Hello everybody. I found this site shortly after i began to modify my nerf nite finder. I completely modified EVERYTHING before finding this site. Which kind of sucked, and had its benefits. A list of everything i did to my nite finder...
1. stretched spring inside for more resistance
2. added an extra 0-ring inside so that it had a tighter seal, then i added valve grease to the plunger.
3. i saw air restrictors inside.... RIPPED THOSE OUT
4. modified the barrel slightly
5. gave it a new paint job
6. put an ACTUAL LASER in for a sight. using existing wiring and batteries, but changing the inside components.
7. i modified all my darts, stick darts now a little heaver, and completely air tight due to hot glue and shake straws; long losing darts kind of like stephens, and a shorter stubby type stephan for max velocity

here are links to see my pics... tell me what u think
http://www.photodump...gunnoflash.html
http://www.photodump...unanddarts.html

http://www.photodump...7hq/3darts.html

reccomendation on more mods? A question is... will a brass barrel, longer too, help distance and accuracy?

the box when i first got it pre mod said 35 feet... i did field testing today and my average distance is 56 feet, due to those mods... quite a difference i think. The small stephens went a max of 62 feet. i was shocked. the standard dart that came with it only went about 48 ft. due to lack of weight. and this is with NO WIND whatsoever. Drop me a line on my first post... later `k7`

Nice, very original. I suggest cleaning up your triming though.

Lasers can blind people. I suggest taking it out if you're going to use it in a war. Or you can take out the batteries for wars and leave them in when you're not having a war.

Nice job though.

Just a brass barrel? Probably won't help you much. But a nested brass barrel could improve your ranges a bit. I am sure you could gain a few feet replacing the barrel with a nested brass one.

I like the color scheme. One question: what is that fabric on the top of the gun? It looks like it could be velcro, but I'm not totally sure...

Thanks for the support guys. It IS velcro on top for an optional ammo holder that i am creating. Its computer cord velcro so its quality stuff. What do you mean by a nested brass barrel? Yeah the paint job needs a little work... okay, im going to explain the use of this weapon now, and the game we are playing. We are playing TAG, the assassin game. Its a group of about 20 guys from school jr./sr.'s and we have a set of rules.. wont go into that cause they are quite lengthy mainly you cant do anything cheap, like at school or school functions that you are participaring in. (although i was thinking about getting my kill at our school's drama production tomorrow while he is on stage since he is hte main actor, imagine how fun that would be.. but its NOT legal since its a school event) you get assigned a kill from whoever is hosting this game, the only contact we have with this person is an email address. and after you get your kill you report it to the email and get your new one, until someone wins... eventually we might have an entry fee and then the winner gets about 90% and the coordinator of the game keeps the other 10... the rules are no BIG GUNS. keep it simple, and oh yeah, the biggest rule... no witnesses to a kill. make sense? no one can see you kill the other person, if someone witnesses the kill besides the person being shot, it is not a viable kill. (kind of an oxy moron there... viable kill ... ) anyway, any recommendations on mods to a gun, preferably nightfire that would make it a great losing weapon... my prefered tactic... oh yeah, no CO2 legal. thanks guys...
