Custom Nerf Stryfe by JohnsonArms Custom Nerf Stryfe by JohnsonArms
Here's a custom Nerf rifle that will be used in the filming of an independant movie that starts filming next week. I'll hope to get some screen shots when they're available :)

Hmm, I notice that you use a lot of nerf guns as baseplates

We actually make them in-house for the projects!   They're made with a functional 6rd mag, but really more intended for the look on display or cosplay props.

Oh, we'll do you know how to do a work ready version? I need to find out how to do that and an ak47 style mag...

Nerf darts don't taper like a 7.62 round does, so any bend will cause the darts to crush.  Unfortunately there's no good way to do it without making the the magazine overly wide and therefore unrealistic.

Well, all I need is like a 6 shot that is kind of like the ones you use but longer like an ak47. Any ideas?

That a great looking weapon. I finally got myself a Nerf gun, an "elite strongarm". I was just wondering what paint you use on the moving parts like the trigger. Something strong so the paint dosnt wear off after repeated use?

Unfortunately the plastic they use stops just about any attempt at getting paint to stick.  I personally use a plastic primer for car bumpers, but even that's not fool-proof.  Its just something that's bound to happen if you make these for use and not display.   I hope you'll still have a go at it, those little spots can always be touched up if they happen!

Oh well, thanks for the advice. What paint do you put over the primer?

All paint works for different situations.  Most any rattle can paint acts the same, so my advice is to try them all and see what you get.  You may find that you love using something that I've left on the shelf for years.   That's the great thing about art is that even if you try to emulate a particular style, you own overpowering natural style will eventually win.  Give all the paints a shot and just keep at it until things start to make sense in a way that you'll understand and learn from.  That's the best advice I have to give :)

Ok, but there is stuff that defeatly doesn't work wright? A mate of mine tryed spraying a "Maverick" and the paint didnt apply it just slid off.

Or do they all work and i just have to prime the surface it before hand?

Ah. Well then you are most welcome. Do you know where I might be able to get my hands on a Colt  python non firering or airsoft replica.

There are a number of reputable airsoft site online which I would check out.  I'm not sure about that model specifically, but they seem to have replicated almost everything else so a Python or something similar sounds like a good possibility.   I believe airsplat.com is a good site, but please do your research before you order anything online :)

Rodger that my man. I am going to use one as my steampunk\deislepunk\cyberpunk sidearm aswell as for airsoft squrmishes.

I like the idea!  I did a prop a while back that they call a Luger, but if it is, it's not the classic one I am familiar with.  You might have a look through my photos from a few years ago because it still made for a great Dieselpunk base.   Just might be the ticket if the Python doesn't pan out!

Amazing. You continue to inspire me. I haven;t been able to find the little scope attachment for my nerf guns with the rails. Could you share where you find these. Thanks in advance so much for the help.

I'm glad to hear that! :) The scope attachments are usually found on ebay or through nerf-related message boards. You might have luck with one of those avenues! Good luck to you!

Awesome work here. If I may say so, It looks like the product of what a Russian-based company would make if they decided to make a tactical, fully-automatic Plasma Rifle. The banana clip could be a canister for the plasma, perhaps?
Awesome work either way.

Very interesting idea. I think a new magazine could be made to work off the plasma canister idea!

:icongeorgesconcepts:
GeorgesConcepts Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2013
The large barrel (by comparison to most rifles, anyway) is what brought me to that thought - I figured that the majority of the weight of a Plasma Rifle would be the heat-ventilation things. Maybe there's tinier array of things within the barrel?

Mmmm, tasty. Looks very rugged and military. Screenies are gonna help with this one since in my head I feel like this would be a little small... but then again, I'm automatically thinking of the Stryfe's size without really seeing that there's the equivalent of two more Stryfe-lengths on there, so I get the feeling that in use it'll look excellent.

Thanks bud! It is a bit of a super-pistol, but it does look rifle sized with the barrel extension and telescope stock. I'll let you know if I get some screen grabs after they're done filming :)

For sure! It's always a little hard to tell what direction people are going with the Barricade Family of bases until they're seen in use... they're really neither pistol nor rifle by design. Well, that or the designers didn't succeed in making that distinction evident.
