This is a finicky mood and will most likely need tweaking after your done.
Disk of hard plastic (I’ll get into why latter)
Open up your raider and take out the plunger, catch mechanism, slam fire ability and the parts that hold the plunger in straight, we will not be using them
Cut the barrel so that it looks like this (sorry I don’t have exact measurements). Hammer a 3-3/8” piece of 17/32 into the barrel.
Cut the 17/32 brass so that it follows the curves of the front of the original barrel.
Cut ¾” pieces of the 9/16 brass, 19/32 brass, and the ½ PVC. Glue the 9/16 brass into the 19/32 and using some e-tape glue the 19/32 brass into the PVC.
Hammer and glue the PVC into the plunger tube like shown. I used a dist shot plunger tube taking advantage of the glued ring, but a nightfinder plunger tube would work fine as long as you make sure it’s straight.
Now for the shell. First we will have to cut of this small part of the shell as shown.
Now to allow the nightfinder to fit around the back of the gun you will need to cut it at the nerf logo as shown.
It should fit around the back of the gun like this.
Next cut off the handle of the nightfinder just below the trigger.
Place the nightfinder trigger directly behind the trigger of the raider and mark were on the shell the trigger make contact
You will have to sand theses parts down so that the trigger can move freely.
All of the steps above to the shell must been done to both sides of both the raider and nightfinder.
When the nightfinder is placed around the raider, the two triggers should line up as shown.
To make sure the triggers stay in line cut the back of the raider trigger so that it’s flat.
One problem that we have to tackle is to allow the boltsled to slide over the new larger plunger tube. Originally, there is a lip on the bolted in the very back.
You will have to sand this lip down so that it is flush with the inside of the boltsled like below.
I’m not sure if this part is necessary, but it helps allow everything to run smother. What you have to do is sand down the inside of the boltsled so that it slides over the plunger easily. It wont take allot.
