The Longshot scopeÖwow. Big, unstable, and completely anti-aim, itís probably the worst Nerf accessory Hasbro has ever made. Iíve read of people putting in Nitefinder internals, and I consider that a good idea. I tried one-upping those removable integrations with the tiny terror that is the LS2k, the best rail accessory in the history of Nerf. Letís see what you think.

Materials
LS scope
At2k internals
Hot glue and a strong epoxy of some kind

Tools
PVC pipe cutters
Screwdriver
Hot glue gun
Dremel

Open the scope in any way you want. After taking out the screws, you still must contend with the yellow rings. I just completely cut them off with some pipe cutters. A hacksaw or Dremel would suffice. However you do it, it should look like this.

Dremel out the little tabs on both sides

Now screw the sides back together. You should cut a two notches on either side for the 2k turret. You need to glue the 2k valve into the turret, otherwise triggering it will pull the valve out. Apply hot glue and Plumber's Goop liberally to one side of the scope and to the turret and attach the two.

The hot glue should hold it until the Goop sets up. I find it to be perfectly stable glued to only one side, I can rotate it violently and it doesn't give one bit. If you want, you can add a little hot glue to the other side.

You can add a keyring and a pump. I just used the stock 2k pump. As for attaching the pump to the side, put it wherever you feel like, I just glued it to the side.

Itís done!

I realized after reassembly that I left out the rail clip (oops), but it does give me another opportunity to show the innards.

Really clever idea. Did you mod the turret though? Where is the pump?

there IS a working 2k valve inside the scope. Basically, all I did was make a modular 2k unit for N-strike rails.

Where is the pump?

I plan on adding a pump soon,

What do you guys think?

I think this has already been done before (because I did it already, but my 2k leaks so it's impractical for me), yet not in this fashion, (I think they keep the whole scope intact and I think they single the 2k, and trash the turret. Anyways, I found the write-up clear and easy to understand, and plus, you kept it simple!

The integration possibilities of that thing are very promising.

Nice job!

I'm actually really excited about these. These may be small but I think they will be very useful when I use my ninja skills.

Lt. Stefan- There's not currently a trigger, but it'll be a keyring once I get it in there.

Watari- I'm quite sorry, I didn't realize someone had put a 2k in a LS scope.

Another cool thing about this design is that it is very clean and compact for a permanent 2k integration with the turret. If I can get over to Kohls soon and get my hands on another LS scope (Does anyone know if Hasbro sells them?), one of these is ON my crossbow.

Thanks for all the compliments!

It has been done before, but not like this. I believe you are the first to keep the turret.

Nice job. Very clean and practical.

Probably dead by now, or something.

Thanks Assassin, now that you say it I do seem to remember a topic a while back...I've added a pump and keyring, and will upload some pictures when I figure out what's wrong with my camera.

I would like to add this to the directory but it is not a complete modification.

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.

I'm sorry about that, I combined yours and zack attack's questions. There is no pump pictured, but I added one today. Also (in response to your original question) the turret is not modified, I had no modified turrets lying around, and anyways, it's all what works best for you. My camera upload cable is broken, but as soon as possible I will have internal pics and finished pictures up.
