    Don't drill out the Air-Restrictor of an Nite-Finder

    On a whim, I used hot water to negate the glue, and checked the job I did with a drill on its AR. This is what I found

    NF AR Warning Dscf2111

    The drill has destroyed the place where the plunger is supposed to sit. The black the inside of it is where the O-ring sat,instead of the plastic.

    If you have used a drill, check out the internal, to see if it is too broken to salvage.

    I am going to salvage all the parts i can, and dump the rest. It was a first attempt, and i have another NF to put the C368 spring in, so not all is lost <:)

    There is nothing wrong with removing the Air Restrictor from a Nitefinder,You must of done something when you removed the AR, I have modified 3 Nitefinders (All with C836's) and I have not had a single problem with any of them.

    Just remember to open the blaster apart. You can also remove air restrictors through the front with just a hammer and flat head screw driver. Works wonders.

    Most of the time with todays nite-finders,the ARs pop out as soon as u open the gun so all you have to do is remove the peg.

    Don't miss? Drill straight with the correct sized bit and you'll be fine.

    Hot water works best.

    That's debatable, there is no "best" way to remove an air restrictor.

    Yes there is. Which ever way gets the cleanest air flow.

    I'm a fan of drill for the bulk of the work, then clean up with a round hand file. Provided you're getting a perfectly smooth air flow, you're as good as it's going to get.

    The only "debatable" bit is which method is the best way...

    There's always a preferred method of doing every task. It just depends on how you look at it - eg: the safest way, easiest way or cleanest way.

    I dunno, I have a second NF which I took the air restrictor out with hot water, and it was incredibly clean. The really big peace of plastic in there, in my opinion, obstructs airflow, and drilling right through the middle of it leaves the rest of it still there. I just used some epoxy to seal it back up, and it is a flawless removal of the AR.

    If i ever do it again, I will boil it.

    I use the good old flat head screw driver and hammering the 3 prongs holding the restrictor inside (from the back end of the barrel, not the front).

    I just did the AR removal on one of my NFs. I used a screw driver to snap the dart peg out then stuck a 10mm drill bit down the barrel.

    I suggest only doing this when the gun is disassembled to prevent damage to the plunger.

    I just carve them out with a pocket knife, taking the blaster apart first.

    Yeah, I just go in there with either my dremel, or a pair of scissors (quite sharp) to cut the 3 prongs holding the AR in place (plunger side, not barrel), It drops right out....... easy.

    Thanks,

    I run a lighter around the 'rim' of the plunger tube and pop it open, let the restrictor fall out and then just drill it through. Then I use some CA hobby glue to put it back together
