Yellow Longstrike Barrel Extension

So earlier I was complaining about how arguably the best looking Barrel Extension that Nerf has ever made is molded in a color that doesn't match the other blasters it can go on.  I really wanted to get a unified look out of my favorite blaster setup: the Nerf Spectre w/Raider stock and Longstrike Barrel.  So I finally decided to just go with repainting the Longstrike's blue panels yellow.

The process I used was simple:  sand off the digital camo on the Longstrike barrel with a thick grit sandpaper and then smooth it all over with a series of lighter sand paper types.  Then prime and paint the panels yellow and re-assemble the barrel for a Longstrike Barrel that'll look good on a Recon, Spectre, Deploy, or even a yellow Longshot.  I'll have more pictures up later once I find all the parts I wanna mix and match with.  Wanna see a certain combination?  Leave it in the comments and I'll see what I can do!


  1. Looks like it matches pretty well. What kind of paint did you use?

  2. @ Skurj, I used Model Masters Yellow #1214. Just about any "Yellow" paint should match it though. It's what I had lying around. In certain lights it doesn't look like it matches well, but it's good enough for me (until I can find a better paint or something)

  3. coool that turned out really well! I love the setup yo have there already. I totally want to see a recon with that same stock and barrel combo though, but with the element ex-6 scope as well.
