The FlatMav – Steampunk Nerf Maverick with a twist

The FlatMav – Steampunk Nerf Maverick with a twist

The FlatMav – Steampunk Nerf Maverick with a twist – is a flattened Nerf Maverick that came about because I wanted to do a steampunk Maverick (the Nerf Maverick is the iconic steampunk sidearm) with a difference, the result is the FlatMav, the worlds first flattened leather look Maverick lol

I like the Nerf Maverick, but it does look cooler flattened. I also weighted this bad boy so it feels nice and meaty when you pick it up. It’s more for display than cosplay, but it would do either. Cosplayers do tend to love just spraying the Maverick bronze or brass and then using it as part of their costume, I hope this brings a new twist.

Steampunk Nerf Maverick the Flatmav

The warning states: “Disintegration a Possibility. We at Nerfenstein Labs recommend a good pair of leather gloves, real, not those awful faux ones”. The gauge has three settings: “OK, OUCH and CERTAIN DEATH”.

I know people are going to copy this idea, it’s happening to me more and more and more, it’s really frustrating because it seems giving credit to the original idea isn’t done by everyone, which is uber-lame. If you use it, at least give me a link okay. Better still, why not just commission me to make one… starving artist and all that ;p

Comparison for someone who asked for it at my Facebook Page.

The above is just a comparison to a pre-modded Nerf Maverick. Sadly the only other one I had was the transparent green Maverick as opposed to the usual yellow, still gives you an idea I suppose.

This steampunk badassery was made by Nerfenstein. Check out the Facebook Page for first looks and sneak peeks as well as hints and tips and general geek chat. This post written for the official blog of artist Nerfenstein. The FlatMav is an original concept by Nerfenstein, crazy prop maker wannabe and cosplay weapons loon on the Gold Coast in Australia.

Have a good one!


  1. I did tag you with the Star Wars Nerf mod I did back in spring… Well, I can understand you missing that with all the traffic you probably get.

    • Hi Timo,
      if I didn’t reply I either didn’t see it or didn’t have permission to respond (that’s what happens when people tag me on their personal pages sadly). I ALWAYS reply, so if I never, it was one of those two things, I’d never ignore someone on purpose … do you have a link?

      • Well, let’s see if this comment section allows links:

        • I can’t reply on Facebook, but at least I could check it out and reply here, nice work! That’s a great little blaster, it’s just a shame it isn’t a little bit bigger. You did an awesome job, so happy you were inspired to do that.

  2. Hi, I love all your work. I just started trying Nerf gun mods, and I want to try to replicate some of your pieces, in particular the portal gun and the Legend of zelda gun with shield. I would give full credit on my website and link back to your site. I find you work inspiring and imaginative. I hope to start making guns just as good as yours. Thanks so much.
