As a Secret Santa gift for an Imgur user, former MythBuster Adam Savage transformed the discontinued Nerf Longstrike CS-6 from a foam spitting toy into a badass Sci-Fi movie prop.
The mod included a physical makeover as well as the addition of a real scope and an upgrade to the spring and pump action so it shoots “longer and harder”.
Although the final product looks deceptively lethal without its bright plastic colors, Savage took the precaution of adding an orange tip to comply with the law.
The creative process is chronicled in the video below, as is a demonstration by its new owner.
