The steps to make your very own are right below!
You will need:
One Dremel, with cutting, sanding, utility bits, etc.
The two ammo holders from the back of a Firefly
A hair dryer or other air-heating tool, possibly
Stankity and I used a Nitefinder with minimal modding, namely the AR removal as well as lopping off the weird angled part at the front of the barrel. Our first move was minimizing this thing.
First, we cut into the separate halves of the shell with a Dremel.
The underside of the minimized front:
So now we can get started on the important part of this mod; almost quadrupling the ammo capacity of the Nitefinder.
First we took the ammo holders from the back of a junked Firefly.
We then used the Dremel to cut off then sand down the pegs that connected the two, as well as sanding the remaining bits of peg down to a level flush with the rectangular border.
Then, screw the two halves of your Nitefinder together (without the internals) and go outside somewhere.
We've used the sanding head on the Dremel to make the lines where we minimized smoother, as well as the top parts of the sides, so the ammo holders will attach more easily.
Now, take one side of your gun and place that face-up. Apply a medium-heavy amount of Gorilla glue to both the remaining parts of the peg-posts on the holder you're using, and apply it to the Nitefinder where the two will meet. Hold them together tightly for a couple of minutes, then let it dry in the sun or use a hairdryer to achieve a quicker result.
This is what the first side looks like:
Do the same to the other side.
Sadly, we couldn't take pictures of this next step, as the computer we took our pics with was charging and unusable. However, detailed instructions follow.
This details how to add the two extra dart holders in the handle of the Nitefinder.
Take one of the two-dart holders from the front of the gun and place it over the bottom of the handle with the two holes lined up with the battery slots. They won't line up perfectly and the front hole will be too small. Take a Sharpie and trace the outline of where the holder is, then remove the holder and take the two halves of the shell and Dremel out a space for the holder along the lines you drew, as well as cutting the space down in the forward hole so the holder will line up with it.
You'll only want to glue the holder into one half of the shell, as this allows the two halves to still fit together as well as come apart if necessary.
The finished product of that step. The top hole is the one where you'll need to cut down the wall of the battery housing.
And now, the finished product!
Stankity and I did an unofficial range test, and we got ranges varying from mid-forties to high-fifties in feet. It all depends on the darts you use; my favourite for this is a nice whistler.
Constructive criticism is well-received.
