A front end swappable clip for the Firefly.
Persionally, i'm astonished by how simple this was. forst i opened up the gun and did the usual mods. SPring strech, and Restrictor/post removal. But before i put everything back together again, i just threw out the clear housing for the turret. It's completely useless. The barrels stick into the turret on their own. Leave the Reflectors in there, they serve as a threader for the barrels.
Next Step, Sut the shell as shown in the next 2 pictures.
NExt, that little orange piece that holds the turet steady when firing, Taek that out and saw it/sand it with a dremel untill you get this: It has to be able to flip down all the way to horixzontal. And take your dremel/boltcutters and chop that bolt on the front of it to about half it's original length.
I dont have any pictures of just the clip portion, but it you look on the first picture, you can see that the center hole of the clip is widened. I just used a simple grinding wheel to widen it so that the orange piece could flip up into it easier.
once you're done with that, you're finished. Here's a picture where the clip has been removed and you are looking into the front of the cun.
I left the electronics in there. Because without the barrels in there, it leaves the Flashbulb completely exposed. Great for a quick Blinding attack.
edit: Oops. forgot ranges
From what i can tell, i have lost no range at all with this mod. Any lost range is compensated for by streching the spring. I streched it to about 1.5 times the original length.
With my special Long stephans, it shoots about 45 feet. Stock Micros, about 30. Not all that great, but for close range, you want to have the ability to reload faster than the other poor fool.
If you do not have any replacement turrets lying aroud, you can make your own following the tutorial Here. Thanks Retiate!
