Picture of Nerf Maverick Power Mod
I've looked around on the internet, and i have noticed that the only mod's avalible for the maverick are the barrel mod & stuff that deals with "air restrictors." I decided to change that.
By doing this mod, you will increase the power & distance of each shot. The only down-side is that you have pull the slide back hard & sharp.

Step 1: Un-Screw

Picture of Un-Screw
Just go ahead & un-screw the gun (nothing internal, though). Don't forget the screw under the slide, i always do

Step 2: What you're doing

Picture of What you're doing
Pretty much, you're just adding about 1/2" of stuff between the yellow plastic & the spring. In order to do this, you'll have to cut most of the "plus" off of the female part of the air tube. Leave a little bit (about 2mm) so the spring as something to catch on to

Step 3: How much to add

Picture of How much to add
I added about 1/2" of stuff. I used a magnet, and the end of 2 shells from the Air Blasters Double Shot. You could use pretty much anything, but i would advise against coins because they tend to be too big.
*EDIT* A lot of people are saying that they used pennies, and the they worked fine. So just whatever floats your boat, i guess.

Step 4: Experiment

Picture of Experiment
Not all thing's are going to work with your gun, so experiment. In order to check if you have too much stuff in your gun, put it back together (without screws). When you pull back the slide & you don't here a "click," then you need to take something out.

Step 5: Finishing Up

After you've found the right amount of stuff to put in your gun, screw it back together. Also, don't forget this piece.
Troubleshooting: If you can't pull back the slide, then you might not have the trigger spring in place

All I did was stretched the spring so it was 2 times as long and I stuck 5 pennies in there to.
You should never really stretch the spring. it will greatly shorten the life of it.
its not shooting as far and as powerful as it was before i did this. thanks for letting me know
Try going to Orange Mod works. Or even cheaper, if you can find the spring gauge and get a stronger one at the hardware store, you should be golden. Nothing stronger than a 5KG spring. AND add some felt. like a layer or two to cushion the stronger force.

There was a buddy of mine who modded his Maverick like this and bragged so much about how far and fast it would shoot. So naturally, CHALLENGE EXCEPTED! I told him that if he could shoot me with it then i would give him 20 bucks. (What he did not know is that I spent a week dodging darts at a campground I worked at. I not only dodged all the shots I even caught the last one! But this is a good mod for beginners looking to wet their modding appetite!

Be careful you can break it from the power happened to me
you need to add padding to the inside of the plunger to cushion it when firing. if not the life of the gun will be shortened greatly

amazing. effing amazing. my brother wore out the air part to the point where 90% of the time the dart didnt have enough power behind it to leave the gun using brand new darts. to test i went to the doorway of my 32ft hallway and landed all six shots in the back of my brothers head at the other end. I take $0.04 over a new 10 dollar gun anyday. i have some new ideas for my crossover knex guns..

This worked, took maybe 2 minutes, and costs $0.05 in pennies. Great job!
dont do effed up my maverick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I did it fine...
he probably cut too much off, safer way to do this is to get a new spring.
you effed up your maverick by doing it wrong

I'm not dissing, but the simple mods often found on the web are effective if you use 1 or 2 of them. For example I used the penny and air restrictor mod, that powers it up, and shaved off those pegs on the magazine. These all add up to a powerful, nice to use maverick. I am now spraying it chaos black (From Games Workshop) And will paint those indented lines red. I'm also getting a £15 red dot sight from the states.

So this is basically a penny mod then...?
 this is a seriously underrated mod... couldn't quite find a more powerful spring that was the correct size for my nite finder, so i used the same approach. easy, cheap, and not invasive to your nerf blaster (it can be returned to stock at any time). great mod!
I forget the Mod I got this from:
but The #49 compression spring is a Hillman Fastener product. most often found at ACE hardware.
It is "PERFECT" in my daughters Nightfinder. She is doing Vampires -vs-Humans at Ohio state this week.
This is SPECTACULAR! We're doing Humans Vs. Zombies here at USF and I'll be donning the Maverick and Raider CS-35 Clear Series!
Outstanding! Dude!!
my daughter will be using her new modded
Nightfinder for Honor duels.
should be quite an edge, with such a lil' pistol.
Luck,
Mr Steve

Buddy, it's not even the same kind of mod. His is about air restricters, mine ain't.
I know
yes please
me & MAH friend just tried it. we used pennies and it worked pretty much fine. we used way too many, and the thing broke...
Four pennies work fine.
Pennies will work... but not many other coins will,
I agree. I did this mod with pennies and it worked fine.

if you loose the trigger spring a mechanical pencel spring works fine
or a pen, equally well
Furloy3 years ago
this is the "penny" mod. i glued 3 pennies together and put them back there.

also, why dont you take the air resrictors out? it helps alot
