Very cool gun, but why didn't you just keep the airtech 3000 turret?

Because you can't auto advance the 3k turret outside of the gun, and you wont be able to manually rotate it efficiently because it isn't on the spring loaded gear like the 2k turret is meanign I'd have to hold it in place every round and it wouldn't have a very good seal. And it wouldn't have fit even if I wanted it to. The pump gets in the way.

Got it. Great idea.

I'm sorry if I'm just completely missing something, but how exactly is the plunger tube kept in the shell?

As I stated earlier:

I wrapped electrical tape in the front and back of the plunger. It doesn't need much to hold it in, just as long as it doesn't fall out the front, but its rock solid.

This is an amazing mod, I love the secondary inside a secondary thing going on here. But one quick question, which gun inside the NF is the "Primary"?

Well, that might be an opinion question, but I'd say the Nite Finder because its the most powerful.. For me, in a battle I use my side arm more than my primary because my primary generally shoots really far and has a slow reload time, so as I reload I hold people off with my medium range gun with a decent rate of fire, which would be the 3k. But not everyone would use the gun like I would.

I have a noobish question. The plunger tube in the nitefinder, (which is 1 inch petg) is it from a pet store? Or am I totally wrong.

Thanks before hand, street slick.

Last night I was at the bar and got really drunk, so I decided I would take a bus home instead, this may seem like no big deal to you guys but driving a bus while your drunk is really dangerous.

You are really cool!

There is to be no selling or advertising of sales outside of the trading section.

I'm sorry, I didn't know that was a rule. And even so, does it apply when I'm simply mentioning the fact that its for sale at the end of an enormous write up? Personally I would say no. It's when I post only the sale in the Modifications section that I see a problem. I'm not arguing with anyone here, I'm just trying to clarify the situation.

I never knew about this rule either. And I've seen others mentioning things were for sale at the end of writeups and such in the past. Is there an issue with linking to a sales thread or anything? Again, not arguing, but looking for clarification.

More on topic: I saw this thing on eBay, and I thought, "wow, sweet." I like the idea of cramming blasters inside blasters inside blasters, and it's crazy how you've managed to fit all of that in such a small package. Awesome work.

I'm not sure if it's been asked yet, but the plunger head doesn't reach the coupler? isn't your plunger rod destroying the back of your gun right now?

Nope, I put just enough play in the spring that after its fired there's about a centimeter between the back of the plunger rod and the shell. This will increase the life of the gun a lot because plastic never impacts plastic. Its also pretty quiet, the loudest noise the gun makes is the dart leaving barrel.
