I’ll admit it, I bought a Nerf Raider just for the drum magazine. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate the Slam-fire feature, but I really just wanted more ammo capacity for my Recon. This left me with the problem of what to do with an under-used Raider.
One afternoon, as I was watching the first Iron Man movie for the third or fourth time, I was struck with an idea. The arm mounted flame thrower on the Mark I inspired my most ambitious mod to date. I call it the Marauder.
I gutted the raider, and sawed off the barrel. I removed the pump action, and reworked it into a bolt action. Then I cut off the grip, and glued the trigger back so that it would always be in Slam-fire mode. Once I was sure that it was working properly, I used two kinds of epoxy to attach the blaster to an armor plate that I had fashioned from a length of 4 inch diameter PVC pipe.
It still needs permanent straps and a finished paint job, but it is fully operational, arm mounted Slam-fire goodness.
I’ll post more pics when I get around to finishing it.
