How to Take Apart and Mod Nerf Dual-Strike

If you’re looking to get more out of your Nerf guns, modding is a great way to do it. You can swap out some of the internal components of your Nerf gun to get faster, further dart shots. We’ll show you how to take apart a Nerf Dual-Strike, a new Nerf gun for 2016.

If you’re looking to mod your Strongarm Blaster, we suggest you take a look at the Strongarm Mod kit below, which will have all the parts and instructions you need to mod your Nerf Strongarm.

Taking Apart the Nerf Dual-Strike

First things first – you have a bunch of small Phillips head screws you can access on the left side of the Blaster. This small screwdriver kit works great for these screws. All of them are the same length, other than the two up on the Tactical Rail, which makes things easy for reassembly.

Once you get the screws out, pry off the top piece of the shell (grabbing by the barrels worked best for me), and you’ll be able to see the insides. You can see this Blaster uses a red Mega plunger system that feeds into a white diverting mechanism to direct the airflow from one set of barrels to the other.

Here’s a closer shot of the triggering mechanism. Be careful not to lose the small spring that sits in the cavity behind the red tube! It can easily go flying out of that slot, so I’d suggest pulling it out and setting it aside for now.

From this shit you can also clearly see two air hole slots that reduce the power of the Blaster. Sealing these with electrical tape, duct tape, or epoxy would be a good way to get more out of your Dual-Strike.

If you want to remove the barrels or plunger system, you first need to take off this top white piece of the air diverter. There’s two small screws (the only screws on the inside of the Blaster), as well as two small tabs holding this piece in place.

If you’re interested in how the Dual-Strike switching mechanism works, here it is! The switch flips this hole between the different routes to the barrels.

You can pry the barrels off the shell just by pulling upwards. The orange Elite barrels slide forward to separate from the red Mega barrels.

There’s some additional air holes on these barrels that you can seal to add a little extra power to your shots. Be aware that if you use tape, it may be visible when the gun is reassembled.
