    Hi guys,
    As the post title suggests, yes I am totally new to nerf/modding etc and have found your site to be a wealth of information!

    Am am 27 and currently reside in a country town near wagga (i prefer to keep some details anonymous).
    I have recently purchased a longshot with the purpose of doing the 'front-gun integration' with an internal shotgun-boltsled mechanism.

    As I have recently found however there is limited information about such a conversion. This doesn't worry me though as like to learn as I go anyway.

    My real issue though is trying to find out the best way to attach the front-gun pump section to the main blaster.

    Should I use hot-glue, epoxy or something else?

    I would use epoxy glue first to glue then FG on. Once that's dry use epoxy putty to cover the gaps and make it nice and smooth.

    If you can, try using bolts. They will work much better.

    By the way, welcome to Oznerf!

    So, after many hours of carefully creating an internal shotgun mechanism and cutting the LSFG to the right size and destroying a FG in the process... learning experience lol, I come to the part where i need to attach the FG onto the LS shell.

    I appreciate the above posts help, but as this is my first time modding I am being a bit careful and google-ing (is that a word?)other opinions on this matter.

    I have found many different opinions and some don't really tell me all I want to know.
    This is one gem I did find though, and on this forum too!
    BarneyNurfalot wrote:Epoxy putty is great its easy to use and it sets rock hard, one might say too hard. It has no tensile strength. It will break if used in any part of the gun that's not asthethic. There's other putties that aren't quite as easy to use but have a much higher tensile strength good for use in something like a Nerf gun like Selleys Plasti-Bond. It is technically an Epoxy but doesn't say it and as Selleys is the only brand I would buy I thought this would be helpful.

    **Addition**
    Psykka posted after me about "knead it" which is a Selleys brand epoxy putty it will work great cosmetically but again has no tensile strength so on anything that is moving it will break.
    But what confused me a bit is that in almost all of the guide/walkthroughs etc of other nerfers making their longshot integration they dont really say what specific adhesive they used and if it was effective or not.

    So what i'm asking is can anyone who have done a LSFG intergration or similar mod tell me what brand/type of adhesive they used and did it work well/hold together?

    I'm just a bit worried about gluing the shells together then after the first 10 or so shots the shell cracks of comes apart. As I am using the FG pump to prime the LS I suppose there will not be much structural rigidity needed on the shell itself but I though I'd might pick the barin of some of the 'old pro's' on the forum.

    You've got a multitude of options mate. You could glue the FG to main blaster shell with 72-hr Araldite, and then use knead-it or similar to cover the seam.

    Other options include JB Weld if you have it, or quite possibly standard Araldite, all covered with knead-it after curing.

    Plasti-bond has only slightly more tensility than knead-it (etc), and can be a real pain to work with.

    Another option would be using an old soldering iron, and weld the join. If done properly, you won't even need e-putty to cover the seam. Just some time with a rotary tool and sanding drum.

    There's probably a heap more solutions, but these would be my choices.

    Also, when you say "old pro's" - I hope you mean professional's... haha

    Good Luck.

    Cheers,

    Off topic, but you're aware of the Riverina Dart Tag group, right? They operate out of Wagga and regularly run games.
