If your talking about the piece I think you are. Open the gun up and make sure that the screw at the end is very tight. If there's no screw well then there is your problem.

I'm anxiously awaiting the hasbro over throw.

You either forgot to put the screw back in, as McFlurry said, or the threads have worn out between the plunger head and the plunger shaft. A screw should do the trick, just make sure the threads of the screw are able to dig into the plunger shaft, and make sure you don't crack anything in the process.

Yes I think the threads(sp?) are worn out
Any way to fix/ repair this? Or do I have to buy a new Nitefinder

This happened to me, too. Sucks because it was my friends like 1st gen. NF, so the strong spring makes more problems. I've tried plumber's goop and loctite household cement. Now I'm using JB Weld. I'll post when it's done if that works or not.

I really should reevaluate my Nerf carreer. I have been ultimated multiple times in a war, shot by a girl with an arced NF, and EMBARASSED by a 6 year old in quidditch on xbox. What am I doing with my life?

You could probably just use a screw with a slightly larger diameter to make your own threads... Just gluing the plunger head to the plunger shaft might not be too durable, due to the lack of area to be bonded.

I have successfully used a larger screw to correct this problem before. If you want to go the glue route use Dev Con plastic welder, it's available at wal mart and extremely strong.
