It's absolutely horrid, like a putrid orange color, and a rust-ish color. I've been looking for a pic, but it looks like it was painted by a class of colorblind 3rd graders and a blind woman. the NF is an awesome gun, and cosmetics don't affect performance, but this one is truly sickening.

I'll post a pic if i find one, however all of my searches have been of no avail.

You're not talking about the N-Strike NF, are you? Because that one's yellow and blue. I'd like to see this.

If he is, he's right. The N-Strike NFs are nasty. No matter how much time I dump into it improving its performance, it's still going to be ugly as balls.

Huh? I think the NF IX-3 (or whatever the hell it's called) looks pretty nice. And if he is talking about that, it's really old news.

Yeah, the N-Strike NFs are gross, but that's nothing black spray-paint can't fix... :huh:

That has got to be one freakin' awesome gun even if it looks ugly, but if it gets 100 feet I'd buy it and spray paint over it. :lol:

I have to say that I don't believe you at all. The sm1500 has a much greater air output than the NF. Unless your plunger extension is freakin ginormous, it shouldn't out shoot a 1500.

Back on topic, is this a new version? Not the blue and yellow ones, but a third edition?

Oh yeah, I've seen pics. He took the internals from a crossbow and put them into his NF. It's got a brass breech barrel and a spring-clip. I think he powers it with pixie dust. I'm sorry, I'm tired.

It might've been blue and yellow, but the yellow was closer to like orange rust poopish color.

It was just plain disgusting looking.

I hope you realize that they don't actually paint Nerf guns. The owners of them can re-paint them, but they don't actually paint Nerf guns when they are producing them. Whatever they use in the mold is pre-colored, then finishing touches are added with machines, not by people. Ever notice that you can scratch off the silver details of your oldschool-style Nite Finder with your fingernail? And the black stuff on the handle comes off where the two halves of the casing meet. Well, guess what's under the silver and black. Yup, you guessed it, the main color of the gun, blue!

Seriously, how would that work? The trigger mechanism is completely different on that plunger.

This guy says he put a crossbow in a nightfinder and the part of that that you call him out on is the trigger mech. You kidding? The trigger mechanism is the only thing that makes sense. Sure, the rest is bull, but if you were going to compare two similar catch mechanisms, the crossbow and nightfinder catches are nearly identical.

I have a hard time believing it was that bad. Especially if your talking about the N-Strike NF.
