    What does a safety removal do exactly? Well, it means you'll be able to fire the blaster without the clip in place or the jam door closed. Why would we want to do that? Honestly, most people don't. The safeties are useful in that you can't accidentally dry fire the blaster, and you can't get your finger stuck in the breech by firing with the door open and your fingers where they shouldn't be. The problem lies in that if you don't have the clip completely 100% aligned, the blaster won't fire. Same deal if the jam door is even slightly askew. Having the blaster not fire when you're expecting it to is the kind of thing that can cause you serious problems mid-game. I understand the extra risks involved here but I'm a big boy; I know not to stick my fingers and the breech and pull the trigger and I know not to dry fire. I'm willing to accept those added concerns to loose the potential of one of the safeties going rouge and having the blaster not working in the split second where I really need it to. Assuming you feel the same way, please, read on.

    As always, we'll kick off with the blaster in question.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4439

    Remove the battery tray, then what seems like an endless supply of screws holding the shell together.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4441

    Take a good look at the internals, understand how they work.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4442

    You can see here one of the micro-switches that acts as a safety here. This one in particular is one of the three that checks to see if there's a clip in the blaster.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4443

    There's another one on the opposite side of the clip well.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4444

    And the third hides under the first one we looked at.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4445

    You can't really see this one, but there's another micro-switch under here that checks to see if the jam door is closed.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4446

    I hadn't mentioned this above but I also decided to remove the power switch on this blaster too. Again, I didn't want to accidentally knock it mid-game and turn the blaster off.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4448

    Simply cut the wires to the switch.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4449

    Ok, time to starts on the micro-switches!

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4450

    First up, remove the two screws holding this bar immediately above the micro-switch here.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4451

    Allowing us to then remove said bar.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4452

    The remove the two screws holding the switch itself in.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4453

    Cut the wires to it so you can move it to one side, then remove the three screws holding the now exposed clip release catch. Then remove said catch. The clip release button will fall off at this stage, don't lose it.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4454

    Next, remove the two screws holding the next micro-switch in.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4455

    Then remove the switch itself.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4456

    Replace the clip release button and catch.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4457

    Now move to the left side of the clip well and remove the front part of the breech.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4459

    Like so.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4460

    We can now see the jam door micro-switch hiding under here.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4461

    Remove the two screws holding this cover plate in.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4462

    And the cover plate itself. We now have access to the wires for the safeties.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4463

    Two screws, micro-switch, yada yada yada.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4464

    Push it to one side, then remove the screw holding the dart tooth in.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4465

    The remove the dart tooth and the two screws visible here.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4466

    With the screws removed you can pry this piece up just enough to remove the jam door switch. At this stage we'll also need to pull both switches and their associated wiring over to the other side of the clip well.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4467

    Replace the dart tooth.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4469

    Then the cover plate.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4470

    Then the front part of the breech.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4471

    We should now have a nice series of four micro-switches no longer in the blaster. Trace the wire back to the trigger switch.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4472

    It should be the one shown here on the left.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4473

    Cut it with enough length to reach the on/off switch wiring we cut earlier.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4474

    Strip some of the shielding back.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4475

    Twist together.

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4477

    Then solder. (also tape but no pictures of said tape /sadface)

    Nerf Stampede - Safety Removal DSCN4478

    Put the shell back together and we're done! You now have one unsafe blaster... teehee...
