ok, so i was just swimming one day and then decided to check through all my old pool toys to see if i could find something to entertain me besides chasing the under water robot that goes like 2 mph and only goes half way through the pool and then gives up and turns around. I mean seriously whats up with that?! oops getting off topic! anyways i found an old gun i remember that i had for about 2 years. i don't know what brand it was or the name of the gun but it shot a super dart. I just feel in love with this gun because it was so small and super easy to prime, but it kinda sucked with the super dart so i knew that i had to mod it to shoot normal darts. Here is what it looks like. (sorry for it being all shaky i have a really crappy camera)

There were only 5 screws so that made it really easy to open up. here are the internals. I think they are similar to the internals of the nitefinder.

You see that piece of foam in the handle. that is the first time i have ever seen that in a not modded gun. It stops vibrations from going crazy in that hollow handle. Good thing for it too since this gun has a lot recoil for it's size. anyways here is the spring it had.

That's a pretty big spring for a gun that size. oh and if you want a reference--it is as long from my wrist to the tip of my middle finger (EDIT: i mean the gun not the spring). i guess i have average sized hands. I wanted to add another spring but the hammer (that's what i call it anyways. it is the thing at the end with the O-rings on it) wouldn't budge even when i unscrewed it. i thought about cutting of the back of the plunger, slip in a spring, then and use a different thing to pull back the plunger since the yellow foam thing looked kinda stupid, but then i figured to keep the extra spring i had for another gun.

So the first thing i did was violently crush off the yellow "barrel" that the dart slid over. (been a while since i modded a gun. might as well have some fun.) This was my end result.

Then I attached an old barrel from the disk shot shooter gun.

The tape is there to keep it in place until i got more super glue. The only glue i had at the time was school glue.

This hole almost got away from me.

here it is with out the detachable barrel

and here it is with the detachable barrel

I did a shot range test with a stefan and an MT20 dart (mech tommy 20)

w/o barrel extension

MT20: about 30 feet flat

stefan: about 40 feet flat

w/ barrel extension

MT20: about 35 feet flat

stefan: about 50 feet flat with a good stefan.

If you know what this gun is please do tell me.

here is a video on it IF you want to see it -->

Cool!

I love seeing these no name guns pop onto the screen and have potential.

If you wanted you could drill a hole or groove into the plunger handle and add bands for better range.

I don't get my kicks out of you,
I don't feel the way I used to do.
I know its bad,
After what we had,
But Iím just not the angel you knew.

Interesting gun, I recommend you find a better way to attach the new barrel though (the duck tape is fugly).

Also, macro and flash on the camera dude. Macro should be a little flower and flash a little lightning bolt.

I'd tell you to replace the stock spring, but by the looks of it the spring would cost more than the whole gun. A paint job would take it up a notch. You should try the Krylon Fusion Nickel paint I used on my LS (here: http://nerfhaven.com...howtopic=12500). No sanding (optional), no priming, no muss, no fuss, good stuff. (Don't forget the clear coat)

I'm sorry, but do you mind capitalizing your i's properly? It's getting annoying.

I'm very very sorry. It's just that I am so used to Microsoft Word, where it does it for you.

That is funny a guy named CAPS telling a guy to use capitals he he. I hate duct tape. I suggest using something more formidable than super glue.

Isn't it "2 topics an hour"?

Very nice,

After you get the tape off it should look pretty cool, i always liked the idea of carrying a gun that looks innocent but really packs a punch.

Before it broke, i had a singled blue titan. My friend said it looked so stupid and fake, he said i was a child because i play with nerf guns.

I shot him with it and the situation never repeated itself.

Some friends right?

Sorry that was off-topic.

Anyway great mod, I prefer blurry pictures over no pictures!
