I haven't seen this anywhere else on NerfHaven, probably because it does nothing to the efficiency of the gun. It does, however, make the gun look a lot cooler in my opinion.

Basically it's the Longshot barrel extension (I did the frontgun integration, and therefore didn't have any use for the extra barrel) put in the Recon's extension shell. As I said it does nothing for efficiency, it actually makes the gun fire shorter than it usually does. But the close-in fighting my friends and I do makes range unecessary. And it sorta looks like an M4; at least I think so. I have made a shorter extension since I took these pictures so I'll be posting more pictures shortly.

Oh , the fore grip is a longshot scope's rail attachment, with a peice of 3/4" PVC pipe epoxied to it.

EDIT: More pictures. The short one is the "commando" variant. Basically just a cut down version.

And the insides (of the smaller one, one of the screws is damaged on the bigger one, so I couldn't get it open).

It seems pretty self-explanatory. I would do a complete write-up, but I don't have anymore extensions.

Looks cool, but you should add a flashlight on the foregrip, and give it a nice PJ.

This is really cool and simple. I just finished doing it to my recon. Looks nice and as for the range loss...well its a recon so I wasn't expecting much in the first place.

Along with a cool paintjob, you could also do the superclip mod. It'll give you a more practical longer clip and make the gun look more like an M4 at the same time...I think the recon looks more like an HK G3 though...

I really like the "Commando" one. I've got so many of those Recon barrels laying around I might have to make one. I kinnd reminds me of my extended ond I made for my Extra Longshot.

Do you still have to triggerpart from the LS frost gun cuzbecauseu could take out the trigger mechanism and just super glue that onto the barrel extension and the the handle ill be more comfortable. Thats what i did.

So you mean he mangled one of two barrel extensions, took out the core somehow, and glued it to the other one?

That would be the LS front gun Barrel to be precise, I did it to my ODST Recon, and I think it does look like the G3. Now all you need to do is make it Automatic :P

Wow. I just did this a month ago. M411A1 SOPMOD, right? I'm working on stuff for that, too. Nice barrel idea, I'll try that out on my new recon.

An M411A1? I have no idea what that is. But yes I do think it looks like a M4A1 SOPMOD, or a G3.

I quite like the grip attachment. Seems like it'll finally give me something useful to do with that POS iron sight.

Sweet.

Gives me an idea... How about making the foregrip linked to the horribly placed cocking mechanism (kinda like how slug's LS shotgunesque foregrip links to the orange cocking bar on the LongShot), so one can cock the gun by pulling the foregrip?

Recons suck anyways, but I think a functional foregrip would be pretty cool.

Whoops, was thinking of glock .45s at the time.
Yep, I meant to say M4A1.

you could totally make the bad company M416/HK16, just cut down the longshot barrel, add the flip up sight on the fronnt piece, make a curved clip (try legos) and add back sights.
