How would you trick one of these out?
I've finally got a character who can afford one, and it'd be nice to make it a DOOZY.

so, beyond the initial 26k price tag, what else would you spend on it?

Just a quick note, are you aware of the 24F availability (the 12F is a typo)? Good luck finding one! No sarcasm implied, have fun :)

Off the top of my head?

An Advanced Safety System with the Electro Shocker option; because The Shocker! :)
A bayonet! Nah, just kidding :)
The Gecko Grip modification; because having your 30k nuyen rifle shot or swiped out of your hands would suck...
The Improved Range Finder system; expensive, but a persistent range reduction of one that doesn't require a take aim action? Sign me up!
A Safe Target System; because you don't want to railgun your friends by accident...
A sling! For the same reason as the Gecko Grip, but spec-ops stylee!
Tracker. Just because it would suck to have this piece of tech stolen...
Underbarrel chainsaw! Because come on :)
Underbarrel flamethrower! BECAUSE COME ON! :D

Seriously, though, the chainsaw and flamethrower are interesting options, but the grenade launcher is probably a better option since it uses the same skill as the rifle itself.

Oh, and protip;

Since I'll be the GM where Poindexter will be using this particular weapon, I think I have some unique insight in this case :-)

i'd be tempted with an underbarrel grenade launcher and load it with flashbangs/smoke for utility. safe target system is a bit of a no-brainer; def dont want to instagib your team mates.
external smartgun makes sense too!
