Hey guys, my first post listed just below was about a mod on my NF. I did some more overhauling and i added elastic string to the cocking mechanism, and stretched it over the front of the gun. This did an amazing ammount of change for me. Before this i was shooting about 50-60 feet on average with stefens about 1.5 inches long. i was in our gym at school this morning, to test the range in no wind conditions.. my distance report now is.. 120+ feet consistently, every time... I am thinking of adding a link to a video clip of it, or make it available for download, because to me this feat seems quite amazing for a nerf NF! if any of you have found a mod that will increase range even more for me, let me know. Also, my stefens sometimes fishtail. Although they still go the full range, they are slightly less accurate than those that don't (only about 3 to 4 feet left and right deviation) I have read just about all there is on stefens, im sure i need a little practice on making them, for better performance... but just wondering if anyone has ideas..

Just so you know, alternate text colors and font colors in regular posts are extremely erotic at Haven. Please try to avoid this proactice in the future, so I don't have to keep editing your posts.

It's there for emphasis. One or two words in a different color is fine. Large sections of text become an eyesore.

I also use it when I edit someone's post and leave comments to explain why/what I had to edit.

A video would be nice; one with good frame of reference to distance.

I am assuming you angled your nitefinder for this? Even so, this is incredibly hard to believe, but a video would be nice, and if it IS what you say, I have 8 nitefinders ready to be modded. :nugget:

I overhauled mine to the max of my abilities and only got a little over 80' flat. But it wasn't angled... at all.

The standard way of measuring the ranges of you guns is usually flat, at around five feet off the ground. But even angled, that's amazing! I congratulate you and can't wait to see a video! Excellent job! ^_^

Nah, don't use yousendit. They have some nasty rule that after 25 downloads or 7 days, the file is deleted. Putfile...?

I was looking for a site, and I found Ourmedia. Its free, unlimited hosting (I think), but it publishes the media on their site, so that might not appeal to some people. I used to host a really short, crappy nerf video.

Lol, I think a lot of the people in this thread were hoping for 120+ flat. <_<

But considering you are your nitefinder is probably more powerful than mine. Nice job.

Not exactly, thatís a hard* number to deem true even angled.
(hard*- even with great darts and a perfect barrel, also see "not impossible, but unlikely")

thats not a hard number to belive when you measure it out inside your high schools gymnasium with a measuring tape from the track team that they use for discus.. keep in mind, its with home made darts made for distance.. not crappy ones. and i will post flat distance sometime this week when i go back to school and have time to test it. later.

That sounds good, but I think it's one of those things I have to see to believe. Personally, I wouldn't want a pistol to be that powerful. I like in-your-face sort of action with my sidearms. Then again, if you use the thing as a primary, I can see that. My friend usually takes double NFs into war, and I have to admit it's pretty cool. Try to get the vid up, I'm pretty curious to see this.

If this really does go 120+ feet, angled or not, I want to know what you're putting in your NF. And a write-up would be awsome.

Yeah, so it does go 120+ angled... still havent figured out flat distance. NO TIME. but i will eventually do a write up under a new topic on the mods forum page... look forward too it. it is very useful information. I just did the same mods as i did to my gun to a friends tonight, and it functions the exact same, if not better, since it was my second of hte same type of mod.
