remove 4 internal screws on each side of the gun to remove the bipod.

Step 2: Nerf Clip Mod

Tired of endless nerf battles full of reloading and collecting darts, instead of the 6 bullet Nerf Dart clip provided to your by nerf, you can take two clips and make one super clip.

1. Unscrew both clips
2. Remove all the things inside the both clips
3. Using a saw, cut out on the first clip the section below where the line stops when the clip is inserted into the gun
4. Tape the two springs from the two clips togeather.
5. Break apart on the second clip the two pincers that hold the darts from being ejected
6. Put the Spring back into the second clip, and put the top of the spring on the Dart Automatic Ejecter plastic piece which is placed inside the first clip, so now they are stacked togeather.
7. Tape both of the clips with duct tape
8. Your clip is now twice as long, and should hold 14 foam darts

Step 3: Removing the Air Restrictiors

Removing the air restrictors takes around 30 min, but increase the range and power of your gun greatly.

1. Unscrew gun
2. Use a pair of flat edged screwdrivers to lift out cocking mechanism (Bolt Action)
3. Open up the two sides of the gun, ans set the side with no components aside
4. Remove the Spring and plunger, in the orange cylender( can be different in other guns )
5. Unscrew the cylender (two small screws)
6. Remove the spring in the cylender
7. Look inside the cylender, you should see a black circular knob with 3 prongs, now use a pair of wire cutters to snap off the 3 prongs
8. The knob will fall out, not tip the cylender the other way, and the air restrictors will fall out
9. Now on the end of the spring, glue 1 inch in diameter and 1/2 inch thick circles from any nerf bullet/ foam, and super glue them to the the end of the circular spring (there is a black cap)
10. This will protect the spring casing, as the increased air flow wears out the parts faster)
11. Let dry, and place spring back into cylender, screw and secure together, and snap it back into the frame the holds the cylender casing, and the trigger mechanism.
12. Screw everything back togeather
13. When you fire the gun, the gun will make a loug twaing sound, this is normal, this means there is increased air flow from the spring to the dart support casing, resulting is more power and range. Be sure not to dry fire too much, it wears out the cylender spring casing.

Sorry these arn't my photos my camrea doesn't support the resolution the show what happens, but these pictures are quite detailed. Also it won't let me delete the redundent picutres, I will look into it!!!

The first picture shows the gun open

The second shows the spring and plunger cylender and casing mechanism

The thrid shows the bottom of the air restrictor in the cylender

The fourth shows that gun with and without the air restrctor

The fifth shows the padding on the spring, however optional it really helps in preventing wear and tear to your gun

The sixth shows the actual air restrictor


Step 4: Extras

Well theres the end of this guide, it took about 2 hours to do this, but I could have done it in 30 min. This is my first mod, and I hope this helped from all those hard to understand guides on the web right now. Also, in the near future I will spray paint my gun, add a berral extender, metal bipod, acog sight from mw2, make another double clip, and much much more. I will update this guide with added steps.

alarson3 (author)2011-06-29

ibryant21 (author)alarson32017-04-13

Just figured you should know, 6x2=12.....also, never use tape, it will fail eventually.

This is really old, but I'm looking to convert all my 6 dart clips into these. What should I use instead of tape?

It's been 4 years since I looked at this instructable, and now...Wow. It's not even modding, it's just throwing pieces together.

Anyways, I haven't ever modified my clip, but I did give my Longshot a huge amount of power. As for something besides tape, I'd say literally any other adhesive. Glue, if it doesn't get in the way of things inside, you could also try JB Weld or Bondo, for a joint that would be stronger than the original plastic, or, if you're adventurous, attempt to fuse the clips without adhesives. Just use heat and melt them together.

Haha, yeah, I know what you mean. I just have a bunch of 6rnd clips lying around, and remembered that people were combining them into 12s and was looking for info about it.

Honestly though, if your literally suggesting I melt two clips together though, I don't see how that ISN'T modding :)

It's not a clip, it's a magazine.

Oh yeah, everything I suggested would be towards the realm of modding, but nothing in this instructable is modding, it's just...Taping.

You should just get an 18 dart magazine.

You can actually fit 7 darts, so 7x2=14.... put that in your calculator and calculate it

JamesTB13 (author)rgale2011-12-08

It's supposed to fit 6, although it can fit 7, yeah. But even in the instructable up there it says it holds 6, then that double that is 14. I've found that you almost have to cram the seventh in, so it's probably to go with the intended 6 anyways lol.

V1nz0rd (author)JamesTB132010-08-22

not if you use Gaffer tape...

JamesTB13 (author)V1nz0rd2010-08-23

ok, but what's Gaffer tape, and why won't it fail?

V1nz0rd (author)JamesTB132010-09-03

basically, it's superstrong tape that will hurt like hell if you put it on your arms. it tends to to stick for, like, forever. it's used a lot at concerts & stuff.

JamesTB13 (author)V1nz0rd2010-09-03

aahhh, makes sense. I have no idea what a gaffer does, but i know it's with sound and whatnot. But, i don't know, I'd still rather join things with things like hot glue, or the like.

Dino Lover 1102 (author)2016-10-14

how do you even get the cocking mechanism off? on mine the orange pieces are glued onto a metal rod set in a hole in the side of the gun.

projectR (author)2010-10-22

i cant get bolt off

uberasianmaster (author)projectR2011-11-21

my youtube is m16dernwarfare

jumpingcat (author)projectR2011-07-21

get a claw hammer and pry it off

Ben Mighall (author)2011-04-19

Dude you shouldn't use packing tape. It looks bad, falls off easily and doesn't hold well. Use epoxy; it works really good. If not, at least hot glue. Seeing tape on that gun makes my heart hurt.

UnknownMaster (author)2010-12-27

Use a flat headed screw driver to pry it off then

uberasianmaster (author)2010-12-03

i ended up using black tape over the clear tape, duct tape hasn't failed

uberasianmaster (author)2010-12-03

reported astropoke because modworks did not make this I did ovbously. You can use not just a wire cutter but maybe a knife or sissors :D

orgo the blue banana (author)2010-11-20

i dont have a wire cutter, is there anything else i could use?

~Z~ (author)2010-11-19

Give credit to modworks for this.

uberasianmaster (author)2010-10-23

what bolt are you talking about? This project took me 2 days putting it back togeather is very complecated if you lose one bolt or spring u fail. i am putting togeather a cod5, cod6, and cod4 instructable, my xbox360 gamer tag is tonberrylol.

Be sure to visit my website, in a few months i am going to redo the site to make it a forum instead

dantheman272 (author)2010-09-01

eman414 (author)2010-08-10

pizzamaniac777 (author)2010-07-24

XOIIO i have the same problem. anyone have any advice???

smallman98 (author)2010-06-24


XOIIO (author)2010-06-20

I put the bolt in and can't get it out. I am worried it will break. Any advice?

uberasianmaster (author)2010-05-07

well thinks for all the views over 1000 never expected that. Well unfortunatly, i completed the extra mods but not the paint job when it unexpectly broke, my friend did it. I have no money right now, so i am unable to purchase new darts or upgrades. However i am considering more instrucables on gaming, and electronics, so keep being updated. You can email me at Also i used to play rs 2 yrs ago but got boring dont want to wtffffff membership. Though, i do play arcanist maybe once a month, my user is tonberrylol.

billybenj (author)2010-04-04

nice mod, 4 stars, and hey do u play runescape? the name 'tonberrylol' sounds really familar from runescape, and i subscribed =P

MAVREV13 (author)2010-03-28

dude nice mod that is cool man im wondering are you going to beef up the stock and what kind of paint job are you going to do to your gun and when its done with painting it can you send a pic of it to me also here is my longshot it ranges 40-60 ft rarely it hits higher.

uberasianmaster (author)MAVREV132010-03-29

Well thinks, Today I added an ACOG sight, and added a plastic berral extender, a part of some other gun, but then my friend broke it, so now i'm using a pvc pipe as the berral, around 1 1/2 foot long, but its hard to do because the gun is damaged from my friend dropping it :(. The paint job i'm going to do is an all black scheme. The stock was going to be replaced with an airsoft stock, but I don't have money right now so most of the other add ons i'm going to do will take some time.

MAVREV13 (author)uberasianmaster2010-03-29
