Has anyone tried and succeeded in having a removable torch/ laser pointer inside their shotgun fore grip?

yes, it works well if you wire it right.

and the sopmod or whatever looks totally possible, but if i built one, i'd put the handle oon either side.

1. this has been gone over before

2. yes, the sopmod is possible, I MADE ONE

3. what the hell do you mean by put the handle on either side?
and, for future reference,

Now I wasn't sure if you had or hadn't replaced the barrel, but I thought that you had. So I guess I'll give this myth a PLAUSIBLE.

I think I still don't quite understand the point of the sopmod.

1) With a real weapon, the idea is to undersling a grenade launcher, but in order to fire a nerf arrow, or one of those ghastly titan phalluses, you would need a lot more nerf mechanics and kibble present than that small alcove on the LS allows.

2) I can see it being kind of cool to switch different sidearms in and out, but in the end, wouldn't that LS sidearm or Maverick be more versatile (for handing off to a teammate, aiming in two directions, etc) clipped to your belt than underslung, especially if it's firing the same kind of ammo anyway?

3) How would you hold that thing steady? It looks like you would either have to stuff your second under the rail (ouch) or hold either the sidearm's handle or foregrip, which could be unsteady if the rail didn't hold very tightly, and awkward and uncomfortable even if it did.

For what it's worth, the engineering and craftsmanship that you've put into it are tight, and I mean no disrespect, but it reminds me of that Simpsons episode where Homer joins the NRA: "...And that's how, with some plywood and some fishing wire, you can turn one gun into five guns!"

2) the idea is to have the sidearm so that if you run out you can immediately fire it or even blind fire around a corner and still have the full clip when you go around the corner. i just hold the part between the foregrip and the handle.

3) i just hold it on the bottom of the sidearm attachment. i find it is actually quite comfortable and it is sturdy.

ps i like the reference to the simpsons
