More updates on my Alpha Trooper. Now we all know that the 35 dart raider drum mag does not, cannot and will not fit into the recon stock, no matter how you do it.
Posted Image

But will the Alpha Trooper's 18 dart drum mag?
Posted Image

It fits better on the stock than the 35 drum mag.
Posted Image
But it is not flush/flat like the regular clip is.
Posted Image

So, we have to trim it down a bit.
Posted Image
1st of all, this bar is in the way. You have to cut it down to look like this. You have to cut a little past the ridge in the middle. This requires a lot of trail and error testing to see if it fits)
Posted Image
But be careful to not cut all the way through! Or else your recon stock will be useless (like my 1st one is now).

Now the 2nd thing getting in the way is is on the front part that goes over the black piece on the recon/raider/alpha trooper.
Posted Image
You have to cut on the red lines, while trying to avoid the screws and screw door. (The grey lines are where it used to be.)
You only go as deep as the ridge below the orange tab.

Posted Image
Now it is not touching the grey bar.

Posted Image
And that little part you cut out in the yellow piece makes it so that it hold it better.

Now you have to cut a little off the back bottom grey part on the Alpha trooper on the left side. If you want this to work with a recon or raider, then you would have to do the same thing.
Posted Image

Now diagonal cut in the recon stock is flush even with the gun.
Posted Image

TA DA! You can now fit a Alpha Trooper Drum in a recon stock perfectly.
Posted Image

I will update other mods soon. This is my mod and I have not seen any one else to do so.

And there is enough room for my hand(mid teenager) to fit between the drum mag and the handle. Since I am right handed, the drum does not affect my hand. Left handed people will be affected by this unless they put the drum clip upside down in the recon stock.
Posted Image
Without hand.
Posted Image
With right hand on trigger.
Posted Image
With left hand on trigger and drum flipped upside down.

Cool, but it could be a problem for Nerfers with larger hands.

Yes it is but I don't have big hands so this mod is perfect. Now my alpha trooper can have a 35 dart mag and a spare 18 dart mag in the stock waiting to be used.

I say... To hell with it! Cut off the entire gray bar then put some sort of support connecting from the big yellow piece to the other big yellow piece, such as PVC or sheet metal. It'll make the stock useful and it won't break when you try to use it, and may, just may, depending on how you do it and the paintjob you use, make the stock look good. Good job anyway.

I might just cut off the entire bottom grey piece if I decide to make the recon stock a power stock, that is if I have the time. After this week, I'm back into the long hard year of school and sports.

I like that. It looks kinda awkward though. Anyway, nice mod.

dude i like it! never even thought of trying to fit the drum mags in there, so props to getting it to work, but on another note im gonna try and power stock my alpha trooper with a raider stock...though they are different colors and it might kill me to have them not match :)

Nice mod, I'm now starting to look into buying the alpha trooper after seeing the AR mod that was also posted.

I just wanted to double check. From the picture it looks like if you're doing this upside down for a lefty you won't need to cut anything? That would be pretty awesome.

Yep. You're right. If you are a lefty, all you have to do is put the drum in upside down and backwards and it will fit. No cutting necessary.
