Thanks to ya both :P Let me know if you guys think of any other ideas for the rail system. I think someone mentioned integrations like an SSPB or something, which wouldnt be bad...hm. Back to work-

Enough, all of you. You're all entitled to your own opinions, and it's blatantly obvious nobody is going to sway anybody else. It was his decision to make a mod like that, let's just respect that and quit bickering about the necessity of a scope.

While not very practical, it's still a neat utilization of a part of the Crossfire that people may not have used otherwise. And it could be easily applied to other attachments.

To get back on topic, maybe you could put a barrel holder onto the rail instead of the optics. Or maybe some dart holders. That would be worth the effort.

Team_Slaya said it first, but yeah, dart-holders would be a great idea for that rail. You could slide 'em off for storage/holstering with that nice rail-attachment.

You could always mount a light on it too. Get one of those silly 'tactical' Airsoft lights, and use that green piece to fit it to the gun. Or you could be cruel and get ahold of some old flashbulbs... (Can you hear people screaming 'Flashbang!' yet?)

Or you could mount that green piece backwards onto the NF, (glue or screw it, you'd want it stationary) and use it to cock a Maverick in your other hand.

There are so many things you could put on the gun, you just need to puzzle 'em out and experiment. A scope was a logical first choice, though I suppose it has its fans and detractors. :D

So what if he dosn't use it sometimes he might and i say it looks awsome and you guys should stop fighting in this guys thread and post about his scope mod he did. I think it is an awsome use of a broken gun.

Thank you, MM. Anyway, the ammo holder is a pretty solid idea. I'm beginning to regret having cut up that six dart capacity holder that used to be attached to my crossfire... :D Oh and team slaya what did you mean by barrel holder? I'm not sure I understand, sorry.

I completely disagree. This allows you to watch the enenmy's location while having a weapon ready. I think another good use for the rails is to build in a SSPB, so you can make snap-on integrations.

He's right, and wrong. it happens that at the place where z80 and I nerf, there are raised towers, and high grounds from which you can hide and track your enemy from, and you can better see him in dim conditions (sunset hours). if the magnification were more than 5 times, than it would be a hinderence, and this is only about 2X, which is helpful.

but it does depend on the map you're using, because nerfing on a soccer field, with bleachers and fences and rocks as defences, a scope is going to be annoying and worthless.

so its not necessarilly a bad thing, and with the titan, it would be great.

the rail would be great for integrations too, and would be most effective on the smaller guns (Mav's, TTB's, etc) to add firepower. another idea is that you could use the rail to hold a clip, (as in the clip that snaps on to things) from which you could attach the gun to your waist or something.

Or instead of doing work we could all just wait till fall when the longshot comes out the scope fits all N-Strike guns and 2 or 3 of the dart tag guns.

You know, the Magstrike is coming out and it has a detachable scope that fits all the n-strike guns. But nice job. I plan to put a rail from an EX-3 on a crossfire so that you can cock both at a time.

Actually, it's the Longshot that's gonna have that scope that you're referring to, but yeah I was aware of that. However, I had started working on this before that announcement came out, so I figured I'd just finish. But that's a good idea you have about the EX-3 and the Crossfire.

I said that yesterday and if you go to wlmart and ask for their cheapes scope for a real gun the one they showed me works just fine.
