How Do I Mod An 'orange Logo Nitefinder'?

23 March 2010 - 07:36 PM

I first want to say that, YES I SEARCHED THE FORUMS AND GOOGLE. Sorry to shout, btw. Well, I've just bought 2 Nitefinders and they're both the orange/black logo versions, and the ARs (and plunger tube, for that matter) are completely glued together. Now I know others have had this problem, but I haven't found any way around it. I'm wanting to do the following mods:
  • PETG Barrel
  • AR/restrictor peg removal
  • Extra O-ring
  • MAYBE a new spring
Without having to:
A) Use a dremel (I haven't got one), drill (unless I absolutely HAVE to), or
B) Make a new plunger tube
I hate to sound like a noob here, but the only mod I've done before is a stormfire O-ring mod. I also hate to make a new topic when it's not absolutely 100% needed, but this seems to fit that requirement.
So yeah, I've tried boiling water, and it almost melted the plastic. I tried acetone nail polish remover on my stormfire and it SERIOUSLY messed it up, and I've also tried an X-acto knife and the glue was just too thick, the seam too thin. I'm out of ideas, so anything (besides sawing the thing in half) is welcome. The reason I say I want to do this without a drill is because, like I said, I want to add a PETG barrel, which as far as I've seen, needs the AR 'container' to be opened up, which can't happen with the internals glued up, which brings me back to my original question.

Thanks for spending your time reading this post, and thanks in advance for any ideas you guys might have.

A Small Question...

Ok, I've been wondering this for SO long - How EXACTLY do you have a war when you live nowhere NEAR the east/west coasts? I mean, there is absolutely NO possible way I could take a 5-7 hour drive to one of the big wars, just to have to drive all the way back? I hate Arkansas...
