Finished Halo Sniper Rifle by Scarlet-Impaler Finished Halo Sniper Rifle by Scarlet-Impaler
Sorry for the shoddy picture here.. I'll take another one tomorrow or when I bring this when I cosplay ODST next.

Used a Nerf Longstrike as a base, with a PVC pipe barrel replacement in the Recon barrel. The scope was made from the Longshot scope. Any non Stock Nerf parts on it is made using my normal cardboard method. I used Grey Spray Primer, with a combo of acrylic and Citadel paints (did not have access to Citadel Airgun). And tomorrow I will finish it with Spray Varnish/Sealant.

It still operates as a Nerf gun, but due the long barrel, its pointless, even with internal mods.

Next mod will be the ODST custom Magnum. I'm making it from a Wii stick accessory.

good idea to convert nerf gun into sniper, 'cause nerf guns has already good detailing. One little thing that bothers me a little, very little. I can see that nerf logo, but that's not so big deal.

You should find a way to use an HPA tank and make this operable.

Very nice, I'd customize one of mine but my father refuses to allow me believing they'd be worth more money in a few years as the original guns.
Well, I'll get my hands on two longshots and see how he stops me then ;)


Looks nice, one thing that bugs me - other than it's inability to propel the dart out of the barrel - is I think the light grey on the mid-section of the gun is too light. Might just be me but I think it'd look just a smidge nicer if the grey was darker ;)

Thanks. Yeah, the non-shoot-ability is pretty lame. As for the paint job, I hear jah on this. At the time of painting though, I only had those shades of grey and a limited time before a huge convention weekend. I will probably repaint it after deployment.

Thanks for the link but 2 problems with that:

1). Even with mods, the long barrel kills the dart's momentum
2). I've done body mods that I cannot reverse, so its too late for anymore internal mods

Nice modding, but are you saying when you glued the piping in place it stopped the Nerf from firing?
In which case, maybe you could have found a covert way to screw the pipe in place?
Anyway - good job :)

Thanks,

No, what I am saying is there is not enough force behind the gun's internal mechanisms to launch the dart all the way out of the barrel. The 'sniper' barrel makes it difficult for the dart to pass through. The best way to put it is that, unlike real guns, which longer barrels allow the bullet to shoot further and more accurately, shorter barrels on Nerf guns allow to shoot further becuase there is less friction for each dart.

Ah- Well that's essentially what I said :D
So it fires, but the nerf rounds(?) slow down to a stop in the barrel and jam it right? I wonder what would happen to a nerf round if it had the same propellant as a proportionally-sized round? (I mean apart from melting and disintegrating) lol

Yup, I used a Nerf Longstrike as a base w/ parts from the Recon and Longshot. Also some outside materials.

Yes, and no, it fires, but there's not enough force to push it out of the long barrel...

It would be, but at this point, i would have to include some sort of actual propellant. Modding the insides like normal Nerf Mods still doesn't do anything with the sniper barrel...

You can learn from it, whatever is holding it back you can try fix if you mod another nerf gun in future.

Well, I've worked with internals mods a bit. And even with modding the internals of the Longstrike, the main problem exists is the long 'sniper rifle' barrel. There's just not enough air pressure and force to push the dart all the way through then out the normal distance. The barrel is about 36in itself, while the whole thing is 66in long.
