N Strike Maverick Nerf Gun

I'm sure you've seen them around the stores and the price tag is decent at only $9 each.

Are any of you out there using these? I'm thinking about picking up a pair myself because the mods look amazing on them, and they look like the type of gun that would strike fear into an enemy. If you were packing two of these bad boys you wouldn't even need to pull the trigger.  8)

Those are all cool paint apps but, to pass muster for Mercs it needs modification well beyond paint apps. The 3 requirements for the club are...

1. All logos, warnings sanded smooth, all screw holes filled and sanded smooth
2. Modification to the shape/structure/composition of the gun so it no longer has the "out of the box" or easily recognizeable look
3. In universe paint apps.

There is a caveat to the CRL's about overall costume quality that is going to be much more heavily enforced on non-Star Wars, retail available, prop/toy guns.

Do you think these would pass if you fill the seams and screw holes with bondo and sanded them clean?

The images posted... no.

The first one is distinctly steampunk and theother two are repaints only. There are a couple WIPs of folks doing some Mavericks that look really good.

Ronicks here: http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=46412.0 is a great example of an acceptable mod.

If you look at my GVPG-MFP01 link, I've mated the Maverick's grip with a TTG barrel, and a lot of plastic bits and bondo. There's an option...
