I shall now run through the construction of this fearsome weapon so that, if you so desire, and have the ability to make one, you to can put pure terror into your friends and foes alike.
The materials you will require.
1x LongShot Scope Attachment with Tac Clip in one piece.
1x Barricade. This is the recommended weapon for this intergration, but anything with a top mounted rail clip will do.
1x Container of Araldite or other epoxy substance.
1x Sharp cutting impliment.
1x Your wits
2x Steady hands and grip
1 or more 5cmx2.5cm Metal pieces
WARNING: This modification requires a great deal of cutting and slicing, along with the use of very poisonous bonding materials, and is such, this modification is to not be taken lightly. SnowDragon, or any of his affilates take no responisiblity for injury and/or death occuring from this mod. Attempt at own risk
Now, onto the actual guide. I shall post pictures whereever I can.
Step One: That bi-pod's gotta go.
First step to any intergration. Make short work of that bipod and entire foregrip section under the barrel by cutting the living **REDACTED** out of it. Simple step, be careful when making the cuts. Once it's removed, sand it all down until it's smooth to the touch all over. Ensure you leave the gaps in the framework, as they are needed later. The bipod legs make excellent paperweights, if I do say so myself.
Step Two: Read my lips; Kill the scope.
Step two is retriving of the tac rail clip that makes this modification what it is. It must be completely undamaged or the stability of the modification will be compromised. There are two orange end caps at each end of the longshot scope. Make two cuts on each of these in line with the mould lines of the rest of the scope. Once this is done, unscrew the screws to open the two halves and remove the rail clip. The scope now also makes an excellent paper weight
Step Three: Glue that SOB
Now we get to the fun part. Get out your Araldite/epoxy and get it mixed and ready. Face the rail clip forward along the gap in the Longshot frame, that is, the long extended bit with the tooth sticking out facing towards the end of the barrel. It will slot into the gap nicely with the two 'legs' of the clip sitting on either side. Make a guideline with a pen around the edges of the clip where it sits. The very backmost section of the rail clip must be no closer than three centimetres to the angled section of the Longshot, where the magwell sits. This is extremely cruical, as too close, and the Barricade (And anything else for that matter) Will not fit.
Once it's lined up, straight and measured, epoxy the small metal sheet or other hard flat thin object inbetween the large overhang with the tooth and the longshot itself, as far back as it will sit. Once this is done, epxoy the rest of the rail clip down. Once it's securely down, it's a waiting game.
In my case, 16 hours later when the Araldite was dry, it was almost good to go. One layer of Epoxy is not strong enough to withstand the weight and movement of both guns. You will need to place a second layer of epoxy over the first, securing it to the longshot. In my case, it was a case of Araldite combined with a second covering layer of epoxy putty that finished the job. Wait another 16 hours before attempting to put ANY kind of stress on this bond. With this patience, you ensure that nothing short of a **REDACTED** saw could break the bond you have created.
The end result should look something like this.
Step Four: Make it fit, dammit.
With the Clip set back so far for comfort issues, the only way to mount a Barricade is by using it's rear section of the tactical rail. You will notice, as you try to hook the Barricade to the clip, there are two prongs in the middle of this otherwise perfectly sized section. Cut those bastards out with a small knife, it'll be a quick job.
Step Five: **REDACTED** **REDACTED** Up.
You are now the proud owner of a LongStorm CS-MF, a select few who weild these awesome weapons of great destructive power with itchy trigger fingers and witty one-liners. Welcome, Brothers and Sisters, to the end of your foes. Removing of the Barricade only requires a small, thin bladed object, like a knife or flathead screw driver. Slip it under one side of the clip and apply a little force to pull the clip side up and then pull the Barricade out with a small twist, it'll just pop right out.
