I have always hated the sights on Nerf Guns, so one day, I grabbed my Night Finder and tools, on a quest to make that stupid laser sight of some use, this was my result:

Step 1: Open Up the gun and unscrew the screws on the black thing that I am pointing at in the picture.

Step 2: Detach the black flashlight part from the gray and yellow thing by unscrewing the screws I am pointing at.

Step 3: So now you have the separate pieces. Put the gray and yellow thing in your pocket and screw the black flashlight back in. Screw the gun back together.

It takes 3 easy steps, but it is quite usefully. Simply take the yellow and grey thing off and the red light acts as a powerful floodlight, put the the piece on and it acts as a laser!

I'm am coming out with better mods in the near future, but for now, this is a simple, but effective mod that will only take you a few minutes to complete.

Can you be more specific on how bright it is? It seems like a great idea but that little light doesn't seem to be powerful enough to do much more than make you a beacon. Maybe a pic of it turned on in a dark room would help.

Usefully? No way! I need to go check my dictionary to see if any other words have changed... Ok maybe that was a bit harsh.
Anyway, good concept, needs more pictures.

It's a cheap LED. What do you expect?

Either my light was different or something is wrong with it because I tried this and it only makes it worse. The peace you removed magnifies and focuses the light making it brighter.

Sorry you guys didn't like it, here is an idea of how powerful it is on floodlight mode:

In a dark room:

Solid red circle about a foot across and a foot tall (well, duh it's a circle)

I have been using it in night wars and it works good for me.

I'm calling bullshit. At no point did your pictures actually show any changes and now you say that having a light on your gun is good for night wars. If you're playing at night you don't want anyone to know where you are. You know a good way for people to know where you are in a night war? Turn a light on in the dark.

The mod is useless, your write up was terrible and you didn't actually show a picture of the finished product. Next time you do a "mod" and make a "write up", you've got to have more information then this. Otherwise, the guys at NHQ will love this thing.
