Okay, so I finished this a while ago, but was planning to have more pics of it's capabilites before posting. But coming back from spring break, I read the thread "Thoughts on the LS", and was a little disturbed at how close people were to this design.

Alright, no more blabber. After the relative success of my original modular, of which I only ever designed one attachment, I wanted something more effective. About that time, a friend of mine got a recon, and the idea came to me. I bought a recon, some plexiglass, and all the supplies I needed were assembled.
The design begins simply with the LS. Cut off the bipod and everything up to the flat area on the bottom of the LS.

When this is done, pick up your plexiglass. you'll need a far amount of precision for this, so a dremel or plexiglass breaking tool is required. I used the thinnest plexi I got, it fits perfectly. Cut the first piece 5 3/4 inches long, and 2 inches wide. the second piece should be the same size. The third should be 5 3/4 inches by 1/2 inch. If, like me, you're impatient, you'll break the 1/2 inch piece, but that still works. Take one of the larger pieces and the skinny one, and find the long axis of both of them. Essentially, you'll be putting the skinny piece along the center of the wider one. Glue them together, making sure they are as close as possible to centered. Let the glue dry, then repeat the process with the second wide piece. When it gets done, you should have the two wide pieces held parallel to each other, sandwiching the skinny piece.
I used this design of plate to attach the Titan barrel to LS in my Prometheus design, so if you want more reference, go read it.
The two wide plates should sandwich the shell of the LS. Odds are you'll want to cut at least some of the plexiglass out to ensure clean movement of the dart tooth. When it's done, you have a very simple and effective plate to mount anything to a LS. But I designed this to be a modular rail for the LS, so onward we go. Form here on, it's quite simple. Dremel the top and bottom rails off the Recon barrel, cut them to length, and glue to the plexiglass plate. I used two rails side by side because I like mounting the stability of it, but a single row would work. Also this lets me put a larger weapon on the LS.
To finish up, take the clips out of the Recon's tactical attachments, an mount them to your favorite small gun. i was lucky enough to acquire several clips from a few recons, and with them I;'ve got a DTG and LS front gun finished, and an RF 20 almost done.
Anyway, I'll add more pictures to this when I get a camera, but these should do for now.

Yes, this mod is almost completley inversed of TailsChaser's modular, and I do like his. He and I have compared designs, both in IM, and in person comparing systems. We have agreed that his runs for stock guns, and I like it because that is true, while mine is more geared toward the mimimized versions of larger guns.

Pretty, good. Definitely the best LS modular version yet.

I would only be concerned about the strength of joint between the n-strike rails, but if you added 2-4 it probably would suffice.

Would you mind going into more detail as to how the trigger works?

Again, very nice. I really need to start on Finesse V2.

I like the idea, but it seems rather costly. Recons go for about $20 at the Waterford, CT Walmart and the longshot is up to $30 so thats about a $70 purchase. You think it might work if we were to buy a few Mavericks ($8) and pull the rails of of those?

Connecticut has that much sales tax!? In Texas the sales tax is about 8.25% so it would be about $55 to get a recon and LS at Wally World.

Why not buy some picatinny rails and use them instead? That's if they are cheaper or you want to save the front of your recon. Looks good though and I like the idea.

puky - The nearly-useless Recon front barrel has two rails on it, one on the top and one on the bottom. So you would only need to buy one recon. Hence, cost is only $50, with the bonus that you get a Recon as well as the modular longshot. (Plus you would get the red light/dot that you could mod as some here have done, to add to one of these rails.) And you don't ruin either gun in the process - as you would most likely do by ripping the rails off of a maverick.

He only used one recon front barrel to get both rails. With the two rails, things can be in a more fixed position as they have another pair of clips to keep the bottom gun from wabbling (which is good for heavier guns) and if glued right, it can support the weight of the heavier guns.

Either way, having a super NF on my mod is still the best for my outfit. I look forward to seeing the RF20 and my project....

For note, CT sales tax is 6%, even though I knew you were being sarcastic.

Anyways, nice idea, I knew somebody would do this sooner or later.

When speaking about a swallow, always make sure you know whether it is an African or European swallow. It is very important.

Personaly I'v been working on getting the time and motivation to take the rails off of some old trashed Nfs I have laying around my house and sticking them onto some ls's and pulling the scopes apart and sticking the other half of the system onto other things, but I'm too busy rite now working on a semi-secret project.
