    Dec 9, 2008, 2:45 PM - sidearm question #1

    Hello,

    I was wondering what the overall lenght of the sidearm is (from end to end ) or what everyone elses is in average? I have a Nintendo Zapper that I have gotten and am going to replace the plastic barrel with an old aluminum flagpole tube. I just need to know the overall length it should be in the end.

    Thanks in advance,

    Stussy

    Does 12 inches sound right from end to end? I believe I have read this on here a while ago, but cannot seem to find it now.

    Hey stussy,
    My NES zapper after-mod is almost exactly 11" long.
    But I think 12" is probably a safer length to go with. At the moment, my side arm barely o=pokes out of the bottom of my holster. I'm pretty sure(from the ref pix I've seen) it should protrude atleast an extra inch out of the bottom.

    That's what I was thinking too. WOF's templates shows 12 inches. That's what I'll go with. I found a screw on tap spout that looks like a miniature silencer that might look pretty cool to put on the end of it. Not screen accurate, but I will see what it looks like.
