Nerf M4 Carbine Recon by Gavinlimkj Nerf M4 Carbine Recon by Gavinlimkj
MORE PICTURES (And my whole WIP journey): [link] :)

Finally finished with this project :) *Cool story*: I originally attempted an M4 with my recon last year. It was not very accurate, just a grey repainted recon with a raider stock. So I revisited the idea recently, around the 2nd week of May. *End of coolstory*

Features: Recon fires around 60 feet flat without a barrel, probably 55+ with the barrel (Using stock Streamline Darts). Has a removable flashlight mount, working laser (reverse side), and a carry handle. Flashlight mount supports most flashlights (It's basically a hose clamp). Extendable buttstock (like a normal Raider), and a bipod pops up from below the foregrip (again, an original feature from the Stampede).

This recon was heavy on scratch-building. As for "base" Nerf parts, I used a Recon+barrel+mag, Raider stock, and a Stampede foregrip. Everything else was then built from scratch. No airsoft/replica parts were uses, and I'm pretty proud of that :)

Painted with a combination of sprays and hand-paint. Sprayed flat black using Anchor Brand paints (Asian brand) and painted/weathered with Tamiya and Mr Hobby paints. Colours used includes Burn Iron, Gunmetal, Metalic Grey, Chrome Silver, Flat Black and stuff like that :)

Wow, that's a long description. >_< Hope you liked it. ;)

That is just brilliant! I've seen ALOT of AR's but that's the first time I've ever seen a nerf gun look extremely similar to the real thing. If it had a forward assist I would have mistook it for the real thing.

Thanks! :) I guess there are many more realistic Nerf to replica conversions, could look much better with the help of replica parts. But my goal was to make it realistic without the use of replica parts. :)

That looks BRILLIANT! Please tell me how you do the carrying handle and the side rails?

Thanks! The side rails are electrical trunking, cut with the grove designs. The handle is a combination of plastic and wood. Check my WIP gallery to find it :)

Ah. Lol. Gun rules aren't as strict here... Sure... You can't own an airsoft or legit firearm, but as for plastic ones, there are many sold in stores without an orange cap. XD

Wow. Impressive work, the joints between the original parts and the modifications are truly clean and the result is truly beautiful. Congratulations!

Thanks! This was a 2nd attempt... the 1st was pretty crap... I've learnt from then. XD Everything is filled out with plastic sheets and putty.

Dude! Friggin awesome job. That carry handle turned out excellent too - great job all around, inside and out.

Thanks! :) The carry handle was made from wood and styrene-like plastic sheets. The mount is real fragile though. Stays on and all, you can still prime and shoot, but it does not allow carrying via the handle. Small sacrifice to still allow the rail to accept Nerf tactical rail accessories.

Who carries with the handle anyway! It looks awesome and comes off for tactical configurations.

You piece is uber-delux because of the performance focus as well as scratch-built parts and detailed weathering... makes a great prop for cosplay AND dominates the battlefield.
