I did some detailing on my two Barricades, and now they look a bit like the "Lacerator" from the "Ratchet and Clank" videogame series. I figured coloring in the "radiator" hoses on the barrel, and adding some color to the rear hardpoint would bring the overall look together. Plus, the barrel no longer looks like it was stuck on at the last moment. Other additions are painting the grips, the safety, the drum, and doing the screw heads to look like futuristic "magnetic screws", and the clip loop in now two-tone.

Modifications include, the 9-Volt conversion: (I'm using rechargeables)

And the Drive Wheel taping: (I've also implemented the trigger-link momentary switch mod)

In Topic: Flip-up "grenade" Sight

I hate to burst your bubble, but it's already been done. http://nerfhaven.com...hl=Ladder Sight

This is a much easier way to do it, but his had more options on his ladder.

I took a look at that one, and it's really nice, but this one is, as you mentioned, much simpler. I may do some testing, and write the approximate distances on the notches, just like the real thing. Google "Grenade Sight" and a couple of the images are pretty close to the way this looks. I used them as inspiration.

The gun it self is, again, a little too tacticool, but its not bad for a first gun.

I've seen that word in several threads, what exactly does "tacticool"mean, and why is it a bad thing?

This really is fascinating, but it needs way more ghillie suit.

That's pushing it a bit too far... Well... If the ghillie suit was in the traditional NERF colors... Maybe. No, it's still too far.

I was wondering if you could explain how you came about this reasoning, as it seems extremely counter-intuitive.

One would typically think that a person would grip their blaster most securely if the blaster's stock was at a comfortable length for that person.

I have a weird grip style, so the shorter stock works for me, plus I need my eye as close to the scope as possible.
