Not too long ago I was contacted by a fellow modder and member of our Haven about a very disturbing dilemma that had befallen him. A trusted and beloved companion of his had recently fallen in battle, with no hope of re-iterating it's final shot. That's right, his faithful blaster had failed him, broken, beyond repair.
Not one to let such a tragedy, no, such a travesty go unanswered, I felt obliged to heed his request for my aid.
With no un-due haste, I began this undertaking, this resurrection if you will, of his battle-hardened side-arm bearing the designation of "Recon CS-6".

I was given a picture, and I got myself a canvas to work upon.
And she has risen from the ashes of her former self, to do battle once again.
These are the results.

That is one sexy Recon. It does look battle worn. You are the man. What are the internal mods?

Not a lot you can do with a recon if you don't single it, or at least replace the bolt. I assume the bolt has been replaced because it obviously still takes clips.

To answer everybody's questions, the internal mods done (by request) were AR/peg removal, and the omission of the bolt-lock. I added three O-rings to the outside of the plunger tube, as well, because the Recon's spring doesn't get fully compressed when primed. The clips were modded to accept stefans. Other than that, just paint.

This is because it used at low-caliber wars. Anything REALLY special would be over kill.

Excuse my nitpickiness, but you do know that caliber refers to bullet diameter, right?

Colloquially, the term "high caliber" is used to refer to people of great competence or ability.

In horology, the term is used to distinguish the size and type of movement used within a timepiece

In typography, the caliber of a font designates the size of the eye of a character, neglecting any risers or descenders

Yeah, I guess it could be used that way, my bad. Just because this is a nerf forum and we deal with "bullet" diameter almost constantly, I thought you may have used the word wrong.

Edit: That wasn't sarcastic by the way, it can be nigh impossible to tell over teh internetz.

I'm curious as to how much time you spent on doing it (it was definitely worthwhile). Very well done, as said before, the scaring is amazing. What kind of paint did you use?

Somewhere in the ballpark of 4-8 hours, a little here, a little there for a Recon, not including dry time. A lot of the time I put into a Recon is actually in the sanding.
And for most all the advice I can give on painting, including what paints to use is in the second link in my sig.
If you've got anymore questions about paints though, feel free to PM me.

The paint job is definatally bad ass. Don't know if I would use it for an outdoor war though, the police may take an interest if you know what I mean.

Honestly, the paint job on this is mediocre at best. You really need to spend more time working on making the metal parts where the paint is "worn off" look more natural. As it is, it looks like metallic paint was just splotched onto those areas.

The actual dents and such look good, though.

Well...I'm sorry that you feel that way, but it's new owner likes it, and that's all that really counts. And I've said it before, and just to re-iterate this point, I'm not Direct Threat. I don't paint that way. I do clean paint-jobs, "worn" or "damaged" are new to me. I'm still learning, and have never claimed to have perfected these techniques. If you have any advice that you think may help, then by all means let me know, I'm stabbing blindly at this whole dry-brushing thing. I've never been given any hints, and am constantly practicing when I do have the time. And on that note, as far as time goes, all I can say is that painting guns doesn't pay any bills. While not as cheep as a stock gun, I don't really charge much of anything for these guns I sell. Most of a buyer's cost is just my material, translated from me to them.
Anyways, thanks for your comment, I'll have to rethink my approach a bit.

I got the gun today! I love the paint.
Would you be a bit offended if I opened it up? It shoots a bit like a stock recon. Paint was main reason for buying it.

Hey man, it's your gun you can do whatever you'd like with it. I won't be offended at all.
