Question about Nerf Nite Finder

Open Question

We have a Nerf Nitefinder gun and it doesn't work properly. You can load it but to get it to fire properly you have to hold the dart in slightly. Otherwise the gun fires about 10cm

SOURCE: Nerf Vulcan won't auto-fire

I had the same problem with two guns out of the box. Turned out that the dividers in the battery tray kept the batteries from touching each other on some brands of batteries. Remove the dividers and should work. You can verify this by measuring the voltage on the two terminals of the battery pack.

SOURCE: Stampede ECS won't fire the

I had this same problem. Well, actually after I modded it. I hope you are good with your hands, because this takes effort.

Unscrew the casing and open the gun (remember to take the battery pack out and have the two plates together so that the wire connecting them doesn't break).

When you see the plating covering the plunger (spring) system take it off, it has about 5 screws.

Since this is extrememly hard to explain in words, look at an internet picture of the internal plunger system. The way it works is that when the spring/tube goes forward (as the motor operates) the 'plunder' (the white thing) stays back. As the orange tube goes forward it triggers and release mechanism that fires the plunger forward due to spring pressure, compressing the air, therefore firing the bullet.

All you have to do (which is what I did) is insert a clip (with the plates open), make sure the jam door is closed, and put the battery pack in (to complete the circuit). Do a bunch of test runs to make sure the white plunger is shooting forward as the mechanism operates.

This will all make sense once you activate the gun without base plates.

Email me at dluzzio@gmail.com if you complete it, have questions and/or comments.

I hope it helped!

PS- while you're at it, you might as well look for online instructions on how to mod the air restrictor (as I am too lazy to write a few more paragraphs!).

SOURCE: How many and what type

Wow, this is hands on the dumbest question EVER.

You know, no offense or anything...

Look- this is a manually operated toy.

Unless you or I got the name screwed up, or that picture up above is incorrect...

Oh wait, I just looked at it on Amazon.

Two solutions-

1.) READ THE INSTRUCTIONS, THEY'RE THERE FOR A REASON!!!

2.) Pull the cocking slide on top of the gun back, after inserting a bullet. Pull the trigger to fire.

That's all!!!

Oh yeah, 1+1=2, in case you didn't know that either.

LOL just kidding!!!

Good luck (idk why)...

There are multiple factors in the inconsistency of your product's functioning.

1.) You have not successfully screwed in the battery cartridge tight enough so as the metal conductors are touching (with pressure).

2.) Your batteries are dead or almost dead.

3.) You put 4 bullets in your clip - kidding :)

4.) The circuitry may not be high quality, was your gun tampered with or from an unreliable source?

5.) Your jam door may not be high quality and could often slip from its locking point, I'd suggest taping it momentarily to keep pressure on it just to see if this is the case.

6.) The clip may be loosely in also, I'd also look into that.

If your gun stopped working permanently- I'd suggest looking inside at the white plunger, and the parts that release it from its pressurized position. There are many diagrams on the internet of the internals for it.

SOURCE: HELP!!! My nerf gun maverick is broken.? when i

I had the same problem too. Try opening it up and looking at some online pictures and compare them, if you still cant find the problem and you have the receipt, take the unit back where you got it from. Look at the springs really closely my maverick was broken due to a spring that slid out of its elevated piece of plastic. I fixed it lubricated some parts and put it back to together. It works great now. :)

What are toy blasters? My nephew asked me to buy him one for his birthday


Toy blasters include toys such as nerf guns. they are a variation on the classic toy gun and look more like a paintballing type toy. Toy blasters usually come with darts of some kind to shoot at 'the enemy'. These darts are made from sponge or other soft material so that they can't hurt anyone.

My kid opened the Nerf N-strike Recon CS-6, loaded darts in the clip, shot it a few rounds, and now, somehow, the cocking mechanism is stuck in the middle position, and so is the trigger (like...


Take the rear bolt cover off ( 2 screws) . Reach inside with your finger and try spinning the spring. For some reason the spring will eventually move to a position that when compacted will bind with the bolt pass through hole.
