Renegade’s Basic Disk Shot Mod

Here it is, the Nerf Disk Shot.

Posted Image

The goal of this mod is to achieve more range using stock darts and tight stefans by removing the air restrictors and other mods.

Parts Needed

Teflon Tape (e-tape may suffice)

Dremel or hobby knife



Step 1 Remove all of the screws and take apart the gun. The bottom of the handle is glued on, so take a hobby knife and pry it off after taking out all of the screws.

Posted Image

The internals are very similar to that of a Nitefinder.

Step 2 Unscrew the two screws securing the plunger assembly. Take out that piece. Next disassemble the barrel as shown.

Posted Image

Step 3 Discard the small spring and three pronged orange piece. Take the orange piece with the long plastic stick and drill/cut it out.

Posted Image

The main restrictor is glued onto the plunger tube, unlike in a Nitefinder where it can come out. Cut the three orange plastic pieces holding it in place and sand it clean afterwards.

Posted Image

Step 4 Next we will be modding the plunger head. The entire plunger assembly is basically the same as in a Nitefinder. The spring is slightly longer and quite stronger than this Yellow NF’s spring.

Posted Image

Take your Teflon tape and wrap the plunger head with it. Insert it into the plunger tube to check how good of a seal you have. If your seal is too tight you may need to lube the gun for best performance.

Posted Image

Step 5 This step deals mostly with the barrel assembly. There is a set of holes in the barrel. Wrap the tape around these holes.

Posted Image

Then reassemble the barrel parts onto the plunger tube. Finally, wrap Teflon tape around these parts to ensure it is airtight.

Posted Image

Step 7 Screw the plunger assembly back in place. Screw the gun back together and you’re done. For best results add bands.

Posted Image

Rough Ranges

Stock Dart: 45 feet (without bands)

Stock Dart: 55 feet (with bands)






Advanced Mod coming soon....

nice basic renegade. Are those ranges flat or angled? Even if angled this has potential to be a great mod with spring addition.

For the most part, all measured ranges posted on the NIC are flat.

Nice mod.
Is the plunger tube smaller than one on a Nitefinder? And how many ammo holders does this thing have? In the picture, it looks like 5, but I can't tell exactly.

I really want to see how this turns out with heavier modification.

When did that gun come out? I knew about it by reading previews at NHQ but never knew when it came out since I cant log back to NHQ for the news.

Well, It was supposed to come out in the fall, but you know that Nerf releases stuff early. ;)

So you see a penguin walking down the street. Looks harmless right, so you keep on walking past him. You turn around to seem him walk away, only to find yourself staring down the barrel of a .38 revolver.

No, the complete set, including the disc launcher is coming out in the fall (or around that time). It's only the "expansion pack" that came out early.

So where the hell is everyone finding these? They're not on eBay, Amazon, or my Target. And that's pretty much all I have. Oh, and how much was it? $6?

Cool. That looks pretty nice. Is that a Handyman 9713 you used? I'm afraid to use those muthafuckers in most guns...

That's just a new nf spring for size comparison. Spring replacement will be in the Super Advanced write-up, following the Advanced write-up. Yes, I'm serious.

I know the feeling. I had a job with hasbro a couple years back. I myself may have changed the way you guys see the NF. But who knows. Basically they just asked us what they wanted in a nerf gun. I don't recall anyone in the room saying "laser pointer" but who knows. A couple weeks later I got the NF(first generation) and had to fill in this internet review thing for it. Same thing a couple months later but with the maverick. And then they didn't do any more nerf things, they started doing other hasbro things (ever heard of VideoNow? I've got like 50 discs if anyone's interested)and about a year and a half later they just stopped doing it. It must be hard paying 200 kids across the country $40 once a month for 2 years to do essentially nothing. Although sometimes they paid us in Nerf guns or videoNow discs. I need to get rid of those things, they died faster than video UMDs...

And that's how I got where I am today.

On an unrelated note, when I first opened my NF, I had no idea what I was doing (or that sites like these even existed) and threw out the whole AR assembly. Nothing a little E-tape couldn't/didn't fix.

and that's my daily rant. Good night.

So wait, no one else can get these for like 3 months? Damn...

At first glance, I thought you had integrated a long shot's frontal section with a NF. :D
After reading and seeing the rest of the pics, the thing that came to mind is a NF with a Crossfire's ammo holder.
The Disc Shot system itself looks like a NTT that launches disc. I wish they'd create an actual new gun, other then recycle the current generation's guns and games.
The NF $7, the expansion DS (NF+3 extra bullets) $15.
NTT $18, DS system (NTT but with moving targets) $50!!

That's a sick looking gun. I envy you. After wrapping the plunger head in e-tape will regular silicon lube for Airsoft guns work? Because thats the only thing i have... Other than some lard...

Whats the main difference in using e-tape and teflon tape? Does teflon create a better hold or seal?

Is this a new gun that Nerf has come out with? or is this one that has been out for a long time. I'm only asking cause I haven't seen this in any of the stores that I go too.

Is that teflon tape sticky? Because I have teflon that isn't sticky, and I would think that it would come off easily; however, I could be wrong.

In any case, good mod. Good luck with the advanced mod.

Teflon tape is not sticky. As long as you wrap it around a few times it wont come off.
