Well I finally found a few old guns and came across my least favorite of the entire n-strike set.
What I want to know is if you can do this but keep the auto advance function unlike the mod in the directory.

help anybody?

It would not work because the wholes that the air goes through would not match up and fire a dart. And i am not shure if it would rotate.

The Firefly, from my understanding, shoots 8 darts instead of 6, earning it the name Firefly REV-8. That means the size of the rotating clip would also be slightly, if not significantly, larger on the Firefly. Hope this helps.

Well what if you were to replicate the internals of the maverick with firefly internals and maybe keep the spring from the maverick? would that work?

That would be the only reason to put a firefly clip on it.
I'm sure you could cut the bars at the top and bottom to work with the new clip.
Maybe replace them with a few pieces of plastic if it's to much to just dremel out.

Aside from the obvious problem of the turrets being different sizes and therefore the barrels not lining up with the Maverick's plunger...I believe that you would not be able to do this kind of mod and use the existing turret rotating mechanism on the Maverick.

In addition to the obvious fact that the Firefly and Maverick turrets are differently mounted, the Mav's rotating mech has a hex head--meant for 6 turns since the Mav shoots 6 darts but the Firefly shoots 8.

So no. Do you have a Firefly? Use that instead, it auto-advances and uses a regular plunger.



EDIT: Have you even looked and compared their internals?? You can't just "replicate" the Maverick's internals with the Firefly's internals and then fit it in the Maverick.

It sounds like you just want to add dart capacity to your Maverick. Either do the drop-clip mod, or get a Furyfire.

Also keep in mind that the one turret rotates farther each shot than the other one. If you are going to replace all the internals of a maverick with a firefly, why keep the spring? Plus, I doubt the plunger tube would meet up correctly.

You could just replace the rotation mech. Just from holding up a Maverick and the turret of a Firefly I can tell it will fit without too much cutting. All that's left is to see if the rotation mech will fit inside. I think you should go for it, could be fun.

Because they secrete some sort of fluid that automatically makes their mods work?

Anyway...It's certainly possible, it would just take more work then expected, and the gain would not be terribly high. It would be fun to attempt, so go for it!

So then by your logic- if you, 'thedecimator', attempt any significant modifications, or, in fact, even think of a difficult modification, it will naturally fail.

Cool man, decimate more modifications, and don't fucking automatically trash a something as simple as an idea. All of the above were new at one point, and went through countless tries to become fantastic at modifications.

Kindly, fuck off.

Back on topic, I'm actually pretty sure you could make it work, but I doubt that you would be able to keep the auto-advancing w/o a ton of dremeling.

What's this for, btw? I ask only because botht the FF and Mav generally suck, even with heavy mods...

If you want a maverick with more shots, the Furyfire is basically just that, only it has 10 shots. You could minimize a Furyfire to make it smaller and it'd be just as good as a maverick with a Firefly turret, with less hassle.

I have all the parts plus shell for a maverick but no turret
And I hate fireflys so I don't really care if I accidentally destroy one trying it

EDIT: I didn't mean to double post
