Last weekend I painted my Scout. Since it's the best "millitary-look" pistol it'll be the perfect sidearm to go with my starfleet-theme Longshot.

I drilled out the venting holes on the slide. Then I added a iron weight in the handle to make it a bit more hefty, maybe more "real".

Since I'm opening it up for painting, I took out the AR so it get another 5' with stock dart.

A little black stain near the muzzle, I hope it'll show through the venting holes.

Now I can get in my full tactical gears with them. Or I'll be the Starfleet special ops with weapons designed for harsh environment (where you can't use phasers).

You should probably try to find a better secondary than the scout. It sucks. Everyone agrees on this, unless you find a way to integrate a at2k in it or something. Also, you already have one. The internals of the longshot sidearm that you integrated are identical to the scout.

I just chose Scout for its looks.

Also my Longshot didn't have front gun integration, the front gun grip is there to prime the main gun. With a pump action LS I don't really need a sidearm, I'd rather carry a few more clips. But looking cool is equally important, so... :P

For my LS mod see this thread: http://nerfhaven.com...showtopic=11308

I like the color, good work. I really like the black part around the end of it.

Sickest paint jobs I've seen in a long, long time. Keep up the good work.

Kevinceron, I agree with you on the scout, I just like it for the sleekness and its looks. But man, that LS, in my opinion, is the best painjob I have EVER seen. Keep in mind, I have only known about and have been lurking and posting on the site for about 4 or 5 months. You should start painting other people's guns for them, to make an extra buck, like Direct Threat does. You would get some buisness with those paintjobs. Its just, the detail, and preciseness of the paintjob is amazing. I can barely put it into words...

It's not like that. I put lube on it and its the same. Its just stuck. And when I cock it back it goes farther back then usual. Also I push as hard as I can and it wont go back in. I've tried the methods and they wont work. Also pics are up.

How do you paint so well? I can't get clean edges for my life. Great job. I love you LS too.

Those are excellent paint jobs. I love both of them. It reminds me of Direct Threat's paint jobs.

The scout it really only useful for barrel-tapping people.

Thanks for your comments guys. :D

The secret to spray painting is using LOTS of masking tapes. Either 3M or Tamiya will do (available in the hobby shop or check Tamiya website). Mask out where you've already painted. And think before you apply each layer of paint, find out the correct order. Hope that helps.

Next I'll be making doubled capacity LS clip, or maybe an alien themed Maverick.

CS- Maybe if you have arms as big and long as Forsaken Angel.

I love your paintjobs. They look great. I really like how you use the different colors to make it look shadier in spots.

Did you use Kylon?

Just for the record I would like to say that the scout is much better than the LS front gun and can outshoot it by about 10 feet.

I don't get my kicks out of you,
I don't feel the way I used to do.

But Iím just not the angel you knew.

Nice job! I'm a big fan of matching paintjobs, and yours do not fail to impress!

Also, thanks for the paint recommendation. How's the durability?

I have to disagree with CaptainSlug on this one. I've found that with a few heavy weights in the correct positions, the Scout makes an excellent projectile weapon. You can throw it surprisingly far, with devastating effects.

Sadly, that's about all I've found the Scout to be useful for.

But I agree with the above posters; that LS has a slick paintjob.

:blush: Wouldn't that get you kicked out of a war..?

That depends on two things:

1.) Who is throwing the thing
2.) Who is hosting the war

Now, if the answer to both of those questions is VACC, I'd think it's safe to say that VACC would not kick himself out of his own war. Now for anyone else, it probably would get you kicked out.

Also, FA, I was under the impression that the Scout and LS front gun had almost the exact same internals. Does the Scout have a stronger stock spring? I don't have the two to compare, as they are about 16 hours driving distance apart...

Also a random question in the off chance someone who knows this gets a chance to read this; An AR-15 spring is of slightly larger diameter than that of an X-bow/DT3/BBB spring, correct? Judging by what I've read it's true, but I would like to be sure that the inner diameter of the AR-15 spring is indeed larger than that of an X-bow/DT3/BBB spring. I ask mainly because I don't happen to have an X-bow/DT3/BBB spring handy, and as such, I really have no idea how they compare relatively. Even a difference of 1-2mm would be helpful to my cause, and I don't recall ever reading (or finding) anything directly comparing the two springs to such a degree. But yeah, if anyone knows offhand, it would be greatly appreciated.

Pretty! I want a scout, just so I can clip it to my titan and have the button-activated firing. It helps that it looks cool, also. Nice paint jobs, they look amazing.

EDIT: ompa, the LS's front gun has a pathetic stock spring, worse than maverick and crossfire's springs.

:D You'd better be careful about taking those things in public. How will the police and the innocent civilians know it's fake?

They won't. And if cops aren't sure, you better react damn quick when they tell you to drop the gun, because in that situation, they can shoot first and ask questions later.

And I think it is technically illegal to paint the muzzle of any toy gun anything other than orange or red. So be careful. But damn nonetheless. That scout looks sweet. Quite the matching set.

I like the paintjobs. They're subtle, and you don't see that much on nerf blasters. Excellent work.
