The ex-3 attaches to the n-strike :P and as I have read it has a weaker spring.

From what I understand, the Original NF has a stronger spring and more air restriction, whilst the newer EX3 has a weaker spring, and less air restriction than the original.
Correct me if I'm wrong.

From my observations, that's pretty much it.

I have owned 8 NiteFinders (old), and just bought an EX-3 a couple weeks ago.

Everything that everyone had complained about the EX-3 compared to the original NiteFinders was correct.

1) I remember a user saying that their plunger would "slow down" about halfway during firing if a dart wasn't in the barrel--I noticed this too, it never happened with the original NFs.

2) I recall someone was concerned that their darts didn't even leave the barrel when they fired them. Interestingly, when I fired darts from the original NF (grey ones) in the EX-3, they didn't leave the barrel. Same with the micros that come with the AT2000 twin packs. Only the original micro darts (yellow/ blue tips) fired out sufficiently, and only about 15 feet or so at that. I found that to be really odd.

3) I have had enough NFs to know, and I don't know if anyone else thinks the same, but the EX-3 seems to be built of a lot lighter/ thinner plastic than the original NFs. The spring does seem to feel 'weaker' than the original ones, too.

I'll be taking this one apart and modding it (CPVC) like the others, and I'm anticipating improved, but reduced performance. We'll just have to see. My son likes the fact that it attaches to his "N-Strike" Titan. He still won't let me fix up his Scout, however. :lol:

The old NF must be phenomenal. I have an EX-3, and I get the ranges everyone seems to have with the old ones (60-70'). I'm very pleased. I must have done a spectacular job of modding it. I used PVC/crayola, rubber bands, stretched spring, and a foam sheet behind the plungerhead (silencer). Mayhaps I should buy another and try to do it again.

I have a few old ones and one new one. I modded them all the same way by drilling the air restrictors and adding a few rubber bands and that's all. I seem to get very similar power out of the old NF and the EX3. If I had to separate them in any way, I actually think I get better accuracy out of the EX3.

I think if you put 2 of the springs together from the ex-3 you would get better performance.

A lot of thinking there a dark. ( 2 bigger than 1) but if you thought it through yes it would be stronger but also twice as long thus making it hard as hell to properley get the gun back together. The plunger and cassing probably also could not have taken the extra stress. the springs would increse the sprinage but that would not fix any of the other problems pineapple mentioned and i know you didnot say it would so dont retorte with well i didnot say that. i could say more but i will end it with i hate you.

What if you overlap the springs so it's just a little bigger than a spring alone?

i dont know for sure but if you did that i think the non overlaped part would compress 100% and the over laped part not much because its twice the strength.
If you did'nt understand that then in other words I dont think that would work.

It would still be twice as long when compressed. You'd never get the catch to engage.

Ah, good point. I never took that into consideration.
