Nerf Project: Alpha Trooper Pistol
Turns out there aren't any Alpha Trooper pistol mods, or at least any that I've seen, so this is uncharted territory... and even in the concept phase of this project I realized why. The internals for the AT extend further into the actual barrel, making a simple pistol mode like that we see in the Raider much more complicated and risky. In the picture, you can see the cut-down Alpha Trooper shell for the size I want to use with this, but the essential parts needed for the Clip System breech are still extending out further. On top of finding a different way to prime this (likely a pull-back prime or Bolt-action), the challenge will be minimizing the internals without causing problems for the clip system.
