Marco Ent. PR upgrade

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...

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.

Sweet. That's some nice modding. :) I've got a stunt PR from a board member that I plan to spruce up a little. Add LED counter (static). Add shotgun trigger. Some small things. Thanks for the extra incentive.

Thanks. :)

It was a lot of work adding in the mods, and making it so they could function, but man it really adds to the look.

And it's fun to be able to slap the magazine in and snap the bolt back, then fire up the counter.
