I realize that there are millions of Nite Finder modifications both improving its performance and its appearance. I do not own a Nite Finder, for I am old school and will never relinquish my beloved Sharpshooter II, but a couple of my friends own Nite Finders, therefore I had the opportunity to examine one up close and modify it the way I saw fit. I find that using single shot long ranged pistols are of great value, but notice, I said "single shot." This modification will allow one to have an extra quick, but accurate shot.

As you can see, I installed one of those quirky Nerf keychain guns into the Nite Finder's light socket.

Posted Image
This is the keychain stripped down. I took pliers and removed the air restrictors. This gives it some power. You can see that it is very compact and would easily fit into a Nite Finder.

I opened it up, removed the light, and Dremeled all junk that prevented the keychain gun from sitting in there easily.

I Dremeled the bottom so that the trigger button sticks out the shell.

Posted Image
I Dremeled the front so that the barrel and plunger stick out. I also added hot glue to the top of the plunger and the bottom of the barrel for extra stability.

Next, I put it all back together, leaving the front ammo holder intact, but saving the back ammo holder for bottom.

Posted Image
Leaving off the battery cover, I Dremeled the plastic away so that the holder fits snug down into the grips where the batteries are supposed to be placed. Then I hot glued it around the edges.

Shown here is the ideal firing position.

As you can see, this gives you an extra quick shot. The effective range of the newly installed gun is 30 feet. One might say that 30 feet is not good at all, but it is not designed for range. It is designed to be a reserve weapon used in quick emergencies when reloading is not an option. I hope you all have found this interesting.

Nice ldea. I thought of doing that but putting the pocket blaster flat and in the ammo holders. That way you can have the trigger near your finger. Those pocket blasters are pretty powerful for their small size.

But it's still a nice mod. I never thougt of putting the ammo holder from the front into the handle. That's really cool. I especially like the location of the "trigger" on the Pocket Blaster, it looks comfortable and easy to fire. Good job. *thumbs up*

I'd never seen it before so I thought I'd try and be original with it and not follow suit with everyone elses' NF mods. The trigger is very easy to fire. One can actually extend the middle finger and fire it, but I usually fire my pistols from a two-hand tactical position so it's just easy to engage the SSPB with my left hand.

My brother (Silencer32) and I discussed doing that but rejected it because the keychain takes too long to pump, nulling the advantage of having an extra shot in a tight spot.

Well, you obviously pump the SSPB before the battle and if the occaison calls for it, fire it. About 8 pumps does the SSPB well.

Not a bad idea. The nitefinder is almost the standard sidearm of all Sheboygan nerfer's as we all started usin' 'em for assassins. We'll have to have our mod specialist (K7hq) play around with this some.
