      Man, That just looks so fun to do. I really do want one, but don't have the time to do this with school and pet and babysitting. If you want, I can so pay you to do one. I want to see the Nerf Raptorstrike done in a black with red and yellow stripes.

    Great Job! I would have painted the yellow parts a deep bronze and high lighted tat with copper. But you definitely made a great rifle.

    I like how this Nerf rifle looks, so I just checked Amazon to see if they had any. It's discontinued by Nerf and it costs about $450 for a new one. Yikes...

    Adam, do you not wash your hands after painting on purpose for this? i thought maybe it would help with the weathering.

    Takes a toy gun, makes it more powerful and repainted it to not look like a toy anymore.
    Why not just admit you want a real gun, shoot that, and let kids llay with kids toys

    I modded a NERF gun too, but I just changed the spring and did a respray, by god mine didn't look as good as his, but it looked ok, I didn't make it rusty, instead I just made it black and blue, and weather and shaded it a little

    I'm pretty sure you had to slide the grenade launcher on the bottom of the rail, notice how there was an opening at one side of the rail.
