I'm new to the forums, but it seems like this is probably the best place to post this question.

I recently picked up a Deploy CS-6 at a thrift store and it fires every single time you try it if it's loaded manually one dart at a time. However, if you load a clip into the gun it only fires about 5% of the time. It doesn't matter if the clip has 1 dart or 6, it will rarely fire. It does seem to fire better a little better with only 1 dart loaded but not much better. It also fires with the same success rate, clip or not, in the upwards position and the deployed position. The clip I'm using isn't the original that came with the gun, and I was wondering if the newer clips are maybe made slightly different in some way? I don't have an old one to compare it to right now, but it seems like they're the same except the new one has a clear side and a solid colored side instead of two solid colored sides.

If it's not the clip, what else might it be? Any help someone could offer would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Ink625

Pictures would be very helpful: it is often hard to diagnose a problem with only a description.

Also, what darts are you using?

What do you mean by 'only firing 5% of the time'?
Does the catch not release, does it not prime...

I can't post pics right this second, but I've tried it with streamline and elite darts.

To Mully:

Sorry I didn't elaborate in my original post. What I mean by 5% of the time is for every 100 or so attempted shots, it will usually only fire a handful of times, give or take and everything seems to work the same mechanically whether it fires or not. However, sometimes the dart just falls out the end of the barrel, sometimes the darts jam, sometimes the dart goes to the end of the barrel and doesn't come out, and sometimes the dart doesn't even come out of the clip. It fires 100% perfect every single time though when I load it manually 1 dart at a time instead of using a clip.

Check your dart tooth. Look down the barrel without any ammo or mags in the blaster, and prime it. If a little thing pops up and blocks the barrel when the handle is in the back position, and then drops back down when the handle is pushed back forward, then your dart tooth is working. If something doesn't pop up when you prime it, then it's a different problem. However, based on your description, I'd say this is the problem.

I agree with the Dart tooth inclination.


If it is anything else....

Burn it.

Keep in mind though, since it seems you are new to the hobby, friendly advice, the Deploy is a seriously annoying blaster to work with, and performance wise there is only so much that can be done to it. While it seems very tacticool, it is not worth the hassle, try and find something else if you can.

Griever 2112 still plays with his alpha trooper quite often despite owning one of the scariest +bows.

I'm actually trying to fix the gun for someone else, but I definitely see your point with all the moving/rotating parts and what not. I'd still like to get it fixed though, preferably without taking it apart, but that seems fairly unlikely at this point.

The Deploy is one son of a gun to reassemble once taken apart.

added 12-hours later, if you are not experienced in modding Nerf guns, then if you disassemble the Deploy, you will (very most highly) probably not get it back together in a working mode.
Or in simpler words, totally bugger it up.

After looking at photos of the internals, I would definitely agree it looks like it would be very tricky to reassemble. I may or may not try it, but I really don't have a whole lot to lose since I only paid 40 cents for the gun. I'll let everyone know how it plays out if I decide to disassemble. Thanks

It is my understanding that some deploys were actually shipped from the factory with some sort of defect that doesn't allow them to fire properly. I have had a couple (and a few of my friends have found them too) right out of the box, they just don't work.

I followed this video to clean out my Deploy and do the AR removal.

It only took 2 tries but I got it back together in working order.

This has exploded pictures of the Deploy, so it may be helpful to you.
