The "ShortStrike": A Minimized, Elite-ified LongStrike

A few weeks back we got an email asking if we could build another elite-ified LongStrike, and it we could make it more pistol-like buy lopping the front off. We said yes (duh). I give you (what has been done individually but probably never together) - The ShortStrike. It's nothing short of a modified Retaliator though (haha, punny).

  • Front minimization 
  • Retaliator internals transplant
  • OMW 2x spring and 2x catch spring 
  • Stock quick-lock mod
We're sending it back to the owner, who wanted to do his own cosmetic work, but we beautified that hole in the front end up pretty well. There's also some process and comparison photos here, but it's all the finished at the bottom. Also, only one half of the priming bar was sent to us, so that's what is pictured.

Elite-ified internals, pre-minimization.
End result.

Size comparison to a Retaliator.
Size comparison to a full LongStrike.
Size comparison.
Size comparison.
Size comparison.
