Step 1: Materials

You will need:
1 Nerf Reflex
1 Small crosshead (Philips) screwdriver

Step 2: Step one

Picture of Step one
Simply unscrew the screws on the slide of the gun and remove both halves. Take out the little metal rod. This will disconnect the slide from the small spring inside.

Step 3: Step two

Then, put both halves of the slide back together WITHOUT replacing the metal rod. You can... but it doesnt affect anything, and is just more work. I would try not to lose it though, just in case you want to undo this instructable.

Step 4: Step three

RECOIL MODE: Prime the gun. Make sure the silde stays BACK. FIRE!!!

Step 5:

SILENT MODE: Prime the gun. Make sure the slide stays FORWARD. FIRE!!! Just like you've always primed the Reflex...

Step 6:

AND THAT'S THE MOD! ENJOY! (my first 'ible)

I found out it works with all reflexes. But dont do it at all. My reflex broke after 3 wars using it.

if you take out the metal thing you can't reload
nerfrocketeer (author)  otmpp1 year ago
Yes you can. Are you using an original N-strike reflex(in the ible), or an Elite Reflex?

does it work with elite????

nerfrocketeer (author)  EpicMinecrafter8706 months ago

It works on the Elite Reflex.

no it is because i have a nerf scout so if it take it out (the metal thing)it won't pull back mabye it's different
nerfrocketeer (author)  otmpp1 year ago
Oh, yeah, sorry it only works for a reflex. :(
Oh okay I might get a nerf reflex elite I think cause there is the blue and yellow and the blue shall be mine

Cool, and clear instructions! I am considering buying a nerf gun, I was thinking a 'Rapid Strike CS-18'. I kinda like the see through mag on it
nerfrocketeer (author)  hunter9991 year ago
Ok! Good luck getting a RS18! I'm trying to get one as well! Also, take a look at the Centurion!

By doing this, and firing in what you call "recoil" mode, you lose power from your dart. Plus, you are leaving the return spring unatached inside the blaster, which could jam in the plunger and break it. I would suggest opening up the blaster and remove the return spring.
