If you break a magstrike, like I did today, {the little thing that makes the cartridge move up] and you didn't break the bladder or pump system, then here is a little way to turn it into something useful. I assume that you broke it by trying to mod it, like me. I don't know how mine broke and I sat for an hour trying to work with it with no avail.
So grab these materials:
Hot glue, epoxy, or other strong glue.
Strong tape of some kind.
Canola oil or some other lubricant.
Electrical tape. [e-tape]
A drill with some bits or a Philips head and a hammer.
A saw or very sharp knife of some kind.
Some barrel material and darts that go with it.
A sharp knife.

From the totaled magstrike:

The pump handle and rod.
The chamber which the rod fits into

Okay. There will be some tubes in your way to get out these pieces, so either rip them out or slash them. Also, if you don't have the green nub near the pump handle out yet, hack it out or gently pry it off with a knife or a flat head. In the end, you should have two plastic pieces, with one that fits in to the other. The rod is recognizable with an o-ring around it, kind of like a plugger head on a spring gun. The air chamber that the rod fits into will look like a giant plugger chamber. You will only want these pieces.

You will notice the green nub and another grey piece on the rod. Grab a screw driver and take out the two screws on the handle and split the handle in two halves. Now remove the nub and other piece. Re assemble the handle.

On the chamber, or, plugger chamber in this case, go to the side that has the nub deal sticking out and cut it off with your tools. Now grab your drill or hammer and screw driver and blow out the piece that is in the chamber until you can see through it. Now, grab your barrel material and stick it on the place where the nub deal used to be, and then glue it on nice and straight. Re-in-force it as much as you like.

Now grab your e-tape and plugger rod. Take off the o-ring and wash the rod and ring off, and then dry. Now rap 3 layers of e-tape where the o-ring used to be. Now put the ring back on, and drench in lubricant.

Now insert a dart in the barrel, stick in the rod and you can use it sort of like a pop gun. It can be pretty powerful if you use the right combination of glue/barrel/dart. I used PETG/ CDTS/ Hot glue, so it was bad, about 15 or so flat, but if you use something like PETG/ red FBR Stefan/ epoxy, you have a little weapon now instead of a completely totaled gun! Sorry I have no pics, but I may put them up later.

You should try something like this: http://nerfmodders.t...utnerf/id7.html . Unless you already did, and I didn't understand.

I'm glad to see you didn't leave because you thought other people wanted you to. That would have been pathetic.

That's cool blister. I don't have that gun though unfortunately or I would be doing it.

Well that gun (Powerclip) is literally basically the same exact thing as a magstrike. I'm sure you could do that mod to the magstrike, you'd just need to cut the shell down a little.

Oh and precision nerfer, my friend was looking on ebay and goes, "oh that gun is sick" and I looked over to the computer to see your camo painted NF.

He is really thinking about buying it....

Which one? The dune camo or the water blue camo? Oh and BTW, it was my brother's magtrike and the parts are now in the trash so no pics. Of course this was not to be phenomenal mod but hey it will make something from a dead magstrike.
