I want him to try to cock the LS with a BBB +LS spring with a strap.

Elf, I think you can. Just mount it a bit lower than you usually would. Then put another longscrew in until it hits the pumping handle of the integreated gun.


Im not sure what you mean. Could you explain further: mount what lower? the frontgun? or the slug's pump handle? And also the priming distance for the front gun and the actual longshot isnt the same. And ontop of all that the cloths hanger thing used to fire the Ls and the front gun at the sametime wouldnt work. A better thing to do if you want an extra shot wold be to take some at2k innerds and put it in that extra spacewhere the bi-pod used to be. It could be like a grenade launcher or something! Load it up with some shotgun stephans and you've got yourself a great close range/ spreadshot attachment for you Ls!

Just put the cocking handle on over the integrated front gun.

That ^ = a major speedbump in your plan I would think. And you wouldnt be able to fire the two guns seperatly anymore.

That would be a problem wouldn't it, well, I guess that you could have a two stage trigger.

I still just think that having an at2k hooked on there would be better. Other than that it wouldnt look like the rest of the gun, but that can be fixed. And one of the cool things about an at2k integration is that the trigger can be put almost anywhere. The same goes for the pump (aslong as you have some tubing). Honestly would you rather have 1 extra 30' shot, or a multiple dart spray that can go almost as far?
This would be a backup option if you are being rushed. Leave the accurate longrange shots to the Ls and use this for closerange.

:D ...great, now I gotta go get an at2k to use for this... ^_^

Me too, my AT2K's check valve is blown, I think. I just need to replace the pump a monstrosity of a pump.

I don't. Hey slug would it be possible to mount a laser in the site and hook up the wiring to the main gun? What do you think about integrating the secondary gun into the LS along with the pump?

If you want a laser on the gun, I would suggest that you carfully drill a hole in the front part of one of Captain slug's shot gun foregrips And you would even have room for the batteries in the grip. And logicaly yes one could easly mount something as small as the average laser pointer inside the Ls sight.

I didn't think that it would be big enough hold the batteries, but if it works, it works.

I dont see how it wouldnt be able to hold 1 laser pointer (most have their batteries inside)

1. Hey slug would it be possible to mount a laser in the site and hook up the wiring to the main gun?
2. What do you think about integrating the secondary gun into the LS along with the pump?

1. Yes
2. The two pump handles over-lapping eachother is the main issue I can see. You might have to make a different kind of handle for priming the integrated side-arm. I'm not sure and I don't plan to bother because I'm more interested in making a higher capacity magazine for the main gun than I am in cramming two guns together.

I would have put in another battery and a button so that it can be on for a very long time.

The Foregrip Revision 3 prototype is finished. I had to change how the half-tube grip attaches and the end result is that the new kit WILL NOT INVOLVE the use of solvents in any way, making the kit easier for me to construct and will increase consistency and durability.

Wow, the tin can idea is actually a good one. Perfect fit to the hand and the ridges provide grip. Nice.

I will have to check my account, but I'm pretty sure I can send you a payment either tonight or tomorrow. Any chance of getting it to me before Saturday? Let me know.

I'm not sure. It's been really difficult to find time to devote to machining the kits.
