In this Instructable I'm going to show you how to mod a Nerf Nitron into a semi-automatic gun. You might ask yourself, who in their right mind would turn a fully automatic gun into a half automatic one? The answer is simple, it gives you better control, is lighter and who has ever fired a Nerf Nitron knows how ridiculously slow it normally is. This combined with a voltage mod makes this gun simply amazing (now it takes about 5 seconds to fire 20 shots).
This mod is not for beginners, don't proceed unless you are certain, that you are able to do it.

|Time to empty 20 shot magazine [s]||12||5-6|
It also shoots a lot further, but I don't have the possibility to compare them at the moment.
