So I just got a longshot for $5 (I love yard sales) and was like "what can I do with an extra longshot?" Turns out I could cram a magstrike into it.

All you need is a longshot, a magstrike, and Samson or Ham Sandwich, 2 of the cutest dogs ever.

Posted Image
First, gut the longshot keeping only the trigger.

Posted Image
Cut the trigger thusly.

Posted Image
Cut along the lines

Posted Image
Longshot cut up

Posted Image
Time to cut the magstrike

Posted Image
Test fit for the bladder and trigger mech.

Posted Image
Just needs epoxy, tubing and rib removal, which is coming soon.

Questions? Comments?

Yeah. A length of rope, a good sturdy hook and a stool. Seriously, give your parents their lives back. -talio-

I have a question. You destroyed a Longshot to make a comfortable Magstrike? I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

Will the bladder have room to expand with the trigger right there?

I think it's a neat idea, but you might have gotten a better response if you waited to post until it was done and you had the full write-up.

At first I thought you replaced the breech in the LS with the magstrike bolt to make a full auto ls. And then I see this. You just turned a magstrike into an awkward rush weapon. Your bladder isn't going to have anywhere to expand to either. You would be better off gluing the bladder on top of the longshot and keeping the bladder in there.

I understand the whole notion of "this is mine and I can do what I want cause I have another" but this is pretty much like buying a Porsche and replacing the motor with a V4.

Creative?
Yes I would say it's creative and original. It's something no one has thought of before...

For good reason!

Send me a PM with your address, credit card info, a scandalous picture of your mother, and your social security number. Okay, I'm kidding about the social. And the credit card.

Why would you do it? All that you end up with is a extra long magstrike. With three hours, five dollars, and a dremel bit: gone. But if you're happy with it, who am I to say anything. After all, it is your time and money, not mine. :mellow:
