|1||Take the drum clip apart from the nerf gun by pressing the orange lever, located above the trigger, and pulling the drum out of it's place in the gun.
|2||There are 5 screws (indicated by the orange boxes) in the cocking mechanism. By taking the screws out of the cocking mechanism and taking the cocking mechanism off of the frame, you can take off the rear cap (indicated by the green box), take out the 11 screws on the frame (indicated by the blue boxes) and separate the frames into two parts.
It is possible that the manufacturer might have enabled the easy removal of the cocking mechanism and frame in order for a consumer to customize the gun, such as coloring it, but it looks like the screws are the cheapest alternative to connecting the frames.
|3||You will now have two parts of a frame. The trigger components (indicated by the green box in picture A)are held together by 4 screws (indicated by the blue boxes in picture B) and a spring (indicated by the yellow bow in picture B). By taking out the screws and the springs, you can take out all the trigger components.
|4||You know can see two main components of the gun, the coil (in picture A) and the chamber (in picture B).||A)B)|
|5||After close observation and awkward placement of a screwdriver, it is possible to remove the chamber from the gun. Now you can see how the chamber and it's components work together and how they connect to the rest of the gun.
|6||To take apart the drum, take out the 6 screws on the top of the drum (indicated by the white boxes and arrow) and remove the orange stem and black cap. Upon removing the orange stem, a spring and orange cap will be released. Take out the 4 screws on the bottom cover (indicate by the white boxes in picture B) and remove the bottom cover
|7||Now you can see the components that make up the trigger for the reloading mechanism. Taking off the spring (indicated by the yellow box) lets the reloading trigger (indicated by the purple box) free. You can now take the trigger, spring, and rod (indicated by the blue box) off. Now, take out the 6 screws (indicated by the white boxes) and take off the black lid.
|8||You should not have the components shown in pictures A and B.||A)B)|
|9||By taking out the 4 screws (indicated by the white boxes) on the orange lid, you will release the 3 other springs and spring caps. Your result should like look picture B.
|10||Once you remove the springs, you have an empty barrel and you can see the design that is intended to keep the disc bullets in place.|
