Introduction: Nerf Longstrike Mod

Picture of Nerf Longstrike Mod

I have seen only 1 Longstrike mod on the web and it was difficult to understand so i am going to make one.

Step 1: Opening It Up

You only have to focus on the main blaster unit not the extension or stock remove the bolt with a hammer claw and unscrew the screws.

Step 2: Modding

Now, for the mod you see the big spring take it out and just stretch it out not to much but not to little.

Step 3: Put It Back Together

Now make sure everything is in place and put the other side back on.Then screw everything back together and put the stock and bolt back on.

Step 4: Range

My Longstrike now shoots about  25 `. It may sound louder now

Do not stretch your spring, it will lose its tension after a while and be less powerful than a stock spring. If you need more power just buy a larger spring.

If I am correct, after a period of use, the spring's function will quickly change to worse than stock performance. I do not recommend this mod.

Um... I want to take off the bolt but I'm afraid my gun (Or bolt) will break! Please help me!

Just use a large flathead screw driver. put it under one of the orange knobs and gently lever it up. It'll eventually pop off with no dramas.

i just tried that it almost broke my gun any other useful ideas

put coins behind the spring to put more tension.

oh, that gives more overall power.

The hammer thing works. But remember to be gentle!

eturner7 (author)2011-08-05

Worked great thank you! Had some difficulty when pieces of the gun started coming out but we got it back together!

I'm in the middle of modding my son's Longstrike now. If you cut the the tube right at the connection point it's relatively easy to modify but not remove the restirctor. You can still cut out the guide pin and you can bore a hole through the restrictor itself. Just be very careful, a straight cut around the tube and perhaps some external reinforcement (strapping tape works) along the length, across the connection is necessary.

TIP: If you stretch your spring you mess up the tension on it. This makes it last shorter. A better way to mod is to remove the ARs (Air Restrictor). This will not mess up the gun. Also instead of strectching the spring and messing it up. Get a bigger and stronger spring and stick that in. This might make it go a little farther.

did you take out the air restrictor?
if you do that it will shoot even further, but there is one danger to it, if you do it incorrectly, you might end up with a broken nerf gun, so be careful when doing it

benjamin17 (author)sonofstone2011-03-15

I didn't but I might sometime

ilpug (author)2010-12-05

just got one of these. I removed the air restrictor, and it works much better, with at least 3 times more power. the only problem was that the small inner barrel that houses the restrictor was glued together, making it a pain to get to. i finally scored and broke the inner barrel to get at it, then glued it back together with Krazy Glue. then i went online and saw that you need to remove the barrel post to shoot stefans... which means i have to go in and re-break the barrel to get at it. I also shoved a peice of pipe in the barrel to narrow the diameter and increase range, which helped a little bit. this is kinda a superfluous instructable, but your on the right track.

the gun you have tyhere is a longstrike I think

josh980 (author)2010-07-30

When you take off the bolt with the hammer claw, does it break the bolt?, as in can you put the bolt back on the gun and have it so it doesn't fall off?

benjamin17 (author)josh9802010-07-30

You just have to stick it back on if you do it to much it will be become loose

billybenj (author)2010-06-21

lol, streching the spring out will make it more powerful at first, but after time it will lose power, please no one do this to their gun, and its not really a mod, if u wana do a mod remove air restrictors, replace spring, or change barrels, 0 stars...

benjamin17 (author)billybenj2010-06-22

No, It does not lose power

billybenj (author)benjamin172010-06-22

well not at first, but after a while it will

okoshima (author)billybenj2010-06-25

ben is right... congrats on messing up a gun due to a common misconception. (have had to replace springs in airsoft guns that morons have stretched cause it makes em more powerful and then wondered why they loose alot of power)

benjamin17 (author)okoshima2010-07-18

which ben

If the spring isn't broght back to its minimum size when using this thing, a spacer would be more appropriate. If it is, you need a stronger spring, stretching it out is a terrible idea.
