I saw Captain Slug's fore grip mod kit but I wanted to maintain its "stock" appearance. Then I saw this front gun integration mod, and it hit me: why not use the front gun grip to load the main gun? Then I got busy all year and finally finished it recently.
The downside is there's no way to keep the front gun in there, I lost the front gun forever.....until I bought one on ebay for $4 bucks. Now I can still attach the front gun just to show off.
Here's the what I did to LS. Click to see larger pic.
I recorded a short video to show how it works.
See video on Youtube
So I've got a mixed LS which looks like front gun integration but actually work like a shotgun.
I spent this weekend painting my LS, I took some pics this time maybe I'll put together a write-up if I have time.
I'm a trekkie so I got all those "starfleet colors" spray paints. Here it is after the paint job.
Another shot with different lighting.
Since I gut out the front gun and there's no hope putting it back, I put in white LED to act as tactical light (just for the looks). I hid the switch and battery in the compartment just in front of the clip, easy to access and hard to get noticed. There is a circle shape under the front gun barrel, I'll probably put a laser pointer in it, for extra coolness.
Also in this angle you can see I cut off half of the bolt, since it's no longer a vital part of the gun, but I left right hand side bolt intact just in case and for the look.
It's got AR removal but can only use stock streamline darts.
I've uploaded some pictures with close-up internal shot, to help anyone that wants to attempt this mod. You can click pic for full resolution.
You can see this picture, pretty much explained itself. For the white rod I used Tamiya modeling supply.
I added some metal slip in the front or the sled extension to support the thin venting holes and to guide the white rod so it will not stuck.
And I used Tamiya masking tape for modeling and 3M masking tape for automotive paint.
NEVER spray one thick layer, spray many times instead. As long as you do multiple sprays you won't get any leakage.
Thank you for watching. And I really liked the warm welcome you guys gave me.
