Ok today I got my 4-pack of eliminators in the mail and I immediately wanted to mod them to shoot my stefans but I ran into trouble taking the gun apart. I cannot get the gun apart after I took the screws out. I took all the screws out and it did not just pop apart like other guns. I tried wedging it apart with screwdrivers but I did not apply a lot of force because I did not want to break it. Here are some pictures of what it looks like. It seems to be stuck around the handle where there is like an oval shaped piece on the bottom that the extendable grip/dart holder is. I am unsure how to get the shell apart, any advice?

Ok now for my other question. I have a Buzz Bee RFR and I heard it was a good idea to reinforce the catch, can someone tell me how to do this?

Thanks everyone!

Cut off the ring between the slide-out handle and the main gun shell.

Cut off the ring between the slide-out handle and the main gun shell.


Is that the only way to take the gun apart? Will the gun be able to go back together cleanly? Finally, what should I used to cut it off?

Thanks 1337.

Actually, I found that pulling it at a 30 degree angle away from the oval looking thing gets it right out.

Could you explain this a little better? I am confused somewhat.

Okay, so first you lift the shell up a little. Then you pull away from the oval shaped thing at about a 15 degree angle (I know I said 30 earlier, but I rethought it). The shell should then slide out.

Ok cool, can you then put the shell back into the oval thing to re-assemble the gun?

Dip the handle in boiling water for a few minutes. This may loosen up the glue holding together so that you can pry it off without otherwise damaging it.

I tried doing what soccerbeast said but I could not pull it out no matter how far I pried it up and pulled. The back of the handle also appears to be glued together or something. I was able to pry the gun far enough apart to take the plunger out so hopefully I can mod it then but it back in with having to dismantle the gun. If anyone else has suggestions on how to get the gun apart they would be appreciated.

Edit: I got the plunger out and knocked out the air restrictor and barrel post thing then put it back in the gun the best I could while prying the gun open with a screw driver. I don't think it shoots as far now and it doesn't work quite the same either. I still need to find a way to get the two pieces apart. Suggestions are appreciated, thanks to those who made suggestions.

Ok, I am still having troubles taking the gun apart and modding it. I would still like other suggestions on how to disassemble the gun. If you have done this before please post how you did it.

Cut off the gray part with a hacksaw.

If I do that will the gun go back together?

You should but if you can't you could just hotglue and E-tape it together at the bottom.

I don't want to have to e-tape my gun together because then it will be a tacky mess.

Still need suggestions for taking apart a nerf eliminator.

Have you done it before?
I will probably try it, how long should I keep it in water?

Well, if you do decide to cut it, then I would suggest using a dremel. You will get a much cleaner and straighter cut than a hacksaw, as previously mentioned.

Not on an eliminator, but it has worked for other guns that have pieces glued together. I would give it 15 seconds, then try to pull it off. If that doesn't work, give it 30 seconds, and so on. You want to be a bit careful when using this method, as it can warp the plastic.

Thanks daniel, I will try this soon and hopefully it will work. If that loosens the glue and I can just pull the gun apart will I then be able to snap the gun together again.

Thanks guys, I also have one other question. :P

How do I reinforce the catch on my Buzz Bee RFR?

You can try using a blowdryer to heat up the pieces and loosen the bond of the glue.

As for your second question, remove the original catch spring and replace it with a spring from a pen that is a bit longer. Then hot glue the spring on so it is harder to compress.

I tried using a blow dryer on the hottest setting and it did not help so next I will try boiling water when I get the chance. Edit, I also tried running a dremel along the seams where it was glued but I did not go deep and it didn't help any.

Thanks, where would I put the hot glue at? Just glue the end of it to the wall it compresses against?

Put the hot glue inside the spring, and while it is still warm put it back on the peg where it originally was.

Will the spring still compress like that?

Yeah, that only strengthening the catch, not reinforcing it.

you need to cover the white piece (the actual catch) with some epoxy putty
