Nerf-brand rifles are assembled to mimic a level of authenticity similar to the real weapon. To take the bolt handle off the Nerf Longshot CS-6, in order to clean the firing mechanism, for one example, partially disassemble the Nerf rifle. The procedure is safe since the Longshot does not use any gunpowder or any explosive propellant to shoot its foam missiles. You will need a few household tools for the procedure.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Wire cutter

  1. 1

    Place the Longshot CS-6 on a table with the barrel facing to the left. Remove the six screws from the top, bottom and sides of the stock, using a Phillips screwdriver.

  2. 2

    Remove the 21 screws from along the top edge, bottom edge, front and back of the Longshot, using the Phillips screwdriver.

  3. 3

    Pull the Long shot's cover shell off, using your hands. Place the cover shell aside.

  4. 4

    Pull the orange cylinder, attached to the bolt sled assembly and closest to the stock, out of the Longshot. Place the cylinder on its side with the thin rod that is at one end facing left.

  5. 5

    Place the butt of the Phillips screwdriver against the metal pin sticking out from the top of the blackened part of the cylinder. Hold the cylinder against the table with one hand as you push the pin into the cylinder, using the screwdriver.

  6. 6

    Grip the pin coming out of the bottom of the cylinder. Pull the pin out of the cylinder and place it aside. Separate the yellow plastic bar from the bottom of the cylinder and place it aside.

  7. 7

    Pull the bolt assembly out of the right end of the cylinder, using your fingers. Place the bolt assembly on the table so that the cap which has a protrusion at its centre is facing right.

  8. 8

    Snip off the three plastic clips on the cap that is facing left, using a wire cutter. Twist the cap off the assembly. Shake the bolt handle, along with other parts, out of the open end of the bolt assembly.

Tips and warnings

  • Place the screws in a coffee cup so that they don't get lost.
  • Never point any gun, real or toy, that shoots a projectile at a person or pet, or take it out into the public.
