    Nerf Double Prime LS

    Post  Ungmon on Fri Oct 14, 2011 1:33 pm

    As many as you know,once one removes the 'double prime lock' from the Longshot, it may only be primed via the left bolt handle, seeing as I am left handed and I hold the handle with my left hand, this is extremely annoying for me.

    So I opened up my longshot and stared at the 'double priming lock' for a good time, afterwards I realised one side is slightly angled, this is most likely the angle that allows you to easily close the breech.

    I looked at anonther side that was just a 90 degree angle it was essentially just 'a corner of a square' due to this angle it would not allow the bolt to be primed a second time.

    I still dont fully understand how it works but heres what I did.


    I simply just sanded down 'the corner of a square' to make it much more rounded allowing the bolt to be primed a second time however still allowing the gun to be primed either side.

    Heres some more pictures


    Enjoy lefties!

    Thanks to Napolean for notifying me why this common problem occurs, that is not being able to prime from the left side.

    You've made us proud today ungmon, that looks like a handy mod (plus I always wondered what that bit did :S ).

    P.S. Nice profile pic, who took that?

    You need a cooler looking BBUMB. No offense lol. It looks kind of 'protruding'. I'm sure it works great though =).

    Yep I leave this piece in (also a lefty) now but I never thought about shaving it down like that, will have to do that in the future

    This is awesome. I had to use both hands to prime it because i'm a lefty and can't use it to prime. It'd jst feel awkward.

    Hmmmm... interesting (yet simple) solution, good for you Ungmon for deducing what was necessary!


    What's with all these lefty Nerfers? I'm a lefty too but priming the LS doesn't present any difficulties for me perhaps I'm ambidextrous somewhat LMAO


    EDIT: I've just noted that this particular "DP lockout" mechanism is the root cause of the intermittent priming cycle jam my LS had been experiencing prior to it's sale, seems it doesn't always return (or reseat) sufficiently preventing the boltsled tail sliding through it...



    EDIT 2: I found that bevelling the bottom section of the lock (inside the square area) remedied the locking up bolt-sled issue whilst retaining an "priming interference" that prevented the priming handle accidentally falling out of the "ready position"...


    EDIT 3: Seems the plunger wasn't fully retacting into the cylinder during the firing cycle (lube had dried), this turned out to be the ultimate reason for the initial priming jam... never mind I like being able to open up the breach during a priming cycle...
