    Jamone the AfroThis didn’t work for me, so I bought all the upgrades for the SNS pistol instead, worked for me after that

    thatNoseyParkerCan someone provide an actual idiot proof guide, because I’ve fully modded several weapons now and still no pop. Do you need to buy all the tints as well?

    Nv DefinesNo pop. No help from this guide.

    HyyrI purchased a SMG, then all of the mods & tints for it. No achievement. Does this have to be a specific weapon?

    Sabot FoxNot quite idiot proof, but I can point out that it is for Story Mode only, not Online, so you'll have to progress far enough to unlock all the upgrades in the main game.

    RepentantHades7This is not just for Story Mode. In GTA Online I bought the Combat Pistol, Extended Clip, Flashlight, Suppressor, and the Green tint. The achievement popped once I exited the Ammu-Nation store.

    Emotional REXIs this just for sidearms, such as the pistol?

    Drachen77I’m not sure why folks are having trouble with this achievement. This pops during the Trevor mission “Nervous Ron”. This mission begins on two ATVs and you go to the Ammu-Nation store first thing. You get a free sniper rifle, free advanced scope, and free suppressor. Popped right there.

    MetalLlama43I got it to unlock with the bullpup rifle and I was in online mode. I got the extended clip, flashlight, scope, suppressor, grip, and army tint. When I backed out of looking at guns the achievement popped up. I’m not sure if all of those items are needed or not.
