Introduction: Nerf Maverick Mod to Airsoft Gun
With duct tape, a starbucks straw (the ones in the green wrappers), and a Nerf Maverick, you can make your nerf gun a kinda wimpy airsoft gun. It has about a 99 percent fire rate though! But at least its an airsoft gun. Yay!
The paint will rub off on your hands if you don't varnish it. See the silver can in the background of the lubricant pic? I used that and now paint does not rub off like it used to.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Make the Barrel Mod
Cut the straw, tape it, and put it in. It has to be a bit shorter then the cylinder because it won't fit all the way. tape the top if you want extra support to prevent the tip from cracking. Also, don't tape it so close to the bottom of the straw.
It has to fit in snugly. test it a few times, and put it it and pull it out of the cylinder with needle nose pliers.
Step 2: Test Fire
test fire your gun to make sure it works. It's kinda wimpy, but it's better than the original! You might want to pinch the straw tips to make sure the bb stays in the straw. Also, use a nail or small screwdriver as a "ram rod" to put the bb all the way down the barrel.
Step 3: Paint (optional)
Paint your gun if you want. I used plastic paint and it adheres well. It also is kind of rough and offers a nice grip.
Step 4: Lubricate! (only If You Painted)
Lube it after 12 hours of letting the paint dry. Lube the trigger, the cylinder, the slide, inside the slide, and every moving part you can find!!! I used silicone spray lubricant.
Step 5: Done!!
Go shoot your friends with the new airsoft gun!
