    The 'Covers most bases Maverick mod'

    Post  Foam Militia on Sat Jun 26, 2010 3:53 pm

    This is a Maverick mod that incorporates most of the revolutionary mods that made the Maverick a semi-reliable gun. That hits up to 11 meters! *Individual results may vary

    Note : I will be switching between photos of my yellow Mav' and clear Mav'.

    You will need
    - A Maverick
    - Mallet
    - Flathead screwdriver or phillips head screwdriver
    - Hot glue or Araldite
    - Sandpaper, sanding block and wire cutters or a rotary tool - commonly known as a Dremel, which is a brand.
    - Plastic box
    - White sheet/material

    Section 1 - 'Open sesame'.

    Step 1
    Unscrew all your screws and place them in a plastic container, on a white sheet.


    Section 2 - 'AR removal'.

    Step 1
    Remove the turret assembly from the gun.


    Step 2
    Pry of this front grey piece using a flathead screwdriver or the like.

    The front plate will come off with a rod attached to it and a spring and cap should come off the other end. Place these small pieces in your plastic box.


    Step 3
    Unscrew the 3 screws located on the rear area of the turret. Note : the grey rotational piece will cover 1-2 screws, be sure to move it. Place your screws in your plastic box.


    Step 4
    Pull off your turret's back plate.


    Step 5
    One by one, pull of your barrel pegs, place them aside, and let your AR's and AR springs drop out. Throw all of your AR's away - unless you fancy them as stefan weights - and all AR springs, bar 1, place that in your plastic box.

    Now, with your barrel pegs handy, chop the pegs off.

    With your barrel pegs now looking like so

    sand them down so they look neat.

    Replace all of your cut down barrel pegs.


    Step 6
    Place the turret backplate back on and screw it in. Grab your front grey piece and place the AR spring you set aside over the rod and put it through the center of the turret.

    Put the spring that came off the turret on the opposing end where it initially came from and place the endcap over it. Mallet the stucture back together.

    Section 3 - 'Russian Roulette'.

    Step 1
    With your turret still out of the gun, look at the front end. Notice that little nub?

    Cut that off. Either use your rotary tool/Dremel or wire cutter and a sanding block w/ sandpaper. The Dremel method is self explanatory - cutting disk then sand. For the other, cut the most part off with your wire cutters and then sand down. You want this as smooth as possible.


    Step 2
    On the shell of your turret, near the rotating mech, you should see this nub.

    Same as before, cut and sand to as smooth as possible.


    Once you have done this, replace the turret.

    Section 3 - 'Rotation Issues'

    Step 1

    Remove this mechanism from your gun. There are four screws, you only need to undo the two closest to the turret. This is the roation mech.

    Now undo it's only screw.

    These are your rotation mech's pieces. Place the spring, screw, case and holding bar in your box.


    Step 2
    Take the slip' clutch and glue its teeth to the teeth on the rotator gear. Put it back together and screw it in.

    Step 3
    Once the rotation mech is back together, unscrew your trigger. With the trigger pulled off, you will see its, spring held in by one screw. Unscrew that and take the spring out.

    I, like CS, have moved it to here.


    Section 6 - 'One is a penny to many'

    I have not done the penny mod as I lost my last maverick to an over-compressed spring.

    Section 7 - 'Sophisticated hooray'

    Congratulations!

    Look out over the vineyards as the sun sets with your english wife as you discuss Leonardo Da Vinci's many excellent inventions, while simoultaneously mulling over the simplictity yet superiority of Bruce Dawe's poetry and take well educated sips of only the finest in red wines as you mave on to the the atrocity that is Oznerf's grammar...

    Thankyou for your semi-mathematis view of the mod. There may be a barrel replacement. The Mav's being $12 is an incentive for me to break a few attemting to make the seal good enough to accept 16mm conduit or PETG.

    There definately needs to be more writeups/threads like this. Perhaps a rebarrel guide would be good for completeness, but there's a couple over at NH anyways.

    Yes well today myself and foam had a 1v1, I ditched my titan and grabed his mav and well I personaly prefur the stock rotation mech but hey what ever floats your boat.

    PS If it were me in the ending instead of discussing the invetions of Leonardo Da Vinci I would be discussing the inventions of Nikola Tesla the forgoten wizzard (and the inventer of the 20-21 century.)

    Good writeup anywho, I might do that rotation mech to my Mav now, I'm just curious as to what difference it actually makes? (I'm just assuming its more reliable)

    It does make it a tad less comfortable for long periods of time/trigger pulls. This section is for pre-empting an increased seal via rubber. Therefore increasing friction on the turret and rotation mech. When such a thing happens the slipper clutch begins its designated duties and the rotating stops. This leaves you with a Mav' requiring hand rotation. This mod isn't really necessary unless you are planning to increase the seal/turret friction alot.

    KK, I was going to write Tesla but I was...shocked, by his inventions.

    Fixing the slipper clutch in position. You can use hot glue or Araldite. However, I do reccomend Araldite.

    i just did the AR removal part of the mod, closed my gun back up and now the darts wont shoot. I put them in and then cock it then shoot buy all I hear is a big click (like the shooting noise) put nothing shoots out. Any ideas?

    Disregard this post, didn't realize you had to put the springs back under the caps lol.

    Just a noob question here: If I only want to mod my Maverick so it has Russian Roulette mod, can I only do Step 2 or do I have to do both Step 2 & 3? Cheers.

    Well, Megan Fox is way hotter than Maverick.

    Anyway I am planning to remove the AR too. I'm just wondering what is the point of fixing this so-called "Rotation problem" in step 3?

    Post  Foam Militia on Fri Sep 17, 2010 4:13 pm

    Well...There are many contributing factors. 1 is that the turret will rotate perfectly fine under little or no pressure/friction from the plunger. I tend to experiment with increasing the seal between the turret and plunger via the use of rubbber washers. These in turn, increase friction and so the turret has trouble with completing the rotation because, during the 2nd phase, the trigger return spring does not have enough force to align the turret to the correct place, it will stop half-way.

    To even get it this far you need to resolve problem 2. 2 is that the slipper clutch will engage to prevent damage to the rotation mech teeth. The slipper clutch stops all rotation at a certain friction level/pressure so the turret is ineffective.

    So, locking the slip mech in place allows the turret some hope of progressing past its first slip clutch restriction. Get the picture? Or am I bad at explaining things?

    P.S. Whats better then a Megan Fox and a Maverick?

    Megan Fox...With, a Maverick in hand. Huh? Huh?

    Is there a difference between getting rid of the stick, and then getting rid of the stick and the entire restrictor area (so you basically drill out the stick and instead of 4 small channels, you get 1 big channel.

    I've cleaned it out so I've got one big channel, and I've noticed that performance isn't anywhere as close as other AR-removal methods with stock darts.

    But now I think about it, it makes sense why the performance boost isn't as high

    OK, thanks for this mod, I just spent the morning modding my first Nerf for the first time. Like you guys recommended I did all 3 steps.
    Impressed with the chamber now can swing out so much
    Can also feel the trigger pull a bit more resistent
    But quite disappointed that despite the AR removed, the new shooting range has not increased by much
    Before the mod, stock darts has range around 30 feet. After the mod, they only increase by about 2 feet. Less than 10% improvement. I must go back and investigate whether I have made any mistake.

    Great mod guide, clear pics and decent instructions but I only have one cristicism: would it be possible to go back and edit the guide to explain WHY you would want to perform each of the mods?

    What problem is it trying to solve?
    What are the likely gains from performing it?
    What negative effects will the mod have, if any?

    This would really help n00bs like myself decide whether its worth performing them rather than blindly following. Constructive criticism I hope, it might reduce the amount of follow up questions from new users if they can read a guide that clearly explains everything in a single post. Cheers.

    Seeing as you are only 12 years old and I don't know how dextrous you are with your hands and tools, there is always risk of damaging a Nerf blaster if you haven't done one before. Honestly Maverick is my first Nerf I bought 3 weeks ago and attempted this mod. It did take me a few hours to mod it according to this instruction as well as adjusting bits and pieces a few times, but it wasn't too hard.

    Like I have said previously, the Russian Roulette barrell fully swing out is cool, but the AR removal is a disappointment as it did not really add significant range compared to stock Maverick.

    Would recommend not doing the AR removal unless you absolutely need your Maverick to shoot stefans - especially if its a clear one. They shoot well enough and unless you tweak the rotation mech and stuff, after doing the AR removal your gun probably will suck more.

    Couple more mods for the Mav': Replacing the bar in the slide with a stronger nail allowing the penny mod, catch spring replace/reinforce.

    The bar in the slide is made of stainless steel, why reinforce that? It's where it mates to the plunger tube that you want to reinforce, that can break off easily.

    Well you can reinforce the part that attaches to the plunger, but I found that in two of my mavericks that the little plastic nubs that hold the bar in place snapped off, so I replaced it with a nail running right out the slide.

    EDIT: Oh and jackattack the reason(s) for this may be:
    1. No o-ring
    2. That in general you should know that the maverick is a pistol made for rate-of-fire, not range. So dont expect that doing a few mods will pump it up to 50 feet.
    On the lighter side, to get a better turret-plunger tube seal, put a spring in between the turret and the turret support post at the front (sorry for no pic I will post one soon.

    I added a night finder spring to my element, carved out the AR, replaced the o-ring and it has less range than my friends modified maverick (all he did was take out the AR and add a spring)
