Thanks to angelof_DEATH182 for the idea.

angelof_DEATH182 had the great idea of integrating my minimized Tommy 20 as the undergun of a Longshot. I quickly bought a longshot and worked all morning to accomplish this task. The result is awesome. (The LS is stock, except for shell modifications to make the integration work.)

I got rid of the tripod and flattened the front.

Please ask questions, comment, I love getting feedback.

Nice. But a LS at stock ranges is kind of pointless with the 20. The T20 shoots more darts and further. Great though.

What sort of range does the T20 get?

If it's high enough, this might actually be an effective weapon. I'm impressed.

IIRC he said it gets 40-50ft, which is roughly the range my LS gets.

Also, great job. :lol:

20ish stock, 40ish modified. But it's extremely picky about which darts you use, it's really noisy, and it's not reliable.
I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Out of the many wars I have attended in the past year I have NEVER been hit by a Tommy 20.

It looks like it could be useful - use the LS for the ability to shoot without having to turn the motor on and alert them to your presence - then flip the switch and unleash 20 darts as quick as you please.

However, the blue/yellow color combination makes me sick. It could really benefit from a good paint job!

I think it could benefit with a fuller intergration. It looks like it's held on with hot glue..

That is one of the fugliest integrations I have ever seen, although you did only spend a few hours on it. I would definetly minimize it as much as you can. I have no idea what the internals look like, but does it have a plunger tube or anything of that nature? I would try to integrate it AS MUCH into the LS as you can, but leave the drum completely out of the LS, it would look cool. But really, give it a paintjob. I almost threw up waffle chunks when I saw that. The only thing that is cool, or that I like about the Tomy 20, is the drum. There is something cool about the drum, especially if you painted it black.

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.

Theres 2 motors towards the front that spin forwards, like one of those hot wheels speeder uppers. When you pull the trigger, the drum rotates, a stick thing pops out to push the dart froward, the dart catches on the wheel and the dart flies forwards.

I wonder if you could get away with cutting out the existing trigger and bulding a new one. Then slide the T20 back further, so the trigger placement is close in appearance to the set-up of an M16/M203. Here is a pic of what I am talking about:

Cutting off that ugly bit of handle that is still on the T20 would go a long way to making the thing more appealing.

As is it is ugly as hell. But props on something I haven't seen yet. Although I'd rather see a titan underneath that doesn't have so many tubes it looks like it is on life support.

Oh, okay, I get what you are talking about. I see now why it is so hard to modify a battery powered gun, except for just supercharging it. I bet you could acually mod one by getting one of the hot wheels spinner-things and replaceing the stock one with that. From what I remember about hot wheels cars that I had when I was like 9, those spinners went made that hot wheel car fly. I remember making this one track that was both gravity, and battery powered, and the car hit the wall, and dented it. But anyway, those hot wheel ones go a lot faster that the one in the T20, probably.

Can you still open up the longshot to mod it? It doesn't look like it, unless you tore off the T20. No offense, but I hate this integration. It looks very bulky, and big. Not to mention the T20 is loud and will give you away. It doesn't seem pratical at the wars I go to, but whatever style works for you, I guess.

Just... Just no. Get a better gun man! However if play indoors, this may be a viable weapon... Doubt it.

The whole point of my integration was to provide a back up, while being quickly discarged when used up. When that thins empty (or even when its loaded) its just dead weight. Hm... Im getting ideas... be prepared.

I don't think anyone here who is dissing the T20 actually owns one. BTW, you can still open up the LS, it's just sort of annoying.

I've never owned a T20 but what I hear of it is that it's not good. Also, I've seen it which is why I say it's bulky and big. By opening up the longshot I meant taking the two halves off, rather than having it half open.

Yes, that's what I meant too. The two sides of both the T20 and the LS are separately glued together, so they can be removed together.

Maeric: Which mod of yours are you referencing here?

Eddieoctane: It is impossible to do what you suggest because I wouldn't be able to remove the clip of the gun if I put the handle any closer.

Now you're making me feel bad...

Like most things I do, I did this for fun. Plus, for the way I nerf, this works fine. I don't want to "sharpshoot" someone from far away or anything.

Heh, Im in a good mood. Actually, for my play style, it could work. Rushing is fun but still, its better done with two RF20s just for laughs. This this does look awkward. Who am I kidding? I plan to attach a magstrike to my new Longshot. I can't talk about awkward.

Noncomforming as can be (pay no attention to the video, it is teh suxor).

Anyways, pretty neat. I personally don't like battery powered guns, but nice nonetheless.

What really makes this ugly other than the color scheme? I mean, Guru also has tons of hot glue which shows how the two guns are connected.

I personally like the idea for ambushes.
A few suggestions though.
Posted Image

Does the Tommy 20's trigger manually push a dart into the fly wheels or does it connect a circuit which something electronically pushes the dart in. If the case is the latter you could rig up a special push button that fires the T20 and this would allow you to minimize the T20 even further making it more aesthetically pleasing. Hell if you wanted to, you might be able to rig it up to the original trigger. Than only fire the Tommy 20 when its on. This modification has a lot of potential to be alot better. I hope you take this farther.


As far as everyone talking about how pointless this is. I can see this being very useful in HvZ.

The trigger moves a rod that pushes the dart into the flywheels. I also think this has potential. I am all for integrating guns that people hate. I have a mav under my ls. It just needs for time/effort. and some Bondo! Allllllright.
