Nerf Reflex: How to Add Recoil-SIMPLE!




Introduction: Nerf Reflex: How to Add Recoil-SIMPLE!

About: Hello! I'm Nerfrocketeer, also known as Nefrock', Nerf, or NK. I am an avid fan of Nerf wars, engineering, and animal activism (but no I don't go overboard). Thank you for A MILLION views (woah!) and making ...

          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

You will need:
1 Nerf Reflex
1 Small crosshead (Philips) screwdriver

Step 2: 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)

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

    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

    Oh okay I might get a nerf reflex elite I think cause there is the blue and yellow and the blue shall be mine

    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

    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.
