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!"
