now that you finished prep work it's time to finish up

take the piece that you didn't throw away and glue it to the top be careful

hey the first pic is fine

atef159 (author)2010-12-05

i recon

The Almond (author)2009-04-14

the recon already comes with a red light

basher345 (author)The Almond2010-11-25

oh quick tip switch the red LED with a 5mm (3/4) High intensity Amber LED :)

Gage987 (author)2008-07-09

why not use the red one built into the aimer light

cmd1237 (author)Gage9872008-07-21

i agree

Wasagi (author)cmd12372008-07-30

Yeah, plus red is better for nightime missions. Dosen't mess up your night vision so much, and is less detectable.

basher345 (author)Wasagi2010-11-24

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 >_>

kidengineer (author)Gage9872008-08-19

can't see as good

blazzer (author)kidengineer2008-08-25

is that gun without moding it a good 1..

CapnTac (author)blazzer2008-08-26

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

Blister (author)2008-08-31

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...

basher345 (author)Blister2010-11-24

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 :)

SniperX_ (author)2009-11-09

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.

(seabear) (author)SniperX_2009-11-29

I was just thinking that.

Does anyone know how to make the butt any less flimsy?

Iridium7 (author)(seabear)2010-11-18

I think uin13 made a mod for that. he just took some tubes and but them inbetween the gaps.

An Villain (author)SniperX_2010-04-27

Solder, not "sauder."

hugok (author)2010-07-12

oh you could use the light that came with it

MAVREV13 (author)2010-03-17

cool mod but check my mod MAVREV13'S AR15 Armorlite is its name. also will it get a paint job

matt920 (author)2009-08-13

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

Tenz (author)2009-06-14

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

mettaurlover (author)2009-06-03

much better to turn it into a belt clip.

mettaurlover (author)2009-05-01

this thing comes with one; slide the bar on the other rail attachment.

blaster884 (author)2008-09-15

why waste time gluing a flashlight on. holding it in you hand isn't gonna kill you

knexdude152 (author)blaster8842009-04-30

lol! yeah would it kill you to hold the flippin' torch?

mr.guy (author)2009-04-20

i made a reflex scope outta mine and im gunna cut the front sight off so then i can mod it into a m4 carbine styled front sight MAN SO FAR IT LOOKS SO SWEET!!!!!!!

The Farfignugen (author)2009-04-03

what exactly does this mod do?

The Farfignugen (author)2009-04-02

tee hee

aseaheru (author)2009-02-11

scope sux

aseaheru (author)aseaheru2009-02-11

elmers sux

aseaheru (author)aseaheru2009-02-11

i did this, but used a crappy cheep plastic knife, use hot glue cuz elmers sux and you got bayonet, if its one with compis, is nise for directions.....

nerfer (author)2009-01-10

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.

nickkoppelaar (author)2008-12-26

this is kind of pointless since the gun comes with flash ligh/laser that u can put on the rail below the barrel

lawlipop (author)2008-11-28

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.

maxmaz2 (author)2008-11-04

ive got that same backpack!

kidengineer (author)maxmaz22008-11-20

ummmmmmmmmm cool?

miols (author)2008-11-04

yeah it was recalled and resold with a "safe" version aka it shoots 5 feet and its impossible to open it for internal modding

G7s6 (author)2008-10-17

I've done the same, except i used som cheap lenses to make a sniper's zoom scope (no pics srry)

thatguysbow (author)2008-10-13

didnt they just recall these guns for giving people cuts? or am i thinking of a diffrent one.

Jr Hacking kid (author)2008-05-13

how about velcroning it instead of glueing it

thats fine

Mango Man (author)2008-07-11

Just buy the tactical light Nerf made. It comes with 10 micro darts as well.

cmd1237 (author)Mango Man2008-07-21

yes it does but what if this is your only gun that is practicly $10 down the drain

Wasagi (author)cmd12372008-07-30

It costs, like $7
