While taking apart my crossfire, I noticed that the small green clip on top of the gun fell right out of the slider upon unscrewing it.
The color clashes horribly with the gun, it looks stupid, and its useless unless I get one of the big dart tag guns...and even then clipping them together is kinda stupid. So I was going to dispose of it. But then I also noticed that it clicks perfectly into the N-Strike tracks on the guns.
So I decided to make a scope, using that as the base so it could be detachable. For the lenses, I took one of those little "pocket explorer" things that little kids have (I dug mine up from an old toybox).
It's kind of a 5-in-1 type thing with a compass and a mirror and shit like that. You can probably find it at any toy or hobby store. But at any rate, I pulled off the two opposing lenses that you would look through to use the thing as a pair of binoculars.
Now, I used 1/2" PVC for the scope itself, but I actually found that the walls were a bit thick and, in the end, narrowed my scope of view when looking through it. So, you may want to use something with narrower walls or a larger size piece of PVC pipe. Anyway, because of the size of pipe that I was using, the small lens was the perfect size to be attached. As such, I did not need to alter it, but I needed to pop the bigger lens out of its plastic frame and file it down to make it small enough to fit nicely when attached to the other end of the pipe. Here's my filed-down lens:
Okay, nobody post please. Need to start a new post.
