I just finished my prototype of a NF rifle. I call it a rifle since it has the barrel length and plunger size of a large rifle, even though it has a small pistol body. Here it is:

As you can see, the plunger tube has been replaced with a PETG tube that is twice as long as the stock one. Two NF plungers have been cut up and spliced together to make a very long rod. The regular spring has been replaced by a gigantic spring from McMaster, the same wire thickness as you would normally mod a NF with, but twice as long. This gives the plunger enough air capacity to operate with an 8" barrel. Here it is cocked:

The barrels are coupled, so I can easily change the barrel length or type. I also made a 3-barrel shotgun attachment, it functions quite well.

This is just a test model to make sure all the parts can take the force. I forgot to add padding to the plunger head, so it will probably explode soon. That's OK cause I've been planning on making a plunger rod and head from scratch anyway. Once I accomplish this I'll be able to turn any NF into one of these beasts, the only parts I need from the gun is the body and trigger mechanism. The next version will look as good as it works. I really want to add a foregrip, since it is really too powerful to hold like a pistol. Here are more pics for the hell of it. Check out the video here:

You seem to know a lot about nite finders, so do you suggest a higher tension spring, or a stretched spring in the gun?

Why did you quote the entire fucking post? That's really long and unnecesary.

Blasphemy. I think you need to throw yourself against a wall, drive to store and buy yourself a brain.

I saw your video on Youtube before I joined NerfHaven and I was like, "Whoa! This is tight! I wan'na do that!" I like this mod so much. I got my Nitefinder 2 days ago and I really want to do this. I hope I can mod it as successfully as you did. Once again, that is tight!

Look at it. You think a NF spring will stretch that long?

Don't post in months-old topics unless you have something significant to add.


This is not only months old, but also a year old. Only to add praise and tell people of your anticipation. This is bad seat moderation, but do not necro again.

Kbarker used carbon rods, but its been done with polycarbonate strips and I personally used music wire. Now that you have your answer try not to post in any more old threads. PM me or KBarker if you need further assistance.

Alright, it's enough guys. If repetition was really an effective learning tool we wouldn't have dozens of these god damned threads brought back to life.
