**NOTE** I'm not going to bother with a write-up to this, it took too many tiny details and pieces from various things to get to the end product. If you're willing to attempt this, then just go by what you see like I did.

Now a write-up.

So I was messing around one day with my disc shot and i ended up just taking it apart. Took out the plunger tube and noticed i had a spare Tactical Light laying around. I then took that apart and saw what space it had inside it.

I got to working.

Posted Image
I took about 3 or so hours cutting out and removing any pieces inside that were just taking up space, and kept the parts that i could use to help fit the plunger tube with more snugly than just having it sitting inside.

Posted Image

EDIT: This is how I went about cutting all the internal shell pieces in order to fit the tube & such:

This was my original plan for the internals:

Turns out the PVC wasn't doing any good, so i took it out.

Another angle (with PVC):
Posted Image

Barrel stabilization was simple, just trim the hole up where the light used to be so the end of the plunger would fit. Barrel would be added on later.

Posted Image

End product:
Posted Image

I used a roseart barrel instead of anything heavy, mainly due to the fact that i've never seen a piece of brass in my town or anywhere near where i live.

EDIT: I ended up having the original hot glued barrel come off, so i gooped it on later.

I didn't do anything fancy with the trigger mech. Just pressing down the catch plate was enough to function as a trigger.
EDIT: Working on a trigger of some sort.

Ranges:
Flat: 40-50 ft.
Angled: 1,000,000 ft. (I kid, i kid..)

It fits just like any other accessory with the tactical rail on it. Thats the beauty.

Other stats:
-Used a slightly stretched Sharpshooter II spring
-Will most commonly be used with my Mini Stefans™ for burst shots. Works very well for close-ranged fire fights, great addition to a long-range gun.
-Wrapped plunger head with teflon tape, then e-tape. Glued down with hot glue.
-Lubed up with silicone spray.

Very nice. This has been done before, but with something a little larger and alot less parts to remove. I am unable to find it, but someone had integrated NF internals into the LS scope.

Great idea. I will defiantely maybe try this. Integrating one into a longshot or something would be pretty sweet. It's like a small NF minimized into an even smaller shell. Nice work

I would've used NF guts, but i didn't have a spare one.

This kind of started out with me being afraid to really integrate anything with anything else permanently.
But now i can equip and un-equip as i please.

The Discshot and NF are pretty much exactly the same.

Don't quote me on the springs, but the internals are the same. I prefer the Discshots because of the better looking shell and more ammo holders.

The main difference is price.

For that reason alone I would rather do this with an NF than a DS.

Very well done. I really like seeing these awesome integrations into the tactical rail things. This way you can just slap one of these on the tactical rail and you have an instant integration. And whats better is you can switch them from gun to gun easily. Nice work.

Very nice modification, makes me want to buy another tactical light for that reason. Also, what rail was on your BBB when you attached it onto the BBB, it doesn't look familiar.

I cut up the barrel extension for the Recon, just the bottom rail.
It fit pretty well, I also took the rail connection piece (whatever you call it) that holds whatever onto the rail. This way i can put a NF or something on the other side.

Ah yes. My local target had a large clearance on DiscShot Expansions, I got them for 6$.

Well, I did have a spare tactical light (ripped it off of my BBB 2 or 3 days ago) and I did have a spare Nite-Finder (ripped it off that same BBB 2 or 3 days ago...after the barrel fell off). SOOOO, I got to work, what happened was I gutted the crud outa everthing in the tac. light, crayola (yes crayola, no roseart for me...but it's the same color, yellow...) and hot glued the plunger in. Now I just feel like I wasted a perfectly good Nite-finder and Tactical Light. Why you ask? Well it's almost done, and since we're leaving for vacation tommorow I won't be able to work on it for 4 days. My only problem is the catch, it's just there, loose, so then gun is uncockable, and whenever you do try to cock it, either 1 of 2 things happen:
1. The entire plunger rod flies out along with the spring and cocking mechanism.
2. You bend the catch spring, you are able to pull the plunger rod back, yet it doesn't cock
because the catch spring isn't firmly mounted on the bottom so you just have to slide the
plunger rod back to the uncocked position.
I did take pictures but I haven't uploaded them yet.

EDIT: (here are the picture[s]!) sorry for the bad quality

Just to see if I gutted anything extra, from your pics, it looks like I gutted alot more then I should've.

I DID TAKE THE HOT GLUE OFF (well actually when I cocked it the hot glue ripped off)
Also, the light is upside down, if you look closely you can see that

I'm sorry to say sir.. but if you'll look at my modifications to the inside of the light's shell, i did not cut out ALL the pieces of the inner tactical light shell.

I added a trigger!

And it comes from the battery pack cover off the original tactical light, so it looks even more like the light did without modification.

Just hot glued on to the top of the catch plate with the little notch at the end of the cover. Works just by pressing down, and is now MUCH more comfortable. Now maybe i can USE it! :P

I did something like this when I first joined but it was with a 2k. Nice job anyways. Also I didn't have a tripod at the time nor did I have my camera settings correct. My text got messed up and I have been trying to fix it sorry to all who this annoys.

Its fine.
Well im assuming that you now do have a camera, so do you have plans on posting it? I've been hearing about all these other mods like this but no one can ever find them! I'd like to see what others have done with the tactical rail.

Then i don't really see how that is anything like my mod.
Other than how the "gun" in the controller slides out like it says.

Actully I think it ws at2k internals in the scope.
