Picture of Nerf Reflex: How to Add Recoil-SIMPLE!

          Have you ever wanted to make your Nerf guns feel more realistic? Do you want your Nerf guns to feel more powerful? Well, this Instructable will show you how! The best part is: this mod is removable, and it gives the Reflex TWO modes; Recoil Mode, and Silent Mode! Here's how:

Step 1: Materials

Picture of 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)

Does it affect performance?

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

Yeah this mod was really just for personal amusement for anyone who attempted it.

if you take out the metal thing you can't reload

nerfrocketeer (author)otmpp2013-08-22

Yes you can. Are you using an original N-strike reflex(in the ible), or an Elite Reflex?

does it work with elite????

It works on the Elite Reflex.

otmpp (author)nerfrocketeer2013-08-23

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)otmpp2013-08-23

Oh, yeah, sorry it only works for a reflex. :(

otmpp (author)nerfrocketeer2013-08-24

Cool! Good luck, (or I hope it turned out well).

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)hunter9992013-08-26

Ok! Good luck getting a RS18! I'm trying to get one as well! Also, take a look at the Centurion!

Thanks! :)

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.

This could easily fit in a POCKET...!!!!! hint hint...
