Modding A Nite Finder
Posted 28 October 2004 - 08:27 PM
Well, being that it's a spring, I pulled it apart, and found the spring, I stretched it some, and after stretching too far squeezed it back some.
Over all it seems to have less of a drop rate as I shoot down my hall, so it seems effective, I'm curious what else I may do to it.
If my digital cam was working I'd pop up some pictures to show, something to work on.
Didn't know what anyone thought and if there were any suggestions for further improvements on it, I leave it to all of you.

Also..for the NiteFinder it's important to mod the air restrictor to your advantage. Don't just remove it. Work the airflow so that it has a small but reasonable passage.

I wish I had the power to make a 7 year old cry - you must feel like a God now, eh?

You should never shoot someone with a nerf dart when there not willing to be shot by it.
Why are you happy that your in trouble?

Except for my seven-year old son. If you shot him, he'd shoot back...with his Max Shot. Ouchie.
Nerf can really hurt, and I don't think you should be shooting a seven year-old.
Hey Crimson_Owl, did you replace that barrel yet? You'd be surprised what you can use for barrel material beside the usual SCH40 PVC, brass, or PETG. I experimented with flexible irrigation "funny pipe" (black, stiff but flexible tubing). Fits micro stefans snugly, but "pop" nicely out when fired. It takes some work to straighten out, but 50 feet out of a Nite Finder without stretching the spring makes for a pretty good, inexpensive first blaster.
I also have a NF with an old, tarnished piece of brass for a barrel, and it still shoots better than factory stock (though not as far as the black piped one). Change that barrel. Have fun!

I already searched parts of the forum for this but couldn't find anything to answer my question.

I don't think your using a NF as your primary, so 4-5 inches should be sufficient.
Your telescoping? Is your gun going to be break barrel? I'm assuming that you load from the front...therefore the telescoping isn't really....I dunno.

I've also tried 17/32 with my darts, and it's tight, which is why I'm telescoping with it as opposed to...well the next smallest, I really can't remember what that is. The dart goes fits nicely in 9/16 which is why I'm using that for the barrel. My current one has CPVC, but the dart is a really tight fit, and as I said above, isn't very practical. Takes a good 30 seconds to reload.
So in conclusion I'll probably use 5 inches, and I'll be able to cut it down if need be.
While I'm at it I'll just ask, has anyone found any tricks to making guns, more specifically the NF, more accurate than normal?
