Introduction: Nerf M41A Pulse Rifle (based Off the The Movie Aliens)

Picture of Nerf M41A Pulse Rifle (based Off the The Movie Aliens)

This mod is not created by me but one of my friends who I talked with a lot over this project as we both wanted to make a NERF pulse rifle from Aliens. He completed his before mine which when I am finished I will also post.
Note: there is no instructions at this time to make this blaster, you may infer on what mods were done but a step by step instruction is not ready at this time and possibly will never be ready.

He made this using:
nerf LongShot Rail,
nerf Recon,
Nerf LSFG (Longshot front gun),
nerf raider stock
and other materials.

curious youth (author)2011-10-22

great job ! :) props to your friend.
may i ask where he got the laxan from ? im trying to track it down. but tis quite difficult here in australia

harpuia (author)curious youth2011-10-23

he is in the USA so i have no idea how to help.

curious youth (author)harpuia2011-10-23

Maybe if you can get the comopony name off him i could contact them.

harpuia (author)curious youth2011-10-23

I think he used lexon ploycarb sheets

curious youth (author)harpuia2011-10-29

ok thanks for the help :)

I don't know if you Aussie's have Home Depot or Lowe's in your neck, but Lexan/Polycarbonate and Acrylic are both regular stock here in the States for both outlets. They're usually in the window section.

How much money did you uses on this project? (author)2013-07-03

you can get clear nerf guns on

chickenphirm (author)2013-05-16

What colors did you use build?

harpuia (author)2013-03-16

there is none here, I don't know what you are talking about

abadfart (author)2012-09-08

MAVREV13 (author)2011-10-23

i give anoying was making this epic gun????

Attmos (author)MAVREV132012-03-02

annoying? looks like tons of fun to me? this is what i mean when i say "pride in your work".

harpuia (author)MAVREV132011-10-23

i think just by looking at the construction pics you can guess.

MAVREV13 (author)harpuia2011-12-10

was it worth it? and does it face any minor probloms with stability????

Attmos (author)2012-03-02

really nice work. i hope yours turns out just as good.

DJ Radio (author)2011-01-21

You should take the liberty to make yours more powerful than the stock nerf guns.

harpuia (author)DJ Radio2011-01-21

This isn't a stock gun, the internals are modded so it fires farther than normanly, if you meant a homemade gun like out of pvc, it wouldn't make any sense to build it from that.

taowyman (author)harpuia2011-04-24

I am going to build this and most likely will make a instructable so other people can make it easier than reading this not trying to be rude but I will make instructable

psimeone (author)taowyman2011-11-11

Oh, *PLEASE* do! I'd be the bell-of-the-ball toting around this bad boy!

sithlil (author)taowyman2011-09-19

Hey man I like this....I am looking to do a Proton wand or as close as I can get from Ghostbusters. The weapon attached to the back pack. So I took a look at this and it seems right up my alley. I am wondering what you would recommend gun wise, or part wise to make the proto wand

harpuia (author)gcochrane2011-10-27

well from looking at the wand, i would say a nerf gun wouldn't help very much with it, what comes to mind could be use of pvc piping and some ploy carb plus a lot of switches and stuff.

gcochrane (author)harpuia2011-10-27

I at least wanted it functional oh well...Tanks for the help

Capt. Kidd (author)2011-06-20

your friend is uber pro.

tallmendinger (author)2011-05-25

Wow that is a nice mod that your friend did

sirodim90 (author)2011-04-07

Where did you get the plastic part that goes on the bottom?

taowyman (author)sirodim902011-05-10

like he probaly got the plastic from amazon

taowyman (author)sirodim902011-04-27

his friend made it out of plastic

Brill-iant571 (author)2011-03-22

Aliens is the best movie ever. Just sayin'.

harpuia (author)Brill-iant5712011-03-22

I agree, i am working on my own nerf pulse rifle and most likely a nerf smartgun to follow it up, i recently completed a lego form of the drop ship from the movie with working landing gears, bay, opening missile pods, wings, rotating cannon and opening cockpit. It is pretty cool.

taowyman (author)harpuia2011-04-20

hey does your friend have the dimensions for the plastic cutouts? please ask i want to make this thank you

harpuia (author)taowyman2011-04-20

give me an email and i can send you the full resolution picture of the blue print for the clip shroud piece.

taowyman (author)harpuia2011-04-21

oh my mom doesnt want me to give you my email at all so could you EDIT the instructable with that on it please cause im going to make one thank you

taowyman (author)harpuia2011-04-18

if your friend goes out in public with that he needs a orange tip for that

taowyman (author)harpuia2011-04-03

how did you people get the plastic to stay together

harpuia (author)taowyman2011-04-03

Like said above, "I did not make this, my friend made it and i posted it up for him" he probably used epoxy, super glue or some kind of plastic glue.

taowyman (author)harpuia2011-04-05

okay thanks

usb key (author)2011-03-26

totally awesome, bro. but I noticed you don't have a way of cocking the recon. is this a prop, or am I missing it? other than that, I love this mod. great job.

harpuia (author)usb key2011-03-26

it has a bolt on the side, it does work.

usb key (author)harpuia2011-03-26

OK. I was looking at the unfinished ones, with all the parts, but unpainted. I see it now.
also, how many rounds can the magazine hold?

harpuia (author)usb key2011-04-18

12, any clip works for this, drums however do not.

taowyman (author)harpuia2011-04-03

would a stampede clip work for this

lhinkle (author)usb key2011-04-02

the black pin
