Ok so this project has been in the works for a while now. First of all Crossbowing a Longshot IS NOT MY ORIGIONAL IDEA. It was originally done by BalisticJoe. This mod will cover how to Crossbow your longshot, how to then inline said longshot, and then how to build one of the most comfortable stocks EVER.

So let’s get this thing started:

Open up your longshot and take out everything. The only parts you will need for this portion of the mod are as follows:
Posted Image
Now take the shell and Prepare to reinforce it.
You will be reinforcing this:
Posted Image
This part of the mod is important because it increases the life of your longshot.
I used knex and hot glue to reinforce, but you can use any thing that you want.
Next you are going to close up your gun then trace an out line of ½ in. cpvc on the back and cut it out like so:
Posted Image
Now set your shell off to the side.
Take out your bolt. Remove the back screws, take out the spring. Cut the bolt and remove like so:
Posted Image
Now take some ½ in. cpvc and single your long shot with it like so:
Posted Image
The cpvc runs through the back of the piece and is hot glued in place.
Now superglue it to the back of the plunger chamber.
Posted Image
Next glue on a ½ in. cpvc coupler.
Posted Image
Now cut yet another piece if ½ in cpvc and insert half or it into your desired length of ½ PVC. (This will be for the inline clip, what ever length you choose is the length of your clip.)
Glue it all together and you should have this:
Posted Image
Next take a small length of PETG and E-tape both ends so that the one fits snugly in the PVC and the other in a ½ in. cpvc coupler.
Posted Image
Glue it all together and you will have this:
Posted Image
Congrats you just inlined your Longshot.
Now take your plunger out. Now cut a small length of ¼ in. copper tubing. Super glue it into your Plunger rod.
Posted Image
Then put ½ in. cpvc over the copper that is hanging over. Superglue it in place.
Posted Image
Next add what ever springs which you desire, strengthen the catch spring and put the gun back together.
Now take a ½ in cpvc t-coupler and drill a hole through the coupler.
Posted Image
Once the hole is drilled insert the cpvc from the back of the gun and then screw it all together.

Now on to the stock.
Start by unscrewing the back of a recon stock.
Posted Image
Now widen this hole so that ¼ in. copper can fit through.
Posted Image
Next take a nub of the copper and a nub ½ in. cpvc both of about equal length and put half of the copper in the cpvc:
Posted Image
Next Epoxy putty the nub of copper into the widened hole.
Posted Image
Then attach a cpvc coupler on to it.
Posted Image
Next take a ¾ in cpvc Coupler and cut it like so:
Posted Image
Next insert a ½ in to ¼ in cpvc reducer into the whole hole.
Posted Image
Hot glue it onto the Recon stock like so:
Posted Image
For this next portion you will need:
Posted Image
Cut a long length of cpvc.
Set up the parts like so:

Then take it apart and hot glue the coupler on to the longshot like so:
Posted Image
Then hot glue the orange piece:
Posted Image
Then add the stock.
For the next part you will need the following:
Posted Image
For this part there is no need to use whole cpvc, you can just use scraps as pictured.
Hot glue the two knex.
Posted Image
Then glue cpvc scraps on to the knex until it looks like this:
Posted Image
Now attach the cpvc to the reducer like so:
Posted Image
I added e-tape so that it looked better. Also make sure the 2 knex are flat against the bottom of the longshot.
Next hot glue the knex on to the longshot shell.
Take this piece:
Posted Image
Fill the cavity with a shit load of hot glue.
Place it on top of the knex.
Posted Image

And that is it. Here is what I turned it into:

And The PMG

How sturdy is the stock? I wouldn't think hot glue would be strong enough to hold it.

The stock is solid. It does not bend, flex, or distort in any way.

Asking this group that is like asking them about the female anatomy. Maybe one or two has actually seen it and know how it works. Everyone else is just going to tell you they've seen it and that boobs feel like bags of sand.

i expecially enjoy the double shot integration!
i cant say that i would sack my LS to do this or buy a new one for this purpose but if i had an extra laying around i may concider playing off of this idea.

Holy fugliness, Batman!

Pullbacks have always had a special place in my heart, though, so I'll let this one pass.

I tried this on the longshot I've had in storage and holy crap it's awesome. I changed up a few bits to personal taste, but man is this blaster efficient, comfortable, and powerful.
