Introduction: Nerf Scout 1X-3 Mod

In This Instructable I'm going to show you how to modify a Nerf Scout. The internal modifications consist of removing the air restrictior and plugging the holes in the barrel up, along with increasing the spring power.

Step 1: What You Need

-Nerf Scout (duh)
-small Phillips head screwdriver 
-needle nose pliers

Step 2: Disassimble

take all the screws out, three of them are behind the slide.

Step 3: Removing the Air Restrictor

first take the o-ring off so you don't damage it, then use a dremel or drill to cut through the back it the plunger into the restrictor. then use a pair of pliers to pull the restrictor out

Step 4: Sealing the Barrel

towards the end of the barrel there are two holes that let air escape from the barrel. i used masking tape to cover these holes up, you can use hot glue or whatever you want just make sure it will fit back in the gun.

Step 5: Adding Power

i took a piece of card stock and folded it up and put it behind the spring to compress the spring more, you just want to make sure you don't add to much.

Step 6: Finished

now just put it all back together and you're done

    Good instructable, thanks. I'll have a go at this. I particularly like the comment in "What you need" - A Nerf Scout (duh). Classy!

    just did this to mine, its really cool and makes it louder and have a better range. thanks man

    thnx man it helped a lot

    Two things 1) Why dont you want to put a bunch of card stock behind the spring? 2) Can't you just put a new and better spring inside? Thats what i did with my longshot. Great instructible too!

    You can put a new spring but it is easier to add cardboard.

    Too much and you can't pull it all the way back to get the trigger to catch.

    It looks either like a peace sign or a +. Basically the post in the barrel.

    nice mod dude paint it it will make it cooler and more 1 of a kind.

     what do i do if my o ring is broken? email the answer to please.

    this was my first instructable, how can i make my next instructable better?

    where can i buy one, i had one but it broke.

    toys-r-us  has it but, i think you have to buy it in a set that comes with the titan and a hornet

    You did good... it's fine.

    about 25% more power

    How much extra power does this add?
