Defective Nite Finder
Posted 22 January 2006 - 11:15 PM
The nite finder bearly works. When it shoots, it shoots alright (around the same distance as the maverick), but it misfires at least 50% of the time. The pull goes in very slowly and the dart doesn't even leave the barrel. Is this normal, or should I try to exchange it?
The STS works ok, but leaks air bad. I'm going to open it and try to fix it; does any one have any tips? Thanks.

If it is, this is most likely an air restrictor problem.
Yes, the restrictors on most guns nowadays are similar t othe new BBB, they are spring loaded so that the arrow/dart depresses the spring, opening the air valve, and allowing the air to escape. Make sure the dart is all the way in the barrel.
It could also be the type of NF. Is it the EX-3 with the rail on top? If so, this would also be the reason why the handle retracts slowly (this one I can't expalin) and why it sucks.
You seriously need to remove the restrictors either way.
Have a fix for some foam? Come on in, the doors are open!

If you can't return it, try to increase the force behind the plunger by adding rubber bands or bungees. In addition, reinforce the plunger so any chances that it would wobble/break are minimized.

The step after that is an easy barrel replacement, as you probably know. After it's beefed up, the NiteFinder shouldn't disappoint you. If it does, let us know.
