1. my project leaves your gun still able to fire stock nerf darts or stephans.
2. my project has greater accuracy
3. I have taken this project the extra distance, the completed project sports a 3' barrel and has a muzzle velocity of aprox 200 fps.
NOTE my project DOES require that you disassemble and modify your gun. YOUR GUN WILL STILL WORK NORMALLY IF YOU ARE USING A PISTOL OF SOME SORT. I can't promise that this project is compatible with the nerf longshot or maverick, but if you have a nightsight, this should work well.
Step 1: Modding the gun
pic1, pull all the screws out
pic2, separate the two halves
pic3, loosen the air chamber restraint screw
pic4, pull out the flow resistor, barrel assembly and assorted bits in the end of the piston.
pic5, the part you need to mod
pic5, the completed mod (break off the spike.)
pic6, optional mod of the airflow resistor for greater airflow
pic7, reassembled barrel and components
pic8, reinsertion. be sure to line up the teeth on the barrel and the barrel-piston connection.
(unphotographed) tighten up that piston restraint screw again (in pic 3) and screw the gun back together.
