I just hacksawed off my bipod. Curious, does this ruin any chance of shotgunning it?
Ruin? No. As has been stated, it might make the process a little more involved, depending on the method you choose.
One method it might make easier though is something I'm waiting to try yet, if and when I ever run across a cheap enough Alpha Trooper. My plan is to use the under part of the AT's front barrel with the shotgun style slide and connect that internally (similar to this mod
) to the bolt sled. The fact that I would then have an 18 round drum to use with the LS is a nice bonus.
You could also just use the space for an intergrated secondary weapon.
