Tools / Supplies required.
DTB
NF
Normal 1/2'' coupler (CPVC)
T-Coupler (1/2'' CPVC)
Hot Glue
Replacement Spring.
Dremel
Silicone Lube
A 4 3/4'' length of CPVC
Cutting Disc/bit
Drill bit
Pipe Cutters
Epoxy

So, start with these two guns. The underrated DTB and the great NF. (I am aware of the non-stock NF)

I can't go into great detail on how to cpvc-coupler the NF, but cut the coupler in half. Glue / Epoxy the coupler onto the second internal piece that's after the plunger tube. Basically it looks like this.

Minimize the shell using this cutting bit for your dremel.

DTB internals.
Posted Image
Take the DTB, remove the air restrictors and cut the posts off the piece that looks like the NF's air restrictor post thing. Wow that was indescriptive, I'm sorry.
Posted Image
Take your ordinary T-Coupler
Posted Image
Take the 4 3/4'' length of CPVC and cut it about 1/2'' in. Like so.
Posted Image
Posted Image
Take the rod from the DTB cocking handle. Get a drill bit the same width or a bit bigger, drill where marked.

Take the plunger rod and drill with the same bit (where marked).
Posted Image
Put the CPVC (the 4 3/4'' length) on the plunger rod and line up the holes. Put the rod through (Haha sigable) and glue the rod in there.
Posted Image
Glue the T-Coupler on the other side of the 4 3/4'' length.
Posted Image
Posted Image
Cut here on the DTB's forehandle/grip.
Posted Image
Glue/Epoxy the NF on. It should look something along the lines of this.

Additional Pictures.

The ranges for the DTB are standard AR removed ranges. About 40-50'. The NF is hitting 50-65.
ANY feedback is greatfully appreciated.

I was more of hoping for something original like a nf integrate as the plunger tube for the turret giving it more power.

I like that you tried, but I have to say that it is rather pointless, unless your slide has broken, or lost its function due to other mods.

If at first you don't succeed, add more epoxy.

That is also what I was hoping for. Doesn't this also decrease ranges since it also has to pull that big piece of cpvc and the tee.

Thanks for the feedback.

Thanks. Not really. As long as you use a decent amount of epoxy/hotglue over a good surface area you're fine.

Thanks. The cocking bar was breaking so I thought I would try this.

Not really, the ranges haven't decreased since I put it on. People really don't know that CPVC doesn't weigh that much.

It weighs enough to lessen ranges, though. You probably did other mods when you opened it up to attach the CPVC that cancel out the range loss.

Hot glue really isn't good for bonding parts that will be stressed or are heavy and have no other support.

It looks extremely painful to prime the nightfinder while holding the DTB.

I am pretty sure that this is not an integration...
I might be wrong though.

Actually, the NF style cocking method can improve ranges by allowing the user to attach rubber bands, bungees surgical tubing, extension springs, etc.

Good job, but its not exactly the greatest or most innovative mod/integration ever.
