Love the handle. The only thing I dont like is that the silencer is foam. Takes away from the realism. Very nice blaster all the same.

Looks good! That handle looks uncomfortable tho. How is it to hold?

Very nice. I agree with Ninjz; the foam kind of draws too much attention. Just use some sheath to put over it, maybe even some electrical tape. The handle is a little big, but other than those two things, its looking good.

I would be afraid I would be shot for holding it...

If Katachi really has pink hair.. he could use this one.

Crap.. to make this semi-on topic, a question; what's the little thing protruding out the bottom of the handle?

Oh, and nice job, I really like the wooden handle, it just looks a little big and that little thing sticking out confuses me.

The handle is styled after many loser rifle grips. They have that extra bit for comfort and stability.

Glad the handle works for ya. Can you find some pvc with an interior diamter the same as the exterior diameter of that foam silencer so it doesn't look like a foam silencer?

If you like the handle great but if not this is my recommendation:

I also agree that you should buy some pvc that will fit over the foam and scratch it up/sand it to make it look more realistic, paint it black and place it over the foam, because no offense but even if the foam silencer works, it really takes away from the effect of the actual gun, which looks really nice!

a. i have big hands. that grip fits my mitt like a glove. <insert other assorted references to hands or handwear> the main reason for it was that the trigger pull on the stock grip was way too short for my index finger.

b. the bottom bit is a buttplate, the edge of your hand rests on it, providing a more comfortable and secure grip.

b2. the other bottom bit (the rounded part sticking out the rear of the grip) is a palm support. as you hold the gun in your right hand, it fits snugly under the base of your thumb, again increasing both comfort and positive retention of the weapon.

c. the silencer is going to be covered, the design you see ther has been scrubbed in favor of one that actually reduces noise, which will have a matte-black sheath over the internals to match the finish of the rest of the gun.

d. SKANK TO THE DEATH.

Bloody awesome. I so need an LNL right away. *sigh*. If only Australia has some. I search but to no avail. *ho-hum*.

I know you've proven why you have certain things, but i generally dislike some features of the gun and would have to agree with the previous posts. Good work all the same.

I would be afraid I would be shot for holding it...

My thoughts exactly. "Die Hard"? Those crazy coppers.

*grin* again, i intend not to be seen with it. ive already survived one month of constant nerf war unharmed and mostly undetected--we play a game called "mafia" at skool, two opposing families, a few unkillable "storyline" players, hits ordered, and everyone carrying concealed weapons. its great, totally different dynamic from a typical nerf war cos its 24/7, except classes and church, and you never know exactly who is after you.

Sounds cool, there are a few of those games going around though. It's in all these web articles.

I just meant the facsimile[sp] laws and such. And yeah, you can't trust a cop to spot the orange trigger and cocker before firing a round into you. Try not to wave that thing around in public. And try not to quote that out of context ;)
