I just got a Firefly and unscrewed all the screws to it. I go to take the top of the case of but the back is glued shut or something. After about half and hour of prying and such, I still couldn't get it. My question is, how do you get the back of the case apart? Sorry if there is already a thread, but Ive searched and couldn't find anything.

Don't pry, I ruined the stock of one of my Fireflies doing that. Instead, run an Exacto Knife along the seam until it goes through the glue and gently pry it off with a flathead screwdriver.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. A good nerf gun is like a good woman. It shouldn't require extra lubrication.

I'm in total agreement with deaddumpster, but when I ran into the same problem with my FF, I simply used a flathead instead of cutting. His way is much safer though.

Zippo lighter fluid is great for dissolving glues. I know people use it to get the shells apart on RF20's, so it should work fine on an FF. I use it for getting any glued parts off.

It's not like that. I put lube on it and its the same. Its just stuck. And when I cock it back it goes farther back then usual. Also I push as hard as I can and it wont go back in. I've tried the methods and they wont work. Also pics are up.

I ran into this problem on mine, but I didn't have a lot of tools at my disposal. So if you want to use the caveman method, just pry the shell open at the front a bit and put some kind of rod inside to hold it there, then just use a small screwdriver to take out the internals. Then you can mod it and such.
