Introduction: Nerf Gun-Nitefinder Mod
I'v been keen uploading my first instructable, so I decided to go ahead and do something every kid likes, the Nerf gun. In this tutorial, I'll be showing you guys how to simply make the gun more powerful and I'll also be showing you how to get rid of the laser in this particular gun.
Step 1: Dismantle the Gun
Just take the covering off and remove the cylinder with the spring inside it, from there just take the spring out the cylinder qs shown in the pictures.
Step 2: Playing About With the O-ring
For all the first timers reading this, the o-ring is thqt little black ring you can see near the spring.
In picture 1 you can see that I've removed the o-ring. You need to do this. Once you have done that you need to wrap a thin piece of tape around where the o-ring was. This makes the o-ring larger and gives the cylinder a tight seal.
Step 3: Stretching the Spring
From here you need to take the whole spring off. You can do this by unscrewing the little screw on the end and then it will be able to come off.
Once you have the spring in your hand, stretch it for a while until you can see it has grown in length. Then put it back from where you got it and put it back into the cylinder.
Place the cylinder back into the gun.
Step 4: Dismantling Tye Light (optional)
This step is pretty easy. The light only has a few screws holding it in place.
Undo these and cut the wires at the end towards the light.
Once the light is off, you neef to unscrew the grey thing it's connected to. We will be using this to cover up the hole.
Step 5: You Remember That Grey Thing?
I need you to take this grey thing apart. As you can see in the second picture, you'll end up with three pieces.
Throw away the piece in the middle of picture 2.
Then put the two other pieces together.
Once you gave done all of that, you must super glue it too it's original place.
Step 6: Assemble Once Again
We've come to the end. Before you close it up, I suggest looking at other tutorials and get some more ideas to do to your gun.
Enjoy shooting your nerf gun.

Stretching the spring is actually very bad for the gun, either replace the spring or add a spacer.
