My sons Rapidstrike seems to have an issue preventing it from revving up the fly wheels. I noticed the white arm in the upper loading bay (actual name?) is extended and we think it is stuck? How can this white arm get retracted? I tried pushing what appear to be locking levers or switches on the inside of the gun but no luck yet.

Anyone else with this issue or perhaps solution?

Much thanks in advance!

the pusher is stuck probably do some locks or something maybe a short i will be able to help you if you send a picture of the internals of the rapidstrike but a good start would be looking up basic mod guides and removing the locks electronic and mechanical

This, unfortunately (if you are not mechanically inclined) most likely means you will have to open up your blaster and physically return the arm to it's home position. Somehow or another, something on the inside got screwed up, and it wont return to the home position. This may/may not be the case, but something is causing the arm to stay put (it should return on its own, as the Rapidstrike has a "three switch setup"). Other locks indeed could very well be preventing the flywheels from revving, but there are a multitude of locks inside a stock Nerf blaster that prevent kids from being harmed from improper usage. One of the locks is probably connected to the pusher arm, but there are others that also detect magazine insertion and jamdoor state (open/closed).


Your issue could be any one of these, and like I say, the best way to figure something out is to open it up. Here is a link to another post on Nerfhaven with a useful guide to all the safety locks and many useful internal pictures of the Rapidstrike for you to assess your condition.
