Hey guys this is my first mod writeup. This IS what the write up is about.

PHASE ONE: AR REMOVAL!

The Nerf Elite Retaliator. Here is another Blaster Pic.

The Internals

First, off this is a direct plunger system meaning that white piece you see, is the plunger tube. The orange piece sticking out of it is the Plunger rod. Look at the pic you will see that the breech is also located within the plunger. Kind of weird at first. Those two white pieces at the bottom are the locks.

This write up is just the simple AR removal, and locks. This is just like the recon but smaller breech and a different set up. Going from reverse plunger to direct is a little weird. The Spring not seen in the picture rests on the orange PR. IT is weak, but we will get to that. First you need to remove the PT and breech set up. It is easy it slides out.

First we are going to look at that pesky AR/peg. There it is see it? Sorry for the pic. I couldn't get it at the right spot.

"How do I remove it?" Asks the kid in the back row.

"Simple", I say. "However you need to know that thing moves the length of the breech shaft and there is no way to grab it unless you have a longer set of needle nose. So what I did, is that I took a screwdriver and hammer and removed the peg by nailing it. (A laugh chuckles from the class. Mr. Greydon looks sternly at them.) Once you do that you will notice that the three prong AR piece is still there. I didn't have long enough needle nose pliers to get them out so I kept it in there. But look at it it creates a small hole.

That could be used for a better air flow. I kept it in there, because of my situation with the needle nose pliers. But class that is the simple AR Removal. I will get better Needle nose pliers and get that thing out of there. But here is the first write up of an Elite blaster. Hope you like. No! I didn't do a range test it is too hot here to try one. So don't ask.

PHASE 2: SPRING REPLACEMENT! COMING SOON!

I'm not sure if this applies to this post, but you aren't supposed to post about blasters or other items that have not been released to the general public.

Very nice first writeup, Greydon. Are the internals swappable with a Recon?

If two powerful is a problem then just go with one powerful. I guess this style of hopper will work even beyond three powerful..

No! I say this being a fan of the recon. The hole in the back of the shell going into the stock attachment, is smaller. The breech is smaller and there is a small piece of white plastic that would stop the recon internals.

I don't know why you would want to swap them out? But due to being smaller, I would say it would take some internal modifications to fit the recon internals.

I expect that the idea was to go the reverse direction and install those internals within a recon shell.

If that was the case then yeah you could do it that way. However they are smaller so be prepared to do some modifications to hold it there. Will take a picture tomorrow of it with a recon.

I believe you are the first to mod an elite blaster, kudos! How wide is the pt by the way? is more or less than the nf?

Cool! I have been waiting for these things to come out since I frst saw them. (I will most definitly have to check my local TRU) Do you have any of the elite darts? If so, could you post a few pics, I'd really like to see how the're different than normal streamlines.

I got 12 with the blaster.

They have a softer dark blue foam, and a harder streamline tip.

I thought this wasn't going to be out for months. The TRU website doesn't even have it listed. Maybe your local TRU just screwed up royally and put it on shelves early?
Edit: The trailer says it is set for release on 9.9.12 so your TRU must have really dropped the ball on this one.


Maybe...I am stoked though. I may get the rampage tomorrow. Then I will be good.

I still really like how this thing looks. Does the front barrel attachment actually help with ranges because it's rifled? What ranges are you getting with the stock ammo after AR removal? Anywhere close to the stated 75'?

Edit: Clarified on barrel.

rifling doesn't help Nerf, and it's purely cosmetic. The dart shouldn't even be touching the inside of the faux barrel.

Any reports on how it seems to shoot stock out of the box (I know you arent getting ranges but a performance comparison say, against a stock reverse plunger recon or something)? Are the darts a little heavier at all? I know Im stopping at the toys r us here as soon as I get off work lol.
