Mass Effect M-92 Mantis WIP 1-4 by RebelATS Mass Effect M-92 Mantis WIP 1-4 by RebelATS
What began as a Nerf Raider is slowly morphing into the M-92 Mantis sniper rifle from Mass Effect. This was originally a commission for someone in the Mass Effect costuming community I'm in but I love this gun so much that I am making one for myself as well. I'm also working on a third one to sell.

You want to know the best part??? It still fires foam darts! You heard that correctly! A completely modified Nerf gun that can still shoot the darts. I paid special attention to all the moving parts and made sure they would permit the gun to fully function. When I finally finish the paint job, I will take a video of me firing it.

I like using DAS air-drying modeling clay.

Thanks ^_^ I am excited about it still firing, even with the extended barrel and odd addons. I'm working on the paint right now and will have pictures out this week of the finished product.

I'm getting better and better the more I do this. I am no master compared to the people who use power tools and fancy equipment to make theirs but for what I'm doing... and the supplies I'm using... I like to think I'm evolutionary.

The Raider looks better than any other Nerf blaster for the Mantis.

I spent a good three hours staring at all the different Nerf guns before settling on the Raider. I agree that it looks better than any other Nerf for the Mantis but the main reason I chose it was because it allowed me to keep the functioning pieces in place to allow it to still work.
