DOUBLESHOT MODS



Hello and welcome to my doubleshot modding guide. You can make a sexy gun in a day using this simple guide.
1.
First thing you should do when your gun is fresh out of the pack is to cut off the barrel. Do this using a small saw or anything thats good for cutting large plastic. Afterwards, your gun should look like this.

I like to cut the gun behind the nail (look on the bottom) to add a little bit of barrel for that "sawn off" look.

2.
Now you may paint the gun. use any color, but i really suggest the Krylon Fusion for plastic spray paint. It bonds with the plastic and looks awesome. It is $4 at Home Depot. to start unscrew the stock (this is the only screw you have to deal with!) and spray paint it and the plastic bolts seperatley from the gun. I used tape to cover up the trigger and a little hole on the bottom from which you can see the string (internals) and you probably dont want that to be touched. You may also want to stuff kitchen towel down each of the barrels, to prevent you from painting those.

Here is a pic of my gun halfway through the painting process. Notice the stock and bolts on the left.

3. While you wait 20 minutes inbetween coats you can use a small drill and put it through the back of each shell. make the hole a little bigger and take out that rod that the darts sit on. Now you can use stefans and have a bit more power. (You can use a nail and a hammer, although the drill is best for the cleaner cut.)

Here is a before and after of this mod.
Before on right, after on left.

4. Screw the stock back on when you are done. Now enjoy using your new Doubleshot.

This is my first Thread and second post, so leave some comments please!
Note: I will update pics with more quality and better shots if i can.

I think if you read what's in my sig, you will understand. A rule of thumb that nerfers go by is to never paint blasters black. You will create a huge scene/problem if you bring that outdoors. Instead paint it neon pink, yellow, green, etc. Also, none of the mods shown here are new, and the blaster isn't "sexy". The modifications have been performed a numerous amount of times.

Well first off, you don't need to make an entire new post just because you didn't make something BIG, BLUE, AND BOLD. Secondly, this has been done already and, in mine and maybe a few others' opinions, the first looks much sexier. Thirdly, NerfHaven does not take kindly to all-black guns (I found out the hard way). There's not much you can do now except, maybe blaze the tips ORANGE and if other flames ensue, beg for forgiveness. On the lighter side, not that bad of a first writeup and welcome to 'Haven.

EDIT: Dammit Noodle, you beat me to it.

Dude, it's just a thing on Nerfhaven. They just hate black guns for some reason. I personally disagree with it as people may want to paint however they like, but it just doesn't show creativity unless other colors are added.

Edit: Make the tip orange, so that it is also visible from the side. Many people have airsoft guns, and they are required to have an orange tip, because they are so realistic. This should as well, so cops won't...you get the point.

First of all (not backseat moderating) here at Nerf Haven we post properly. Second off all if you point this at a person or cop there not going to ask if that's real or not. Also a orange trigger means nothing it is covered by your trigger finger.
EDIT:: Dang Lotus posts faster.

First off, nice write up for your first write up, but this has been done before. This belongs here. The link is a Modification and Paint Job thread.

I hate when people try and make their gun all "1337" and get a red tiger or blue tiger camouflage. Be creative.

No it is just a thing on Nerfhaven, and no we just don't like black guns for some reason. Its for safety. I don't care where you live there are cops, and people who are afraid of guns. If you harmless toy looks like a gun the cop or the pedestrian you are aiming at doesn't know it is harmless. The real point of "eye raping" is for safety.
And don't tell me your only going to use it inside, because I'm sure your house has windows and I'm sure you will end up outside with it one time or another.
It may seem like people here don't care about your feelings or yourself in general, but we don't want a nerf gun being your reason for death.

Even though I'm not a moderator and this isn't my job, I don't care. It's fun to set people straight.

YOU AREN'T A FUCKING MOD SO STOP ACTING LIKE ONE. You've been here for less then a goddamn year so stop pretending to be like your a Vet. Comment on the fucking gun and just let the mods do their job.

Now to do what I just said to do.

This really isn't a mod, just a paintjob. So you're lucky, you don't have to consider this your first mod.

You did a little AR mod on the shells, but besides that you just slapped on black paint and cut off the barrels.

You've got the basis for a nice gun though. Open her up, do the pull-string mod and the no ejection mod, paint on some pretty colors, and you've got a nice indoor gun.

For future reference, most painting is done with the shell open and the two sides up.

So give all those a try and more internal work on your next gun and you'll be on the road to a modder.

I agree that blue tiger stripe would be a better idea, but you still should blaze it. It still would look like a real gun without the blazes. As previous posters said, people can see into your house and cops really won't wait if you look like you're waving it at them. Technically all things remotely resembling firearms are supposed to have something like a 1/4 inch blaze on the tip. This applies even if you only play inside. Most nerfers do find themselves in an outdoor war at sometime in their life so it's better to be safe than...well dead.

If you're still looking for painting suggestions... Might I suggest putting some "hot rod" style flames going down the barrel. It would be fairly difficult but would be sooo kick ass.

Blue stripe, orange stripe, hot rod, eye diddle pink, I don't think NerfHaven cares what color it is as long as it's not painted B-L-A-C-K. I still say blaze the tips by the way.

You're kidding me if you don't have the skill to grab a can of eye-rapingly bright pink and spraying a gun with it. yes I realize you're referring to the decals though.

NerfHaven does not like Black guns because its RACIST. Anyway, good write-up. And you should paint the shell's too.

Nerfhaven does not hate black (or Blacks), Black is needed for adding bold details and lettering.

The problem with painting your toy gun black is that its a cop out, the laziest option and so pathetically overdone that its beyond boring.

Your problem is that you have a toy and if you are so fucking insecure about playing with a toy that you have to paint it black so it looks more threatening or dangerous, you have some problems that maybe you should worry about.

When you come to a nerf war 95% of the other attendees will have stock looking blasters, and another 3% will have eye raping colors haphazardly sprayed over hotglue and etape. Currently about 1% of the NIC has the artistic skills that are required to make a blaster truly stand out in a crowd. Then there's the insecure, immature douchebag wearing face paint and combat boots standing out like a throbbing hardon in a crowd of comfortably dressed comfortably heterosexual nerfers that are more likely to spend the whole day making sure you aren't sneaking up behind them than not.

Come on Sissy we are all playing with toys here, so make them look like toys and make it look like you aren't ashamed of the hobby.

Don.
