Nerf N-Strike Barricade RV-10 mod guide

The Barricade is perfect for dual wielding. It's only issue is that it's setup to fire whistler darts, this means the flywheels are placed too far apart to fire streamliners or Elite darts well... MOD TIME!

In this guide I'll be covering:
- taping the flywheels
- removing electrical nannies
- removing locks
- trigger pull flywheel activation (optional)

Firstly we'll need to take the blaster apart, the screws are the same size so you won't need to remember where they went.




Then we'll need to take out the jam door, to do this we'll need to remove some of the screws on the dart pusher and jam door lock...



Now you can remove the cover for the wires going to the motors...


Now take out the flywheel assembly...

And take off the top cover...

Now take out the motors themseleves by removing the 4 screws on the back...

Then we'll tape up the flywheels...


Now use wire cutters to remove the resistors from the flywheels. Also cut out the kill switch that was in the jam door, strip 10mm from the ends then twist together and wrap with electrical tape.

Then reattach the wires feeding power to the motors, be sure to mark where the red and blue wires go BEFORE removing the resistors from the motors, also mark the dart's travel direction on the housing too. Once the wires are secured, solder in place.

Now, using wire cutters, remove the thermal resistor (thermalsistor) from the battery well...

Then strip 10mm of wire and reattach the wire directly to the terminal, then solder in place...

Now cut the tooth off of the jam door lock and put it back in its place...

You could also remove the lock attached to the on/off switch on the side of the blaster as well, but, in my opinion, why would you want to be able to pull the trigger if it's not turned on? This is all that needs to be done for most people, you can now reassemble the blaster, be sure to remember what goes where when you're taking it apart. The Barricade should now fire Elite and streamliners well.

The next mod will only work well if you've at least doubled the volts going into the blaster.

Take the kill switch that we removed from the jam door and remove the wires from the terminals. Of the three terminals on switch, (with the button at the top) we want to use the middle and bottom terminal. Attach a length of wire to each (middle and bottom) then cut a hole out of the plastic guide under the trigger for the button. Then hot glue the switch into place and connect one switch wire to the motor feed wire and the other to the batteries, making sure that the wires don't interfere with the internal mechanics. You could hot glue the wires in place. Once you've tested the electronics and are happy with the result, solder the wires to secure the connections. We shouldn't need to touch the blue wire, as this goes directly to the motors.


Now reassemble the blaster.
