big bore sniper nerf conversion
« on: Dec 21, 2014, 11:47 PM »
hey guys slowly building up my kit but i am heavily involved in building my heavy snipers rifle out of a modded nerf centurion. here is how far i have got!
i have chopped alot off and added a new wooden stock and custom scope,also extened the barrell with an old vacuum pipe
before i prep it for painting i was after some opinions as far as "nerfyness" goes i know that alot of bumps need to be removed but im just after the overall impression from you guys! ;D

@_@  Oh lordy... thats not just big bored, thats HUMUNGOUS.  Thats what, fifty mill?  I love the Centurian nerf rifles, wicked things and almost as tall as I am.  With what you've done already, its probably taller.

Looks cool.
fill all the screw holes, modofy the trigger a bit, remove and fill some of the slots and ridges, and the nerfyness will start disappearing.
If you do the above and give it a coat of primer, you will get a much better idea of where its going. It's a tough journey nerf-modding, I'm gking through it right now :)

That type of trigger is hard to mod, maybe extending the  holes that are in it. Or you could try to open the area behind the trigger if you don't mind having limited use.

Sure its big, but can it blow something up.

I just took out the back panel, and roughed up the trigger profile a bit. Removimg that backing is the main thing.

That looks pretty good actually.  There are a few small pieces that, since I am looking for them, i notice.  But you are probably good. It will really come down to your paint job though.

There arenít a lot of Nerf mods that I am a huge fan of but this one looks like it is coming along very nicely. As Jorad said it will come down to the paint job to make this look excellent, but it has some real potential.
