THE Remedy Metal Stainless Steel Longshot Kit: #57

So, after about 2.5 months of waiting and nearly $200 later, my Remedy Metal stainless steel Longshot kit came in the mail today. Needless to say, I skipped my 4:30 class to install this baby.

I can't even begin to describe how perfectly implemented the entire kit is. The welds are spot on, all pieces are the exact correct dimensions, everything fits smoothly, and best of all, the stainless steel finish is an eye catcher, it's almost a shame that I had to pack it into the shell of a Nerf gun.

After full install (and a 5kg OMW LS spring addition to the included k26, soon to be a 10kg spring), this thing is shooting like it might as well be a real gun. It is calibrated to Elite darts, but even at this power level they whiz on by and eventually spin out of control (however I haven't seen any fishtailing). PakD darts on the other hand, both stefans and full lengths, are hitting well over 100+ feet flat, and dead straight, with stopping power to spare when they hit the target. It's my new favorite gun, and gave one of my Longshots something to live for again (cause let's be honest, when that Centurion releases, everybody's gonna have a stock gun shooting 100+ feet).



More pics after the jump.




It is currently installed in an unfinished LS I had sitting around (codename: the DerpShot), but come May you'd never know this was even the same gun.

  1. Maybe Rm can make the Centurion hit 200ft and use both regular and megas!

  2. So you still have it and if so, are you willing to sell it? Willing to pay top dollar.

    1. I still have it, but not interested in selling it.

    2. Considering that this was the last kit produced before RM went under, so it will never be made again, the least I'd let it go for is $500. Xplorer is still selling similar air tight sealed breech kits for nearly $700.
