If it is possible could you do a more descriptive write up?
Things like highlighted pics where you made your cuts is the only thing missing I think.


Yeah, just give me about a day or so.

Gonna have to take more pictures and edit them and stuff.


EDIT:
I just found what could appear to be a suitable plunger head replacement that I got off a marshmellow shooter.
It's got a much better seal than the original plunger head.

I'm going to go test it now.
Wish me luck.

EDIT:
Well, I tried it.
And it didn't turn out so well.

Turns out it added some lenght to the plunger making it too long not letting it cock all the way back.
And the new seal is too good. Its doesn't allow the plunger to move fast enough to propel the dart any good distance.
So much for that.

So, now I'm going back to put the old plunger head on.
The rubber band is ample for keeping the original o-ring in place.

It's gonna be loads of fun taking all those screws back out. [/sarcasm]

Well, I was bored.
So, I decided to see what it would look like with a paint job.
Everything that was blue, is black.

It actually look pretty sharp.

Now that I've seen that picture, you have no choice but to give it that paint job.

On the topic of the mod itself, I expect that to become a standard mod to the longshot. People will, in the near future (for example, whens elling a modded LS in the trading forum) say Longshot - spring replaceement, restrictor removal, barrel replacement, front gun case mod. It'll be a daily part of the vocabulary, like "quadded 2k".

Excellent work. The paintjob (if it turns out that cleanly) will look pretty sweet too.

Yes, I am going to do that. How do you get 60 ft with only a BBB spring? I have a BBB and LS spring and I get fourty. What darts are you using?

For the tests I was just using stock darts.
I get a bit more range with better darts.

Did you remove all the air restrictors?

Um, how is editing the photo of your gun considered painting? And yes it does look good in black. I'm mostly finished with the paint work on mine.

He was just doing a mock-up of what it might look like painted black.

Beautiful work by the way. I wasn't planning to get a LS, but now I just might need to.

Wow, if I wasn't holding my longshot right in front of me, I would have never guessed that you intergrated the front gun. That is really clean. It looks the best though because it matches.

I think Athena would be an excellent name for it, because she represented the disciplined and honored side of war as opposed to Aeris, who represented the chaos and distress of war.

What about Diet A&W Sparkiling Vanilla Classic Cream Soda. Comparatively some of the previous names were better, but what about Chaos, after that is what is going to happen when it is used.

Here's a corny name: NiteLoser

"Nite" comes from the sneaky color scheme (if you do indeed paint it), and "Loser" comes from how the LS was originally supposed to be somewhat of a Nerf asshole rifle, which we all know is in fact a loser rifle. Also, since "lose" is the opposite of "find", "loser" is the opposite of "finder", making the name a horrible pun on "NiteFinder"

"The Sturge" also has a nice ring to it.

Or you can not hijack the thread... Half the posts were just about a name for a gun that wasn't even the topic of this topic. I already said nice mod, but since I'm posting again. Nice job.

Ultra sturdy. I'm suprized that it's so sturdy.
I used some super-glue and then some hot glue over that to help enforce the super-glue.


As for name suggestions, they all sound really cool. Especially "Athena" and I like all the puns that "NiteLoser has...
When you guys first suggested Greek god names, I thought of Odysseus, which wouldn't be a bad name either....

Is there any way you could use a cord or wire of some sort to pull the trigger on the sidearm? I've tried it with the coat hanger, it's just not working out.

hey every body I have been lurking for a while and have seen some great ideas but I do have a question about the long shot front gun. I want to keep it attached to the front of the long shot for the extended look and have it be able to fire, but not have the handle attached to it is there a way to mod it to where pulling back on the priming handle will prime and then just automaticly fire it??

Morpheus: Are you saying that as soon as you let go of the bolt thing it will slide forward and the gun will fire? If that's what your talking about, then just get rid of the catch. There is this little thing above the trigger with a spring attached to the bottom of it. I'm not exactly sure what it looks like because I don't have a LS yet.

And Dart Attack; that is a really clean, well done integration. It looks as if it was manufactured that way. If you could get the ranges up to 100' or so, that would make it even more wicked than it already is.
