Real Ppk Mod?
Posted 12 October 2004 - 02:52 PM
My real question is about the feasibility of such a "real PPK" mod--IE shortening the plunger tube and putting an internal barrel on the end of it. You'd have to glue the plunger tube in, because you'd be cutting off the bit with the forward screw-eye, and shorten the actual plunger to make it work, but would the drop in power in the gun from these modifications make the gun entirely useless? To reiterate--would chopping the plunger tube nearly in half to fit a purely internal barrel for a true PPK look destory performance so much that it wouldn't be worth performing the mod?

Your concept of the internal barrel is identical to the Scout internals. Quite frankly, the Scout sucks.
Do what you want, but Nerf isn't all about looks. If you want it to be identical to a PPK, you would make an internal barrel. If you make an internal barrel, it will suck. If it sucks, you won't use it.

Now the Nite Finder is a tad on the large side for any walther pistol, but it most closely matches the P99 http://world.guns.ru...guns/hg14-e.htm . Not my favorite handgun, but hey, no use discussing real-steel here. Anyway, the point of posting that is take a look at the grip, looks more similar to the Nite Finder. Conclusion: Socrates will die. I mean uh, conclusion: make the Nite Finder look like a P99 and not like a PPK. (Any of you that have been in the presence of a PPK know it is inconceivably tiny. Wiley Germans.)

CX--Thanks for the welcome, and the experienced opinion.
Lemmypoo--You're probably right about which gun it looks like, though I was just using the board lingo for the mod. If you figure out the plunger problem, gimme a PM or email me.
To all that responded--Thank you. I'll probably try the mod for one gun to use on my teams "go about your normal classes until you see another teammate, at which point you have to engage until one is dead" days. Hell, the gun is ass-cheap.
(Just by the way, I've already done two cut down PPK/P99 mods with crayola barrels--this is just a side project I was thinking about)
