Adding A Flashlight To A Nite Finder
Posted 17 March 2008 - 06:22 PM
First, I ripped out everything involving the lazer, including the part with the plastic lense.
I soon realized that simply sticking a small, cheap flashlight in the opening (when i took the box with the lense out htere was a hole). Also, the flashllight sticking out of the gun might create a cooler effect.
In order for this to work the flashlight had to be:
1. using 2 AA batteries. Watch batteries are annoying.
2. Able to turn on and off from the front. ( most of the flashlight will be inside the gun)
3. Able to have batteries replaced from the front.
once I found a flashlight like this, I needed to keep it from slipping out the front. The first idea that popped into my head was to wind E-tape around the flashlight untill it could fit where the lazer waas without falling out the front.
I am happy to say this worked, so I did not pursue a more professional way of securing the flashlight. I soon realized that a blue flashlight does not go good with a yellow Nite Finder. So I painted the orange parts red and the rest metallic silver.
sorry I can't provide pictures right now. If oyu are trying to do this modd and are confused, I will elaborate (there isn't much more that I could). This mod is perfect for night battles and not on the forums (I typed flashlight Nite Finder in the search engine and found nothing)
I hope you enjoy this mod!

I did exactly that to my first NF, and it's not difficult at all. No pictures since it's in the process of moving to a Scout.
You don't even need to get a whole maglight. All you need is the lamp and reflector assembly. Then you can take advantage of the existing battery holders and trigger-based switch, or you can go to Radio Shack and pick up a SPST switch.
