So, I recently acquired a Strongarm. The first thing I noticed is that it didnt quite fit on my arm. So, I decided to make it a pistol.
Posted Image

First, open it up. Take out all the useless crap like the handle and the button thing that keeps the barrels flipped back.
Posted Image

I was very impressed by the spring, so I didnt replace it, and the seal was spectacular. Just lube the plunger head and you should be fine. Here is a reference pic for the spring (NF spring on the left), it's quite difficult to compress also.
Posted Image

Anyway, on to the barrels. Sand down the little nub that holds the black thing on.
Posted Image

Then, cut the barrels down like so
Posted Image

And replace them with about two and a half inches of PVC, not the 4" shown.
Posted Image

Now, take that black piece and cut down the line marked....
Posted Image

So it fits on the PVC, keeping them steady.
Posted Image

Average range is about 40' flat, but it is not unusual to get in the low 50's.

For this next part, you will need:
-Some sort of wire, size matters... thicker is better.
-1/4" Vinyl Tubing
-Pistol Grip of choice
-Glue

Now, this part will be tricky and vary depending on the wire, tubing, and pistol grip you use. First, wrap some of the wire around the handle.
Posted Image

And nest it in the vinyl tubing like so....
Posted Image

Until it comes to the bottom, gluing the tubing every 2 inches.
Posted Image

Take the pistol grip of your choice, I used the reactor, and glue it to the bottom.
Posted Image

Then, just take a key ring and make the trigger. Done!
Posted Image

The finished product:

How large is it? It looks pretty big. How big is it, like about the size of a Big Salvo? I've never seen a strongarm before, and to be honest, I hate them. But a good mod, nevertheless. I believe this is the first one, no? I did'nt see any in the directory.

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.

It's actually closer in size to a Mav, I thought it was larger until I actually got it.

Nicely done Nerfer****(75). You have finally made the strongarm useful. I am impressed by the ranges for something as crap-tastic as a strongarm.
Nice!
Defiantly single it. 80' is very good indeed.

Well, I singled it, but was very disapointed to see the same ranges. Also, the wire I used was too weak and snapped. So, I am currently looking for a new material.

Wow! Looks like a solid sidearm! How close is it to a Mav's range (size to distance ratio, I guess).

My singled, minimized Mav gets about 10' more than the Strongarm. But this gets about the same as the average Mav.

I don't get my kicks out of you,
I don't feel the way I used to do.
I know its bad,
After what we had,
But Iím just not the angel you knew.
