Introduction: Nerf Recon Removable Foregrip

Picture of Nerf Recon Removable Foregrip
 I saw a recon foregrip mod on but it was screwd to the gun and as I like to use the gun without the barrel that was no good mod for my.

So i decided to make it removable. This is the result:

(I forget to make pics in they process so the pics are from when it's finished. )

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

I didn't use much materials:
the gun
the barrel
the "tactical sight"
some metal scrap
some velcro
a scissor
a rasp
and a hot glue gun

Step 2: Mod #1

Now we will attach the velcro and rasp a bit off the barrel.
Adding the velcro isn't that hard. just find a good spot where the metal can get and glue it.
as you can see there is a litlle pin that stops the TS (tactical sight) from moving.
You can just rasp it away.

Step 3: Mod #2

First will just lay it on top so we can see how it should be.
Then you can glue it on top of the TS.
When you place the velcro on the metal, make sure that it's placed correctly and everything can move completely back.

Step 4: Done

You're done!
just put it to the test.
Please comment!

Step 5: Extra

Things to do:
{1} What is also nice to do, is the shaving of the edges of the metal. This makes it better to use. (done)
{2} Increase the amount of Velcro.                                                                                                    
{3} other material. Velcro isn't working as well as i like. any ideas? 

(mods : AR removed, o-ring replacement, some soft stuff to stop the sound but it doesn't work yet, any tips?)

with barrel       : a average of 12 m (40 feet)
without barrel : a average of 16 m (50 feet)

nice mod but what is the farthest it has ever got
whats the accuracy at 45ft out of 10
and what is the expected range and latter after some use did it lose range

baconex360 (author)MAVREV132015-01-05

Dude, this is an external mod. This recon would have relatively the same range as a normal recon

stardidi (author)MAVREV132010-03-24

target : chair
distance 12 m (40 ft)
result : 2,5:10
i think the wind causes a little movement to the darts

MAVREV13 (author)stardidi2010-03-24

yep wind does effect range and accuratecy but after some use did it lose range??????

stardidi (author)MAVREV132010-03-24

 you mean that it kinda broke? when that's it no.

MAVREV13 (author)stardidi2010-03-24

i mean recons sometimes tend to lose range after some usege DID YOURS  lose range after some usege im not being mean but after time 2 friends recons i modded lost range and the mod didnt brake it but after some time did yours lose any nerfers tend to say that after time their gun loses 1-5 ft after a few days, weeks, ect also your mod is good but insted of that metal will brass/pvc work??????????????????????????????????????????????????

stardidi (author)MAVREV132010-03-25

 it might have lost some range(i'm not sure it dit)  but it is still beter as before the modding.
i think any material will work. i used metal because that was within my reach.
but the Velcro is losing grip after some use, so i'm looking for a beter "sticky thing" any idea's?

MAVREV13 (author)stardidi2010-03-25

no sorry alsowhat velcro?????????????????? and where??????????????????????????????????????

stardidi (author)MAVREV132010-03-25

 you mean what Velcro is? it's that stuff you got on your shoes/ jacket : image
and  where to place it: just read the instructable and see the pics
could you be a bit more clear on what you mean (it think i don't understand you totally) 

MAVREV13 (author)stardidi2010-03-25

i ment what does velcro have to do with the recon mod also my pc is messed up so i think it deleted half of what i typed. check out my recon mod if you didnt already

stardidi (author)MAVREV132010-03-25

 sorry but i think you mis understand my mod.
the Velcro is making the foregrip removable.
and yes i did already check it

MAVREV13 (author)stardidi2010-03-25

oh sorry about that. also will you pain that and for the pump i think you can use crazy glue.

stardidi (author)MAVREV132010-03-26

 i just find out that in our little frog land, painting is illegal :( 

MAVREV13 (author)stardidi2010-03-26

that stinks.

stardidi (author)MAVREV132010-03-27

 that is true but:
when you paint it would look to much as a real gun(what is illegal) 
and you would risk 5 years of jail

MAVREV13 (author)stardidi2010-03-27

i dont mean to sound like im gloating but where i live im aloud to paint it but the tip has to be orang thats why all my mods have orange tips and that realy sucks for you and it does

stardidi (author)MAVREV132010-03-28

i also heard something about that orange tip but it don't wanna risk anything

and in what country/state/land are you living? 

MAVREV13 (author)stardidi2010-03-28

im in USA. PA and luckly around where i live we are alloud to paint them and if you want to pant them do light red and some other colers a bunch of people i know do that and the cops dont get them in truble

stardidi (author)MAVREV132010-03-25

 i'm sorry but i'm dutch so it isn't always so easy to understand what you mean.
but you mean to glue the metal to the gun ( cause that was the intyer idea to make it removable)  and i 'm going to paint it some day

MAVREV13 (author)stardidi2010-03-25

you asked for a better sticky idea is that for the pump or other???????????

stardidi (author)MAVREV132010-03-25

by now i use velcro( look in the instructable for the place) but after a little while it stops sticking and when you load the gun  the velcro just snips off and you will need to but it back.
i was looking for a better material to stick the metal the the loading thing but what is removable, so no glue, cause that is the entire idea

MAVREV13 (author)stardidi2010-03-25

you could aquip 2 0s on the cocking mech and put a mettal rob in a hole in the 0 and maby fit the other end in with a nut.

MAVREV13 (author)stardidi2010-03-25

also what all mods did you do to your recon besides the obvious?????????

lazyboy13 (author)2010-06-27

DUDE my recon plunger broke and i barely modded it. the gun sucks and i didnt shoot it that much. although this mod is prretty cool. try finding something to cover up the piece that connects to the bottom of the barrel. ill sub

seabananers (author)2010-04-30

if you put the little laser thingy on the bottom then the scope you get a half decent bipod

superjail3 (author)2010-03-22

superjail3 (author)2010-03-22

stardidi (author)superjail32010-03-22
