Some Night Finder Questions
Posted 31 May 2005 - 02:00 PM
I just have some questions about modding the night finder, any help would be apreciated.
1)For the NF mod on the site, where can I obtain PETG besides on the internet?
2)What would be better for the NF mod, out of: PETG, brass, PVC, or a crayola barrel?(crayola barrel seems to short)
3)What is the elastic string, and a cocking mechananisim mentioned here?
4)Where are the air restrictors, and what do I do with them?
Sorry, if I asked a stupid question. I have no experience in Nerf, and have been modding Super Soakers for a couple of years.

1- I've searched for a thread on here, and other sites for that matter, on the topic of finding stores that sell PETG, and have found none. Contact frank8715, because thats where i got mine.
2- I think either PETG or crayola will work, because i've done both and they work about the same ( crayola works better.) Here is the mod I used to PPK mod my NF, which was the crayola one, but my crayolas were shorter, so i only used a 5 1/2" PVC case around the crayola, and it works for me.
4- To expand on what grunty said, a good way to find air restrictors is to look through the barrel with a flashlight, or take the gun apart and look through it. Anything that blocks your view, except for the plunger that is, is an air restrictor, and you will get better ranges from better airflow if you dremel/punch some holes through it.
Hope this helps and good luck

Great first post, welcome
By the way you can find bass at most hobby shops that carry supplies for model cars and trains. 9/16 is the normal size that most people use, but carry a dart and just match it to your foam; you want a perfect fit, not to loose not to tight.
A good night finder mod; Raggy used PETG because thatís all he had at the time and the guns was something new and he wasnít sure if it was worth brass.

btw: I get 45' with only the new spring and restrictors removed. I'm adding a barrel when I can.

Usually when you pick up that pretty new strong ass spring, itís thick coils glistening in the sun, itís love at first site. But the thing is, sheíll break your heart. Most of the time the stronger springs you get from a hardware store, theyíre thick coils and few of them, often to long or to short. And remember lads itís not the SIZE that counts (dare I say itís not even the length?) what really matters is how the spring is made; some springs can look week but often much stronger than those thick gaudy springs whoreing them selves up and down the hardware selves. Just remember, when it comes to springs, experimentation is good, but donít be a spring whore. You never know when one day youíll come home and old faithful Mrs. Rubber Band has left you.

Most barrels are 3-5 inches or so 4 being the norm, but like I said your in uncharted water (for me anyway) as far as barrel material. The 1/2 copper is rather large bore and you shouldnít need much because chances are itís not helping a lot.

PS: I don't really worry with spring replacement. Good ole' rubber bands always do the trick.
