    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  Empty Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal

    Post  Jeo Tue Oct 23, 2012 2:52 pm

    Released back in 2010 alongside the Alpha Trooper and the Barricade, the Nerf Barrel Break was an interesting piece of kit. I had played a decent amount with the BuzzBee double shot previously but never really had any interest in the Barrel Break back then. Hell, even now it's one of the few recent Nerf blasters I don't own at least one of. This then lead me to post a WTB in a local blaster trading group a few months back. A friend (and former lecturer) noticed said WTB and while he wasn't willing to sell me his beloved "Charity", he was clever enough to inquire as to if I only wanted it for modding purposes.

    While I sure would have liked to add one to the collection, I mostly did just want to get my hands on one to write a walk through. His was stock and he wasn't overly attached to that fact, so he offered me the blaster to 'borrow and mod'. Wins all round I say.

    Today we'll be performing a simple air restrictor removal, or AR removal for short.

    _______________________________________________________________________

    Tools/Materials required…

    Phillips head screwdriver
    Drill and assortment of drill bits
    Long round hand file
    Electrical tape
    _______________________________________________________________________

    As always, start by opening up the blaster in question.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4883

    This is a little different from most other Nerf blasters in that there are a lot of different types of screws.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4884

    This short fat one went...

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4885

    Here, in front of the trigger guard.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4886

    The two short normal width ones went...

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4887

    Along the top tac rail here.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4888

    These two longer screws went...

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4889

    Here at the back of the blaster,

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4890

    And here, at the underside.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4891

    The four regular sized screws went...

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4892

    Here, in the handle.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4893

    Finally the big flat screw goes here, on the right. You can leave the one on the left alone for the time being.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4909

    Once all of those are removed you should be able to open up the blaster.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4894

    As always, have a good look around at this point to get an understanding of how it all works.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4895

    Knowing how something should work makes re-assembly FAR easier.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4896

    OK, happy? Good. Press this tab here allowing you to slide the barrel forward slightly.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4897

    Like so.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4898

    Then carefully slide it all the way forward.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4899

    Lift the first plunger assembly out of the blaster.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4900

    So we can get to work on it. Take note at this point that the spring is larger in diameter at the back, the catch is facing up, and the lip at the front is also up.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4901

    Pull apart all the components.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4902

    Oooo, look, an air restrictor.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4903

    Grab your drill and go to town on that sucker, then clean it up with your file

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4904

    It's normally at this point where we'd improve the seal by wrapping the O-ring seat with teflon tape. However the seal from factory, on this Barrel Break at least, is pretty damn amazing. Trying to improve would only make it worse.

    Wrap this hole with electrical tape.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4905

    Replace the spring.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4906

    Happy with that? Lets get back to the blaster then.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4912

    Remove the catch at the back.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4913

    Flip it over and remove the left most big screw. The one holding the right half of the shell to the front assembly.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4910

    Flip the blaster back over again and remove the whole front assembly.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4914

    Taking careful note of these two springs.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4915

    Remove the seven screws holding the centre divider in.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4916

    Then remove said divider.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4917

    We've now got access to the second plunger.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4918

    Take it out and perform the same mods as we did on the first one.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4919

    Check it, two plunger assemblies! Again take note at this point that the spring is larger in diameter at the back, the catch is facing up, and the lip at the front is also up.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4920

    Replace the first plunger.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4921

    Then the centre divider.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4922

    Then the front assembly.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4923

    Then the trigger.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4924

    Then the toothed slider.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4925

    Then the catch.

    Nerf Barrel Break – AR Removal  DSCN4926

    Then the shell and we're done, again remembering the screw locations mentioned at the start. There we have it, one AR'd Barrel Break.
