First i like to thank the infinite shinding for shipping me the guns !! without his help it
were not possible for me to mod the nite finders.
ok, lets get started:
For my mod u need the following:

--> Hotglue
--> 2-component-glue
--> a Pepsi bottle B)
--> a harder spring
--> several files
--> 1/2" va-steel pipe
--> a tool to drill some holes

the mod is quite easy, you change the spring, take the lid of the bottle and drill a hole for the "streching-stick" (how would you guys call it ?) in the middle of it. remove that
overpressure valve inside the original tube, then saw off the smaller targeting part from
the tube. after all, you need to file the front nozzle to fit to the steel pipe. use a lot of
glue for all parts, because they are only sticked together. the new spring i use is so
strong, it would burt the whole gun otherwise..... here are some pictures:

here you see the targeting thing i sawed off and put it back in the gun...

here is a picture of the steel pipe i glued on the pressure tube:

use a lot of fat to smooth the way of the spring and to insulate the tube....

here i have the original and the new spring, furthermore you can see the pepsi-lid
(cutted):

and thats the baby after all modification done:

after all i have to say that with this mod i can shoot nearly twice the distance than
unmodded. the nite finder is a great gun for me !!!

i hope you understand what i wrote, because were a lot of words i dont knew.
i hope i used my new vocabs correct. feel free to PM me if something is not clear.
bye...

Not a problem dude. It was my pleasure to help an international Nerfer out. I hope to get some more guns to you and others in May. Let us know how it's going over there, and don't be a stranger.

I also sent you a PM. Check your inbox.

That's one of the nicest mod writeups I've ever seen! Very nice Lorschpriester. "Nite Finder Mod German Style..." That's awsome. Great job dude, good luck with future mods!

Near as I can tell to keep the back end of the spring vertical and from pushing directly against the weak peice of plastic that's supposed to hold it back. Excellent idea.

I'm not so sure 'fat' is the right word for the stuff you smeared on your plunger. I think the word your looking for is 'Anal Lube' 'grease'.

Id like to compliment your camera-focusing ability. some of the pic are slightly sketchy but overall they are focused. I respect that. Yes I am done now

You're useless.

Go away and learn how to be productive.
