I purchased a Pulse rifle from Marco Enterprises almost 12 years ago. One day I decided to pull out the LED ammo counter and have it rewired (the way it was wired, it would burn out after about 20 seconds.) Upon doing this, I started getting all sorts of ideas on things that I could change, add on or generally do better. So it began, almost 7 months ago, and I just got it finished. Take a look at this thread on the Aliens Legacy forum detailing the experience... Aliens Legacy thread Here are just some of the photos... Here is a list of all the upgrades that I did to it... -Working main trigger (it worked before, just not as good) -working grenade launcher trigger -mock M870 shotgun body inside cage (with the vents open, you could see inside, I had to do something to make it look more realistic, so I built one out of wood, styrene & PVC pipe for the barrels.) -mock bullets in the magazine -working bolt -added parting line to shroud (all the way around and inside the carrying handle) -added those little plates and allen screws on the front and back of the carrying handle and mag well -new paint job from the ground up -Dremeled out all the vent holes in the Spas cage I realize much of it still looks like it did the day Marco shipped it. I decided that I didn't want to completely re-do the entire thing. I could have purchased much more accurate parts, but then I might as well just build a new one from the ground up. I like this PR, it's been with me for a long time, so I decided to walk a thin line between upgrading it, and keeping it looking somewhat like it's original form. An old friend made better, stronger, faster.
