Okay, I've changed quite a bit.
-Changed the grip to look more like an MP5.
-Found a way to put a stock on it.
-Had to change the cocking mechanism for the stock, added a "scope".
Basically I changed everything.

Like before: the grip comes off so I can reload. And the "scope" can click off. (I made the gripmovement smoother)

Here's my Nite Finder team:

A closer look at the new cocking mechanism. This thing was a right jerk. I had to take it apart 3 times to get it to work properly, once the catchspring jumped out and got lost, next the plunger was in sideways, and next the replacement spring was too big so it didn't shoot.

I've had a lot of fun doing this, everything is very sturdy, the scope is just for looks, it's not even a scope, the cockermechanism gave me a headache... but yeah, it feels really cool.

By the way: the PVC on top doesn't look that crooked in real life. It looks kind of weird in the pictures.

Fantastic job!
It looks really good, and it sounds like you had alot of fun doing it, which is always important.
The cocking mechanism was always the most frustrating thing for me when I was putting my NFs back together, so I feel your pain.
Keep up the good work.

Thicken the mag and give it a paintjob and it'll look awesome. Nice job so far though.

Not bad! Looks kinda like an AK though, at least that was what first popped into my head.

Very nice, it looks really comfortable to hold. I would wrap the rest of the grip in that black tape and paint the rest as ompa suggested. With all that extra legnth on the barrel, do you still get about the same range as you usually would? Oh, I really like the lego cocking mechanism too.

ya that's really nice. If you want it to look realalistic, give the NF it self some paint and the PVC handles and barrels some paint too. Otherwise looks really great! And is it a pain to reload? Because you have to take off the front

They aren't weapons. Don't call them weapons. They're only weapons if you make them so.

It's because of the "bannana" on the front. The front handle of an MP5 is straight. Anyway, great mod. I wish I had the paitience [spelling?] to do that.

Thta looks very nice. Great job, especially with the cocking mech. My only suggestion, like others in this thread, is to paint the whole thing so it has uniformity.
