My first mav seems to be malfunctioning. It seems as if the cylinder is not rotating all the way into position. I am getting very regular misfires do to this. I can't be 100% sure but it looks as if the darts are getting caught on the leading edge of the barrel because it is not rotating fully. Is there anything I can do to solve this?

PS Yes, I am a noob to Nerf.

Cut a quarter of an inch off of the back of each dart.

I solved that issue very recently. It was very easy to fix, but not so easy to deduce how to do so.

The little critters of nature, they don't know that they're ugly. That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumble bee. I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me. Why didn't you believe me?

With the Mav, you can also get the results you're describing if you pull the trigger too fast. Try pulling it smoothly and see if that gets rid of your problems.

Ya like in CaptainSlug's thread, try adding a bigger spring to push the trigger forward, or relocating it.

I was actually reading that thread earlier and wondered if that would solve it but I just wasn't sure (hence this thread).

You have been exceedingly helpful. Thanks, everyone!
