what are the material?

Attmos (author)2012-01-26

I just recently built something similar to this. My Nightfinder broke after a failed mod, so I took the plunger tube (I think it's called, just that orange tube with the spring in it) from the Nightfinder with the full plunger assembly, and sawed off everything other than the handle past the front of the huge circle with the Nerf logo on it. The plunger assembly goes into it, and there is a small rectangle there, just glue the plunger tube to the end of the Nightfinder, pull the cocking mechanism, it should lock, then press that button. Watch your fingers, I learned that the hard way. I can fit 3-4 darts in, but it doesn't go as far as 2 darts.

Make an "ible for this launcher please! I've been looking for an underbarrel launcher "ible".

look up Meanbean's Nerf grenade launcher and make one. To put onto the barrel, you should get some PVC pipe and cut it to just the right size, then, take that scope you get with the recon, and take out the innards. You should get the rail piece. Hot glue the PVC pipe to that.

One day nerf is gonna start making the next M4 for our military. And it going to look FREAKIN AWSOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

V1nz0rd (author)Giggidygoo4u2010-09-15

but, the M4 will be bright yellow and the enemies will alwas be able to see our troops. and they'll shoot darts instead of bullets. LOL!

kve23 (author)V1nz0rd2011-03-07

poison darts >=)

Royse9808 (author)2011-02-12

that's awsome but how does it shot?

aseaheru (author)2009-09-14

1, HOW DID YOU MOD THAT LONGSHOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 2, how do you make this 3, co2/ better spring? am gessing uses spring

maxxxem (author)aseaheru2009-09-14

Actually I'm thinking about making a GL for my + bow using Titan internals.

Modding my LS? I still have it. What would you like to know?

Ar removal, AR15 spring addition, fixed stock (half way) and paint.
Also I tried to Internally silence it. drilled holes in the barrel and surrounded with cotton.

The mag is just two LS magazines e-taped.
That holo site is a LS scope clip that hooks onto the rail, a small Bike tire pair kit box and a cut piece of a dental floss container. Dosen't realy function.
Acitualy Reciently I have painted blue tiger stripes on the LS

sweet. merf now makes clips that you can attach 2 mags to.

maxxxem (author)aseaheru2009-11-23

Yea i have one, the mags just fall when your running..=(

aseaheru (author)maxxxem2009-12-07

glue between clips and clip clip

V1nz0rd (author)aseaheru2010-07-22

pretty sure you should just duct tape the clips together.

aseaheru (author)V1nz0rd2010-08-18

makes sence, but take falls apart and plastic cement holds together

V1nz0rd (author)aseaheru2010-09-15

maybe, but even if it does, you can just re- tape tape it. I keep a spare roll of duct tape in my bag for emergencies.

aseaheru (author)V1nz0rd2010-09-21

ok, i can see that

aseaheru (author)maxxxem2010-01-25


aseaheru (author)maxxxem2009-09-15

EVERY THING! fore my #1 ...??????

Trizixx (author)2009-09-16

this is really good, i'm suprized that people have'nt thought of this before.

meanbean (author)2009-08-26

5 to 10 feet? really, you could throw those balls farther than that. Get it to at least 20 feet using spring mods, and a new o ring, then cram like 5 in there. now THAt would work.

1129ag (author)2009-08-24

how did you make that

Colonel88 (author)2009-08-20

ehh it doesn't look like it has "mad" range, consider modding a Atom blaster into it instead of a nitefinder since atom is MEANT for shooting those little balls

maxxxem (author)Colonel882009-08-21


beastie21 (author)2009-08-09

how do u make it???

Nerf S.A.S. (author)2009-07-25

put up an instructable for this

Geoff 117 (author)2009-07-10

Can you make an instructable showing how to make a longshot like yours?

maxxxem (author)Geoff 1172009-07-12


emuostrich (author)2009-04-22

Looks aren't all. And judging from the 1(one) picture you most generously gave us, I don't see much point in making it. If you can get an astounding 5-10 feet out of it, just go take a nickel and by yourself a Reactor. And if you care about putting the hurt on, just buy a BBBB (Buzz Bee Big Blast), do a barrel replacement, and make some stefans. Oh, and if you're going to make a double clip, couldn't you just take the time and effort to make one that doesn't require you to take it out and flip it? CS's 12-dart LS clip: this is to everyone (not just you...) If you have the time to glue two LongShot clips together, you have the time to join my site at, and especially if you used epoxy. Remember, join now or you won't get the valuable incentive. And by "now" I mean NOW.

toogers (author)2009-03-29

hmmmm..... nice but it looks kinda flimsy, like i'ts gonna explode from the pressure of the spring.

maxxxem (author)toogers2009-04-02

Giggidygoo4u (author)maxxxem2009-03-07

Quick q maxxxem. Nice piece of work, like the Mona Lisa but can u send me a list of whats exactly needed to make it. U do, and I'll grant u 3 wishes.

maxxxem (author)Giggidygoo4u2009-03-08

its still in the prototype stage
i have been field testing it and trying to get better ranges
and the rail clamp broke off =(
but i found another way to mount it

Giggidygoo4u (author)maxxxem2009-03-12

alright, when you patent it i'll be the first one to buy

kerneykid1 (author)2009-02-04
