The Black Recon: Mission Failed?
Operator Osiris teamed up with Da Vinci to spray paint their Recons today. The base coat was Nippon Black Knight paint which would be useful for future camo paintjobs. However the coating on the muzzle and butt stock was a bit too thick as despite taking precautions by taping the end of the gun where the stock would be attached to the pistol, it is still a pain to remove the butt stock once attached. Furthermore a splat of paint on Osiris’s pistol’s muzzle caused the barrel to be stuck when attached.
This means that the gun would most likely be in rifle mode permanently and would be impossible to repaint or mod. Furthermore, with the barrel extension attached, the Recon’s distance is greatly reduced although its accuracy does improve at short range.
Today’s lesson for all Nerf troops – if you’re planning to paint your Recon, do remember to tape up the muzzle, end of the gun and the inside of both the butt stock and the barrel.
