Nerf Vortex Nitron mod by M1K3RU Nerf Vortex Nitron mod by M1K3RU
Now available for purchase on etsy!: www.etsy.com/dk-en/listing/230…

My primary firearm for a recent LARP scenario set in the Firefly universe.
I am very satisfied with this blaster even though there is still room for improvement when it comes to mods.

These pictures are taken after two days of use at the scenario, so i have done some minor repairs of the paint.


Modification list:

- LED-Display Voltmeter mod (continuously updating display showing the current total battery voltage. This is turned on/off with a switch on the back of the blaster. The switch indicates its state with a green LED).

- Key-operated power switch (rendering the weapon useless if stolen ingame during the scenario)

- UltraFire CREE XM-L T6 LED Flashlight mounted with a 25mm tactical rail mount (have proven invaluable when it comes to battles in dark areas)

- Used to have a small laser mounted next to the flashlight (activated by a remote switch on the front handle), but i had to remove this when i discovered that mounted lasers are apparently illegal in my country.

- Voltage mod ready (for now it refuses to run on the 3x 4.2V Trustfire 18650 batteries i have fitted inside it. Working on a fix, and running on standard batteries until then...).

- Leather wrapped handles for optimal grip.

- Custom paint job. Worn metal.



My sidearm for the same scenario can be found here...

Glad you like it =)
It's an "UK metallic paint" of the color "antique silver" drybrushed on a black coating (very dry drybrushing).

I personally hate this gun most out of the 4 Vortex guns but you did such a fantastic job on this that I may have to put aside my hatred just this once. Its amazing.

I agree that it requires a decent voltage mod to make it fire remotely decently.
With such a voltage mod it's actually reasonably stable and packs a punch at moderate ranges (at long range the discs still slow down considerably).

Glad you like my mod. I enjoyed both creating and using it =)
