I.General

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.

Posted Image

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.
Posted Image

If you want to go further, you must cut this piece off. It is the barrel clamp on the top, right of the gun.
Posted Image

Here is another piece I took off the X-Bow. Look familiar? It is the original ammo holder.
[Posted Image

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.
Posted Image

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.
Posted Image

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!

There's no way a NF would generate enough air to shoot an arrow very far- just use the X-bow barrel to shoot megas, or something. Or just do a PVC mod with it, and use the same bow parts.

...You said it was the ultimate pistol mod, yet all you did is de-crease the range and add ammo holders.....Anyone feel like lettin me in on how this is better than a simple PVC mod?

(And if you actually plan on trying to shoot someone with an arrow off of your nf from 30 feet, I'd suggest fixing the barrel, It looks like it's pointing down. )

Unlike most of the people that posted here, I loved that mod. It was very unique and will give me something to do with my xbow barrel.

Unique isn't always good. That thing would be a nightmare to carry around. I probably wouldn't use that if you paid me. Word of the wise: there's a reason pistols are small, so you can use them easier. If you wanted to bastardize a gun with crossbow parts, you should have atleast used a rifle of some sort.

Well, if it makes you happy, then it's a successful modification.

But calling it "ultimate" somehow does too much justice to a modification that basically makes the NF less useful (except to make people stare at it in wonder).

I give you props for being honest about the arrow ranges (0'). Some indeed would claim the arrow to have extreme ranges, or go through drywall or something.

But the Triple Torch is a compact pistol that also shoots a reduced size arrow--perhaps modifying your x-bow arrows to reduce size might work? Might be worth it!


I like it. Even if it's just a hand held plastic sculpture with a NF somewhere inside.

I can't beleive some of you guys are taking this seriously. If you haven't noticed, the entire thing is supposed to be humorous.

It is a giant, bowed, arrow pistol that can't launch an arrow of the barrel, How Could I Be Serious? Hell, It looks pretty cool, and a nice use of crappy parts you are never going to use again, but come on!

Guys, he said it doesn't shoot arrows, and it is just to look neat. I really like it. I painted my NF black, but that doesn't improve its performance. I removed the bow strings from my Airzone Crossbow, and that doesn't improve its performance. It's just to look cool, and judging by how it looks in the pictures, I'd say it worked. She's a beaut!

Hey Tenesee I think we need to find more stuff to put on it. I got a strongarm we could probably glue on to it. Or maybe we could put my chainblazer on it! Just wait Nerfhaven the Chainfinder will soon be coming to you!

I think it was a good idea and is kind of funny. So it may not be ultimate, but who cares? It's awesome. You know, sometimes you just do things for the coolness factor. You don't always have to try and squeeze every inch of range you can get from a nerf gun.

Sounds like you've been talking to a guy named Forgotten Hero.

He had a penchant for sticking all kinds of stuff on his blasters. I think his biggest one had maybe 8-9 different blasters stuck together to his Expand-a-Blast with duct tape and hot glue. And it had an plastic soldier for an aimer. If I remember correctly, it could shoot in four different directions at once. Why, I'm not sure.

At least that NF pistol/bow/cross thing looks decent. Have fun!

I really like the mod, personally.

The bow thingies are funny looking vut still kinda cool, you coul;d attach some other guns to them potentially

What's coola bout the mod is the use of the crossbow stock barrel as opposed to a regular PVC barrel. I'm talking about the use of mega stefans here. The problem with PVC and spring guns is that its hard to make a barrel constriction. The xbow barrel already has a built in contriction at the back to hold the darts tighter. I bet with mega stefans teh xbow barrel will have much better ranges and velocities than a PVC barrel with the NF.

Good thinking, good original mod!

Honestly, the final picture doesn't give it enough credit. I thought it would look junky, but it turned out to look really cool. As for usefullness, well...

Also, just in case you guys didn't know. Darkshrimp is not going to do this to his LnL.

Just wanted to say: Props to DarkShrimp, we both kind of came up with the idea.

He helped with the idea, he is just messin'
