Jacq's Nerf-mod sniper rifle
« on: Apr 21, 2018, 05:08 AM »
Hi all.

This is a continuation of this thread
https://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=147953.msg1846518#msg1846518

As a quick header, here's what I've got


And what I'm going for

So, here's where I'm at so far...

Cutting bits out to make way for the new barrel


I'm taking inspiration from Ryi'nock's build (see previous thread) and side mounting the magazine, hence the hole cut in the left piece of the pistol part


With new barrel in place and scope number one in place but I'm still waiting on a rail mount for it


More to come soon...

Its a good start, Personnally i like a bit more hack n slash so they are totally unrecognisable. But will wait and see where you are going  ;D

Thanks vod! We'll see.  My plan for it keeps changing slightly over time.

Did a bit more this week.

Fixed the stock to the pistol with a couple of binding screws and plastic spacers. I'm going to use "plumbers weld" contact adhesive to glue it together once I'm ready for that stage.  This it just to give extra strength to it


Also got my new scope rail. Had to cut even more out of the pistol housing to get the barrel to fit properly though. I'll see what I can do to patch that up later.




Next jobs are to: glue the magazine slot to the side; figure out what I'm doing with the end of the barrel; decide what I'm doing with the stock as i might cut more off it; and, figure out how I'm going to fix the barrel to the body... ;D

OK! More progress!

More scope parts arrived...



I made a second scope out of plumbing


And it started to break where I'd cut the body too much... :'(


...but I think I fixed it  :-X


It's a lot stronger now!

I also started cutting out some bits to seal gaps with. I'll glue all this in place once I'm happy that it'll stay together without.


Ciao for now!

Nice work so far. One thing that really screams Nerf is the dart holders on the top of the stock. Something will need to be done with them.

Was just about to suggest making a cheek rest from Sintra to cover those. ;D

Today's progress started by gluing a narrower pipe inside my existing barrel



"Why?" You ask...
So I've got a bit more length on the barrel ready for when I put some Chicago/ binding screws through the body to secure the barrel in place


I've also finally glued the magazine attachment to the side

Impressive work. Having done a Nerf Mod myself it's even more impressive. Can't wait to see the finished product!

Thanks vode!


Here's today's update.

I drilled some holes for the long binding screws I've got to secure the barrel.



I've also cut some grooves out of a bit of pipe so is can sit on top of the screws


Then I cut said pipe to reasonable length


The plan with the thinner pipe is for it to be visible right through the outer barrel, as below (see the grey pipe), hence pinning it down with the screws.

(Fun fact: when you cut that white pipe with a dremel it turns into a fine powder that goes EVERYWHERE.)

That's all I got time for today folks, I'm about to go to bed after watching Deadpool 2 :P
