I have created an extreme mod for the Nite-Finder. Just wanted to say: Props to DarkShrimp, we both kind of came up with the idea. This is my first mod, so cut me some slack.
I am going to use the N-Strike Nite Finder Ex 3. It doesn’t look as good as the old one, but it is the only thing that was available to me. As far as I know, they are the same gun, except mine can click into the Titan. Anyways, unscrew eyerything and open the gun up. Watch out, the screws are all the same, except two larger ones, and two smaller ones.
Thar she blows! That is the inside of a stock Nite Finder. Unscrew the barrel (The screws are the same size as the first 2 smaller ones).
II. Barrel Switch
Pull apart the barrel.
If you bull apart the barrel you get 6 pieces. Take the air chamber (left-most item) and put it aside. Take everything else and violently get them off the table. Slap them, throw them, shot a rocket into them, whatever. That or you could just throw them out.
I got this (top picture) off a modded Crossbow. It was the original barrel from the top of the gun. Take it and cut it at the bottom (opposite the side with the holes in the barrel) and cut it up to the first ring. It is only maybe ˝ an inch. It will look like this(Bottom Picture).
Using hot glue, take the new barrel and glue it to the air chamber on the side with the indent. Glue it as close to the top as possible, you will have to hold it in place for a minute or so, until the glue dries. I suggest putting some hot glue on the inner ring of the air chamber, sticking the barrel in, and then applying more glue and holding it in place.
Put everything pack in the shell. It should all fit perfectly. Screw it pack on and screw everything together.
Now it is all good. Why do this, you might ask. NOW IT CAN SHOOT AN ARROW!!!
If I were like most people, I would tell you it goes 30 FT, but I’ll be honest; the arrows can’t even get off the barrel, no matter what you do. It just slides up the barrel. It may not be useful, but hey, It’s cool!
III. Awesomization (Yes, it is a word)
If you want, you can stop there, but it won’t be nearly as cool if you do.
If you want to go further, you must cut this piece off. It is the barrel clamp on the top, right of the gun.
Here is another piece I took off the X-Bow. Look familiar? It is the original ammo holder.
Slide the ammo holder on to the Nite Finder’s barrel with the flat part and arrow holders facing up. Then glue that bad boy on. Glue it on the top were the Nite finder makes contact, and both sides. Then, take the “Bow” string and put it through the finger grip of the cock. Attach it to the other side of the X-Bow ammo holder, tight enough to look Bowish.
Then put a bunch of hot glue on the flat green base of the X-Bow Ammo holder. Now using the orange “Bows” removed of a Big Bad Bow, attach one side to the top. We it is positioned glue the back holes to the rear of the gun.
Apply hot glue to the top black area of the other orange section. Stick that onto the ammo holder and slid the black holes onto the grip. Glue into the holes directly , and wait for everything to cool down.
(Say in Scottish accent): Aint she a beut!
