Introduction

In 1969, Reyn Guyer created a polyurethane foam ball that he brought to the toymaker "Parker Brothers". By the end of 1970, Parker Brothers had sold over 4 million of these foam balls and would soon create its own entity and become the company we know today as "Nerf". The brand "Nerf" currently owned by Hasbro now estimates annual incomes of over 400 million dollars each year. Nerf solely manufactures products using foam, plastic, and rubber and make anything ranging from super soakers to video games. In this guide, you will learn how to replace the catch spring for the "Nerf Lawbringer 2169" so that the gun can properly operate again.
