When I first got the stinging scarab I thought "Hey, what the hell its nerf right! I can mod it.". So I have done it.
When I first got the little guy it looked alot like this.

A dart would slide over the little pole and then you would shoot it. Here is a pic of the internals after I cut the barrel off.

I sawed the barrel off at the base and slapped a 2" barrel of 17/32" on there. I sanded down the plastic and a bit of the brass so the epoxy had something to bite into. Then I just carefully put it back together. For those of you who havent seen how this gun functions, There is a handle on the belly of the creature that unfolds from its base and pops out as a makeshift handle. Here are a few pics.

Here is the belly of the scarab you can see where the handle pops out. (above)

the wings open up and the front two arms pull apart when you pull back on the plunger then you let go and they snap back together. Pretty cool looking. I took a video so you guys can see the wings and arms motion.
Way of the Scarab
I am pleased with the gun to be honest. It gets about 40-45 feet on average with a BB weighted asshole dart. This creature feels like more of a slingshot then a gun but its fun to own and looks good in the arsenal because of its unique colors and firing style.
(Kirby I got another first to add to your directory!)

Nice job. I have one modded into a cocking pistol, but I'm combining it with another mod that's not done yet.

Freaky. Just freaky.

I never thought I'd see the day, but you modded a Stinging Scarab.

Major cool.

Loser to bruiser (well, up close maybe).

Nonetheless, it's a good mod, and stuff like this really gets me going. All we see are NiteFinders, Mavericks, AT2ks, Crossbows, and N-strike systems. Good to see the odd and neglected come out to play.

Okay, I've been doing a little bit of modding with my recent heavy work schedule, but I need to get the camera out to snap some pics. Less than spectacular blasters with practical mods.

*Two bruised thumbs up*

Good job. I used to have one of these, until I tried so much and broke it. Was it just my gun, or was the handle REALLY small?

I do find the handle small but I dont expect it to be big because of how it folds up into the gun. The handle is flat but I still find I can get a good grip on it.
