I actually do not have photoshop yet. I use GIMP and Paint.net to do all my photo related work. I made this one a while ago with the intention of putting it up here. Here it is:

Anyone else into photoshop?

Firefly Modification.

20 May 2008 - 10:17 PM

I've always liked fireflys more than mavericks. So here is a very simple modification to give the firefly another 15-20 feet.

Step 1: You'll want to follow all the instructions of taking the air restrictors out as seen here:

Step 2: Get your Silicone that looks like this:

They have these at your local home depot. Take your plunger tube and apply a coat over it so it looks like this:

This drastically increases the seal and already gives it another 5-10 feet.

Step 3: Add another spring. I used one out of a broken maverick.

Step 4: Add a thicker O-ring and improve the seal. Lubricate it well with silicone.

Assemble your firefly back together and have fun with it!

Ranges are 55-60 feet.

Crayola Barreled Nite-finder Write-up

12 April 2008 - 08:44 PM

I know there are many ways that people have been able to get barrels onto the nite-finder, forgive me if it's already been done, but this is a very easy way to crayola barrel your nite-finder.

You will need:

  • Nite-Finder
  • Hot glue gun
  • Crayola marker
  • Screwdriver
  • Sandpaper
  • Exacto-knife
Step 1:
Prepare the Crayola Barrel. Cut the marker on the sections indicated below. Throw the felt stuff away.

It should look like this:

Step 2:
Unscrew your gun. Don't forget the screw by the battery case and don't let any parts fly out when you open it. The guts should look like this:

Then take out the two screws holding the plunger tube down. After you seperate the plunger tube, these goodies will be inside of it:

Step 3:
Now take out the exacto knife and cut this piece:

Sand it so it looks like this:

Make sure the back end of your crayola barrel can fit inside the hole tightly.

Step 4:
Using your exacto knife, carefully scrape out the center of this piece:

Make it look like this:

Then, fit the two pieces together like so:

Now to get rid of some dead space. Fill the three empty areas with hot glue.

So it looks like this:

Step 5:
This step is to make your gun look nicer and a bit more stable. So this part is optional. Take this piece right here:

and make the hole a bit wider by sanding it down like mad so that your crayola barrel can fit into it with ease.

Take the fin that is on top of the stock barrel and break it off.

Take the fin and put it into the gun where to two holes are. Lastly, wrap some e-tape around the barrel so that the annoying crayola logo doesn't show.

Step 6:
Add a stronger spring, lube it up, assemble the plunger tube back on, and screw your gun back together. It should look like this:

Now all it needs is a awesome paintjob like this:

I know you are all wondering about ranges. Ranges are in the mid 60's.
