Disk Shot Mod (advanced)
Posted 18 August 2007 - 04:17 PM
Here it is, the Nerf Disk Shot.
The goal of this mod is to achieve more range using stefans by removing the air restrictors and replacing the stock barrel with one made of PETG.
PETG a little over 4 ¼ inches
Hot glue w/glue gun
Dremel or hobby knife
Let me start off by saying use whatever barrel material fits your darts. But for this specific mod, you would need either PETG or Brass.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Step 4 Take the two pieces pictured below and sand the inside of them until the PETG will fit inside it.
Step 5 Put the end of the PETG where it is in the picture below. Superglue, then hot glue it to make it stay and be airtight.
Next superglue the front orange barrel piece in place.
Step 6 The last thing I did was superglue and hot glue the entire barrel assembly onto the plunger tube. Then I wrapped it in some E-tape for added support. Screw it all back into the gun.
Finally, screw the whole gun back together.
Stefans: 60ish feet (lightly banded)

My only addition is to make sure that all the superglue is dry before hot gluing, as otherwise the fumes will be strong enough to make your eyes water.
For maximum efficiency?
1. Pump up. Count how many pumps.
2. Keep going until you hear a loud "bang".
3. Subtract one pump from the total. Rebuild your air bladder.
There you go.

As usual perfect job. Looks very nice.

Also, unless I'm mistaken, what you are calling the 'main air restrictor' is actually the plunger stop...it doesn't restrict airflow. What is the plunger slamming against now, the stub of your barrel?
I am a little curious, though...what makes this an advanced mod? It's not even a spring replacement...

Don't call it a comeback, I never left.

1.Looks good! I've always thought CPVC was better for springers, as the friction lets pressure build.
2.Also, unless I'm mistaken, what you are calling the 'main air restrictor' is actually the plunger stop...it doesn't restrict airflow. What is the plunger slamming against now, the stub of your barrel?

1. This PETG has a tight fit on my FBR, so PETG was a better choice for me.
2. I would think that it's an air restrictor since it is a large plastic piece over where the air comes out. The plunger still hits the piece, just the sides of it. My friends and I have done this to our nf's for years now and have had no problems.
3. I would think that this mod is more advanced than my basic write-up. Since it involves replacing the stock barrel. I rarely replace springs for mod write-ups as it completely changes the range of a gun and is hard for people to find the exact same spring as the one used.

Excellent Mod Ren... But this once again continues to confirm my belief that this is just a repackaged Old Edition NF... Which is a good thing.
Sorry, not exactly sure what you mean by repackaged old edition NF. Does it have the same spring, etc. as the old edition?
Also Renegade, nice mod, very clean.

Just thought I'd put that there.

Anyway, great mod.
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.

Now I LOVE Nerf!

You probabally already know this but they are selling the full set with the launcher and everything at target now.
About how much are you holding in the pictures on the spools?
A shit ton.

To answer your question, yes. Although, it would help to have a spring from a TTG or something similar. The closer the spring's length to the NF's, the better.
