Do you hate your Maverick for it's bad ranges?
Did you try to mod it and you screwed up the turret and/or rotation mech?
Do you have nothing to do on a Saturday and you want a paintjob guinea pig?

If you said "yes" to any or all of the above, this mod is right for you!

Anyway, a long while ago my friend trusted me to mod his Mav. That was a bad decision. I did the straw mod (with hot glue :D ) and we found that I masterfully increased the range by negative 15 feet, not to mention the turret had to be manually operated. So he just gave me the Mav. Just today I was feeling bored (as I haven't been allowed to open Star Wars: Empire at War yet) so I decided to single it like I've been planning to for months.

First I cut off all that pesky stuff at the front, including the quarter-spherical things on the sides. Then I recycled a barrel from the original turret and drilled out the thick part in the back with a 1/2 inch bit. I used Longshot box cardboard to cover the holes, and finished it off with a classic Spectre666 weathering paintjob.

Here it is, the SA-02 Pitbull Handgun.

EDIT: Gets about 35 feet consitently with taggers, but for some reason normal CDTS's fishtail after about 15 feet.

Questions? Comments? Suggestions?

Interesting. I would recommend slightly stretching the spring and added a nut to the back of the gun to increase compression. I would also recommend removing the slider, and attaching a fastener as a pullback.

Edit: Almost forgot to mention. Good mod. That is a wicked clean singled Maverick REV-6. A blessing on your crops.

My bro comments that you should've extended the new boxy section further to cover more of the barrel. But good job! Did you do anything special with the air nozzel? Or did you just slap a barrel onto the pre-existing wall?

You just turned 13? Damn. There are quite a few older members on NH that could learn from your habits/posts.

Nice job on the mod man.

As a suggestion, if you happened to have taken the hot glue and straw out of the maverick plunger, you might be able to get more range by integrating the barrel into the plunger, leaving less dead space. However, if the straw and hot glue is still in there, then nice job with the mod, considering the materials you have/had.

I can't stop thinking about how much this mod looks like a a German WWII Luger. Just that it would need a slightly longer barrel in my opinion.

I like it, it's a nice way to keep a broken mav working.

That's a Walther P38, not a Luger.



Good mod, unique style and approach. You should try adding a new barrel (as in brass, CPVC, or PETG) to get a bit more range.

Do the penny mod and it should increase your ranges by at LEAST 5 feet. I love the paint job though.

Thanks to all, it was pretty fun to do and I'm glad the paintjob turned out so well. A tip on the weathering/grime, if you're sanding off the top layer for a damage look, mostly go for the raised edges. That really gives it some depth.

Green-Buckshot: I did add three pennies at the back, but I didn't stretch the spring because it eventually just goes back over time and in the Mav it can break the cocking pin.

Galaxy613: Yeah I'm thinking I should have extended the cardboard too, but there are a few reasons why I cant do that now. If by "special" you mean some whittling so it would fit inside the barrel, then yes. But otherwise, I juststuck it over and hotglued/E-taped it on.

Ompa: Thanks, that's good to hear. Actually I didn't put the straw in the plunger, just the AR areas. I knew that was the problem though do I just sawed the barrels off of the turret to be used later if I dont have any (which I don't)

Aetherguy881: Yeah, I was going for that kind of real look, just the Walher P38 wasnt exactly in my mind. I was mostly thinking about the Walther PPK, but I was kind of combining other guns ino the look.

SHA: Thanks, I would but I don't have anything else :blush: . Plus, I glued it in there pretty tight and there's cardboard on top that I'd have to replace/repaint...

Kidflash: Yes I did do the peny mod and I can feel the difference. Thanks on the paintjob, Spectre666 is really the one who showed me the idea though.
