1)a. Take off all the screws, don't forget the ones under the cocking mechanism.
b. Open it up and figure out what you want to do. If you want a spring replacement, take out the stock spring and put in one of your own. If you want a barrel peg removal, you're gunna have to saw the barrel in half (Crossfires are weird like that), take out the peg, and then put the two barrel halves back together.
c. Put everything back together, screws in, yata.
2) Resistor... uh... restrictor? Restrictors restrict the flow of air, it's just something you would put in the way of the barrel. Stock restrictors are usually some kind of an X with pegs coming up through and a spring behind, so it'll only fire if there's a dart in the barrel.

As for "Resistor..."...?
3)You don't. Before you cut it, you straighten it. You take your 240" and thumbtack it in straight lines or run it around your bed, and wait two weeks. Then you cut it.

Alright I'm getting crap for this b/c it's my 9th post today or s'm but anyways.

Just look straight down your barrel. Notice how you can't see the plunger? What you see instead is the restrictor. From what I recall, the Crossfire's isn't as much a restrictor as a method of holding in a barrel peg, but all the same it slows down the flow of air. To take it out, just do the saw in half thing and make sure you stick your pocketknife in the back half and pry out anything in the way.

Alright. People, unless you're posting useless shit, or do the 10+ posts for day for over 3 days straight, it isn't that big of a deal. As long as you're contributing, you're fine.

So Flaming Hilt, don't worry about it.

If anyone is posting too much, they'll probably get a PM from one of the admins first. Unless Talio catches you, in which case you're just fucked.

As for the restrictor, I'd recommend just drilling it straight out with a proper-sized drill bit. I attempted to use a dremel and a smaller drill bit since I was too lazy to get the actual drill press out, and it took forever. So I wouldn't recommend that course of action.

To straighten darts, cut them to your desired length, then put all of your cut up foam backer rod into a pillow case. Once you do this, tie the top of the pillow case and throw it into a clothes drier. Keep it in there for aprox 2 min, but no more then that because you could burn them. Once the 2 min is up, take out the pillow case and stick a hair drier into the top of it. Tie the bag around the tip of the hair dryer. Put the hair dryer on "high" for 1 minute. Then take out the foam and it will be straight...gauranteed. Hope this helps.

Note: The above varies depending on how many darts you are making at the same time.

I make smaller batches, like around 50-100, and I only use the hairdryer method for about 10-20 seconds. Any more and my darts start melting. The best way to do it is to carefully watch your darts until they are straight and not melted.

ya thanks for the help. I now have a bit more understanding of modding. The only thing I think I have left to ask is does anyone have a picture of the inside of a modded crossfire or nightfinder because those are the only two guns I wasnt to risk modding cause I have 0% experiance in modding.

I'll give you two more posts to fix your current habit of using bad punctuation and grammar, or you're gone.

I of course, do not speak for any of the other admins, whom you may have/probably pissed off already.

There is also a very nice NF mod in the mods section of the site. Go to the home page and look left. There are a couple others stacked there too. If you ever need to try and find a mod, go to www.nerfworld.com and go to the mods directory. That helped me out a bunch.

A 1/2" drill bit works great for that.
