    Hi all,

    I don't know if this method has been tried yed, so I may aswell!

    What you will need:

    Alpha trooper grip (unscrewed)
    Tarzan's Grip Glue (any glue or epoxy is fine)
    LS Front gun handle
    Phillips head screwdriver

    Note: As I have already done this mod, I will only show some steps with pictures, but the method is pretty simple.

    Step 1: Unscrew the Alpha Trooper's priming handle.

    Step 2: Unscrew the LS FG's handle and take the trigger mechanism out. Sand down the top of the handle so that it sits flush with the A.T Priming handle.

    Step 3: Glue (or Epoxy) the LS FG handle to the A.T handle like so.

    Step 4: Let the glue/ epoxy dry and put the gun back together!

    Alpha Trooper: Priming handle grip. Img00011

    Voila!

    All done, I like this mod very much as it helps with the slamfire ability.
    I am thinking of doing an integration (S.S or something).

    This mod was done in 15 mins, with 1 hr to dry (quick method, look on glue packet).

    Thanks all,

    MRGenie

    I used duct-tape to achieve the same result

    Nice writeup!

    Is it strong enough to withstand wars?

    If you leav it dry, then yes, it can withstand quite a force. I would reccomend 2 applications of glue/epoxy for maximum strength.

    Nice work!


    Maybe you could also epoxy putty fill the top part of grip and use self tapping screws for a cleaner look.
    Haven't done it myself but I don't see why it wouldn't work.

    Yes, I am working on a bondo/epoxy putty mix to fill in the gaps up the top to make it look flush, then a paint job is required (digital camo) which I will post on the thread once finished!
    I have done an exceptional job of making it lined up (if I say so myself) so more screws is not necessary.
    Thanks for the comments and critiques,

    Looks sick bro! Hope you made it so you can still unscrew the slide, cause it'd be a shame to wreck it.

    Haha, well done MRGenie, you obviously have the same idea as I did.

    Alpha Trooper: Priming handle grip. Foo_fi15

    However were you just using quick-dry epoxy glue alone? Let me warn you, it is not strong enough for repeated priming. Why? Because I used the stronger 3-day epoxy glue on mine, and after a number of harsh priming, the LSFG-handle came off. What I then had to do was reapplied the 3-day epoxy glue again between the priming handle and the LSFG-handle, applied hot glue inside AND inserted a screw inside each half of the handle grip. Now that should reinforce it

    I used a different kind of adhesive (some type of f*%^ing strong glue, 2 applicatiions lasted it through a recent war at my party (lol, it was insane) and it still works fine. I am going to Mitre 10 tomorrow and am going to get some stuff :D, so I will look in to some nail/screw ideas there (thanks for the tip, guys) and will add some type of epoxy/ redo the glue again just to be sure and obviously, the glue is paint able so it will look like it is meant to be <3. Do you have a stronger spring in yours? If yes, then a breakage would be understandable but I am using the stock spring with the plunger wrapped in 1 cm of e-tape so I haven't the need to prime it that badly.

    wow, that looks pretty amazing! Any hints on the technique you used for the camo?

    Yes, there is why you have broken yours...... I am poor (lol not) so I can't get the black tac springs at the moment, but I might get one of oznerfnerd's eBay springs once I move.

    UPDATE: I have done a combo of 1st layer super glue (2 applications), then I have made the combo smooth by filling it in with plastibond (only just finished), leaving it to dry overnight, and will post pics of completed gun in the morning. :D's all around

    Thanks for the advice/critiques guys!

    There are YouTube videos you can find that show you how to paint digital camo. You will need spray cans or airbrush, I use airbrush. I printed several copies of black and white digital camo pattern on self-adhesive inkjet printable paper. Cut out those patterns with exacto knife and stick them on the surface where I want to paint the pattern. For this AT, I sprayed a base colour of tan, applied the adhesive pattern, sprayed a coat of brown, applied more adhesive pattern, sprayed a coat of green, applied more adhesive pattern and finally some black. A base primer and a couple of final coats of clear coat are applied of course.

    it is more of a under layer sortof thing, the plastibond works wonders with integrations and stuff.

    Nah mate you don't do undercoats with adhesives (generally!) the chain is only as strong as it's weakest link. Superglue is pretty bad with any repetitive stress, you want just epoxy, or just whatever the strongest stuff you can get is. If I was doing this i'd go with e-putty filler and screws as other people have suggested.

    Also I dunno why people do this to their handles anyway. Just hold the AT foregrip in your right hand and make like you're fapping an elephant! fapfapfap! Ah well, each to their own.

    Thanks for the tips mate! I am a noob at the whole nerf thing, and I have just done the final paint job on it (yet to be revealed :)) so I have'nt the time or tools to do the screw thing, all I did is fill the gaps/space in with plastibond...... IMHO I am not going to do much else as I am not getting a new spring (thanks allowance...) so the force used on the handle will be minimal (IMO).

    Thanks for the tips and help guys.....

    Well,
    1. The way you load the clips
    2. and from past experiences the alpha-trooper always out does the raider in about every thing except dart capacity
    3. It's up to personal preference, I prefer AT

    You are right, the AT does beat the Raider in everything but ammo. And epicness.
