I originally built this rifle for a costume because I wanted something that would look nicely detailed compared to the relative simplicity of the suit. Originally it was just a silver nerf recon but over time I started to customize it as the suit was upgraded and made more complicated. I decided to keep all the functionality of the nerf gun to give me something to show off. (cocking, loading, etc) This project has been on and off for about 2 years now. I occasionally touched it up here and there and added some more detailing. As it is tied to the now retired costume I haven't given it much attention. I recently found it again and though I should share it since I have gotten so many messages about it on other sites.

I took the cowl from the infamous knock off dollar store assault rifle.

The rear part of the stock made from resin coated matteboard and the bits of a second Nerf Recon.

I actually don't remember where the hand grip came from, might have been a buzz bee rapid fire. (edit you can see in the picture above that it is)

Here you and see the version that I wore last, the black undergrip was a poor imitation of Halo 3 assault rifle and the flashlight had to be removed to be activated.

I ended up repainting the handgrip, wiring the light to a switch on the old nerf sudo-lasor site and weathered it. I lost a magazine so I ended up buying the spare magazine dart pack and painted up two new mags with it.

Here is a silly video I tossed together when I found it again.

As for the future of the rifle, I don't know. I get a lot of messages from people interested in buying it so I might ebay it. I've done the master chief two years in a row and likely won't again. I haven't upgraded it since it never was intended for any nerf battles so I doubt any hard core nerf people would want it. It isn't terribly accurate either so I doubt other prop people want it either. We'll see.

Cheers

sudo-lasor


$>sudo lasor
lasor: command not found

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Anyways, that's awesome! I really like the cleanliness of the paintjob.
Ranges?
Right, it's stock. Whoops...

Doing this as I speak. I have no idea when I got it...my DAD got it some 15 years ago, but that doesn't matter. Anyways, it keeps jerking around all over the place. I try to hold it with a rag...It doesn't look like...much.

What I like about this is how you can remove everything so the recon doesn't lose functionality.

Have you considered modding it at all?


Oh, and you can't go wrong with huge Dell flat screens.

Interesting, but why didn't you use the existing imitation toy instead (perhaps to keep the functionality to shoot Nerf darts like a previous poster said)?

I suppose it could would be good for a longer length to hold? Anyways if you ever make a new one, consider taking the back or even whole shell from a Firefly, as I believe that has some very usable similarities in shape.
