My M41A Pulse Rifle project has been around since Nerf Mods & Reviews started their blog and it's always been a work in progress. It's also been my main weapon for the longest amount of time (when it's working, that is!) Last week I finally got around to installing the new Screen Accurate stock during our Mod Night. Yesterday I received two Mag Bottoms made by Noble of the AliensLegacy Forums. These are not only accurate replicas of the bottom, but they're also modified to fit Tokyo Marui Thompson Hi Cap 190 Rd magazines. They actually attach to the bottom of the magazine for a secure fit. They also have a hole in the bottom of them so you can access the tension wheel to operate the Hi-Cap magazine's internal spring. On the version that came with the original G&P kit, you couldn't access this wheel without removing the entire mag cover. The original Mag Cover fell off frequently and only clipped onto the bottom of the Pulse Rifle. Now it fits directly onto the magazine and is secured by the mag actually fitting into the blaster.
|Out with the old, in with the new!|
These pictures show the unfinished Mag Bottoms from Noble. He was kind enough to sand down the outside and put down a layer of primer. I'll paint them later to match the Pulse Rifle's shroud color. They are really nice pieces, even better than I had expected! It's just one more part of making the Pulse Rifle look fantastic once it's done! I'll be doing more work on the Pulse Rifle in the months to come. A full Video tutorial on the operation of this two-in-one blaster will be up once I've completed it.
