I suggest you be very specific about your problem and/or provide pictures. Can you pull the plunger back? Does it lock in place? Is it the trigger that isn't working? WHAT is the problem?

The plunger pulls back fires but the dart comes out half way or not at all. It's nt modded or anything I'm using the darts that came with it.

The darts are likely warped or damaged. Nitefinders, crossfires and the like, when stock, are extremely picky about the quality of the ammo they use. Get yourself a pack of 10 new darts, anything but strealines, and try those, they should work.

Or remove the air restrictors and use whatever darts you like.

If it's new and not modded, just return it and get a new one.

If this could possibly help with future problems:

If it turns out to be the darts, and not the gun, then as was said; get new darts. but storage of the darts is very important.

I used to be big on stock nerfing for years before I got into modding. I would keep all of my ammo in the barrels of my guns. I would wonder why darts stored in Buzzbee guns would fly better than darts stored in Nerf guns. Most nerf gun barrels are tighter at the bottom than the rest of the barrel. This makes a better air seal. My buzzbee guns did not have this. After darts had been left in the barrels for about a week, they would permenently retain their reverse-bottleneck shape, causing them to make horrible air seals.

When getting more darts, be sure not to store them in the gun.

Actually i was thinking of doing the manta mod on it. or making two mantas. This is the first time i've had nerf guns. I had that rediculous pen thing. But it like died in 3 days. I have a firefly and a recon. I want a long shot and a vulcan but both are out of my price range right now. Oh and the recon clips are back on hasbro's web site after like 3 months, but only the single pack one

the gun is over 3 months old. I got it just befor I joined Nerf Haven. unfortunately I couldn't ask for help because of the tremendious applications to this forum. I was just validated a week ago. Forgive my grammatical errors I am typing this on an at&t tilt.
