This is my first mod and post on this site so take it easy with the critisizim. The mod is mostly cosmetics except for the AR removal and adding an extra spring. I get a range of about 50-60ft (maybe around 70ft with a good stefan). Here is a video of it on youtube:

I just need an idea for a clip now so plz. give me some input.

P.S. The darts dont fishtail as long as you use stefans and sometimes velcro dart tag darts work too. Otherwise just wrap the tip of the dart with a thin strip of tape and that works too. By the way, yes, the darts do fire within the scope.

It looks very sturdy and actually very comfortable. I would suggest a clip mod to the breech though if you plan to take the versitility of the NF away with a breech and use it as a semi-primary.

How do your darts shoot in it? The barrel looks hell-a-long. Fishtailing?

First of all, welcome to the 'Haven. That looks pretty cool, but I have a few questions. Does it shoot anywhere inside the scope (or sight, I don't know which)? If so, from how far away? As far as a clip goes you could do: Ompa's Clip, Renegade's Clip, or a Breechless Deodorant Clip. Or you could do a pump action clip. (and no, the pump action clip isn't only for the AT2K.) Or you could come up with your own design. Impress us, and do something new. ^_^

You're going to want to seal that breech with something. If that's CPVC, and I believe it is, try to find a large size brass tubing or bore out some Sch 40 PVC with a 11/16 drill bit.
If that's PVC, use one of those Qwik fix repair couplings. Cut it out like so:

You could nest a section of brass into the end there and get fairly decent results.

And don't forget to reinforce the catch and pluger shaft! You don't want anything flying out because of that new spring.

Here's how.

Step 1:
Buy repair coupling.

Step 2:
Take repair coupling, and mark how far down the "expanding" part slides.

Step 3:
Mark how much of the pipe you want to cut away. (The expanding part has to completely slide over it.)

Step 4:
Using a Dremel tool, cut away the marked section.

Your Done!

Now that's pretty cool. That thing has a whole lot of potential. It's great without a clip but i'd like to see it with one alot. I was planning on trying to cut down the nitefinder as much as possible with my spare but you've just changed my mind.....

How did you make that sight-- it looks really stylish.

a few questions:

how did you make sure that the "x" in the scope was in the exact center?

Do you have something other than duct tape holding it together?

why the second night finder right before the breech?

Alice came to the fork in the road.
"Which road do I take?" she asked.
"Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat.
"I don't know," Alice answered.
"Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."

You should know that repair couplings have a bad seal when non engaged.
We should stop calling out/making fun of/pissing GC off. He's actually contributed and is available for trade. He's a better than average member no doubt. Got your back Cole.

Yes, Yes and what do you mean by that?

I made sure that the X was in the center and I hot glue gunned the gun together I just used duct tape to reinforce it. What do you mean by second nitefinder?
