Simple Nerf Firestrike Mod

Picture of Simple Nerf Firestrike Mod
This is a simple mod. You can (and it has been done) also do this for the Nite Finder. This mod makes the gun SUPER powerful. It now has recoil! The Nerf Elite guns all claim to reach at least 75 feet, but they do not, but after this mod, this one does!!!

you are underestimating the range of these guns, a few years back I did a range test on the nite finder , without this mod it fired 60feet and with this mod it did 75 feet. and that was just the nite finder

The bands should rock the gun in your hand if you put enough on.

Nice, but makes it heck hard to reload. All in all, nice mod.

Thanks
Doing this severely lowers the life expectancy of the blaster. It only worked WELL with the Tech Target blaster, the one that used mega darts, because it had a much sturdier priming handle than the Nite Finder and Firestrike do. It's a little bit harder but very worth it and better for the blaster to replace the spring. These DO get 75ft stock slightly angled, which is how Nerf does and always has measured their ranges.
