The Nerf Strongarm has lots of features that make it a desirable candidate for modifications. These include an easily reloaded cylinder, slam-fire capabilities, a tactical rail on top, and a loop for carrying attachments. However, the main factor that allows the Nerf Strongarm to claim this title is the blaster’s simplicity; the blaster is easily disassembled and the internal workings are not overly complicated.
There are plenty of different modifications to choose from for your Strongarm; each mod improves the blaster differently. To determine which modification is the right choice for your Nerf Strongarm blaster, keep reading for all of the best Nerf Strongarm mods.
Easy Mod by NBP
While elaborate Nerf mods can produce great results, they can also be costly and time-consuming. If you are experienced in modding Nerf guns, a more complex mod could be easy for you to complete. However, if you are just learning how to mod a Nerf blaster, then an easy–and less expensive–mod is the right way to go.
The mod featured below is completed on the Nerf Disruptor. However, because the internal workings of the Nerf Strongarm and Disruptor are identical, their modifications are compatible with each other. To make this mod even better, the entire modification is entirely free. The only tool you need is a screwdriver and some snippers!
The mod covered in this video involves removing the air restrictor and dart posts. This allows more direct airflow through your blaster. With more air hitting your darts, they will fly notably farther than before the mod.

Orange Mod Works Kit
As mentioned in the video above, there are tons of premade Nerf mod kits that you can purchase. These mods come with all the parts you need, their own set of instructions, and only require installation.
This kit includes a new spring, a plunger replacement, a catch, as well as a new metal trigger. The new, more powerful spring will help give the blaster more power and precision. The metal trigger, while not providing an actual functional purpose, makes the blaster more durable and gives it a cooler look overall. Get the Orange Mod Works Kit for your Nerf Strongarm here!
While these mods do come with their own set of instructions, it is always helpful to see someone else complete the mod and hear their tips and tricks to get the most out of your blaster. Watch the installation of the Orange Mod Works Kit by Lord Draconical below!
Once you have installed the Orange Mod Works Kit into your Nerf Strongarm, you will not only be able to feel that your blaster performs better, but you will see your darts fly further than they ever could have before!
Rear Loading StrongArm
One reason the Nerf Strongarm is such a popular blaster is that it can easily be reloaded due to the drop-open spinning chamber. While the Nerf Strongarm can already be easily reloaded, reloading your blaster can become even faster and more efficient with a simple modification.
This rear loading Strongarm mod is done by removing the barrel from inside the blaster and then prying the two pieces apart. The dart posts are removed, and the chambers are lightly sanded to allow darts to travel through.
After completing the rear loading modification, you can then replace the spring inside your blaster to further increase your Nerf Strongarm’s power and precision. Nerf blaster spring replacements are fairly simple and can be completed in a relatively short amount of time. Get the WORKER Mod Upgrade Spring for your Nerf Strongarm here!
In addition to showing you how to complete the rear loading Strongarm and spring replacement modifications, the video below includes an in-depth description of the internal workings of the Nerf Strongarm. After watching the description and learning how your blaster operates, you might even develop some new modifications for yourself.
Drop Clip Mod
Looking for another way to quickly reload your Nerf Strongarm while in battle? Then you are going to love this awesome drop clip mod.
The stock model of the Nerf Strongarm allows for the cylinder to slide partially out. This means that you can only access two to three dart holders at a time as you reload one dart at a time. However, have you ever wondered what it would be like if you could reload the entire clip at the same time? With this Drop Clip mod, now you can!
To fully complete this modification, you will need an extra one or two Nerf Strongarm cylinders. Because it is not easy to find only the cylinder for sale, you may need to purchase a second Nerf Strongarm and use it solely for parts. (Get your second Nerf Strongarm here!) If you know how to 3D print, you can always create a custom clip for your blaster as well.

12 to 24 Shot Nerf Strongarm
The original Nerf Strongarm can hold and fire up to 6 darts at a time. Because of the low ammunition capacity, you might find yourself reloading your blaster more frequently than you would like. However, with some unique ingenuity, you can turn your single cylinder Nerf Strongarm into a blaster with multiple cylinders. This modification can be done with anywhere between two to four cylinders.
To complete this modification, you are going to need extra Nerf Strongarm cylinders. As I mentioned in the mod above, these are not easy to come by alone. If you do not already have extra cylinders lying around, your options include 3D printing new cylinders or purchasing new Nerf Strongarms to use for parts.
