Custom Nerf Recon by JohnsonArms Custom Nerf Recon by JohnsonArms
Photo 1/2

Here's my first attempt to build a 40k pistol for a friend. I may do a few more details, but I'm calling this one done for right now! I will upload another photo with better light soon :)

Donor gun is a NERF Recon

The seals were hand made with sculpty clay. The magazine is functional and was made by Bruce Johnson (my Dad! Hehe)

It was, but I had practiced on other styles for a while at this point :)  I hope you stay around to check out the new Bolter pistol that just finished up, I think you'll like it a lot!

I'd be more then happy to have one of them. Though I'd spend more time looking at it and not a lot firing it.

Woa... this is awesome! You did an awesome work, it looks very realistic and I love that it's a Nerf, you combined a lot of things I love :la: did you handwrite the Purity Seal?

This is so cool but I'm afraid to show it to my boyfriend, he'll probably want to make one too XD well except that he would probably do a red one to match his Blood Angels. You are very talented :jawdrop:

I still have some time to play with it, but I was trying to transfer the look from another gun that didn't have all the detail of the recon. I don't prefer to "copy" a design because that happens where it doesn't come out quite the same. I appreciate the input :)

a buddy on FB made them for me from sculping clay. I'm glad you like how they came out. Future ones will probably be CnC, but I like the look of the seal like this especially well. :)
