Nite Finder Mod
Posted 16 August 2007 - 10:30 AM
I modded my Nite finder, with a mod of my own, trying to make it shoot mega stefans. (which it does) I can get maximum distances of about 50'-56'. I took all air restrictors out except for the one that goes over the plunger tube. I then used electrical tape and taped on a 7/8 inch diameter H/C Pex tube onto the gun. The tubing ended up being 6 and a half inches long. I then used more tape to secure the barrel so it wouldn't go out of place. The gun shot well and was very accurate. The only downside is that I had to load the stefans so that the tip was right at the tip of the barrel. A couple days ago, I accidentally pushed it to the bottom of the barrel and forgot about the dart, I then loaded a second and fired it. I soon noticed the next dart became convieniently placed at the end of the barrel allowing me another shot only by cocking it again. I can shoot up to three darts consecutively. I will try to get pictures.

But you will get a decrease in range with that (just a little though), and you might want to glue the barrel on.
If you want better ROF add a 1/2 PVC coupler, and 1/2 PVC barrels reloaded and ready.

P.S.: The clipped Nite Finder was what you found, done by KBarker, but this is different.

It does not suck in the darts when I cock it back.

About a quarter of the time, I'd get a double shot--where both shots fire at once.
Another quarter of the time, neither shot will make it out of the barrel.
The other half of the time it'd work the way it was supposed to, but manytimes power losses occured.
The main inconsistencies come from the air not going around the dart at the back of the barrel. The dart at the back is just pushing the dart at the front out. When it works right, the dart at the back stops moving after the collision. When you get a double shot, the rear dart keeps moving with the front dart. When it doesn't fire at all, the front dart is usually a little fatter than the rear one.
There is a thread with my version of the in-line clip (thank you to Carbon for the original design). It allows air flow to run past the darts at the rear of the barrel to the front of the barrel. This way you get more consistent firing that is not dependent on how fat your stefans are in relation to others.
