These are some of my more creative mods/ difficult to do.

Here's my Longshot. It has a 10" aluminum barrel that fits my darts loosely. It has a BBB spring and a plunger head reinforcement. Range is about 85-90.

Posted Image

This is my Nite-Mav. It's almost finished. I just have to readjust the trigger plate, but is otherwise perfectly functional. All of the pieces were made from 1/16" polycarbonate. The catch guard was secured using some epoxy gel and the trigger plate and plunger tube is screwed on. There is also a piece of polycarbonate up in the front of the plunger tube that redirects air only to the barrels.

These two Nite Finders are my new favorites. The first one is minimized and has ammo holders in the battery case. The second has a Home Depot spring, a longer screw supporting the plunger head, a reinforced plunger rod, and has been lubricated with silicon spray. I had to reinforce it because the force of the spring would cause the plunger rod to bend to the side.

What makes these two special are their barrels. I haven't seen anything like them before. The barrels are regular 1/2" PETG ordered from McMaster. I wanted a progressive barrel but I didn't want the added weight or the cost of brass. So, I ordered a .51 drill bit and a .53 drill bit from McMaster. They were each about $12.00. With the .51 bit I drilled about 4" from the top. And with the .53 I drilled 2" from the top. I was able to simulate the nesting effects of brass with PETG. It's the brass equivalent of having placing 1" of 1/2 and 3" of 17/32 in 5" of 19/32. These Nite Finders were intended as a prototype for spring powered turreted guns like the DTG and the Firefly.

I mod nerf guns so they look good. So leave my scopes, doodads, and trinkets alone I like them. I don't mind the weight and I started out that way on toy guns and its not going to change.

Paintjobs inspired by some other peoples'... going for the future/weathered look.

Longshot:
Posted Image

As you can see, the Longshot has the integrated second gun. I left the trigger attached to it, just cut shorter (easier for me to use...and it detaches easily). The main gun has a massive spring in it and removed ARs, shoots a bit over 100 ft. I also took the ammo-holders from my Nite-Finder (I cut that part off to reduce size) and attached one on each side of the LS, as you can see, to hold extra ammo for the integrated gun.

Maverick:
Posted Image

Not much to say on this one. Pretty standard, AR removals and stretched the spring out. Also the RR mod. Since this picture was taken I have made the clip part swappable. The rings on the back are used to clip it to the bandolier I made (holds ammo, my Nite-Finder, and this gun, with clips at the bottom to hold my LS at waist height for carrying).

(Apologies for bad picture quality)

Wow, MithMorchaint, nice paintjobs. I've siad it on NerfHq and I'll say it here z-man, I am AWE STRUCK by the magstrike paintjob.


Anyway, Here's my singled Ls. I screwed up the part that lets it use magazines (the bolt), so rather than let it sit in my basement in pieces, I put a coupler on it and I'm pleased with it.




The paintjob and sling.

Direct Threat, we need to talk when I am ready to mod my next Longshot. Maybe even my xbow. Is is necessary for you to be able to disassemble a gun when you paint it? I'll be PMing you when I'm ready if you're still doing custom work then.

at MithMorchaint's Maverick. Could you tell us a little about how you did that?

PS: I love red and grey/silver like you cannot believe. And again,


It was pretty straightforward. I took it apart, sanded it, and spray-painted the whole thing with silver. I let that dry, then painted the red parts with red acrylic. After that dried, I weathered it with a knife to get the chipped look. Finally, I coated it with spray-on clearcoat, then put it all back together.

Really very simple, given you have the paints.

So basically you put down a silver base coat, painted over it with the red acrylic, and then chipped off portions of the acrylic? And of course there's the clear coat. Sounds good and (relatively) simple, thanks for the info.

I'll probablty do it with the Viper, seeing as it will have to be based on one of those new, yellow/gold Mavs. I hate that recolor.

Shorty - you should consider attending DCNO which is held in Rockville, MD. Not sure how far that is from you.

Thanks ya'll. I used 40 grit paper to sand off the logo sign. I might go to the DCNO, when is it. I search for details later. I also just finish modding another NF into a PPK...not really but its without the silencer and with the stock laser.

June 16. They're usually held 3-4 times a year, seasonally, but sometimes the winter gets people to puss out.

I like that NF's design very much by the way.
