Hi, I was sitting around one day and it hit me why not use the main casing of the maverick and replace the plunger with a night finder plunger, This is what I got.

Cut this part off of the maverick.

No I have not tryed this but I will once I get another night finder and maverick...
One problem I ran into is the fireing macanism. I will be tring to find a way to fix this soon.Tell me what you think of my idea. :) it should come out somewhat like this.

It would be cool, I think. But, how would the barrels rotate? Hand Rotate? And wouldn't you still lose some air? Well I guess if it's more powerful plunger, then more air would get through. Good luck.

Edit: Oh yeah, I forgot the barrel rotates with the trigger pull. Shows how much I like the maverick.

the barrels rotate on the trigger pull... i see no problem in changing the plunger.

He might lose some air but the original maverick plunger loses air anyway.

Hmm... I dont seem to be able to find any mod like this, oh well. I will try to do this in about 2 weeks becouse I am low on cash. Did you like the pictures I made for this?

Here it is:

nf tube/mav pics

They just put the nite finder plunger, spring, catch piece, and plunger rod in the maverick. They cut down the plunger tube so it would fit and used the 3 pronged piece that stops the plunger from going out the front of the nf to hold the spring in the back.

Seriously kickin pics, did you use a tablet? Off topic...

I'm probably going to sound like a broken record, but if you try any sort of NF/Mav integration, be really careful and NASA style precise. I tried to put the NF internals into my mav earlier this summer and did a little bit of a sloppy job drilling out the place for the plunger tube and the whole thing didn't work. Another trick is getting the trigger to work with the NF internals, it's going to require precise gluing. If you pull it off, you have my compliments.

No I didn't use a template I just looked at my maverick and my nightfinder and drew them on the computer in paint. :ph34r: I was going to just use my broken maverick and buy a new nightfinder but I got my nightfinder to work today! B) So I will try to do this mod once I get the cash.
