Take out the screws on the slide first. then pull it off. Then take all the screws out and pull your Maverick apart. You should see this.

ok so this wrecked my gun some how, lol at first i thought maybe i had messed something up internally but i opened the thing up, as well as an unmodded one and they are both identical, i have no idea whats going on, but it sound like its skipping when i pull everything back, and i pull the trigger, it shoots forward but the gun doesn't fire the bullet i don know whats going on
I had that same problem. If you dismantle the gun again, near the top you should find a long and skinny little spring that has a loop at one end. Put the half of the cocking handle with the pin on it through the long hole and hook the loop onto the pin. When you reassemble it, it should work.
i have to put the other halve on to do it :(
there is a catch that goes around the spring and clicks in to place with the pump so that when you pull the trigger it closes the pump, there is a small bit of plastic on the catch that sometimes gets ground smooth. i'm not sure how to fix it but that might be your problem. hope that helped
replace the spring

I have extra pieces. there is a tiiiny spring, and a little plastic piece with a hole and four prongs on one side, and what looks like a clip on the other side. please help!

What you're referring to as the "barrel" is the cylinder of the gun. The barrel is the orange piece the dart emerges from when fired.

Did every thing but once I put it together I can pull back the top so I can't shoot ??? Help??
The slider has a thin rod in it. If you look inside near the top, there's a spring with a loop in it. Make sure the rod goes through that loop. Might help you.
that is what i did wrong the first time and then the barrel didnt rotate

hey i have a question about this, my maverick is broken because of me tring this mod and now when i reload it makes a loud poping sound and dosen't fire. how do i fix it?
your back barrel might nnot be alligned. thers a similar mod but its to the revolving casing only same steps except instead of shaving the actual gun (the blue pic in step 3) u shave the barrel there
Who knew a small change to the frame would have such a neat effect?

it's called a cylinder. the barrel is the orange thing sticking out the front of your maverick. ya'know, the one the bullet travels through?

I tried it out and it works well but I used a coping saw instead of a file.

Not just that, it also allows the barrel to spin freely for a safe game of russian roulette.

after the fact i took the barrel out fully

How did you take out the I dont know stick things inside each chamber of the barrel? Does it improve preformance?
it improves performance, but not much more than 10 feet. works great though! check this out, it's a removable turret: http://nerfhaven.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=83670
I know it improves performance, but how do you do it?
open up the gun like in the guide, then open up the cylinder thinggy, you have to pull out the metal rod which can be kind of hard. Then cut the sticks with a wire cutter or clippers or scissors or w/e and remove the plastic things on the tiny springs

revtiedye5 years ago
I'm sorry to be so anal about this, but I was quite confused until I realized you what you were calling a barrel, is what I've always called the magazine.  I'm pretty sure the barrel is the long tube where the compression builds up behind the bullet. 
no that's called a piston or compression chamber. and a revolver wouldn't have a magazine, its a cylinder.
Ok, forget the word "Magazine."  Obviously I'm not a gun expert.  My point is that this instructible says it's modifying the "Barrel."  I drew a picture of a classic cowboy style six-shooter, and asked 10 people to point to the barrel of the gun.  All 10 pointed to the long tube at the front that the bullet comes out of.  Only one of them pointed to the cylinder, but then he said, "Normally I would have pointed to this (points to the barrel just like everybody else) but I thought it was a trick question."  Check out this diagram, or any other on the internet: 
I am asking whether, for clarity's sake, the author of this instructible should have used the word "Cylinder" everywhere he or she wrote "Barrel."
I agree. This is a cylinder mod, not a barrel mod. I too wish the author would change the description. When I read "allows barrel to come out more, I was thinking silencer...
 I think it's still considered a "barrel" because the Maverick's "Cylinder" actually IS the Barrel. ^__^  I do get what you mean though
I have the yellow maverick and I can't find the "blue" ridge on it where is it?
if your loking lol if not it's in the same spot only yellow
Deathco5 years ago
Wheres the "blue" ridge if you have the yellow Maverick?
Well, if you think just a little harder, you'll notice that the gun in this instructable is blue, so the ridge would be blue. So if you have a yellow Maverick the ridge will be yellow. You'd also notice that all Mavericks are the same so it'll be in the same spot.

in the same place, behind where the barrel sits in the little gap between the two orange holes

mulissi5 years ago

I've done this mod, but I find the barrel sticks now when I hit the button on the side.  Is there any fix for this?

It does roll all the way out like it should when it rolls out, but more often than not, it gets caught first, requiring some wiggling to roll it all the way out.
pezorama5 years ago
 Does this ruin the turning of the barrel/cylinder? For instance, it's calibration? I really want to do this mod since it's damn annoying to loaf it up with only one and a half slots exposed.  But I don't want to ruin the gun. Anyone know? ^__^
alemuair5 years ago
i have found that a better way to remove the ridges is to heat up a exacto knifes blade (if you have one of course) lucky for me i have too many of the things laying around so i attached it to the handle and heated it up... slid through like butter i then took sandpaper and sanded it smooth by hand
 Worked perfect for me! Thanks

While you have it open, why don't you drill out the air restrictors?
maxmaz2 (author)  oh11346 years ago
i actually did that afterward
but where are they
maxmaz2 (author)  iLikeCoolStuf6 years ago
you have to open up the barrel and they're like little prongs
they are the little things un the second image of step 1
maxmaz2 (author)  iLikeCoolStuf6 years ago
You have to open up the yellow barrel. they are orange pieces black in the yellow gun
what do restrictors do?
restrict air...
Those are NOT air restrictors. Do NOT remove them. They are the things that hold the barrel in, it will break your gun. click here yo see a air restrictor removal mod.
but where are they

maxmaz2 (author)  ShadicRexx6 years ago
thank you
where is the blur ribge part???
i used a cerated knife instead it works faster
vangel6 years ago
Awesome instructions, thank you. Since I used a small hacksaw to cut the ridges off, I had this mod complete in less than 15 minutes, minus a small piece of finger. It feels like the pins holding the barrel in might be a little weak now, so I wouldn't want to take this into nerfwars without replacing those pins with something stronger, but for my steampunk revolvers this is awesome. Thanks so much!!
vangel6 years ago
The ridge is the little pill shaped bump I'm guessing?
I tried this, I suggest that you heat up a knife and melt of the pieces, its way faster.
maxmaz2 (author)  memnarch11136 years ago
you could use a hot knife, one of those wood-burner-with-a-blade thingys
this takes for ever to file down
maxmaz2 (author)  naruto the ninja136 years ago
oh yes it does
i have a little file it took me an hour to file them both down
what do you have to shave i dont get what has to be shaved

um, ok?
Tendrop6 years ago
Very neat mod, I give it a 4 out of 5, because you missed this step: When reassembling the slider, you need to make sure that the metal bar goes through the loop of the spring, because that is what makes the slider return to place after cocking the gun.
maxmaz2 (author)  Tendrop6 years ago
i assumed that when you took it apart you noticed and instinctively put it together the same way it came apart thanks

im sorry if anyone else did this cause last time i checked was a while ago
Yeah this mod has been posted before, in fact it is in the related http://www.instructables.com/id/nerf-mavrick-mod/
Mavericks are one of the most modded nerf guns and the standard mods range from removing the air restricters, changing springs, making a tighter connection between the pump and barrel, and of course cutting the little tabs off the barrels. Also you should know that with this and many other mods the structural integrity of the gun is lowered and parts can snap off, but then again it is a cheap gun so have fun with it.
maxmaz2 (author)  flamesedge7 years ago
what you do for this mod doesnt really damage anything too bad
