Custom Nerf Strongarm


Here’s a few photos of a new Nerf Strongarm pistol I’m working on. These are just progress photos, but you’ll hopefully get a feel for where its going, style-wise. πŸ™‚ (the carbon fiber vinyl on the cylinder is temporary for the photo)

This particular model has the full-rollout mod on the cylinder as well as the removal of both air restrictions. It’s become a pretty powerful blaster with those minor changes. Final photos should be up soon and it is available for anyone interested!

Be Well,

Brian Johnson

Foam Melee Props


Hey guys!

So I have been testing paint on foam for some big projects later this year. As a result, I think I have found a good formula to make the these foam weapons “realistic” and pretty durable. Some extended testing will be done, but I feel confident that if you need a cool prop for your convention persona, these should work great.

Email me if you have any interest in placing an order, thanks!

Lots of Props 1-13-13


Photo time! Thanks for keeping up with these projects I hope they’re up to snuff πŸ™‚ Just keep in mind that many of these are not quite done, so stay tuned for the final photos!

Questions regarding commissions can go here, thank you! johnsonarms76@gmail.com

I will also be posting some new videos this evening on YouTube. They show the props in this post if you’d like to see more (and hear me rattle on! Heh). A search for “Johnson Arms” on youtube should find my channel!

Moving Day 11-3-12


So the day has finally come to move into a more proper workspace! Here’s some photos of the chaos and a bit of the stuff I’ve collected over the years, a lot of which I forgot I had, haha.

Now that I have a much higher rent bill, expect to see us making a lot of use of the new room. If you’re ever in the neighborhood, feel free to make a trip over to see it in person! πŸ™‚

Vera 2.0 – Nerf Edition :)


She’s finally finished, folks! As with many of my creations, this was built over a functioning nerf recon body. There are many differences if you go to fine details, but the “look and feel” have been pretty well preserved. I’m not sure anyone has the wallet to build a CNC’ed version of this, but feel free to prove me wrong, lol. I hope you all approve and will look forward to 3.0 when my Dad is ready to tackle another one of these beauties πŸ™‚

Just to give the proper credit to a very talented builder, the images we worked from are of an airsoft replica called “Alice” made by a UK resident named “Joe F” who goes by JoaTrash. His metal version is something to behold and I hope you’ll have a look:

Vera 2.0 Progress


So we began work on Vera version 2.0 over the weekend. The magazine came out so nice, I had to share with all you Browncoats out there! The front barrel is only there as a place-holder as the custom barrel is fabricated πŸ˜‰ A huge thanks to Bruce Johnson for the hard work on the custom work. Apparently this stuff does run in the genes, lol

More progress to be posted soon. Email me if you have some interest in owning version 3.0!

If you can dream it, we can make it πŸ™‚

Custom Longshot progress


Here’s a few photos of a project in working on. One is the just the gun, the other is a result of me goofing around in photoshop. I thought you guys might enjoy checking them out. To be clear, this is not in the game, I just thought it looked like it could fit πŸ™‚

PHOTO AVALANCHE Update! 9/4/12


I’m sorry for the lack of posting recently, it has been a busy time here at Johnson Arms, haha.  I’ve been bad about taking photos, but I hope this edition will show that I’m trying to remedy this.  I hope that some of the secret projects will be post-able soon, but until then, I’ve been trying to keep busy with private commissions.  There’s probably going to be a duplicate in this posting, but I hope it will be the best quality version you’ve seen thus-far, hehe.   Thank you as always for your interest and support in what I do.  You guys make this a lot of fun, even when it’s a stress-facotry πŸ™‚

Thanks for checking them out and I appreciate you telling your friends who dig this kind of stuff πŸ™‚

If you need to reach me regarding a question or commission, please email me directly at [email]johnsonarms76@gmail.com[/email]. I promise to get back to you as soon as I can πŸ™‚


Working in the wet of Florida


Greetings!

I am sorry for any perceived slowdown in weapon production here at Johnson Arms. Lol The weather has been a real problem as the general high-humidity of southern Florida. All that aside, I have been keeping busy and have a few photos to show from the last week. Much more to come, promise!

All the best,
Brian

Shop Update 7-28-12


Hey Folks! Here’s a few of the projects getting wrapped up this week. There’s a few things needing that last 1%, but that shouldn’t keep ya from enjoying the photos πŸ™‚

I’ve had a lot of inquiries about resin replicas this week and I thought I’d let it be known that I can get just about anything if you have the funds! If there’s anything you’ve been looking for, just shoot me an email and I’ll let you know if it’s possible. Thank you very much!

Until next week!
