    Just as a warning about guns, firstly, they need to be starwarsy, yes the Stormtrooper blasters were modified Sterling machine guns, but a highly recognised gun might get you into a little bit of trouble with the local law enforcement division.

    The less it looks like 20th century weaponry, the less chance you'll have a real gun pointed in your face

    Your armor looks really good. I like all the drawing you made especially the one of your friends.You could be and artist in my opinion. Like the last guy said you need to make them starwarsy so that the police dont have a special photo shoot of you back at the station. in one of your drawings it looks like you put the front of a nerf longshot on to a M16 cool but people may freak and call the cops. You could try removing the mag and puting it in the side or add tons of leds everywhere. LEDs are your friend but i cant soder so i have a friend do it.

    Yeah point taken. I have a plan for avoiding issues with LE. I will be keeping the orange muzzle for one, since that is required by law. I will also have a backup weapon for areas where that could be a legitimate problem due to local laws. I have issues with the "real gun look" claim because the constitution here in the US says that I can legally own and carry a firearm, it's the 2nd Ammendment. Mine is modified enough and marked as required by law to indicate that it is in fact not "real steel," and... I am making no attempt to conceal it. Also, I see the guys in SG-1 and Atlantis costumes as well as GI Joe and other 20ish century costumes carrying their P90s, M16 types and other kit into cons without any difficulty. So, I'm not too worried about it. I do however have an extra Nerf Recon that, with a few mods, the Longshot barrel and the new Stock coming out with the rapid fire Nerf gun will provide me with a reasonable faxcimilie. My plan tho, is to stick with the modified M4 carbine, using all legally required markings. Thanks for the input guys, I really do appreciate it!

    do you play airsoft? since your using airsoft guns i mean. i play and have a steyr AUG, love but wannt some more rails for it... you can never have enough rails
    I do actually, but... I'm one of the guys who hates hanging stuff off the rifle if I don't have to. I have used a stock M4, an MP5A5 and a variety of sidearms. I don't have any of them anymore tho, I am working to pick up my modified M4 CQB that I will use for this project.

    ok, just to let everyone know... I'm closing down this thread, will not be posting to it anymore. From now on, any updates to this project will be found in a new thread dedicated to each specific mando as I build them.

    hey iv been reading through your forum and following your progress. im really impressed that your not only building from scratch but that your building 2 sets at the same time. as for the guns i like number 2 the best. if i were you though id ad some sort of scope looking peice to the top. idk why but if you notice that starwars guns always seem to have somthing like that even though noone uses it as a scope (i.e. han solo's, storm trooper's standard blaster, and the rebel vanguard's blaster pistol.) itll also distract from the very obviouse use of an m4 body. just my thoughts. i like the combination of airsoft and nerf. itd be cool to make it still functional when your done. cause then, HEY! you can use your mando rifle for bb wars and it looks cool. just my thoughts.
