Thanks so much. Your idea worked great!!!

thanks! (ill rate you best answer if this works) - i know what type of scissors you used but i dont have them do you know if i could use a saw to ware down the barrel
As I mentioned, you could try a nut cracker, but maybe some sort of cement/brick block with an edge may work by rubbing the barrel on it (I haven't tried that, though).

i hear pipecutters are the best way to do it.

how would you use them to open up the nitefinder barrel
well i've never owned any or used them but i would assume just cut around where the glue is..

nail polish remover works on some glues....

You could try boiling water -- the glue _might_ melt before the plastic. Or might not. And the gun's other parts might or might not survive that treatment. But I've seen it used, many years ago, to soften polystyrene cement so model kits that were glued incorrectly could be taken apart and fixed...

i dont want to risk it i just got my nightfinder 2 days ago and besides, what would my parents think if i asked them to boil my nerf gun
