I’ve been prototyping pump grips for a number of blasters, and the first one that’s ready for prime time is the Longshot grip.
The grip is designed to install without any permanent modifications to the blaster shell. You only need to unscrew the bipod legs.
After the initial prototype, the design was refined. A more malleable metal with a clean white coating was selected to ease production and give a better finish. The gripped area was changed from a single curve to several 45 degree bends to ensure a more consistent end product in future reproductions. Unnecessary sharp corners were removed from the design.
The plan is to start making these available for sale this week. Pricing should start around $30 for the base grip, with add-ons such as a rubberized grip or customized graphics available for a surcharge.
Stay tuned! I’ve a number of new prop updates to be posted this month!
