    has anyone ever modded a nerf maverick into a rifle?

    I am attempting to make a nerf maverick pistol into a rifle, and I didn't know if anyone else had done it.

    in short yes, I can't off the top of my head remember who it was or where I found it, pretty sure it was over on the mercs but it turned into an amazing piece

    depends... what style barrel are you wanting? PVC pipes are usually a good, cheap barrel for most anything... but it really depends on the style of barrel you want.

    Re: has anyone ever modded a nerf maverick into a rifle?

    I made my son a revolving sniper rifle out of one after he decided he wanted a Borderlands style sniper for his custom Mando kit.



    Not the best pic, but I can't find the other ones I have of it at the moment. It's made from a Maverick, a cheapo squirt gun, some PVC, some sintra, and a bunch of epoxy and glues.

    For the barrel, I think it uses 1 inch PVC. It fit perfectly over the original "barrel" and even allows it to still fire (somewhat...darts sometimes hit the sides and don't make it all the way out).

    Definitely post the pics. Always nice to see how people mod NERF things to look "not-so-NERF". Nothing bugs me more than an un-modified repaint of a stock NERF (or airsoft or whatever...mod it up ).

    Now that's the kind of parts list I love seeing. Gotta love epoxy and epoxy putty. You can make just about anything out of that stuff.

    Looking forward to seeing this finished and painted up.

    I've made the stock from an oak plank, but It is a little too long.I am going to cut it down and re-router the d-bracket recess

    Re: has anyone ever modded a nerf maverick into a rifle?

    hey one thing I'd suggest... if you're going to keep that long barrel cover it with something. Put some ventribs or something on it to make it look beefier, it just looks so scrawny with the bulk of the rest of the piece. Great work tho... still looks like a maverick but enough difference to say it would probably pass.

    I'm going to cut some slots in a piece of pvc conduit and slide that over the "barrel", or Maybe add some dowels or something

    Solus Keer at Mando Mercs (I think his stuff is under One End here) and Beviin Verhayc at Mercs both did great mods with the Maverick. Beviin's was made into a custom EE-3. Solus' was a custom carbine. Both turned out great. Most people don;t even catch Beviin's was a Nerf until he points it out.
