You can turn it into a type of T-22 repeater rifle. You can add a long barrel to make it look more like a sniper rifle. Ditch the clips and cover the hole. Lose the cocking grips.  Pull off the stock and add a different one.

There's lots of things you can do, just be creative. Always look at a pile of parts and think to yourself "Where can I stick this?"

I could see using the front piece for the base of a carbine of some type.  Add some PVC for longer barrels, add greebles and whatnot and it could become a respectable gun.  The main gun, follow Cando's advice: chop, bondo, add PVC and you could be well on your way to something.  It could either become a heavy blaster rifle or sniper rifle depending on what you add and subtract from it.  Look at what others have done and use bits and pieces of anything you see and like out there.  Also, don't be afraid to cut peices off to completely alter the look of the weapon.  This way not only will it conforms to the new Nerf CRLs it will be uniquely yours.

For example I absolutely butchered my longshot front half and used parts of it for my carbine which I combined with a Nerf Recon and a Droid blaster.  Then I atttacked the the main gun with my dremel and used pieces towards a DC-15a clone trooper style long rifle that I'm working on.  The extra parts from it I donated to my other michigan vode for their own projects.

Good luck on your build.

Thanks for the tips. And what type of paint do you use on your guns and armor?

Gunmetal grey, silver, black, combinations of the three. Oh and don't forget to weather your guns too.

I got all my paint at Lowe's:

I used Valspar Plastic primer,  (which goes on clear, weird but it seems to help other paint stick awesomely) valspar for plastic black, rustolieum metallic black, I forget which red spray paint I used for the mythosaur skull and then steel colored model paint for weathering.  Just be sure to rough it all up with sand paper first.  Of course you'll be sanding a lot anyway to remove all the logos and warnings and whatnot.

As a LongShot owner, I like these pictures. My big beef is making it non-functional. I'm upgrading mine right now and I'm looking for a way to keep it as a working gun because I don't want to tear off the cocking arm.

If you look closely at the first one, you'll see the cocking arm is still attached, and the barrel is sufficiently large enough to still pass a nerf dart through.

Sounds good, I want to get a Longshot and mod it into a shotgun/flechette. Honestly that butt of the longshot is what says it's nerf to me... Everyone keeps it though.. Of course modding that could be murder! I myself have only held one once before, and I didn't get to dissect it haha!

Actually, with sufficient hacking and bondo skills that butt wouldn't be too bad.
