My apologies for the second thread, but I thought this deserved its own. My first one was just discussion and photos on developmental stages and this is me actually putting it into play.

And so I give you...

I just realized I misplaced the handle in that it's over the clip instead of the forearm grip and I don't feel like refinishing everything tonight since I'm leaving for Hawaii tomorrow.
Maybe I'll see Piney :P

Thoughts, comments, anything of the like?

Yeah, he's right though. That gun is eerily similar to the real thing. I'm not saying ruin the look by painting the barrel tip orange, but you should be careful about where you use it.

EDIT: Elf, chill out. I doubt Dark Shrimp read his other thread and neither did I.

Did you not read his other thread? Because if you did you wouldn't be making an ass of yourself. He wasnt trying to make a gun to use in a war he just wanted a sweet looking wall mounter.

And man did you ever! :P that thing looks so kick ass You did an excellent job on it way to go!!!

And have fun in Hawaii!!!

Mr. Shrimp the point of nerf haven isnt to go and put down everyones ideas and call them shit just because you dont like them (obviously admins are excluded from this) the point is to post your ideas and maybe brag about them alittle and then other people can come along and give 'helpful' 'suggestions' or positive feedback. By insulting and flaming someone for doing an excellent job I do sincerly belive that you HAVE made an ass of yourself.

Who the hell are you? I defiantely would not go as far as saying that I "put down everyones ideas and call them shit". All I was asying is leave nerf guns nerf guns. You sir need to pull the stick out of your pompous ass and chill out. Don't tell me what nerfhaven is or isn't because unlike yourself I have been here for more than a year. I still sincerErly do not think I am an ass. It's funny how you act like your a fucking role model here, but what your doing right here is hypocritical. You can't tell someone to not flame people in a flame it just doesn't work.

Whatever I'm done.

Mr. Shrimp


Those two words alone gave me many good laughs. Probably because I am really tired.
The gun looks cool. It kind of looks like something Bolsniper would make when he was 14 or so. If he was even into nerf then.

Wow! I didn't think you'd take my advice at all! Thats an excellent job!

The only thing I'd have to say is that the bolt looks a little sloppy with all that tape on it. That and you might want to smooth the carrying handle with something so it doesn't look like PVC. I['d suggest Bondo: it's an automotive repair putty that's moldable wet and sandable once dry. Maybe slop some on there and sand it down a bit so it looks more continuous.


But other than those two very minor details, you did an excellent job! I'm glad you decided to do the work. It looks a lot better, and a lot more professional. You did a very clean job on this.

And Mr. Shrimp (Tee hee... he's right, it is silly), Arcanum just wanted to make this RFR look more like a BAR. He thought that the stock gun looked fairly similar, and he was asking for advice how to make it look more realistic. None of us are endorsing the use of real-looking Nerf guns wether it be on public or private property. I'm not saying that you were flaming him, but we could have done without the snide remarks. No offense meant.


But Arcanum: do did a very, very good job on this gun. I'd love to maybe see it in person someday. Have fun in Hawaii! Ha ha. Yeah, maybe you'll run in to Piney, but how would you recognize him even if you did? Have fun, man.



Sincereley,
Pat

Who me? Hi I'm Erik B) So nice to meet you. I am sorry if I am coming across as pompous to you. That was not my intention. I dont have anything stuck up my ass. You can call me a hypocrite I dont really care about what people say about me why would they know me better than I know myself
Personally I think that even though you have been here longer than me than me you, that doesnt make you any better than me. Actions speak louder than words even online.
If you are suposed to be one of our role models then we need some new role models.


Nerfmonkey you really must have it in for me. Are you going to search out all of my posts and put me down?

Before there's more bashing about, just remember to orange up the tip of the gun so that if a cop sees you with it, you don't want to be shot now, do you?

This has been said before, but He's not planning on using it. It's purley decorative. He made it for fun, and to show it off. He's not going to go strolling around the street with it. And if he does, he'll do WAY more than just an orange tip.

So, don't worry. Arcanum isn't going to get killed because of this anytime soon.

Nice mod! I wish I could make my guns look cool, but I suck at that. I can't find any rapid fire rifles around at any store. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to stick with my nitefinder...

C'mon, be nice, Darkshrimp.

That RFR, while the novelty is nice, is kind of ghetto when it comes to absolute accurate replication of the B.A.R.

For one thing, it's really small compared to a real one. And weighs probably 15 pounds less.

For another, the taped up bolt, bipod, and carry handle are out of proportion, though it does resemble the BAR.

But you know what? I actually like it. Despite the fact that I normally can't stand when Nerfers get all carried away with mil-sim, I guess the fact that it looks like it was slapped together, for this particular instance, makes it that much more cool.

But paint something orange on that thing. Cops nowadays, they just might shoot at anything or anyone carrying a toy gun that looks even REMOTELY like some kind of "assault rifle".

Good job, Arcanum. Maybe we will run into each other here in Hawaii. Probably not, unless your parents want to see the lackluster island of Molokai (we have nothing, but lots of it!) :D

If you don't want an orange tip that much, but it would be good when you are outside, you could put a pvc adapter with a threaded endcap painted orange so you can take it off when you don't want it.
