Darts won't fire ¶ 

After pumping the gun and pulling the trigger, nothing happens.

Empty Chamber ¶ 

Be sure that you have remaining darts in the chamber.

Barrel clogged ¶ 

Look inside the barrel. If there are darts stuck inside, remove them. If you cannot remove the blockage, use our guide on [invalid guide link], and push the blockage through.

Large spring needs replacing ¶ 

If the previous issues have been resolved with no success, open up the Nerf gun. You will see a large spring towards the top of the gun. Remove the spring for replacement.

Chamber holding darts does not rotate ¶ 

When pulling the trigger, the chamber does not rotate.

Dart stuck between barrel and chamber ¶ 

There may be a dart that did not fire properly and is halfway between the chamber and barrel. Use a long tool to push the dart through the barrel. If you cannot remove the blockage, use our guide to separate the chamber and barrel.

Clogged with dirt ¶ 

Open up the gun. Remove the chamber, and wipe it down with a wet cloth.

Trigger mechanism sticks ¶ 

After pulling the trigger, it remains stuck in place.

Clogged with dirt ¶ 

Open the gun and remove the trigger. Wipe down the trigger and attached mechanism with a wet cloth.

Spring malfunction ¶ 

Open the gun. There is a small spring located next to the trigger. Remove it and replace.

Pieces misaligned ¶ 

Open the gun. In some cases, the trigger mechanism may have moved and is now misaligned. Remove the part and put back in proper alignment.

Pump is jammed ¶ 

When you try to pump the gun, it won't move.

Clogged with dirt ¶ 

In some cases, dirt can get clogged in the pump mechanism. Open up the gun. Take a wet cloth and wipe down the pump mechanisms.

Pump track jammed ¶ 

Open up the gun. When the gun is pumped, the small orange bar that sits on the lower part of the pump is pushed in. In some cases this piece can be bent. Remove it and replace with a straight part.

Pump moves freely ¶ 

The pump does not catch, but instead moves freely.

The gun has already been pumped ¶ 

When the gun has been pumped, the pump will then move freely on the track. Fire the gun by pulling the trigger, and it shouldn't move freely anymore.

Large spring not attached ¶ 

Open up the gun. Check and see if thelarge spring towards the top of the gun is connected properly. If not, remove and realign it.

Pump track fractured ¶ 

The long orange piece on the bottom of the pump track may be fractured. If you cannot see a fracture from the outside of the gun, take apart the pump and look inside. If it is fractured, remove it and replace the part.
