Great mod, Nice write up. It was very clear to read. I couldn't get the video to work but what are the ranges like- 60-65ish? Great pictures too!

Thanks. The video will work after a minute or two, you just have to wait. The ranges will vary depending on the spring, the seal of the plunger, and the seal of the turret. The other nitemav I made was banded because I used a wimpy spring. It got 60-65'. This has one of my strong springs in it eliminating the need for bands. Just from the velocity that the darts hit with, I would guess this one could top those ranges, but that isn't for certain. It gets roughly modded NF ranges...

Dang, I might just buy a maverick for this mod, I have extra NFs. So the plunger barrel of the NF fit perfectly into the layout of the maverick? How did you secure the barrel? Nice mod though!

Does the movie have to be in Quicktime format?

Other than that, the mod looks very clean and well done! Good job, now just see about making that movie avi, mpg, or anything but mov.

The NF cylinder fits inside of the maverick very tightly AFTER you gut the inside of it. You have to do lots of custom cutting and fitting. They I hot glued the cylinder in and it's placement is just about perfect.

Yeah, my camera only uses quicktime MOV. files and I hate it. If anyone knows of some free conversion software, I'd greatly appreciate it. I tried to convert it with a cheap program and it didn't work very well. Here it is anyway:

Cartoon that is almost exactly how I made my nitemav but I had a NF firing case inside the mav. It doesnt work right now due to the air seal problem.

Thanks for the conversion, it's good enough.

So you're pretty much just pulling back the plunger handle as fast as you can? Looks like you can unload those 6 shots pretty quick, nice job!

This seems like a very good mod if you can pull it off.

Very nice, Carrtoon. very good write-up, with excellent pictures (As always). Good, clean, comprehensive layout.


I'm very glad to see someone post a write-up, but I'm also sort of sad because now many, many people will make them, and I won't feel special.

Oh well. It was just a matter of time.


Again, good job, as always.



Sincereley,
Pat

Bladder?


What bladder?


A bladder is an expandable tube of some sorts (Inner tuber, bike tire tube, etc) attached to an inlet and outlet valve. When a pump is attached to the inlet valve and pumped, air goes into the bladder and stored at fairly high pressure (High for childs toys, anyway). When a trigger mechanism is engaged, the outlet valve is activated, and the bladder releases the high-pressure air at a slow and (Fairly) constant rate.


That being said, there is nothing even remotley resembling a bladder in neither the Maverick nor the Nite Finder.


Do you mean the Mavericks plunger? The two orange parts the the main spring pushes together and the plunger catch are called, collectivley, the plunger assembly.




Sorry if that sounded condescending. I was just sort of confused when the term 'bladder' was used, as the Maverick is a springer, and has no bladder. Not even an airtank.


Oh, and a dremeled out Maverick casing isn't much to see. Just get a Nite-Finder plunger, a Maverick casing, and start cutting out all the bars and ridges that hold the plunger assmebly in. But, in the upper left hand corner, near the Maverick catch, leave that veritcal bar in, so you can brace the NF plunger near it.

Just sort of cut until the plunger fits: it's not really that hard. It just takes patience, and constant trying-to-fit-the-plunger-in-and-cutting-more-stuff.








Sincereley,

Truly an inspiration. I wasn't sure if the NF plunger could functionally fit into a maverick, but now I know. I won't hesitate to purchse 2 mavericks and transplant as soon as I can. Heh, anyone interested in 2 full ppk nf (bondo) shells?

By the way, extremely clean mod, nice!

Me likey!

I'm not a huge fan of the Maverick, and yet I'm a huge fan of the NF. Perhaps an integration of the two will really make things better. I really like the concept behind the Maverick, but I only use it for indoor wars for obvious reasons. But this is a great idea, I really should look into it.

Nice work, it's very clean and it looks fairly sexy.

If you want to make the foam gasket without having to cut up arrows just go to a craft store and buy craft foam. It's dirt cheap in sheet packs.

To answer your question, no. The barrel replacement is just in addition to the power boost already gotten by the gun itself.

Little side note, though...

Hey, guys, since this has already been resurrected for a short time, I still have not been able to find pictures of the inside of a NiteMav/MavFinder. I've been racking my brain trying to figure out how to get the guts of a NiteFinder into a Mav, and have failed. I've dremmeled as much as I can, and still I can't seem to get it to work properly.

I've done extensive searching for a while in the forums and elsewhere, and still can't figure it out. Is there someone out there who can help me?

Sorry to continue the dead thread, but this is driving me nuts!

Thanks,
Kalamets



P.S. - This is my first post (Though I have lingered for a long time, I am in NO WAY an expert), and I am a proud member of this fine community. Everyone keep up the awesome work!!

Yeah, I've seen that write up at least ten times, but what I really need to see is the dremmel work done to actually fit in the NiteFinder plunger. I have used this write up to the best of my abilities, but until I can see how the plunger tube fits in, I'm at a dead end.
