Two Vulcan Ammo Boxes.
One Longshot Breech door/cover.
A Dremel (with cutting wheel and sanding bit) or Hacksaw and Sandpaper.
Fast Set Fletching Glue or Fishin' Glue.
That's it! This one is pretty easy to make, and if someone already did this, sorry, I've not seen it.
**!!Please note that the tripod will not fit with this extra long box attached. But I'm going to try to figure that out next.!!**
The first thing you're going to want to do is cut the bottom and part of the side out of your top box.
On the bottom, I cut right up to the last screw post, stopping just before it, wanting to keep as much stability as possible. The same goes for the side, but this time, stop about a 1/4", 5mm from the screw post that begins the vertical wall. While this will most likely be trimmed off in the end, but, better safe than sorry. Once you've finished your cut and cleaned up all the burrs set this box back onto the Vulcan. Take you second box, pull the lid off and slide it over the first box on the Vulcan. See those two little areas on the second box touching the Vulcan and keeping the boxes from being flush?
Take your sanding bit and grind that shit down, till it looks like this. The back of the box requires the most sanding, but the front need only a very small amount. Just give it a slight bevel. Like so...
Once you have a clean tight fit, take some tape and tape the outsides of the two boxes together and remove from Vulcan. Now take the Longshot part, this one, and cut just past the last of those four little wall things (near the top in this pic). You are going to want it a just a little smaller that the opening it's going in to.
Now place it in the space between the two boxes from the inside so that it catches, and can't be pushed out. Like so....
This is why you've got to use tape before it's glued together. Keep trimming the top box until the Longshot piece fits in the dead space.
Now to cover those two gaping holes left on the front and back. Using the piece of the first box that was cut from the bottom, make two opposite little triangular pieces to fill in the dead space. I used the prat that star the upward slant.
Now turn your nearly completed 50 round box around and look a the side that attaches to the Vulcan. See that open area where the two join? Looks a bit like it'll catch the chain, huh? To fix this I took the rounded end of the second boxes lid and cut it off flush with the ends of the attachment points, basically just cut it straight across.
Flip it upside down to glue it in. I put it in last, after it was all glued together.
And now you're done!! All that's left is to sand off one of the N-Strike logos (or both if you want) and slap some paint on that bitch!!
**Edit** Forgot to mention that you sould cut off the second boxes conection point. Where it snaps into the Vulcan. You don't need it there anymore.
Here's a few more pictures.
As always happy modding,
