So yesterday I was nerfing and I was useing my breech modded LBB. My friend rushed me after I missed the shot. I didn't have a sidearm because I don't like to carry guns in my pocket as they always fall out. So yesterday I decided to attach another gun to my LBB so that I had some defence when being rushed. I also wanted to use the gun seperate if I didn't want to carry the LBB around. And then I had an idea...

First thing I did was cut a coupler in half and stuck it onto my main gun. I put lots of glue on so it wouldn't come of when I pullet the other gun out. You'll see in a minute what I'm talking about. You don't have to cut the coupler in half if your feeling lazy.

Then I took the gun I wanted to attach (I chose my cut down NF) and glued on about 1 1/2 or 2 inches of cpvc to the top of it. If your using a PVC coupler you need PVC on the top of your gun.

Now I can attach my NF to my LBB and I can take it off if i want to soemwhat duel weild them. So I have two shots on this gun now. THe NF has a faster ROF than the LBB so GEtting rushed shouldn't be to hard to overcome. You can do this with any gun that you want. Some of you will probably ask why I didn't clip mod my LBB. I didn't do that because I'm a terrable modder and I don't have the right tools for it. Pobably gonna get burned for this post but oh well. Sorry about some of the spelling mistakes...tired. So it's basicly like how different guns can attach to the Titan.

So -- this doesn't really pertain to your mod -- but why did you cut the handle off your NF? Do you have really small hands or something?

Otherwise... Iono. It's a good concept, but at the same time a brutal way of completion. You never mentioned why you cut the coupler in half.

If you want, I'm sure I or anybody else around here could make you a holster -- because you're right, pockets tend to suck.

Don't like holsters. Tried them. I'm usualy fine with one gun, just this one took a few extra seconds to prime so I did this. I cut the coupler in half so the NF wouldn't be sticking out so far. I wanted to keep it as close to the gun as I could so the aim wouldn't be too far off of the LBB's aim. The handles gone because it wouldnt shoot and I had it as a duel NF with that being the bottom gun and I just decided to do this with it after I fixed it. But ys I do have hery small hands. I can handle it just fine like that. Hope I answerd all your questions, and thanks for the compliment.

How can you not like holsters? I can understand if you didn't like a certain kind or one that wasn't well-made -- but honestly, there's drop-thigh, crossdraw, backbelt, under shoulder, over shoulder... have you tried them all? I'm not dissing your idea, I'm just saying that with extensive use, the coupler could lose its grip or fall off, the NF might start getting in the way... etcetera, etcetera. Curiously, what don't you like about holsters?

A suggestion: if the NF is too far out, then you can always cut the CPVC sticking out of it instead of the coupler.

If you were able to cut down the length of the PVC ypu are using it would make the overall appearance smaller. Try and cut the PVC down so that when the gun is in the coupler there is barely any PVC showing. just hot glue.

Then see if you can relocate the pvc on the nitefinder from the top to the side. This will make it closer to the gun.
It will also make it upright. Also make it more streamline with the gun. And now you would be able to use the top rail of the NF if you see fit to throw a crossfire on top there as well.

My two cents.

I like the idea of a removable integration, especially for a bigger gun like a LBB...but I'm not sure about your attachment method. It looks like you used hot glue to get your coupler on there - and considering the lever action of your NF sticking off to the side - I wouldn't place good odds on it staying put in a run.

Anyway, that's just my take on it. Let us know if it gets battle tested.

The only holster I've honestly tried was a duct tape made one. So I was wrong to say I don't like holsyers. And I didn't cut the PVC because I did that on my last atempt of this and the gun fell of the PVC while it was attached onto the coupler (it wasn't attached very well.) and I couldn't get it back out. So half a coupler gone. I made it longer so that I could get it out if that happened again. I glued the gun on the way I did Forsaken_angel24, so that when I ran witht he gun, I could hold the handle in so that the gun wouldn't fall off when I was running. Okay, any more questions, comments?

I would use an L-shaped coupler on the gun so to remove the NF you pull toward you. I would also lay the PVC ontop of the accessory railwith a dowl holding the PVC up off the rail. Then you would have a horrible sight too. :blink:

Now all you need to do is put a BF on it (or any other semiauto) and you'll have a
ghetto N-strike. :blink:

General Cole, I explained why I didn't want to put the gun on verticaly. I never liked the N-strike. No good came out from the guns that were in that set for me.

I like Cole's idea.

Nerfnewbie- I'd cut down the PVC a bit and then your idea is good too.

I don't know about you guys, but I much prefer having a gun seperate. What if you just want to take your NF somewhere? I would rather have a holster.



But that's just me.

Well, I find it kind of ironic that you glued the attachment system on OVER the built in attachment rail.

The best option in general would be to take the green part out of a CF slide (rail clip), and attach that to your LBB.

Given that you already hacked off the bottom of the NF handle so as to attach it to the bottom of another handle, though, I think you should definitely just integrate it into your LBB in the same way. That is, glue it to the bottom of the LBB handle so you can fire with your pinky.

While you're at it, you might as well put on another removeable NF where you have yours now. It's a good location too.

If you want another shot, carry another NF in a holster.

About your current system:

1) What's keeping the NF from getting tilted up or down?

2) If you do stay with this system, I'd recommend keeping the cpvc coupling, but using 1/2" PEX instead of 1/2" CPVC. It's a hair thinner, and a bit less grippy. It would still be a firm, strong fit, but much easier to pull out.

And, finally, a question:

Wouldn't it be better to have an even higher-ROF blaster on there? I'm thinking maybe a Mustang Six with a pivot mount on the cocking handle, so you could speed-fire with one hand.

You could also just put a Quadded 2K on there, that would give you range and speed.

Hmmmm.... that looks extremely bulky and uncomfortable. Maybe you could've put it on the bottomm like the Hornet to decrease a bit of bulkiness. Oh, and why do you have duct tape on your NF? I would just put hotglue. I will put up pics of my TTG attached to my BBB later. I made the cpvc on the gun short, so you can see why it adds much less bulk to the gun.

I removed the AT2K. To hard to get off. The NF is no problem on it though. I have duct tape on it just to reinforce the glue from all the use of it.
