Is this... homemade or a modification?
I guess both.
Awesome.

I'm hoping to mold the shell and cast it in resin.
And possibly selling some casts in a small run or two.
Would anyone be interested?

I sure would. I hate the way the nf looks, but love the range and power it has for a pistol.

If the price was right, I'd be intirested. How would it work, just screw the NF internals into the shell, or would some serious work be required?

I love it when people go the extra length for blasters like these, makes me love this community even more. Also reminds me I need to finish turning my magstrike into a replica plasma rifle.

Will there be templates when you're done my good sir? Oh and also are you going to use the pull back action of the nitefinder or are you going to make a slide to make it more like the pistol.

Holy shit, it's Ronster!

Nice looking project you have going there...looking forward to seeing how it progresses. It's definitely a new approach to shells and homemades/modifications.

I really do like what you have so far. :lol: I'm a poor college student so I probably won't be able to get the resin model, but I'll definitely like to see one.

Yeah, the last pic is a WIP so I didn't think too hard about it.

You could have worded this differently. I might sig this.
ON-TOPIC: I can't wait to see how this turns out. As Brutal said, a slide would make it more like an L&L but would be harder to assemble (maybe).

Hopefully there will be little work required. I'm engineering this to be as simple as possible.

Will there be templates when you're done my good sir? Oh and also are you going to use the pull back action of the nitefinder or are you going to make a slide to make it more like the pistol.

Templates? I'm sure I could release some basic templates when I'm done.
As far as the action, I'm keeping it just as the pull-back. Any kind of sliding action would definitely make it much more complicated, thus more time on my end, making it a lot more expensive for you guys.
Not that I didn't consider it though!

Holy shit, it's Ronster!

Nice looking project you have going there...looking forward to seeing how it progresses. It's definitely a new approach to shells and homemades/modifications.

I'm definitely excited to be back! It's been a while, huh...? Haha.
Glad to see some people still remember me... :angry:

I'm not a pro at wood, so what kind of wood is that and what do you cut with?

It's MDF and I cut it mostly with a bandsaw. I use a dremel and sandpaper for most of the sanding.
Pretty basic stuff, not too complicated.

Only got to work on it a little today--only about 30 minutes--but still worked on it nonetheless.
Worked on sanding down the edges of the grip.

He built an entire shell out of wood... I'm sure he won't have much trouble adding a little nub to hold a spring.

So after all this work building a prototype from MDF board you're going to cast it? I commend your dedication to a simply aesthetic project.

Also, Combat Evolved pistol is still the best pistol.
