I was going to make a doubled night finder by useing PVC for the plunger tube and plastic card rod or square rod for a scrached built plunger rod.... but I didn't have the parts avalible for the plunger rod so I just desided to make a double wide plunger tube so it would be moving 4 times the air volume than the normal one... so thus the 2 inch PVC plunger tube.

and next to a luger'ed night finder for compairison:

the original plan was to try and make a NF Rifle but the only PETG I had to use for a barrle was too short I think to be efective seeing as it was only like 3-4 inches long. I also am almost positive that since I am uses the same springs in the suped up one as I did in the orginal it still has the same PSI and effective range with the same length barrle. So I desided to use a 1.25 inch barrle with 3 PETG barrles nested in it:

the ranges are about the same as gun pre-moded but only with 3 rounds instead of one.

You would get better ranges if you hot glued the rest of the area in the barrel. In between the PETG you are losing a TON of pressure.

First that I have seen of this. Nice. Mod.

the plunger head is made out of plastic card layers with a craft foam layer on top that makes the seal with the tube wall.

You can find it in most hobby shops. Just like how FBR is called caulk saver in most of the US, USians refer to Plasticard as 'sheet styrene.'

I think everyone who reads or contributes to this site needs to take a big stap back and reallize we're discussing nerf guns. The fate of absolutely NOTHING important depends on what you, me, or anyone else does

Might I suggest adding a strong magnet or velcro to the top/side so that you can attach it to your primary as needed? That way you can use it as a quick answer to a popup target either as part of a primary or as a secondary.
