Frost Blaster (Minor mods/upgrades)
About this creation
If you have not seen the original, I suggest looking at it first! View it here

Hey all, here are some minor mods to the Frost Blaster. The main mods are as follows:

  • Made slide more efficent

  • Changed the release for smoother release

  • Made 3 new attachements





Here is the gun with the new attachments, A fore grip, and two "clips" to hold nerf bullets.



Close up of the attachments. I decided that having a single shot gun without some way to hold bullets was not very effective. I designed two clips to hold 4 bullets each. Then it was a little hard to hold the front of the gun with both clips on, so I made a very simple fore grip.



Mix and Match!



Even more mix and match



So many attachments to choose from.



I redesigned the slide to move better, and be more efficient. I basically took off the top part. I did do some experimenting with gun oil, and it works fairly well with the bigger slide, but this smaller slide is nicer.



I also revamped the rubber band holding pins. They were falling off with large amounts of rubber bands on them, so I made them more solid.



Close up of the clip.



A very simple design. Simplicity is best.



New slide and trigger mech.



Those egg shaped pieces are nice, but with out the top piece of the slide, the catch pin wont stay put, so I had to revamp the catch on the trigger part. I added the pulley wheel for smoother release, with out it, the trigger is hard to pull.

Thanks for looking! Also thanks again to Matthew Oh for the main gun design!

make the slide longer,so it travels with the projectile longer, you'll get more energy and accuracy.

George man Very cool but i love the way you used the word clip when refering to the part that holds the ammo because i do not think anyone on mocpages has figured that out that the part that holds ammo is a "clip" and the part that loads ammo into a gun is a "Mag" or "magizine"
