I am going to show you how to make an awesome looking silencer for your NERF Longshot!

Step 1: Supplies

Okay. You are going to need a few supplies:

-The barrel from your Long Shot's front gun
-The barrel connector ring
-A 15" long piece of 1/2" PVC
-A new roll of 2" wide Electrical Tape (color does not matter)
-6 couplings with a diameter of 7/8" and a length of 1 7/8"
-Hot glue gun
Take the stock off and its a nerf g11
anyone noticed the longshots look like a g11?
Would this work on a Recon CS-6? I can't find damn longshots ANYWHERE IN THE ENTIRE COUNTRY (of Australia, natch). GNGNG. This would look better if it was black, though. But that's just my opinion.
hey dude, im in aus and i got my longshot from k-mart on special for 38 buks! its awsome! k-mart has a good range of nerf guns right now in the huge toy sale.
big w also has them as well as kmart
I bought my longshot off Amazon.com, try there!
ya it should work on the recon
This wouldn't silence it. You're much better off opening it, and padding the moving parts with foam, since it's not the air, but the springs that makes the sound.
In the UK this makes the Longshot illegal :P <br>So unfortunately I can't try this without risking a hefty sentence for posession of a firearm. Dammit &gt;.&lt;
What makes this illegal? It does not silence the rifle at all. It is as if you have the front pistol attached to it.
the only way to silence a longshot would be to put some sort of padding inside it.
You can still hear the sound when you shoot is but it makes it look cool. p.s. first to comment. ha ha
It does make it shoot farther a little bit
does it make the ls any more silent or is it just for looks.
The photographic quality is somewhat inferior to what I am expecting sorry Im so high-standard-izeded. :)
Are the couplings you are talking about the 2 pieces of PVC pipe in the picture?
Yes. If you go to a hardware store, they will know them as couplings. I do not suggest you use PVC pipe, because the coupling has a small ridge on the inside of it, which allows 2 different PVC pipes to be connected evenly throughout the coupling.
what happened to the but?
Oh...I took these pictures when I was in the middle of doing mods to the inside of the gun ;). You want to try taking the screws out/ putting them in the least amount of times as you possibly can. The threads on this gun strip fairly quickly. Same with the screw heads.
i found that out kinda quick,lol
do stefans work with tha longshot
when I get the longshot I'm gonna do this, oh and you will have the same barrel length for less weight
