Hey im just now getting into nerf guns and i want to do everything and anything i can do to my maverick. i have made the barrel or so that it comes out more for easier loading. And thats all. But i want more power and distance. Would putting in a better spring work or do any good? i was hoping i could get a list of mods and links to were i can learn to do them too. thanks

Just go to the modifications directory and scroll down to Nerf guns then scroll down to maverick, theres about five or six mods there, plus two integrations.

What is the best way to go at removing a stump without any power tools? Thanks ahead of time!

The Mav sucks, its good if only a stock war, but otherwise it sucks.
Since your new, try and get a NiteFinder from Walmart, or a Airtech 2000 from Kohls.

The mav is hard to modify because of it's clip (the revolving turret). and the insides of it are kinda big for a gun so theres not much to do...

Try searching "at2k mav" or "mav no limits".
Those 2 will keep you occupied.

Well, the Mav may be you poison, but look at this.

Nitefinder
Pros:
Cheaper
Ammo holders
Laser :o
Easier to mod
More mods
Shoots farther
Can double barrel it
Cons:
Less ROF (rate of fire)
You don't have it right now

Maverick[b]
Pros:
Looks cool
Cheap aswell
Removable barrels
Whole "revolver" feel is kickass!
You have it now
More ROF

Cons:
More expensive
Harder to mod
Barely goes far
Pain in the ass to mod (again)
Bulky as HELL

So really, its your choice, but I'd go with the NiteFinder. :D

I've successfully modded 4 Nitefinders, and 0 Mavs...although I"ve broken 2 mavs, and 0 NF's. That right there should tell you enough.

Definitly, I mean, I've screwed up my NF, but havent returned it yet... But I fucked up my Mav over 5-6 times and returned to walmart.

It really just depends on what you want: ROF or range. The Maverick can get off 6 shots in a relatively short amount of time, but unless they are fairly close to you, your not going to hit them. With the Nite, you get one shot that, with good mods, can reach 60-70 ft, or more.

All 3 of my Mavs and their clips get in the 40-45 range. And with an ROF like that, its not bad.
We should stop calling out/making fun of/pissing GC off. He's actually contributed and is available for trade. He's a better than average member no doubt. Got your back Cole.

Search. Many people have various mods, including stocks and heavy mods. There's even a couple of Nitemav's floating around the boards.

Carrtoon's Nitemav is amazing, it's on NerfHQ but there is a link to it in the modifications directory. If you choose to stick with just the mav, there are planty of options in the directory.

I actually started modding with my mav. I did the free swinging barrel mod then took out the restrictors, then added an extra spring. (It's from the LS sidearm, so you have to cut down the back of the plunger a little bit. no biggy) Because of it's ROF and looks, I would say that it is a better starter then the nf but once you really get into it, a NF is more beneficial due to all of the stuff you can do to mod it.
