Intro: Nerf Longshot Basic Mod +extras
Hello viewers, readers, and time killers. This is my first mod for Instructables. It is a very simple nerf longshot mod with some extra goodies added to make it more...awesome.
Step 1: Removing AR's
First thing to do is remove the AR's. To get to the inerds, just pry open the orange bolt. I used two flat head screwdrivers and POP, just dont force the thing off. Im not gonna go into detail on how to remove the AR's considering that there are more than enough sites with how to remove them.
Step 2: Pistol Integration W/barrel Addition
Again, much of what I did can be found online. Integrate the pistol component onto the location of the the bipod.
The Barrel component was added for the awesome factor. Simply cut about 6.25" from the muzzle (6" at minimum) and use the "front sight" from the pistol/barrel extension.
Step 3: Mag Mod Banana Style
Another simple mag mod. I was unable to find any "banana" clip style mods...so i did my own. I was going for the M16/AR15 style bend in the clip. With the bend, only 12 darts will fit, but the feed is actually great. The inside walls where the feed ramp glides have to be shaved ever so slightly to accept the angle for a smooth feed.
The reinforcements I've seen online were with small strips of wood. I used the other feed ramp and cut it down into usable peices to add support. Also, I went ahead and split the mags completely inhalf in order to hot glue the inside as well as the outside for added support. Just make sure to hot glue the inside on the right spots or else the feed ramp wont glide so smooth. I used alot of electrical tape for the springs.
Step 4: ...and...yeah
It was a simple mod to do. If there are any questions about the mag mod, pleas feel free to drop a line. I'll be more than happy to go into detail. I really think that the banana style really adds awesomeness to the this mod along with the lengthened barrel. Great nerf gun for HVZ.
Tools used (wouldnt you think that this would be placed in the beginning?) sharp cutting blade/dremel, philips screwdriver, pocket knife, hot glue gun, automotive silicone, masking tape, cutting/needle nose pliers, ruler, coat hanger, leatherman, and a funnel.
