My Son's birthday is coming up in about a month, and the only thing I can think to give him is a modified maverick. He has already done 2 modifications to his gun, the one where the barrel swings out all the way, and he took out the air restrictors (I don't know what that means <_< ). So I need you guys to add more tutorials of mods for me to do to the maverick I bout for him. I want to do as many mods as possible on the gun so that it is AMAZING!

Check the mod directory. This lists all mods, and just look under Maverick

I would have to recommend a spring replacement and possibly a barrel replacement. If you search around you should definately be able to find tutorials and write-ups on how to do those modifications. You should also do the same modifications that he did to his maverick, to his new maverick. Try painting it his favorite color as well. Hope that helped.

^Click the link above my post to find out how to do the modifications that I talked about.

Step 1. Take the spring out of the Maverick.
Step 2. Buy a spring from Lt. Stefan.
Step 3. When the spring arrives, put that in place of where the Maverick spring used to be.

Step 4: Replace the cocking bar with a bolt, or it will break.

Everything that Dr. Spaceman said was correct. After you order, or buy a spring from a hardware store, you should replace the spring, but you have to remember to reinforce or replace the metal rod that is in the priming mechanism. It is very prone to snapping if you have a stronger spring. Again, the modification directory should have write-ups on how to reinforce a maverick.

EDIT: 1337 beat me to it.

If you replace the spring in a maverick, be VERY prepared fro it to break within a month of heavy use. The cocking pin can not handle the stress. Once it breaks, drill holes on both sides of the cocking handle where the pin used to be, run a long bolt through it and put nuts on the ends, then it'll never break again. Or you could just do the bolt thing before it breaks.

1337 is correct. You must reinforce the cocking bar.

Hella, another Nerfer with kids!

There is a lot of talk about spring replacement but barrel replacement will be key because there is not a very good seal between the components of the barrel mechanism. There are writes ups for that as well.

If your son is doing mods like the roulette barrel, maybe you should consider getting him a set of tools so you two can mod together.
