    Hello Oznerf,

    I am new and I wanted to introduce myself.
    I would like to talk about my first mod, the longshot, I am open to any suggestions on how to improve it.

    After destroying the front gun I decided to integrate a nite finder.
    The other mods include:

    - Brass breach and barrel

    - Reinforced bolt sled, catch and trigger

    - Padded plunger head

    - After market spring from Silent Scope

    - Keyring trigger for the nite finder

    I also used 50mm DWV to tidy up the front gun integration.

    So I'll be giving it a lick of paint over the weekend and if the weather permits I'll be doing a range test as well, I've fired it at home and it packs quite a punch, however 'Im interested in any suggestions on how to improve the performance. Also the nite finder is stock except for the AR removal and i made the chamber air tight by using some left over brass.

    I'll update next week.

    Peace!

    That's fair sick. Could you post a closer pic of the way that the Nitefinder is integrated?
    I'm interested. Thanks

    For a first mod, that is awesome. Keep up the great work. I'm sure most of us started out with taking the air restrictors out of an Maverick, but nothing like this!

    Kablamotastic that's for sure.

    Which parts of Austarlia are you from? Can you please update your location so it's easier to organise wars amongst other Nerf enthusiasts who live in your area. Thanks =).

    Thanks for the welcome,

    Here are some close ups of the nite finder intergration.

    I hope they help, as I said I used a 200mm piece of 50mm DWV to cover the hack job on the nite finder and i used a 50mm DWV internal cap to close up the front.

    I hope you find the images helpful.

    All I can say is that it will no doubt shit over a front gun... the Nitefinder will definitely get pop some ass with good ranges as a 'pistol nade launcher' thingo mabobby thing.

    I hope to see you at wars! There are some hardcore modders to compete with, and that includes some young 13YOs who have blasters that leave welts.

    Nice work on the integration.

    Why don't you look at doing a write-up on the integration, and share the love!! We'll definitely find a place for it in our modification directory.

    You get extra Clunk points if you shoot littlebro with it at a war!! Oh, and save a couple rounds for Oxy as well

    There's some good lads in Brissy, who'll definitely look after you if you feel the need to attend a war!!

    Cheers,

    Hi all,

    As I said I've been painting my gun this weekend I'm not completely finished but I thought I would post a few pics and briefly explain my Nitefinder integration plus the general mods.
    I wish I could do a better write-up but the guns already finished.

    First the general mods.

    I won't go into the brass barrel and breech because I just followed the existing tutorials and it worked sweet.

    The after market spring required extra reinforcement, I have seen people use allen keys in the bolt sled I didn't have two the same size so I used some wire coat hanger titan bond epoxy.


    [img]My First Mod Sdc11124 [/img]

    Other reinforcements include a new catch spring, I found at bunnings, which is hot glued in place on the catch. Titan bond epoxy was used to fill in some of the free space on the trigger and catch to make them more solid.



    [img]My First Mod Sdc11125 [/img]

    Something I need is a new material to pad my plunger head, the foam I used doesn't hold its shape for very long so it offers little protection. Any suggestions would be good. I've also improved the seal on the plunger head by using a size 14 plumbers o-ring in conjunction with the stock o-ring, I found this was perfect to fill the extra space and stop the stock o-ring from moving around. With some silicone grease it works great.

    [img]My First Mod Sdc11126 [/img]

    Ok now the Nitefinder integration.

    All I can really do is show you photos of the finished product so they may not be the most helpful.
    [img]My First Mod Sdc11127 [/img][img]My First Mod Sdc11128 [/img]

    Basically I took the internals out and used a small amount of hot glue combined with trial and error to get the positioning just right. After marking the position I used titan bond 2 part epoxy and a bead of hot glue around the edges to permanently attach it to the front of the Longshot.
    The 50mm DWV I used has to be attached when the Nitefinder and Longshot are dry and completely put back together, to ensure it won't interfere with any of the blasters functions. Then I used, the same method I used to attach the the Nitefinder to the Longshot, on the 50mm DWV.

    There is a con, after this mod the blaster is very difficult to take apart and put back together.

    Peace!
