After seeing what you did with that pistol, I'm REALLY looking forward to this rifle build. You've certainly piqued my interest, sir, have fun with it!

Cool a longstrike mod ;) I have a thing for those ;D
That it is ner Vod!  ;)
It is somewhat inspired by your longstrike/verp mods! I am trying to keep the length of the body on this one though since it is more of a "sniper style" verp! I am also building it with lights (to be upgraded with sound later) so there will be multiple switches integrated into the build for light/sound triggers!

This should be a fun one!  :P

Seriously though, vor'e Vod!  ;)
Thinking of making a side torso or cross-draw holster for the DL-33 because of the angle of the scope and I want the sidearm on my left side, think the side torso will work better with the kama too!  ;D

Just remember that your ability to reach across your body to draw it will be limited by your armor, from what I have heard.

Yep, I realized that last night when I test fit my torso plates, ??? the holster would be positioned lower on my side where I can actually reach, and draw it... It will require a bit of R&D to get it made but I prefer the option since I have a leg pack that fits on my right leg only so a drop-leg gun holster is out.  :P

 :oRise zombie thread!!! :o

Ok, I couldn't leave well enough alone... first post-OM upgrade!

Since I'm going for Spec Ops: Sniper brigade membership I will be needing a bladed weapon of some sort...

So I am going for a simple besk'ad:
(Sorry no pics of the first steps here :P)
- First, I traced the pattern twice (one right side up and one upside down) onto the same material I used for my plates (thin wall 4" solid PVC Sewer/Drain pipe from Lowes)and rough cut the pieces out.
- Next I heated up the rough cuts with my heat gun, flattened both halves perfectly flat and re-traced the pattern to the flattened pieces (this had to be done because when tracing onto the pipe while round you actually lose some length when the piece is flattened.
- Next I drilled holes in each of the corners of the blade/handle on both halves (to use as alignment holes when gluing the halves together), I then cemented the halves together, placing nails in the alignment holes until the initial set, removed them and compressed them between two 1x4's with C-clamps and Sprimg clamps overnight...

...and this is what it looked like at that point ;D:


- Next was to cut out the blade with the jigsaw with a fine tooth blade, then clean up the edges with the Dremel and palm sander:


- I made the grip to be used in either the normal or inverted position:


- I also started shaping the main and top swage blade "edges":


I still have to cut the thumb guard, add the blade cut-outs and lanyard hole then the wooden handle sides that will be held down with chicago screws.

Stay tuned... ;)

Got a little bit more done!

I haz handles! ;D
Shot of the plywood handle after shaping with the Dremel tool and then a decent once over by hand with 150 grit sandpaper:


And the first coat of stain:


I still need to beat them up a bit more and put a couple more coats of stain as well as burning something in Mando'a into the handle, just have to decide what it's going to be!  ???

OK, I got a couple updates on my besk'ad...

First off I cut out the lanyard loop in the pommel and added the holes to the blade from the original concept:


I also added the wood burning to one side of the handle:


Then promptly realized I had misspelled "Ijaat" as "Ijat"...  after I had burned it  ???


The inscription reads "Ijaat o'r kyr'am" or "Honor in Death"

I have also done 2 coats of auto primer (with wet sanding in-between) and 2 coats of aluminum base coat:


The blade will be painted flat black with some decorative designs to expose the silver base on the side of the blade as well as the blade edges ;D
Then It will get assembled with chicago screws and weathered as a single piece ???

Appreciated Bud! 8)

Got the matte black layer painted and some more natural light weathering like you would see on an actual hard anodized blade:
Overall:

This was done using 600 grit sandpaper after a single coat of flat black dried with my heat gun... ...Took all of 10 minutes from start to finish ;)
