Most of my Armory is ready to go, but I set aside this Longshot in the hopes of making some mods to it that would be decent for the indoor game scheduled for Saturday in the Music Building on campus. Modifications include standard removed Air Restrictor, dead space and lock removal, padded plunger head, and, driving it all is a spring from a Big Bad Bow. I didn't double spring it since I still want to be able to one-hand prime this with the bolt-action I love so much.
Also, to make it sturdy under the pressure of that strong prime, I blocked the stock with a cut-to-fit piece of wood. The block can be removed easily by simply removing the screws in the back. It's super solid and prevents the common issue of having the stock retract under pressure (especially with a strong spring in there).
Other plans for this project, after I get the kit in, are to make this blaster look "Elite". I'm a big fan of blue blasters, but I want this Longshot to remind this generation of players that an Elite blaster already existed before the Retaliator, Rampage, and Hailfire. Plus, I think the white stripes on the Elite blasters just look cool, as I've got a soft spot for blue blasters in the first place.
The video should be ready to play by ~5pm Central Standard Time
