View Full Version : "VS2 Halfback Project" Revealed

A few months ago I started a halfback project on my VS2. A few of you guys might remember me posting about this before. There's also a thread on PBN (http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=2516207) that shows the progression of the project from start to finish

I started off with a stock VS2 that my brother bought for me. I saw a few halfback pictures and thought that I would give it a try. We had a dremel laying around so I just started grinding away at it. I wasn't too happy with the original milling because it was too blocky for my taste so I changed the lines a little bit. With help from OneUp, I was able to come up with a unique design that was pretty challenging.

The body is pretty cool, not liking the trigger guard though.

"To each his own." I was trying to make "fangs" but it was pretty tough to get the dremel in there. Next step is to strip and polish the eye covers, and possibly a new LPC (because the stock one is pretty fugly).

Oh well... we know who's going to win next month both here and PBN.... not like I won't have the time. ;)

I had a bit of free time today so I spent an hour or so on the eye covers. I stripped the old anno off using the dremel & drum sander (120 grit), sanded it down to 1500 grit, then polished using a dremel, buffing wheel & vornex rouge. Final polish was done with white rouge. I'm not worried about the LPC not being an exact match because I will repolish everything (frame, eye covers & LPC) once I have all the parts in. Here is how she looks with the newly polished eye covers.

I ended up ordering the Shocktech LPC, but I messed around and polished (and reshaped) the stock LPC. I never liked the flat ovals on the stock LPC so I grinded (or is it ground....hmmm) them off and made it concave all the way around. I think the roundness of it matches better with the rest of the marker. I still think that the shocktech will look nicer, but this doesn't look bad either. It would have been much easier if I had a lathe, but I guess it still turned out well with the dremel. Polished it up the same way I polished everything else. In the pics, the frame looks shinier, but that's just the lighting. The eye covers, LPC & feedneck clamp are actually a bit shinier.

I probably won't do anything other than installing a black CP trigger, black swivel macroline fittings, shocktech LPC (that I will polish), and shortening the top cocking pin. All the parts should be in this week. I have another VS2 body & frame that I plan on toying with soon.
