The catch mechanism may be messed up.
Pictures would help, though.


This would go under Modification, BTW.

check if you seated the plunger assembly correctly. If its not cotrrectly placed, it won't fire, or it won't go far (1-2 inches)

Yeah uhh I dont have a camera

And yes its 'seated' correctly its been doing that ever since I got it but TRU wouldn't let me return it.
Atleast I got it for cheap.

What should I do?

Are you holding the slide back while you shoot it?

Well you're seals messed up or something. If you can still cock it (it shoots when you pull the trigger), then something else is amiss besides the cocking mechanism.

Also, your avatar is really annoying me. Whenever I see it I think your Forsaken_Angel. No offence or anything.

I've found that there is only one foolproof way to fix your maverick.

1) Throw the damn thing in the trash
2) Buy a new nerf gun, preferably more reliable than a maverick

On a more serious note, it looks like something snapped in your internals. Open her up and compare your internals with pictures to see what might be out of place or broken. If it's fixable, you will want to know exactly what's wrong first.

The orange piece in the back that surrounds the spring is the catch. I'm not sure as to what's wrong with your gun, other then the fact that its a mav.

I found the problem I stated in my last post...

I guess next thing to do is to mod it and not lose that spring :P

Thanks for All Your Help!!!!

For future mods, i suggest you take a paper towel and put it right over your gun as soon as you open it.That way, it dosen't go far.
