    As much as I liked the novelty of a stored rifle, I felt the weapon that came with MP-10 was a little small. So, using a 20th Anniversary Masterpiece Prime rifle, I decided to improve his primary weapon by painting it black and adding an orange LED.

    I used the internals from the TFC Gear of War 2 LED pack that's supposed to be used with Alternity Prime's gun. It took a little dremeling, re-soldering and shimming with museum board to get everything to fit nice and snugly, but there was a perfect amount of space for everything. It's spray painted with flat black Krylon, and I'm still deciding whether to add some silver highlights.

    A shout out to deaculpa for hooking me up with the rifle. :thumb

    Simple enough mod. I like it and I just might have to try this with my MP Prime rifle. Mine is the original Hasbro version.

    That thing must be a bitch to take apart! How did you manage to do that without breaking it?

    I removed the one screw, then carefully pried it apart from the buttstock towards the muzzle. The ring at the muzzle is glued to both halves, but I was able to break the glue to free one half. I wasn't too worried since I knew I'd be painting it.
