this will show you how to mod the cs-6

take the cs-6 crappy "scope" and make it into a bad ass reconnaissance light

you will need:
nerf cs-6
a flashlight (yellow)
a hot glue gun
"scope" for cs-6
and about 30 minutes

Step 1: Prep work

i recon
The Almond6 years ago
the recon already comes with a red light
oh quick tip switch the red LED with a 5mm (3/4) High intensity Amber LED :)
Gage9877 years ago
why not use the red one built into the aimer light
cmd1237 Gage9877 years ago
i agree
Wasagi cmd12377 years ago
Yeah, plus red is better for nightime missions. Dosen't mess up your night vision so much, and is less detectable.
Amber's better I find, and Amber is less detectable then red :) I've done some tests I would post the pictures but I don't have them anymore >_>

No. The range is terrible. Unless you only play indoor wars, you won't like it too much.

I painted mine black with a touch of grey in places for a camo look.. then i got the crappy light/cruddy laser and put a REAL laser in.. still using the original laser model.. i just took it apart.. took the light out... cut the excess platic out so the laser would fit.. then i duct taped around the head of the laser so it has a snug fit in the laser holder thingy.. and now your gun has a badass laser on it thats NOT made in china...
what's the name of the Laser you used? oh and just so you know (not being rude just informing the un-informed) the "Stock Laser" in the Tac-light is called an LED :)

Good plan, but much more fun and effective way to do this is to take the light that comes with it, open it up and sauter their crap light off their circuitboard and replace it with the bulb from the flashlight. if the lense for the light doesn't work with your flashlight's bulb, replace the lense with the one from the flashlight and you have a lightweight, upgraded light that looks and fits just like the original nerf light.
I was just thinking that.

Does anyone know how to make the butt any less flimsy?
take the grey bars in the stock to a machine shop and get it machined into aluminum.
I think uin13 made a mod for that. he just took some tubes and but them inbetween the gaps.
Solder, not "sauder."

stupid mod makes it heavy when you could just use the laser

neat mod you should try adding a shotgun mod to it the flashlight would be use as a bigger grip then and you would still have it on and room to add a scope to the top
much better to turn it into a belt clip.
this thing comes with one; slide the bar on the other rail attachment.

why waste time gluing a flashlight on. holding it in you hand isn't gonna kill you
lol! yeah would it kill you to hold the flippin' torch?

hey, guys, read my instructible on how to transfer the tactical rail from the recon laser/light onto the gun. it also says how to make the laser into a much better light.
this is kind of pointless since the gun comes with flash ligh/laser that u can put on the rail below the barrel
lawlipop6 years ago
I did it, but i didn't use hot glue, just normal glue. I also cut off the top part of the sight after I push the thingy, since my flashlight wouldn't fit.
