Please help, me and my friend were trying to mod a maverick. We followed pretty much ever instruction and now the gun wont shoot.

Alright this is what we did. We took out the air restrictors and thing with the spicky thing. And cut up a foam dart and filled in the spaces where the air ristrictors were. So now when we put it all togeather. it doesnt fire.

Plesae help!

wen i shoot it, i can feel a bit of air. There is Nothing blocking it. What are we doing wrong?

is my marverick junk now?

thanx in advance.

What mod did you follow? That would help a lot.

It sounds like you blocked of the airways. Did you completely cover the air holes with foam? If you did, that's why it isn't shooting.

Bad seal in the turret most likely, I honestly don't see why people don't just cut out the restrictors instead of putting foam in there, if you've still got the plastic sticks cut them out in the middle and put them back in(only the bottom circle needs to go back in).

If you post pictures, we could help you alot more- it's hard to tell the problem from your descriptions alone.

And please...come on, I don't mean to be anal or everything and I'm not a post-whoring newb but this thread is really annoying me due to the lack of respect to your english teachers. Let's keep the posts at least at a 7th grade level. I mean, we are, all at least 13, right?

And in any case, I didn't bother with modding my Mav at all even though I might resort to plugging up maybe one of the air restrictors. For the effort, it's not really worth the extra distance you'll be getting but that's my general opinion.

Yes, pictures.

i dont know what you mean about respect to my english teachers. I really dont care about any writting typos, since i actually have a life and got better things to do besides triple checking all my posts. Stop being such an E-thug, and tolerate it.

as for the maverick, yeah i think im going to acept the fact that its broken, thanx anyways guys.

As stated in the code of conduct it is a rule that you use proper puncuation and spelling among other things and you can have your account deleted with little or no warning if you break a rule. I suggest you read the whole thing carefully, it doesn't take but 3 minutes and you have the bonus of know the rules. Have a nice day.
