After one day of work I have finished my mod. As you will see in the pictures it is as easy as a piece of paper this mod is very efficient and surprisingly strong.
It also saves on space so instead of carrying a bunch of bulky mags (unless you like to do that then by all means do it). But if you don't then you pretty much just carry a bunch of darts inside a dump bag or dart pouch. You can also just put darts in the blaster as you would like. I feel it would be a good HvZ secondary if you run a mag guzzler because for one it can have a stock and barrel so incase your primary malfunctions you will literally have another one with no extra clutter I feel like the best loadout for this would be this gun, a stryfe, and a triad. More mods will be coming soon. UPDATE: I now have different variations of this blaster. I have made
The bullpup style which the front white hanger is used like a trigger I 1466214183923-876169800.jpg 14662142404511693495149.jpg

The next is carbine this can be made with the regular attachments
1466214542879-670540539.jpg
And the final one is battle rifle
1466214587275-819723315.jpg
I would like to know what you guys would like to see special with the carbine variant and the battle rifle variant. These two are blank slates minus the internal mag. So please comment on that type of mods you would like to see.

UPDATE:. I have now added and upgraded a few things on my quickshot 12.

I have added a return band made of braided elastic fibers I got from my Gma , this allows me to pull the blaster slide and let go to prime because it will retract on its own.

The second one is I have added a metal bar to the shell to hold in the bullpup trigger bar.IMG_20160621_000633.jpg IMG_20160621_000640.jpg more updates soon.

Can you explain a bit more what you did and provide some better pictures? The title makes it sound like you set up a mag locked in the blaster so you can load it on the fly, but we'd all like to know more about what you did. The picture shows locks you removed, how do you load the mag though?

 

Also FYI, I believe in another post you asked about pump-gripping your retaliator. I'm working on  I've finished a pump action setup for a retaliator: Link.

The portion in the spoiler would almost make it alpha strike like which would be awesome.

I believe he removed the ability to take out mags by inserting the paper into the mag release, making the clip permanent. I'm the second photo, you can see hat hes actually cut the shell top so that when he primes the top slide, there's a hole which he can load darts directly into the top of the 12 mag.

Yes, I can sort-of see that, but I'd prefer for him to explain it clearly, preferably also with more pictures. It's more so other people can figure out what he did and maybe do it, and less so that I can figure out what he did and do it. Otherwise it belongs in the stickied mod pictures thread.

What I did was remove the lock and wedge paper inside of the mag lock compartment. Next I removed the curved things off of a twelve round magazine. Finally I cut down the priming slide and removed the slide thing that goes over the darts to prevent ripping. Here are some better pictures I never was good at taking those.

Yes I was and still am interested when you post it I will make sure to make a design. I feel that would make a great addition to what I already have.(I haven't given up on it.)

By doing this to the top of the clip, do your darts pop out of the top of the clip when the breech is open? How do the darts stay in place?

No they surprisingly don't but the drawback is you probably shouldn't load all twelve rounds unless you have new darts. I ran this system with very worn darts so this should be a dream with new ones. Also I will test more to see why they don't pop out.

Much improved, thanks.
 

What I did was remove the lock and wedge paper inside of the mag lock compartment. Next I removed the curved things off of a twelve round magazine. Finally I cut down the priming slide and removed the slide thing that goes over the darts to prevent ripping.


Did you removed the breech tooth too? It seems like you'd need to to make it a quickload; but if you pulled that out, I am also really curious how the darts are staying in place. Is there just enough mag feed lip left to hold them in there?
 

Here are some better pictures I never was good at taking those.


Lighting is the biggest boon to good quality picture taking. Turn on all the lights and/or take the pictures outside. The next is quantity - take 4+ of the same picture, use the best one. The last thing is having a fairly monotone background - your second images do this better than your first. A stand for your camera helps but isn't required most of the time.

The other thing you want to make sure to do is get your entire subject in the scene. If you want to show us the mag cut, show the whole mag (ideally also outside of the blaster). If you want to focus on the paper'd release, zoom in on that. It's *really* useful if you can take an overview shot and edit it with freeware tools to highlight the things you changed, but that is not always necessary.

 

Yes I was and still am interested when you post it I will make sure to make a design.

 

It's pretty straightforward, I've got the front working but I'm looking for a bolt to hold the breech to the new slide.

Yes I removed the breach tooth and I figure out that this 1466179336672-1607026531.jpg and this 1466179388955-876169800.jpg are what keeps darts in as you see here 14661795365471693495149.jpg
