    *Free Solution*

    If you register to Rockstar socialclub and link it to your xbox live account, you will have the assault SMG unlocked, available for free in any ammunation and you will be able to upgrade it for free.

    EDIT 1 : Thanks o Smeds o for the info.

    Make sure you equip everything, tints included. It won't unlock until you have used them all.

    EDIT 2 : Thanks ADaughen for the info

    Works with Special Edition/Collector's Edition guns, too.
    You only need to apply one of the tints; so, just one of each of the modifiers.

    Spaceman JdogAt first I thought it wasn't there because before I started browsing the weapons it wasn't there. But after you start browsing look on the far right wall and it is the only gun on that wall and it and all the upgrades are free to purchase.

    To earn this achievement, simply walk into an Ammu-Nation store with $400. Buy the Sawed-off Shotgun for $300, and customize it with an Army Tint for $90. Since the Sawed-off Shotgun has no other accessories aside from another tint, you'll get the achievement right after buying the first tint.

    hugo3104Register in Rockstar Social club gives you a free gun that you can mod as you want, you just have to link your Xbox account (you can link your FB or Twitter account if you want, i didn't do it) ...
    No money to spend for this achievement ...
    The social club permits you others things like haircut (1 original for each personage), purchase cars mods, ....
    You can see your progression, the missions you've done, the hobbies ...
    There are so many things to do, it's a good help for playing.
    Good game !
