Nerf RapidStrike Review, Internals, and Locks Removal
Posted 09 August 2013 - 10:44 PM
Everything about it is very nice. Here are some photos before the internals and locks removal.
It has the Stryfe's wonderful, middle-finger magazine release button.
The foregrip seems Magpul inspired.
The stock has two settings: all the way out, and all the way in. It's quite comfortable, and one can actually get his face low enough to look through the ghost-ring sights.
In stock form, it fires roughly 216 darts per minute, which is quite a bit faster than a Stampede. I feature both of those in my review video, in case you're interested.
The flywheels: standard stuff.
The rectangular box that is above the trigger is the dart pusher. It works like this.
This is what it looks like when it is split open.
The worm gear on the end of this motor spins this gear on the bottom of the metal bar.
The small gear spins a large disc, which in turn moves the dart pusher back and forth. This video quickly explains it.

If you want to be able to fire your blaster without the magazine in, you will have to remove the locks preventing it from doing so.
You will need to remove the white piece and the sensor it triggers. Snip both red wires that attach to it and solder them together.
Now you will need to remove the white piece and its minions. Take out the screw that is left of the pictured circuit board. Then remove the circuit board. I suggest doing this by bowing the small orange tab outwards with a small screwdriver, such as I am doing in this photo.
Then remove the circuit board.
Now hold this piece open while removing both white pieces pictured below. Needle nose pliers are quite helpful.
Now you can fire your blaster without magazines.
And here is my review of this blaster.
