Im quite pleased with it. I through an ar15 spring on there. Ranges vary from 60-75. Not super great but I think I know what the problems are. Im not getting a great seal around the coupler and the 1 ¼’’ pvc. That can butcher it along with the fact that that style of plunger head sucks. Im planning on doing a rubber washer type of replacement. But I don’t really have the time or money to do that right now. One ive done that the ranges should be a little better than that of a bbb considering the plunger stroke is 6’’ long. This is also a great alternative if you ever lose those orange nubs that go on the side. Here are some pictures of the finished product.
Ive notice that lots of people recently have been making some form of a night finder rifle, or crossbow. Either way its still the same thing in my opinion. All of you who did make one, inspired me to create something of my own. I initially try to be uniqe and try new things. Since people like to see new things on here… I present to you a work in proggress:
<b> The Night Finder 3 in 1 !</b>
Now as you’ve probably noticed there is a second trigger. Hhhmmm… I wonder what I could do with that? Integrate an airtech? I used a PETG pipe (I think) as the plunger tube. Im not sure where to get it cause I found it in the trash at school. It was leftovers from a rocket project. Lol
I do plan on adding an airtech in there and im in the prosses of doing so. It fits rather snug and it will be a nice back-up shot. I have different ideas on where to add the pump but I cant decide. I don’t want anything attached to the side. To me that looks lazy, especially if its taped on.
Here are some inside pics…
As you can see there arnt any inside reinforcements. I do plan on adding a few. I do have some heavy duty outside reinforcements. The gun looks a whole lot better without them, but that would risk the destruction of the gun. We don’t want that to happen. So its on there.
Now for the plunger. There are some differences. To attach the rods, I cut up some nails and pushed them into the little slots.
Nothing new there.
In front of the catch area I added a little bit of polycarbonate inside the plunger. ¼ in fits perfect.
Just slab it on with lots of super glue and it should never come off.
I noticed that air would escape in the area where the plunger head attaches to the rod. A simple solution I came up with is an o-ring. I used the ring from an airtech turret.
You can see that in the image above and below.
It is coupler modded. It seems stupid not to. I used the original barrel to attach the coupler onto. I then added an o-ring that I found layind around. This insures that theres no run away air. Here are some close up pics…
Damn picture limit!
More pics for the fun of it.
Ive only fired this thing a couple of times but from what ive seen its really consistent. Im really pleased with it, although, I don’t know what the ranges are (never messured it).
I believe its on the hundred mark. It has more range than my airtech or longshot.
A long time ago I had done this to my nightfinder. http://nerfhaven.com...ags_nitefinder/ I was pleased with it but there was one thing that pissed me off. The barrel kept falling off. So I came up with something new.
Materials: Dremal, 9/16 brass, Drill.
First open your gun and take out the plunger (take out the barrel too, you don’t need it). At the end of the plunger there will two air restrictors. One of them has a peg. Rip that peg off. Then dremal around it so that the 9/16 brass can slide through. It should end up looking like this,
Now to the second air restrictor. Drill a descent sized hole into it (one big enough so that you’re dremal can fit in). Dremal it out in tell it’s flush with the sides. 9/16 brass should be air tight when placed in. Here is a picture of it with the hole drilled into it (Im sorry it’s all dark and blurry),
Once you stick the brass into the second air restrictor, slip the first one over it so that it looks like this,
Glue it altogether and put your nightfinder back together and test it out. Your barrel is now straight, durable, and level. My nightfinder can achieve ranges of 60'.
