I'm going to buy another nitefinder and mod it. I plan on taking out the air restricter putting on a barrel but I don't know if cpvc or pvc is better. My techniques for adding ammo holders are taking out one of the things
with the two circles on the bottom front (I hope that makes sense) and gluing it on the side and taking out the the battery stuff and drilling half inch holes in the handle (obviously where the batteries go). also my longshot broke so I'm wondering if the gun can handle that spring. And if it can't how do I reinforce it so it can.

Here are some pictures of a previous nite finder. The picture one the left is of the ammo thing that makes no sense and the right one is the handle with holes where the battery's normally go.

First, a suggestion, make sure all your I's and starts of sentences are capitalized, and all your grammar is correct, otherwise people will yell at you and you might get temporarily banned.
1/2" cpvc is good for nightfinders, pvc is too loose. I don't really get your ammo holder thing, but it should work, I imagine.
As for the LS spring, the spring is way too long, it wouldn't fit in the gun, and it might be too wide for the plunger chamber (I could be wrong). The ls spring is pretty weak, and I would recommend fixing the longshot VS. taking the spring from it. How is the LS broken?

I recommend using 17/32 brass for your barrel. It has worked wonders in mine. However, I did not remove the stock barrel, I just slid the brass in and used some silicon sealant to ensure a good adherence. Also, I took my front dart holders off and cut down the place they set in so it looked more sleek. After that I was considering gluing those 2 holders on either side of the gun (I haven't figured out where) so that I can hold 4 darts instead of 2. I don't recommend drilling out your handle, because that's kinda where you hold the gun and I wouldn't want darts impeding my play. I also recommend removing the "laser" and replacing it with a more powerful red LED so you can see in night games and aim a bit better without your eyes having to adjust like they would after seeing other color lights. Just some suggestions, no need to follow them, but as of right now, I'm working on a spring-in-stock recon and Longshot front gun mods. Rybot out.

The LS spring is way too wide to fit in the NF plunger tube. I suggest making a NF/LS. It's basically a NF with a LS plunger head, plunger tube, and spring. It gets great ranges.

Usually people will use cvpc with thinner darts. Here's a link to the modification dictionary. This helps a lot with mods. CLICK ME

Find nightfinder and you should get a lot of new ideas and most of the answers to your own questions.

1/2" cpvc. works great with 1/2" Frost King, Grey Foam Backer Rod stefans (That foam may be purchased at Lowe's, Home Depot, or at may online sotres). May I also suggest adding a coupler to the NF would make it more wieldly.

So you suggest I just take the part with the spring in it and stick it in the NF?

Don't buy Frost King. It is too inconsistent between batches, so while you might have found a good one this time, next time you will probably get some that is about 9/16ths instead of 1/2 an inch.

And just stick an Ace #49 spring in there and CPVC coupler it. Its simple, but it works.

With you quoting me in your signature, I don't really care that much about grammar and all that shit, but the majority of the forum does and it will get you banned if you don't follow the rules on that, and I don't like seeing people get banned since they might offer something to the community. Look around the forum and you will see that like in every single thread the admins threaten to or suspend/ban someone for poor spelling or grammar. I was just trying to give you some friendly advice.

Crosshairs, don't be a jerk to Wisp, he was offering a helpful suggestion that could help you from getting a ban.
People I guarantee will get pissed at you if you don't fix the grammar.

I just find it hilarious in general that people care that much, and how much they sounds like my 7th grade English teacher's reaction to the word "who".

You English teacher is right. We, as well as much of the functioning world, have standards. Follow them or be ejected.

Also, threads where the first post only includes conjecture are not welcome here.

The little critters of nature, they don't know that they're ugly. That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumble bee. I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me. Why didn't you believe me?
