weapon build first timer
« on: Aug 25, 2014, 08:22 PM »
so here are some pics of my first go a modding a toy gun. Replaced the front barrel with PVC, added a PVC scope and some PVC along the sides. I know my mods are not at the level as some of these builds, but i'm learning.

I would suggest to cut off the trigger guard. It still says Glock to me with that signature turn out guard. Other than that, it looks good.

You will probably want to sand down the side rails and maybe try it without the flash light attachment and including like midnight saint cut the trigger guard  ;D

Agreed on both points.  Cut down the grip, minimize the appearance of (or remove) the Picatinny rails.  Other that that, it's looking fantastic!

Thanks for the ideas. I was actually thinking about removing the bottom flashlight piece, but was a bit scared of cutting it off. I did not want to ruin the gun, but I did it and I like it better that way. Also working on some other parts of the gun and will post some updated pics soon. Thanks again for the input VOD's.

So here is an updated pic of my blaster. I removed the "flashlight" and also cut off the trigger guard and made one out of plastic to replace it.

So I have completed my rifle. I started out with a Nerf gun that my son had. The gun was missing the stock, which was fine as I wanted to mesh together different pieces to make my rifle. So I ended up with the base being a Nerf gun, the stock is from .... well I don't know what gun  it was from, but it works great, and some PVC pipe and weathered cloth. So here are some pics of what I started out with. I separated the front of the gun and placed a piece of PVC to extend the barrel and reduce the Nerf look. You can also see that I have sanded all of the Nerf logos off of the gun.

These pics show the holes filled and that I disassembled to front part of the gun to paint the inside black.

The following pics show the gun pieced together to see what its going to look like and then assembled and painted.

And the final product

Love the blaster! And the rifle, too...

A thought: ya know that flashlight you cut off the blaster? Would look great as a second scope/rangefinder...

Looking great, my man! Can't wait to see the whole enchilada together!!

Wow! You sure you're a first timer  :laugh:
I can see where ConDar is coming from with the rifle. Try removing the Nerf clip and see how it looks.

so I did a little apoxy sculpt work on the clip of my rifle to take away some of that "nerf" look and added a sling. I updated my final rifle pic with the new additions.
