Hey everyone. I've been modding the hell out of the LS, but today was the first day I decided to open up the front gun. As I expected, it was rubbish. But I DID notice that to my surprise, it had a DETACHABLE handle/trigger.

Which naturally leads to the question of weather or not it is possible to make a homemade with the LS handle as your grip. It's quite comfortable and houses a nice little piece that would save a good deal of time making. Can this be done, has it been done, and is it practical?

Also, I have a general question of Nerf Forums etiquette. In one of my topics I posted a picture of a mod. Someone said I should re-do it, as it wasn't as good as it could be. I then re-did it. But I was the last one to post in that topic. It wasn't really important enough to start a new topic about, and I didn't want to double-post. What is the proper "Netiquette" thing to do?

Thank you in advance!

I'm sure you can adapt the front handle anyway you want. For a long time, attached it to the lower bi-pod section and used as a vertical foregrip til I decided to mount a Titan under there.

On the subject of double posting... in your case, a double post would have been deemed acceptable. You were adding to the original subject and bringing the topic anew. If you had just edited the original message, then it would not have showed up as new and thus some people who had already read it would not have checked back to see the new info since it showed no new posts. I believe we can agree that is an acceptable double post.

I don't see any reason why you couldn't.

Many people use various parts of Real nerf guns all the time.

I have considered possibly replace one of the handels on a stock gun suck as the max shot with the LS front gun's. It is way more comfortable and the one on the max shot is too small for my hand.

As long as you do it cleanly (ie. not using duct tape or excesive amounts of hotglue) I think it will be quite exceptable.

And to keep it clean you could put bondo in the cracks then sand it down for that smooth finish and then add a coat of paint and it will look like it was meant to be there.

I don't get my kicks out of you,
I don't feel the way I used to do.
I know its bad,
After what we had,
But Iím just not the angel you knew.

Awesome! Thanks for the advice.

It's good to know that a double-post is sometimes acceptable. That has stopped me from putting up stuff more than a few times. I've been working on some stuff, so expect it to go up soon.
