Finally I managed to mod my own Nite Finder. Hope you like it like I do.
I have added a Tic-Tac box so I can carry around my Darts.
Range: 50 ~ 60 feet

I don't know the exact measures of the barrel, but it fits Micro Darts perfectly and is made out of Iron.

You read right. Iron, not Brass.

That looks pretty sweet. I also liked how you did the photography...the nitefinder standing triumphant against all odds, with it's companions, whistling micros, in the warming glow of the sun. Or I guess I could've avoided using all the imagery and crap and said "nice picture".

I remember that someone made a topic about 3/8 FBR stefans. He called them nanodarts...

Wow. Iron conduit. That kicks ass, but does it work with stock darts very well? I'm modding my own nite finder and I'm trying to decide what to use. I do like a heavy feel in general.

I'm a complete newb at nerf modification, but it's going pretty well. I replaced the lame laserpointer with a black mini-maglite. It has potential . . .

Whoa, that rules! Nice paint job too

I didn't cut off the front on mine, just the ammo holder. I still have a bit of sanding to do . . . and mine isn't going to have a nice silencer on it like that. I think I'm going to use iron conduit for the barrel if it's supposed to work well. I will try to post pictures in a week or so.

Only use it if it fits your darts well though.

Is the inside the the conduit smooth enough so it wont tear up your darts?

It is a spring-powered blaster so of course it's loud.
An unmodded Nite Finder is usually more quiet because of the air restrictor.

I don't know what you could do.
