First, this isn't my first MA5C mod, I've made 1 for my friend before with a paint-job, working flashlights, etc.
And like the rest of the guns I've given him, he somehow managed to break it in under a month. So this is in fact the second MA5C he's getting.
Secondly, I didn't paint this one because I have no skills with spray painting these things... I've practiced before, but I just have no skill what-so-ever~
So I'm going to give it to my friend to paint it (he's never spray painted anything before in his life, but who knows... maybe he'll have "beginner's luck").
Now lets start this thing.
Open up that sad excuse for a rip-off Halo Assault Rifle. Remove the sound speaker and that long green electrical thingy in the middle of the frame. (You'll need to cut the wires of course, so make sure you've taken out all of the batteries; including that free mini battery they include, to avoid any injuries).
Next just follow the instructions given on the following pictures.
This next few steps will involve the making of the barrel, pump, & trigger devices~
Saw a thin line (on the right frame of the gun) allowing you to stick a metal rod of some sort into the plunger and pump the pump. Look at the pics below for reference.
Here's the control switch for your flashlight.
Lastly, I personally hate doing and claiming what ranges the gun can get. Why? Because we all use different darts; we make them/buy them differently. The thing I hate most is when someone feels that they need to compensate for some small thing by claiming that their mod can get a super long distance. The previous Nerf war I've been to had some of the most powerful/professionally built Nerf guns ever, and they don't always get 100'+, and they don't need to either because in those fast paced rushes, your target is at farthest only 50' away. I'm starting to ramble on there, so w/e~ and here's a picture of the result of the first dart I fired with it.
The pressure from the blast was so great that it ripped the dart inside-out... and that's all I got~
Some nice feedbacks/comments are always well appreciated~
Any "not-so-nice" feedbacks/comments should just be PM'd or kept to yourself~
