And just in case anyone thinks otherwise, I am the same dude as who posted this on nerfhq.

I bring to nerfhaven, the CRS12 "Mavshot". It definatly isn't the most amazing mod in the world, but it is really useful. Long ranges with the modded ls, and in case the enemy comes close, the mav is there in the wing, or should I say nose.

The ranges are normal for the mav with out air restrictors. The longshot has the ar removed, and has two higher weight springs in it. It gets on average 50 to 60 feet with standard streamline darts and modded dart tag darts. I'm sure a stephan could get it up to 70. Both guns are stephan ready.

The mav can be cocked while firing or reloading the longshot, and visa versa. As for cosmetics, I've gotta chip off the excess epoxy, then I'm gonna paint the blue and silver bits white with all the yellow and orange bits black.

That's pretty cool. But it looks like the Mav is at a downwards angle, which could be a bad thing. Be careful.

I'm assuming that you can't disassemble it anymore right? Conceivably you could could make it so it still could be opened easily.

Good work. How sturdy is it on the LS?

The mav looks angled because of the angle of the pic. It's flush against there, and it does come apart, I was careful not to epoxy the seams on the mav and ls. It's sturdy enough that it survived being dropped down a flight of stairs by my cousin today. Didn't even come a bit loose.

Welcome to NerfHaven! On another note, shooting both would be difficult because you would have to extend your arm to cock the Mav, bring your hand back to the bolt and cock, which might get tiring. But, it could be useful if you didn't have any ammo in the LS. Although, I don't see the point of showing your NF and Magstrike. Good job, despite the cocking problem.

I really should reevaluate my Nerf carreer. I have been ultimated multiple times in a war, shot by a girl with an arced NF, and EMBARASSED by a 6 year old in quidditch on xbox. What am I doing with my life?

Why would I cock the guns at the same time? And after what had to be hundreds of shots today, I didn't feel the cocking getting tiring anyway. The reason I showed the nf and mag is because my camera ran outta charge before I could get pictures of the mavshot itself.

I really like this integration. It looks clean and is effective. I rather have a Maverick instead of the front attachment of the Longshot on there.

The Longshot really has unlimited integration potential. I'm sure we will be seeing Longshot integrations for a while.

Nice work. It's good to see someone new around here actually contributing to the boards.

Well, the mav has a good RoF, so why not tack it onto the end, eh?

I have a question. Would the handle on the Maverick get into the way of loading and unloading the clips on the maverick? Oh and you spell it Stefan, not Stephan. Just to tell you.

It's close, but the handle doesn't interfere with the clips. And I'm just too used to typing the name stephan. :rolleyes:

Interesting integration. I dont beleive it was stated but I am assuming you only epoxied the cocking part to the LS and the rest just gets pushed forward. It does look awkward to hold the front gun though.

Welcome to NH.

The only reccomendations I would make is wait a day or so when answering everyones questions. That way your threads post count isn't %50 you.

Sorry about all the posts, but I'm an insomniac and need something to keep busy in the night hours.

yeah, the cocking mech is the only part epoxied on. Quite simple, I know. The front gun makes holding the rifle more comfortable. When the bipod was there, and after I took it out, the gun was quite awkward to hold. Now with the front handle it is more comfortable, and it doubles as an "omni pod". (is omni pod the correct term?)

I'd consider chopping the mav handle off, if you can live without the vertical grip, but IMO it would look much cooler.

I was thinking about chopping the handle off, but then the gun would be awkward to hold. And when I paint the gun, the mav will blend in much beter.

Shag carpet works well with photoshop? I would have never guessed . . . :rolleyes:

You know what would be even more awesome? Cuting off the handle, and putting it in upside down. That way the cocking handle is like a shotgun type design.

Nice job, and welcome. I think the mav was a bad choice because of its poor range, but if it works for you and you like it good for you.

I was going to do that, but then I'd have to mess around with connecting the triggers together, and I like being able to have both guns primed at the same time and still be able to fire both separately.

And the idea about having the mav on there is more for protection than range. If I got rushed while priming the ls, while reloading the ls, or if I miss a shot, I have a backup 6 shots from the mavrick to cover my butt.

Very nice. But I don't think it looks too practical or easy to fire without excessive effort. (Extending arm to cock maverick, reloading either, cocking LS) As mentioned above.

It's really easy to reload and prime each gun. Reloading the ls is just putting another clip in, and reloading the mav is like normal. The only hard part is priming the ls since I've got a big spring inside it. And pushing the mav to prime makes it easier.

That looks extremely comfortable.

Granted, that's because my primary is a crossbow with a turreted Splitfire mounted on it in the same location as your Mav is on your longshot.

In my opinion, contrary to that of some others who've posted here, I'd say leave the Mav handle intact. The Mav is cocked by pushing it forward, whild holding the LS back with your main gun's firing hand. Cutting the handle off would make it [a] look less a part of the original gun and [b] make it harder to prime the Mav.

Congratulations on (in my opinion) replacing the Longshot front gun integration that is becoming exceedingly common these days. Considering the fact that both guns are of the same color scheme, I'd say that with a minimal amount of tweaking, it could really be made to look like you bought it at the store that way. Practically does already!

As for the join between the shells, I agree with you on its sturdiness when dropping it down stairs and such. Similar stuff happened with my primary too, and it took all of it with ease.

What I'd like to warn you about, is when you're actually playing. Running around and intensely playing, it will work fine. But be careful about how you dodge and things, ebcause epoxy, no matter how strong, still isn't indestructible. All you ahve to do is fall on your gun, and your body weight will snap them apart. Now, with this gun, that doesn't look like a hard or difficult fix. But it gets to be time consuming when two brassed turrets separate from your prized turreted splitfire, which separates from your crossbow. That kinda ruins the day for ya, you know?

Great job! If one of my clan members ever decides they want to mod a longshot, I'll suggest something like this. I really like it, regardless of my not-so-fondness for Longshots and Mavericks.

Props!
