Hello everybody,

 

This is a project I've been working on for quite a while now, and I feel like it has reached a stage where I actually have some concrete things to show. From the moment I saw Torukmakto4's Tacmod3.1 I knew I had to build one myself. I love the tacital look the blaster achieves with the flat top and bottom. I wanted to get just a bit more of a vlean look by extending the barrel shroud, and filling the sharkteeth like Foamdataservice's dentist rapidstrike mods. I'm also working on a custom flared magwell made from some flattened pvc. I'm not quite sure if I like the aestethics as much as I thought I would. If you guys could let me know what your opinions are on the magwell that would be greatly appreciated. I'll add a picatinny top and bottom rail, and maybe a pair of side rails as well, but I'm not sure if I want to disrupt the clean lines I have on the barrel shroud. I would also like to extend the grip like on apexweaponsystems ultimate rapidstrike, but I currently dont have a suitable replacement grip and I have my doubts about the structural integrety of a glueed on grip. Any thoughts on that? It will be running an artifact red cage in wich I will try to fit some worker flywheel just to see how the combination turns out. I'll either run xp180's or hellcats on a graphene 3s, with a honeybadger or hellcat as a pusher motor. Finally there's a little sneakpeak in a future post on the end of the photostream, hope you guys enjoy.

Internal shots, battery/motor specs, and a wiring diagram would be nice.

Nice work so far.

 

As to the grip, you do mean the "pistol-grip"/where the trigger is? It really won't be taking all that much force on a flywheeler. I have a spring-powered Pump Action Shotgun (PAS) with a grip that was attached only by adhesive and/or solvent weld, and it has held up very well in spite of the stresses involved in priming back the plunger.

 

Just be sure to use a proper adhesive (methylmethacrylate-based I hear is among the best for these plastics) and I think you'll be fine.
