I know alot of people dont like me on the site but its my first modification/homemade I made the Buttstock out of wood

I took the brass mod from the cxwq mod on this very site but my local Canadian Tire did not sell brassso i settled with the pvc.
Idea first came up when i asked myself "why didn't any nerf gun have a butt stock?" So i sawed up some wood and carved it up it looks like the plastic stock of the M4A1 Assault rifle. It is not full done yet, I added a flashlight and a detachable Silencer which really works (made of a leg i took of the tripod of my telescope it fitted well with the pvc covered with a styrofoam tube insulator 49 cents at my local C.T) I also added the ammo holders becouse the ones it came with do not work and a trigger guard.
The scope i found this piece under my table no one knows what its from but it helped me out.
While range testing I figured out to achieve optimum range results jam the round in all the way ( I use half inch stefans) Silencer increases range by maybe 10 feet or so.
Im working on a paint job i dont know what to do yet some ideas would be appreciated.

I like where your head is at, but there are some improvements to be made. First off, I would get rid of that big flashlight, if anything go with a small maglight or something that doesn't bulge out from the gun. As for the scope, if you really want to leave it for looks, then go ahead. But it really won't help you if you're using it to aim. A carrying handle could do the trick. You deifinitely need a paintjob on that guy, its too awkward without it. Also, I would try 1.5" to 2" darts for a splitfire, you'd be able to get better range and accuracy. What kind of range are you getting with the .5" stefans?

Besides that, I really dig the look of the gun. The pumping handle under the silencer looks hot.

YAY something positive!
Great now I can gloat.
Paint job colour suggestions anybody?
The Range is good im getting the same results on the mod page without the silencer.
with the 1.5rounds it slows down thevelocity with the silencer though superb accuracy results.with silencer on and off. Welting results are good too i left my sister red for about 3 days .
Btw.Thanks for the positive review man.

Yay, Black and Gold are my school colours. I think you should do it.

You might try just re-doing the stock with some kind of PVC coupler to tidy up that goo area. Even if you slice off the excess you'll lose some kind of integrity. Might just want to cover it up with something.

Since you are going for a 'tactical' feel...I'd suggest matte black, but leave the transparent side's oval unpainted to give it a cool twist.

Yeah, get a minimag in black and put it on there.

-Groove out.

I think the "coolness" factor in nerf guns is lost when they get painted black. Some folks just about pee themselves with excitement when they see black. Personally, I think it's boring (and potentially dangerous, but that's another discussion altogether). I recommend sticking with the bright green of the splitfire, and some red flame accents.

Add personality to your custom guns, people. Don't ruin it with black.

Maybe he likes black. Just because someone paints a gun black doesn't mean they are lazy or couldn't think of anything else to paint it.

Looks good, a little sloppy but not bad. I really like it, especially the barrels. Good job.

I paint my guns camo, that is, orange and blue camo. They look cool, especially since orange and blue are opposite colors. Practical, no. Kickass, yes. Too many commas, absolutely.

Thanks guys... NOw that i fixed the butt stock i can uncsrew it and take off the silencer and it becomes a side arm again. I have to work on the sights though i cant think of anything. I love the gold barrels too. Only the left side of the gun is black trying to figure out what to do to the right.
OH MY GOD!!! I was doing another range test and i pumped it al lthe way no silencer and i fired it into my washroom 30-40 feet or so and the hot glue at the end of the stefan i made Cracked! it cracked thats how powerful it is.

I think that overall, it looks very nice. I like the black paint in contrast with the brass-colored barrels and pump.

I'm a fan of black weapons...I think that it looks better than some of the flourescent colors that guns come in, though most of the time I'd just rather leave the default color on. And, in truth, I'm a lazy painter; cover what you don't want painted with masking tape, and then paint on a coat of Krylon Fusion spraypaint, the color of your choice. While black paint could be an issue at a public park, I generally nerf at other people's houses, so it's not an issue.

I like black im now testing with the 1 inch stefans they work better with the silencer and make it much more quiet all you will ever here is a pop and a half inch in diametre wealt on your head.
I think im on a Modifying streak, i made a breach for my splitshot i can now load just by opening a a piece of insulater (pictures will follow) IM SO PROUD its interchangable modifications.

Hey, pretty sweet looking gun there. What did you make the silencer out of? You say it improves its range a little?

I made it outta an unknown metal material from a leg of my tripod for my telescope but anyway it does increase range. wne tout to my friends place like 20 minutes ago just now i found a straw a bubble tea straw those huge ones looks like Petg but anyway i stuck a dart in it and stuck it in the barrel i got some optimum range about 150 feet. Another persons trash is another persons treasure.
